So, yeah, Japanese discussion thread isn't the place to talk about this, so, here's a thread about Zexal!
It'll air next year, presumably the week after 5D's ends. No confirmed date though.
The manga will start alongside the anime this time unlike Gx and 5D's that had a gap of time where the Anime went without the manga starting.
Main character isTsukumo Yuuma
Plot so far given is: Yuuma, after a series of mishaps and bad luck, ends up pissing off the #1 Bad Boy of his school, Ryouga. Ryouga ends up challenging him to a duel, but the mysterious life-form "Astral" appears before Yuuma...!? It's the start of a new legend!
This series' mechanic is Exceed Summon, which apparently (not yet fully confirmed) requires of putting cards on top of each other for bigger fish, no sending to the graveyard and the levels are very important. (In the manga a guy summons a bigger fish with tank parts by getting two level four monsters together and the bigger fish is level eight)
Also, Yuuma's parents are dead. And they gave him the Gold Ranger Staff necklace. And they were adventurous
Takahashi blogs about ZeXal:
It looks like information about Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL has been announced.
I have lent a hand in character designs this time, as well.
Among the successive generations of protagonists, his name is Yuma, and he's the youngest character.
The anime will start next spring, and the manga is planned to start soon in V-Jump.
In any case, Miki/Mitsuyoshi/Miyoshi/Sayoshi-kun, who I've asked to oversee
Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL's manga, is really good at drawing!
I already have complete faith in him!
Because my character designs were also indeed pieces of joke stuff (ネタ切れ; not too sure about this part), I was planning to refuse a fourth series,
but with a low-age protagonist, I felt I'd still be able to go with a story and ideas, so I gave it a shot.
I think it'll be interesting! By all means, please look forward to it!
Still, my character design drawings seem to be really hard to draw, so to all the animators, sorry about that!
