HikaGo is my favorite.
the only shounen manga that stays on my HDD since the first time i know about scanlation, which is when 15th volume of this manga is still being scanlated. also, the board game it introduces is just awesome. i play it from time to time, compete in few tournament, and teach the basic to friends. so.much.fun!

Those who never read Hikaru no Go before, you better read it.

Introducing a board game that usually played by adults to teenagers is a big risky step. But it turns out that HikaGo can do it beautifully. =)

wah~! hikaru no go~! > w < its one of my old time favorite manga! once I've started reading I couldn't put it down. It was also fun seeing how the artist improved on the art gradually and shown the characters being drawn in a way that you can actually see them growing up as you go along the volumes ^^

Hikaru no Go is still one of my favorites.  I remember the scanslations stopping due to licensing and me being so desperate that I got the script of the last few volumes from the translator, bought the missing volumes raw, and finished off the series that way.  And it was worth all that work! 

I can't recommend this enough, even if you don't think you'll enjoy shounen manga about a board game.

Hikaru no go is still an enjoyable read even if you know next to nothing about go. The story and the feelings of the players are interesting.

Hikaru no Go is one of those interesting managa that has a fairly boring sounding premise and falls under the category of sports. Do not let it turn you off even if you've never liked sports manga or the prospect of reading a series about a kid playing roughly the japanese equivalent of chess. Despite all that it is actually an incredibly amusing read, even for those who may not think they have any interest in such a topic.
