Im gonna cry
Okay, ya see this ? THIS IS THE ONLY TIME HE SHEDS A TEAR. EVER
He cracks tehre and then because after GIVING UP EVERYTHING FOR THEM, AFTER COMMITING SUICIDE TO STOP BAKURA, AFTER ACCEPTING TO WEAR THE RING, AFTER EVERYTHING HE HAD DONE FOR THE GANG, he is once again EXCLUDED AND ALONE.
ANYBODY WOULD EVENTUALLY CRACK AFTER STAYING STRONG FIR SO LONG, shut up.
And everyone keeps calling him Bakura when it’s his last name. That means they don’t trust him as much as he trusts them. They don’t consider him such a great friend as Ryou considers them.
Jonouchi and Honda are also their last names, though. I’m no expert, but in Japan you don’t call someone by their first name unless you’re really close (meaning family/lovers/BFFs, which is why only Shizuka calls his brother Katsuya) or to insult them, Yugi being the exception. Anzu also gets called “Mazaki” by Jonouchi in the first chapter, by the way.
Close friends can also call each other by their last name. It depends on the person and how comfortable they feel about that, or at least that’s how I understand it.
Bakura might not be as close to the rest of the gang as they are to each other, but they’re still close. As someone said in another post, they took him everywhere on the manga (only for the Spirit of the Ring to take over at some point), and they still cared about him in the anime. Even here you can see Jonouchi and Yugi about to try to stop him, if that matters.
That said, Bakura is still excluded and alone. However (at least how I see it anyway), it has less to do with the gang excluding him and a lot more with the poor guy being unfortunate enough to be chosen as the host of an evil spirit.
Wait…who said stupid fat ass? Lol was that bakura?
