At first, card games on motorbikes sounded a little absurd. But after watching season 1, I could say this could be one of the best spin-offs yet (GX sucked). The animation & story plot makes you wonder "All THIS just for a teadious card game..." 5D's is so good it had an OVA in the last jump convention.

What do you think of the series?

Hey... Wslasher.... Aren't you the Wslasher from Janime? ^^ *is the Bakageta Koto from Janime*

I thought the idea of card games on motorcycles was really odd when I first heard of it. (I like to call it Yu-Gi-Oh! BMX XD) But, after seeing the first few epidoses, I really got into it. I think that's mostly due to Yusei being serious like Yugi, rather than a happy-go-lucky airhead like Juudai. But, I really appreciated the amount of thought that has gone into the new series. Let's hope it lengthens the Yu-gi-Oh fandom. ^^

I just hope that 4Kids doesn't kill the general perception of 5Ds, like they did with GX... >>

5's stinks with no real link to the past characters. and making duel's turbo duels really wasn't all that big of an improvement on the series. Personally 4kids should have just finished the Yugioh GX series. cause they left all the fans of the version of the series hangin.

What are you talking about, Ushio is seen in the first episode & he's from season 0.

GX was an epic fail, plotwise. 4Kids didn't air season 4 because it had some demonic feel to the final antagonist w/c they won't be able to censor much.

5D's is what the fans call "The show that saved the franchise."

And judging by your post, your watching the dubbed episodes. Try watching the original Japanese version. It's better!

Yu-Gi-Oh 5D's is better but not superior a original YU-GI-OH.

YGO 5D's is very very good ^^

Yu-GI-Oh trying to be edgy /swt thats a tough realization to come to but meh -.- I can't stand 5Ds although I feel there is a conspiracy towards me breaking down and watching it. Why does the second opening have to be by alice nine -_= and the EPIC song too -_=

meh sig banners are overrated

At first i thought this would be nothing, but afetr the first ep, I really liked it....atleast more than GX. GX started good at season one and then went bad...5D season 3 and it's still good. and I love synchro

The whole card games and motorbikes being necessary to stop some evil plot that threatens the entire world still seems kinda hard to take in. Kinda like how in the regular Yugioh, Yugi has to stop plots to take over the world/bring about the end of the world using collectable trading cards.

GX was good through Seasons 1 and 2.

It was Seasons 3 and 4 that made it tank when the writers actually seemed to LISTEN to people's constant complaints about it "not being dark enough" and whatnot like Duel Monsters was when GX WASN'T SUPPOSED TO BE LIKE THAT IN THE FIRST PLACE. It was meant to be a much lighter Yu-Gi-Oh! series for a more "casual" environment over the fate of the world hanging in the balance in virtually every Arc. As a result of them trying to change things, the story got messed up, other main characters that were shown strongly before are shoved to the background, girls that started out strong (like Asuka and Aki) end up being reduced to little more than reincarnations of Anzu/Tea in Duel Monsters (cheerleaders for the main hero), and newer things that take place have little to no explanation, thus make no real sense and that worsens things coupled with various retconning or just outright forgetting about them.


5D's started out great and went strongly through the Dark Signers Arc.

Lately though, however, it has gone quite a bit downhill with all the pointless filler episodes and, like GX, is falling prey to the "Gary Stu" (Crow) who ends up pushing other longer-time main characters to the background a majority of the time (Aki, Rua, and Ruka). He's basically the Johan of 5D's; minimal backstory, just thrown into a main character position, Duels seem to be about advertising his cards over actual story involvement, and a bunch of things happen with him that have NO real explanation to them (like why he was suddenly made a Signer). Basically, the writers keep retconning things that we've known for a while just for Crow's convenience it seems.

5D's pretty much caught the same sickness GX Seasons 3 and 4 did with how things are going. It's like they keep dragging out fillers just to buy themselves time to think about what to ACTUALLY do next.

I'm from janime as a matter of fact. I don't go there anymore though, there community is pretty busted these days.

Personally I think that 5Ds is a marketing conspiracy. I mean GX was ok but 5Ds is just way out there like whadafrik is it even Yu-Gi-Oh anymore o_O I mean who woulda thought about dueling on motorcycles? Are they trying to be hardcore?

Especially when you consider the fact that the stuff meant SPECIFICALLY for the Riding Duels will probably NEVER come out.

But that's what I meant with how 5D's, at least now, has been reduced to tons of nigh pointless (even if good-looking) filler episodes that are more about card advertising than the actual story at hand. Especially the Duels involving Crow, with Yusei and Jack right behind. Personally, I want to see more decent, general Plant and Deformer support from Aki, Rua, and Ruka (who only had TWO DUELS HERSELF THE ENTIRE SERIES), but noooo, it's all about Black Feathers and almost random/"new" stuff from Yusei and Jack.

The card Jack stole was not the Crimson Dragon, rather, Yusei's Stardust Dragon.

Yea thought that too, but it is not completely like GX too me. It has that YGO original flare. Unlike GX it becomes a simplified upgrade. Not that dark, but something to ease up. Iam just saying since they hadthe crash town arc I might as well give them thumbs up on it. That arc brings you back to the dark signers.

The series is neat. Especially in the dark signer arc. Season 3 is kinda dull, but the ask for less motorcycles so they gave it to them, and they needed to do the upgrade. I love the beginning how they are separated. It brings a sense of freedom. Like in the world of today. Those people who live in the projects and those like us who live in the middle class or rich.

I am a big DBZ fan at heart, but I like other anime thanks to there storyline. DBZ is the reason I love Bleach I am a lonley person. I have no ral friends in the world, and so I go to anime and it closes up the saddens I feel with joy. [IMG]http://i970.photobucket.com/albums/ae184/SecretZfan/Ggumm.gif[/IMG]Signature Image
