Jean-Claude Magnum in episode 80 and Zigfried von Schroeder in episode 197

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.

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.

Yami Yugi T-shirt by UNIQLO

Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine turns 50 years old this year! The home of Kazuki Takahashi’s Yu-Gi-Oh! manga, WSJ has teamed up with UNIQLO to develop Jump UT, a new line of T-shirts featuring the hottest WSJ series and characters. In the coming months, the Japanese casual wear maker will be selling 83 different shirt designs in its stores all over the world. Today, Jump UT made its debut in UNIQLO’s online and brick-and-mortar stores in the United States — and Yu-Gi-Oh! has the honor of being one of the first series included at launch!

Currently, there is one Yu-Gi-Oh! design available, pictured above, featuring Yami Yugi. The image is taken from the title page of chapter 200 of Yu-Gi-Oh! Duelist. This shirt is only available in kids sizes.

At least two more Yu-Gi-Oh! designs will be available in U.S. stores in the near future. One is a white T-shirt with the three Blue-Eyes White Dragon cards printed on the left breast. 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.

Gong hugging Yuya enthusiastically in Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V episode 38

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.

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.
