I know it’s been a while, sorry about that, but you should all be rested up and ready to answer new questions! Let’s do this!



This week’s spotlight character is Ichikawa Harumi!



Ichikawa is the clerk at the Touya Go Salon and seems quite fond of Akira. What do you make of that? Any theories about her?

Discussion! )

Chat is ongoing, so feel free to stop by anytime - your best bet to find us is after five or so PST, the later the better, heh. Enter chat here! Mostly we write and babble, and occasionally still have rewatches, though I need to catch up with the posts - the last episode we watched was the 25-26 double episode. When we do rewatch, it's always on Saturdays at around 7:30 PST - the standard time - if enough people are there and want to watch. But you'll find us playing and writing and inspiring each other pretty much every night of the week! In fact, on some non-rewatch nights, we've hit nine chatters at one time! Clearly this means the rewatch chat is a total success, even if I dropped the ball a bit. :D

So, without further ado, let's discuss Hikago!

Who's up for a rewatch chat? Same time, same place, tonight! 7:30PM PST, guys. Let's rock this!

(And really, I'll catch up with the posts as soon as possible - life has just thrown me one bolder after another - and now somehow, I have a little kid disease. But my little kid doesn't have it. WTF. XDD)

You may have noticed the lack of a rewatch post and chat. There are two reasons for this - one, I lost internet for a large chunk of the weekend, and two, everyone was busy with Easter. So instead, we will have a double live chat this weekend to make up for it! I'll also be posting a discussion post with all four episodes covered. We'll be holding the chat at the same time as we were going to last week, so put on your rewatch boots and get ready for the weekend!

The Epic Hikago Rewatch: Episodes 15 and 16

Gah! Sorry this is so late. I had a paper to write and then I had other things to do, and I got distracted and ugh. But here it is!



This week’s character spotlight is Morishita Shigeo!



Waya’s teacher and a 9-dan, Morishita seems to take issue with the Touyas and those who study with them! Some might say the Touyas are his eternal rivals – only they don’t seem to know it.

What do you think of Morishita and his crew? (Feel free to answer this one with ROT13!)


Get ready for some Net Go!

You guys are seriously amazing. The rewatch chat that officially started at 7:30PM PST on SATURDAY (and several hours earlier unofficially) went for over 30 hours straight, and since then, every single day for SEVERAL hours there have been people using the chat, talking about Hikago, making fic, icons, screencaps with hilarious captions, prompts, encouraging squee, betaing for each other... the list goes on and on. It is truly amazing to see, and I am so absolutely honored to be a part of it - I'm so happy that my wish to encourage people with a community rewatch has actually happened, so happy that so many people have been participating both in the chat and in the discussion posts.

It's been awesome, and it just keeps getting better.

If you haven't had a chance to drop by the rewatch chat, the next chat will be on Saturday, March 31st at 4PM PST. What time is that in the rest of the world? Chat is here!

Many thanks to everyone for making this happen, and for the usual amazing enthusiasm! It's hard to believe this excitable fandom is for a canon that ended nearly ten years ago - I think it's clear that in our hearts, Hikago will never end!

This week’s spotlight character is Kishimoto Kaoru!



Kishimoto, the strongest in the Kaio Go club outside of Touya who still thinks he was right to give up on being a pro. Is this the tremendous wall that separates excellent novice players and professionals? What do you think of Kishimoto? Tell us in the comments!


Okay so this recap is ridiculously long because everything is so important! I feel like I should just hand out a transcript. >.>;

Recap )


Discussion Questions )


A general question – is anyone actually using the recaps? Not that I’ll stop making recaps, but right now, I’m trying, for the most part, to be as pairing neutral and ‘professional’ about them as possible. Which, if that helps you guys, awesome, I’ll stick with that. I’m asking because for me, this is an incredibly boring way for me to write these posts. It basically goes like this: Play five seconds, pause, write something down, repeat. For two episodes. I never learned how to take notes (they tried to force me to in a class in high school, and instead of learning how, I just got a D in the class because WTF, if it’s there, IT MUST BE IMPORTANT, OTHERWISE, WHY THE HELL IS IT THERE AT ALL? And yes, I pass tests because I can just memorize what’s been said or what I’ve read, ahaha) so basically, my recaps are literally just 95% of exactly what happened in the episode and it takes me on average two hours just to do two episodes. If no one objects (and please speak up if you do), I’d like to be a little more full of squee and excitement, because if it’s boring for me to write, I’m sure it’s boring as hell for you all to read. If you have suggestions for a better way to do the recaps, let me know!


Last week in the live chat we had chat doodles and drabbles after the episodes, so you never know what you might be missing if you don’t come! :D For instance, [personal profile] degrees wrote Taking Your Work Home for us right in the chat box! So you should definitely come out, as you never know what might happen! The live chat for these episodes is tonight at 7:30 PST! What time is that in the rest of the world? Chat is here!

This week’s character spotlight is Yun!



Yun, the teacher who oversees the Kaio Go club. He has a sharp mind and is firm, but can be swayed by the children he oversees and has a surprising gentle side to him. What do you think of Yun? Why do you think he let Touya be the third board after expressly telling him no?

Why do you think Mitani cheats? Is there a deeper reasoning?

Cracktastic March: It’s like March Madness, only with crack.

This month, we’re celebrating all the crack in our epic little fandom! Crack fic/drabbles, crack theories, crack pairings – if it’s cracktastic, we want to celebrate it!

Let’s kick this off with some crack drabbles, so we have all month to write them! Plus, since we’re trying to get into the top ten anime/manga fandoms on AO3, this is the PERFECT way to boost the fic count! :D

So have at it – post as many cracky prompts as you want, and be sure to answer some, because this month is all about the crack! Want to write some crack, but no one prompted it yet? Don’t be shy! Post it anyway! Don’t want to write, but have the itch to draw or make a video? Do that instead! The sky’s the limit (as long as you aren’t breaking any laws or anything, heh).

Let’s get cracking! And look forward to more crack posts to come in the following weeks!


Also, the next rewatch chat has been decided – Saturday at 7:30PM PST. What time is that in the rest of the world? We hope to see you there!

This post is for members to arrange their own live chats outside of the official chat times. Please track this post if you'd like to attend live chats organized by other members, or if you'd like to organize them yourself. Chances are, a lot of people won't be able to attend every official chat, so this is a way to organize with other members to have chats at times more convenient times for people in different time zones. Please organize your chats here, and if you organize a chat (AKA two or more people agree to a time), you may make a post on the comm to announce it to everyone. (Please, only post one announcement per chat to keep the comm clean and prevent flooding.) Also, someone should act as the 'host' of each chat - meaning someone who synchronizes play times and makes sure the chat follows basic chat etiquette and that everyone is having fun.

The chat room is here.

Remember to track this post so that you will know when people are trying to organize chats! Hopefully this will help the people in different time zones who would like to attend chats but cannot make it to any given week's official live chat.

If you have any questions about organizing chats, you can ask them here or contact me directly at any time. Don't hesitate to ask!

Have fun, guys!

Based on feedback I received during out last live chat (which was tons of fun), the next live chat for the rewatch is today at 6PM PST! What time is that in the rest of the world? The link to the chatroom is here, courtesy of Aja. It’s Campfire, so you do not need an account and there is nothing to download. Just type in a user name and go!

We'll be watching episodes 7 and 8 this time, and last time some of us continued to chat long after the episodes were over, so feel free to join us late if you like! If for some reason, you cannot access the chat, please post here and let me know and we'll get it figured out.

For those of you who cannot attend but would like to still participate in a live chat, feel free to set up your own - I will make a post that you guys can track for setting up unofficial live chats shortly. Also, I will try to switch up the live chat times each week so that everyone that wants to come will get a chance to attend a live chat.

I hope to see you there!
