Show Summary

Set a generation into the future, Yu-Gi-Oh! GX revolves around a boy named Jaden Yuki as he begins his life at Duel Academy, owned by Kaiba Corp. While running late for his entrance exams, Jaden bumps into Yugi Muto, the King of Games! Seeing a Duel Disk and deck, Yugi thinks he must be a duelist, Jaden confirms this as he says he's on his way for his entrance exams for the Duel Academy. Yugi decides to give him a Winged Kuriboh card, saying it is a lucky card, and he wishes Jaden luck on his exams as he runs off.

As Jaden enters the school, he befriends Alexis Rhodes, Syrus Truesdale, Bastion Misawa, Zane Truesdale, and Chazz Princeton. Together they experience many adventures while trying to stop evil from spreading!

There are three dorms in Duel Academy, Obelisk Blue for the Elite, Ra Yellow for those with potential, and Slifer Red, for the drop outs.

    • I want more Gx

      I honestly hated Gx when it first came out because i was in love with the first one ,i was 9 years old back then and im Greek so u cant expect a anime to be good or even treaten good as a Tv programm ,so after 4 years of watching yugioh they throw me this new stuff, i was refusing to watch because i was mad , it took me 4 years to watch this show and i actually loved it idk how but its my favourite anime so far and its 2014 .Great characters expect syrus i would give him a 5 as a grade ,although he gets better after season 3. Great storyline and amazing duels and drama about friendship and love i think Jaden is the coolest protagonist with yusei and yami following ppl seem to rly hate it some time and im sure its because of the same reason i was hating when i was 9 :P i rly know that if u go and see it even the fucking dub version u will love it .The only negative for me is the how it ended 4kids didnt dub and the japanese ppl choosed to not finish the show properly because they had 5d's coming up but who cares , i hope they do a movie focusing on Gx now insted of yusei or yuma or yuya its just not fair to let Gx out and i dont think that it had bad veiws , ppl who chosed to not see it may have a negative idea about the show but that doesnt mean ppl who had brain to see it have to get left out.. I rly think it deserves more who clain its bad and what so ever are just stacken in the past and miss the original although thats so childish u cant say a show is bad just because u miss the original ,jesus . Shame on u and your families .moreless
    • *UPDATE AND EDIT* Just watched the Japanese subbed versions and it rocks.

      Yes, indeed. It's good, but not as good as the predecessor. But whatever. They had their own qualities.

      The japanese version is totally different than the dubbed version. The voices are great, and so is the dialogue. Although, about Syrus, I still can't decide since he sounds like a girl on the original version. And all of their voices are just like what I think they should be. (Except syrus)

      The original version lacks the butchering and wounds that 4Kids decided to make. No more childish moments (still it has some silly moments but it's far from bad), you can no longer see them fight like 6 year old kids. (Really, I'm disappointed on Nightshroud on the english dub).

      The japanese cultures are back, and the unnecessary censorship is gone and it makes the show more understandable.

      The music is also different, and it's nice! It ranges from alternative j-rock with synthesizers and some orchestra) that totally beats those ear-ache inducing guitar twangs. Also, the card layout (the card layout that 4Kids changes for some reason, the cards only display the attack and defense of the monster. No box to explain it's lore and effects), is same, just like the cards in real life.

      It still baffles me about the rules being disregarded in here. Why do they always set a monster in a face-up defense position? It should be the opposite, unless with the help of spell and trap cards. But other than that, the show is watchable.

      I'm actually taking my time to watch all of it's episodes now.moreless
    • Top Shows - Prefer subtitle version

      Season 1, more of the manga (05-13)
    • A Great Yu-Gi-Oh! Spinoff

      I really thought GX was great. I never thought it was bad at all. The dub is bad and incomplete with plot holes etc, but the original Japanese version is worth watching. A great show, great characters and nice duels.
    • My top favorite Yu-Gi-Oh! Spin-Off

      I love this series so much my favorite Duel Set is Elemental Heroes and my dinosaur pets in World of Warcraft are named after Tyranno Kenzan (Tyranno Hassleberry in the English dub). The show is about a school for Duel Monsters and the Slifer Red student, Jaden Yuki.

      While Jaden's not as serious as Yami Yugi from the original, they both strongly value friendship which allows Jaden to have many friends.

      While the series started out humorous, the series got darker as the seasons went.

      One of the reasons I started hating 4Kids is when they canceled GX prematurely to start with 5Ds, which also ended prematurely. Hopefully with Konami running the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise, maybe Zexal won't suffer the same fate.moreless
