Kazuki Takahashi’s Yu-Gi-Oh! Transcend Game manga is getting an official English translation! VIZ Media’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine announced in this today’s issue that it will publish the two-part story, which bridges the gap between the end of the original Yu-Gi-Oh! manga and the upcoming Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions movie. Part 1 will run in the December 19 issue next week and part 2 will run in the January 2 issue. The story was originally published in Japanese earlier this year in April.
You won’t want to miss this. If you are not a WSJ subscriber (you’re passing over the best deal for comics anywhere — $25.99 for one year, or $0.54 per issue!), you can still buy individual issues for $0.99 each. VIZ’s WSJ is available on VIZ.com, Android, iOS, Amazon, comiXology, and Google Play Books.

Update (December 19, 2016): Yu-Gi-Oh! Transcend Game, Part 1, is here!
