Hikaru no Go (TV)
Go back to Hikaru no Go main page
The last few minutes of montage on the final episode cover about 5 volumes of manga.
Hikaru wears a lot of clothing with the number 5 on it. This is actually a play in words, as 5 in Japanese is pronounced "go", which is obviously a homonym to the game featured in this anime.
In the ep. 21, at around 10'40", in the original Japanese version, Kumiko Tsuda says, "Shindô-kun & Mitani-kun are going to leave the club". However, in the French dubbing, she says, "Hikaru & Mitani are going to leave the club to get married" !!!
In the ep. 55, at around 08'11", when Waya comes back to his room and puts his backpack on the floor, it can be noticed that there are also a copy of the famous "Weekly Shônen Jump" (the logo can easily be recognized), magazine that published the "Hikaru No Go" manga, and a copy of a book named "Go, go, igo!" (the name of the little educational show broadcast between the ending and the teaser of each episode.
In episode 53, Hikaru visits Toya Meijin in Aishindou hospital. This could be a pun for "meeting Shindou."
