Fujiwara no Sai
Fujiwara-no-Sai (藤原佐為) is a character in the Japanese manga and anime entitled Hikaru no Go.
Sai is a spirit who is so strongly driven to play go that he has survived death, and is now the mentor of Hikaru Shindo. Sai wants to play the divine move (a.k.a. the Hand of God or Kami No Itte). In the manga and anime, Sai had possessed the real-life figure Hon'inbo Shusaku and through his body, became the world`s best go player of all time. Extremely effeminate by today's standards, Sai is often drawn with traditionally feminine features and mannerisms, and many fans sometimes mistakenly call him a "she" in passing only to correct themselves after realizing their mistake (see Sai's sex).
Sai's voice actor (seiyu) in the Japanese version of the anime is Susumu Chiba. In the English version his voice actor is Brad Swaile.
