Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL or Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal is a manga series. It is set in the near future as the successor to the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's series.

The manga was published monthly in Japanese in the V Jump magazine, and in English in the Weekly Shonen Jump Alpha/Weekly Shonen Jump magazine. It began serialization on December 18, 2010, and ended on June 21, 2015. It introduces the Xyz Summon mechanic and Xyz Monsters and follows Yuma Tsukumo's adventures to obtain the "Numbers" with Astral.

The Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL manga is written by Shin Yoshida, illustrated by Naohito Miyoshi and published by Shueisha. Kazuki Takahashi also supervises the series. Unlike Yu-Gi-Oh! GX and Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's, the Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL manga was released before the anime.

Plot[edit]

The series is set in the near future. Ryoga Kamishiro is the number one bad boy at his school. Something unexpected happens as Yuma Tsukumo challenges him to a Duel. When the mysterious entity Astral appears before them a new legend begins.

Rules[edit]

The OCG Master Rules are used, with the addition of the Xyz Monsters.

Chapter Guide[edit]

The Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL chapters are called "Ranks", so, instead of "Chapter 1", you should look for "Rank 1", for example.

Trivia[edit]

  • In the English version, Yuma's catchphrase "Kattobingu" has been changed to "I'm Gonna Jet!!", rather than "Feeling The Flow" like in the anime.
  • This is the first manga since the original to retain the characters' Japanese name in the English edition, rather than change them to match the names used in the 4Kids Entertainment anime dub.
