Yu-Gi-Oh! 20th Anniversary Project
After 15 years, the Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters anime is restored in an HD remaster!
Broadcast begins Saturday, February 7 at 7:30 am on the TV Tokyo Network
My how time flies. After four years and three months on the BS Japan network, the Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters anime reruns end today, January 30, with episode 224. The series had been airing on the TV Tokyo-owned satellite network since October 2010. Prior to that, it enjoyed reruns on Animax and TV Tokyo. Beginning February 6, Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL take will take Duel Monsters’ 5:00 pm JST slot on BS Japan’s Yu-Gi-Oh! Hour.
But don’t expect Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters to fade away anytime soon. As a mainstay on Japanese television since its debut in April 2000, the series will return without skipping a beat next week in its newest incarnation, Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters: 20th Remaster! As first officially announced in Shueisha’s third 2015 issue of Weekly Shonen Jump, TV Tokyo and its sister stations will begin airing the remastered series on February 7 at 7:30 am JST. Several duels, including Yuugi vs. Kaiba and Jounouchi vs. Marik, will return in “remastered” forms in this version of the show. TV Tokyo opened an official website for the show last week, but it is still largely empty.
