Yu-gi-oh! is just a advertisement so young children can go out, waste money and buy the cards. I liked it, but then I got so bored with it. I like to play the card game now and then (also the only card game I understand!!). Also, I thought the first volume of the manga was good. =) It is alot better than its spinoff, I have to say.
Also, the plot is basically the same. Yugi-kun acts like it is the end of the world when he loses a duel. I mean, come on. It's a card game. IT'S PAPER WITH A PRETTY PICTURE ON IT THAT IS DEPENDING LIFE OR DEATH. Friendship is a strong and powerful thing, but they use too much of it! =( You might wanna cut down on the friendship speeches and hugs and the HUGGING...! So MUCH OF IT!! O_O
Koori-chan, I agree with you. Don't the characters have another life other than a card game? o_O It would be nice if they did something different for a change...really...>>
