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.


Memory World continues in volume 34.

Yeah, especially this arc. The anime version was half assed and poorly done, making every fight like the card game when it's supposed to be actual monster battles, and the art and animation was ass. Only thing I liked was the Ceremonial Duel.

well, in order to get his BEWDs, kaiba did:

>give shittons of money or super rare cards to people for the cards

and when that didnt work

>extorted people violently
>leave people in crippling bankrupcy, or charged them as criminals.

Yugi and Joey were invited to DEATH-T, Tristan was around the place at the time, Tea was working there at the time.

Gramps WAS kidnapped and tortured, but it was ONE person, not dozens as Priest Seto is doing here.
>>
>>152510368
At least Seto only captured criminals and thugs, those people deserved to be tortured.
Death-T Kaiba hired professional killers to kill his own innocent classmates as an amusement and even put his own brother in a penalty game.
You tell me which one is worse
>>
>>152510628
Seto is doing it to protect his kingdom. Kaiba was doing it purely out of selfish reason
Not that it makes Seto right, but it makes Kaiba even more of an asshole than Seto

Nah, both Obelisk and Osiris can beat Diabond in a straight fight without problems, Bakura only beat Osiris because he cheated
But seriously, Atem really should have just summoned Ra from the beginning, God Phoenix would have killed Bakura on spot and the memory arc would have been finished in last volume.
>>
>>152511299
So what happened in the real version of these events? Did Atem just immediately summon Ra instead of using Slifer?

In real world, Yami Bakura was BTFO by Ra's second ability "One Turn Kill"
In memory world, Thief Bakura was outright killed by Ra's third ability "God Phoenix"

So if Bakura defeated the Pharoah here, how did he have his match with Seto?
>>
>>152515270
Atem survives with 1 LP.
>>
>>152510365
>>152510309

Is Diabound the Madara Uchiha of yugioh?
>>
>>152514216
Manga Bakura did it before during his DEATH duel
>>
>>152518706
Wow nice catch, he definitely did
>>
>>152509536
its because these are scans of the english volumes with some editing done by the scanner

its why later on you see bakura dropping fucks despite the scans being in english
>>
>>152518706
Damn, that foreshadowing.

Reading all of the manga in such a short span like this really makes me realize just how much forethought Kaz put into everything. Like, so many things are referenced many volumes later.

Great continuity, I love it.

So Bakura is just instinctevely drawn to get the eye, anyway fuck him for killing Pegasus.
>>
>>152522956
he played the Deja Vu spell card, when Atem/Yugi stopped the Destiny Board combo, to return all cards back to the field (but not all spent cards back to the hand)
>>
>>152509204
>>152509259
This really makes it seems Bakura is a victim.
>>
>>152509525
Anzu is sleeping on Yugi and he still can't get some.
>>
>>152523514

He really is never outright corrupt. I'd argue over the entire series he was overall more morally upright than the likes of kaiba who just gets a bye because he's tsun for atem.
Even rereading the series, modern day bakura seems like a decent person whose only real crime is killing Pegasus (a guy that trapped people in cards and kidnapped children)

So you can attack directly at Bakura and you just now try it?

Yami hasn't desired to kill someone this much in the whole series.

I don't claim to know how ancient egiptian magic bulshit works. But wouldn't Ra's sun powers make te darkness dissapear or something?
It's not like there hasn't been more bullshit moments before.
>>
>>152513294
Kinda looks like an older Pegasus.
>>
>>152509957
These battles actually top the duels for me in my opinion. It'd be great if there was an entire manga with this kind of battles.
>>
>>152524098
>He really is never outright corrupt.
He murders innocents just to win a battle.
>>
>>152511355

What's interesting is that memory-Atem is weaker than the actual Atem. He's effectively half his actual level, because he was alive back then - Now, half his potential is in Yugi.
>>
>>152513486
>Diabound can walk away from blows from Obelisk and Slifer
>Ra OHKO's it
How much stronger is Ra than Slifer and Obelisk?
>>
>>152511947
Special.
>>
>>152527741

He's killing innocents who happen to live in a town that slaughtered his. If he was the MC of another manga he'd be the protagonist fighting the evil and corrupt power
>>
>>152528678

Slifer and obelisk could beat him tbf but ra is on another tier of hax
>>
>>152515270
The true course of events is actually the Pharaoh sealing himself and Zorc into the millenium items. Seto's rebellion must have probably happened before he teamed up with him here and was scrapped by Kaz due to his health issues.
>>
>>152510419
That's because the original manga actually focused on telling a story before anything else. The anime, especially the newer spinoffs tend to focus on making themselves look like children's card game commercials before anything else. Notice the tons of duelists constantly debuting new monsters in every episode and when they shill a new boss monster it's all super flashy. Not to say they don't have a "story" but there's just a huge lack of planning and proper storytelling to make the newer anime feel like it's on the same level as the manga. Really the only time the anime was able to match the same tone and storytelling of the manga, while retaining the card game aspect was early 5Ds because they had a good writer who understood toyetic shonen and the ygo aesthetic. But after the writer switched it went downhill per the usual for ygo anime.
>>
>>152529450
Ya 5D's was legit in the first 50-60 eps, after that it went downhill fast.
>>
>>152528959
That's bullshit. He'd be a monster no matter what. People living there have nothing to do with what the rulers did. He knows this, he's not attacking them out of hatred, he knows they're innocent and attacking them because he knows the Pharoah is selfless. Fuck outta here with that talk
>>
>>152529203
Yeah but as Bakura says, he was also supposed to lose here.
>>
>>152529502
Yeah I stopped watching around that number. I remember when the Prism dude on YT would sub them asap
>>
>>152529577
Yes, but would that finish off his ba while his priests are present to protect him? Seeing Zorc's flashback, Obelisk is fighing his army, which implies Atem recovered after his defeat and prepared for the final battle.
>>
>>152529450
GX had the story issue the worst. The first 2 seasons felt like the filler episodes of the original anime with a main plot sidelined until the end of the arc. It got better once the plot was actually important and Judai had character development. The last season was really good seeing him get his enthusiasm for dueling back.
>>
>>152529547
Theres also the Ring's influence, it didn't have an influence on Mahad because he has a good heart, but Bakura lived his entire life desiring vengeance.
>>
>>152529547

Few things here
- They turned his village into jewellery
- He isn't actively killing innocents but using it as a tactic in a war (perfectly viable tactic too considering how strong the gods are)
- He's constantly going on about avenging his people
- These 'innocents' aren't revolting against royalty that goes out and kills them (such as Seto earlier)
- He literally went into a bar and overpaid for some shit and only killed a bunch of thieves

I don't think anything bakuras has done so far in this arc can be judged as morally evil or edgy considering he's probably the lesser of two evils in a war at this point
>>
>>152523075
Blue Eyes Ultimate Dragon.
>>
>>152524098
He has a legitimate reason to be upset, but he's most certainly not a good guy.

Also, Yami Bakura turned a bunch of people into RPG pieces and tried to kill them along with his host.
>>
>>152530646

I'd argue thief bakura is the good guy of this arc
>>
>>152529797
Oh man, I remember watching GX for the first time and just being bored as hell until the Shadow Riders showed up.

And even then, most of those guys barely did anything other than lose to Jaden.
>>
>>152530463
Having "Revive Zorc Necrophades, God of EVIL for shits, giggles, and profit" as an end goal sort of negates any question or not whether he's a monster, it just raises the question of whether he's a practical monster or Marik.
>>
>>152509536
I wish they stuck to Osiris. It'd be much more consistent to the theme naming.

>Wing Dragon of Ra
>Sky Dragon of Osiris
>>
>>152531831
I want to know why they went for Obelisk for a god's name.
I mean Isis name was used for a human woman but there are more egiptian gods.
Unless there is an unknown/no-name god described in an obelisk.
>>
>>152529797
How much better off do you think the later Yugioh anime series would have been if their mangas came out before the anime?
>>
>>152533254
Well, the Egyptians did believe that Ra lived inside within obelisks, so that could be it.
>>
>>152533959
Their manga was pretty crap, too.
>Tragoedia and Ma'at are donut steels, most of the Planet users do jackshit
>The tournament and rituals were pointless, Rex gets the dragons anyway
>Faker dies offscreen, spider-guy had no cohesive theme, final boss is just Don Thousand with boobs
>>
>>152534306
That's because for the sequels, the anime came first. Hence why the other guy ask if it'll be better if it was designed as a manga first.
>>
>>152534392
How would that change anything?
>>
>>152534462
At least it would have a cohesive story each time.
>>
>>152534306
>talking shit about the GX manga's ending

but why
>>
>>152534462
It changes a lot of thing due to the difference in the medium and creative process. Manga adaptions of anime tend to have either lesser creative control or that they tend to be like a 'summarised version' of the anime and basically be stripped off all the interesting bits here and there, i.e. bareboned. Obviously there are exceptions, but broadly speaking, when it comes to manga based off anime, they tend to be weaker.

With the standard manga first situation, you have a stronger focus since it's one author planning the stuff, whereas the anime can sometimes be messy when you have different writers coming and leaving.
>>
>>152535066
Yugioh is actually one of the exceptions. While there are a few commonalities, with exception to the Duel Monsters series, they are completely different stories. Often, people run completely different decks to their Anime counterparts (ex. Crystal Beasts guy in the GX anime. In the manga, he didn't have a single one of them, instead having a deck based around insects.)
>>
>>152535185
No, you're missing the bigger point. The manga still has to follow the basis set by the anime. Different card usage doesn't mean much when they still have to adhere to whatever is the trendy stuff like xyz/sychncro etc. The manga has to work with play styles and cards that are already established.

Finally, the manga still suffers the same issue of being compressed, i.e. a summarised version of the anime. They are short, don't bother with characters and are all about jumping straight to the next major duel in order to show off the new fancy cards.

YGO isn't an exception at all, it isn't all that different from other franchises that got a manga adapting from the anime.
