New ‘Yu-Gi-Oh!’ Series to Start This April!

Yu-Gi-Oh! gets first late-night broadcast; DM Battle City arc to begin in April; Arc-V event also to be held at AnimeJapan

New information has been revealed for Yu-Gi-Oh!, which in 2016 will usher in its 20th anniversary since serialization of the original manga began.

First up, the broadcast of the TV anime Yu-Gi-Oh! DM Battle City Arc will begin on April 15. A special stage event for the currently broadcasting Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V will also be held at AnimeJapan 2015.

The TV anime Yu-Gi-Oh! DM Battle City Arc will be the first Yu-Gi-Oh! anime to broadcast late night. More information on the series’ 20th anniversary and this re-edited version of the Battle City arc––one of the most popular arcs in the series––airing during this time slot will be announced in the coming days.

The anime broadcast will kick off on TV Tokyo on April 7, with subsequent broadcasts on TV Aichi, TV Setouchi, TV Hokkaido, TV Osaka, and TVQ Kyushu Broadcasting, meaning fans all over Japan will be able to enjoy it.

In other news, a special stage event for Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V will be held at Tokyo Big Sight during AnimeJapan 2015. The event will be at the ADK booth in the main area of the venue. Members of the voice cast from the series including Kensho Ono (voice of Yuuya Sakaki), Shinpei Takagi (Yugo), Manpei Takagi (Yuto), and Yamato Kinjo (Shun Kurosaki) will make appearances at the ADK booth on March 22. The event will likely become an unmissable talk with the cast of this newest anime for the series. The stage performance time, how to watch it, and other details will be announced in the coming days on the anime’s official site and Twitter.

Yu-Gi-Oh! began as a manga serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump (published by Shueisha) from 1996 to 2004. In 2000, the currently airing TV anime series Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters began airing. The newest anime in the series, Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V, began airing in April 2014. It has been confirmed that an all-new feature-length animation Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie will be released Japan-wide in 2016, the series’ 20th anniversary year. Don’t miss further developments.
