Wow, we've reached the "fill the magazine with as much YGO Crap as possible" stage not even a year in.

Wow, what a giant disappointment. Nura ends, we beg for a HUGE amount of different series, and they give us something that no body wants? Great..... One reason why I won't be subscribing again.

I know, Nura was a great series, now we get a trash advertisement for a card game. There are so many GOOD series that could be in Alpha.

Yeah, no one wants Yu-Gi-Oh. That's why it's all popular and huge and even one of the most bought series in the US.

Though the anime is better, I'll admit.

That was the SJ panel, which announced that Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal (the worthless card game advertisement series) will be in Alpha every month.

Apparently that was the Viz panel. There's a special SJA fan panel coming up at 5PM EST/8 PT, so, in an hour.

I LIKE Yu-Gi-Oh! and even I can admit ZeXal is crap, although I will admit that it's inclusion does make my likelihood to continue my sub when it runs out at the end of this month higher. That and the Android support. Hopefully that includes Kindle Fire even if I have to sideload.

Best Yu-Gi-Oh! manga since the original. Though I don't see why volume two won't come out until December, then.

Honestly, there could be a lot worse, for those that dislike this. And May I remind everyone that Yu-Gi-Oh! was a bigger cornerstone than Naruto or Bleach in it's times, both here and in Japan? And as far as entire franchises is concerned, it blows away those two. Too, Viz Media being an AMERICAN company, and considering the way Yu-Gi-Oh! still is and always has been... Yeah.

Therefore, it certainly makes sense for them to want to include another Yu-Gi-Oh! series.

Their [Viz Media] point is that it will keep people reading (save for the ~ten people above).

I only liked the original YGO series. I can't even subscribe to VIZ since I'm not in the USA

Are you sure about that? I read the first couple of chapters and it was exactly the same as the anime except abridged. The ZeXal anime is easily the worst Yu-Gi-Oh! series, anime or manga, and if this is still the same I can't say it excites me much. That said, I'm a huge Yu-Gi-Oh! fan and a legal means of reading this manga does help sell me on renewing my dub. I still wish this service was more like Crunchyroll though and let me read from the beginning instead of in the middle of stuff...
