Meet the Author

Original Yu-Gi-Oh! creator Kazuki Takahashi first tried to break into the manga business in 1982, but success eluded hiim 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 four anime series (two Japanese Yu-Gi-Oh! series, Yu-Gi-Oh! GX and Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's).

    Amazing!!!

    Even if you DIDN'T like the anime, you're 99.999% sure to LOVE this manga. It's just like the show--minus the card game (sometimes mentioned, played every once and awhile) the constant friendship speeches, and tons more violence! The storyline is excellent! Recommended!!

    Amazing

    This manga is awesome! It's way full of way cool unknown [shadow] games. This story shows what really happened before they became friends in the series. And how much Yugi's life sucked! (He's actually like a perv) BUT, be warned! A lot of this is material is for like 11+ but not for 9 year olds it is so violent. If you expect to see that same crap in the tv series you ain't going to get what you wished for. Yami Yugi or Dark Yugi(Whatever you want to call him) Is not so kind but caring for his friends. Some disturbing pictures but if you're 11 and up don't freak out it's just beat up by bullies pictures. P.S. I did not see any blood in this manga. YOU WILL LOVE IT!!!!

    I still like the manga even though I'm not into Yu-Gi-Oh anymore

    After reading volumes 6 and 7 of the original series, I decided to reread volumes 1-5, because it's been such a long time since I last read them, and I want to give them more accurate rating. On that note, I'm sorry to say that this has gone down from 4 to 3 stars, and I have a feeling this will be the same for the others. I like it, but I don't like it as much as I used to when I was total Yu-Gi-Oh! fan many years ago. But I have to say volume 1 is still a little disturbing. One game Dark Yugi plays involves stabbing money on top of his hand with a knife. Another is a form of ice hockey that's played with a puck filled with explosive chemicals. Yup, crazy stuff. The consequences for the losers of the games are still creepy too. For example, one guy is set on fire, and another is punished by being forced to listen to the beating of his own heart. I definitely wouldn't recommend this manga to young children. I would say from middle schoolers and up would be appropriate. As a Yu-Gi-Oh fan, I think the most interesting part is the art in this volume, because the characters look a little different, and Takahashi doesn't seemed to have a hang of his style yet. Yugi's bangs are curvy instead of zig-zaggy, and Dark Yugi looks especially crazy when he first appears. Honda, Jonouchi, and Anzu look different as well.

    Pretty Good, but NOT for Younger Fans

    These are the stories before the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime that explain the origins of Yugi and his friends. This is a pretty good manga, but parents of younger fans be warned, you probably want to check this book out before letting them buy it. Older fans go ahead because this manga is pretty good, but skim it before you buy it.

    Only for those YGO fans with open minds.

    A fabulous read. I only rated THIS particular book in the series 4 stars because I happen to like the Duelist arc more (and I THAT gets the 5 stars...). But it's an essential read if you wish to start this manga. But as the title of my review states, only the REAL and TRUE Yu-Gi-Oh! fans should even consider reading this. And by that, I mean those who are willing to accept the fact that the story line goes deeper than the dub's almost strictly card-based plot. Now don't get me wrong even though I'm rather 'fluent' in the ways of the original YGO, I still enjoy the dub. However, if you wish to continue only living in the 'defense mode' of the 4Kids show and if you wouldn't appreciate the actual storyline of the whole franchise, then I suggest not reading it. Degrading it with a 1 star rating (just because you discovered that 'Yami's' demeanor is especially cruel in the beginning) is quite insulting to those who have stuck to the TRUE meaning of the story that Takahashi had originally intended. And for the inquisitive yet thoughtful parent: just some light cussing in this, and a few comments with some (mostly) indirect innuendo, but nothing nasty for the mature teenager. Enjoy, kids!

    Yu-Gi-Oh! The fun beguns here.

    Ok I bought the book and was very excited about getting the manga. I really enjoyed this one. I did some research on this and turns out that this is based on the series that the evil empire 4Kids *shudders at the name 4Kids* never wanted to show because they thought that it was too violent for children. Ok come on, it should have been dubbed authentic by Viz I mean Viz did dub InuYasha. Anyway back to the book. I loved the book, heck I almost got caught sneaking the manga behind my textbooks during class. I mean yes the book was that good. I like what Jonrounchi and Honda where doing the pant tank on Anzu. I was laughing so hard. I'm glad I didn't read that part during school because I would have been caught for sure. I also liked the fact that Yami was pretty crazy. I mean he infact was playing the Darkness games pretty well that I wished that I was in his shoes. I would love to send somebody to the shadow relm. I would like to play darkness games with people. I'm jelous of you Yami, I wanna be you. Anyway because 4Kids is not releasing the series on dvd I had to get the orignal series on fansub. Me like the epesodes. I have all the manga for the first series and well because I'm not old enough to go shopping by myself or so say my parents, I have to get the pre-order for one of the newer series Enter the Millennium World and order some of the series online. But I need to play catch up on the duelist series. I love the manga series for Yu-Gi-Oh! but parents don't get this manga for your six year old child who thinks he knows everything about Yu-Gi-Oh! because he doesn't even know the half of it. I mean with 4Kids doing the series butcherd up, and not right at all even skipping a whole entire season. I love Yu-Gi-Oh! and this manga gets my highest rating.

    i love Yu-Gi-Oh!

    I am a all time yugioh lover. i was whatching the series when my friend called me. She was all excited and told me 'i just got the yugioh manga!' after she filled me in some i ended up buying the first 3 and i ordered Shonen Jump (a magazine that has a bunch of manga in one)i love the first 7 books because it shows how everything actually happened the way it was susposed to. the only thing i didn't like was at first it makes Yami seem evil, but who wouldn't be cranky after spending 3,000 years trapped in a puzzle with no memories. I say if you love Yu-Gi-Oh the show, buy this and see how it was ment to happen.

    The Best Yugioh Yet!!

    Hey so when I picked up this manga I thought it was just for little kids. However i was wrong!! This manga is exceptionally good! It is funny and very creative. This Manga is filled with excitememnt and fun 'games'. I definetly wouldnt advise someone under 11 to buy this. There are some adult themes, but otherwise this manga is swell. Even though this is my first manga i look forward to the next volumes!

    Yu-Gi-Oh, Vol. 1: The Millennium Puzzle

    I'm a big fan of the Yu-gi-oh series, but Volume 1 was truly sad. I mean,even someone who's never seen Yu-gi-oh could read Ch.1 and see how different the characters are than potrayed in the later manga and the Anime.

    Yu-Gi-Oh, Vol. 1: The Millennium Puzzle

    The first book of a fad that4th graders love, this book was a lot different than the seires. This actually happens before the tcg was introduced which was quite refreshing, and characters were a lot different than usually portrayed, and Yami was a lot crueler. But certain dialouge, and themes may not be appropriate for it's 8 year old fan kingdom. I like this a little better than the anime, but I would not buy the rest of the series.

    Better than the TV show

    I prefer the manga over the TV show. The manga stays true to the original intentions of the author. The characters really shine in how they deal with each crazy situation. Unlike 4Kids, VIZ keeps the original names and does not censor violence. Don't give this book to a little kid, but at the same time, don't rate it a 'one' because it's not like the TV show. The TV show should be rated a 'one' because it distorts the author's intentions of Yu-Gi-Oh!

    Yu-Gi-NO!!!

    I love Yu-Gi-Oh, and I have seen the movie with my younger brother, but I didn't get within 2 or 3 pages of the book until I found vulgar language, unnecessary pictures and other trash! It could have been a great book, but the author trashed it up! Extremely disappointing!

    Good anime

    I think it was an awesome book that does a great job on introducing the characters by means of their personalities. Every kid who likes watching the Japanese hit series of Yu-Gi-Oh, will get an intro to the characters in the book and find out what happened in the beginning!

    this isnt ur typically yugi

    well hello it's me i wrote a review for other manga's i hope u take my advice it's the best lol. well the manga of yugi or the begging vol of yugioh are about the first season or the forgotton season this season was never brougt to america( the wb11 started to show the yugioh epiosdes form from 28 and up( that why there's so many flash backs we never seen), this season is or manga is very dark it really has nothing to do with duel monsters, yami takes over yugi body when yugi cant defend himself, yami's a real bad ###, the begging vols of the manga arent the kiddie dueling stuff on tv it's more adult( not hentai!!!!!!!!!) if ur son or daughter really likes yugioh u should'nt buy this for them if their younger than 11.

    Yu-Gi-Oh

    Yu-Gi-Oh is a good manga, I enjoy the twist, turns this book gives you. The 'shadow games' will keep you reading, while you try to think of solutions (It's a bit impossible) which makes it really unique.(Oh and yugi is a bit perverted)
