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 will continue Duelist Kingdom in Volume 13.
Kaiba probably thought that Yugi may have a trap or something to stop his negate attack, and such he went for the suicide to win 100%.
Or he forgot, too stressed and shit.
He does use it later against pegasus.
>boys aren't allowed to have feelings
>especially not when they almost murder someone or lose their grandfather forever
Weren't you just talking about sexism a few volumes back, Anzu?
I didn't, underage. I was watching the show through shitty hk subs back then. No excuse for you
Kaiba attempted Suicide was just mind games. Everyone here saw he had negate attack but Kaiba didn't know if Yugi had a counter so he got into Yugi's head to see if he could trigger the trap or if Yugi would just give up. I doubt Kaiba would have jumped if he lost but Kaiba NEEDED to guarantee victory for himself. And let's not forget that Yugi wagered his life like three times on the island.
Just like Fusion and Ritual Monsters, the Toon copies we see aren't actual cards, they're just the original cards affected by Toon World. Toon Alligator is an actual card with "Toon" in its name.
Also, "Alligator Sword" is "Wyvern Soldier" in Japan.
I was originally doing that but a lot of them are 404 now so I stopped.
So could you distract Pegasus by thinking dirty things on the surface/screaming in your mind while subtley planning?
Basically, does Pegasus only read surface level thoughts, or could you actually find a way around his mind scan by thinking distracting things on the surface?
>Toon World auto-protects all of the monsters on the opponent's turn
>Toons auto-avoid all attacks
I love how Pegasus is so shameless about cheating. He probably made the Toon archetype that morning.
In-universe, there's no reason for a Blue Eyes Toon Dragon to exist since Kaiba has all three of the only copies, so Pegasus made that card purely to fuck with Kaiba.
but, shouldnt that be the best course of action for pegasus?
>duel kaiba with the DD
>Utterly defeat him, proving that his tech is not enough against his powers
>send kaiba thru absolute despair as kaiba loses EVERYTHING even by managing to play by his rules.
really, i get, he is a millionaire and a smart man, but if you know you will win this one no matter whatever the opponent does, you shouldnt be so cautious.
at best, just bring a gun hidden in case kaiba wants to try some of his kaiba-moves
Toon World is basically just one big "fuck you" card.
I mean I WOULD, but I can't speak Russian. I'm not independently wealthy like Pegasus either, so I probably couldn't get anyone to pay attention.
Crime and Punishment is one of my favorite novels though.
>I pull a gun on you Kaiba-boy!
>Please Pegasus, I'll just throw a card in front of the hammer!
>Nice try, Kaiba-boy, but I knew you'd do that! That's why I own a Glock!
Come to think of it, Pegasus is probably part of the reason I like the "traditionally intellectual" persona. His love of cartoons in particular is probably part of the reason I don't see things like cartoons and games as inherently childish or dumb, even those that actually are aimed at kids. That and, y'know, reading a freaking cartoon book about games.
Same. I understood why, but I was disappointed that no one in my high school literature class could slog through it. /blog
Not that kind of "freak out"!
Well, there's a lot things in cartoons you can't fully appreciate as a young kid. When I was watching Aladdin or Beauty and the Beast as a young kid, pretty much the whole thing flew over my head, not just the things they throw in there for adults like Genie's Jack Nicholson impression.
My Freshman English teacher gave us that book 3 weeks before the end of the year and told us to read it for our final exam. It was a fucking slog but I actually ended up liking it.
Mai looks so much better in the manga
She looks like an actual gyaru, and not a middle-aged hag trying to hide her age with excessive makeup like in the anime.
Though all the girls look better
Glad I caught up with everyone. Hope everyone is having a blast like I am. I've never actually read the manga at this point because Shonen Jump here in America stopped printing Yu-Gi-Oh! right when DK was going to start.
This is motherfucking Jonouchi we're talking about
The guy kills chainsaw-wielding murderers and doesn't give a fuck
the point of the tournament was:
>to promote DM to the unsuspecting, unskilled for this tourney masses.
>to lure the kaiba bros. in order to have them as soulless dolls
>to defeat yugi, ensuring I2 control over Kaibacorp.
This torunament was never meant to be fair to the contestants, specially, those targeted by pegasus.
And that ends Volume 13. Tomorrow we will continue the Duelist Kingdom arc in Volume 14. The climax approaches!
>Mai uses bondage cards
>after Mai duels Joey, everyone starts saying stuff to him like how he's a dog that should kneel at his master's feet
>before his semi-final duel with Mai, Yugi dresses up in leather and a choker
Really makes you think.
The dub did try to make him more serious at some points while also keeping some of his comedic moments.
He actually gets pissed in the anime when Kaiba destroys Blue Eyes Toon Dragon.
I'm 100% certain every card game designer does this. If they're willing to give exclusive OP cards just to guys keeping peace at a tournament, they must have things for themselves.
I've had "Toon World Theme" stuck in my head this entire thread. Make it stop
