The third 2014 issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is announcing on Monday that a new Yu-Gi-Oh! television anime series, Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V, will premiere next spring. The anime will feature a new protagonist, Yuya Sakaki, and the magazine previewed a visual of Yuya and a few key monsters. More details will be in future issues of Weekly Shonen Jump and V Jump magazine.
Weekly Shonen Jump calls the new series the fifth Yu-Gi-Oh! project, preceded by Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters, Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monster GX, Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D’s, and Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal. (The very first Yu-Gi-Oh! television anime fromToei Animation and TV Asahi in 1998 is often not grouped with the others, and the Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal II sequel is combined with the first Zexal series.)
The current Yu-Gi-Oh! television anime, Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal II, premiered in Japan in October 2012. Konami began airing this series on The CW’s Vortexx programming block in the United States in August.
