There is something therapeutic about introducing someone to Hikaru no Go for the first time, watching them get reeled in by this lighthearted shonen romp through the land of some board game no one actually knows how to play, and then...

...watching them cry their little hearts out when Sai disappears in Vol 15., and there's just this empty space behind the curtains where Hikaru can't find him, and Hikaru goes looking everywhere for him, and then he's kneeling in the kifu room and bawling for Sai to come back so you can't help but cry some more waaaaah!!!!!

If I had to go through that, so do you, nyeeah.

(That's my favorite volume, really. It's just so heartbreaking, and I'm a sucker for sad stories.)

You are a terrible person! Heh, having read the series for the first time in December, the pain is still fresh. A day or two after reading Vol. 15 I sent hestialuna a link to a screen cap of the scene where Hikaru plays go against someone and then turns around to say "How did I do, Sai?" and Sai isn't there and we all *die of sadness* but I just sent the link saying "Hey, look at this!" and she responded "Ahhhh! How could you do that me?" to which I could only respond "How could YOU do THIS to me?"

Oh god, and now you just did it to me again!!! WELL, HOW ABOUT that scene where Hikaru wakes up and looks down at his hand, but there isn't a fan in it. Take that!

;_; Why does this feel like a boomerang. Where's a good corner to curl up fetal in...

I can post those kind of things to the Hikago community?

Especially that Hand of Tea thing or whatever it is. Tea!

bwahaha, I was thinking "why did no one aside from me order these blends. THEY ARE SO GOOD. AND SAI IS SO BEAUTIFUL ON THE TEA PACKAGE." Alrighty, I guess I need to pimp it harder.

I think we should collect all the worst sadface screenshots together.
Sounds like the start of a very successful tumblr. I love how we all sit around exclaiming "oh no, how dare it get sad, I am broken!" While digging to find MORE sadness. Fandom, basically.
