New cards coming to the Yu-Gi-Oh! Official Card Game have caught the eye of a popular manga author. Today, the official Japanese Yu-Gi-Oh! news hub YU-GI-OH.jp unveiled three new card themes debuting this August in Japan. One of the themes is called Dragon Maid and features — you guessed it — a human woman with dragon horns, wings, and a tail who is dressed as a maid.

The announcement included pictures of two cards from this theme. Dragon Maid Husky (shown above) is a charming dragon maid ready to serve you. Dragon Maids’ Kindness (below) has Husky and four other dragon maids busily prepping a dining room.

This news quickly made it to coolkyousinnjya, the creator of Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid, who took an immediate liking to the cards.

Dragon maids are in Yu-Gi-Oh!!” tweeted coolkyousinnjya. “I want to build a deck with them!”

C’mon, Konami, you can make it happen. Send some cards to coolkyousinnjya!

Any fans of Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid out there? What do you think of these cards?

Check out the Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid manga from Seven Seas Entertainment and the anime on Crunchyroll and Funimation.

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.

The owner of one of the rarest Yu-Gi-Oh! cards in existence is graciously putting it on display at a card shop in Japan — and on sale for a hefty price. Hassaku (@saku06s) is the owner of the “T3” Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon, which was the first-place prize in the Yu-Gi-Oh! Official Card Game Asia Championship of 2001. Only one copy of this card, sealed in a custom-made case, exists in the world and it was presented to the winner of that tournament.

Yesterday, Hassaku announced that the card is now on display at Card Shop Spiral, a trading card store in Akihabara. It is also available for purchase — for 45,000,000 yen, or about $400,000.

This isn’t the first time that this Blue-Eyes Ultimate Dragon has gone on the market. Hassaku first obtained the card in August 2016 and attempted to sell it for 999,000,000 yen (about $9 million). At the time, Hassaku included an autograph and sketch of Yugi from Kazuki Takahashi, the creator of Yu-Gi-Oh!. Takahashi presented the card to the tournament winner and apparently also created the sketch and signature right on the spot, explained Hassaku. After one week and no takers, Hassaku offered a 99 percent off discount, dropping the price to a measly 9,990,000 yen (about $90,000).

Some collectors must be kicking themselves for not buying it back then.
