9-Dan Moriuchi's comment
I hereby announce my decision to move out to the Free-class.
I reached this conclusion after dropping out of the A-class of 2016 Ranking League (jun-i-sen).
I have gained so much memorable experiences such as breaking the record of win streak in Ranking League as well as many games in the Meijin title match. I am full of gratitude.
Hereafter I will make use of this experience to support further growth of Ranking League tournaments and Meijin title matches from a different standpoint from the player
