I stand corrected-this is indisputably my favorite omake. You've captured perfectly the aftermath of grief, when the overwhelming pain has simmered down and all there's left to do is pick yourself up and adjust to the emptiness where that person used to be, to move on with your life the way that person would've wanted you to, even as you remember them and how important they were to you and how much they've changed you. It hurts because you love them, and there's a beauty in that quiet acceptance that lies in every word in this chapter.

I'd thought for sure that the ones with Akira and the one starring the Mitani family would be my favorites from this chapter, but the last one with Sai blew them out of the water. You have a gift for eliciting emotion, (and for making me cry, apparently :v). Thank you for the smiles and the laughter and the tears and everything in between.

What a beautiful ending. I teared up a couple of times this chapter, too, but it left me with a smile. I'm glad it turned out this way. Thank you for a wonderful time. I'm looking forward to the omake chapters as well.

I'm sobbing into my sleeve right now actually and I'm really glad no one else is home
That was exactly the heartbreaking, beautiful farewell befitting of such a profound bond, the one these two deserved and should have gotten. Thank you.

OGATA YOU CREEP QUIT HANGING AROUND YOUNG BOYS AND PRYING INTO THEIR PERSONAL AFFAIRS
...But you done good this time, Ogata. You done good. :v That was a lovely touching reconciliation scene and now they can be BROS AGAIN yay

I have this huge soft spot for all Touyas so this was a treat in more than one sense. Yay Kouyo knockibg sense into Akira! It must've been hard on Akira, though-Hikaru has tons of other friends to comfort and support him when he complains, but Akira's only friend is Hikaru. He must have been lonely. :(

Ouch. I understand Akira's frustration-he's found this amazing rival, and together they could sweep the Go world, and he could have his dear friend with him playing the game they love together and WHAT COULD BE BETTER except he's off wasting his talent playing soccer instead what a dumb jock :v-but the way he confronted Hikaru about it was Not Cool. Go, soccer player, go, indeed. :( LIVE YOUR LIFE HIKARU DO WHAT'S IMPORTANT TO YOU

AKIRA IS STILL TRYNA PLAY THIS FRIENDSHIP COOL
ugh these idiots are so cute I'M UNINVITING YOU TO THE MATCH THAT ALREADY HAPPENED AND WHICH YOU WERE AT lol

Yes weird, but good weird! :) I love Akira's personal growth in believing in his right to be there as Hikaru's close friend and standing up for himself, and Waya actually apologizing for being rude to him. Mitani has redeemed himself totally, too. What a tsundere.

I'm glad that Hikaru has found a way to balance all his commitments without giving up on Go. His interactions with his soccer friends are so sweet, too :)

That last line! I love the everyday hilarity of these quiet moments, and how baffled Akira is by Hikaru. *g*

AKIRA AND HIKARU IN THE SAME CLASS
/GLEEFUL DOLPHIN NOISES
| ilko chapter 45 . 11/17
This chapter legitimately made me tear up. FRIENDSHIP. FEELINGS. TALKING THINGS OUT HONESTLY LIKE GROWNUPS AND REAFFIRMING THEIR IMPORTANCE TO EACH OTHER. Hikaru is a great kid and I'm just as proud as Sai is.

Ogata is a jerk :v I still feel sorry for Kaito, but at least Hikaru had a good reason for ditching him. Hikaru should still do something nice for him to make up for it, though. Poor disappointed Akira, though, I just want to give him a hug :(
