The card game "Duel Monsters" has become all the rage in Domino City. The rules are simple: two players, known as "Duelists," fight each other with the monster cards they have collected in their decks and deduct Life Points. Each Duelist starts with a total of two thousand Life Points, and whoever loses all of them first is defeated in the battle.

One day, a timid boy named Shougo Aoyama buys a deck that contains the "Red Eyes Black Dragon," a legendary card said to bring victory to those courageous enough to fight. Soon, word of the card in Shougo's hands begins to spread, eventually reaching the competitive Duelist Seto Kaiba. Desiring to collect the strongest cards in any way possible, Kaiba invites Shougo and his rival Yuugi Mutou to a Duel Monsters tournament—but will Shougo be able to overcome his fear of losing?

This was my childhood right here. Growing up, this anime always gave me excitement and always left me on the edge of my seat.

If you enjoy sexy characters, with a mix of cute, funny, and kindness, then this show will truly open your heart up to anime.

If you love the Yugioh classics like I do, then this action packed anime of duel monsters is for you!

Okay, so why is it that Kaiba wants this Red Eyes card SO BAD? Seriously, Kaiba is so rich, he's able to hire personal security, owns limousines, CREATED A DUEL MONSTERS THEMED THEME PARK, and an entire expo center complete with 3D holographic animated versions of the duel monsters game, and owns his own corporation
and the mother f*r still can't go to the game shop and buy booster packs.

No. He has to go to the extreme lengths of setting up a contest in an enormous expo center, inviting thousands of onlookers ...

Yugioh 1999 is hardly a movie at all since it's only half an hour long. So it's pretty much just a 30-minute commercial for the manga and/or card game. As a Yugioh fan I still got some sort of enjoyment out of this, so let's start with the story of this so-called movie:

A little boy named Shougo Aoyama finds a powerful card called Red-Eyes Black Dragon, but he is too scared to actually "fight" (aka play a card game), so he just doesn't use the card at all. Kaiba wants to have the card, so he invites Yugi, Shogo, and some other duelists to a ...
