YU-GI-OH: FORBIDDEN MEMORIES
2018 SEP 03
Once upon a time, there was a manga called Yu-Gi-Oh. Here's a quick summary of the events, as foretold by my ass, because I never actually read the manga, but I watched the Konami anime adaptation. That's the same thing, right?
So once upon a time, archaeologists defiled a sacred Egyptian tomb and found ancient artifacts and a really broken puzzle. While the artifacts were sold to the highest bidder, the puzzle was gambled away repeatedly until it landed in the hands of a 7 year old child who really liked Duel Monsters. So, he traded the puzzle for a Watapon card or some shit, and this little kid named Yugi Motou, who was the shopkeep's grandson, got the puzzle. He spent months trying to solve it until he realized that his friend Jonouchi threw a piece of it into the river nearby. Then the heart of the cards happened or something, I don't know, and Yugi became really hot when he finally solved the puzzle and unlocked the power of becoming the ancient Egyptian pharaoh named Dan Green. With this power, he became the King of All Games That Have Ever Existed and Will Exist in Every Possible Future, making him the best at both Monopoly and Uno. Which, as you all know, is the greatest test of skill that could possibly exist.
Then, it got an anime adaptation by Toei in which the pharaoh was also a maniacal killer, making games again scumbags, in which the other players would inevitably cheat, because they were scumbags, and the proper retribution would be either dropping them to their deaths, burning them alive, ripping off their face, digital pets eating their owners, you know, the kind of stuff that little kids like. And in the background of that was a half-assed game called Duel Monsters, in which players had children's trading cards and dueled each other to the death.
