Wow that was good, it had great suprises too! The return of Iijima was big, you seriously had me thinking he was going to confess to Nase, then you smacked me to in the face with the girlfriend. It was a great "oh shit!" moment.

Hey, just wanted to let you know that this is one of my favorite fanfics and I'm really glad you're continuing it!

What a pleasant surprise to see the Neverending Road updating again!
I discovered this fic maybe five years ago and figured it was well and truly dead, but have returned to it as an old friend a number of times since.
Welcome back, Leitbur, I look forward to seeing where the road goes next, especially for Waya and Nase.
Merry Christmas to you and yours.

First of all, I just want to say how happy I am that you are continuing to write this. I only found this story 3 weeks ago, and I was just reaching the end when I realised that there was no way this was a finished fanfic and that it must have been abandoned. Suffice to say I was extremely pleased to see that the latest update was 2018.
I really enjoyed Qian's game, it was a kind of comeback that we haven't seen so much in this story. I hope that we get to see more of her after the Hokuto Cup is finished (it'd be great to see her vs Nase).
I gotta admit, I'd quite like to see Suyon beat Akira. We haven't really seen his confidence properly shaken since Hikaru beat him waaaay back in the original manga and it seems like Suyon is set up to possibly be able to do it.
Could you provide a summary as to how you've changed Nase in the previous chapters?

I just LOVE this new part ! As great as ever !
| haydon.berrow chapter 39 . 12/19/2018
Hello, I realise that this is all water under the bridge but I have just discovered this fanfic and I'm enjoying it a lot but only half-way through so lots more enjoyment to come. I'm also very interested in the details you uncover such as the fees for playing different types of game. There was something in particular that I meant to ask where you had discovered it but now I can't remember, sigh.
In episode 39, when Hikaru and Zama do nigiri, Zama has one stone and Hikaru has lots. Surely this is wrong? Zama is the elder and high ranking so Zama should take a handful and Hikaru should take one or two as a challenge.

i should have give some review since chapter 81 released (i think?), but then you mention about "rewriting" the whole story... which is can't be passed. so i decide to read it again from the beginning to see the difference.
i think i was reaching chapter 40ish or something when i realize there are some loopholes, like unfinished scenes. then, i remember from what i read in some of your A/N that there are scenes that you are not finish writing it yet. so i wait some more.
a week after that (somehow?), i start reading this story from beginning AGAIN until the latest chapter. so here i am. that's why i took some time before i write a review for you... even though every time i finish reading your chapter, my fingers just itched to comment something. the holding up is torture. haha
first of, that was a GREAT job for you to rewrite all. The story now has many additional information that fill in the loopholes from the previous version of your story (before you rewrite it). i still have your previous version so maybe someday, i can compare it side by side. hehe
in result? the story flow becomes smoother, a little bit more sense to read (not that the previous one is bad. but when i compare this one to what i remembered, sometimes the flow feels a bit abrupt and the explanation feels.. off. just sometimes).
so well done for that.
the biggest difference is nase. she feels more mature (quite matched with her age), but still in teenager way.
i'm not exactly hate nase per se. but, if i compare it to the previous version, whenever i read nase part, it feels like reading second akari, which doesn't make any sense because the actual akari is 2 years younger than nase.
this one? i feel the difference.
i feel this is the "version" that you want to portrayed about nase. if it is, i agree.
because, if you want to make potential romantic candidate for hikaru, variation is good.
since before, i never took the chance to read your A/N. so only now, i realize that you actually answer some of reviewer's question. hahaha. my bad.
have you ever answer one of mine?
now, about the next chapter...
i have conflicted feelings.
first, i somehow want akira to lose to hong su yong. that's because... i have a feeling that in this arc, you want to give some mental headache to akira.
i just want to torture him a bit.
second, i also want akira to win to hong su yong. in this case, even though still not officially, akira is equivalent to hikaru in skill. so, for hong su yong, it feels like "if i want to win my fight with hikaru, i have to win with his counterpart!", or something along the line.
so what if he lose? hmmmmmmmmm...
in a sense, akira must realize that hong su yong sees hikaru as his rival. so he will answer hong su yong's challenge with "i'm his one true rival!" ( i hope this doesn't feel like yaoi... much).
no no no. this is not yaoi. it feels more like... validation.
Ch'eonweon slayer huh?
i wonder... which one is better? wizard of go or Ch'eonweon slayer?
(hiding from the thrown teapot)
i am so excited, to read another match... with situation like ogata vs hikaru in kisei league. so...
similar match with something to bet, even though not spoken quite clearly.
will this time, that "sai version" will show up again? kyaaaaaaaaaaaaaa (i just want to try the girlish scream like in anime XD)
sorry for giving more burdens to your shoulder, author.
ooooooooooohhhh possible romantic candidate for waya?
I AM IN!
that's more to my disagreement for the notion of waya with morishita's daughter.
even though i have a feeling that she might have a feeling for waya...
i should have write a note about whatever i want to say in my review. but, i forgot.
maybe next time.
good luck and i will be waiting~~
until next time,

Oh my goodness, I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw the notification that this story has been updated.
7 years later, I picked up the story exactly where you left on and found myself jumping right back into it. It's amazing how much information my brain can retain, probably kept in a dusty corner, but 4 chapters in, I can feel the rush and excitement over the series return all at once.
Love the intensity of the matches, you set up the tension so well, I can literally hear the stones on the board and imagine the tension in the air, and the look on their faces.
Thank you for coming back, it is so good to be reading about Hikaru and Akira again. Many might have forgotten them, but I apparently haven't and thank you so much for not having forgotten them too. Please keep writing! I can't wait!

Hi ,I really love your 's so for the next chapter.
| The Quiller chapter 83 . 12/17/2018
Oh wow oh wow oh wow. I remember loving this story so much when I first stumbled across it, because it was the definitive Hikaru no Go fanfiction for me. Nothing else on this site captures the characters, the tone, and the love for the game quite the same way. I must have reread this story in its entirety at least three or four times.
I haven’t checked in a while, but stumbling across this story, updating again, nearly made me throw my phone in glee. I’m honestly stunned at how smoothly you’ve picked up where the story originally left off. Your unique writing style doesn’t seem rusty at all. I’ve devoured the first new chapters, and now I’m going to go back and reread this entire thing - seriously, I’m thrilled, you just made my week.
Thank you so much for picking this story back up, it makes me happy in more ways than just a reader.

Just marathoned this entire story over the week.
Good work, and quite likely the only work of this level in this fandom.
| cabegaye chapter 83 . 12/13/2018
Welcome back, Leitbur! It’s good to know that you have not abandon the story. I hope to see more chapters in the future.
