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.

  • 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.

  • The show that makes: Card Games on Motorcycles Work!

    The lastest installment of the Yu-Gi-Oh timeline this show puts us into a modern age where rich and poor are separated, this is Domino City. The domain for the first Yu-Gi-Oh show and mentioned in parts in Gx Domino City has become adept to the class system where the poor live in one area and the rich in another. This is the only life our protagonist Yusei Fudo knows growing up in this run down area has hardened his courage and personality which is shown on many occasions, the writers have empolyed the serious waste-no-time type for the main character of the series but have done so effectivly, the series brings many new characters to light from the wise cracking Leo to the mysterious Akiza each has their own reason to be present in a situation, and their pasts are all part of their characters some- no most are sad back stories that could easily get the tears rolling in some people. Now one thing I did not expect to go so darn well was the whole card games on motocycles thing, when I first heard that this was the next big thing I was like: Uh...no. but after seeing it in action it made me realise that it would work out perfectly and cleanly, the new strategies are endless and the motorcycle designs are just phenominal of course it does have it's idle duels now and then even the fast paced action of card games at 200 mph would get boring eventually. The show has some very strong plots that can easily be remembered if you would want to recall them, they are creative and create a whole legion of villans for the heroes to fight. Unlike the other Yu-Gi-Oh series' this show produces more hints of romance between characters ever, it has sent shipping clubs crazy but at the same time the writers have kept an indefinate lid on romance for now. Overall the show is defiately the one-to-watch for any Yu-Gi-Oh fans out there reading this, the show gets a perfect rating from me, love the show.moreless
