English-dubbed episodes of Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s and Yu-Gi-Oh! GX are at last available on Crunchyroll to viewers in the United States, announced the anime streaming platform today. (Note: See update below.) Both series had long been available worldwide on CR except to the U.S., Italian-speaking Europe, and most of Asia.

With this announcement, Crunchyroll also added season 3 of Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL (episodes 99 through 146), completing the series. ZEXAL is still not available to the U.S., Italian-speaking Europe, and most of Asia.

(News from Crunchyroll.)

Update (March 26): Crunchyroll edited its news post. Originally, it announced that Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s and ZEXAL were available to U.S. viewers. However, ZEXAL has now been replaced by GX. Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL, including the newly added third season, is not available to the U.S. I’ve updated this post to include the correct information.

Three cheers for 4K Media (Konami) and Crunchyroll, who today released the final episodes of Yu-Gi-Oh! GX subbed.

My Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters GX – SUBBED Episodes page has been updated with links to the new videos. Congratulations and thanks go out to 4K Media, Crunchyroll, and the translator and editors for completing and publishing another Yu-Gi-Oh! series uncut in Japanese with English subtitles!

What will become of Judai, and what dark new enemy awaits the students of Duel Academia? Don’t forget to add this anime to your CR queue, and get ready for the fourth and final story arc of Yu-Gi-Oh!

Yu-Gi-Oh! 20th Selection announcement banner

The celebration of the 20th anniversary of Yu-Gi-Oh! continues in Japan with Yu-Gi-Oh! 20th Selection, an upcoming anime series that will replay the “best” duels from the Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters, GX, 5D’s, and ZEXAL series.

The first episode will premiere on TV Tokyo on September 7 at 2:05 am JST with the Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters episode “Resurrection of the Great Evil God Zorc” (episode 215). TV Tokyo’s sister stations will also carry the show during their own late-night time slots.

TV Tokyo opened a website (in Japanese) for the series yesterday.

For those keeping count, there will soon be a total of four separate Yu-Gi-Oh! series airing on TV Tokyo every week: Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V; Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters: 20th Remaster; Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters: Battle City Arc; and now, Yu-Gi-Oh! 20th Selection.

Free Manga: Yu-Gi-Oh! Color Edition Vol. 1, 5, 10, 19 & More Through May 9

Banner advertising free Yu-Gi-Oh! manga offered during Shueisha's Haruman!! 2016 Spring Digital Manga Festival

Another free Japanese Yu-Gi-Oh! manga campaign from Shueisha is underway again! To celebrate the premiere of Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions this past Saturday, the publisher is letting readers peruse four volumes of the new Yu-Gi-Oh! Color Edition, as well as the first volume of Yu-Gi-Oh! R, GX, 5D’s, and ZEXAL — all for free through May 9.

This time, the free books are not available on Shueisha’s Shonen Jump+ platform, and most of the good e-book platforms advertised, like Amazon Kindle, are not accessible outside Japan. The best one that does work is probably eBookJapan, and while it’s not perfect (the zoom feature is kind of awkward), it’ll do in a pinch. Here is what’s available:

You may be presented with a splash page titled 利用規約 (Terms of Use). It is simply explaining that you will be viewing copyrighted works and are not allowed to copy or do other bad things with them. Click the large button labeled 利用規約に同意する (I agree to the Terms of Use) to continue.

This free Yu-Gi-Oh! manga campaign is part of Shueisha’s “Haruman!! 2016” Spring Digital Manga Festival, which has been running since mid-March. The event offers readers the opportunity to check out over 130 manga for free for a limited time. Visit eBookJapan’s Haruman!! 2016 page to see the titles currently available and click the button labeled 無料で読む (Read For Free) to take a look at any of the books. There are a lot of neat series that are already published in English, like Nana, Seraph of the End, and Nisekoi, but there are also tons that aren’t!

Update: Ah, looks like the free Yu-Gi-Oh! books are available on Shonen Jump+ after all. Hooray!

Episodes 53 through 104 are now available in Japanese with English subs to all viewers outside Asia, Italy, San Marino, and Vatican City. These episodes correspond to season 2 of the English dub.

The next story arc — Dimension World — has already begun with episode 105, a recap of Judai’s adventures during his previous semesters. Don’t forget to add Yu-Gi-Oh! GX to your queue so you’ll always know when new episodes are uploaded!
