We are 25 episodes in the newest Yu-Gi-Oh!

How would you rate it so far? Personally, i would say the Anime is Mediocre so far.

its alright.

>>164587920
It's on the lower side of 'ok'.

They obviously need to rethink how Yugioh anime is made since they're literally running on half the number of animators compared to past series, and the show suffers for it. I fear Vrains is simply a casualty in that transition between Arc-V and series 7 where they figure out how to have decent production values again.
>>
What can we do to make Yugioh great again other than a DM Super show that is based off the manga?

Why the fuck would you want DM characters in a hideous and terribly written sequel. DBS fags are such cancer

you're right those characters don't need to be tainted, GX super pre-tainted characters.

Spin-off where legacies show up for maybe half a dozen episodes and the actual main cast are entirely new, compared to a direct sequel. Are you capable of recognizing the difference?

no i'm saying make GX super so you don't have to fuck with the original characters. I don't know you're talking about.

How about a new Yugioh that's actually a good shounen so that previous characters aren't at all necessary?
This timeline isn't going to let that happen, though

What did you say again?

Yugioh will never be good again because it is purely an advertisement for the card game and nothing else anymore.

Not saying DM wasn't like this as well, but as everyone knows by now the manga did not start like that and it always had a clear direction, even when it hopped into the card game stuff - You can tell the manga never suffered from having to 'show off' this brand new card to get everyone to buy like the anime after it does.

But now it's literally just a weekly advertisement. Plot, characters, everything else is an afterthought.

For what it's worth and based by how things are it's basically above average or in the middle. Then again, you could say the reason for this is that they are trying to play things safe and a huge apology for what happened with ARC-V that sometimes leaves hits as well as misses.

The visual theme of the setting is ultimately superficial window dressing, and you're pretty retarded if you prioritize it over the actual issues.

Like how the monster designers seem to only get worse with time, not better, with making the monsters look cool and/or interesting in some way. Or how the strain of the animators to keep up with deadlines can almost be felt with how stilted and janky the animation can be at times. Or how the OST is actually pretty lame and represents a huge missed opportunity to elevate the impact of meh or good scenes in duels to another level through the music. The colors in Link Vrains are better, but they still frequently tip toe that line towards absolutely garish.

It's not the theme that's the problem, it's the execution you mongoloid. 5D's pushed its near-future scifi thing and was better for it and probably had one of the most interesting setting (in its part 1) in Yugioh anime.

>i might have missed some references to DM and GX in 5D that mentioned it was a continuation.
they weren't often mentioned but here are some highlights:
>Kaiba Corp still exists (you can see a building with the logo in the first opening)
>Domino city is called Neo Domino City
>Yugi's high school bully is now the chief police (Kaz confirmed is the same person)
>Bonds Beyond time shows a pic of Yugi winning a tournament and Yusei goes back in time to were Judai is and then go even back to where Yugi is which confirms that all 3 are in the same timeline.

the end of the world thing in 5D was an exclusive thing happening to 5D and never implied as a foreshadow for Zexal's reseting the timeline since that was made to be it's own stand alone series

>i actually never heard of Arc-V until right now. i kind of stopped watching after the end of 5D and then got back into it with Zexal but fell out before the ending because it got kind of repetitive.

You can watch ArcV now without finishing Zexal since both are not related in anyway except of Heartland being the dimension name of XyZ dimension in ArcV and Kaito (one of the many other cameos from previous series to appear but aren't the same as their series debut)

>>164606656

Oh, also another thing, Duel Academia exists in 5D which is the only reference you get from GX but is no longer an isle apart from society but a school that exist within Neo Domino City

It's quite mediocre. I have never digged these "virutal reality hacking" scenarios like the one we are getting here, which seem to treat computers and their workings in a way that's completely detached by reality (see the whole "stealing" informations that consists of going to an actual place and just grabbing there).

Besides that, Vrains doesn't have much going on for it after 25 episodes. Characters are flat and not very interesting and the decision to keep "the incident" some kind of secret from the viewer for so long got stale after a while. Duels are resolved too fast and are not interesting at all, especially when they start pulling skills out of their asses (some say this is better than action cards but I'm not entirely sure).

I had praised them for their decision to start off with the plot since episode 1, but considering how lackluster the world building is maybe I would've liked the usual 12-15 episodes of slice of life / light duels we usually get. I still have no idea whatsoever how a mmorpg about card games can be so important or why people would even use it.

Blue Angel is cute and I want to protect her smile.
>>
>>164607006
duels are very boring to watch, even when they aren't riding their hoverboard. I really can't put my finger as to why it is so boring but it doesn't feel the same way as how DM used to do it. Maybe because is so heavily focus on archetypes there isn't any deck that works from synergy anymore
>>
>>164606849
>>164606880
honestly it wasnt that the story was so confusing that led me to stop watching ut more or less because the friends i would play it with moved or got so good at it that i couldnt play a game beyond 5 turns because i wouldn't buy lots of cards so my strategies got readable nd theyd always beat me so i just kind of ditched the series because it only reminded me of losing.

>I really can't put my finger as to why it is so boring

Too much focus over combos and not enough emphasis on "that one monster" you can't wait to see come on the field, not to mention there is no attachment whatsoever between Yuusaku's and his own deck. I sense no hype when Decode Talker appears.

There is no gravitas nor importance to anything that happens, not to mention that duels actually are not over-the-top enough to make the plot convenience stand on his own.

This is compounded by the fact that the combo themselves are boring. Everyone in the world has no concept of any other summoning method that is not link-summoning and this makes for long, drawn out summoning sequences I am fucking hating (arrowheads confirmed! The summoning conditions are....). Everything is solved by links because they need to sell the new cards, but coming from Arc-V I can't fathom how anyone can consider this an improvement. Egao might have had shit plot, but at least the duels had variety.

>Judai's boyfriend
Didn't they sparingly interact for a week before he was captured by yubel?
>>
>>164607639
yeah, the monster don't feel that impressive to be seen summoned anymore. I mean sure, DM had the character have very unrelated monster types in their decks but seeing them being summoned just peak your interest to see what the duelist is up to. Atem's deck wasn't dark magician archetype deck but you were excited to see him summon a new monster or wanting to see how useful that monster will be. Arc-V almost had that impression because they focused on every card type. Meanwhile VRAINS is so stale and very slow, not to mention they no longer hold cards since is all digitally. They need more "iconic" monsters

I think it's neat.
There was clearly a vision in mind, and they're sticking to it. I admire that.

I also admire some of the superb design work that went into this series, namely with characters like Revolver, who is ostensibly based upon the Unabomber.
>>
>>164609774
>Unlike most hackers, Revolver distrusts the Link VRAINS and the people that, to him, are dedicating their lives to it and make false relationships with other people. He values a person's life more. He distrusts Artificial Intelligence, to the point where he does not have one installed into his Duel Disk. Due to that, he looks down as on the internet world as false.[2]

>Despite his hatred towards VRAINS, Revolver isn't against using the Cyberse for his own benefit. When Ai called him out on that, Revolver described it as "counteracting poison with poison".[2]
Next, mind this.
>Revolver can summon Data Storms at will.[5] He is also a professional hacker and can even infiltrate the system of LINK VRAINS, stating he could even destroy it. He shares the same Skill as Playmaker, "Storm Access" which allows him to add a random Link Monster from a Data Storm to his Extra Deck when his LP are 1000 or less.[2]

>Revolver is also a cunning person, being able to predict his enemy's movements and lead them into a trap and counter them.[6]
Next, mind this.
>"rokket", known in the OCG as 「ヴァレット」(Varetto, either "vullet" or "varrett"[1]), is an archetype of DARK Dragon monsters used by Revolver in the Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS anime.
>"rokket" is a play on the word "rocket". Its Japanese name, "vullet", is a corruption of "bullet", playing on the tendency of Japanese to replace "V" sounds with "B" ones. It may also reference the archetype's user in the anime, Revolver, who shares a similar gun and ammunition theme in his name and the design of his mask. "Borreload Dragon" uses the same play with the word "barrel".
>>
>>164609830

Next, mind that Revolver's ace (the first card he produced with Storm Access) is “Topologic Bomber Dragon”.

>In mathematics, topology is the study of the properties of space that are preserved under continuous deformations. This is referenced by this monster's tail being the shape of a Möbius strip and the protrusions in the shoulders being shaped like a Klein bottle.
>Also in topology and knot theory, a branch of mathematics, the trefoil knot is the simplest example of a nontrivial knot. This is referenced by the shape of the energy that seems to be generated by the monster's right arm.
>Furthermore, the knot in the card's artwork and Link Summoning in general may also reference to the concept in mathematical knot theory called a link, which is just a collection of knots which do not intersect, but which may be linked together.
>Following the computer network themed cards, a network topology could be disabled or affected by one of the nodes being affected. As per this card's effect, when a monster is Special Summoned in a zone a Link Monster points to, a disturbance is applied on the field.

Topology has to do with mathematics, that's important, so don't forget it.

Now.

>Theodore John Kaczynski (/kəˈzɪnski/; born May 22, 1942), also known as the Unabomber, is an American mathematician, anarchist and domestic terrorist.[2][3] A mathematical prodigy, he abandoned a promising academic career in 1969, then between 1978 and 1995 killed 3 people, and injured 23 others, in a nationwide bombing campaign that targeted people involved with modern technology. In conjunction, he issued a wide-ranging social critique opposing industrialization and advancing a nature-centered form of anarchism

>Raised in Evergreen Park, Illinois, Kaczynski was a child prodigy and entered Harvard College at the age of 16. He earned his bachelor's degree from Harvard in 1962, then his master's and doctorate in mathematics from the University of Michigan in 1964 and 1967, respectively. After receiving his doctorate at age 25, he became an assistant professor at the University of California, Berkeley but resigned abruptly two years later.[6] As an undergraduate at Harvard, Kaczynski was a research subject in an ethically questionable experiment conducted by psychology professor Henry Murray, which some analysts have claimed influenced Kaczynski's later actions.

>In 1971, he moved to a remote cabin without electricity or running water in Lincoln, Montana, where he lived as a recluse while learning survival skills in an attempt to become self-sufficient. In 1978, after witnessing the destruction of the wildland surrounding his cabin, he concluded that living in nature was untenable and began his bombing campaign. In 1995, Kaczynski sent a letter to The New York Times and promised to "desist from terrorism" if the Times or The Washington Post published his manifesto, Industrial Society and Its Future, in which he argued that his bombings were extreme but necessary to attract attention to the erosion of human freedom and dignity by modern technologies that require large-scale organization.

Why does everything have to be associated with autism in Yu-Gi-Oh?
If a character is rather calm like Yusaku or Aoi its not autistic
Kaiba taking extreme measures to make duel monsters great is by no means autistic either
YGO has a ton of stoic and over the top characters but summing it up as retarded is just lazy

Dark Signers was great but the best parts of 5DS were the later ones and any Duels that involved Accel Synchros
Shooting Star Dragons debut is the most well executed ace summon in the franchise by having its own theme and summoning method

That shit had no legs to stand on because right in the third season of the anime he was able to save everyone from a terrible death, gets some amazonian pussy on the side, and had one of the best sendoffs in the series.

Misawa and Kenzan were always useful in the series but everyone in these threads are just too retarded and autistic to remember for obvious reasons.

>Can't believe Water Dragon already got support before tons of other Characters
As for the support he received, I never would've thought that was even possible but I'm glad he got some well-deserved respect after such a long time.

Too bad Jim Crow won't get any support since his cards weren't even fucking printed for whatever reason.

>>164629392
Fossils would be hard to actually get into the game since they require fusion materials from the opponents graveyard
Some of them also need high level monsters which isn't even assured these days
Tested them in Tag Force 6
Most of his cards, like the field spell, were also just generic rock support
Atleast Fossil Dyna left off a Legacy for Jim as one of the more scary anti-meta cards
And Kenzans new Structure Deck revived the whole dinosaur type from extinction while also getting them to a meta position

Most Dark Games eat at the caster's life to manifest the monsters or have it tied directly to whatever the score is, but there are a number where it's not like that. Like okonomiyaki pong from early on wasn't actively killing either player whenever they fucked up, and the penalty was a literal, physical thing.

I think a distinction needs to be made between a game of darkness that results in a Penalty Game and just a game played in a scenario enhanced or facilitated with magic.

Revolver is considered an enemy by Yusaku right now, that may change later on once he changes sides though

That being said, I would love a Revolver vs Blue Angel duel whatever the outcome, and for Playmaker to get trashed when he tries to avenge his waifu. Is the only way they could make Revolver be a threat again and not the butt of a bunch of hipster old man jokes

I'm aware it's not a practical option, it was just the first one that came to mind. Realistically the best way would probably be to repurpose some Rank 3 enabler that can summon it, but I've basically never used Rank 3s so I don't know any off the top of my head that would work with Grand Mole. This is all just hypothetical anyway though since it'll probably stay at 1.
There is Red Resonator though, so I guess that could maybe work.

Ancient Egyptian wombology considered a person's self to be comprised of nine distinct parts, including body and name. By sharing a physical body, and using the name Yugi Mutou, Dark Yugi was always in a cosmic way Atem and Yugi at the same time. 4kids got this across by having Small Yugi's strained high pitched voice do stretches of internal monologue while Atem was clearly in control, but there's such a minor difference in voice in nip I found it hard to tell if they ever tried going for that in the original.

Poor Yugi. Even after he beat Atem, he never truly managed to escape his shadow.
Kaiba acknowlegded him, but still rather face Atem.
For all his efforts, Atem still ended up saving the day in the movie.
Even his love interest, despite her saying that it doesn't matter, would rather have Atem cock.
And the audience will always see Atem, not him, as the face of Yugioh.
Sometimes it seems that the only people who appreciate regular Yugi are Atem himself and a 12 year old girl who isn't even canon.

The only one so far to really pull off 'duels in motion'.

Zexal tried it for a few episodes or something with coasters and it was retarded, and the stupid gimmick rules didn't help. Zexal was much, much better at visual presentation with its usual standing duels.
Arc-V's motorbike dueling was like some pale, ugly, and stiff chinese knock-off. Regular action duels just kinda fell apart as the show went on.

>>164651404
Well he saved the day in the movie, but when does a ygo hero ever win big shit without some kind of divine or magical intervention. Might as well invalidate Atem's own wins through blind-played Black Magic Ritual, deus ex machina friendship mindguard, hell Atem lost to Zorc and only managed to win the imaginary rematch because Yugi self-inserted himself into the tabletop fanfic about his final battle.

The thing with Anzu is questionable, if she never developed and really valued Atem so strongly over him to the bitter end why did she get zero reaction shots or angst when Kaiba was grandstanding to the crowd and wurbling about forcing Yugi to bring him back with the puzzle. Why was there just a cute graduation and goodbye instead of even a token nod at whatever lingering feelings and wishywashyness were still there? Ultimately Yugi grew from a bullied little faggot who had zero friends and was in the bottom third of the class to a world famous champion and the valedictorian who read the speech at his year's graduation. He went on to design games to bring himself out from under the yoke of cards and the title of duel king, even. His design and attitude isn't as traditionally marketable and manga hero-ish as Atem, and everyone who's got a nostalgiaboner for original series is gonna remember the guy who acted cool and did 99% of the big fights over the quiet guy having a coming of age arc in the background, but I think in or out of universe it's not really a position warranting pity
>>
>>164651688
Yeah, there really isn't a 'hook character' yet. Like Shun and Yuto in Arc-V or the Tron family in Zexal. 5D's didn't need one early on, but even the shitty part 2 had Bruno and Sherry very briefly.

Characters rarely if ever become that thing (so I have no hopes for Revolver), it's usually them dropping in to make a huge splash in the show with their debut, and then being disappointing later. Or becoming a pale mockery of their former debut glory, in Shun's case.

i will always respect the series keeping yugi and atem very separate and treating both with respect, and not just letting yugi's personality and design grow 1:1 into atem effectively killing him as an individual

compare and contrast to rosario vampire, where the sexy silver vampire got her look and personality supplanted by the annoying pink whore sharing her body, and the last vestiges of her is the silver in her hair that is slowly being eaten up by the pink. if yugi's bangs ever stick up or he starts wearing too much eyeliner i'm calling bullshit

Even with Yugi's achievements, both in the animeverse and the mangaverse, it is kind of sad to see the main character so overshadowed. Having Atem saving the day does somewhat goes against the whole "Yugi outgrew Atem" thing.

As for Anzu, her love triangle just feels unfinished. Kaz probably sees her and Yugi as a couple, but he never really wrote that into the story. Even with the few token moments to remind everyone that she likes Yugi too, she seems to favor Atem even by the end. While everyone was conflicted and the ending was bittersweet for everyone, Anzu really looked like she wanted Atem to win, with lines like "I want Atem to be by my side forever". At this point, even if they do officially hook up it will feel like Anzu just settled for Yugi because Atem is not around anymore. The anime at least threw in a little moment where she instinctively cheers for Yugi before catching herself and wondering since when does she do that, the manga didn't even had that. Now obviously I'm not expecting a fully fledged romance subplot, but I think it is fair to expect some resolution and just going "maybe they will get married someday" isn't one.

DM was Atem's story, Yugi's story is one we'll never get to see in its entirety but it started right after the ceremonial duel. Having Atem save the day doesn't mean Yugi didn't outgrow Atem as an emotional crutch and surpass his skill as a player: it just means that surpassing him didn't turn him into an invincible superman who can solve all supernatural problems singlehandedly. Not even Atem did everything alone: the being that killed Zorc only manifested with the power of his friends and the power of the name they brought him, and he only lasted as long as he did up til then with the power of Seto and his royal court of sorcerers.

One weird visual storytelling thing during the moment Atem returned in fire to inhabit Yugi was that his eyes were dead, but there were two split-second cuts to Yugi where his eyes were perfectly lucid. I parsed it as pretty much Yugi just needed Atem's power, dark power, in order to stay literally conscious and pull off one last topdeck, but there was otherwise no strategic advantage. Obviously with Atem's magic influence it was Mahad, the literal perfect solution to their problem, but if the Dark Game hadn't had him on the brink of death and he'd been allowed to draw one more card, I think he would have still eked something out. Assuming he hadn't stroked out and died, which he was gonna, but hey.

Anzu though, I think ultimately all she wanted was a more self-confident Yugi, and Atem was like the instant oatmeal version of that. And since that Yugi didn't emerge in full until post-series, it was never going to seem like she'd get over him. But she's casually flirtier and closer to Yugi in DSOD than she was in either of her "dates" with Dark Yugi, not to mention never really bringing him up or getting anxious at the possibility of his return, so I felt like much like Yugi's confidence it was another silent development.

She's a female character, her cards aren't waifus, and she's in a coma, so it's not very likely.
Still, kind of weird that after 26 episodes there's only 6 characters that have had their cards released. Other series had way more characters with released cards by this point. Hell, Arc-V ended up with too many characters competing over set slots that Yuya kept hoarding with his crappy Performapals.

It's funny how out of all people, was kaiba the one who acknowledge him, and said by kazuki himself that they probably started working together, so they probably become close friends as well.

You can have Yugi not be an invincible superman without having him have to rely on Atem again. But I guess it's a marketing thing. Atem had to be in the movie somehow because, again, face of the franchise.

>Anzu though, I think ultimately all she wanted was a more self-confident Yugi, and Atem was like the instant oatmeal version of that.

I agree that was probably the intent, but it wasn't conveyed that well.

>not to mention never really bringing him up or getting anxious at the possibility of his return, so I felt like much like Yugi's confidence it was another silent development.

I think you're reading too much into it, she didn't really receive that much focus in the movie, but even then, why would she? She knows, like Yugi and the rest of his friends, that Atem is gone. She saw him leave to the afterlife with her own eyes.

Usually when Atem takes over, Yugi takes a back seat, used to retreat into his soul room then later just astralized beside him. But for the Mahad destiny draw, Yugi and Atem were overlaid atop each other and did everything in tandem, which is a level of synchronicity that hasn't existed outside of the 4kids dub where they used to say they "melded" during duels to make it seem less like Yugi was just a passive observer. It was reliance, but I think it was the healthy kind. Like the you did literally all the work up until now, but you're gonna collapse from exhaustion so lemme hold you up like you did for me a few times before and we'll finish the last stretch together. Or I think that was the intent, and I don't see it as a massive backslide for Yugi's character like some do. Like he surpassed Atem, but who was Atem? Someone who never did anything truly solo outside of traumatizing some kids, with Yugi always around for a tactical suggestion or just comforting moral support.

I don't think I'm reading too much into the Anzu thing, she's markedly the one who notes Yugi moping a second about Atem but doesn't get swept up into that melancholy or make a point of it, she has no strong or stricken reaction when the focus sweeps on her for a second while Kaiba's ranting about the puzzle and pharaohs and shit for the crowd to hear. Anzu's physical flirtiness and tendency to sit very close for meals is also a pretty far cry from the awkward water park or battle city dates. I don't believe they were dating during the movie, but it doesn't rattle my suspension of disbelief anymore that it could happen later on anymore

Again, I'm not sure what you're expecting her to react to. She knows there no Atem waiting in the puzzle. She didn't interact, or even see Atem when he made his brief return. And her not getting swept up into Yugi's moping about Atem has more to do with her barely getting focus at all. There's no denying that she and Yugi seem very close in the movie, but since she was so much into Atem when he was still around, it just comes back into her settling for Yugi because Atem is not around anymore, which I doubt was the intent.

the one that had the most scifi feeling to it was 5D's and a lot of people consider it the best series so far, granted it had it's fair share of mysticism and it was more on the Cyberpunk side, but technology wise it's the most advanced aside from maybe Arc-V, and that's because Arc-V took settings from previous seasons, Vrains seeting feels sterile in that regard

Yeah. Vrains shows very small glimmers of potential, like Yusaku and hotdog's sleuthing shenanigans where you can tell Yusaku trusts Kusanagi miles above anyone else, and Aoi's little moments about her own issues.
But like in Arc-V (and this was an issue even before Xyz arc) it just kinda puts most of it on hold to deal with nobodies no one cares about and slowly paced plot things because there are cards to shill.

Card shilling has always been an obstacle in Yugioh anime when it's not seamlessly integrated into the story. But in the past few years it's like most of the shilling is sectioned off in the 'boring' box, and anything mildly interesting is the writers desperately squeezing in little character tidbits when screentime allows for it.

The difference between wastes of spaces MGs like Anzu and Kotori, is that anytime Aoi/Blue Angel shows up so far, is plot relevant or important in some way

That may be because Aoi has her own writer to keep Yoshida's female hating claws away from her. I am not saying they wont get lazy and push her away later on like they always do, but so far she is definitely more relevant than Revolver's 5 minutes total of screen time since his duel 10 episodes ago

>Zexal 1 above GX

Alright then let's go back to when /a/ voted each Show and discussed Arcs

Top Arcs:
DM Battle City Arcs 50-97/122-144
5DS Dark Signer Arc 27-64
5DS Ark Cradle Arc 130-154
GX Darkness Arc 157-180
ZeXal Barion Invasion Arc 74-98
ZeXal Barian Emperor Onslaught 124-146

Battle City is the most popular one and the part where Yu-Gi-Oh! is most known for
Dark Signer Arc is generally agreed upon as being the peak in the Spin-Offs
Ark Cradle has the top moment in the whole franchise
ZeXal 2 Barian Arcs had Vector and Nash
The Duel against IV in ZeXal 2 and Mizael on the Moon is also agreed as peaks in ZeXal

Show Ratings were:
DM Manga>5DS>DM>Zexal II>GX>Zexal 1>Arc-V
Took me a while to check back the archives and files for this but I hope this is accurate

GX is the meme series. You had to totally turn your brain off to fully enjoy it. As for my order, it was based off the whole series, no just specific arcs. If someone asked me to watch the entirety of Zexal II or 5Ds, I would pick the first one. Zexal I was actually enjoyable because of the good setup for the bigger numbers, far more enjoyable than GX.

Zexal 2 is too great for Zexal 1
It's because they constantly explain the cards and the basic rules because it was popular among kids back then
Yuma is also painful to watch through in Zexal 1 and only gets based way later on
Only wish would be for Zexal to have as good of an OST as 5DS
You would expect them to not reuse Utopia Rays unique theme for every Chaos Xyz later on

GX was odd at times but was comfy as fuck in the first 50 episodes
5DS is the patricians choice of Show for YGO because the combos are not for everyone but extremely enjoyable for advanced viewers
It's also more mature with being as dark as the DM Manga at times

That’s just dub watchers who follow LK and never watched the series who joke about card games on motorcycles. The vast majority of YGO anime watchers praise 5Ds to the moon. It’s far from under-appreciated. That distinction goes solely to GX and Zexal. No surprise either since DM and 5Ds were huge hits and those series were markedly different and had to follow their footsteps respectively.

Just to give a few examples, people often complain about the inconsisent characterization in filler, but forget how Anzu went from "regular Yugi is fine too" back to chasing after Atem, or how Blue Eyes went from outright rejecting Kaiba to being his pride and soul. And if we're talking about consistency in general, the manga couldn't keep the rules, or even effects of a single cards consistent(multiply seems to create as many copies as the plot requires, for example). I've also seen complaints about anime Joey being treated as a joke, somehow forgetting how miserable he performed against Bakura in the manga.

>"regular Yugi is fine too" back to chasing after Atem

Anzu is just a teenage girl. Having those kinds of fickle feelings is pretty normal. You're judging her way too hard. Furthermore, her character arc has not much to do with her feelings for Yugi/Atem as it does with her passion for dancing. What she needed was confidence and support from her friends to follow her dreams which she achieves.

>Blue Eyes went from outright rejecting Kaiba to being his pride and soul.

Ok, I will agree this one is pretty muddled given the inconsistencies between the first seven volumes (stolen BE/DEATH-T) and the beginning of DK (puppet fight). It does; however, become consistent from BC onwards once the Egyptian lore is established. From interviews and stories of the manga's creation it's clear there was a lot of rewriting going on. We all know Kaiba was supposed to be a one-shot character/Card games were never supposed to be the main focus.There was justification for these changes and most of these small inconsistencies don't impact the overall narrative.

>the rules

Sure, there are no defined rules in DK which is clearly supposed to be a mix of D&D and card games. But it's not entirely true there is 0 consistency or logic to the duels happening. And yes, once we reach BC the rules start to become standardized but we still see the occasional inconsistency in a certain card effect. Again, this is the result of rewrites to make the story card-game centric. The duels still fulfill their purpose from a narrative standpoint well, and the amount of inconsistencies decrease over time. On that note, if you want to talk about cards with plot convenient effects the spinoffs are just as bad.

>Bakura v Jou

I don't see the issue here. That scene barely lasted a few panels and Jou straight up underestimated Bakura which isn't hard to understand from his perspective since he always thought Bakura wasn't a good duelist.

>Furthermore, her character arc has not much to do with her feelings for Yugi/Atem as it does with her passion for dancing.
I'm not sure how you can say that when nearly every time she gets focus it's in relation to her feelings to Yugi/Atem or Yugi's feelings to her. Her dancer dream was just kind of there, it gets established, she secretly gets a job so she can afford it, and by the end of DSoD she actually follows on it. It never really had plot importance(maybe aside from being useful in the falling blocks part of Death-T, but that's not really part of a character arc).

>Blue eyes

This isn't exactly a small inconsistency, and it shows up even in smaller time frames(Kaiba can't use Granda Muto's card since he stole it, but can use the cards he extorted out of other people just fine, puppeteer's first blue eyes destroys itself once Kaiba wakes up from his coma, but he can use the other blue eyes without a problem).

>Sure, there are no defined rules in DK which is clearly supposed to be a mix of D&D and card games.

This sounds like an excuse. I think it's fair to expect rule consistency in a gaming series. Especially considering that often Kaz did establish rules for many of the games played during the series.

>On that note, if you want to talk about cards with plot convenient effects the spinoffs are just as bad.

Obviously, the anime has its fair share of plot convenient effects, and it had the real life game to rely upon for rules most of the time, but the point is not that the anime is necessarily better, it's that the manga's flaws too often get overlooked.

>Bakura v Jou

The issue here is that some people make a huge deal out of it when Jou loses or is the butt of jokes in filler, berating the anime for disrespecting him, even if he puts up a fight, but when he gets utterly trounced and humiliated in the manga, silence.
