    They are both harsh but at least you can come back from the Shadow Realm

    I agree. I cried when I thought Ryou was dead. Good thing he's not.

    If it's not too much for you guys, we'd appreciate it if you could type things out so it's easier to understand. Example:
    In the manga you get tortured to death. In the anime you're just trapped in the shadow realm like prison.

    Thanks. (it'll help you in life in general if you do that all the time, too)

    Death is better! Shadow realm doesn't make sense half the time. Joey after Ra attacked? Malik didn't exactly walk up to him and go "hyaa!" with the rod like he did to Mai. It was a little odd for there to be shadow realm involved with Jou. People get plenty tortured when they're going to die. Mai got eaten by bugs! (silly anime and its watered down version--bugs actually makes Doom make sense!) Ryou... okay, that's the one that I actually DON'T get in the uncut. As far as I can tell, the penalty game was to... disappear?
    A more accurate question would be Shadow Realm vs. Penalty Game, really, because not everyone dies after losing a yami no game. In the manga, Kaiba got trapped in a card and mind crush'd, Mokuba got put in a Capsule Monster thingy, whatshisface got fed to the dragon jar, Ushio got money'd, that TV guy got pixelate'd, etc.

    I agree that it's overused, but it's an okay concept that I liken to the Dark Ocean in Digimon02.

    Yeah, the concept is cool, just the way it was executed in Yugioh wasn't always so great. (afraid I don't remember the Dark Ocean... which is odd, because I saw that season of Digimon) Anything where the person wasn't going to die actually made it easier to understand by just lumping it together as "shadow realm". All the rare hunter duels, Jou vs. Malik, and everyone in season 5 should all have been death, though.

    Here's my vote - death.

    The Shadow Realm isn't canon.

    Nothing 4KIDS creates is canon XD
