A special guest made an unexpected appearance at this weekend’s Yu-Gi-Oh! Championship Series event in Atlanta, Georgia: Pot of Greed! The clay sculpture of the legendary card was handmade by Dimitrius Scameheorn, a senior at Kenwood High School in Clarksville, Tennessee, for his art class.

For bringing along his cool creation, Scameheorn was selected as one of the “Bounty Duelists” at the tournament, giving him and his opponents a chance to win booster packs for dueling.

Kaiba's check worth All of Joey Wheeler's Money in YGOTAS episode 79

Everyone, you must chill! …And watch LittleKuriboh’s latest episode of Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged, “YGO Kiwami“! In episode 79, Joey chases after Valon and the two engage in a duel to decide who is truly Mai’s better friend. There’s a 100 percent chance that Valon will go into a tragic exposition about his childhood and how some Yakuza destroyed his church in a super-violent-video-game-style fight scene. Beware of British slang.

Meanwhile, Yugi and the gang set out to find Joey using the least efficient method possible. But Kaiba doesn’t want anything to do with the Pot of Dweebs and their frugal means of transportation and ventures off with his only buddy. Will the gang be able to reunite with Joey in a reasonable number of episodes?

LittleKuriboh Watches GX

Since his last YGOTAS episode, LittleKuriboh has launched two new video projects. First is “LittleKuriboh Watches Yu-Gi-Oh! GX,” a weekly series where he summarizes and reviews one episode of the English dubbed anime in about half an hour. While this series has no connection to YGOTAS, LK’s trademark smart-alecky humor is very much present. There’s one new episode every Friday.

LittleKuribohVS on Twitch

LittleKuriboh’s second new video project is his Twitch channel, LittleKuribohVS. Every now and again, LK live streams some digital children’s trading card games and answers fan questions. So far he has only been playing Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Links, but he has talked about streaming Legacy of the Duelist as well. His channel is still very new and he has yet to set up a streaming schedule, so be sure to follow him to be alerted when he goes live.

That’s right, Yuya, season 2!

At last, the English dub of Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V is available online. 4K Media has confirmed that both season 1 and 2 will be streaming on Hulu starting tomorrow, February 1. This is welcome news to American Yu-Gi-Oh! fans, who up until now have had no way to watch season 2. Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V is currently airing on Nicktoons, but the network jumped to season 3 earlier this month after completing season 1.

The English dub of Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V has had a rocky presence online. Previously, Tubi TV began streaming season 1 in June 2017, but abruptly removed it less than a month later. On the other hand, the original Japanese version of the anime is available worldwide on Crunchyroll and is nearly complete.

Playmaker facing off against Yami Yugi in a Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS and Pyramid of Light mash-up

The return of Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie: Pyramid of Light to theaters in March just got even more exciting. This event will include not only a digitally remastered version of the 2004 movie but also an exclusive first look at the English dub of Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS! As more and more theaters sign on for this limited engagement screening, many websites, including Fandango, have updated their movie synopsis to include this new detail.

This special screening, hosted by 4K Media and Fathom Events, is listed as a two-hour event. With Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie clocking in at about one-and-a-half hours, it seems there might be enough time to fit in an episode of Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS, doesn’t it?

Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie will play in select U.S. theaters on March 11 and 12. Fathom Events has still not opened its webpage dedicated to this screening, but you can search for participating theaters and buy advance tickets on Fandango, MovieTickets.com, and Atom Tickets. As of this writing, there are theaters in 48 states and the District of Columbia taking part in this event.

Update (February 1): 4K Media today confirmed that the preview is a sneak peek of the first episode. Furthermore, Fathom Events’ Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie webpage is now open.

Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V, Scale 30: ‘The World That Sora Wants!’

Sora Shiunin, furious at Yuya Sakaki,in Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V manga chapter 30
Par for the course in the world of Yu-Gi-Oh!

Amid their underwater duel, Sora Shiunin at last reveals to Yuya Sakaki what the power of G.O.D. can truly accomplish.

“It is the creation…of perfect parallel worlds,” says Shiunin. “Countless parallel worlds…and among them the worlds that each person wants!”

It is through this power that he and his sister can remain together forever. Yuya doesn’t accept this.

“But is making a world just for one person really right?” Yuya asks. “Shutting yourself up in a world of your own… Is that any fun?”

Shiunin scowls fiercely at Yuya. He doesn’t see the need to further explain himself to the Dueltainer. Shiunin unleashes a torrent of Frightfur monsters and uses them to call forth his signature monster, Frightfur Daredevil. Its attacks Yuya, destroying his only defense and damaging his life points. As Yuya flounders, he hears a familiar voice.

“Seriously…your heart is too soft!”

In a blink of an eye, Yuri appears and declares himself to be Shiunin’s true opponent. He won’t stand for anyone hurting Yuya. Using his trademark Pendulum Fusion, Yuri summons his own signature monster, Starving Venemy Dragon, and destroys Frightfur Daredevil.

Shiunin regroups, using his Frightfur monsters’ effects to bring more monsters back to his field. He then uses them to summon a deadly new monster: Dangerous Frightfur Nightmary. With the head of a broken doll, a gangly and seemingly hollow body, and hands and arms that float in front of her, this monster is truly a terrifying sight. Strands of Nightmary’s long hair lash out like tentacles, grabbing the memory spheres around the two duelists. Yuri realizes that she increases her strength by absorbing others’ memories.

Shiunin orders Nightmary to attack. She opens her clackity mouth, letting out a shrill cry as apparitions emerge from her body and lunge toward Yuri. She annihilates Yuri’s dragon effortlessly.

Thoughts

Sora Shiunin is so different now. From the moment he dives into the pool, Sora, now in a wetsuit with his hair down, seems like a completely different person. And it’s more than just appearances. With his memories back, he’s so much more determined and vicious. There are numerous expressive and fun Sora faces in this chapter.

Sorry, Yuya, but I don’t understand your reasoning here. Sora only wishes to be with his sister, but Yuya disapproves of this, questioning the value of the existence of parallel worlds and the “fun” behind them. Really? What does that have to do with anything? There must be some information that hasn’t yet been introduced, something that explains the dangers of G.O.D.’s powers in more details. It would be one thing if Sora wanted to use the power for evil, but that doesn’t seem to be his intentions at all.

That Nightmary is one macabre monster. And look at her bangs. They look like Miu’s. Yuri has his work cut out for him fighting this monster. I don’t want the villains to win, but I wouldn’t be surprised if another one of Yuya’s counterparts falls. One by one they could go until only Yuya is left.

Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V, Scale 30: “The World That Sora Wants!” is available now in VIZ Media’s Weekly Shonen Jump No. 08 (January 22, 2018). Grab the issue from VIZ, Amazon, comiXology, and Google Play Books.
