Synopsis

Tenth grader Yuugi spent most of his time alone playing games—until he solved the Millennium Puzzle, a mysterious Egyptian artifact! Possessed by the puzzle, Yuugi becomes Yu-Gi-Oh, the King of Games, and challenges evil-doers to the Shadow Games—weird games with high stakes and high risks! These graphic novels contain new stories not seen in the anime, including the origin of Yuugi and his friends!

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.

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

Yu-Gi-Oh, it is actually not a really good manga, but the innovation inside it which makes the manga interesting.

Before Yu-Gi-Oh appeared, trading card game is not so popular, then, the appearance of Yu-Gi-Oh makes the trading card game popular.
However, the comics is not as awesome as the game nowadays. The game still expanding faster and faster, yet the comics is so lame.

So, my suggestion is, if you like the Yu-Gi-Oh trading card game or you want to at least know how to do the game, you can read the book

I was very shocked about this manga.
I've never been a fan of the Yu-Gi-Oh! show with it's card battling EVERY SINGLE EPISODE, very repeative, so of course when my father bought me 4 of it's manga I was like, "Oh GOD, how will I survive this? Watching it is bad enough...". The manga, unlike it's anime, does NOT have to do with card playing at all times and is actually fun to read! It's more focused on developing it's characters, which makes you love the story overall. I still am cringing though, waiting for it to becoming like the anime and ruining its goodness.

So I read more
