    The yugioh anime is my childhood and had taught me so much about friendships, determination, amd believing in yourself and trusting your gut feeling too! It means more to me than pokemon. If it werent for yugioh i wouldve never been on pc. I dont play the cardgame much but i will always hold the characters and story dear.

    The YuGiOh anime was alright, one of those few animes I watched. The later seasons are pretty ok. I played a little bit of the card game but not much, I gave away my cards.

    Like, I feel that way because I clearly have not seen enough YGO episodes.
    Yes, perhaps you should watch the original YGO series. I mean, I haven't even seen a majority of it, but they go far deeper into the monsters than you might think.

    And, in general, I see more people that play the YGO TCG than the Pokémon TCG. My friends and I have even agreed before that, when it comes to videogames, Pokémon trumps Yu-Gi-Oh, but when it comss to the TCG, Pokémon comes nowhere near Yu-Gi-Oh.
    And at least YGO changes it's animé protagonist. >.>;

    EDIT: @Kura - Agreed! d:

    A veil falls away without a sound
    Not day nor night, wrong nor right
    For truth and peace you fight
    Sing with me a song of silence and blood
    The rain falls, but can't wash away the mud
    Within my ancient heart dwells madness and pride
    Can no one hear my cry

    Embrace the dark you call a home,
    Gaze upon an empty, white throne
    A legacy of lies,
    A familiar disguise
    Sing with me a song of conquest and fate
    The black pillar cracks beneath its weight
    Night breaks through the day, hard as a stone
    Lost in thoughts all alone
    In the white light, a hand reaches through
    A double-edged blade cuts your heart in two
    Waking dreams fade away,
    Embrace the brand-new day
    Sing with me a song of birthrights and love
    The light scatters to the sky above
    Dawn breaks through the gloom, white as a bone
    Lost in thoughts all alone


    In endless dreams, countless realms collide
    Hope falls only to rise like the changing tide
    But all dreams come to an end,
    Just whispers on the wind
    Sing with me one last time, for light's sacrifice,
    Endless dawn came but not without a price,
    Lost in the waves there glimmers, a pale blue stone.
    I think of you, all alone

      I know its gonna sound really fangirlly weeaboo to say this but if you havea chanceto watch yugioh in japanese then do it. The tone is so different.. so much darker.. and the music also brings the show to life . Maybe i am a bit bias since i like it, but i couldnt watch the english because the whole seriousness about saving the world and freeing the spirit really got tuned down because they focused so much on marketing, unfortunately...give it a chance in jap if you have the time!

      This DCC is already to 3,000 posts hot damn

      I still would rather read/watch things in my native toungue and not have to read the subtitles and watch the action at the same time.

        Well i guess its fine for me since I'm a fast reader, but the action on tv animated series can be quite low since obviously they need to budget an episode every week and etc, so it won't be feature action animation.. for that reason imo watching subs on those can be quite easy and not as distracting but to each their own of course!

        I like subs better in general, although I have to wonder - probably because I'm not as familiar with Japanese, I can't really tell if a line came off awkwardly or something so it's possible I just have no way of knowing bad voice actors in Japanese like I do in English...

        . . . I've . . . never actually watched Yu-Gi-Oh in Japanese.
        Gosh darn, now I feel like trying that! xD

        Aaaaaand there should be a way to "Like" that picture of Aragorn up on the main section page there, lol.

        I also just borrowed Borderlands from my brother. Let's see if it's any good, lol. GONNA PLAY AS LILITH. Cool name, cool looking girl, and from their descriptions, she fits my play style best. I love her already, but I have a few more hours until I can be near my Xbox, lol.

        If you ever want to get a decent idea, try watching any episode or movie where a Japanese celebrity guest stars. There's such a marked difference that even as someone who doesn't understand the language, you'll be able to notice. It's not always noticeable, but most of the time you get actors who think they can just go in there and...speak without having to try.

          Yeah I've really noticed that too! I think that's why I'm starting to prefer a lot of liveactions, actually. I know many are over-acted and all that.. but there are some GREAT gems <3

          I never used firefox, but I believe I can feel your pain. I for some reason choose Internet Explorer, but let's not get into a war over internet browsers. That would be bad.

              Firefox was doing that to me too a while ago. Switched to Chrome.

              Anyway, the originial YGO series were the best. I don't know how I feel about the new series.

              I use Firefox for the most part. The laptop only has Internet Explorer, though. It doesn't like me looking at pictures on Facebook.

              I only use Firefox when I want to use my alt on PC. I've got the password saved on it.

              My account info isn't on any browser out of fear of someone else using it.
              Though for some reason, Internet Explorer acts like I never log out. :?
