    boy is this show awesome i remember when it first aired it helped me get over for my loss in interest in poke'mon when joto ended,i even have lots yu-gi-oh cards even though i have never duel nobody,the show sure was awesome until gx came around,now i really did enjoy that series and new cards to play with and then 5d's came around that series was really great with all new cards to play with but the show went bad when zexal came around because the new kid named yuma can't duel his way out of paper bag he would lose to the likes of yugi moto,jayden yugi and yusei fudo,i hope somewhere that there will be some kind of crazy great battle where all of these guys come in and take down the villian because something like that would be something i would look foreward to,oh just a thought even though it will never happen what if a live action yu-gi-oh movie was made? that right there would take yu-gi-oh to a whole new this was just a thought.

  • So bad it's good for me.

    7.0
    Whether you're watching the original subtitled version or the completely laughable English Dub, Yu Gi Oh is a show that i can compare to such films as The Room and Birdemic: Shock and Terror. The plot is immensely stupid, the characters are annoying and stupid, and the premise of duelists getting out of dangerous situations by cheating at a card game aimed at elementary schoolers is implausible. But i will say that watching the anime, especially the 4Kids dub, makes me laugh at how idiotic the anime is and it does leave a good feeling inside of me. My only real complaint is that all of the characters are stereotypical. For example;

    Yugi is the stereotypical bland protagonist

    Joey and Tristan are the stereotypical hilarious sidekicks

    Tea is the stereotypical love interest

    and Kaiba is the stereotypical unlikeable antagonist.

    But like i said my enjoyment usually comes at how non-sensical and weird the anime is, its an anime that's so bad it's good. But compared to the spinoffs, Yu Gi Oh seemed like it was written by Stanley Kubrick himself.

    6.0
    I'm sure this series is better than it's dubbed counterpart (as usual), but that doesn't mean it's the best. After this one went off and the others came in it got outshined. This series mainly gets a lot of the praise from the ones who watched it as kids when it was on tv and it's a bad thing. (going by the dub) For one when it's based on the dueling it's ok then it turns shit when they go off from what the card actually does. Atem basically cheats in a lot of his duels while playing with a deck that is pretty impractical to play with. Yugi is so under developed that the only thing you would remember is him being the doll for the spirit, the short one, that's it; only in the final season does he really get some concrete growth. Joey is Joey, his sister is the real problem; she's absolutely useless to the story and she could have stayed in the hospital no one would have cared. Yes she was Joey's goal in the BCT arc, but she didn't need to be there, her only reason FOR being there was so Tristen and Devlin could stay in the show since they were useless too. Tea Garner is the so not so love interest girl that has so spout something about friendship whenever the heavy gets to Atem and Joey.

    The arcs, I have to say that the best one is a filler arc, the one where the Orichalcos is introduced,BTC arc took too long to end, Pegasus Kingdom or whatever made me really say bullshit to what they were doing, Noah's filler arc could have been left out all together, the others I didn't mention pretty much deserved it. The final arc is under the Orichalcos one in entertainment since we finally got to see the Millenium World and Atem's name wasfinally said and it was the end to the series with one of the best duels in the show. 4 parter Yugi vs Atem.

    Oh yeah, Kaiba was a total asshat with a weird Blue Eyes fetish, I don't get the appeal except from the abridged series. The Shadow Realm was a threat but not much since to bring the person back all you have to do is beat the person who sent them there.

    It's dub for 4kids is actually ok compared to the other shit they dubbed (thank you Funimation for being made).

    Overall this series is a soft 6 with me.moreless
