Did You Know?


Kazuki Takahashi also paid special attention in redesigning the iconic duel monsters: * Dark Magician: this version looks similar to it's appearance in Duel Art. Originally, Dark Magician was more blue and purple than black. This was because in the manga, a completely black character weighs the page down and can be difficult to deal with, but this is not a concern in movies. * Blue-Eyes Alternative White Dragon: When designing monsters, Takahashi felt adding a lot of lines can make them look cool at the cost of quality, and that simple designs are most beautiful. However, as he was dealing with animation, lighting and other effects would bring out the differences, so he designed this "Blue-Eyes" with a style not used before. * Dark Magician Girl: with the iconic apprentice of Dark Magician, Takahashi redrew the Dark Magician Girl to be more feminine and girlish in her appearance.

Glorious Return of Duel Monsters to the Big Screen
4 February 2017 | by carl_the_christianSee all my reviews

This movie was amazing; especially, when compared to the series. In length it is the equivalent to a 7-part episode, and they would be 7 of the best episodes of the series. It has a very similar feeling to watching the duel with Pegasus or the Egyptian God card duels of the series.

The animation is superb, and though a little bit of CGI/2.5D is used, it is very mild, looks good, and much more clean than is often seen in Pokemon movies.

The beginning is a little slow at times, but the rest of the movie is very well paced with plenty of dueling and plenty of lore. It is a wondrous follow-up to the Duel Monsters series. In a period when many long-awaited sequels and remakes of well-known franchises are failing, this one brings back all the nostalgia and joy of Duel Monsters.
