Earlier today, the fansubbing group TV-Nihon released episode 27 of the first series of Yu-Gi-Oh!, making them the first group in recent times to sub this series in its entirety!

To celebrate this great accomplishment, not to mention the awesome release of a Yu-Gi-Oh! show that many people still have not seen, I’ve created a new page for this series here that contains links to episodes 1 through 27. All credit and thanks go to Janime’s DARKMASTER, MidnightBlues, and especially to Gato and latiasfan2004, for uploading these episodes onto MegaUpload. For those of you who prefer torrents, you can also download this series from TV-Nihon’s official tracker. I’ve also added a link to TV-Nihon’s website in my blogroll.

What? Someone actually cares about my old show?!

In case you don’t know, the first Yu-Gi-Oh! series, simply called “Yu-Gi-Oh!”, aired in Japan between April and October of 1998 — two years before the series “Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters” premiered. However, it was the Duel Monsters series that went on to become an international phenomenon, and when early fans stumbled upon the first series, many christened it “Season 0,” a lost season of Duel Monsters. This, however, is incorrect, for the two are completely separate series animated and produced by different companies. It has also been referred to as “Yu-Gi-Oh! The Shadow Games,” “Yu-Gi-Oh! Series 0,” and “Yu-Gi-Oh! Toei” (after the studio who animated it — Toei Animation).

Now that I’ve made a post about this series, I’ll no doubt get more and more questions about where the raws can be found. The short answer is that while raws for about half of the episodes can be found on Janime, the quality isn’t too good, and they might be difficult to work with for anyone who’s interested in fansubbing this series themselves. I haven’t decided whether I want to dedicate a page here to those raws, but this is something that I’ll address in a future post. For now, go and download TV-Nihon’s release of Yu-Gi-Oh! and enjoy the show!

Update (October 28, 2008): I ended up deciding against posting the aforementioned raws. Their quality is very poor and it’s not a complete set of raws anyway.
