Hikaru and Sai discover the Internet. Oh, what tangled webs we weave. What’s interesting about this is that Hotta obviously put a lot of thought into where this plotline was going and the ramifications of Hikaru and Sai being able to play anonymously on the web. That’s the kind of forward thinking that makes this such a high-quality series; I hope is stays that way as we go farther down this road. Wonderful series so far. ****
