On a more serious note, I absolutely loved Akiza's character. Her growth was substantial and her dueling abilities were very respectable. I liked how she started as an antagonist but didn't have a bull s**t reason for being an enemy to Yusei.
5D's was more mature in a way that the show focused on dealing with death and the loss of loved ones. Carly's death, for me was one of the saddest moments in all of the series.
I absolutely despise Zexal.
Yuma's character is so typical, he's the hyperactive cheery kid that's always happy and wants to make people laugh. He's oblivious to the obvious crush that Tori has on him which is SO DAMN CLICHE GODDAMNIT.
I also hate Tori, for one her character is boring and unoriginal and two, she's useless.
Season 0: I love it for Cute Yugi and Yami Yugi 3nodding Also the other characters are more developed than in DM
DM: Was my favorite for half a decade, but it lacked of character development and I only cared about Yami Yugi there so ... (and why not, he was the main plot, and it took exactly 224 episodes for him to find his answer neutral )
GX: Im starting to watch it, I think its ok for now.
5D's: My favorite one I totally love it, screw that people think about card games on motorcycles as dumb, Synchro Summons and Riding duels are awesome, the characters aswell except Akidon't judge me, I just don't like her, and the story 3nodding
Zexal: I watch it once in a while when episodes look "interesting" although these newer episodes are better than what we got at first. I don't like the characters so much, and the colorful enviorment is making me go away from the show more than the characters already do xD
But Aki looked super hot in that tight motorcycle outfit...
5D's was my favourite and looks like it will stay like that. GX was cool too. But with duel runners and adult main characters 5D's absolutely was my favorite. Dueling on motorcycles: What's dumb about that? And it's not like it affects the game so much anyway. But ZeXal was completely a dissapointment to me. OK, anime is good, but a kid!? Yuma? Duel Disks back again?! That was quite a lack of imagination and I blame not the producers but the YuGiOh! fans who were saying "GX is the best, 5D's is so lame."
BTW, you're so right Evany, Aki was so .. uh umm. rolleyes Yeah, what were we talking about again? biggrin
Well, personally I grew up with the classics, but as time passes on I started seeing the spin-offs.
GX I wasn't too keen on, but 5Ds really took a lot out of me, considering the huge character development as well as the atmosphere of the story itself. Zexal is growing upon me, so you can say that every one of the series truly holds a piece in my memory.
Season Zero...I wanted to replay that show so many times. Although it was the only one never aired in America, it was also the only one that showed many different shadow games as well as having the first story of how they met told in so many ways.emotion_kirakira
Now if they only start getting a little more serious on the romance...sweatdrop
