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.

Eve asking Yuto if he wants to be with Yuya in Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V manga chapter 34

Yuto stares up at Eve’s three legendary monsters. With their abilities to recover Eve’s life points, clear her opponent’s field, and inflict effect damage to her opponent, his chances of winning seem bleak. Nevertheless, he pushes on with determination in his fierce eyes. Yuto summons Dark Anthelion Dragon, powering it up with its attack-boosting effect and further supporting it with an Equip Spell.

Meanwhile, Yuya, having withdrawn into the recesses of his mind to recover, finds himself in front of a network of roots and glowing orbs in the ground. He sees that these roots have twined and twisted together, forming a mountainous tree off in the distance in front of him. There is a pulsating sensation all around him — it’s the Adam Factor. Yuya wonders why he and Reiji Akaba have the trigger inside them that will awaken Adam. Yuya sadly recalls the destructive final moments of his future following the World Illusion and his escape from that era. He then looks down at one of the glowing orbs.

Yuri and Yugo get a jolt; they sense that Yuya is at the Adam Factor. The pair speed off after Yuya on Yugo’s Duel Runner, but they’re too late. The painful memories that they’ve worked so hard to destroy have been reconstructed by the Adam Factor. And Yuya has at last stumbled upon them.

Back at the duel, Yuto has managed to wound Eve with Dark Anthelion. But Eve uses her legendary monsters’ effects to regain her life points and decrease Yuto’s, putting him in an even worse spot than before. Eve tells Yuto that if he wants to protect Yuya, he needs to hand over the Adam Factor.

Yuya reemerges, taking control of his body again. He thanks Yuto for giving him time to steel himself. All this time, he had believed that the effects of the World Illusion had tampered with his mind and fragmented his personality. But the glowing orb has shown the truth to Yuya.

He, Yuri, Yugo, and Yuto were brothers.

Thoughts

I think I’m going to cry…

Young Yuri, Yuya, Yugo, and Yuto with Yusho Sakaki in Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V manga chapter 34

They are so small, so cute, so innocent.

So did Yuya’s brothers die during the World Illusion? Eve calls Yuto “Yuya Sakaki’s tragic guardian,” so something terrible must have happened. But their personalities became bonded with Yuya’s, at least keeping that part of them alive.

Whatever tragedy befell them, they’ve worked so hard to prevent Yuya from remembering it. But now, it’s all starting to fall apart. It’s heartbreaking to see the brothers fail like this, but the story needs for Yuya to discover the truth in order to move forward. This also adds another layer of mystery to Eve since she is apparently aware of all that has happened and is even willing to spill the truth during the duel. Yuya needs to beat her.

Hello, Yuzu fan service. With all of the Sora fan service in previous chapters, I guess balance is needed. Kurosaki and Sawatari, who haven’t seen much of the spotlight recently, seem like the perfect “lucky pervert” types, hahaha.

Kuribandit in YGOTAS episode 80
“Do da arr arr arr arr arr”

Please don’t talk about how Kaiba touches Joey in the newest episode of Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged, “Roof Raph,” released today on YouTube. Episode 80 features the cannibalistic cavorting Kuriboh Brothers, a satanic Kuriboh, and a pirate-themed Kuriboh, so it must be good. Oh, and there’s a duelrific metaphor for someone’s inability to move on after the death of his family. Dark!

Episode 80 clocks in at about 16 minutes and is the longest episode of YGOTAS to date. But LittleKuriboh revealed on Twitter that the episode was originally 20 minutes.

“I had to cut a lot of jokes about Tristan being dumb, but rest assured – his dumbness is still implied,” he said.

And remember, don’t talk about how Kaiba touches Joey!

A very old, one-of-a-kind Yu-Gi-Oh! card is off the market. Japanese Yugituber Yuuki (@youkiozisan) revealed that he has purchased the “T3” Gemini Elf for 19 million yen, or about $175,000. This Gemini Elf was the fourth-place prize in the 2001 Yu-Gi-Oh! Official Card Game Asia Championship.

Not only does Yuuki own the card but also the accompanying trophy. He has now placed both items on display at Card Shop Spiral, a trading card store in Akihabara, to thank his followers and let anyone stop by and marvel at these extraordinary pieces of Yu-Gi-Oh! history.

This Gemini Elf is part of the same set as the one-of-a-kind Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon that was on sale for $400,000 earlier this year. BEUD was the first-place prize card in the same 2001 tournament. Yuuki points out that that card is now in the hands of another Japanese Yugituber, Takucchi (@takutti0214), who is aiming to sell it for 1 billion yen, or about $9.17 million.

In the coming months, the Japanese casual wear maker will be selling 83 different shirt designs in its stores all over the world.

The other is a black T-shirt with Dark Magician in his iconic pose. These two shirts will arrive on May 25. These designs are already for sale on UNIQLO’s Japanese website, which lists both shirts as adult men’s cuts.
