Show Summary

In the futuristic city of New Domino, a brand new set of duels called Turbo Duels are the popular style of dueling. These duels use motorcycle like vehicles known as Duel Runners and usually take place on a set course. In the run down Satellite sector, Yusei Fudo plans to escape to New Domino City and reclaim his most powerful card that was stolen by his rival Jack Atlas. However, once Yusei arrives in the city he becomes wrapped up in a plot run by Sector Security Director Rex Goodwin. Goodwin is trying to gather certain duelists in order for them to save the world, but his methods are anything but ordinary. Once gathered, these special duelists, known as The Signers, must band together in order to stop a threat that threatens the safety of the world.

  • Good Extension of the Series!

    The new concepts are exciting, but all-in-all it fails to top the classics.
  • The real YuGiOh Is Better. :c

    I miss the real YuGiOh! I hate these spin-offs...
  • This show is better in Japanese.

    I didn't start to like 5D's until about 2010. First with the butchered dub, but the Japanese version is definitely superior. The acting is amazing, the music is perfect and it was a wonderful Yu-Gi-Oh! spinoff. This should have been the last one. But the CGI and D-Wheels take a while to get used to. And Yusei pretty much became one of my favourite anime characters. Whenever you watch the show, watch it in Japanese raw or subbed, never watch it dubbed. It's a disgrace.moreless
  • Yu-Gi-Oh good

    Yu-Gi-Oh is the best
  • Although you aren't able to see this in actual 5D, it's still worth your time.

    Before I get serious on reviewing anything about Yugioh 5Ds, let me just say one thing.

    The theme song rocks!! Now anyways, Yugioh 5Ds centers around a orphaned boy named Yusei Frodo, raised in the Satellite, the future version of Domino City. who attempts to get his Stardust Dragon card back from Jack Atlas, the champion of Domino City. The plot is actually original and carried out well, with the indivisual plot sequences in each episode interesting. Each episode is also fleshed out, dark and emotional. There is a variety of characters, with each all well developed, character development throughout the show. For some reason, the second season and then on focuses mainly on Yusei and Jack, with the other characters being side characters or not appearing at all. Now the action sequences, which were all the main parts of each episode, were the duels which were decent and well choreographed. The one thing that I didn't like about the duels, and the one thing I didn't like in general about the show, was the new addition of the motorcycles. Although they do tie in well with the whole "speed counters" idea, the motorcycle idea just didn't agree with me. Don't know why...

    Ultimately, Yugioh 5Ds though not as good as the original, is still a great Yugioh show, with well developed characters, dark and emotional plot sequences, and well choreographed duels, even if the motorcycle idea is a bit odd.
