This is for the first 7 volumes. I enjoyed these a lot more then the rest of the Yu-Gi-Oh series.

It focuses a lot more on the characters and not just "The Heart of the cards" in fact it barely mentions duel monsters at all. Which I think makes it a lot more enjoyable that i'm not reading a card battle every chapter.

The volumes past 7 really goes into the duel monsters cards and doesn't really have an interesting story like the first 7 volumes.

I would recommend this to those who have seen the rest of the Yu-Gi-Oh series. It shows the original version of the read more

I finally finished reading this masterpiece... All I must say is this manga is not just a must-read or must-rate, but a MUST-FAVORITE! You can't run into another masterpiece like this in many decades. This one surpasses all other manga series in my fav-list, even though its anime adaptions are not so great.

Story: 8/10
-The only thing it lacks is ROMANCE. This was a pain at first for me but I quickly forgot that, being completely enthralled by the duels. Also, there are times when the motives behind the duels were not so reasonable and convincing. Nevertheless, the author did a great great job.

Replace the game of Go with a Card Game and it's almost the same. Both Characters have someone else within them helping them play a certain game, both of which found these spirits within an old relic of some type. The Stories are different but the set up is very similar.

Both of these manga series are about a trading card game, but with the game's fluid rules the focus of each match isn't strategy as much as creativity. But ultimately, the focus isn't the game itself, but enjoying it and discovering oneself through it -- Yu-gi-oh! in a standard shounen way; King of Cards in a standard shoujo way.
