I watched this show when I was younger, and I've since re-watched it, and taken a look through the entirety of the Yu-Gi-Oh series. Seeing as how this is a show made to sell trading cards, it has no right being as good as it is. If you manage to look at this series as more than just a very long advertisement, you'll find that, all of a sudden, it's not. It's a well written supernatural drama about a boy that plays a popular card game, who begins to share his body with an ancient, all-powerful pharaoh, as his favorite game all of a sudden becomes a matter of life or death. It's genuinely interesting, and if you haven't already seen it, you might want to give it a shot. If you manage to stick around a little bit, you might get swept up by it too.
P.S., This is an anime, not a cartoon, and I really resent both the fact that I have to distinguish the two, and the fact that I actually care about the difference so much that I put it in my review. I'm terribly sorry for making such a cliché move, but mentioning this distinction seems like it's somehow... necessary? Eh, let's say compelling.
P.P.S., Please, just watch the show. Or don't. That's for you to decide!
Yu-Gi-Oh was one of my favorite childhood anime shows ever, I used to watch it every afternoon after school, and I admit that I got hooked by the card game franchise as well.
This season was much darker and more dramatic than any part of the previous three, and more engaging and compelling as well, arguably even more so than the final season, in fact! It also touched on real-world ancient civilizations and mythology and tapped into their lore on a very deep and profound level. Many of the main characters are hurt or defeated from the show by the villains, including Yugi Muto himself, and the stakes are higher in this season more than ever. The dub was in fact very well-done, maybe even better than the Japanese original, especially with the main antagonist Dartz, whose voice actor was quite superb and conveyed emotion extremely well.
The last fight between the Egyptian gods and the Great Leviathan in Episode 183 was possibly one of the most uniquely action-filled scenes throughout the entire show!

Man, this show is far worse than I remember. Even as an avid TCG player of Yugioh when it first came out, the show never made sense, but its so cheesy and bad now that its funny. Joey and Mai are the only players who win without blatantly cheating. All the enemies do it either by using mystical millennium items that alter the duel in their favor, or old fashioned cheating by smuggling key cards, stacking the deck in their favor, or destroy other players property.
Other than that, the show is so cheesy bad and "over the top played serious" that it becomes comedic. A good watch when stoned, or for background noise.

Grew up watching this and it's amazing with many life and friendship lessons. Glad to find the whole set here because it's hard to find it these days. Anyway, if you can make it pass the dueling (it's amazing) and look at the story as a whole, it's an awesome anime.
This anime is both entertaining and delivers good storytelling; however it's a bit underrated for someone my age, too bad the uncut episodes aren't available on here. The unut version is tv-pg rather than tv-y7, so you don't feel like you're watching a straight up kids show, plus it's much better than the 4kids entertainment edited.
