As of today, STARZ is no longer streaming the Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters anime on its platform. The premium cable network had added season 1 of the Yu-Gi-Oh! English dub to its catalog in April 2017. It did not add the remaining four seasons.

Currently, STARZ still has the Yu-Gi-Oh! Bonds Beyond Time and Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions movies.

Crimson Dragon mark and eye from the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's Duel World opening animation in Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links

Duelists young and old, professional and amateur alike, it’s the moment you’ve been waiting for! The world of Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s is here! Yusei Fudo and his friends today join the smash hit Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links game. With them come the new Synchro monsters and Synchro summoning mechanic.

Synchro what?! Don’t worry, they’re not complicated. But if you don’t know how to Synchro summon, you’ll be able to play a short tutorial after picking up your first Synchro cards that teaches you how to use them.

To gain access to the 5D’s Duel World, you first need to unlock Yusei by reaching Stage 10 in the DM Duel World. Then, complete the Character Unlock Mission of summoning Wind-attribute monsters ten times. As you reach higher stages, you’ll be able to unlock more characters, like Akiza Izinski, Leo, and more.

In Japan, the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s anime will begin streaming on several Japanese video networks beginning on October 1 to celebrate this update. Fans in the West are more fortunate, as we’ve had the entire Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s anime, both dubbed and subbed, streaming for free for the last couple of years.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links’ addition of the 5D’s world follows its release of the GX world almost exactly one year ago.

Pegasus looking at his opponent after drawing a card in episode 35

The Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series tournament has been running for over 8 years and is about to host its 200th event next month. To celebrate this milestone, Konami will hold three YCS events simultaneously in different parts of the world for the first time ever. On September 22 and 23, duelists can head to Columbus, Ohio; Mexico City, Mexico; and Utrecht, Netherlands, to take part in the 200th YCS.

The 200th YCS Columbus event will host special guest Darren Dunstan, best known as the voice of Maximillion Pegasus in Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters and the voice director of all Yu-Gi-Oh! anime since episode 60 of Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s. Naturally, this also means the return of the Ultimate Pegasus Challenge, a tournament where Pegasus uses his position as the creator of Duel Monsters to invoke wacky changes to the rules of the game while duelists are playing. This is only the fourth time that this special event will take place. Darren will be signing autographs all weekend as well.

The 200th YCS will also have several exclusive giveaways for participants, including a Gold Sarcophagus playmat; a Field Center Marker featuring the new prize card of this dueling season, Chaos Emperor, the Dragon of Armageddon; and a brand-new Divine attribute die.

To see Darren’s autograph schedule, photos of all of the exclusives, and more information about the event, check out the 200th YCS Columbus FAQ on the official Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG website. The Columbus event will be live streamed on the OfficialYuGiOhTCG channel on YouTube.

The Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series is the successor to the Shonen Jump Championship, which hosted 74 events across the U.S. before ending in April 2010. The rebranded YCS program took dueling global, holding major tournaments in Europe, Latin America, and Australia, and introduced more prizes to duelists.

Canada Gets Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS English Dub Debut

Ai is surprised when Playmaker activates a monster effect in Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS episode 36

4K Media’s English dub of Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS is about to get its television debut. And just as with Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V, Canada will be the first English-speaking market to receive the show. The Ontario-based TV Passport television listings website shows that Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS will premiere on the Teletoon network on September 1 at 1:00 pm ET. It also lists episode 2 premiering on September 2 in the same time slot.

Canada is one of only a handful of countries that does not receive Crunchyroll’s Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS simulcast. But maybe Canadian fans of Yu-Gi-Oh! can take some solace knowing that they are once again the first (and as of yet, the only) country to get the newest anime series dubbed in English.

As of this writing, 4K Media itself has not formally announced this English television premiere of Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS, nor has it announced a release date or network for the United States.

Pyramid of Light artifact on display at a museum in Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie

Manga Entertainment UK announced today that it will release Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie on DVD and, for the first time ever, on Blu-ray this October. The London-based distributor’s upcoming release slate shows two Yu-Gi-Oh! video listings, both with a street date of October 8:

  • Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie
  • Yu-Gi-Oh! Movie Triple Pack, which includes Pyramid of Light, Bonds Beyond Time, and The Dark Side of Dimensions

Manga UK stated on Twitter that only the English-dubbed version by 4Kids Entertainment is included. Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie was first released on DVD in the United Kingdom in 2004 by Warner Home Video. That version also included only the English dub and is no longer in print.

A remastered English version of Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie and the first English episode of Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS were screened in cinemas in the United Kingdom on June 13.

There has yet to be a formal announcement from any American distributor regarding similar products for this side of the globe.

This year’s Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG North America World Championship Qualifier is welcoming two returning voice actor guests for a special live duel! Greg Abbey, best known for playing Tristan Taylor in Yu-Gi-Oh! and Yusei Fudo in Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s, will meet Oliver Wyman, best known as Aster Phoenix in Yu-Gi-Oh! GX and ARC-V.

Greg will reprise his role as Jean-Claude Magnum, Hollywood’s ninth biggest box office draw and Mai Valentine’s one-time suitor/kidnapper, who wields a flashy Ninja deck. And Oliver will play Zigfried von Schroeder, head of the Schroeder Corporation gaming company, who uses a deadly Valkyrie deck. Their duel will showcase cards from Shadows in Valhalla, a new Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG set coming in August that includes never-before-seen cards from the anime, like Zigfried’s Ride of the Valkyries.

The 2018 Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG NAWCQ will take place from June 29 to July 1 in Fort Worth, Texas. Check the event’s FAQ page for the full schedule and a list of activities to take part in at the tournament. The event will also be live streamed on the OfficialYuGiOhTCG YouTube channel.
