Yu-Gi-Oh! D Team ZEXAL (pronounced zay-al [IPA: zeɪal] in Japanese, pronounced zek-sul in English) is a Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL spin-off manga series. It is being published in the Saikyō Jump magazine. This story is non-canon to the anime and manga series.


Yuma In D Team Zexal

Yuma Tsukumo in Yu-Gi-Oh! D Team ZEXAL.

In contrast to the first manga, this one focuses on humor and all characters are drawn in a chibi style.

In this story, Yuma Tsukumo, Tori Meadows, Caswell, and Bronk Stone form a Dueling Team named ZEXAL. Also, Yuma knows Astral since the beginning, but he is still the only one who can see him.



The rules used in the manga, as well as the cards, are the OCG ones.


Differences from other series

D Team Zexal Cards

The OCG artworks used in the manga.

  • This is the first Yu-Gi-Oh! series to illustrate the characters using a chibi style. However, the monsters are illustrated normally.
  • The illustrations for the cards are taken directly from the OCG.
  • Up till now, there isn't a D Team Zexal Manga Rank that hasn't a duel involving Yuma Tsukumo and all the duels of Bronk Stone and Takashi Todoroki are off screen.
