"Miguchi-san," she says, "I cannot pretend to understand the technicalities of what my son has achieved, or brought upon the world. So you must excuse my ideas if they seem foolish to you. You are conversant with all the particulars; I can only speak of what I know. Akira was never 'Sai', and he did not create 'Sai'. 'Sai' existed, and Akira found him – it. He accomplished what his father could not.
"Perhaps he believed that if he succeeded, he would be able to meet Shindou-san again."
Toua Akira spends the duration of his Kisei matches fighting with Shindou, which is not surprising, having a revelation about Shindou, which is pretty surprising, and finding a new and interesting way to use his tie.
The first time Hikaru takes Touya to the Go salon (Dougenzaka, not the one full of Touya's groupies) is months after the Hokuto Cup and the Young Lions Tournament.
A series of firsts.
Hand of God, game over, go home.
