Little Kuriboh is a really humble guy. It is, I think, one of his best and most respectable qualities. Modesty is something that’s seen all too infrequently from successful individuals in today’s busy world, even less so from those who’ve built their success on the anonymous and impersonal Internet realm. LK isn’t even someone who was seeking fame and recognition when he created Yu-Gi-Oh: The Abridged Series. It happened anyway though. And yet, despite single-handedly producing a piece of work that’s become a worldwide success — a phenomenon, even — LK has always put his friends and fans first and has never arrogantly flaunted his achievements. That’s just the kind of stand-up guy he is. It’s no surprise, then, that LK has made a big thank-you video that gives big, big props to all of his supporters, including the guys from the official YGO: TAS fansite, TGWTG, Rooster Teeth (whoa, I didn’t know LK worked with them!), TeamFourStar, the other competitors and winners in Mashable’s Open Web Awards, and many more folks.

Since the start of the Open Web Award finals, the number of subscribers to LK’s channel has climbed from around 79,000 to over 87,000. The 107 videos on CardGamesFTW today have over 17.8 million total views. The YGO: TAS Twitter and Facebook pages have thousands of followers. Now that CardGamesFTW has been voted Funniest YouTube Channel, these numbers will only increase. What does the future hold for LK, his channel, and his beloved series?

In other news, YGO: TAS is back on iTunes! Hooray! And here I was thinking that everyone had given up on it already! I’ll update my YGO: TAS indexes sometime in the near future with links to the many new episodes made available for download.
