Konami has announced that it will launch the Yu-Gi-Oh! Sevens anime in the United States on Disney XD on June 6, 2022 and on Hulu on June 7, 2022.
The series features a protagonist in elementary school for the first time in the franchise. The anime has a new “Rush Duel” rule and takes place in the future in the town of Gōha. Yūga Ōdō, a fifth-grade student, loves both inventions and dueling. His classmate Rook is a self-styled “number one duelist at Gōha 7 Elementary School.” Gakuto is the school’s student council president, and Romin is Yūga’s classmate.
Yu-Gi-Oh! Sevens premiered on Japanese television in April 2020.
