yu gi oh gx manga

Looking at “The Valuable Books”, a series of OCG Yu-Gi-Oh price catalogs! They go all the way up to Arc-V and the modern era. My favorite thing is the cover art ^^

Stuff I learned from Duel Art:

  • Yugi, Jaden, and Yusei’s hair are based on paper, rock, and scissors, respectively
  • Yusei’s hair is also based on Takahashi’s bedhead
  • When Yu-Gi-Oh was about different games Takahashi scrambled to come up with a new one every week. Once he decided on the card game it was “like I finally escaped from a cramped canal into the wide open ocean.”
  • Originally Bronk Stone and Flip Turner were to be Yuma’s bullies. Takahashi was surprised and happy when they became Yuma’s good friends
  • “Marik and Dark Marik represent a wickedly dangerous relationship born of codependency and a split personality. They inspire bloodlust in each other while violently lashing out at everyone else.”
  • “Thief King Bakura and Diabound, the evil force driving his heart to darkness. I actually have a lot of fun drawing really, really evil monsters.”
  • “The Kaiba brothers. I was happy with Seto’s arrogant pose and Mokuba’s proud gaze.”
  • Yugi’s hair represents an open hand with hints of a dry autumn leaf. Originally it was just red but adding blue made it easier to shade, and that became purple.
  • “Priest Seto and Kisara, the vessel of the Blue-Eyes White Dragon. This illustration shows how present-day Seto is driven by the karma of his past life.”
  • Takahashi feels Jaden is the most appealing protagonist in Bonds Beyond Time.
  • All of the Ryo Bakura line art is Yami Bakura or Thief King Bakura, and all of the Marik Ishtar line art is Yami Marik
  • “The goal here was to represent the finale of the Battle City arc. Only Kaiba stands outside the border of the Millennium Puzzle.”
  • “Finally, we have an illustration of Yugi and his friends enjoying everyday life. Note that Yugi is without the Millennium Puzzle. This represents his carefree days after parting from Atem for good.”
Anime you should watch based off of your sign:
  • Aries: Yu-Gi-Oh! 5Ds
  • Taurus: Yu-Gi-Oh! 1999 Toei Movie
  • Gemini: Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters
  • Cancer: Yu-Gi-Oh! Pyramid of Light
  • Leo: Read the Yu-Gi-Oh! R manga
  • Virgo: Yu-Gi-Oh! GX
  • Libra: Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V
  • Scorpio: Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal
  • Sagittarius: Toei Yu-Gi-Oh! (Yu-Gi-Oh! Season 0)
  • Capricorn: Yu-Gi-Oh! Capsule Monsters
  • Aquarius: Yu-Gi-Oh! Bonds Beyond Time
  • Pisces: Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal II

Another thing that’s amazing about Yu-Gi-Oh is not only the amount of content created by Kazuki Takahashi and the various anime and game staff, but the volume of content fans have created. The manga ran for 343 chapters, Toei’s anime ran for 27 episodes and a movie, and the DM anime for 224 episodes, plus movies, GX, 5Ds, Zexal, Arc-V, Vrains, and video games. But fans took what started 21 years ago and keep it alive to this day, whether it’s fan art you could look at for days, fan fiction you could read and reread for hours, remixes of existing music or original compositions, or comics that tell original stories.

There’s so much stuff we could have seen but didn’t in Yu-Gi-Oh, and some stuff we did see that could have been better. And instead of leaving it as-is we looked at what we were given, used the tools we had, and made it ours and others’. We are all pieces of the puzzle that is Yu-Gi-Oh.
