Une telle réputation suscite jalousies et rivalités et nombreux sont ceux qui l'affrontent dans des duels sans merci. Yûgi relève tous les défis, mais est-il capable de battre Pegasus Jr Crawford, le redoutable créateur du jeu Magic and Wizard ? Pour l'amateur de jeux de rôles, pas de problèmes ! Yu-Gi-Oh est un régal dont il dévore fiévreusement chaque volume. Pour le néophyte qui ignore la signification des cartes et les règles du jeu de rôle, la lecture de ce manga lui demandera, au début, un effort d'attention. Mais une fois cet obstacle franchi, il sera le premier à se prendre au jeu. Kasuki Takahashi ne ménage ni ses personnages, ni les nerfs de ses lecteurs. Au fil du récit, Yûgi et ses amis affrontent des adversaires de plus en plus retords dans des joutes de plus en plus féroces, où le mental tient le premier rôle. Chaque chapitre relance le suspense. Chaque tome en appelle un autre. On ne voit pas où peut s'arrêter cet effroyable duel, s'il s'arrête un jour... À noter : Yu-Gi-Oh est publié dans son sens original de lecture, c'est à dire que le livre s'ouvre par la dernière page comme au Japon ! " [172-osl] .
