Meet Yusaku Fujiki, the main character of the sixth Yu-Gi-Oh! series.
“The newest anime in the franchise that began with Kazuki Takahashi’s Yu-Gi-Oh! manga will be coming in July 2017. According to an official press release, the theme of the new anime–which is the sixth series in the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise–is “Let’s take one step forward and give it a try!”
The new anime will feature new protagonist Yūsaku Fujiki, a boy who hates standing out more than anything, and luckily for him, he doesn’t stand out at school at all. However, he starts meeting new people through the Duel Monsters card game.”
It looks like Godzilla, but that would be violating international copyright laws! So that’s why Yu-Gi-Oh! typically just makes references. Kaiju is the Japanese word for ‘monster’, but these Kaiju look awfully familiar don’t they? So as you can see we have Dogoran The Mad Flame Kaiju with Tokyo burning in the background, which is a reference to 3 Godzilla monsters in one if you can believe it! The obvious of course being Dogora in its name but its wings would indicate that it’s more like Destroyah, but the flames on its body make it look like Burning Godzilla. But what’s this? Gameciel the Sea Turtle Kaiju, which is a reference to Gamera, a well known rival to the Godzilla franchise. Kumongous the sticky string Kaiju, which is the obvious reference to Kumonga the giant spider from Son of Godzilla and Destroy All Monsters. Radian, the Multidimensional Kaiju…whoo-boy this is a tough one, His name refers to Rodan it seems, but as for his overall makeup it’s nothing like Rodan at all, in fact he appears to have characteristics of Gyaos from Gamera, Ultraman Belial and Dark Lugiel from the Ultraman series.
Now I know what you’re thinking, where could all of their battles POSSIBLY take place? Tokyo of course! With their field spell Kyoutou Waterfront. But where does G-Force fit into this? Kaiju Capture Mission is where they fit in it seems as they poise their tanks and fly their jets ready for the battle between monsters. Looks like the Shadow Games of Yu-Gi-Oh! just got a LOT bigger…
Promos for the TCG version of Raging Tempest have begun with the sneak peek confirmed for February 4th and/or 5th. Konami has revealed the promo card for the sneak peek and the playmat you can get at such event.
Fusion Recycling Plant Field Spell Card Once per turn: You can discard 1 card; add 1 “Polymerization” from your Deck or Graveyard to your hand. Once per turn, during the End Phase: You can target 1 monster in your Graveyard that was used as a Fusion Material for a Fusion Summon this turn; add it to your hand.
Man, I never thought that sneak peek promo card could be this good; this is like a continuous Fusion Recovery, but better. I know a few fusion decks that will give this card a good use.
