Trends come and trends go, what is popular today, will not be popular tomorrow, that is just the rule of these things. Humans by nature, at least in this day and age are fickle creatures, always needing to be entertained. What will sate their appetite for a few days they will eventually grow bored and disillusioned with.
Or so I would have liked to believe.until a man named Pegasus J. Crawford, more commonly known as Maximillion Pegasus, the owner of Industrial Illusions came and brutally tore apart that part of reality with his creation of Duel Monsters.
What are Duel Monsters? Well if one were to ask me, I have to first ask you which remote place far from society and other humans did you spend the majority of your life and second would it be possible for me to move there?
If however you were to insist on me actually answering your question, then I would say it is a rather ingenious and exploitative way of making money off of your consumers. Yes, consumers, not just children, did you hear that? Even grown a.d.u.l.ts spend this game, spending their hard earned money on themselves and their children. Maximillion Pegasus struck gold, I can almost bet that the white haired bastard has pools of cash which he no doubt swims in, along with the pools of tears of the kids and a.d.u.l.ts who wasted money on pointless card booster packs and never got that one card they needed.
Duel Monsters have also gone beyond just being a card game, it has infected society itself, now people can be popular based on the amount and more specifically the type of Duel Monsters they have collected. Also, your prowess with Duel Monsters is able to affect how popular you are. Say if you were an average high school student, you had average all-round grades, nothing too special. With Duel Monsters, add in that you have a a few rare cards or an impressive card collection or just that you were a good duelist, then you could become popular with your peers.
This however is a double-edged sword, say you have an impressive collection of cards, this will also invoke the envy of those who don't have those cards, due to being unlucky or having parents like mine who rarely get them anything. Will these peers of theirs gawk and fawn over them? Well in my case I don't but in most cases they do. Which results in being given the attention that they desire from people who secretly despise them. And that is just the best case scenario as many of your peers will desire to take your rare cards, and collection from you.
You are good Duelist? Then people will constantly challenge you, to beat you and prove they are better, winning in this situation will only feed your ego and make your duelist complex even worse. And when you are eventually defeated the scorn and shame you will receive from your so-called friends will show you how fake they were to begin with. This will no doubt lead to an obsession with winning being developed, if that obsession was not already there in the first place.
Such obsessions are unhealthy as it will lead said person to do anything to win to regain or keep what they consider their 'glory' all over a card game.
What is worse is that Duels have gotten so popular that I hear they plan to make it a career, like a sport. A card game made over a professional sport, what is worse is that there is a demand for that? Just look around and you will find people watching duels with interest even outside of schools.
And what type of people will this professional dueling attract? the very same 'good duelists' who have developed an obsession with winning, only this time they are not just getting recognition but money too. They are being validated for their unhealthy obsession and society only makes it worse.
To all people who love and obsess over Duel Monsters, please go die.
Pegasus J. Crawford or as he was more commonly known Maximillion Pegasus looked at the letter and wondered exactly what kind of person Hikigaya Hachiman was. "Why I do believe someone must have mixed up the mail, this definitely isn't fan mail" he commented.
Now the Owner of Industrial Illusions wasn't unaware that they were those out there who despised him, in fact he was accustomed to receiving both fan and hate mail from people. But receiving the tail end of a student exam, that was new. It was clear that whoever this Hikigaya boy was, he never intended for Pegasus to read his words. Which meant someone else had gotten their hands on this exam and had thought it would be funny to mail it to him.
"Should I write the boy a reply, I usually do so with my fan mail" Pegasus pondered for a moment before an idea came to him.
Picking up his personal phone that was on his desk Pegasus dialed for one of his assistants. "Could you please find the address of Hikigaya Hachiman?"Pegasus waited briefly while his assistant on the other end of the line clarified what he had just asked.
"More fan mail, I'm afraid" Pegasus replied hearing the slight groan on the other end of the line "Yes, I am going to write him a reply, I do take time to reply to all of them you know."
Pegasus now paused as his assistant questioned him a little more.
"No" he replied "this is a far more recent one and one I must answer posthaste" Pegasus explained. "I actually think this one warrants a retain gift, a nice surprise as you could say.
Again Pegasus paused as his assistant asked a few more questions "no, not flowers, I am going to send him a card or two. Nice and rare cards to brighten his day, as Hikigaya-boy certainly needs it."
It seemed that Pegasus's assistant on the other end was protesting his decision, since you couldn't just send out rare cards by mail randomly.
"Why ever not?" Pegasus questions with faux surprise "I am certain he will just love it to pieces." After voicing a few more concerns the assistant caved in and said they would start right away before waiting ending the call.
With that done Pegasus got out a paper and decided to pull out a quill, only fitting that he give his reply 100% of his effort. As he was writing Pegasus mused "I wonder how you are going to react to this Hikigaya-boy?"
