This city is afraid of me. I have seen its true face. The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout 'Save us!'... and Gon's Balls will whisper 'First... comes... rock!' Hah!  Made you stare at Naruto's Marshmallow!  Pushing the logo off-center to drive TheOcean insane.

I read those and, wow, I was impressed and shocked. HOW COULD 4Kids TURN IT INTO A CHILDRENS CARD GAME THING WHERE NO-ONE DIES???? It is really good though. I have a super special awesome webpage for reading mangas online for free. [smiley7]

What are you talking about manga or something? Because I don't get it when someone says, "thing" <img src='/images/emoticons/smiley5.png'>

I love it too. I've only read the Shadow Games one though. The super violent japanese version. (Translated, of course...)

Shadow Games is the regular Yu-Gi-Oh one.

I own volume 6 because that's when Bakura appears and I couldn't resist buying it (I'd buy more but I need to save some money). I've also read volume 1 and I've seen the anime version of this series and it's quite good. Different from the Yu-Gi-Oh we all know better, but still really good.

You mean the very first part of the story around when Yugi first gets the Millenium Puzzle? Yeah, that was in the Shonen Jump magazine so I read it.

Yes, I read it. The art sucks.

And no, 4Kids didn't force Takahashi to turn it into a series based on a children's card game, his editors did.

Well yeah, the art was worse because it was the very beginning of the series. You can't really blame the manga-ka (forget his name)

I know...I know. Most manga-kas usually start out mediocre.

And I just wrote his name in my previous post. Takahashi. Kazuki Takahashi. o_o

I remember reading that Takahashi originally wanted it to be a series that would expose kids to all sorts of games, not just card games (although they did have Monsters and Wizards). I loved the part where they played an RPG (with miniatures!) with Bakura (Monster World story arc). Everything about Yugi was so great in that part... His Magic Hands that rubbed enemies and chibi-fied them... And one of his monsters looked so much like Kirby that I forget its name.

I'm in the middle of reading these; in fact, I just got some new ones two days ago (Borders was having a sale).

I love this series and wish the later versions would have kept the concept of multiple types of games. They were psychological and fast-paced, and some of the strategies Yami can come up with are insane! Not to mention he's an evil pyromaniac...that's pretty awesome.

I don't have it all (still missing volumes 2, 3 and 4) but, yeah, I love it. Makes me glad 4Kids doesn't have a manga translating arm. And I hope they don't take that as a suggestion.

They made Yami saner. -pouts- Sanity is over rated. I liked it when he killed people.

Also, Bakura stabbed his own hand on a castle! That's epic.

Btw, is the Kaiba vs Yugi duel in the anime based on the duel they had in Death-T?

I liked it. It had this cool Jekyll and Hyde thing going. And actual characters. I kind of wish Takahashi would do an alternate universe continuation of YuGiOh that followed this storyline instead of getting into card games.

I read the first three volumes (its all my library has of Shadow Games). I prefer Duelist Kingdom for its story and artwork.

Well, the artwork evolved over the Shadow Games run, from the first volume, and the atrwork used in volume 7 would be what I say is the artwork we all know.

I liked the early chapters better as well it was like Ghost Rider meets a gaming MacGuyver. Also liked the school parts and the kid who was into the span ripoff.
