  • Yugi-light or expenisve game add?
    The show is enjoyable enough if you like card battle type anime, but it suffers from serious problems. If you have never played the online game, good luck understanding what's going on as the show just assumes you know the basic rules. The characters are, for the most part, stock caricatures of existing tropes and the main character is especially generic. That said the animation and voice acting ...

    The Only Show in Town, on Tuesdays
    (after ep.12) Even if there wasn't a Pandemic that killed off so many shows this season, I probably still would have stolidly watched this. Why? First the detractions. Like how low budget film producers can buy a set of Royalty-Free music, the plot, story writing, characterization, and motivations, is entirely made of plug-ins pulled out of the Standardized Drawer. For anime watchers like me who ...

    Looks cool, but misses the mark
    This show just feels disappointing, it could be so cool but it misses the mark on what an anime about a game/sport is all about. It cuts out lots of the play by play and what moves the characters are making so you never know exactly what is they are doing. The fun of watching a sport/game anime is watching the main character strategise or outplay the opponent, however, this thought process is cut ...

  • This card game anime Sucks!
    the main characters no personality other than loving shadowverse and saying shadowverse is great. And the card playing scene... Although I never played shadowverse before, I still know how cardgame animes are suppose to be. At least explain each players move. they just showed us screenshot of the battle. Its like a fightscene without any fighting. I wouldn't be watching this if Sevens is on Hiatus.

  • Picking up momentum!
    First of all I been playing the game since 2016 and i will consider this as a nice way to introduced the card game while also keeping the original music from the game. The first two episodes started slow (kind of expected), but right at episode 3 and onward the matches are more interesting and better. Also the combos in the matches are getting better. I also like how each character has a legendary ...

    A great idea, but pretty bad story so far
    So far the story isnt really that great. I would suggest reading my longer review here:

    Basically its talks about all the issues this show has at the moment.

    Hopefully things begin to change as the show goes on.

  • As bad as I expected
    This season being slim pickings so far, decided to watch this. Totally a generic game promotion anime. Decent enough production, but it takes more than pretty pictures to make an interesting anime. Cmon Cygames, I know you can do entertaining game based shows.

    No spice, just not feeling it.
    Seen this plot so many many many times, Boring first episode
    Come on guys in japan, really? Thousands of rocking MANGA out there waiting for anemia status and you pick this garbage? We need more originality and new stories, I am sick of seeing the same stuff over and over again with just different characters.


    This is my original work. DO NOT COPY ME BRO

    Do you remember Yugioh
    Do you remember in Yugioh when Yugi and Joey could have a quiet duel at their desks without overly dramatic nonsense? This show doesn't, every battle has to start with the intensity of Yugi vs Kaiba no matter how undeserved it is.
    Do you remember in Yugioh when Kaiba had to use financial pressure to force a duel with stakes? This show doesn't, any random jerk who wants to bet smartphones on a ...

    A lamentable informercial so far
    I've been playing Shadowverse on and off since 2016, and I was thrilled to hear that an anime came out. I'm also sympathetic to them making the show about the card game, rather than SV's in-game universe: SV borrows heavily from Cygames' other games "Rage of Bahamut" and "Granblue Fantasy," both of which already have in-universe animes. But despite my initial enthusiasm and my strong desire to ...
