Set six months after the events of the original Yu-Gi-Oh! manga, Yuugi Mutou and his friends are in their final year of high school and are talking about what they will do in the future. Meanwhile, Seto Kaiba has commissioned an excavation to retrieve the disassembled Millennium Puzzle from the ruins of the "Shrine of the Underworld." The item had previously housed the soul of his rival, Atem, whom he hopes to revive in order to settle their score. The excavation is interrupted by a mysterious man, who faces Kaiba in a game of "Magic & Wizards" and steals two pieces of the recovered Puzzle. What is his ulterior motive?

I don't see any reviews here so I'll make one. This is my first, so please excuse any mistakes. This is a long review, so please bear with me.

First of all, the animation is so outstanding. It's really high quality and during certain scenes in the movie you may think that it's real life scenery instead of 2D/CG. I couldn't believe my eyes watching it, 'cause usually Yu-Gi-Oh! didn't have that high quality animation (except for Zexal). Even Arc-V has meh animation. The animation is so constantly beautiful you can't take your eyes off the screen. This, I think, is one of the gems in read more

To put this simply - This film is not for people that play the game, because you won't be finding much of that here. Instead this is a film of pure nostalgia and progression.

The story is nothing much to speak of, a slotted in bad guy with the wrong intentions and then another "bigger" villain. The heroes then all come together to save the day. But like I said, this film is about character and that's where it shines - Because this film is for Kaiba.

They knew perfectly what people love about Kaiba, his sass and utter fire that he talks. His personality is better read more

To preface this "review" some pointers:

- There will be SPOILERS. If you haven't seen the movie yet, don't read this review if you don't want to be spoiled. Definitely do come back after to share your opinions. I would love to hear what you guys thought of the movie. Am I in the minority?
- I am perfectly fine with nostalgia bait. The problem is when producers think that a show can succeed based on nostalgia alone.
- I am aware that this is a sequel to the manga and not the anime, accounting for some of the discrepancies. Yet, some of the characters actions read more

The film sequel no one asked for but delivered on every single level. Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions does something I've rarely seen in anime: it caps off a 20 year old franchise with a movie that fits perfectly in the original series canon. It was announced out of the blue with characters from the original series that haven't been on a television screen in over a dozen years, yet never seems out-of-date or as just a simple cash-grab.

Story: 9/10

The setting takes place one year after the Ceremonial Duel that sent the Pharaoh spirit within the Millennium Puzzle to the afterlife. Yugi, Tea (Anzu), read more
