Bakura's Name
Ryō(u) is written with a rare kanji. 了 (Ryou) means "completion" (of a task) or "understanding" (in the sense of having knowledge of something).

Bakura might sound Japanese, but it's actually not a Japanese name. It's most commonly seen in Austria and Slovakia in modern usage, and is written using at least one very unique kanji.

獏 (Baku) is the same kanji used to refer to a spirit in Japanese mythology known to eat nightmares.
良 (Ra)) is usually not read as Ra at all (it's often read as 'Ryou'!), but usually means "good" or "profitable".

Comparatively, when the Thief King is referred to as Bakura (likely for coherency's sake, as Yami Bakura still refers to the Pharaoh as "Yugi" even after they're separated), it's written in katakana to show it's a foreign name.

Amane's Name
天音 (Amane) is a common first name, and written with the kanji for "heaven" and "sound".

Letters to Amane
This manga-only subplot is only briefly alluded to in one page; Ryou is seen writing a letter to his dead younger sister. The fact of her death was confirmed in a guidebook released by the mangaka in 2002, but the details were never revealed other than that it was a car accident that claimed her life.

Card List!

This is the canon list of Yami Bakura's cards. Initially, I had him using the Occult Deck from Battle City, but with a few older cards added in to pad it out. Some cards had been added from his later canon decks.

-Since the events involving the Rose Duelists, he's been working to upgrade his deck.
-Thanks to the help of Judai Yuki, he also now has some GX cards in his newer deck.
-He briefly also held Ra as collateral, but did not use it.
-He previously held Diabound Kernel, but gave it to the thief king in a rare gesture of generosity.

Occult Deck
Darkness Lockdown

+ Going by anime rules. This only applies to ones where there's an option between anime and TCG.

This is a guide specifically to the Bakura-related scenes and episodes of the Yu Gi Oh! Duel Monsters anime, for both my quick reference, and that of anyone else who may be interested.

This will be done in comments, with a specific layout - the Episode Number and title, followed by separate threads for images and scripts, to lower strain on users. Each will also have a separate thread for my comments and notes, and any comments other people wish to put in. For episodes with separate Bakura scenes, I will be separating the thread into multiple comments per scene, to reduce image overload.

If anyone was wondering what the Bakuras sound like, take your pick; I've got samples of most of the different VAs. It's a good way to tell the difference between the two as well... The links lead to the comments, as I ended up with too many clips to stick in the top post.

Tsutomu Kashiwakura - Toei JP Voice Actor
You Inoue - Duel Monsters JP Voice Actor (Duelist Kingdom)
Rica Matsumoto - Duel Monsters JP Voice Actor (Battle City Onwards)
Chuck Powers - Singapore Dub
Ted Lewis - 4Kids

He has a great range, na?

1. This is Rica Matsumoto's "redo" of You Inoue's line. In the flashback, they redid the dialogue so it sounds more natural and in sync with the newer voice.
