Yu-Gi-Oh has kept a low profile as of late with its recent anime, but fans around the world have kept the shonen series floating on strong. Thanks to your favorite Duel Monsters, Yu-Gi-Oh is living well, and it seems nostalgia has shot up the franchise’s popularity once more. So, what are fans to do when there is a surge in all things Yu-Gi-Oh?
Well, if you happen to be an award-winning DJ, you blow some serious cash on a diamond-studded Yugi chain.
Over on Twitter, fans found out how Slushii planned to celebrate Yu-Gi-Oh, and the EDM star proved he spared little expense in hyping the series. Slushii posted a photo of a diamond-encrusted Millennium Puzzle he bought and asked whether he was the top Yu-Gi-Oh fan now.

“Am I king of the nerds yet,” Slushii asked.
As you can see above, the accessory redefines anime luxury. Overlaid with a couple hundred diamonds, the Millennium Puzzle looks like a ritzier version of the one Yugi Muto wore in the anime. The only thing missing here is the pendant’s chain, but fans shouldn’t worry; This is Slushii we are talking about, so there is no doubt the DJ got a hefty chain worthy of this blinged-out piece.
Of course, anime fans were surprised to see Slushii drop this kind of money on Yu-Gi-Oh, but the musician has shown how much he loves anime before. In the past, he teamed up with My Hero Academia to release an exclusive track which synced to a motion manga of the series. Now, Slushii is turning his eye to Yu-Gi-Oh, so here's to hoping fans get an entirely anime-themed album before long.
So, would you be willing to rock a chain as extravagant as this one for Yugi Muto? Let me know in the comments or hit me up on Twitter @MeganPetersCB to talk all things comics and anime!
