What’s going on, y’all? Well, I discovered a bit of news for Yu-Gi-Oh! fans and Netflix users. After spending a long time in its anime lineup, Yu-Gi-Oh will soon be leaving Netflix. Fans have a matter of days to catch up on the adventures of Yugi Motou and his friends before the series’ departure. Netflix currently has three seasons of the original series and recently acquired the first season of Yu-Gi-Oh Arc-V. For now, it is the original series leaving but the likelihood of Arc-V making a departure is not out of the question. While this is will be a blow to fans, fear not. There are other ways to watch Yu-Gi-Oh. Digital versions of the series are available on Amazon and iTunes if you want to buy the episode outright. But if streaming is more your thing, Crunchyroll has everything Yu-Gi-Oh on their site, and hopefully their partnership with HBO Max will bring the world of Duel Monsters to the new streaming conglomerate.
However, the future of the long running franchise hangs in the balance for US fans. The latest series, Yu-Gi-Oh Sevens, is currently on hiatus due to COVID19. Its episodes are doing well in Japan and the trademark application has been filed in the United States, so fans are holding hope for a English dub of the series to begin soon.
