Change? That’s what’s happening now!
At a certain time every year, it seems like Little Kuriboh always gets frustrated enough with Yu-Gi-Oh: The Abridged Series that he decides to abandon it for something new. Today, let’s take a quick look back at these events.
In 2008, Little Kuriboh raised a colossal ruckus after releasing “The Final Abridged Video Ever” and leaving the world of YGOTAS behind to work on Zorc & Pals instead. The sitcom, however, would ultimately be canceled, with Zorc moving on to more ambitious projects.
Then, in 2009, LK again quit working on YGOTAS for the now greatly extolled Naruto Abridged Spoof, a project that would actually grow and spawn some entertaining and troll-errific stuff.
And who can forget the “Brand New Abridged Series” from last year? If LK had not again ditched YGOTAS for One Piece: The Abridged Series, Bleach Kage Abridged, and Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s: The Abridged Series, we would have never gotten that now infamous catchphrase. You know the one. The one that even crossed over into the official Yu-Gi-Oh! world. By the end of that video however, Naruto was all up in arms: “Oh, come on! That’s just ridiculous! I mean, this happened three years in a row now!”
Naruto’s right. Why does this keep happening? And it’s always around this time of year, too! I would honestly not be at all surprised if Little Kuriboh canceled his show again any day now. Look, here’s the announcement right now! Here… Here it is… Uhh… Oh?
Well now, looks like it’s the fans who have grown tired of Little Kuriboh! LK has been banned from his favorite LiveJournal community! The revered Yu-Gi-Oh! community, Play The Damn Card, Already!, has had enough of his antics and has given him the boot! Ha. I knew his egotistical attitude would be his downfall! LK won’t have any of it though. He’s written a script that parodies the community (fund it!). You know, to insult them and stuff.
Oh yeah, there are new videos, too! First up is a new YGOTAS episode: Episode 6 – Everybody Loves Mako (on YouTube, Blip.tv)! It’s got Mako Tsunami, British Yugi, return of the Hair Guy, and lots of Gorgonzola cheese and the world’s finest wiiiiine.
Speaking of wine, to see something that is definitely not a joke (it was uploaded yesterday!), check out Turkey Legs’ interview with James Bruxton, the creator of the celebrated “Pokemon abriged episode a.” I don’t know the back story behind this, but wow, that’s crazy! How did LK stay in character the whole time? For more laughs, have a look at the conversations that James Bruxton had with Chicknwings, LK, and takahata101. They’re more hilarious than Pokemon abriged itself.
And finally, there’s the new “Naruto Spoof Audio Commentary Special,” where the Dangerous Box talks about 4Kids, Vulcans, poking, and socks, among other things. At one point, I think the Dangerous Box also starts speaking in Dutch.
(By the way, the YGOTAS episode is also available for download. I’ve listed it under the “Select Special/Bonus Videos” section as “Episode 6 – Everybody Loves Mako (April Fools’ Day 2011)” so no one gets confused.)
