I just got my replacement copy of Yu-Gi-Oh! The Gospel of Truth! (For anyone not familiar with it, it's a character guide and story guide for the manga that was put out in Japan back in 2002.) It has profiles of all the major characters, including age, birthday, height & weight, favorite food, blood type.

The thing that was really interesting to me when I got my first copy back then was comparing the ages of the high school kids. I had read somewhere that in Japan, the grade you're in is determined by the year you're born, so Yugi and all his classmates would have been born in the same year. So it was easy to determine who was oldest: whoever's birthday came earliest in the year, and that would be Jounouchi, who was born on January 25. Then comes Otogi in February, Honda in April, Yugi in June, Anzu in August, Bakura in September, and waaaay at the end is Kaiba, whose birthday is October 25, making him the youngest of all the kids.

It amuses me to think that Yugi, despite being small and looking like a little kid, is actually older than Kaiba.

I was thinking about that this morning, and then I remembered another thing I think one of my Japanese teachers once told me, which is that in Japan, everybody is considered to be one year older on January 1, regardless of when their actual birthday is. So all the kids would be 16 all year long, even though their birthdays are spread throughout the year. That makes sense, and ties in with them being placed in their class depending on their birth year.

Anyway. That's today's ramble. If anyone is interested in any data from the book, I'll try to hunt it up for you.

Finally got myself a DVD copy of Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions and watched it. I had unintentionally run into some spoilers for the end, so I was watching the whole thing sort of flinching and waiting for Things to happen. I'll have to watch it again so I can relax and enjoy it more.

I was happy to see that the DVD included the Japanese language version with English subtitles, but was disappointed to find that the subtitles weren't actually subtitles, but a transcript of the dub dialog, which in places was very obviously not what the characters were actually saying. Would it be that hard for them to include real subtitles? Sigh.

I don't want to post spoilers here, in case anyone hasn't seen it, but will happily talk about it in the comments!

In other news, I've just finished writing my first Yu-Gi-Oh! story in years! (More than ten years, in fact! Yikes!) And I could use a beta. The story is about 12,000 words, set post-series, gen, focuses mostly on Jonouchi and Yugi, but also includes Honda and Anzu, Yugi and Jonouchi's families, and the Kaiba brothers. It's based on manga canon, so includes references to early stuff that isn't included or only lightly touched on in the anime. The story is that the boys are 19 now, out of high school and starting to make their way in the adult world, and Jonouchi's life gets shaken up when his father is struck down by a heart attack. If anyone would be willing to take a look at it, please let me know!

I've been waiting for this one! Looks like it starts off a little differently than Yami Bakura's events, where you had to collect enough dice to challenge him at the Gate - this time, you need to defeat regular Duel World duelists to find enough map pieces for the Rare Hunters to even show up.

From what I understand, they've put in several Rare Hunter (known) characters for this event. Plus I'm excited for Yami Malik's custom dialogue with people.

Okay, so. Series 0 and Duel Monsters do not timeline together neatly. At All. But I'm trying to rely on both canons for this here ginormous fanfic. So:

Clearly Seto is in control of Kaiba Corp before Duel Monsters opens. I doubt this is true when he is introduced in Series 0. Thus: at what point did that change? Or is he already running the show at his first appearance? (I mean, we don't see Gozaburo in that episode...)

Let's talk about Duel Links... who else is playing?

Are you enjoying the current Paradox Brothers event? (I'm finding it one of the harder events so far, to be honest!)

Who's your favourite character to play as, and what type of deck do you like to use?

Erp, are there really no posts here? :( In any case, I have a bunch of extras of the Kotobukiya One-Coin Grande Yu-Gi-Oh figurines.

I have these characters for sale: Black Magician Girl, Ishizu, Blue Eyes White Dragon, Kisara, and Honda Hiroto. They're $13 each plus shipping and handling and I can ship anywhere in the world. All the figures are new and untouched, the box was only opened in order to check which character it was.

If you're interested, leave me a comment here! If you're intersted, I also have doujinshi for sale here - they're Samurai Troopers and Naruto doujinshi, though. Check it out if you're interested!
