this yearbook looks pretty neat! I kinda don't get the whole gist though; by saying that it's being a gift to members, is it digital or printed?

Submitted by John Bae on Tue, 09/25/2012 - 14:04

PRINT!

Submitted by skyisland on Mon, 09/24/2012 - 15:46

Make sure that you have the correct mailing address in your VIZmanga.com account profile.

Submitted by jkphantom on Mon, 09/24/2012 - 17:45

This looks really cool! Is it gonna be available in digital format?

Submitted by TechGenusMaster on Mon, 09/24/2012 - 18:32

I FRIGGIN hope not. Book form is the best, and digital versions will likely be taken back in a year, just like with our current SJA issues.

Submitted by John Bae on Tue, 09/25/2012 - 14:56

It's print. Also, the fourth YGO promo card will be inside the publication. The fourth card will be announced at NYCC.

Submitted by TechGenusMaster on Thu, 09/27/2012 - 19:50

i'll get yusei to get you a shooting quasar dragon if i lose
But if i win, You have to kiss some girl at your school and ask out a different one and i'll ask yusei to get you a shooting quasar dragon

Submitted by HolyPaladin on Thu, 10/11/2012 - 19:53

and you have to ask out the different girl in front of the girl you kissed

Submitted by HolyPaladin on Thu, 10/11/2012 - 20:03

Let me change this agreement

If i win, when we see each other at Cape fear games, i'll find a girl you have to ask out and you must call her a cute princess and ask her out on a date

If i lose, when we see each other at Cape fear games, i'll pay for your tournament entry fee 4 times and you get to keep everything you win

Submitted by TechGenusMaster on Thu, 10/11/2012 - 20:08

No no no... BTW going to bed.
Here are the rules:

1. Prior Knowledge of the card is prohibited.
2. If I win, you have to mail me your number 40, since you were so confident about number 88.
3. If I lose, I will say something "Nice" about girls that you would like.

Submitted by TechGenusMaster on Thu, 10/11/2012 - 20:10

BTW no kissing the girl. Havent kissed girl b4, want it to be special.

Submitted by HolyPaladin on Thu, 10/11/2012 - 20:19

Here Are the rules

If i win, you have to find a girl at your school (Not in manga or anime) and you like and call her a cute princess with my approval

If i lose, when we see each other at Cape fear games, i'll pay for your tournament entry fee 4 times and you get to keep everything you win (Not including Specific Synchro and Xyz monsters)

Submitted by HolyPaladin on Thu, 10/11/2012 - 20:28

if Neither of us win, we have to say
"aw, justin Bieaber is one pretty man" in front of a crowd of people

Submitted by TechGenusMaster on Fri, 10/12/2012 - 04:22

I agree with that! HAHAHA that would be funny.
There is a problem though.
A: can't get you approval; no pictures
B: Girls I think are kinda cute already have boyfriends.
