Episode Summary

EDIT
Aknadin tried to explain to Seto about why he should be pharaoh and offered him Egypt of he joined him. Seto still refused and Kisara found him and offered to help him fight. Aknadin tried to get rid of her, but Kisara summoned the White Dragon to fight back. When Pharaoh showed up, Aknadin possessed Seto and tried to fight the Pharaoh. Kaiba showed up to watch the fight from a distance, still thinking it was a dream. Kisara helped Seto fight Aknadin from the inside and gave up her life to seal the White Dragon within a stone tablet, destroying Aknadin in the process. Meanwhile, Yugi and the others came into another puzzle room where Yugi was to give up the wish he received from the Millennium Puzzle in order for them to live. But Yugi wished for friends and he didn’t want to get rid of his friends, but they managed to escape before going to the pit of shadows. At the end, Tristan reveled that he was possessed by Bakura and the hourglass was out of sand, which meant Zorc was being summoned.moreless

  • A interesting episode....but of course the original kicked its behind.

    6.3
    One of the more interesting episodes, I must say. I\'m sure every single Kaiba fangirl are going to be going nuts because Seto had a so called \"love interest.\"



    However, the dubbing was dismal, but at least they showed Seto with tears in his eyes.....



    The dub sucked this completely dry, taking most of the emotional baggage out and placing it in a blender, transforming it into a suitable for kiddies feature. Still, the battle of destiny was pleasing to watch, and there were some real sweet moments there too between Seto and Kisara. And Kaiba did comment on Kisara being his past selves "girlfriend." So...he did see them as a couple.moreless
  • Dub was Trash. Original was WAY better. The crappy shadow realm was the worst part. There were only certain parts I liked though.

    Well, of course, They edited Kisara's death by the crappy shadow realm again. The shadow realm was the worst part though. As I said In my summary: "Dub was Trash, Original was better. There were only certain parts I liked though. Go to http://www.yu-jyo.net for a list of edits. Bye!~
  • Even though, the White Dragon is sealed in stone, Kisara is still able to defeat Aknadin for good and save Seto's life. Meanwhile, Yugi and the others have discovered that Tristan has been working for Bakura all this time. To make matters worse, Zorc is rmoreless

    Here's a moment I know that nobody (myself, included) will forget any time soon: Ancient Seto crying over Kisara!!





    - Maybe that is why the Blue-Eyes-White Dragon is Kaiba's (Ancient Seto's descendant, probably)favorite duel monster, because of Kisara.



    - "But why doesn't Kaiba remember Kisara, you ask?" Maybe he lost his memory, just like the Pharoah did.
  • A pretty good episode but the crappy Shadow Realm comes back in.

    8.0
    Like I said, a good episode but I hate the "Sent to the Shadow Realm" crap! One of the sad parts is that Kisara died! I like Kisara. Plus Aknadin dies but he was really annoying so I really didn't care that he died. One thing that made me mad was that in the past they keep making the Pharaoh's battle with Seto seem like such an important thing thing yet the fight was like 2 minutes long, totally dumb. Plus antoher good thing is that Yami Bakura returns and he wants a duel. I enjoy his duels and it's been awhile since he dueled!,moreless
  • Sad and tragically sweet... ...But also a dubbing/editing disgrace... It seemed to me the episode lost its meaning...

    8.5
    This episode was sad. Besides the fact that Kisara died, but 4kids completely ruined it! It was a disgrace to Kisara's sacrifice and memory. Why did they have to cut out the part where Seto tried to avenge Kisara by trying kill Akhenaden? Or the part where Seto had cried when mourning for her death? He CRIED! The ONE out of character thing he did in the original series and 4kids had the NERVE to cut it out after all the OOCness (out of character) they did to Seto and Kaiba and most of the other characters!!



    You could tell that this episode looked like it was 'cut' and 'paste' to make the scenes fit together in the way 4kids horribly edits the show.



    And what's the deal with making Kaiba always seem like he's a pompous jerk? He is supposed to be nicer to Atemu now. Or making Joey always seem like he's stupid? Don’t get me wrong; I love humor as much as the next person but sometimes the comments he makes aren’t funny at all. They’re just plain moronic!



    Some positive notes:



    Sad that Kisara died but beautiful and sweet she did it all for Seto just to save him from his father, Akhenaden. Even in death she saved him! She had so much loyalty towards him, so loyal that she was willing to give up her life for him. Now the Blue-Eyes White Dragon will always be with Seto as if it were a Blue-Eyes White Guardian Angel, you could say. In a way, even though Kisara’s body is gone, her spirit lives on with Seto through the Blue-Eyes White Dragon, forever protecting him. Romantic, isn’t it? This is the reason why Kaiba must feel attached to the Blue-Eyes White Dragons in the first place.



    Conclusion:



    'Name of the Game' was intense and somewhat tragic if you ignore all that useless editing 4kids had done. I’m not saying I didn’t like the episode. It was great, but I can’t stand it when major details get edited for such bad reasons. The story loses its originality and moral when the original plot gets changed. It’s just not the same no more. And it can be the most infuriating thing ever! ‘Name of the Game’ would have been a tearjerker if it weren’t so badly edited.moreless
