posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The anime premiered on TV Tokyo and BS-TV Tokyo in April 2020. The fifth episode aired on May 2. On May 1 the anime's official website announced that the anime was suspending production due to safety concerns related to the spread of the new coronavirus disease (COVID-19). TV Tokyo then resumed broadcast on June 13 and aired episodes 6-9. TV Tokyo then aired new episodes starting from episode 10 on August 8.
The anime features a protagonist in elementary school for the first time in the franchise. The anime has a new "Rush Duel" rule and takes place in the future in the town of Gōha. Yūga Ōdō, a fifth-grade student, loves both inventions and dueling. His classmate Rook is a self-styled "number one duelist at Gōha 7 Elementary School." Gakuto is the school's student council president, and Romin is Yūga's classmate.
The franchise also includes two manga. Megumi Sasaki launched the Yu-Gi-Oh! Sevens: Boku no Road Gakuen (My Road Academy) comedy spinoff manga in Shueisha's Saikyō Jump magazine last August. Tasuku Sugie and Masahiro Hikokubo launched the Yu-Gi-Oh! Sevens: Rook! Bakuretsu Hadō Den!! (Yu-Gi-Oh! Sevens: Rook! Legend of Exploding Military Rule!!) manga in Shueisha's V Jump magazine last September.
