I don’t care what you say, there were two cartoons that I really got into in my later teen years and they were Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh. I didn’t play the card game, because I had no one to teach me, but I followed the cartoon even through the weird dungeon dice phase. When I got Hulu I added the whole series on there and watched every episode. The series reminded me of watching old Dragon Ball Z episodes because some of the matches would be 4 or 5 episodes long and then go directly into another multi episode arc.

It was announced a few months ago that not only would 2016 be filled with Yu-Gi-Oh games, but we would be getting a new movie. The trailer came out in Japanese, but now we have an English version and I’m really digging the remix of the theme song.

There are only two things I want to hear somewhere in the movie

  1. The theme song with the lyric Your Move
  2. Joey yell out Kunai with Chains

The synapse of the movie is as followed

The stakes have never been higher; the rivalries never as fierce; the risks never so great. One wrong move—one card short—and it’s game over for good. A decade in the making, Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions features new designs and an all-new story from the original creator of the global phenomenon, Kazuki Takahashi. His masterful tale features anime’s most beloved characters in their long-awaited return: Yugi Muto, Seto Kaiba, and their faithful friends Joey Wheeler, Tristan Taylor Téa Gardner, and Bakura.
