Legend says that the enigmatic Millennium Puzzle will grant one wish to whoever deciphers its ancient secrets. Upon solving it, high school student Yuugi Mutou unleashes "another Yuugi," a peculiar presence contained inside. Now, whenever he is faced with a dilemma, this mysterious alter ego makes an appearance and aids him in his troubles. Wishing to unravel the mystery behind this strange spirit, Yuugi and his companions find themselves competing with several opponents in "Duel Monsters," a challenging card game used by people seeking to steal the Millennium Puzzle in a desperate attempt to harness the great power within. As the questions pile on, it is not long before they figure out that there is more than pride on the line in these duels.

Kind of terrible but fun to watch ironically. Watch the 4kidz dub for full ironic effect.


Not every story arc is good, but it truly does earn its iconic status in the industry placing its tongue firmly in its cheek.

Sunshine And Lilacs

It’s a classic, what more can I say? The battles can be long and a bit complex but as I said, it’s a classic!


The One thing that everybody remembers. The anime moste iconic, that basically began the 21st century for many people. Check it out.


We all remember this show. What we don’t remember is that it wasn’t super great. Take it for what it is and don’t let nostalgia blind you


This is the best card game anime (show) of all time preiod.
