Yuma and Shark set to duel in a preview clip of Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal

Have you been keeping up with the tidbits about Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal that have been trickling out? Since announcing the series’ October 15 premiere, 4Kids has been whetting the appetites of Yu-Gi-Oh! fans with details about the newest Yu-Gi-Oh! anime on the Toonzaki Facebook page. In addition to daily reveals of Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal’s cast, 4Kids also uploaded the opening sequence and a few clips of the show to 4KidsTV.com on Friday, as well as to Hulu earlier this morning. Check them out!

The biggest surprise from these video clips thus far? It might be the fact that the realistic-looking backs of the trading cards used in the Japanese version of Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal are still intact in the 4Kids production. Why didn’t the network censors ask 4Kids to change this, even though the fronts of the cards are still edited as usual? Curious. Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal is the first series whose card backs match the designs used in the real-life trading card game. Classic Yu-Gi-Oh!, Yu-Gi-Oh! GX, and Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s all depicted the backs of the cards as having a plain brown background with a grey oval in the center.

What Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal updates will we see this week? Keep your eyes on Facebook and keep counting down until the show’s premiere!

  1. is it just me, or is the animation get really bad now that they’ve started using CGI?

  2. I don’t know if the animation in the shows has been getting worse (I’ve never really watched GX or 5D’s), but those Zexal clips don’t look too bad to me. I’m not expecting Pixar-level animation or anything like that to come out of any Yu-Gi-Oh! anime.

  3. The animation doesn’t look that bad. I’ll admit, I’m not a fan of mixing 2D animation with 3D animation, but it doesn’t look terrible. I’m just excited for ZEXAL’s release! =)
