This is the first season of Yuugiou. The storyline follows the first manga arc from before the duel monsters game really began to be played excessively. Yuugi was not aware of his other self at this time, and his other self forces those who have done harm to Yuugi or his friends to play a batsu geemu. (Penalty Game) This series is commonly mistaken by fans of the English dub for "Yuugiou: Duel Monsters" as being the series they know and love. The English dub skipped over this series however, and it was never dubbed. See more
