An original Yu-Gi-Oh! manga not based off an anime? Interesting.

The silhouette is Flash Sword if you couldn't tell. Would have preferred a manga by Takahashi doing The Dark Side of Dimensions to avoid the censorship that was in the film and to expand on the plot because he was limited by run time. They really fumbled on the 25th anniversary of the manga. A complete opposite of the 20th. The manga needs a new adaptation that actually follows the story without altering anything.

Uh... the original Yugioh manga called Yugioh in 1996 that is the reason Yugioh exists and spawned 2 anime adaptations in 1998 and 2000 competing with each other on who can incorrectly adapt Takahashi's story the most and 1 movie in 1999 using material from the Duelist Kingdom arc in the manga for an original story. Also, OCG Structures manga in 2019. It wasn't unforeseeable that another manga on the OCG would happen.

In the OCG/TCG, there are lores within cards/archetypes (depicted in the artwork of the cards/archetypes themselves) and they’re going to do a manga based on Sky Strikers and its lore it seems. It’s cool to see card lores being adapted into stories, I wonder if they’ll do more after Sky Strikers.

Zexal was also basically a manga first and the anime until the kite tenjo duel followed the manga until the anime overtook it and diverged. As for dark side of dimensions, it did surprisingly riducously well domestically here in the west with 1 mill for a 13% gross so it did on par with sao and konosuba here, despite them only showing the dub. I doubt it will get a sequel considering the end.

I know, but other than R it has seemed like each manga has just been adapting the latest anime version of the franchise (other than Zexal where it seems like the manga came first).

The "Warrior Dai Grepher" archetype would be an interesting one to have an anime version of.

Anime isn't made in a week. It begins production half to a whole a year or more in advance. Basically, at the start of the final arc of the previous series. The ZeXal manga was announced alongside the anime in December 2010. It was a preview for the anime as the anime was scheduled for April. The anime production started first then they got someone to review the anime story outline or actual episodes (because there should be several already finished by time the announcement is made since it has a release date) and make a manga for it. Dragon Ball Z Fukkatsu no F movie had a 3 chapter manga in February before the movie released in April. The manga only covered a certain part of the story because the full story was in the movie, and anime movies take years to make so it's clear the mangaka had access to the movie version. The ZeXal manga ended up the same as the GX and 5D's manga before it. A different story. Only the original and OCG Structures manga didn't need a anime.

R is based on a scrapped plot by Takahashi set after Battle City. His editor told him to wrap up the manga because BC took too long and R was unrelated to main story. R is an extension to the original manga meaning manga first. There's no way your original post should have been your original post when there are multiple manga's in the series that didn't need a anime and (the main point) the article literally says related to the OCG. OCG Structures, which is also mentioned in the article, is exactly that. Just saying. As for ZeXal, read my response above this.

Is the silhouette of the new protagonist? If so, looks like we might have a female lead this time around.

It's too bad VRAINS never got a manga adaptation. I always enjoyed how the spin-off mangas were AUs telling entirely new stories using the anime's characters.

The silhouette is literally the card art of Sky Striker Ace - Raye.
