... For as much as I raged I can't come to sage a Yugioh thread. I will admit that this show sucks when you compare it to other anime, but when you compare it to other run of the mill shonen it really isn't that bad. Despite the unbelievably stupid card game playing plot, the characters are extremely well developed and has had relatively short filler seasons for a show that is over 200 episodes long. Also the fanbase is loyal and batshit insane, but in a way that is almost lovable. As far as other anime go, is Yugioh Duel Monsters the best? Fuck no. But compared to other crazy popular anime here in the United States that has been saturated by 4Kids and to most other shonen titles, it is awesome.
