... won't nitpick all the 'inaccuracies' in that episode, just happy they picked Go :mrgreen: :blackeye: ...
... the usual complete novice stone placements by actors portraying pros... :blackeye:

OTOH: byoyomi voice countdown -- they did a very nice job :clap:

I have to protest -- that character fell asleep watching a pro game! When has that ever happened in real life?

It happens around 1 PM every Sunday from April to September in my case. The early rounds of the NHK Cup on Japanese television are usually a guaranteed nap. :)

On my list of 'Japanese Animation ("Anime") I'd recommend to those who those who don't normally see Japanese Animation. The wider context strongly implies it's go they're playing and not gomoku.

There's a bit later in the badlands, near where you first meet the fixer in that area, I think. A group of characters is watching two others play Go. There is some dialogue about the complexities of the game. Pretty sure it's the exact same board position as from that mission from the police-lass mission.

Koppelman and Levien enjoy games and have form writing in the argot of gameplayers accurately and impressively. They are the guys who wrote "Rounders", comfortably the best poker movie ever made. Doesn't surprise me that they made sure their Go scenes are passable.

I've heard somewhere that Paul Giamatti is a Go player, perhaps he helped to make it believable.

Just been watching Peacock's adaptation of "Brave New World" and Go features prominently in several scenes.

The stones they chose are pretty ugly, the games don't always look plausible in the close-ups, and there is a thematic reveal that uses the idea of a "suicide move" that doesn't super work as a metaphor.

The rest of the show isn't too bad though.
