VIZ's Weekly Shonen Jump to run Yu-Gi-Oh! Transcend Game manga

Kazuki Takahashi’s Yu-Gi-Oh! Transcend Game manga is getting an official English translation! VIZ Media’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine announced in this today’s issue that it will publish the two-part story, which bridges the gap between the end of the original Yu-Gi-Oh! manga and the upcoming Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions movie. Part 1 will run in the December 19 issue next week and part 2 will run in the January 2 issue. The story was originally published in Japanese earlier this year in April.

You won’t want to miss this. If you are not a WSJ subscriber (you’re passing over the best deal for comics anywhere — $25.99 for one year, or $0.54 per issue!), you can still buy individual issues for $0.99 each. VIZ’s WSJ is available on VIZ.com, Android, iOS, Amazon, comiXology, and Google Play Books.

This post will be updated with links to the issues as they become available.

Update (December 19, 2016): Yu-Gi-Oh! Transcend Game, Part 1, is here! If you are considering buying this week’s issue on it’s own just for Yu-Gi-Oh!, please note that a one-year WSJ subscription is currently on sale for $19.99 (or $0.42 per issue). This is the exact same subscription that you would get if you paid the regular $25.99 price — 48 issues of WSJ simulpubs per year, plus four Yu-Gi-Oh! cards in the mail. VIZ has never lowered the subscription price below $19.99, so if you are waiting for an even cheaper deal, there won’t be one. Save some money and buy a subscription today!

Yu-Gi-Oh! Transcend Game, Part 1, is available for $0.99 on VIZ, Amazon, comiXology, and Google Play Books.

Update (January 2, 2017): Yu-Gi-Oh! Transcend Game, Part 2, is out in today’s issue. As a reminder, the $19.99 WSJ subscription sale is still on. There’s no time like the present to start reading Jump manga!

Yu-Gi-Oh! Transcend Game, Part 2, is available for $0.99 on VIZ, Amazon, comiXology, and Google Play Books.

  1. Finally! I was slightly worried that Viz Media wouldn’t translate Transcend Game into English. I’m so glad there’s an official release coming out and I’m going to buy those 2 issues for sure. One thing I would wish for is to have the one-shot in print. That would be nice to be honest, but at least it’s coming out so no complaints from me.

  2. Anime only watchers will think that image is referring to the anime. lol Especially when 4K Media changed the movies canon from the manga to anime.

  3. @DISNEYGIRL I really hope this gets printed and included with a DSoD movie ticket purchase, like how Yu-Gi-Oh 5D’s was with BBT.
    @Yugiohfan Haha, I don’t know about that but I hope fans read it and enjoy the movie anyway. I love all the Yu-Gi-Oh! manga, maybe even more than the anime, and I hope this gets people who have never looked at the manga before to give them a shot.
