So, Arc-V. The 5th installment in the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime franchise. Seems like they're milking the card game for all it's worth. But that is a discussion for another time. I only started watching the series to check out the new summoning mechanic in the game, Pendulum summons. I admit I found it a bit interesting. Other than that though, my interest isn't entirely there. I tell ya, the monsters keep on getting goofier each installment. I may put the series on hold soon since Pendulum summoning is the only thing I wanted to see.

Anyways, what do you guys think? Anyone even watching? Do you think they should stop milking the Yu-Gi-Oh! card game already and stop making animes?

So we've already had card games in Ancient Egypt, card games in schools, CARD GAMES ON MOTORCYCLES and card games in space.
What's this shows gimmick? I'm not sure I understand.

I don't particularly care what they do with Yu-Gi-Oh. I'm obviously not it's target audience.

I used to enjoy it as a child and play the card game as well...until I got kicked out of my middle schools Yu-Gi-Oh club for cheating but that's another story for another day.
I love Yu-Gi-Oh Abridged so there's that. Yeah.

I believe Arc-V's gimmick is bringing duels to life. Through action duels, you play in a randomized field and you're able to interact with your monsters, spells, and traps. As the MC would say, it's supposed to make dueling more fun.

But yeah, original Yu-Gi-Oh! will always be my favorite because it got me into the card game. 5Ds with its card games on motorcycles was actually not bad. In fact, I'd even say it was good up until the 30ish episode mark where they just messed it all up. But yeah, my interest in the actual animes has dwindled since then. I only watch from time to time to see how the game has evolved.

I won't ask about the middle school incident. Yu-Gi-Oh! Abridged is indeed awesome though.

I do like that they're bringing the other types of summons into this series (fusion, xyz, synchro) along with adding Pendulum summons, although if im honest I still have no idea how Pendulum summons actually work.

I'm certainly not excited for this series, but it's a decent time sink for when nothing else is on. Also the whole idea with interecting with your monsters made me remember a whole lot of rule 34 Dark magician girl, oh dear.

I've been following the show since it debuted. The latest one was kinda meh but I would like to take notice of


I do recall a Polymerization card being played in the show too so maybe we'll see even more old school tactics.

So... The weird jacket-thing that Yami Yugi used to do is back? Of course, they're probably not planning on explaining the physics behind it staying on his shoulders.

In theory Pendulum summoning is really broken. If you had the right cards you can both synchro and xyz summon.

God, I stopped watching after a few episodes in the Motorcycle Arc.

What's happening with this show? They should have just put the dog to sleep, these extension plans aren't working any more.
