Shindo Hikaru is an elementary school student with no interests in playing Go; until he meets Toya Akira and is pestered to end by Sai to play Go. He eventually becomes a professional Go player at the age of 14, a year behind his rival.
Part of Hikaru’s strength in playing Go is his “stupid” moves. He makes these mistakes in order to lure his opponent into making what looks like correct moves, which he then uses against them.
Pretty cool cosplay. It’s been more than a year since I lasted posted a Hikaru no Go cosplay, and I’m glad I found a good one. Nice job!
