Legend has it five thousand years ago, ancient Egyptian Pharaohs used to play a magical game very similar to Duel Monsters. This ancient game involved magical ceremonies, which were used to foresee the future and ultimately decide one’s destiny. They called it the Shadow Games. Since the game used so many magical spells and ferocious creatures, it wasn’t long before the game got out of hand and threatened to destroy the world. Fortunately, a brave Pharaoh stepped in and averted this cataclysm.
Now, in present times, the game has been revived in the form of playing cards.
Giant monsters! Powerful magic! And ancient Egyptian legends!
Yu-Gi-Oh! is one action-packed adventure series that holds all the cards! It’s your move!
Bringing me straight back to my childhood was this boxset laid out before me, taking me back to the days when I’d sit as close to the TV as possible to watch Yugi and his friends play duel monsters. Marvel at the sights on screen as the Blue Eyes White Dragon and the Dark Magician went toe to toe on the battlefield. I even remember collecting the cards in School, trading them with friends and battling against one another on the playground.
The superb animations, the strategy the storyline and the intensely addictive nature of this show gripped me even to this day and I’m now 23! Who would of thought this show would still appeal to me but episode after episode I couldn’t turn the TV off as I wanted to remember just how Yugi makes it to Pegasus’ castle.
A phenomenal box set for all ages and its finally here for you to own, re-live your childhood or even introduce yourself to the franchise for those who haven’t seen it, Anime at it’s very best and you will not be disappointed.
