Mai Kuja-who?

You might be more familiar with Mai Kujaku as Mai Valentine from the hit Japanese anime series, Yu-Gi-Oh! In Japan, the series is known as Yu-Gi-Oh Duel Monsters and focuses on the lives of several people that play the popular card game “Duel Monsters” (Magic and Wizards in the Japanese manga/comic book). But of course, it’s more than just a game– prestige, riches, and the very fate of the world rest in the hands of several teenagers…

Mai is just one of the many intriguing characters from this popular anime and is liked by people from around the world.

In Japanese, her surname means “peacock,” which fits with her egotistical attitude and her love of female “Harpie” cards from the Duel Monsters card game.

In English, Mai’s surname is “Valentine,” likely to be a pun on the phrase “My Valentine.”

Why Aroma Tactics?

When Mai is first introduced in the first arc of both the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime and manga, she claims to possess a special ability for knowing exactly what cards she is going to draw from her deck. She uses this to con a regional champion out of his room onboard the cruise ship bound for Duelist Kingdom and tries to use it again on Jounouchi (Joey) during their duel, but the truth comes out that she just scented her cards with different perfumes in order to tell them apart.
