Belatedly, it is May 5 (at least in my time zone), so let's celebrate Hikago Day!

1. Go check out [community profile] blind_go fics: round 18

2. Sign up for [community profile] sportsanime! Also, [community profile] not_primetime sign-ups are closed, but you can still submit to Prime Time Madness since Hikaru no Go has been nominated.

3. Post in the #hikagoday hashtag on Twitter or #hikagoday tag on Tumblr.

4. Reread the manga or rewatch the anime.

5. Play the "Let's Five" meme on this post:
  • Comment on this post with a list topic relating to Hikaru no Go, e.g. "Five things Hikaru hides in his underwear drawer", "Five favorite crack fics", "Five people Ochi actually likes", etc.

  • Reply to a topic with a list of five!

It's May 5th, which can mean only one thing... Cinco de Mayo? Pfft! Children's Day? Bah! Happy HikaGo Day, everyone!

Suggested by Hotta Yumi herself and first executed by Aja, HikaGo Day is an opportunity for us to roll around in our feels and remember why we love this series so much.

Five HikaGo events that occurred on or around May 5th:

  1. In 1829, Kuwabara Torajirou (Hon'inbou Shuusaku) was born (according to the old lunar calendar that was in use during his lifetime)
  2. In 1999, it was about this time that Akari caught Mitani drawing in the correct answer to the tsumego on the Haze go club's recruitment poster
  3. In 2000, Hikaru had just been promoted to 16th in insei group 1, barely in time to participate in the Wakajishi tournament
  4. In 2001, Sai disappeared and Hikaru began his quest to find him again
  5. In 2002, Hikaru and the rest of Team Japan faced Ko Yeongha and the rest of Team Korea in the Hokuto Cup

Five ways you can celebrate Hikaru no Go:

  1. Sign up to participate in the epic manga reread that will be going on all through the year!
  2. Pop in a DVD or pull out your fansubs and rewatch the anime!
  3. Leave a prompt or a fill on the current kinkmeme!
  4. Come hang out in the community chatroom!
  5. Join in with your own set of five below!

How to play:

  • Comment on this post with a list topic!
    e.g., "Five Reasons Why Ochi Is Better Than Yashiro", "Five Times Shindou Almost Got Waya Arrested", "Five Things That Irritate Ogata The Most", "Five Foods That Kurata 7-dan Absolutely Will Not Eat", "Five Most Epic Butt Shots In The Manga (With Incontrovertible Evidence!)"
  • Comment on a topic with your responses!

Don't worry if someone else answered it first; the more, the merrier!

Guess what? A lot of these lovely pieces of fanart were made in a fabulous paint program called Sai. My favourite! :D

(Apologies that this post is going up late! Originally, I had planned to do a character manifesto but due to feeling poorly, I switched at last minute to something a lot less elaborate.)

How it works

The chooser thinks of a Hikago character and posts "Who am I?" in a comment to start the game. It can be any character that has a name and appears in the series, no matter how minor. The rest of us will try to guess who the character is by asking yes or no questions in reply to the comment. The first person to guess the character correctly by asking, "Are you [character name]?" wins the game. If no one manages to guess correctly before twenty questions are asked, then the chooser wins the game.

Whoever wins the game gets to start the next game!

Hello hello! In addition to the prompt meme and the post a day happiness going on in comm, we're also going to be doing a drabble exchange for those who miss deadlines and panic a la blind go.

Hikago Day Prompt Meme


HOW IT WORKS:
Post prompts in the comments. It can be anything: scenarios, pretty pictures, kinks, songs, random words, screen shots, or whatever you think might be inspiring.

THEN post the fanworks inspired by the prompt.

There are no limits to how many prompts you can post (the more the merrier, in fact) or how you use them. Post fic, fanart, icons, podfic, fanmix, vids, gifs, crafts, games, poems, ANY MEDIUM!


RULES:
-Please play nice! No kink shaming. No pairing bashing.
-Warn for potential triggers in both prompts and fills.
-Try to keep one prompt per comment. You can comment as many times as you like, but for the sake of organization, it's easier to break things up.
-List your pairing (if any) in the subject line to make it easier to find.
-Fills can be any medium, any length, any anything, but if you post off-comm, provide a link to the work in the thread of the original prompt.


That's it! Let's 5!!

Hello, hello! Happy Hikago Day, everyone!

I am very pleased to host this year's TOP FIVE post. Thank you, Aja, for originally creating the meme and thinking of me for its sixth year.



5 things to do if you need to be reminded why you should love Hikago:
1. Read the latest fic from Blind Go's round 13: Memories
2. Re-read the glorious manga.
3. Re-watch the anime (and join The Epic Rewatch!)
4. Re-listen to your favorite podfics
5. Check out Hikago on AO3 and join our battle against the mainstream.


~


Previous incarnations of the meme:
...2007...2008...2009...2010...2011...


~


How to play:
1. Comment to this post!
2. Other commenters will ask you for one of your top-5 Hikago related things! For example: ‘Top 5 favorite characters,’ ‘Top 5 favorite game match-ups,’ ‘Top 5 times Touya and Hikaru were embarrassingly in love,’ and so on and so forth! (If you need inspiration, try these.)
3. You answer. There is much flailing. REPEAT STEPS 1-3.


READY?




SET?




LET’S FIVE!
