Both games of Akira towards the end of this chapter were played in reality by the then very young Takemiya Masaki. There is a little joke here. Both times the opponent is the veteran Fukuhara Yoshitora. The first game is from the 5th Pro Best Ten, 2nd Preliminary, with Takemiya black. The second is from the 4th Pro Best Ten, 2nd Preliminary , with Takemiya white. [2004-03-15]
