Draconmouth: The Thoughts of Jaya Lakshmi

Jaya Lakshmi, also known as Draconmouth, has been a staple of Yuugiou Uncensored since its inception, with her great insight on 4Kids and anime in general.  After Kevin left Yuugiou Uncensored, I rewarded her for her years of dedication to the site by giving her a column.  Now, fans of the site can view her opinions and insight front-and-center with just one click of the mouse when arriving on Yuugiou Uncensored.  I hope you enjoy!
