Hey all! I'd wanted to get things started with the reread on the 5th but unfortunately was kind of overtaken by life events. So, to get things moving now (finally) for those who'd like to participate in the reread:

1. How many chapters would be feasible to cover in a week? Bearing in mind that the whole series is 191 chapters in 23 volumes (usually 9 chapters/volume) I was thinking about covering 2 volumes a week, but I'd like your thoughts.

2. When would be the best time for me to put up the discussion/recap posts? I can accommodate pretty much any time, but I'm thinking the weekend is going to be better for most people? Let me know.

Hey guys! I'm starting up our community rewatch! This week I'll be posting screencaps and brief summaries; other weeks when I'm busier, it might just be a "discuss!" type post.

Episodes 1-5 ~ A ghost, a rival, and some new friends )

That's all for this week! Next week, will Tsutsui beat his opponent? Will he throw away his book? Will Haze go on to win the tournament? Will Hikaru's subterfuge be discovered?

All right; discuss! Go go i-go!

Hey everyone!

I signed up during the Open Beta Week celebration to lead a rewatch of the series and ever since I've been trying to figure out how best to go about it (in between, you know, not failing my finals. I hope.)

So I thought what I'd do is, I'd ask for opinions! Would you all prefer short bursts of episodes weekly? One episode each week spread out over a really long time? Do you have any preference for when the discussion posts should go up (e.g. weekday or weekend)?

The best schedule to my mind would be something like groups of 5 episodes per week, because 1. I can never watch just one episode of anything, let alone Hikaru no Go! and 2. this way, the rewatch will last through summer vacation and I won't be worrying about it when I get back to school. But I'm fine with it if people prefer less or more episodes in each discussion post.

I'm looking forward to rewatching the series with you all! Onegai shimasu!

Hello everyone! I know a lot of us are gearing up for May 5th (which is tomorrow in my time zone!) and I figured this might be a good time to post my part for the open beta celebration. Basically what you'll find under the cut is my personal voyage into the world of Hikaru no Go. This is not an introduction to the series itself - I believe someone else will be posting that later - so this may not be the best thing for newbies to the story to read. It has multiple spoilers, and I tend to discuss themes that I assume people are familiar with. Obviously, I don't want to stop anyone from reading it if they're interested, but be warned! If you've not seen the show or read the manga and want to remain spoiler-free, these are not the droids you're looking for!

For everyone else, please read and enjoy, and despite it being a personal account, I hope you all find something in here that resonates with your own experiences.

Onegai Shimasu! )

[profile] readerofasaph kindly volunteered to write up an introduction, but we will still appreciate more volunteers to write their own take on the series. It can be a formal essay summarizing the plot and discussing the major themes or a personal account of how you came to love Hikaru no Go.

Please leave a comment if you're interested in volunteering! We are setting a tentative time frame for the introductions to be posted to the comm during May 1-8 but if this time frame won't work for you, just add a note letting us know.

We're looking for at least one or two volunteers to lead a community-wide rewatch/reread of the series. You will need to decide on a schedule (the anime is 75 episodes and the manga is 23 volumes) and make a weekly discussion post to the community. (We leave it up to you whether you want to provide elaborate recaps complete with picspam or if you just put up, "Discuss!") Please leave a comment to this post if you're interested!

We'll be closing the Open Beta celebration activities poll tomorrow, so you have about 24 hours left to vote!

Currently, friending meme, introductions to canon/fandom, commentfics, rec lists, trivia contest and rewatch/reread are leading the polls.

The original Hikaru no Go anime is currently back on the air in Japan on TXN (the TV Tokyo Network) on Monday nights, beginning this week.

Here’s hoping that with the republication of the manga and rebroadcasting of the anime, enough interest is generated to make it worthwhile for someone to finish the Hokuto Cup story arc that just started before the anime was canceled.

And may I add here another gentle reminder to vote in the Hikago Open Beta Celebration interest poll. It's fast! It's easy! And anyone can do it (with an OpenID)! Thanks!

Just a quick note to let everyone know that I've set up RSS feeds to both the Blind Go and Kifu Archive LJ communities in case anyone would like to follow the comms here by adding the RSS feeds to their DW account (easy to do by searching for blind_go_feed and/or kifu_archive_feed under "Site and Account"). The deadline for the latest Blind Go challenge is coming up and May 5th is not far behind!

And speaking of exciting events... has everyone taken advantage of the comm's first member poll and voted for the activities the mods should plan for hikarunogo's Open Beta Celebration? Voting is free of commitment or obligation (although volunteers are and will be very appreciated) so feel free to vote for any or all of the activities! Hoping that everyone will be able to drop by the comm sometime during the celebration beginning April 30 - bring a friend!

[profile] readerofasaph and [personal profile] ladyseishou suggested that we hold an open beta celebration, starting on April 30, to help launch this community off the ground. Here's a list of various ideas for community activities that were proposed by people in comments to my previous post:

Open Beta Celebration )


Now for the polls! We'll choose the top five activities from the poll results and put up sign-up posts for volunteers to help run those activities. (Answering the second question in the poll doesn't commit you to being a volunteer, but it does help us get a sense for how much work is involved.)
