Read full description of the books Hikaru no Go, Vol. 21: Great Expectations:Meh, pretty much a "filler" volume as the players gear up for the Japan-Korea-China Junior Tournament. The only go game of note was Ochi hoisting himself on his own petard to prove himself, thus making the Japanese team Akira Toya, Hikaru Shindo, and Kiyoharu Yashiro.
A bit of tension is rather artificially added to the scenario with a Japanese reporter's interview of Korean go professional Ko Yong Ha. Thanks to an inadequate translator, Hikaru hears that Ko Yong Ha insulted Honin'bo Shusaku (the legendary go player who was tutored by Fujiwara-no-Sai, before Sai came to haunt Hikaru). So now Hikaru feels a need to beat Ko as a matter of personal and national pride.
There really wasn't a lot else to this installment; it's just a prelude to the climax of the series.
Read information about the authorYumi Hotta (堀田 由美 Hotta Yumi, most often written as ほった ゆみ) is a Japanese mangaka, best known as the author of the best-selling manga and anime series Hikaru no Go, about the game of go that is widely credited for the recent boom of the game in Japan. The idea behind Hikaru no Go began when Yumi Hotta played a pick-up game of go with her father-in-law. She thought that it might be fun to create a manga based on this traditional board game, and began the work under the title of Nine Stars (九つの星 Kokonotsu no Hoshi), named for the nine "star points" on a go board. She later worked with Takeshi Obata (the illustrator) and Yukari Umezawa (5-Dan, the supervisor) in the creation of Hikaru no Go. She won the 2000 Shogakukan Manga Award and the 2003 Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize for Hikaru no Go.
