Well...., 25 June 2007

I can't fault them for lack of giving it a good shot. Yu-Gi-Oh GX is another butchering or an anime put out by 4kids, but honestly, this could have been much, much worse. The names weren't too radically changed and was pretty much the only option in some cases (ask anyone to pronounce 'Manjoume'(although I was disappointed to see a character named Cronos go)) and they actually didn't fiddle too much with the base script. Unfortunately, they still wrote out plenty, and the voice acting was, as usual, mostly absurd. But, like I said, it still could have been worse. There are a few places where they use the concept of death, and the writers had the good sport to reference the Yu-Gi-Oh Abridged series once or twice, to my surprise. The aforementioned voice acting wasn't all totally bad, and I was a little glad to see they wrote out Cronos' (Crowler's) Italian accent, which annoyed me a little in the original series. The bottom line for it all is, it's pretty bad, but not nearly as bad as it could have been. I hope 4Kids continues to improve. On a lighter note, if you're a fan of the game(and thus able to get into the show's plot), this is a good show to springboard yourself into anime with.
