Yu-Gi-Oh Cosplay Imagines Holiday Dark Magician Girl


Yu-Gi-Oh! is one of the biggest anime series that also has a card game that still has tournaments taking place in the real world and while a monkey wrench was thrown into the series thanks in part to the coronavirus pandemic when it came to its tournaments, that hasn’t stopped fans from celebrating the series. With the anime series beginning by following the story of Yugi Moto and his Duel Monsters, one of his favorite cards was Dark Magician Girl, with one cosplayer bringing the character to life with a holiday aesthetic.

During this year’s Jump Festa, the major event that hints at the future for a number of anime franchises, Yu-Gi-Oh! made the announcement that a new anime series was in the works, running under the name of Yu-Gi-Oh Go Rush. With the previous season of the anime franchise being Yu-Gi-Oh Sevens, the series has yet to reveal what ties this new season might have with the previous entries if any. Of course, as fans of the anime franchise know, Yugi Moto’s story ended with the first season that introduced him and his friends, though the Duel Monsters continue to be employed by new duelists via these new stories.

Instagram Cosplayer K8Sarkissian shared this new take on one of Yugi Moto’s favorite duel monsters, giving the Dark Magician Girl a colorful new makeover that gets her into the holiday spirit as fans of the franchise await the new storyline of Yu-Gi-Oh Go Rush to arrive next year:

Though Yugi’s story came to an end with Duel Monsters, he has made appearances in films that followed the conclusion of the first season. While Yu-Gi-Oh Go Rush is telling a new story, the promotional material for the new season hasn’t featured Yugi within it, most likely hinting that the original protagonist once again won’t be featured. While Yugi might be absent, it is definitely possible for Dark Magician Girl to make an appearance as she remains a stalwart card within the franchise.
