Thanks to the comic, Go has come into fashion again with the Japanese youth. Published by the [ext] Jump Comics division of [ext] Shueisha in Japan, the hilarious storyline is by Yumi Hotta*; the gripping art is by Takeshi Obata; and photogenic pro 5-dan Yukari Umezawa (Umezawa Yukari) gets credited for go technical advice. The series was serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump, a popular Japanese manga magazine. The anime was produced by [ext] Studio Pierrot and it was aired on [ext] TV Tokyo from 2001 to 2003. New Years' specials were aired in January 2003 and January 2004.


The Hikaru no Go manga is published by VIZ Media ([ext] http://www.viz.com) in the United States and Canada, and the Hikaru no Go anime has been licensed by VIZ Media in the United States and Canada. The manga is serialized in the United States version of Shonen Jump ([ext] http://www.shonenjump.com), while the first episodes of the anime are available for viewing on a website run by the Cartoon Network, [ext] Toonami Jetstream.
