Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V Manga Volume 1 Available NowApril 4, 2017 at 8:00 pm | Posted in ARC-V, Yu-Gi-Oh! | 3 Comments
Out today from VIZ Media is Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V, Volume 1, a new Yu-Gi-Oh! manga from writer Shin Yoshida and illustrator Naohito Miyoshi. This graphic novel collects chapters 1 through 6 and is available in print format for $9.99 and digital format $6.99. The physical book includes an Ultra Rare Odd-Eyes Phantom Dragon card, Yuya’s signature monster.
Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V is a monthly title serialized in VIZ’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. It has an original story that’s completely different from the anime. In the world of the manga, Yuya Sakaki is a hacker on the run from the LEO Corporation’s Reiji Akaba. As a master of a new form of summoning — the Pendulum Summons — Yuya is on the hunt for Genesis Omega Dragon, a card that’s said to determine the fate of the world. This story and its characters are hot.
If you’ve been reading Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V in WSJ, is it still worth it to pick up the graphic novel? Of course! In addition to touched-up artwork and lettering, English sound effects, and translation fixes, the graphic novel includes early design sketches of Yuya Sakaki, Yuto, Reiji Akaba, and Yuzu Hiragi by illustrator Naohito Miyoshi. Some of their looks are pretty different from the final product.
