If you have ever wanted to wear the Millennium Pendant from Yu-Gi-Oh! without having to worry about Yami Yugi possessing you, then you are in luck! A Japanese company has recently released a line of high-fashion jewelry inspired by the anime series, and each piece will definitely make you want to duel.
The retailer Super Groupies has unveiled its line of Yu-Gi-Oh! watches and pendants to celebrate the franchise’s 20th anniversary. The company is selling two different pieces: one is modeled after Yugi’s Millennium Puzzle while the other is inspired by Seta Kaiba’s chic style.
The first piece is immediately recognizable to any Yu-Gi-Oh! fan. The gold-plated watch looks very much like Yugi’s ancient artifact, and its triangle-shaped body adds to the authenticity. The timepiece comes with a leather band and is marked with a special anniversary logo on the back. If you fancy wearing the Millennium Puzzle elsewhere, Super Groupies also includes a silver-plated chain with the purchase. You can detach the pendant from the leather band and transform it into a necklace that Yugi would definitely wear.
If you’re not inclined to rock the Millennium Puzzle, then you can always go with the company’s other item. Super Groupies is also selling a watch modeled after Seto Kaiba, Yugi’s rival and series anti-hero. The sleek, stainless steel watch is imprinted with the Kaiba Corporation Logo and even features the Blue-Eyes White Dragon. Even the watch face’s hour markers are designed to look like the monster’s angled eyes.
Currently, the watches are slated to go on sale next April. The Millennium Puzzle model will run fans 18,000 yen ($175) while the Seto Kaiba piece will cost 12,800 yen ($114). Shipping and handling costs will vary.
Should you have the time or interest, any of you Yu-Gi-Oh! fans might just want to pick up your limited edition jewelry in Japan. There are several events going on this year to celebrate the franchise’s 20th anniversary, and one major celebration will be going on early next year. In January, Tower Records Japan will be transforming two of its cafes into Yu-Gi-Oh! restaurants, so they’ll be serving up some inspired treats in January. If can afford to make the trip and wait around a bit, then more power to you.0comments
Just, be weary of Yami. You never know when they guy might strike; He’s stubborn like that.
