Review: Hikaru no Go, Volume 16: Chinese Go Association (Hikaru no Go #16)

User Review  - Kitsuchi - Goodreads

Not as engaging as other volumes, as we're in a bit of a lull in the story. Still, I enjoyed seeing Isumi's progress, and gosh, that last scene, between him and Hikaru? Heartbreak on a page, and probably hit me more emotionally than the entire last volume. Read full review
