Are you soft in the head? Niche doesn't automatically equate to not being successful. Harem shows are niche if you zoom out far enogh, but enough of them sell.

A big indicator of a piece of media's future success (not wild success, but successful enough) is NOT the overall % of a test audience thinks it's alright/good. The estimation of success is there being a sizeable section of the audience who likes it a lot, even if the rest didn't like it or even hated it. The larger number of fanatics and the more obsessive they are, the better.

SAO is already a rip-off of .hack
>>
>>156957526
.hack is also shit. Except for the OPs, and that one 3-episode OVA.
>>
>>156957438
Yu-Gi-Oh! isn't niche on the whole, though. It's the most successful card game on the planet and has a sizable player-base in Japan, which is why it keeps getting made. I don't know anything about the TV ratings, though, which is really the best measure of how niche the specific show is.
>>
>>156957704
The very few numbers known of Arc-V's tv ratings is abysmally low. <1.0 kind of low. Comparatively, Zexal hovered around the low-mid 2.0 range.

Where do you live that Yugioh isn't a niche interest compared to something like competitive sports or marvel movies? I'd like to visit and see it for myself.

Even here on /a/, compare the IP count of Arc-V threads of the past year to the most popular seasonal shows, like the German military loli and Re:Zero.

>>156957821
Also, even Zexal's numbers were pretty small compared to the regulars on TV Tokyo's top 10 ratings lists, like Detective Conan and Doraemon. Even in the dying age of television, Sazae-san pulls in double digits in tv ratings.
>>
>>156958065
Those three always top. One Piece, Precure, Pokemon, DBS, and Ghost Watch are usually on the list, too. YGO doesn't get tops.
>>
>>156958128
I think I vaguely remember one single instance that Zexal made the list (last place in the list at #10), but I'm not sure. That might have been GX, instead.
>>
>>156958224
I think the ratings for YGO in Japan were DM > ZEXAL > GX > 5Ds > Arc-V, so you're probably thinking of ZEXAL. The Japs LOVE that Super Saiyan shit.
>>
>>156957704
Is your frame of reference so fucking poor that you can't even recognize that card games in their entirety (along with whatever else /tg/ would talk about) are a niche interest? It's not like Yugioh Zexal on Netflix would be watched at the same rate as the most popular live-action shows available on there.

>>156958331
Nope, GX had higher ratings than Zexal. It's only natural since TV ratings have been on an overall decline the past decade and longer.
>>
It's already time for VRAINS isn't it?
So how much of a mess is the whole sub situation going to be?
It's always such a mess with YGO.
>>
>>156959750
there's always gx_st, but they are pretty fucking slow, or just read a script and use the raw
>>
>>156959854
>or just read a script and use the raw
No that's terrible.
>>
>>156959750
GX_ST is doing it like always, Mono said he'd do it back in December but I dunno if that's still the case. DMC will probably still do scripts at the very least.
>>
>>156959750
Hopefully Mono is doing it.
>>
>>156959900
I always planned to watch all of arc-v before watching vrains. But then mono fell behind.
And while I knew that there were alternative subtitles, I am not that big of a fan of changing subtitles in the middle of a show. Especially not over 100 episodes in.
But then every time I was finally about to give in and actually go for other subs, mono actually released a new batch of subs. And thus I kept waiting.

But now vrains is already starting and I haven't even seen arc-v.
>>

You say that like it's a bad thing.

>>156967792
For whatever reason it felt like they lightened the shadow colors somewhat in the middle of Arc-V. Maybe I'm just imagining things, but the colors and shadows overall feel like they have less punch as they did back in 5D's and Zexal (and early Arc-V?), for whatever reason.
>>
>>156969256
Look at all the episodes that take place at dusk during Arc-V.

They're all shaded nicely.
>>
>>156969280
Dusk scenes aren't the majority of the show, though. Yugioh's usual style is/was more graphic and high contrast, even in normal daylight.
>>
>>156967792
Den City so far looks even more boring than synchro arc's City, which by itself was a watered down version of Neo Domino

Episode 2: 風を掴め!Storm Access – Kaze o Tsukame! Sutōmu Akusesu
(Catch the Wind! Storm Access)
Yusaku managed to capture the mysterious lifeform that the Knights of Hanoi were chasing after. In order to defeat them, he logs into LINK VRAINS as Playmaker. He commenced a Duel while holding the lifeform hostage. However, the lifeform predicted that “Yusaku can’t win with his deck,” and generated a “Data Storm” in LINK VRAINS. Playmaker then experiences a new type of Dueling he’s never seen before: Speed Duel.

I'm sure Yusaku has dueled several times in the past but never tried speed dueling. After all, Shoichi did say "you'd still be able to have fun with dueling" or some shit like that.
>>
>>156977119
Of course he does, how much you wanna bet that Link monsters are a speed duel thing and Yusaku has never had Link monsters until after the AI modified his deck, it's Yuma and Yuya all over again., in fact it's even worse because Yusaku can't fight very good unless the rules will be in his favor, case in point, speed duels just like Yuya can't win without an action duel. I can't believe this shit, this means that the last protagonist to actually be good enough to fight the real way without any stupid ass gimmicks would be Yuma.

Let's wait and see. The MC tends to win, that's fine. So long as it isn't ACTION CARDO

Advertising is all about trying to hook in its target audience from the start with everything it can muster. It's kinda hard to do that with kids these days if your characters move like wooden boards and are just barely drawn passably enough. DBS has the DB name and iconic characters to coast on to make up for everything else.

I mean, so far Yoshida's track record like 3 out of 5 times is getting a plot to the end at a 'just ok' enough level. Pretty predictable with some filler (but every Yugioh deals with filler), but the basic pieces are more or less there, even if they're unexciting.

*relies on unethical dirty tricks*

Also to add to the list, he's purely Egyptian and has all the time in the word to decrypt Ra's text, yet he never knows about the two other special abilities it has, which Kaiba even figured out from a night of research.

Tomorrow Duel Links is getting a Yugioh Vrains Playmat and Sleeve in celebration for the premiere of the new Anime. How cool is that?
>>

That's kinda cool, never really got too into Duel Links though because I'm not a huge fan of how dumbed down the duels are.
>>
>>156994155
>dumbed down the duels are
it isn't really, Yugioh is Yugioh and it plays the same at least for me. I don't think Speed duel is easier. Its all the same.
>>
>>156991689
Arc-V looked extra shit in animation, even for a Yugioh. There's something fucked when even the stills and headshots, where the only animation is mouth flapping, looks bad half the time.
>>
>>156994155
duel links is basically if konami replaced advanced with goat format
don't hop on the bandwagon and try the game for yourself. it's not that bad, and you'll find the lack of special summon spam, and needing to go first or play around 9001 trap/quick negate effects is refreshing
It's basically Smogon's NU tier, but for Yu-Gi-Oh. All the broken extra deck shit from 2008- onwards doesn't exist
>>
>>156994066
Pretty cool actually.
>>
>>156994155
I don't realy like how there are barely any NPC in the game and the use of Speed Duels too. But sadly, Duel Links will probably become the last Yugioh game we'll get in a loooong time. So i guess its a take what you can situation for me

Yugioh tv anime's real bread and butter are the characters. Did people go watch DSOD because of the Plana plot? Fuck no, it was Kaiba, Yugi, and Jonouchi to some extent.

The story is just there to exhibit what a character will do and how they'll adapt under certain circumstances. It's important, but it always gets retarded in a Yugioh anime anyway, sometimes obscenely so.
>>
>>156998459
DSOD was so fucking bad apart from the art/animation

>>
>>156998459
>>156998084
>>156998088
ARC-V was shit but the only reason i kept watching was because of the nostalgia. All i'am saying is that Yugioh is the Anime franchise that have aged better than Pokemon, Bayblade and Digimon. Not neccesarily good but not super bad either
>>
>>156998579
The Plana story did felt forced but at least it filled some plotholes and it made sense that only now that power would appear since a requirement for its use was the death of Atem.
>>
>>156998580
>aged better
Funny, even with the one shitstorm XY caused and the very lukewarm quality of Tri and Aplimon (being forgiving), I'm pretty sure neither achieved Arc-V's level of infamy in proportion to the size of the viewerbase. Where the shittiness of a show's downfall is forever etched in an entire nico article made by somewhat obsessive nips.

Don't know about Beyblade, but that's never been quite as relevant as Pokemon or Digimon.
>>
>>156998792
>Where the shittiness of a show's downfall is forever etched in an entire nico article made by somewhat obsessive nips.

link?
>>
>>156990114
This single image captures like 60% of the things wrong with Arc-V's art direction.

It wasn't /that/ bad and Vrains could actually be even more of a fuckup in that department, but it was so washed over with blandness a lot of the time.
>>
>>156998792
That's right, the reason ARC-V got so much understandable hate its because unlike the other series, the fanbase still expected something decent in quiality. Where for example Pokemon its known by everyone to be a Doraemon tier show so it doesn't have expectations

The nip yugioh anime fans are really, really easy to please, though. All they want is a few regurgitated shounen tropes and Yugioh staples seen through to the end for the nth time, and they'll throw out the 1s and call it the new Yugioh Masterpiece.
>>
>>156998028
If you want to watch because the story, I would recommend you anything other than children's anime. Seriously, this is basically a commercial ad for a trading card game.

>>156999285
>I would recommend you anything other than children's anime. Seriously, this is basically a commercial ad for a trading card game.
Yeah i know that, it't just that Yugioh didn't started as a toy commercial
>>
>>156999207
Nips have terrible taste in anime, though. That is well known.
>>
>>156999303
Maybe that's why he never did another long running manga again. DM manga's production was just too traumatizing
>>
>>156999287
Yuya and Yuto should of switched places during the Xyz Arc. That would have made it a lot more enjoyable.
>>
>>156999336
We're talking specifically about children's anime anon, not the real anime outside of kids' anime where they're competing fiercely against each other to convince viewers to buy their expensive bluray discs and merch. Bad taste in here is already an automatic assumption.

I don't see how that goes against the fact that Yugioh viewers in japan are easily pleased.
>>
>>156999338
I don't really want him managing NAS. That shit would cause him to neck himself.

The japs were utter assholes during the final arc. Kaz should have took a break. I'm starting to think the SJ editors fucked with Kaz and Togashi to burn them out so badly.

Well that, or Togashi was faking Kaz's symptoms.
>>
>>156999338
Its still weird tho, he tried a lot of time to make a Manga and after finally succeding, he stops. I thought as an artist who loves to draw, he would try to make a new manga, I know i would
>>
>>156999510
Kubo once upon a time had real passion for making manga, and look at what the mangaka SJ life did to his soul.
>>
>>156999545
Kubo needed a co-author. Instead, he got SJ editors.
>>
>>156999510
He made one one-shot named Drump. I also think he doesn't draws manga anymore because he'll never surpass Yu-Gi-Oh!
>>
>>156999671
How do you know he never could? Togashi made a hit with Yu Yu Hakusho and went on to make another with HxH that arguably spread out to an even wider audience, even if he can't be assed to draw for it more than once a year.

Kaz is probably one of the more tech savvy out of the total pool of shounen jump artists and seems capable of some kind of monthly publication, but was never interested for whatever personal reason.
>>
>>156999671
>>156999805
>>156999545
>I also think he doesn't draws manga anymore because he'll never surpass Yu-Gi-Oh!
If tahst the case than tahts a shitty reason to stop drawing. Toryama kept on doing Manga after Dragin Ball (Not anymore but whatever) and now Kishimoto is making a new manga, he even said he doesn't care if it doesn't become as popular as Naruto. If Kaz stopped because of his health then that i can understand
>>
>>156999805
I'm betting the fanbase reaction final arc of YuGiOh soured him on making manga. I don't remember if he got any hatemail, but the ratings took a large dip without card games. That and his ulcer caused it to end early.
>>
>>156999845
Maybe he just prefers single illustrations a lot more than sequential comics stuff now, who knows. The most (published) work he's done by volume is illustrations/paintings for stuff like special anniversary Yugioh cards and whatever he puts up on his instagram.
>>
>>156999955
>The most (published) work he's done by volume
*after DM finished, of course
>>
>>156999845

>>
>>156942447
Man I miss the twins.
>>
>>157000085
Well, he doesn't have to, hypothetically. Togashi and Miura certainly go at their own pace. It doesn't even have to be through an official publisher since I doubt Kaz needs the money.

I actually liked the plana stuff. It added a nice philosophical level to YGO and made the story a lot more complex. It reminded me a lot of Evangelion and the concept of Instrumentality. It also added more depth to the lore by tying back to Shadi, just further amplifying the mystery of who the man really is.

Maybe NAS thinks being eternally ongoing is the only way to maintain the anime's presence and keep it from being forgotten entirely in the fast-paced pool of anime, to make up for its lackluster relative quality.
>>
>>157003683
Well no. I just wanted to see the original series characters again. The plana stuff was a bonus for me.

Because the anime is a commercial to sell cards. You constantly need to be shilling. Card sets will go down in revenue if there's no anime to promote every set.
>>
>>157003866
>Card sets will go down in revenue if there's no anime to promote every set.
How do they know that when the anime's never taken longer than a 2 week break (until recently with 1 month) since it came on air?
>>
>>157003866
Maybe it's because I'm updated about the meta and half the archetypes promote themselves , just watch the anime to get a brief taste of new cards. Almost all decent players now have their buys planned for the new format with Links and we are just waiting for the actual sets. Many already broken the game with new Firewall dragon and didn't need any promo or anime.
>>
>>157004017
Because in Japan, the anime is considered a vital part of advertising
>>
>>157004221
So you're just speculating out of your ass? Obviously they SEE it as important, but they wouldn't have any numbers (and neither would you or anyone else outside Konami/NAS) since it's never happened that the anime was absent from tv for as long as one or more seasons.

You gotta understand that the dick size memes are really just memes. Unless a normal girl has repeated experience with a large object, she can really only comfortably handle the average dick size of her genetic heritage. Asians do tend to be on the lower end of average, and since everyone in porn outside of fetish shit is at least 18cm, that's more than enough to make an Asian girl hurt a bit since that shit is stabbing her cervix.

Good, hopefully this means less trash stinking up the packs and with all these collections we'll finally be free of ,gx,5ds, zexal and arc-v backlogs. the less duels the better because it'll help Hobukubo have some breathing room

It slows the game in general, pendulums was never that broken.
>>
>>157006722

>>
>>157006722
Pendulums, much like Synchros, were badly designed, and needed constant jack off plays to be worth a damn. That's bad game design and we should thank Konami for killing it. Links may be cancer possibly but hopefully Konami wll wise up and remove allowing them to summon with tokens and making player super reliant on their extra deck rather than the main deck. No more ridiculous archetypes that search and swarm all the time. Make the main deck do what it's suppose to do again and let the extra just work like it used to, a den of big monsters that are cool but not the end all be all to victory.

>Arc-V's the black sheep of Yu-Gi-Oh!

>>157006846
Pendulums were not broken. You have shit like Igknights, Dinomist, Majespecter and Zefra that's not broken at fucking all.

The only broken pendulum archetypes were those that got 1-card pendulum scales and those that were decidedly botched in execution like Plushfire and Ariadne.

Morons like you should be thrown right into the trash.
Zexal wasn't stellar at times, I agree. But when it shined, it shined brightly. It's my favorite YGO spinoff and when I see people overreact like you and call it shit, I just can't help but laugh.
It's a good thing I don't treat anime duels even reomtely seriously too. I'm sure if I would be sperging like most people over the Zexal duels it wouldn't be my favorite. But then again, that's not even Yoshida's fault.
>>
>>157007148
I think I just realized which AD/outsource studio is doing this first episode. If I'm not totally wrong it'll have some QUALITY, but nothing too bad.
>>
>>157007483
I'm a fan of Zexal and the issue isn't that it wasn't stellar at times, its that the first half was mind numbingly boring save for a few cool bits with grating characters that are mostly dropped in the much better S2.

On top of that Zexal's worst moments are far worse then 5D's or GX's worst moments, even if its better moments, like Yuma and Alito's last duel or IV vs Nasch are probably a bit better then their best moments.

I don't particularly take anime duels "seriously" either, but I would like it if they were at least a little more thought out instead of just exactly same plays over and over again. Zexal is a decent series, the second season is good, but overall, its mediocre at best.

>>157007483
The only thing worth watching in Zexal was Shark. First part was complete trash and Yuma was a fucking authist that kept spamming Hopuu and inventing cards.
Also Fucking Kotori, what a waste of space and time.
Why not just make shark's sister into the love interest of main character then?

Part 2 Zexal was more descent but the filler was shit.

Kaz was involved in all of these in one way or another.

Arc-V was the first TV anime where Kaz did literally nothing.

A recent Chrome update removed the chrome://plugins directory entirely, and without warning, because the Chrome team is run by chimpanzees. It probably disabled your Flash player too, like it did mine. If you want to turn on Flash, goto Settings > Advanced Settings > Content Settings > Flash > "allow sites to run Flash"

>removed plugins
For what reason? And here I was thinking about switching to chrome from firefox

the old page let you manage all of chrome plugins
after the update, you only have access to a few
they probably don't want you messing with/turning off certain plugins
this recent update pissed off a lot of people, myself included
