Storyline

A young boy named Yugi Moto solves an Ancient Egyptian Puzzle and brings forth a dark and powerful alter ego.

Those that lose or cheat suffer serious penalties that result in losing their sanity or even their lives. Along with his friends Joey, Tristan, Téa and Miho; Yugi and his dark counterpart faces off against foes such as Seto Kaiba: The ruthless champion of the duel monsters card game; and Ryo Bakura, who possesses the Millenium Ring containing a spirit more brutal than Yami Yugi. Will Yugi and his friends succeed or will they lose their souls? Written by payback1017

Quotes

Seto Kaiba: [to Zigfried] Instead of turning you in for fraud and trespassing, I'll let you go, on one condition. Get out of my life, and take your bad hair with you! And if your overpriced shoes come anywhere near me again, I'll destroy what's left of your pathetic company!

Alternate Versions

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 »

Awesome
13 July 2004 | by shadowyugi2yamiSee all my reviews

I at first thought the series was going to stink, but hey it's one of the best anime's i have ever seen. It's really good and the duel's and the cards and the millennium items are all really cool looking and awesome.Yami Yugi is actually the ancient pharaoh that sealed away the shadow games 5,000 years (or 3,000 according to the manga or vise versa) and he remembers nothing. So after the duelist kingdom everyone wants to help Yami remember his past. On the way through battle city duels occur for various reasons, fame, honor, to strip the Pharaoh of his power, and eventually the world his put to stake. Yugi and his buddies have to join together and help save the world even if you have to help a cold heir to Kaiba Crop. Yugi and his buds help anyway, they are so nice. Yugioh is a great anime.
