Gibumi Purisaki (プリさきギブ Purisaki Gibumi), also commonly known by the stage name of Princess G (プリンセスジー Purinsesu Jī), is a minor character in Yu-Gi-Oh! SEVENS. She is a first-rate Duelist and musician who was responsible for giving Romin Kassidy the card "Prima Guitarna the Shining Superstar". Her stage name was first revealed in the official Yu-Gi-Oh!

Design[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Full-body view of Gibumi as Princess G and when she infiltrates Goha 7th Elementary.

Gibumi is a tall woman with aqua eyes and black hair. When she is on-stage as Princess G, she has dyed aqua shoulder-length hair with pink highlights that covers her right eye. She dresses revealing rock-star style clothing; a white midriff-baring off-the-shoulder top with only a strap on the left side and cutouts in the right sleeve, black jeans with the right leg ripped off and five ripped slits over the left knee, hot pink stockings with garter-like straps, and tall heeled open-toed shoes with silver rings. She also wears a white choker, a white cuff on her left wrist, and a golden belt with a heavy silver buckle. Her guitar, a replica of which Romin Kassidy used prior to being given the Duel Guitar, is white with a red neck and a yellow star-shaped head.

When she infiltrates Goha 7th Elementary, Gibumi wears round spectacles akin to those worn by Carly Carmine and ties her hair back, leaving two wicks of hair over her ears. She wears a navy blue skirt suit over a white collared shirt buttoned up to the top, dark grey tights, and black shoes with a low heel. She has also been seen in motorcycle leathers.

During her guest star appearance on Itamae's Case Files: The Serial Sushi Murder Case, the Mystery of the Sliced Ginger Legend Left by the Striking Skipjack Tuna, Princess G dressed in fishmonger's clothes; a simple white shirt and charcoal overalls, and she carried a skipjack tuna (or at least a prop shaped like one, given the fish's substantial weight).

Personality[edit]

Gibumi seems to be very generous. Despite calling "Prima Guitarna the Shining Superstar" her soul, she threw the card into a crowd of her fans to thank them for being able to put on her best performance. She believes in both the potential of children and in committing to a dream despite the obstructions; despite knowing full well it would likely lead to her firing by Goha Enterprises she expressed as much and resolved to continue her music without their help. She also attempts to help Romin Kassidy find peace with her firing and continue to Rush Duel despite it leading to her firing, though she admits that she wasn't sure what to say to her.

While undercover as a student teacher, she puts on a dramatic and clumsy persona to conceal her identity.

Etymology[edit]

Gibumi's first name appears to be drawn from "Gibby", an affectionate name for the Gibson brand of guitars.

Biography[edit]

History[edit]

Princess G sang at a concert that Romin Kassidy attended. She thanked her audience, claiming that it was because of them that she could put on her best performance and she threw "Prima Guitarna the Shining Superstar" to her fans; Romin was the one who caught the card.[3]

Goha 6th Elementary[edit]

Princess G guest-starred on Itamae's Case Files: The Serial Sushi Murder Case, the Mystery of the Sliced Ginger Legend Left by the Striking Skipjack Tuna as one of the three possible culprits. The episode in question was seen by Romin, who wondered what Princess G was doing on the drama show.[4]

Team Battle Royal[edit]

Goha Enterprises began making renewed efforts to stamp out Rush Dueling and the head executive of Goha Music invited Princess G to a meeting with the Goha President where they proposed a live event promoting Goha Duels and insulting Rush Dueling. Princess G asked if they believed the idea would actually work and encouraged them to believe in the children that played Rush Duels, admitting her own love of them. She was promptly fired from Goha Music and left the building, deciding to check up on Romin. She enrolled as a student teacher under he real name at Goha 7th Elementary for a week and was assigned to Romin's class, putting on a clumsy demeanor to conceal her identity. During recess, Gibumi found Romin contemplating quitting Rush Dueling for causing her firing and she pretended to bump into Romin, dropping her "D" card into Romin's Deck. As she helped Romin gather her cards, Romin grabbed "Prima Guitarna the Shining Superstar" before Gibumi could, and Gibumi encouraged her not to give up on what she loved. As a result, Romin instead challenged Yuga Ohdo, the inventor of the format, to one final Rush Duel, which Gibumi rushed to attend. On her way, she bumped into Mimi Imimi, who had deduced her identity and who Gibumi realized was the current Goha President. Gibumi and Mimi watched Romin and Yuga's Rush Duel through a Goha Enterprises Drone from a nearby classroom, Gibumi admitting she wasn't sure what to say to Romin. As Yuga pushed Romin into a corner, Gibumi played a melody on the classroom's piano that inspired Romin to use "CAN:D" in combination with her cards to defeat Yuga. Gibumi and Mimi left the classroom before Romin could find them, and Gibumi confided to Mimi that she intended to continue her music with Goha's help and play with Romin one day before leaving Goha 7th Elementary on her motorcycle.[5]

Gibumi watch the Goha Rush Duel Team Battle Royal, which Romin reached the finals of. She watched Romin's Duel with Roa Kassidy, hoping to hear the Jam of victory only Romin could play. She was pleased by Romin's victory, stating that she'd heard Romin's Jam loud and clear.[6]

Deck[edit]

The only known card Princess G has been shown to own was "Prima Guitarna the Shining Superstar", which she called her soul and tossed into the crowd at a concert, where it was caught by Romin Kassidy. However, it was implied that she also slipped "CAN:D" into Romin's Deck.[5]
