About Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V

Yu-Gi-Oh Arc-V - The story of Yuya's Pendulum Summoning

Yu-Gi-Oh Arc-V (stylized as Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V and read as "Arc Five") is a spin-off series of the popular Japanese anime, Yu-Gi-Oh. Arc-V's story follows second-year preparatory school student Yuya Sakaki's journey to become a professional Dueltainer (or "entertainment Duelist"). During a duel with the current champion of the Pro Duel world, Yuya awakens a new power, called Pendulum Summoning, which attracts the attention of Declan Akaba, president of Paradise City's Leo Corporation. Meanwhile, a dark Duelist who looks almost identical to Yuya is trying to take down the same Leo Corporation. Yuya later discovers that he has multiple interdimensional look-alikes. He and his friends ultimately find themselves in the middle of a conflict with a Duel Academy from another dimension.

As with the previous spin-offs, Yu-Gi-Oh Arc-V introduces a new type of Summoning. This time, it's Pendulum Summoning as well as Pendulum Monsters. It is the fourth spin-off anime series in the Yu-Gi-Oh franchise, following Yu-Gi-Oh Zexal. The series aired in Japan on TV Tokyo from April 2014 to March 2017. The series is licensed outside Japan by Konami's 4K Media Inc. and launched internationally in 2015. A manga adaptation by Naohito Miyoshi began serialization in Shueisha's V-Jump magazine in August 2015. The series was succeeded by Yu-Gi-Oh Vrains, which premiered in May 2017.

This series, along with the concurrently running Yu-Gi-Oh GX, marks the only Yu-Gi-Oh series to show all unique types of Summoning from the Yu-Gi-Oh Trading Card Game: Fusion Summoning (from Yu-Gi-Oh and Yu-Gi-Oh GX), Ritual Summoning (from Yu-Gi-Oh and Yu-Gi-Oh GX), Synchro Summoning (from Yu-Gi-Oh 5D's), Xyz Summoning (from Yu-Gi-Oh Zexal) and the newly introduced Pendulum Summoning.

Yu-Gi-Oh Arc-V has a slightly different story structure than previous Yu-Gi-Oh series. Rather than having a group of main characters, Yuya is the only one who remains consistently relevant throughout the entire show. There is a handful of other major characters, but they rotate in and out of the spotlight.
