So back in the day when the bunkoban was released I found this website documenting the differences and extras. They covered that there were some dialogue changes and a few things tidied up (such as the BEWD tablet being tidied up) but that was it. And considering it was random volumes I assumed they were finished.
Until I bought volume 21.
I don’t have a full set yet but from what I have this seems to be the only one with added pages. I wonder though if the other volumes for the AE arc have added pages given how much Takahashi was rushed for the arc AND ill.
But anyway. Chapter 312 contains 6 BRAND SPANKING NEW PAGES and I have to say I do love Takahashi’s updated style.
So it’s just been announced that Atem has been found so Aknadin is rightly freaking out because he thought he had it in the bag of Seto becoming King. He heads down to the prison cell with thoughts of killing Kisara so he can give his son the White Dragon.
Guard tells him that Seto ordered that she be moved and the guard can’t tell Aknadin where to. Poor guard gets stabbed for his trouble.
We then see Kisara looking out at the mess caused by Thief King Bakura crashing out of the palace and being chased by the others. She thinks that ‘the people and the town are being wounded’.
Next page is her thinking that ‘this calamity is perhaps….’ She then remembers what she was told about the ‘demon she is carrying within her own heart’ ie her ka (and way to give the girl a complex). So given her thoughts and memories she seems to be wondering if she herself caused what has happened (either physically or metaphorically as she is told a lot that she is bad luck). Guard tells her time is up and she has to return to her room. We then pan up to Seto watching and the next page is him watching some more before turning away.
We then go back to what was originally the next page which is everyone gathered with Isis as she explains what she found.
My personal opinion is I love these pages, not just because I’m a fan of the pairing but also Kisara. It’s so nice for her to get some more screen time, to get more insight into her and the pretty art hardly goes amiss!
The Fool with art of Ryou is the tarot card for this volume.
