  • I wanted to learn Go, so I paid a go school and started to attend classes once a week with a pro. He was mean, and never let the students win the teaching games. This was frustrating to me, because I was thinking "Why am I paying to lose all the time?" I wished that I had a guardian angel or a ghost that could help me beat him really bad. It was at that moment that Hikaru no Go was born.
    • Interview at the International Go Symposium, 5 August 2012.

Hikaru no Go[edit]

Why I play go? The answer inside me is clear... To link the far past with the far future.

  • All you are is the Go you play.
  • This is the universe! And I'm placing stones one by one on that. Like I'm increasing the number of stars one by one... I'm making the universe. It's like I'm a God. I'm going to become a God! On this Go Board.
    • In the anime, Hikaru says this when he plays in a Go tournament for the first time.
