What are Yugioh Anime Orica Cards?
Yu-Gi-Oh! Anime Orica are custom-made Yu-Gi-Oh! cards that are created by fans or artists. These cards are not official cards produced by Konami, the company behind the Yugioh trading card game. Instead, they are created by individuals who design their own cards using images from the anime or manga series.
These custom-made cards are often created using high-quality printing techniques to mimic the look and feel of official cards, but they may not meet the same quality standards or have the same gameplay mechanics as official cards.
They are typically not allowed in official Konami tournaments or events.
While Anime Orica cards are not official cards, they are often highly prized by collectors and fans of the Yu-Gi-Oh! series due to their unique designs and the creativity of the artists who create them.
In the case of anime cards, they also add a nostalgia factor that collectors crave.
Where to Buy Yugioh Anime Cards
This is a deck of 100 monster, magic, and trap cards from the anime.
There are iconic cards like Blu-eyes and Dark Magician from the Duelist Kingdom.
There’s even the Egyptian gods from Battle City.
Why do Yugioh Cards Look Different in the Anime?
The Japanese version of Yugioh actually had the same cards as the real-life TCG, but when 4kids entertainment dubbed the Yugioh anime to English they had to change the style of cards.
4kids had to change the design because on US TV, companies weren’t allowed to advertise products directly to kids on children’s TV shows. Unlike other franchises like Transformers, Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters had direct product placement in the show.
Why Collect Yugioh Anime Cards
Orica are great to collect if you like the art. They can also be used for casual play between friends.
Another great way to use the cards is if you want to cosplay as a character from the anime. Complete your Kaiba cosplay with a set of Blue-Eyes White Dragon cards just like they appear in the show.
I’ve also seen people use them in comedy skits on Youtube and tiktok which is pretty hilarious.
