Synopsis

The story takes place in the near future in a city called Heartland. Tsukumo Yuma is a young duelist who strives to become the Duel Monsters champion, despite being an amateur. One day, during a duel with a school bully, a mysterious spirit called Astral appears before Yuma, and helps him to win. Astral then explains to Yuma that he is searching for his lost memories, which have been transformed into 99 "Xyz Monster" cards called "Numbers" and have been scattered across the globe. The "Numbers" have the ability to possess the duelists who own them and bring out their darkest desires. In order to recover his memories, and collect the "Numbers" cards, Astral teams up with Yuma.

I've always been a big fan of the Yu-Gi-Oh! series. Each iteration managed to improve upon it's predecessors, while still keeping things "fresh". Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's pushed the envelope with its outrageous concept (Riding Duels) and it succeeded. Coupled with strong characters and a great storyline, 5D's is easily my favourite of the series. It taught me to not judge a book by its cover, so I kept an open mind towards Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal. While Zexal does manage to have many good things going for it, it completely disregards what has continually improved in each series: characters.

When Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal first released, it brought about many skeptics, and I was one of those skeptics. Felling obligated as a fan of the TCG and Manga, I watched the first 10 episodes of Zexal with not much thought in my mind. Soon-after, my apathy for the series shrank and my love for the series was much like the Grinch's love for Christmas, and my heart grew 3 sizes in one episode.

The main characters share a similar personality Yugioh Zexal is based on a card game. Yugioh is known world wide and is popular. Yuma and Rekka both love to eat. When their stomach is full when they become awesome.
