Yami Bakura: Now for the fun part
[purple clouds begin to float across the field, as Kaiba looks around apprehensively]
Yami Bakura: What's wrong, there's no such thing as magic, right? And those visions you've been having, they don't exist either, do they?
Seto Kaiba: Not this Egyptian speech again. When will you people learn that I focus on the future? I don't waste my time worrying about the past!
Yami Bakura: That attitude of your hasn't changed in over 5000 years.

Far superior to most
19 August 2003 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

Yu-Gi-Oh! can be confusing to those with slower mind-speeds. The duels like all plot devises, are used to progress the plot and even develop the characters, and in an effort to do so, may annoy, frustrate, or even confuse some members of the audience unfamiliar with the game strategy and cards(effects). However, the these duels are essentially not difficult to follow.

The overall plot of the series is complex and very entertaining. Of the main characters, and aside from Yami Yugi, the villains are often the most compelling. The most interesting, and charismatic of these "villainous" characters being Seto Kaiba(thanks to the paragon voice-work of Eric Stuart), with Ryu Bakura, Maximillion Pegasus, and Marik Ishtar following close behind.

This series, unlike many others, requires the audience to possess functioning memories in order to recall the mythology. The plot is intriguing for those who enjoy mysteries and suspense(although watching YU-GI-OH! one need never fear the hero will be anything other than victorious).

Yu-Gi-Oh! is an excellent choice for children in order to instill morals and values; most importantly honor, courage, loyalty, and confidence in oneself.
