Alright, so this is gonna be interesting to see who watched this show, and who has no idea what I’m talking about. Also, second to last letter, we’ve almost made it through the whole alphabet!!
Y is for Yu-Gi-Oh!
So this is one of the animes that I was absolutely obsessed with when I was younger. I watched this whole series as a kid, and got very invested in all the goings on of the show. I also love this:
It’s basically a meme now. Okay, how do I explain this show..
A shy high-school student named Yugi Moto receives the fragmented pieces of an Egyptian artifact, known as the Millennium Puzzle, from his grandfather. When Yugi reassembles the puzzle he is possessed by the 3,000-year-old spirit of an ancient pharaoh. Yugi and his friends Joey, Tea and Hondo protect the puzzle, which contains powerful secrets many people would like to possess.
That’s from it’s Wiki. It doesn’t even talk about the cards. Anyway, the gist is that everyone plays this game called Duel Monsters. You have a deck full of monsters, traps, spells and such and you fight against another player. You have a certain number of lifepoints, and when they reach zero, you’re ‘dead’ and you lose the match. They link this game to lots of ‘Shadow Realm’ things where the monsters and matches become a lot more real. Look, it’s complicated to explain, but its one of the most well-known animes, along with Pokemon and DragonBall Z.
I never actually got that into Pokemon, but since I did this in my last A-Z post, I’m going off on a tangent and talking about another anime shows I have watched and enjoyed.
I watched this pretty frequently too. It has gone on forever though, and they’re still making new episodes. I always got annoyed with how long it took them to fight one villain though. I like watching the Abridged series of it though on YouTube by Team Four Star.
My favourite ‘magical girl’ series ever. I watched this religiously as a kid after school, and even owned some of the Clow Cards. I also really liked Sailor Moon, but I got into Cardcaptors more.

And finally, this one. A friend of mine introduced me to this in uni, so it’s a show I’ve watched recently. It’s just really funny and over the top.
So this is another post where I’ve gone off topic but I feel like I might have lost some of you guys who don’t watch anime and have no clue what I’m talking about 😂
For those that have watched these shows though, what animes do you guys like? Rory tends to watch more than I, these are my personal favourite ones that I’d recommend though.
That’s all for Y. Z will be up on Friday. The last one!!
