Anime News:

Anime, manga, and trading card fans were dealt a heavy blow this week due to the loss of a famous creator. Kazuki Takahashi, the creator of the popular Yu-Gi-Oh! manga series from Shonen Jump, passed away this week due to a scuba diving-related incident. Originally created in 1996, the Yu-Gi-Oh! manga began as a tribute to many types of games until it introduced the Duel Monsters card game. The series soon focused its story to revolve around it and Konami created a hugely successful trading card game based on it, which is still adored by millions even to this day. We here at NookGaming offer our condolences to the friends, family, and fans of Kazuki Takahashi who were affected by his passing. Rest in peace, Kazuki Takahashi.
