When I first came across this anime series, I couldn't believe how it could be interesting for 75 episodes. But by watching it, I was surprised. Although I haven't finished this series yet, I think it's really good. The graphics, music and story are top-notch and you won't be disappointed by picking up this anime. You'll even learn to play Go as well.
