I really didn’t enjoy this series. Going back thousands of years in Yugioh’s memories to change fate. A bunch of old world style duels with stone tablets, sucked really. One final duel between Yugioh and Yugi to send Yugioh [the pharaoh] peacefully to the afterlife.

Yeah, I liked this series. Of course, the rules for cards were pretty loose and everyone pulled “secret” abilities out of their butts ALL the time, but it was cool. And having played myself I could enjoy the strategies as a player and not just a reader. Good stuff.

the final volumes of the original Yugioh manga. I enjoyed it, but at times the way the badguys were allowed to cheat and get away with it was almost eye-rolling. I mean, Kaiba kidnaps Yugi’s Grandfather and displays him dying in a cage in front of a huge crowd of kids and everyone is like “Yeah, Kaiba, you’re the coolest” while Yugi’s group is “We believe in you Yugi, you can DO it”. A little to much sometimes. The final 2 books, dealing with Bakura though, were pretty cool.
