Summary:Hikaru is given a phone call asking him to appear in a Japan/China/Korea under-18 tournament - the Hokuto Cup - but he finds out he will have to take part in a preliminary tournament to choose Japan's three contestants. Upon discussing this with Akira, he discovers that Akira has already been chosen for the tournament and will not be taking place in the preliminaries. Hikaru then decides not to visit Akira's Go Salon until he takes his place on the team with Akira. That may be tougher than originally planned, as not only does Hikaru have to battle with old friends for one of two coveted spots, but he may have a new challenger, in a promising player from the Kansai Go Institute.
This special does not cover the actual tournament. The manga, however, does and offers some closure.
