Via mirageofblaze: Hotaka Ran, the illustrator of the prequels did a series of short manga strips for Naoe's birthday on her blog. Very hilarious and very cute. I linked to each post and provided a very quick and dirty translation under the cut. (I did a crap job on the SFX as usual, sorry.) :P In any case, her website is worth checking out as she does fanart for Hikago! Among other things.

panel 1:
On a certain day in April
Naoe: Takaya-san...Are you free on May 3?

Though I dearly love Mirage of Blaze (history! romance! supernatural!) I must say "THANK YOU SO MUCH" for linking to her website and letting me see all those beautiful, cute and funny Hikaru no Go art. I'm squeeing in the office right now, and I think people are looking at me like I've gone crazy, but love, love, love all the Hikaru and Akira and Sai art~♥
