About the Author

Artist/author Kazuki Takahashi first tried to break into the manga business in 1982, but success eluded him until Yu-Gi-Oh! debuted in the Japanese Weekly Shonen Jump magazine in 1996. Yu-Gi-Oh!'s themes of friendship and fighting, together with Takahashi's weird and imaginative monsters, soon became enormously successful, spawning a real-world card game, video games, and three anime series (two Japanese Yu-Gi-Oh! series and Yu-Gi-Oh! GX). A lifelong gamer, Takahashi enjoys Shogi (Japanese chess), Mahjong, card games, and tabletop RPGs, among other games.

I really enjoyed the novel and I am looking forward to eventually purchase all of them. I am autistic and I enjoy watching all the Yu-Gi-Oh shows. But I need to read also, so this was a great way for me to understand what was going on on the story and be able to read along with looking at the graphics. Graphics are a great way of reaching teens who struggle with reading.

Format: Paperback
In 1996, Kazuki Takahashi would create a manga series about card games known as “Yu-Gi-Oh!”. Wanting to create a battle manga that was unique and not about fighting and a fan of tabletop role-playing games, Takahashi did not imagine how popular the series would be among fans worldwide.

With the original manga serialized in Sept. 1996 through 2004, the games have been popular among anime, manga and of course, the card gaming fans in America and also around the world. The series would spawn off various series (featuring manga adaptations by other artists/writers) such as “Yu-Gi-Oh! GX” (2005-2011), “Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s” (2008-2011) and most recently with “Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal” (2011-2012).

And now “Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal” is now released in America courtesy of Viz Media.

What is “Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal”?

“Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal” continues the card battling theme that the original series was most popular for. First featured in 2010 and then later serialized on “V Jump” magazine in 2011, the fourth “Yu-Gi-Oh!” series has received an anime adaptation and is currently airing in America on the Cartoon Network’s Saturday morning cartoon block, Toonzai, Vortexx and now on Nicktoons.

The series is set in the near future in a place called “Heartland City” and features a teenager named Yuma Tsukumo who wants to become the next “Duel Monsters” champion, but he has a while to go as he is only an amateur.

In vol. 1, we learn that Yuma is being raised by his older sister who does not like him participating in duels. His prized possession is this necklace that his parents gave him that resembles a key. Yuma’s parents are adventurers and during a trip, they were never heard from again.

Futuristic dueling technology, more amazing ways to summon monsters, and new supernatural crises - that's Yu-Gi-Oh! for you!

Yuma Tsukumo loves dueling more than anyone else, but he has almost no skills. Every time Yuma duels his friends, he loses, and every time he tries to excel in Phys Ed, he makes a clown of himself. He never stops trying to "jet," though. Very admirable, I know.

Some time ago, Yuma's parents disappeared after leaving him a strange, almost otherworldly key. Recently, Yuma has been having dreams about a door that challenges him to use his key to open it. Naturally, he is hesitant - I mean, if a voice from an ominous-looking door was challenging you, would you listen to it?

One day, however, the most notorious duelist bully in school, Ryoga, also known as Shark, oversteps dueling boundaries by betting on a duel with one of Yuma's friends and takes his deck as a result. Just like the usual Yu-Gi-Oh! protagonist, Yuma steps up to challenge the bully. He may be the worst duelist is school, but Yuma is not afraid when there is a deck, the soul of a duelist, at stake. Midway into the duel, Yuma is doing terribly, but suddenly, he has a vision of the ominous door again and decides to accept the door's challenge, opening it. In doing so, he opens the door to another dimension and releases the mysterious, spectral being known as Astral, who becomes attached to Yuma, shadowing him constantly. Like Yuma, Astral is a duelist, but he's a little arrogant, and gets on Yuma's nerves much of the time. Plus, Yuma is the only person who can see Astral, making his duels a little...awkward.

I used this book when working in a reading clinic with a third grade student. He loved the comic strips and the story line. I loved the fact that he was making connections and enjoying reading. This book is great for motivating a Yu-Gi-Oh! lover to read, but I would not say that it is the most effective book to teach the skill of reading.

This book is excellent! The story and the drawings are amazing! It didn't come with the card but I don't care the only thing I wanted was the book!

If you like Yu-Gi-Oh then this is DEFINITELY the book for you!

But the tv show is different from the book but, it's still awesome!

I'm feeling the flow!
