    Default 2016 Yu-Gi-Oh! Movie Discussion

    I figured we would talk about the upcoming Yu-Gi-Oh! movie here instead of the Arc-V thread. Here's the trailer:

    I'm looking forward to this movie. I'm kinda hoping the original dub voice actors come back for this movie, but I'm alright with them using different voices instead.

    Oh Yu-Gi-Oh.... collecting all the best cards back in elementary school and dueling my friends for bets and what not. Golden moments of my life :P This movie will surely bring back some amazing memories if it's well executed. If there is one thing that Yu-Gi-Oh did over Pokémon it's the story of the anime (and obviously the trading cards). I remember being hyped for the next episode!


    This movie better take place during the classic cards area!

    It takes place six months after the end of the original series (so still nine and a half years before GX, for all timeline matters to Yu-Gi-Oh!), but whether or not it remains true to what cards were available back then remains to be seen.

    With that said, at the very least it is incorporating some tech from future seasons (D-Gazer).

    Do we know why Yugi still has the Millennium Puzzle?

    So this actually looks good.

    I haven't watched since GX as a kid (and the BBT Movie), but i'll definetly check this out. Any idea when it's set?

    So this is a continuation of the anime since they past the other Arc's? In that case, we will see a mix up of classic/new cards. By new cards I meant the ones from Battle City Arc. I'm curious how a movie will explain an entire Arc though. My hunch is that if this is successful, they'll perhaps re-make the anime or continue from there.

    Not that I'm aware of.

    For that matter, do we know if Yugi has it? He doesn't have it in the trailer or the character sketches, and while it's a bit hard to tell he doesn't seem to have it in the movie poster either.

    I hope they have duels that are actually understandable.

    I lost all interest in this the moment I found out it was just the first series. Yugi...Well Atem and them were fun, but they had their time. Just like with Digimon Tri; I'd much rather see them focus on the new stuff than going back to the old.

    As opposed to... what? When have duels ever been difficult to follow?

    So the manga and the TV show both ended the same, right? With the Ceremonial Battle and Yugi and co. returning back to Japan? So this film is six months after the events of the show?
    "It eluded us then, but that’s no matter—tomorrow we will run faster, stretch out our arms farther...And then one fine morning -
    So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past."


    Thank you FairyWitch for the banner!

    I found the previous film's duel to be quite messy in terms of writing, so I'm hoping that this film's duel is more cohesive at the very least.

    Since 5D's ended. So it's basically too far gone.

    That is correct.

    Are we talking about the writing of the duels, or the cards used? If we're talking about the former, 5Ds tended to be more complex than Zexal or Arc-V (so far). If the latter, again, it's no worse than 5Ds with there being new cards to know the ins and outs of.

    I'm just relatively at a loss as to what it is even remotely difficult to follow about Yu-Gi-Oh! of all things. Even when cards get long-winded, they do a good job of showing the process of what happened and why.

    I'm still bugged by the fact that they're wearing some sort of D-Gazer, but minus the glass. What was the point?

    I might actually watch this movie. The duel was too short for me in Bonds Beyond Time. So hopefully there will be a quality duel this time around. No Judai though so I'm disappointed. I tried to rewatch the original series some time ago, and man did it suck. The duels made no sense whatsoever and the effects didn't match the actual effects of the cards. It was bad. Thank science that Battle City fixed most of that.

    This looks pretty nice. I think I'll find some time to watch it.

    He lucksacks too much anyway, so good riddance imo. Not that Yugi's much better since his deck is a mess, but at least he's a charismatic character.

    Judai is one of the few main characters that never cheats. He usually has the cards he needs in hand and will set up plays turns in advance. His play with Winged Kuriboh wasn't luck, that was Jun's fault for being stupid and arrogant.

    I finished watching season 1 and 2 of GX (dub) and I found myself really enjoying Jaden as a protagonist.

    As for the movie, I'm excited to see how it goes.

    He never cheat, exactly because his luck is too darn high. Why bother cheating when your beyond godlike luck means you always begin with all the cards you need?


    Shun in Arc-V is becoming like him with how he always begin with 3 copies of Lanius and all the necessary Spells to spam them xD
