What time is it? It’s Time to Duel of course! And it looks like Netflix is continuing its trend of adding classic old school shounen anime into its library. With One Piece coming soon and Yu Yu Hakusho already streaming, NX has now announced that they’re also adding the original Yu-Gi-Oh! TV anime!
According to NX, the anime will premiere on July 8, 2020. This Netflix release will only feature “Season 1” though, so expect more episodes to come in the future. The original series ran from 2000 to 2004, and had 224 episodes.
The Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters TV anime is based on Kazuki Takahashi’s original manga which ran on Weekly Shounen Jump magazine. It follows Yugi Mutoh, who finds and solves the Millennium Puzzle which allows an ancient pharaoh to possess him to play the Duel Monsters card battle game. Its Trading Card Game version by Konami is still going strong as well, and is still one of the most played TCGs in the world.
Now, it’s time to D-d-d-duel!
