Melvin and Bakura in an ancient Egyptian lightsaber duel in YGOTAS episode 46

Episode 45 left us with a huge cliffhanger: would Little Kuriboh’s beloved series be canceled?! Then, at its debut on Saturday evening, MAGFest organizers touted episode 46 as the “final” Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged episode! So is it true? Is this really the end of YGO: TAS? See for yourself! No spoilers from me, other than the fact that Little Kuriboh selected yet another excellent song for the characters to sing: Ben E. King’s R&B hit “Stand By Me.”

Back in April, when he announced that he would be taking a break after episode 39, LK also said that he’d be going on hiatus when he finished the second season. Looks like this will be the case after all, though LK notes that he’ll now be able to work on “fun stuff” with his friends. Hmm, I wonder what that could mean?

Episode 46 is for now only available on YouTube. I’ll post some download links when it makes its way to the YGO: TAS Blip.tv account.

Wielding lightsabers, Melvin and Bakura prepare to duel in YGOTAS episode 45

The origin of Melvin is at last revealed in episode 45 of Yu-Gi-Oh: The Abridged Series, released yesterday on YouTube! Clocking in at just a second under 11 minutes, it beats out episode 42 as Little Kuriboh’s longest YGO: TAS episode to date!

In episode 45, “Requiem For A Nyeh,” Ishizu brings to light the events that led Marik become who he is today: his first trip outside, his viewing of the “Kill Your Family Show,” his first yaoi comic… The episode also features a fantastically twisted spoof of Harry Chapin’s number-one hit “Cat’s in the Cradle.”

Towards the end of the episode, Melvin’s true allegiance is revealed, and he and Bakura prepare to face-off using ancient Egyptian lightsabers (Melvin’s appears to rise out of his crotch) to determine the fate of the show! Could the next episode be the last?! LK reminds us that it’ll be premiering at MAGFest 8. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see!

Screenshot from Little Kuriboh's promo for MAGFest 8

Earlier today, Little Kuriboh released a promo for MAGFest 8 — The Music and Gaming Festival — which he and many other gaming-related personalities and musicians will be attending early next year. What’s really cool about this short video is that it co-stars a professional voice actor: Jon St. John, who’s been the voice for the Duke Nukem character for over a decade! LK says he jumped at the chance to work with St. John after the voice actor offered to lend his voice for any MAGFest promos. Awesome!

LK first announced his upcoming appearance at MAGFest in early November. MAGFest 8 will be held in Alexandria, Virginia from January 1 to 4, 2010.

Elsewhere on the Internets, a YGO: TAS character recently made yet another cameo appearance in a video by a team member from That Guy with the Glasses. This time it’s Yami, who utters a now-famous line in a reference-filled episode of Linkara’s Atop the Fourth Wall! Once again I ask: is this canon?! ;)
