That was actually a pretty fun episode, and while I don't really understand the game all too much yet, it looks like it has potential. Seems pretty light hearted compared to Yugioh, but I don't think that will stop it from possibly becoming an actual card game as well.
Well....that was dry. I mean, at least Yu-Gi-Oh! had the supernatural element going for it (that, and YGO's original intent was not to advertise a card game). The characters are cliched, the animation is sloppy, and the card game rules are REALLY FREAKING CONFUSING. I'll give it another episode (after all, this just screams of an anime to watch on Saturday mornings), but it doesn't have me hooked. At all.
The episode was decent, i'm interested in the gameplay and the art seems well done. I don't get why people call this a clone of yugioh...there are similarities between them but i wouldn't call it a clone. looking forward to the next episode
seriously, you know the show is bad when the animation looks worse than professional newgrounds cartoons. not only that, but the game doesn't look interesting...at all. i'm sorry, but the only reason this show exists is to sell a dumb card game. at least yugioh attempts a plot (as idiotic as it is).
After having dropped this after like 6 eps, I'm revisiting it b/c they've posted the dub on youtube.
I initially dropped it b/c I couldn't take Aichi's voice anymore!
I tried, the show itself started to get pretty interesting, and I like the game, but dat voice @_@!!!
The Singapore dub isn't the best dub, but I still find it enjoyable.
I think everyone's voice is pretty good, except Kai's.
It should sound cockier, and not so monotone, maybe it will get better when he gets more excited about playing.
But, the dub is good enough to actually watch it.
It seems they're streaming it on youtube, b/c no networks in the states/Canada would pick it up?
Not a surprise if that is the case, b/c they kept all the original names, and stayed very faithful to the Japanese language when they translated it.
That's a plus for me, I hate when they Americanize the crap outta these shows.
But, it would be cool to get this on tv in the states.
Maybe if the game gets popular 4kids will pick it up.
Hopefully they post the full season on youtube, and dub the second season and post it as well
Is anyone even subbing the second season?
I'm up to episode 42 at the moment. But I figured I should start here for my first comment. I didn't know there were discussions about animes like this going on. The first episode was a bit slow, and to be honest I dropped it for a month or two before coming back to it.
I like card games like this having been playing Magic since Revised, and I've tried Yugioh, Star Trek, Pokemon etc. I actually found I like this show better then the Yugioh anime once I gave it a decent chance.
Seems to me like they're trying to copy yugioh, but I did like the series and card game so maybe I'll enjoy watching this. Halfway through, I was even considering buying a starter deck and seeing if I can try to learn this game! hehe.
