Yugi and Kaiba Anime Reboot Theory

Here is the thing I've been thinking. Recently we got news that in 2016 we will have new ygo movie coming. Spicy thing is that Yugi and Kaiba, the two most outstanding characters ever in ygo history will be back in action. It raised interest all ygo fans all over the world, especially those older ones but also younger ones want to see it since they never saw too much yugi/kaiba action, they arrived later on in ygo franchise lol.Another thing is that they launch series remastering in HD of some most interesting battles. Especially those with Egyptian cards. It airs already this february.

Now thing is, why all this? For so much time people wanted to see old chars back in action, and they've seen in in bonds beyond time movie but why now just yugi and kaiba? They always say it's some milestone shit like last movie was due to 10 yrs of ygo bla bla shiz. Screw that. It can be a reason but it's never a good reason.

My theory is this: original series was a major boom. GX one was disappointing compared to the original one, yet it was watched and they expanded the franchise a bit there with academy idea and all those fusion enhancements. However it was not enough. They needed something more "adult", something faster, something awesome and they made it with 5D's. Fudo looked way different from yugi comparing hair but he was most similar char to him with his style. He was tough, seemed like an adult, he even messed with some fellaz physically. People loved that show and synchro era created a major blast in card selling and game expansion. Ygo finally became interesting to play. It broke Guinness record in trading card game selling i think. Now if we look at Zexal, most of those fans were first hardly disappointed to Yuma being more like Jaden, crazy and dumb. Even Jaden was tougher and more stylish than him. Whole anime was not as 5d's. Of course it has many people liking it very much but overall performance is like when Two and a Half Men lost Charlie Sheen from the show lol. People still watch it and like it but they know something is missing. Xyz were not a problem, they were interesting pretty much however they did not bring anything like synchro did to the game. It was just another type of new thing with nothing VERY new to it. Now problem was that this era introduced MONEY in the game. Cards got so expensive starting from tour guide being like 100$ and enforcing usage of XYZ monsters brought the need for tour guide and such "easy to win" cards that summoned instantly without any drawbacks some powerful monsters such as Zenmaines who was like Swords of Revealing Light back in the days. You summon it and make trouble for opponent to get to you while you build up your potential even more. Anyway Zexal was over, time for new fun, new chance to regain the energy for the show. Arc-V. Pendulums are there and I know nothing about it. But i've searched a bit on the net about it and from what i've seen, a lot of people dislike the show since they went from adult stage back to the roots of childhood etc. Anyway, I don't think they can do this quite long. There is no chance you can simply reinvent some strategy every anime and hope that people will stick stick to ygo, especially when you create something which is not better than the previous thing plus you kind of stop the support for the previous thing. Synhros were so much liked but practically killed since anime only features xyz monsters. When they screw it up with next "innovation" after arc five they might feel the need for "two and the half men finally ends with season 12" thing due to show going down each season lol.

So, I'm thinking they might want to continue the original show to regain the glory. It might bring some very twisted new story that would explain it all or just go back in time and continue with yugi forgetting all these new monster types and creating something to get it more interesting. It all makes sense to me because the plot needs to go from "just another anime show with same type of story just different cards and more nerfed" to something "the biggest plot twist ever" thing to create another boom.Some of the arguments would be that they remaster original show to introduce it to the new kids and let em see how awesome it was. Let them feel yugi and kaiba in HD. Let us cry over our memories again. And let the original gameplay be restored. you know, watching some battles not involving the new types of cards might be delightful. To make us remember how the show was played back then. That makes it perfect to continue the franchise. But, such move of course can be crucial, you will either fail totally or make huge money with it. So, creating remastered edition will make them reports on how well is the interest for it. Do they have enough ppl willing to watch it. Then there is the movie teasing. They want to know how much hype will be created with it. Else no one puts a counter even year before for a movie.... i mean wtf. Then they put a picture of yugi and kaiba together in HD. Now that makes teasing easier: YUGI HAS NO PUZZLE! People continue to comment where the movie will fit it. Like will it just be after the show or somewhere between the seasons etc. Well yugi has no puzzle and guess what? There is no Yami there. Just Yugi himself as an adult O_OHow is this possible? Well he jut grew up and the show continues after the pharaoh went ofc. There is no way they can pull it because of the cards lol. If they put it before or in between the seasons we know no new card mechanic is there after it so they would not be able to invent new card mechanic or type lol.

Also yugi's hair looks like this:

and yugi's look like this:

now lets look at new yugi:

That hair in the middle of his face is down in yugi and for yami its up. So no puzzle and small yugi being an adult now means the franchise is ready for another arc.

So if the HD version gets watched and positive review, takes the interest of new kids willing to watch original show more than the newer ones, and the movie gets positive reception and raises the fans to go all over the social media crying for more, Konami might just do it, or are they already making the plot O_o

It makes sense since it's happening to DBZ.

DBZ's creator Akira Toriyama went ahead to develop the movie we got a year or so back and it tested the audience for a new saga to begin. It was announced DBZ would return in a new saga and now a new movie is being released that might tie it all together.

The idea of bringing old YGO characters in a new saga is neither impossible nor terrible. I'd love to see the old guys go back to dueling and forget about all the new mechanics. Hell, new normal and effect monsters that might rival Synchro-XYZ decks? That'd be great. Maybe they'll work on that, but mostly... it's Yugi and Kaiba! who doesn't want to see these 2 kicking asses and taking names like back in the old days?

Although looks like Kaiba finally got arthritis from screwing the rules so much with his money.

Kaiba was always getting more support for his Blue Eyes... its just that, DM was anime celebrity while Bewd was trading card game celebrity. He did not have to strip naked and do porn to get fame, he already was born with 3000 ATK points which easily could be a threesome with his brothers to make 4500 furious 3 cocked beast.

Ok, ignoring the really disturbing BEWD image you put in my head it was indeed a card game thing. I remember trading kids a Dark Magician for a BEWD. Did it all the time! Kids wanted Dark Magician more than anything.

He looks like a penis? huh. I guess? I don't see it though. I've no issues with penises, though, and no need for questioning my preferences, I went through the ambiguous/curious phase a loooong time ago.
