That's the clean and nice version. This is the original.
When originally published weekly in the magazine, Yugi and his small group of friends, Téa, Joey and Tristan, just try to get through life living in Japan while attending a private high school. Yugi seems to get involved in "adult" situations usually involving guns, gang violence, and sex, and has to find a way out. His other, dark, half comes out whenever he feels Yugi is in trouble and challenges his enemies to games where if they lose, they must play a "penalty game" where their life is changed to make them have a taste of their own medicine. That's what it was like in Japan, before it hit American Censors.
To anyone who feels this is just another Pokémon or other Anime, blame the censors, not Japan. And, to those who are knocking this HUGE hit, how many graphic novels have you read that make you know what the real story is? Don't knock it 'till you tried it.
Person 2: Not yet, but I can't wait!
Person 3: You actually read that?
Persons 1 and 2: Yeah. Who in their right mind isn't reading "Yu-Gi-Oh!"?
"this show sucks!"
**watches japanese version**
In the dubbing process alot has been cut out and changed to suit a younger audience (and make more money of the merchandising). The dubbed version of Yu-gi-oh is not a true representation of the story and it is better to watch the subtitled Japanese versions that are floating about out there or even read the manga.
1. The English version sucks because it is badly dubber (although, the English track on the uncut DVDS is pretty good...though most of you probably watch it subbed anyway.
2. It is not a kids show. The unedited version of the show is rated PG to TV14 and the manga is rated teen.
3. The whole "OMG! JAPAN IS USING IT TO SELL US THEIR CRAP THING!!!!" is also lame, the real first season of Yu-Gi-Oh didn't invlove cards at all, but people liked the idea of the issue of the manga he did use them so he decided to use them more.
4. If you make fun of someone for playing this, you might as well go make fun of people for playing Halo and chess. THEY ARE FREAKING GAMES! Who cares if you don't like them? People like to have their fun.
In this game, family members die, souls are kept hostage, the earth is near destruction, and ducks have the ability to spit fire at large Angelic Monsters.
Each of the characters are metrosexual or severely gender confused.They also appear to be having fantastic orgasms during duals.
