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