I have a Confession to make...

I'm actually watching and enjoying Yu-Gi-Oh.
I know that it aimed at kids and that the whole show is made for merchandising and that the rules of the card game changes every episode and that its choc full of friendship that it can make you sick, but for some reason I'm enjoying it.

So who else likes an anime that they know they really shouldn't by does anyway?

Altough I have watched a lot of stuff I didn't like just because I wanted to give the series a chance I never had the feeling you have while watching yu-gi-oh. lets take pokemon I saw about 40 episodes of it but in the end I didn't like it(I didn't think it was that bad either)except for that delightfull jiggly puff song.

I knew I'd finally have a good reason to hate you one day, Wolfpac.

I've never seen the series beyond the odd one or two episodes I watched a few years ago. All I was able to get from them? The English voices bugged me and the character's art style hurts my eyes.

Hey Driz, I know what you mean - it's the American voices that bug me about most dubs! But yeah, the Brit voices in Yugi suck pretty bad too. And what is it with Yugi's HAIR??? I can't watch more than about 10 minutes of this show.

Hey Wolfpac, do they ever explain why everybody seems to have one of these huge arenas in their backyard? No matter where they are, there is always some humungous virtual battlefield just around the next corner! And whenever two people get into an argument, they settle it by challenging each other to a duel (just like they do in pokemon). Get real! One of them should just smack the other in the face, take their cards/chips/badges, and walk away laughing? Teach these kids a bit of reality

What do I watch? I felt the 4th season of Jackie Chan was pretty flat, but I can still watch the previous 3 seasons happily. Fave ep: Jade casting the Duplication spell.

We've just started on the 2nd season of Teen Titans, I've only seen one ep so far and it didn't do much for me. I'll reserve judgement until I've seen the others. Fave ep: Nevermore.

What else is on UK TV? Can't think of anything exciting and new at the moment...

I've never seen one ep Yu-gi-Oh at all. Perhaps I'm lucky

Well, I'm a twenty one year old man who rates Card Captor Sakura very highly.
Okay, so it is a shojo series and it has a lot of designs that indicate towards a juvenile audience but for some reason, I love it! Maybe it's the interesting characters, the sense of the adventure, the pretty colours or the compelling pace - I don't know....

To think I call you my sempai! Actually, I dub Drizzten as my new sempai. Besides, he has better things to do with Yu-gi-Oh trading cards and such (Something me and Nair will have to fix up )

I have to admit, I love the show. Well, I'm mainly in love with some characters so that's really the only reason I watch it, lol! Yami Yugi and Otogi lol!

Having never sat through an entire episode of Yu-Gi-Oh, I cannot comment there. However...

Shamefully, I adore the FETISH EXPLOSION that is Tokyo Mew Mew. Lolicon, maids, waitresses, magical girls, lingerie, catgirls--it's all here, and it's all sugar-coated for mass consumption by 10-year-old girls. I am simultaneously disturbed and entranced by this series. I even bought a bunch of little plastic TMM figurines.

Dude, seriously. I need help.

I actually like YGO as well. The manga that is, not the anime.

That makes two of us. I'm still trying to find a sensible reason as to WHY I'm finding some enjoyment out of it. And it's a SHOJO series for cryin' out loud!!!!

I aggree with this as well. IM twenty one as well and highly enjoy Sakura very much. Some of my friends are really into the YGO card game. They not much into the show though. As far as series go that I really should have not watched go. I would say DBZ is mine. I decided to give it a try. In my senior year of high school I got to see up till about mid way through the Freeza Saga. It was not to bad. I really enjoyed seeing the training methods and what not. As far as the rest goes I don't know. It is one of those cases where it was out of my mind once I stoped wathcing. So that is all I really have to say about that. Wolfpac though hey we all have our own chocies. If you do enjoy YGO then go for it and enjoy it till your hearts contant.

How do you feel about the relocation of the series to Hollywood?
