Yami Yugi grabbing Weevil Underwood in YGOTAS episode 73

“A new episode of YGOTAS comes out today?” asked LittleKuriboh. “You don’t HANA-SAY!” Ho ho, Japanese Yu-Gi-Oh! memes? In my Yu-Gi-Oh: The Abridged Series? He picked the best one to highlight, of course. Check it out in YGOTAS episode 73, “Throw Haga From The Train,” available now on YouTube and TFS.

Something is a little…different about Rex and Weevil in this episode. It seems the power of the Orichalcos does more than just take souls; it also changes people’s voices and personalities. During his January Patreon live stream, LittleKuriboh offered some insight into why he decided to approach Rex and Weevil the way he did in this episode.

“It’s basically their final big moment in the series and I wanted to give them like a really interesting send-off and do something special with them, and I think that I did,” he explained. “It’s not especially funny but I think I did a better job paying an homage to those characters than I have done for a long time. I don’t think I’ve ever really done those characters justice and I tried to do something special with them for their final duel essentially. […] I wanted them to have like a little moment in this episode where they actually seemed genuinely like actual characters.”

Marik & Bakura Go To Censored Town Visual Novel

Speaking of LittleKuriboh’s Patreon, for Valentine’s Day, LK gifted all of his patrons a kinetic visual novel of his adult Thiefshipping fanfic, Marik & Bakura Go To Censored Town. The idea for this voiced and animated project came directly from his fans and patrons, whom he hired to illustrate the novel. Check out LK’s promo of the novel and, if you like what you see, consider supporting his Patreon to get this and other neat exclusives.

Censored Town is a story that LK originally wrote in 2011 for charity.

Four More Convention Appearances

LittleKuriboh has added another four anime convention guest appearances to his 2017 line-up.

First up is MTAC — Middle Tennessee Anime Convention — held in Nashville, Tennessee, from April 14 to 16. LK has been guesting at this con each year since 2014.

Next is Anime North in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, from May 26 to 28. This event is a particularly special one for LK’s wife and fellow voice actor guest Marianne Miller because this will be her first ever trip to the Great White North.

Then, the pair head to Anime Blues Con in Memphis, Tennessee, from July 7 to 9.

Last but not least, LK will return to Leicester, England, for Alcon from August 31 to September 3.

  1. I just got a weird feeling that the next Yugioh series may not end up on Nicktoons with the ways the network keeps mismanagement on their channel….

    Did you ever got that premonition that something bad was gonna happen?

  2. I don’t know what kind of deal 4K Media has with Nicktoons but I’m surprised Nicktoons even picked up ARC-V in the first place. Going forward, I’m less interested in Nicktoons and more interested in whether a simulcast (or an almost-simulcast) is possible.

  3. If you want another company doing something different with its brand? Look at the folks on Digimon who had get their rights back from Saban when they started Dubbing the new movie. By Toei Animation of all people! They probably saw what Saban did after axeing a now rare bust of Angalwomon’s from Japan because kids will be scared for life or some crap like that? XD

    With Nick’s list of shows they aired? They be lucky if they get to VRains before Donald Trump leaves outta office in 4 years. (8, if you count a second timer?) In my opinion? Disney would more than happy if they get the rights away from Nick. Pokèmon is airing on Disney XD right now and we know how CN has moved passed its anime phase? lol

    Excuse Toonami but that’s Adult Swim.

    I also heard rumors of a new dub for Yugioh based on the OG series. Like a redub in the style of One Piece.

    Rumor has it that it got leaked online on a website called Veoh and the dub sounded pretty awesome!

    Like new voice actors that sounded like real teenagers and not just cartoon adults sounding like Teens. lol

  4. The new dub that you heard about was an elaborate April Fools’ hoax from last year.

  5. Smart devils! lol Fooled me for a minute. XD
