Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V centers around Yuya Sakaki, as he tries to escape from harsh reality by smiling. But one Duel leads him to make a determination to confront the difficulties and he will get the power of infinite possibilities. The show's main theme is "Take a step forward with courage!!"

Yuya is a student at a preparatory school, learning to become an "entertainment Duelist," a type of professional Duelist.

The story is set in Miami City on the coast of Japan. Leo Corporation is run by its president Reiji Akaba. Thanks to the spread of the company's "Solid Vision with mass," "Action Duels" are born in Miami City and has reached worldwide popularity. Children look up to star-level Pro Duelists, and they learn Summoning and Duel styles at various large and small cram schools, including the You Show Duel School that Yuya attends and the largest of such schools, Leo Duel School (LDS).

Great new Yu-Gi-Oh series, shows vast amount of promise with the foreshadowing and character development, almost as good as Yu-Gi-Oh Mugen (The best Yu-Gi-Oh ever).

Story - 8
Story unfold slowly, but since this is a review there is going to be spoilers, the beginning may make this seem like light-hearted, but in reality it is pretty dark with the true plot being an inter dimensional war. Foreshadowing are made in every new episode keeping things intriguing (also providing a lot of re-watch value), the pacing have no major flaw as of now. So far the plot is pretty well written and it actually make use of read more

Seriously, I always remember yugioh being a nerdy anime that only the fans liked (minus 5ds), when did it turn to PURE AWESOMENESS?

For the first time in years you finally get the feeling that Konami actually hired script writers instead of marketing advisors. And for the first time in years they are actually doing their job amazingly! In a future where the technology of Solid Vision has been invented, entertainment duelists battle along their monsters (which can actually harm them, for real) for the eyes of the crowd. Our protagonist, the son of a famous entertainer duelist, Yuya, lives with his overly horny mother after read more

I was about to drop the Yu-Gi-Oh anime series with Zexal. Seriously.
But Arc-V brought me back.
As a real life YGO player and an anime fan, I can say that this series satisfied me.

Story 7/10: The story is about a young boy named Yuya Sakaki trying to become as great as his father once was. It's pretty standard for a plot, but the way they developed it while including the three main card mechanic (Fusion/Synchro/XYZ) along with the new Pendulum Summon was good. It starts a bit slow and might not avoid confusion sometimes (even though it might just be intended).

Art 8/10: The animation read more

So this is my firtst review woo~~

First, if you cant stand card game animes, you are not missing anything here. This show is going to focus on the yu-gi-oh card game as always. Bye.

Anyway if are still reading and if you enjoy yu-gi-oh animes, give this show a try, as I didnt regret to start watching it. However, I find it not so good as 5 ds.

Story - 7: nothing really great so far. However we can hope for a later development like Zexal.

Art - 9: Yup it is great.

Sound - 6: sound duel is nice but the OP/ED are pretty forgettable.

Character - read more

Both have the same card based anime.

Both involves dueling in a card battle.


One was more of a shoujo type of card battle, while the other one was more of a unisex card battle.

In one anime the player can use multiple avatar, while in the other anime the play rely only on one avatar.
Both are themed around games that have a huge amount of impact on the real world. Also, magic revolves around the main characters (Shiroe is an enchanter, and Yuya is a magician).

Opening Theme

#1: "Believe X Believe" by Choutokkyuu (超特急, Bullet Train) (eps 1-30)
#2: "Burn!" by Choutokkyuu (eps 31-49)
#3: "UNLEASH" by Gekidan Niagara (eps 50-)

Ending Theme

#1: "One Step" by P☆Cute [Pendelum☆Cute (Masumi Kuratsushi & Ruri Shirosaki)] [闇津ますみ・白咲るり] (eps 1-30)
#2: "Future fighter" by Yuuya Sakaki x Reiji Akaba (Kensho Ono x Yoshimasa Hosoya) (eps 31-49)
#3: "ARC of Smile!" by BOYS AND MEN (eps 50-)
