Now, whenever Yugi's friends are threatened, a strange transformation occurs, and Yugi seems to become an entirely different person. This transformed Yugi is a master of games, and uses these spontaneously-invented games to trap and to punish the bad guys. At the end of each game, his opponent appears to suffer a painful death; but it is soon revealed that this was all in their minds – or was it?

Both of these manga contain a lot of small simularities, and the main plot revolves around card game battles.

Drahken Drahken says...

The early part of Yugioh involves high stakes games where game elements and the players interact in the same world, and later on involves the well known card game, while unboy uses both of these elements right from the beginning.

Yakoz Yakoz says...

Both title are perfect for a younger audience that loves card games. Main character strives for success hoping to become the best duelist/gamer, yet he's not aware of all the obstacles he'll have to go through. Antagonists also look charismatic and richer than average people.UNBOY is a great-looking full colored manhwa with a hint of rpg elements, high-tech instruments and an ambitious kid as protagonist. Yu-Gi-Oh has proven a lot, becoming one of the most popular card battle games in the world. Story has a couple of interesting twists and a lot of great monster-like cards that resemble legendary pokémon.

UNBOY and Shaman King are two titles where characters are bound to their cards/spirits and try to fight and overcome strong opponent with an ultimate goal: become the best in what they do, whether it's becoming the best duelist or the best shaman of the entire world. Flashy battles await all the readers of this promising title called UNBOY and the already famous Shaman King.
