Yeah not bad. It is on TV here, but I think it's a bit weird that they translate it into English. They even have a tournament in New york Madison Sq Garden.

YuGiOh is awesome in japanese! 4Kids killed it though. I swear Yugi's voice is going to crack everytime he speaks. Originally it was rated +16 and up, so they really edited a lot out of it for the one on tv. 😭 LONG LIVE KAIBA SETOH!

it's featured in shonen jump, but i'm really not impressed by it (talking draftsmanship/proportion/perspective)
it and shaman king are part of the reason i'm not bothering to renew the sub -- rather just buy the tankoubans when they come out
but definitely more power to those that do/are

I've actually read the manga version. Got an issue of shonen jump.:) I liked it better then the anime version, except for Mokuba. He looked a little scary. o_O All around yugioh is a pretty decent show. True, 4kids messes up the translation very badly. But when has it translated shows well. cough pokemon cough. Just as an example. I' m really surprised they keep yugioh interesting because it is mainly based off a card game.

I read the manga before but I didn't really like it untill I play the Yu-gi-oh game on GBA then I watched the anime on TV once, I just love it.;) I think the game is quite interesting though.🙂

I don't really know yu-gi-oh, but a short time ago, it was mentioned on tv for parents to take care that their kids don't spend too much money on the yu-gi-oh card game.

I'm more of a closet fan of Yugioh.😊
An addictive lil' series isn't it?
I prefer the original version better (from the way I see it who DOESN'T) though. But for some reason or another I usually end up watching dueling monster mania at its best anyway. Something about Yami Yugi's unusually deep voice gets me.
Are the voice actors trained to use hypnotism? :mad:

:giggle: What I mean is that when Yugi turns from "boy to man" his voice gets really deep and it's kinda hypnotic!
Dark Magician woohoo!!👏
If you ask me...I prefer the Yami versions! And I'm kinda liking Yugi's outfits too..😏

What?
I watch too much TV-nyo.:p

Excuse me while I go swab the decks!

Has anyone played the gba games before? I like the pokemon game better than the show itself. I've gotten up to silver but I'd like to get crystal. I was wondering if the yugioh game is worth it. most times it isn't.

Well, I've to admit I play magic the gathering (the card game) for 9 years (luckily, I know some guys aged around 30 playing it, so I don't feel too silly still playing it), and thus I know of the yu-gi-oh card game too.
It seems to be a wave-like the pokemon-cardgame. It is trendy now and in a year or too slowly dying, like the pokemon card game, for many reasons.
That reminds me... I should get some Japanese mtg cards and play with them to train my Japanese. :)

2- Seto Kaiba
3- Yami Bakura--the spirit of the ring
4- Marik--not the evil dude, MARIK...not Malik
5-good Bakura...aka Ryou
