The world of Duel Masters is one of five great civilizations. Through a card game, duelists can bring these worlds into existence, making what was previously abstract into reality. These skilled duelists are known as Kaijudo masters.

Shobu Kirifuda is the best player at his local playground, and seeks to become a world-class master like his father. His first step on the road to conquest begins with winning a local tournament. Rather, it should have, except he is destroyed by the best Kaijudo master in the world, Knight. Shobu loses, but upon remembering the words of wisdom his father instilled into him, decides to continue on the road of becoming a duelist who can enjoy the game for what it is. And so begins his journey to victory-and as we all know, the journey is the most important part!

Well, it's been a while since I wrote a review and so far I've only wrote reviews about animes I like. Today I felt like talking about an anime that I didn't like. That anime is called Duel Masters. Yes, Duel Masters. This Mediocre version of Kazuki Takahashi's Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters is completely horrible. This show makes Beyblade look good. Seriously.

+If you’re aged 12 or below, then you might actually like this anime.

+If you prefer Cartoon Network and Disney type cartoons over actual anime, then this is a real treat. The 3D creature animations are cool.

+The actual Duel Masters Trading Card Game isn’t half bad. I bought a few packs and played it with my friends around 7 years back. It’s pretty entertaining if you understand the concept.

+Dubbing is, to an extent, well done in English. No idea about the JAP version.

+The comedy is at a passable level and you find yourself laughing with AND at the show.

+And of course, read more

Well, the main focus of Duel Masters is to get the 5/9 year old kids. I remember enjoying Duel Masters when I was a kid but today when I look at it, I find it mediocre.

* Absolutely no work on the characters, soundtrack and design

* You could say a Yu-Gi-Oh rip-off mixed with a different story

* The basic concept of this show was to advertise their products and make kids buy dueling cards (I fell for that too, I have a lot od decks which I don't know what to do of now)

If I look at this Anime as a kid, I would give it read more
