The Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's manga is a spin-off of its anime series. Like the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX manga, the events that take place, as well as the cards used by characters differ from those in the anime. It is published monthly in the V Jump magazine in Japanese, and has been released in English via the Shonen Jump magazine starting with the January 2011 issue. The author of the manga is Masahiro Hikokubo and the artist of the manga is Masashi Satō. The manga is supervised by Kazuki Takahashi.
The OCG Master Rules are used. The rules of Turbo Duels are changed; "Speed World" and "Speed Spells" are not required. Also, monsters are not Set and Flip Summoned, but Normal Summoned in face-up Defense Position instead.

Unlike the anime, Yusei Fudo and Jack Atlas have no history between them. However, Yusei has still managed to acquire a criminal mark. Akiza Izinski is a popular student at the Queen's Duel Academy, where she is known as the "Queen of Queens". She lost to Jack at one point, which still upsets her. A number of people have lost Duels to Jack and are looking for rematches.
Sect faces Yusei in a Turbo Duel in a Satellite factory. Yusei wins, but is impressed by Sect's performance and accepts Sect as his rival. Afterwards Sect is taken captive by the Skeleton Knight. Yusei defeats the Skeleton Knight in a Turbo Duel in order to save Sect.
As Yusei rushes Sect to the hospital, he is confronted by Jack Atlas, who forces him into a Turbo Duel. Yusei abandons the Duel to save Sect after he falls from the back of the Duel Runner. Jack continues and wins the Duel, leaving Yusei and Sect fall into a body of water. Yusei manages to get Sect to the hospital afterwards. As he repairs his Duel Runner, he meets Lazar, who invites him to the D1 Grand Prix.
Akiza defeats Ran Kobayakawa in a Turbo Duel over the title "Queen of Queens". Afterwards, she hears that Jack is in Satellite, so she travels there hoping to find Jack. She instead finds Yusei, who she learns dueled Jack. She faces him in a One-Shot Run to find out more.
Throughout the Duel Sherry was able to counter everyone of Akiza's moves with the use of her psychic ability "Hand Scan". However Akiza was able to block Sherry's "Hand Scan" by closing her eyes and she eventually won the duel.
The third match was Crow Hogan against Bolt Tanner. Before the match began, Crow mentions to Yusei that they are going to get along great. Crow manages to impress everyone by performing a double synchro summon and defeat Bolt using a First Turn Kill.
The next day the second round of the D1 Grand Prix starts. Yusei faces Hunter Pace as his next opponent. During the duel Yusei finds out that his Duel Runner is unable to accelerate. This is because the night before, Hunter Pace sneaked into Yusei's garage and ripped out a part from his Duel Runner. This, along with the effects of Hunter's monsters put Yusei at a serious disadvantage. But despite the odds, Yusei manages to win.
As this Duel was going on, Sect finds out from Hunter's gang that they were the ones who stole the part from Yusei's Duel Runner and gets into a fight with them. Hunter's gang managed to get the upper hand at first but Sect's rare card infects him with darkness allowing him to defeat the gang easily.
Following this, Akiza next match is about to start with her opponent being Kalin Kessler. Throughout the Duel, Kalin uses his "handless combo" to push Akiza into a corner. But she manages to fight back using her hidden ace, Rosaria, the Stately Fallen Angel, a monster that she was saving for Jack. Kalin counters this with his own ace monster, Void Ogre Dragon and using its effect, he defeats Akiza causing her to drop out of the tournament.
While this duel was going on, Jack finds Sect and challenges him to a duel for his shadow card. Yusei appears between the two and trys to convince Sect to stop the duel but Sect refuses as he believes Yusei is looking down on him for being weak. Sect continues the duel and summons the new card he got from the skeleton knight, Beelze, King of Dark Dragons. To Jack's disappointment, it isn't the card he is looking for but he fights back using Dark Highlander. However before the duel can continue any further, the Skeleton Knight appears and takes Sect away so he can master the powers of darkness. Before he disappears, Sect vows to uses his powers to defeat Yusei and Jack and anyone else who looked down on him.
After this Kalin appears before Yusei and Jack. He reveals to Jack that he has the card Jack is looking for, Jeweled Red Dragon Archfiend. Jack walks toward Kalin with the intent of taking back his card but as he does so the "Jeweled Red Dragon Archfiend" card begins to cause Kalin's Duel Disk to malfunction. Kalin rips up the card as he said it is nothing more than a copy. Jack starts to become angry, demanding to know where the "Jeweled Red Dragon Archfiend" card is but before he could punch Kalin, Yusei stops him as a card like that is the reason Sect changed and despite that he will save Sect. Yusei wants to know more about the Duel Dragons from both of them. Kalin merely responds that both of them are qualified to play the game for the Duel Dragons.
Meanwhile back at the stadium two kids have just defeated their 5th opponent in the tournament and a missle from one of their monster's attacks is about hit the audience. However Crow uses his "Blackwing Tamer - Hawk Joe" to intercept it. Rex Goodwin appears on a giant hologram and informs everyone that two kids Leo and Luna are eliminators he hired to defeat and weed out the weak duelists. Afterwards he informs everyone that the second stage of the D1GP will start soon and it will take place in satellite. Back with Yusei, Kalin, and Jack, Kalin tells both of them that the showdown will take place in Satellite.
During the night, Yusei is working on his duel runner along with Crow when they are approached by the twins and they challenge Yusei to a duel while revealing that they have information about the duel dragons. Yusei accepts the duel, seeing it as way to save his best friend.
The Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's chapters are called "Rides", so, instead of "Chapter 1", you should look for "Ride 1", for example.
