Class System in YGO- Essay Ahoy!

So, here I was, wondering about characterisation issues (while supposed to be doing Ancient Greek homework), and it occurred to me that I was automatically using the British class system to give me ideas on their living habits.

Intrigued by the notion of how class could be used to interpret the characters/plot of the various divisions of the YGO franchise, (well, Duel Monsters and GX, anyway- I have yet to immerse myself in the world of duels which are played on motorcycles), and in the full understanding that all I know about the Japanese class system could be written without too much difficulty on the back of a postage stamp (I know about the Burakumin and that's about it), I created these lists:

Bed now. Have stopped thinking in full sentences. TGIF.

Tomorrow: GX and brief summary of 5DS, or what the author understands of it.

*Goes to bed, anticipating comments in the morning*.

EDIT: I LIED, I'M NOT GOING TO BED. I SWEAR I'M NOT SLEEPY. AM NOT

Some updates on the Kaibas and on Sugoroku Mutou.

Kaibas: It seems that Gozaburo was indeed nouveau riche, which makes them new money by default, and thus upper-middle, though they might be said to be 'living the upper-class lifestyle', and they do seem regarded as awfully posh by most people in the series (their money gets them into upper-class events, but of course the real old-blood purists will still look down on them for being 'new'). This was my original problem: I could not find out whether Gozaburo was new or old money. Thank you, kind commenter!

In regards to Sugoroku Mutou: Just go and read the first comment in the fourth thread. It's got some very, very plausible theories on him being a 'gentleman explorer' using gambling money, born into a high class. It's awsome, go and read it.
ramen girl!

ATTENTION PTDC: I humbly request your assistance.

So, I would like to do a YGO cosplay this year for Halloween. Problem: I don't know how to do the pointy hair. Can anyone give me some pointers (lol, pun) on how to keep it from looking like crap? I know there's at least one of you out there that knows how to do it right.



P.S. I will give you lots of love, cuddles, and cookies. <3

AHOY!!!!

Bein' a landlubber, it took me more or less forever before I even figured out that today be that grand day, National Talk-Like-a-Pirate Day. I were ashamed; I love this holiday. However, once I finally figured out what day it be, I had to celebrate.

And there only be one way to celebrate such a holiday as this within this fandom, mate. With fanart. Of Yami. And Kaiba. As pirates. Playing dice.

Savvy?

Happy holidays
