So, here it is! After some times airing, the anime has reached a point far enough where I can write a review and not just editing articles.
When I watched the first 2 episodes, I thought that, "Seriously? Another Shining Draw protagonist? And what's up with those Action Cards!?"; yes, it's awesome and all but the ass-pull amount was unforgivable...
...At least until I watched the next episodes. Instead of being bored to death, I got a love letter from the creators as I was faced with complex plot, breathtaking duels, parental care (Yes, gotta write that), mysteries and nice series tone. And I like how they deconstruct Yu-Gi-Oh! aspects, have been waiting for that!
Oh, and they also got Fusion, Ritual, Synchro and Xyz! Plus some TCG/OCG stuff! Good Heavens!
The plot is so well-developed in this anime, and if it's not because of #1 and #2, it'd be so much better.
I'm surprised that there are many three-dimensional characters in this series. At first, I kinda expected some people playing children's card game, bonding with card boards and be done with it. Instead, I got a deep protagonist, an actually good heroine, a perfect rival, and good parents, among other things! Many characters are memorable (For good or bad, lookin' at ya Eita!), and I actually love most of them. Lots of the cards also counts. It does help that the new Solid Vision gave them more life and depth.
About the duel choreography... Despite having some of the most kickass duels, several duels used too many A-Cards and some of the duels are kinda boring, such as #16~17 and 19~20.
Visual-wise, lots of the monsters look badass! The summon animations are awesome, and seems like the peeps who do the visuals are going all-out! Special mention goes to Action Duel, which makes dueling both mind game and Parkour.
The music is great, as expected from a "Yu-Gi-Oh!" anime. Some of them can be ear-worms, while some of them are outright awesome. The OP and ED are catchy, and they do deliver the series to the audience.
All in all, I can say that this is the best "Yu-Gi-Oh!" anime I've watched so far. If you're a Yu-Gi-Oh! fan like I am, I totally recommend this anime. Don't give up or judge the anime by episode 1 and 2 (Determination is the show's theme, accidentally), since the rest of the episodes are mostly totally and utterly awesome!
