Since there's a new YGO movie releasing next month here in the west, I thought it would be cool to dump the original manga which the movie is based off of. For those of you who only ever watched the anime, I highly recommend reading the manga as it's much darker and better written than the anime was imo. There's also none of the fillers you have to deal with. Since the movie is releasing on Jan 27, 2017, I will dump one volume a day leading up to its release.
Today we continue the Duelist Kingdom arc in Volume 9.
Seems like I am the only one here for now. Anyway.
As a person who only saw Duelist Kingdom in anime I am now reading the manga. Should I watch post Duelist Kingdom arc after I am done with this? What are the additions or differences does manga have?
I think Battle City is definitely worth watching. It's probably the most faithful arc to the manga in the entire anime. There are a couple of changes and a few filler episodes but overall very solid stuff.
The Virtual World, DOMA, and KCGP are all filler arcs.
The final arc isn't adapted that well either. It has a lot of original content that wasn't in the manga version and the animation becomes really atrocious.
The virtual world arc is decent. It fleshes out Kaiba's past a bit more than the manga but at the same time it kind of waters down how harsh of a past he had.
I don't really care for the other filler arcs, DOMA because of how it messed up the lore of the series and regressed the character development of Atem, and KCGP was just a mini-duel tournament that wasn't as high stakes or exciting as Battle City or even Duelist Kingdom.
Knowing what her cards are without looking at them gives her no more of an advantage as knowing what her cards are by looking at them.
I guess this is supposed to be psychological warfare, but it comes across kind of weird. I imagine someone like Kaiba wouldn't give a shit.
>Joey wins because Yami cheats for him to get him the card that he gave to him in the first place
So, basically Joey did absolutely nothing on his own in this duel aside from smelling perfume.
Did they lose trust in the corporation because Kaiba lost a game or because he tried to publicly execute a small child in a game publicly?
I feel like this is an important and worrying distinction to make.
Probably because he lost the game in front of thousands of people
this is after he tried to kill Yugi and co in a series of games + he caused some dude to kill himself and almost killed Yugi's garndpa, this also helped kaiba to get out of being such an ass
And that ends volume 9. Tomorrow we will continue the Duelist Kingdom arc in volume 10.
So the seiyuu actually said "Yugi-boy" in Engrish? Because otherwise it's a literal translation of japanese honorifics, which is stupid considering there's no modern English equivalent for most of them.
The stolen chips and cards make much fucking sense in the manga seeing that they play in table mats.
Unlike the fucking anime where they use that retarded and huge holographic field. What the fuck they were thinking?
Not really. Duel Monsters actually have a will of their own as you will find out later when the origin of Duel Monsters is revealed. Kaiba has a very special connection with Blue-Eyes too as you will see in the final arc. This is just foreshadowing at the moment.
This game before the hologram things came out must have been an absolute nightmare to referee, not even high level players in the game can work out the rules and they walk their monsters into death.
You should know by now that Yugi is the King of Asspulls. Just look at the RPG with Bakura where the end of the game is just
>Bakura: "And now I do something where I should win."
>Ryou: "haha nope"
about five times in a row.
