Well, it kinda depends on what you're referring to...
The manga's pretty awesome, the anime's beyond butchered by WB and 4Kids, and I only collect the cards rather than play the game.

What's good about the manga, besides being totally uncut with none of this "sent to Shadow Realm" business, is that it's the earlier stories, how Yugi got to where he is. And also it's great that it isn't a 30-minute advertisement for the card game :p...plus we get to see more character development in it (Yugi/Anzu fans may definitely want to see the stories in this month's Shonen Jump).

I do watch the anime, but I sometimes feel embarrassed to watch it at times, with the subpar voice-acting, and the fact that 4Kids and WB are afraid of just about any perilous situations (for God's sakes, they allow guns to appear in American cartoons!! friggin biased FCC...), when half the time, noone even dies! Such as the Yugi vs. Arcana duel, and the Yugi/Kaiba vs Lumis/Umbra duel....the good guys won, and the villians either were saved or passed out or whatever happened :P
I mean, there are a few good points. The animation's pretty good at times, despite a few instances of off-looking characters and mostly-motionless monsters. The music's pretty decent, though I haven't heard much of the Japanese version's, so I can't really compare the two; but the American music sets a pretty good mood for it's respective situations....well, except for a few of the original songs that were placed in every so often.

I like the anime. The "enter the shadow realm" thing I'd just like to be over. I like the battle city finals the best. I've only seem the american versions butn from what I've heared the japenese versions atre much better.

The last episode I saw was about the Battle City Finals. It was the episode where Marik and Bakura were dueling. Marik used Monster Reborn to revive Ra and used it's "secret powers" or "abilities" to send Bakura and part of Marik to the Shadow Realm. I love the fact that Bakura is part of the Shadow Realm and he can control it. It is so cool! :biggrin:

My favoite part of battle city was the duel between Mai and Marik, Mind game 1-3

That episode was awesome too. Wasn't it when Marik uses those monsters that hold Mai down? And when Yugi took tried to protect her? That was a cool episode. :biggrin:

It was definately cool! Joey was the first one to protect her and then Yu-gi protected them both when Ra was about to blast them.

I have to say, I enjoy this anime. I dont watch it as much as I used to, but I watch it whenever I can. (Only a 7% chance on saturdays, and 2% on weekdays.)

It's kinda stupid. It's just gonna end up like duel masters someday. The only episodes worth watching are Marik ones.

Ah...what an excellent series, one of my faves. Once we get past the whole Noa duel, it's really going to pick up...the rest of the Battle City Finals, and then the Orichalos-DOOM saga! :cool:

I can't wait for more of the series! It makes me want to... :dance:

Heh, I love Joey too. ^^ But yeah, I prefer the older episodes to the newer ones, I guess. Then again, new episodes are always a good thing. =b

YGO is definitely my favorite anime show; though I must say I LOATHE 4Kids' dub job (burns down 4Kids headquarters). I've learned to ignore the words the characters speak and focus on what they actually are trying to say...

Yeah, and I LOVE how they completely changed around the storyline (that was sarcasm, btw)... Marik doesn't want to rule the world as Pharaoh (he wants to be pharaoh, but not rule the world), his main goal is to kill Yugi/spirit of the puzzle because Marik thinks Yami killed his dad...("'Twas the Pharaoh's will..." -Shadii) when really "Yami" Marik committed the crime.
I was seriously yelling at the TV when Marik said his dad was sent to the "shadow realm" and that he thought Shadii did it.

And one last thing...'member Yami and Tea's date-- er, "meeting"? Tea asks Yami what he knows about himself, and he says "I know I came for Egypt." In the Japanese (I have DVDs! Whooho; I luv ya, eBay!), Yami's answer is "I have no idea who I am or where I'm from." (Oh yeah, and his name isn't even Yami; the whole point of YGO is that "Mou hitori no boku" ("The other me;" Yugi's name for "Yami.") is trying to figure out his name! Silly dubbers...No point of YGO now than as a 30minute commercial for the game...

But seriously, the Japanese is great. I suggest you buy the DVDs off eBay, but be careful-- Two of mine don't work on US Dvd players; there is a computer decoder you can download so you can play 'em on the comp, but I haven't done that yet.

One last thing (well, 3): Ishizu's ***. name is Isis, but it's still pronounced "Ishizu" by the Japanese, so it doesn't really matter. Also, Marik/Malik actually sounds Arab in the *** (Malik is pronunced MahL-reek). Lastly, take the best music you've heard in the american YGO and multiply by ten-thousand-billion, and that's the ***. music.

Okay, this really is the last thing: MARIK DOESN'T HAVE A YAMI! "Yami" Marik isn't the spirit of the M.Rod (& he didn't exsist in Egypt back w/ the others). Marik is not only bipolar (***. anime says so) but has Dissociative Identity Disorder (Thank you, Checkmate!), which kinda means the "Yami" is really a manisfestation of Marik's hatred towards his dad. I could elaborate, but I'm sick of typing and no one cares to listen to people rant.

Jisaku, could you please shorten your location? It's warping the whole thread.

Aside from that:
American YGO = tremendous crap
Japanese YGO = alright stuff
Japanese manga of YGO = good stuff

Any objections? :P

No objections here, Kenny. I hate the dubbed versions. :sad: *Goes on a rampage*

I'd have to agree that the Marik saga has been pretty good so far, despite 4Kids trying to butcher it. We've seen a whole heck of a lot of character development going on, and Marik and Odion's past was, to me, more interesting than half of the battles going on.
They really need to finish up that Noah saga, though.....talk about putting a halt to a good flowing pace -_-;

I have the Japanese versions of the following:

DK:
Yugi vs Joey
Yugi vs Pegasus (all of em)

I also have Yugi vs Bakura (DK) through one after Yugi vs Player Killer ("Panik"), but those DVDs...don't...work...in...American...DVD...player s...(Beats head against wall for spending $20 on stuff that doesn't work)

This is pretty sad, but I don't own any videos or DVDs and I still get my share of Yugioh. Am I missing anything by just watching the show on television besides getting the chance to watch it over and over and over and over and...

Crap! Those DVDs won't work!? ...would it be expensive to get a DVD player that CAN play them?

Thanks Jisaku.

And Zammy, the DVD players that play that cost less than a regular DVD player that you get in Best Buy. I'm serious, them crappy "chinese" players cost like 50 bucks Canadian and can play any freaking thing you put into it (DVDwise), problem is if it's broken/destroyed/malfunctioning/etc., you're out of 50 bucks, no questions (I mean, no repairs...or refunds). So...choice is yours.

As for the duel Marik vs. Yugi, it's still the topic of parodying...it's that horrible. (I mean almost all of the duels suck anyway...)

Well, I like Yu-Gi-Oh!
Personally, I like the manga more then the anime...
The Manga Beats the Anime's butt,
But the Japanese Version of the anime beats the dubs butt! XD

You know they sell uncut versions in stores, right? They sell uncut versions of both Yu-Gi-Oh! And Shaman King...>.>
