Never heard of the first one.

Wow, Ultimo made the list! Stan Lee is a boss.

I kinda don't like the list this week. Like, only Blue Exorcist would be the thing I'd prolly care if I actually read it.

Surprised to see Ultimo on the list, but happy. Also nice to see Naruto, Yu-Gi-Oh GX, and FMA.

People actually read Yu-gi-oh GX? wow.
They're packed with free cards.

I can't speak on GX's behalf, but the first Yugioh was fairly dark. Everyone who lost died.


GX is majorly lighter....well that is till the fourth season when horrible stuff happens and main character
. considering how he is at the start of the show, thats quite heavy and stark contrast.

And even then the first more lighter seasons had stuff like


And then we had the final villain who looked like a more anime version of this

Yes, for a show of its genre, both series og yugioh were quite dark things.

yah yugioh is surprisingly a dark show, though 4 kids had them sent to the shadow realm, in the real show, they just die, they dont even sugar coat it either, they just die,

Kannagi... the anime was good.

I have watched all of the Yu Gi Oh(game king) series and will speak for it since rei avatar cannot.

the fir4st yugioh season was a great start for the series, actually I considered it one of the top 5 animes of the 1990s. the second series was where it tried to incorprate the "high school" theme into Yugioh, and it failed to me. but Yu-Gi-Oh 5D'S was EXCELLENT! it was absolutely amazing that it's story flowed so smoothly! and the story kept me always on the line except for a few episodes.

but the Manga? they were all bad. but the GX's manga was known for having excellent promotional cards that were attached to the books for free.

though it puzzles me as to why people brought THIS specific volume...... since the promotional card was pretty BAD this time.

on a second note, KANNAGI! finally the americans released it. I am watching the series right now in fact.

but still sometimes the American have no taste :/

Iunno if this is true of any Yugioh beyond the original but the manga was loads different then the cartoon show. Focused much more on character and story. Could be that way with GX I guess... or people just like their card games.


I've never heard of Ultimo... looks interesting, I'll have to look into it.
