Never before have my eyes beheld such a noble looking raccoon.

Thanks so much! :D

It's actually meant to be a tanuki, a Japanese canine which looks really, really similar to a raccoon. In fact, in the English translation of the tanuki movie, Pom Poko, they just called them raccoons.

But I've never seen a live tanuki, so the art probably has more actual raccoon influence, anyway.

This is cute! I love go.. T_T I wish I had someone to play with. I have this nice shin-kaya training board and nobody to play with. Alas!

Awww....where are you? Have you looked in your area for a club at promotego.org ? Playing on the internet is cool, but Go makes you really want to own beatiful equipment, and then you need to find a way to use it! What kind of stones do you have?

I had to start a club at my library to have people to play with in real life. We got free equipment from the American Go Foundation. (But I had to buy my own, nicer stuff! ^^ )

I'm not sure on the stones, they came with the board and its been years since I purchased it. They make a nice firm click tho when you place them.

I don't drive and I live far away from where I can get go clubs going T_T I guess I could ride the bus to the library but I have no idea how to set up a go club and I have a slight social fear that discourages me...especially if no one shows up! I might bring it with me to the anime convention this august and see if anyone wants to play xD
