Why was Atem so edgy?
>>
His shtick was driving people insane or killing people, what other personality could he have?
>>
WE

I would've probably stabbed my hand just to beat him, wouldn't even care about the money
>>
>>137959485
It's not shown in that crop, but IIRC you lose if you stab yourself.
>>
>>137959485
Then you'd lose. The point of the game is that it rewards greed and punishes carelessness.

Found the full page, it turns out it's chapter 1.

>>137959737
So what if I angle my hand and stab upwards with the knife and push all the money off
>>
Did anyone else actually read this?
>>
>>137959737
Just stab as hard as you can inbetween your fingers.
>>
>>137959791
that's cheating
>>
Why not just stab the other person and take all the money
>>
>>137959791

The he would punish you for exploiting a loophole. Only he can exploit a loophole.

Yuugi is a no-skill cheater who punishes other for cheating. Go read Gamble Fish if you want proper "gambling"

Also accurate.

Great series.
>>
>>137959876
It's actually a solid 9/10.
>>
>>137958782
IIRC he was fully conscious and aware for those 3000 years he spent trapped in a shattered Millenium Puzzle. Trapped, unable to do anything, presumably unable to communicate with anyone, only having himself as company. Pretty sure anyone would go edgy and insane after that.

>>137959963
>I'm losing at a game? Better commit first degree murder!
>>
>>137959791
You're the type of idiot who'd get his mind crushed or maimed for cheating

Although Atem pretty much cheated all the time
>>
>>137959876
Yes. It's actually a lot of fun.
>>
>>137959996
The point is he's a wizard. He can do whatever the fuck he wants, and the game is just to mess with people.

Remember, his card game superpower is stacking his deck. I don't think he gives a shit about actual gambling.
>>
>>137964225
Yeah, by the time he enters into a game he's already made up his mind on how he's gonna end it. He's not evaluating anybody through the game.

So that makes him no different than a serial killer who goes with a patterned MO. No point in having a game when you can bend the rules as you like.
>>
>>137964483
Pretty much. He targets people who piss him off, then constructs an elaborate scenario that drives them insane or injures them.

Him being pretty evil is what makes the series fun though.

New episode of Yugioh the Abridged Series is out in case anyone cares

>>
>>137962774
It's mentioned in the first chapter that a Shadow Game magically makes you act according to your "true nature". In this one, the other guy had difficulty controlling his hand and found himself stabbing more deeply than he intended to.

>So that makes him no different than a serial killer who goes with a patterned MO.
Atem was a straight up bad guy when he was first released before Yugi and his friends mellowed him out

To be fair, it never stated you cannot remove your opposition to win the game. Then again, Yuugi just trolled him since he was going to punish him whether he won or not.
>>
>>137958782
It will be really awesome if Hollywood make a movie out of this and title it King of Games.

Too bad discussion is dead.

1,99 EUR per chapter is too expensive when a Volume only costs ~7EUR
>>
>>137958782
Damn I missed the old Yu-Gi-Oh when they played digimon,D&D and monster wrestler. I never care about Kaiba and his stupid card game. That mind game against the terrorist with Ferris wheel is one of better moment of manga.

>>137962760
This. I always figured, because the other Millenium Spirits are insane edgelords, it's no wonder that Atem's spirit went completely batshit over time. And by the time the Duel Monsters portion of YGO started, his spirit kind of healed or some shit, found some stability.

>>137959996
He's not cheating here so you really have no point whatsoever

In fact all of his "cheating" is pretty much exclusive to the card game
And a lot of it is because it predates the official TCG or he reality warps with the Millenium Puzzle/Hearts of the Cards bullshit

You're putting too much thought into this
Yugioh was simply a lot different before it turned into cardshit

At first it was more like a Horror manga(hence the art style in the very early chapters)
>>
>Atem

REEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

>Kazuki Takahashi found the D'Arby brothers fight in JJBA so interesting he based a manga series off it.

I still find that quite interesting.
>>
>>137958782

That wasn't Atem, that was Zorc.

No, seriously. Remember, Zorc AND Atem were in the Millenium Puzzle. Until Atem 'settled' in Yugi's body, he was dark and edgy because he was pulling double-duties with a demon.
>>
>>137959876
It was actually pretty good before card games took over for the whole series.

Kaiba was fucking insane. Mokuba was badass as well.
>>
>>137962774
He becomes a cop later, iirc. Card games on motorcycles and all that
>>
>>137964632
Lol he's got crushing depression and an sjw wife
>>
>>137969398
I have no memory of this.
What chapter was it established in?
>>
>>137971913
None becaue Zork was in the ring. Atem is in the puzzle. Don't listen to >>137969398 as he has no idea what he's talking about.
>>
>>137968859
Wow, that just made me realize how much potential on his character was wasted.
>>
>>137964483
He only bends the rules in certain cases,in most of them he outsmarts the opponent. Then the card game came,which had no rules at all and was more like an expendable RPG than an actual card game.
>>
>>137969557
>It was actually pretty good before card games took over for the whole series.
Duel Monsters was the best thing that happened to the series. The anime is better.
