    It really is. Apparently, there is some behind the scenes trouble as well since it changed directors pretty early on, IIRC. Plus, a stupid amount of recap episodes.

    And very meh summon chants. Which is a crime for a card game anime. Link Summoning has to be the lamest summoning method visually and audibly.

    Which is a damn shame since the concept is Yugioh with Cyber Batman as the MC.
    also doesn't help that yusaku maybe the blandest and saddest MC we've seen. sure, his backstory is pretty damn horrific that made it hard for him to relate to others but still doesn't make him likable. i mean, he is the only MC who has no friends. he has allies, sure but friends? i can't call anyone around him as a friend.

    That's the series main problem in a nutshell. I mean, not just Yusaku, but rather all the main characters aren't interacting with each other in significant ways.

    damn right. go is.........cookie cutter: the big tough guy who loves kids? that's it?

    ai had some going with her alter-ego as blue angel but she's a blank slate.

    even the knights of hanoi are just a disappointment as antagonists go.

    and speeds duels are just a poor man's riding duel.

    i'll ride the series out for now but at this point, i can tell anyone who watch YGO to skip this one.

    I'm loving Black Lightning more and more. The scene where the main character's daughter is looked down on by her classmates for not being what they consider black enough really hit home.

    It’s a good show and hits a lot of facets really well imo

    Now that AJ Styles vs Shinsuke Nakamura is going to happen for sure, I wonder how Nakamura himself will do his entrance come the big day.

    Storm threads are the only reason I don't need to actually go after people, anymore.

    There's so much stupid, and madness in them; all I have to do is sit back and enjoy myself.

    Once again, I ask that we keep it out of discussions.

    Seven Deadly Sins: And now it is time for war.

    Hopefully the side characters will some time to shine and be relevant.

    Man, I was going to joke about a Storm moratorium but I guess we're doing this now.

    Anyhow...
