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.

March has been a great month for the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime series, which are getting picked up by more and more networks for free viewing — and not just for fans in the United States.

Amazon Prime Video is now streaming the English dub of Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters season 4 and season 5. This follows the addition of seasons 1 through 3 in January. Furthermore, Amazon Prime now also has Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V season 1 in English.

Not to be outdone, Netflix has added seasons 3 through 5 of Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters. After years of only carrying the first two seasons, the world’s most dominant video subscription network at last has the entire series! Netflix is also swinging into action with Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V season 1 for its American audience. But — viewers in Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom have access to both seasons 1 and 2! (In the U.S., season 2 is still only on Hulu as of this writing.)

Finally, the American Spanish-language children’s TV channel ¡Sorpresa! (“Surprise!”) announced that it has acquired the broadcast rights to Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s. The dueling will take place weekdays at 6 pm ET/3 pm PT starting April 2. Check SorpresaTV.com for more network and scheduling information.

And as reported earlier this month, there is plenty more Yu-Gi-Oh! to watch on Tubi TV and YouTube.

The 2017 Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG North American World Championship Qualifier has announced its next voice actor guest! Making his grand return to the dueling stage is Ted Lewis, best known for playing Bakura in Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters, Chumley Huffington in Yu-Gi-Oh! GX, and Jack Atlas in Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s and ARC-V. This will be Ted’s first tournament appearance since 2012 when he and six other voice actors attended YCS Providence to raise money for Dan Green.

With an appearance by The King at this event, could this mean that the Western release of the hotly anticipated Red Rising Dragon is just up ahead? One thing’s for sure — a Synchro versus Fusion showdown between Jack Atlas and Aster Phoenix is perfect for getting the crowd all fired up.

This year’s Yu-Gi-Oh! NAWCQ will be held in Chicago, Illinois, on July 8 and 9. Be on the lookout for the schedule of the autograph signings, live duel, and public events, coming soon to the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG events page.

OverDrive: Free Yu-Gi-Oh! Manga E-Books from Your Local Library

Plenty of libraries already own VIZ Media’s many Yu-Gi-Oh! manga series on their shelves. And now, there’s a new option for Yu-Gi-Oh! and manga fans to borrow and read the series for free from their local library. VIZ Media announced last week that it has increased the number its titles available on OverDrive, a digital platform that distributes books, videos, and music to libraries across the globe. VIZ’s latest update makes 99 new series available to participating public and school libraries in the United States and Canada, including the following Yu-Gi-Oh! titles:

So what is OverDrive and how do you use it?

OverDrive is a digital reading platform; its app is available everywhere — on Android, iOS, Windows, Mac, the web, and more.

The first step to using OverDrive is to search for your local library and see if it is subscribed to OverDrive’s services. OverDrive is available in 90 percent of public libraries in the U.S.

Find a library on OverDrive

Once you locate a library, visit its website and search for a title. Let’s say you want to read volume 1 of Yu-Gi-Oh! Duelist.

Search for a title on OverDrive

It’s available! Click “Borrow” on the search results page…

Yu-Gi-Oh! Duelist Volume 1 available in the OverDrive search results

…or on the book’s details page.

To borrow a book from OverDrive, you have to sign in with your library card. You do have one of these, right? If not, take a trip to your local library and apply for one. It’s free. (Or rather, you’ve already helped fund your local library with your tax dollars, so you might as well use it. Don’t underestimate the value of having a library’s services at your fingertips in this internet age!)

Sign in with a library card on OverDrive

Then, start reading.

Good stuff!

Placing a Hold

On OverDrive, VIZ’s Yu-Gi-Oh! e-books are available to libraries under the “one copy, one user” lending model. The library pays for a certain number of copies of a title and can only lend out that many copies at one time, exactly like a physical book on a shelf. So, there might be situations where an e-book you want to read isn’t available.

But don’t worry, you can place a hold on unavailable books. This option is available in the search results…

…and on the book’s details page.

When the book becomes available, it will automatically be checked out to your account and you’ll receive an email alert about it.

Recommend Yu-Gi-Oh! to Your Library

Libraries want to get books that people want to read, so even if your local library doesn’t offer any Yu-Gi-Oh! manga, it’s absolutely worth it to recommend it to them.

“The way that librarians find out if you want manga is to petition the libraries,” explained Laura Dooley, ‎digital publishing production manager at VIZ Media, in episode 198 of the Weekly Shonen Jump podcast. “But they may not know about it until you request it. That’s been really successful for us. People finding out about that and then contacting their local library.”

“It’s not like the library needs like a hundred people to request it before they do it,” added Jeff Ruberg, a software engineer at VIZ. “It probably needs just a couple.”

“Yeah, and they’re more willing to take a chance on e-books because it isn’t the same as physically taking up space in their catalog,” said Dooley.

OverDrive makes it easy to recommend books. The option is available on the search results page…

Unavailable Yu-Gi-Oh! Millennium World books in the OverDrive search results

…and on a title’s details page.

While you’re at it, check out the list of all of VIZ’s manga titles available on OverDrive and see if there’s anything else you want to read. As of the end of February, about half of VIZ’s digital catalog is available to libraries, said Dooley, including a large selection of Jump series.

Read and support manga at your local library! You’re helping support the manga creators and industry when you do!

Screenshot of the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime on the STARZ app

This past month, Yu-Gi-Oh! and its many anime spin-off series made their way to a few new video platforms, giving fans even more options to watch and buy the anime they love.

First up is the STARZ app (pictured above), where you can now find season 1 of the classic Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters series in English. Yu-Gi-Oh! joins other titles like Cowboy Bebop: The Movie, The Secret World of Arietty, and a few of the Ghost in the Shell animated movies as the only anime in the app. The STARZ app is free if your cable subscription package includes the network; otherwise, it costs $8.99 per month.

All throughout the month, Valve’s gaming and video distribution platform Steam has been adding plenty of Yu-Gi-Oh! anime titles to its catalog. Now available are the English dubs of:

And last but certainly not least, the English dub of Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL is now on Crunchyroll for U.S. viewers. After the anime streaming platform apparently mistakenly announced its availability last month, the series is accessible for real this time. Whew.
