    Favorite Anime #10: Yugioh

    Plot/Summary:
    Yu-Gi-Oh! tells the tale of Yugi Mutou, a timid young boy who loves all sorts of games, but is often bullied around. One day, he solves an ancient puzzle known as the Millennium Puzzle (千年パズル, Sennen Pazuru), causing his body to play host to a mysterious spirit with the personality of a gambler. From that moment onwards, whenever Yugi or one of his friends is threatened by those with darkness in their hearts, this other Yugi shows himself and challenges them to dangerous Shadow Games (闇のゲーム, Yami no Gēmu, lit. “Games of Darkness”) which reveal the true nature of someone’s heart, the losers of these contests often being subjected to a dark punishment called a Penalty Game (罰ゲーム, Batsu Gēmu). Yugioh created by Kazuki Takahashi.

    Whether it be cards, dice, or role-playing board games, he will take on challenges from anyone, anywhere. As the series progresses, Yugi and his friends learn that this person inside of his puzzle is actually the spirit of a nameless Pharaoh from Ancient Egyptian times, who had lost his memories. As Yugi and his companions attempt to help the Pharaoh regain his memories, they find themselves going through many trials as they wager their lives facing off against gamers that wield the mysterious Millennium Items (千年アイテム, Sennen Aitemu) and the dark power of the Shadow Games. The anime genres are action, comedy and fantasy. Yugioh is a card game also like how it’s played in the anime where you strategize the moves until you loose life points.

    What I think of the anime:
    Definitely rate the anime ten stars out of ten stars as it’s very enjoyable to watch in my opinion also I recommend to anyone that’s never seen it before as you might like it too or you might not like it, guess it just depends on your preferences too. I’ve read there’s eleven series but I’ve only watched two series out of the eleven that’s listed on Wikipedia even rewatched two of those series more than once. I’ve also watched the two movies. I don’t remember when I first started watching the anime but it was probably during my middle school days. When I couldnt find anything good to watch I would rewatch either of the two series I like or one of the movies.

    I used to play Yugioh Duel Generations before the game retired in September 2020 and where actual cards are now needed to play the game but since I don’t have cards of my own I had to quit playing it. Yami Yugi, Bakura and Seto Kaiba are my three favorite male characters in the anime. Aigami is my favorite from the Yugioh: Dark Side of Dimensions movie and Yusei Fudo is my favorite from Yugiog 5Ds. I haven’t seen the other series yet but I’m sure they would be awesome to watch. Not much else to say to say about the anime. If anyone have seen Yugioh before I would like to know what you thought of it. I’m curious what you think of the anime. Comment your thoughts if you’d like.
