    While looking up info on Mai on the Yugioh wikia , I saw this picture. I own all the manga, and have never seen anything remotely like that before, but it looked far too much like Takahashi's to be fan art. Some repeated clicking on the picture led me to a page that said the source was a tarot card from the Yugioh bunkoban. What's a bunkoban? And then I remembered hearing about the special re-releases of the manga in Japan, and scurried to google to look them up.

    These things look amazing. The cover art... I can't even describe the cover art. Look for yourselves.

    You can see the other 21 covers at the previous link. Not only to they have amazing new covers, they've got notes by Takahashi-sensei, higher quality paper, more chapters per volume, and they each come with a tarot card. According to the article, "The cards cover the 22 cards of the Major Arcana." I don't know anything about tarot, nor do I care for it, but I would love to see the artwork.

    Who else is ready to flood Via with letters and demand THIS instead of the lame "collector's edition" that was in stores in the fall?

    The cards and bookmarks are kinda cool lookin...but why is Ryou the fool? (not that anyone wants to be the fool...) The Devil card with Zorc on it made me think of Zorc & Pals "Who's that crazy kook destroyin the world?" I don't know if lelola.net still has them up, but I still have the pictures of the Yu-Gi-Oh! tarot cards she made (Pan-chan is a girl, right?).

    I guess because Yami Bakura takes advantage of him the whole series? Hopefully she'll get a translation up. Or Viz will get THESE instead of the "collector's edition"s. -_-;; 20 bucks for a hardback reprint of volume 1? No, thanks.

    They look awesome! =D

    I hope that perhaps a group of people decide to replace the japanese in the text bubbles and put an english translation to them and then perhaps upload them to the internet into a website so people could read the entire thing for free...
