1. One-Shots On The Rise?!
2. Summer Ghost Coming To A Screen Near You!
As we transition into the latter half of July, an interesting cocktail of developments sets the stage for what lies ahead. This week has been unlike any other so far in the year; a culmination of the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic and interesing cultural differences across the world have made what seems to be the perfect storm of chaos in the world of anime. This week spells quite an interesting melting pot of headlines! Here's your Rapid Rundown for proof:
1. U.S. Faces Unprecedented Manga Shortages!
2. Russia Goes On Another Anime Banning Spree!
3. Misfit of the Demon King Academy Manga Author Passes Away
4. New "I Can't Believe it's not Hentai!" Anime Unleashed!
As we transition into the latter half of 2021 and the mega tins inch closer to their big release, duelists worldwide are emptying out their savings to cash in on the massive influx of budget reprints which the Tin of Ancient Battles will eventually bring. Perhaps the most sought after decks currently are Dogmatikas and Eldlich; the two biggest names in the meta right now. Invoked Shaddolls, Zoo Tribrigades and Drytron are also close behind. Unfortunately, none of the decks mentioned so far are accessible to anyone with a budget under $200; a formidable barrier of entry which can intimidate even the most enthusiastic of duelists from joining in to fight with the big names in the top brackets of competitive play.
In light of this reality, we've dug around and compiled a list of our own for all the budget engines in the game which are being overlooked right now!
