TV-Nihon is on a roll, releasing Toei Animation’s 30-minute Yu-Gi-Oh! movie — simply entitled “Yu-Gi-Oh!” — earlier today. Needless to say, I’ve created a new page just for the movie here, where you can download it via MegaUpload. All credit for the upload goes to Janime’s ShadowNeko003. As with TV-Nihon’s releases of Series 1, if you prefer downloading via BitTorrent, you can grab it from TV-Nihon’s official tracker.
Hey! What happened to my green hair?! Oh, you gave it to that kid…
This movie premiered in 1999, after the first series ended, but before the second series (Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters) debuted. It is often seen as a bridge that links the first series, which centers on the everyday misadventures of Yuugi and his friends, to the second series, which of course focuses on Yuugi and the titular card game. The movie places an emphasis on the card game, and introduces the mechanisms of game-play more greatly than in the first series. Additionally, the backs of the cards change from the “MW” design seen in the first series to the familiar oval design seen in the real card game and in all later series. And, of course, Kaiba loses his lime-colored hair for a more attractive shade of brown. In Japan, this movie was screened simultaneously with the 20-minute “Digimon Adventure” movie.
LittleKuriboh parodies this movie in Yu-Gi-Oh: The Other Abridged Movie.
But I don’t want green hair…
