Action Duels, which allow duelists to soar and swing alongside their Duel Monsters, are taking the world by storm. Due to an evolutionary breakthrough, the "Solid Vision" system is now able to provide Duel Monsters with mass.

Yuuya Sakaki is Yuusho Sakaki's son, the latter being the founder of You Show Duel School in Miami City. Yuusho insists that duels are not a tool of war, but rather are to bring smiles to people and thus introduced the concept of Entertainment Dueling. However, at the height of his fame, Yuusho disappears and fails to attend his duel with Strong Ishijima, the Action Duel champion. Although scarred by this sudden leave, Yuuya vows to become an Entertainment Duelist like his father.

Several years later, in the midst of a battle with Strong Ishijima, Yuuya's desperation to win brings forth a miracle. His pendant begins glowing, turning his cards into Pendulum Cards, which enables him to perform a Pendulum Summon—a summoning method unknown to the world and himself—gaining him fame overnight. As a result, Reiji Akaba, CEO of Leo Corporation and founder of the elite Leo Duel School, starts producing new Pendulum Cards to incorporate Pendulum Summoning into the system. Thus, the mysteries that surround Pendulum Summoning and Yuuya's father start to unravel, and Yuuya learns bit by bit what it takes to become an Entertainment Duelist.

In the case of the spoilers, I will be vague to try not to completely ruin all the surprises for someone who does choose to watch this series. That said, a lot of the big events of the story really have to be brought up at least in some form to explain why its so bad.

I imagine, especially for people who have not watched the series the whole way through, a 1/10 grade might come across as kind of extreme for this series. Technically speaking, it does have a functional and even expansive plotline, a good amount of buildup especially early read more

So Yugioh Arc-V is the fifth instalment into the Yugioh franchise, and, in my opinion, it is the best anime the franchise has to offer. (This is my first review so bear with me. I will also try to keep this as spoiler free as possible, but in order to explain what makes Arc-V so good, I will vaguely reference plot elements in the anime)

The beauty of Arc-V's story lies within its main character, Yuya Sakaki and his individual journey. Initially, Yuya seems like a standard shounen protagonst, who aspires to be the greatest Entertainment duelist, a duelist who brings smiles through dueling, but read more

Good lord, I never thought I'd see such a train wreck of a Yu-Gi-Oh show. So I will begin by prefacing this, this show is bad and the fact that it's bad has nothing to do with the hype it was receiving, that's just an excuse people use to defend garbage and they are more than likely lying through their rectum holes but fail to see that lie through their impenetrable condom of bias and utter ignorance. So let's just get to it because lord knows I'm not gonna change anyone's opinion if they still think it's good because they've drunkenly stumbled past the point read more

Let’s be honest guys, not everyone was happy about Yu-Gi-Oh! ZeXal. While the show was an overall critical and commercial success, some older fans felt alienated by it. And I can see why, what with the seemingly more childish tone (It wasn’t, sure, but the art style certainly gave off that impression) and a somewhat irritating protagonist. So as such, Studio Gallop brought back 5D’s’ director to try and bring in older audiences while still appeasing to the new crowd.

Unfortunately, the result was the single most hated Yu-Gi-Oh! series in Japan, and America wasn’t much kinder to it after a while. That my friends, is read more

Pervy Master Roshi Gets in Trouble With Broadcasting Watchdog

For many Dragon Ball fans, Master Roshi is an absolute legend! He's one of the coolest and most colorful characters in the Dragon Ball universe. However, this old man has a roaming eye that's easily distracted by the younger ladies, which can lead to more problems than simply a nosebleed.
