Am I the only one who's scared?

That image is the first peek we have had at Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL (pronounced "ze-a-ru" - the X is silent, apparently). We do not yet know what the series is about, but the lead character's name is "Yuma Kyuujyuukyuu (or some other reading of "99")," the blue spirit thing is called "Astral," and the last character has the kanji for "god" in his (her?) name. If I had a better scan, I could tell you all more.

I swear there is a reason for this Digimon.

For now, I am afraid. Very, very afraid. The huge X and the protagonist's hairstyle remind me of Shoutmon, the lead character's partner Digimon on Xros Wars. Xros Wars is, itself, a mediocre member of the Digimon franchise. It's really sad that YGO has had to resort to not only possibly putting the series in outer space (only slightly more dangerous than card games on motorbikes) to stay in business. It is sadder still that it cannot give the anime a break, but that is a topic for another entry. 

But a Digimon mooch? Ra help us all. *Kisses her Winged Dragon of Ra like a rosary.*
