Yuugi smiling while at school in episode 2

Little Kuriboh is a really humble guy. It is, I think, one of his best and most respectable qualities. Modesty is something that’s seen all too infrequently from successful individuals in today’s busy world, even less so from those who’ve built their success on the anonymous and impersonal Internet realm. LK isn’t even someone who was seeking fame and recognition when he created Yu-Gi-Oh: The Abridged Series. It happened anyway though. And yet, despite single-handedly producing a piece of work that’s become a worldwide success — a phenomenon, even — LK has always put his friends and fans first and has never arrogantly flaunted his achievements. That’s just the kind of stand-up guy he is. It’s no surprise, then, that LK has made a big thank-you video that gives big, big props to all of his supporters, including the guys from the official YGO: TAS fansite, TGWTG, Rooster Teeth (whoa, I didn’t know LK worked with them!), TeamFourStar, the other competitors and winners in Mashable’s Open Web Awards, and many more folks.

Since the start of the Open Web Award finals, the number of subscribers to LK’s channel has climbed from around 79,000 to over 87,000. The 107 videos on CardGamesFTW today have over 17.8 million total views. The YGO: TAS Twitter and Facebook pages have thousands of followers. Now that CardGamesFTW has been voted Funniest YouTube Channel, these numbers will only increase. What does the future hold for LK, his channel, and his beloved series?

In other news, YGO: TAS is back on iTunes! Hooray! And here I was thinking that everyone had given up on it already! I’ll update my YGO: TAS indexes sometime in the near future with links to the many new episodes made available for download.

  1. We’re good friends with the guys at Rooster Teeth. I don’t personally work with them.

  2. Congratulations. Kinda like Susan Boyle with Britain’s got talent in a way. Question though. Is there a Yugioh GX version of this site that has uncensored subbed episodes and what not or is there a fansub group that did all the episodes of GX ?

  3. @LittleKuriboh
    That’s still pretty cool! I remember Red vs. Blue when it was just starting to develop into a huge hit. They’re such talented guys, just like you! It must be awesome to know them.

    Yeah, I can see the Susan Boyle comparison. CardGamesFTW was up against a lot of big-name channels with massive numbers of subscribers. The underdog comparison can definitely be made. And no, sorry, I’m not interested in GX. What a random question. o.O

  4. Susan Boyle went physco from being too popular.

  5. She was probably just stressed out from all that exposure. I don’t think LK’s one to let popularity get to his head. 8)
