Monsters - Yu-Gi-Oh! - Netflix
Yu-Gi-Oh! (遊☆戯☆王, Yū-Gi-Ō!, lit. “Game King”) is a Japanese manga series about gaming written and illustrated by Kazuki Takahashi. It was serialized in Shueisha's Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine between September 30, 1996 and March 8, 2004. The plot follows the story of a boy named Yugi Mutou, who solves the ancient Millennium Puzzle. Yugi awakens a gambling alter-ego within his body that solves his conflicts using various games. Two anime adaptations were produced; one by Toei Animation, which aired from April 4, 1998 to October 10, 1998, and another produced by NAS and animated by Studio Gallop titled Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters, which aired between April 2000 and September 2004. The manga series has spawned a franchise that includes multiple spin-off manga and anime series, a trading card game, and numerous video games. Most of the incarnations of the franchise involve the fictional trading card game known as Duel Monsters, where each player uses cards to “duel” each other in a mock battle of fantasy “monsters”. This forms the basis for the real life Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game.
Monsters - Significance of Duel Monsters - Netflix
The early chapters of Yu-Gi-Oh! feature a variety of different games; but from chapter 60 (volume 7) onwards, the most common game that appeared as a plot device was the Duel Monsters card game (formerly known as Magic & Wizards) through the Duelist Kingdom and Battle City tournament arcs; receiving elevated plot relevance in the latter arc. Other games still appear during the DDD and Memory World portions of the manga and gaming in general is often referred to; the modern card game being a recent fad in Japan imported from the United States within the original story. However, NAS/Studio Gallop's Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters anime promotes Duel Monsters as the story's main premise as well as in filler, shifting its universe to a more Duel Monsters-centric universe. Duel Monsters is played using a holographic image system created by Seto Kaiba (following his first Shadow Game match with Yugi). In the manga and Toei Animation's Yu-Gi-Oh! anime, these were initially performed on tables called Duel Boxes, using holographic tubes, while Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters uses huge holographic fields called Duel Rings. Starting with the Battle City arc (in both versions), duels are performed using portable Duel Disks, invented by Seto Kaiba, President of KaibaCorp, using Solid Vision technology, which allows Shadow Game-esque games of Duel Monsters to happen anywhere.
