Default does anyone else find Yugioh abridged anoying

Ok I understand that the Yugioh abridged Series is supposed to be funny but dose anyone else but me find it kind of anoying, it kind of ruins the original Yugioh for me and I accually like Yugioh otherwise I would not be in this forum lol, I mean you say you like or are a fan of Yugioh then watch something that makes fun of it, it dosen't make any sense and I understand that it's funny but still... I also heard that they also made a Dragonball Z Abridged... seriously that was and still is one of my favorite anime it dose not need an abridged series. Anyway back to Yugioh I would really like to hear your opion on this thread.

The abridged series is great and it's one of the main things that make Yu-Gi-Oh so popular even if the franchise doesn't admit it. The abridged series has attracted many new fans and is the sole reason the original airs on Saturday mornings after being off-air for years.

Long story short, it's just you that finds it annoying. Bro.

How can it ruin the original series, it is just a parody series like all abridged series.

While I enjoy the Abridged series for what it is and love it to death, I do find the way the fandom takes it annoying. It makes Duel Monsters much harder to talk about seriously.

For example, any person who makes a post asking a question or trying to dicuss something about Kaiba gets met with the old, used, and abused "Screw the Rules, I have Money" joke by about a thousand different people. It was funny when little Kuriboh did it, and a few variations were pretty clever, but it's not funny anymore. It's the same with ALL of the Abridged series memes.

The Abridged Series is funny, yeah, but it can get goddamn annoying when you can find at least one out of context line in literally every thread.

"But it made YGO popular! D="

Sure, but only as a bigger laughing stock than it already was thanks to the poorly handled spin-offs and the terrible dub. The duel Monsters anime is now almost completely associated with The Abridged Series which breaks down the series with the most quality and turns it into a laughing stock.

All publicity is not good publicity, regardless of what some may think.

Wow, I had no idea you felt this way about the Abridged Series. I personally loved it, but I can understand how a parody series like this can make it hard to impossible for anyone who hasn't seen the actual series to take the actual series seriously.

How you find making fun of the flaws of yugioh series and maybe anime in general while throwing in internet memes and real life stuff annoying ?

Sure it has its moments affecting the population and making it harder to take it seriously but then again its a card game and we don't live in a world where the fate of billions is decided on a single card game.

And it could be worse...stuff like 4kids could have killed yugioh period.

The Abridged Series simply went downhill after the end of the Mako duel, to be honest. I can understand; it is difficult for people to find any jokes or puns in a series as straightforward as YGO. The entire Battle City finals arc is focused on dueling. It could also be the result of budgeting issues.

Its not anoying its just boring, and if you find it anoying then the best advice is: Don't watch.



(If I want to watch something funny I'll watch some hentai.)

I don't find it annoying.

I find the people who think that randomly screaming the meme's the series produces at any given time is acceptable annoying.

**** those people. Stuff like Card Games on Motorcycles wasn't THAT funny. You're constant repeating of the phrase isn't going to change my opinion.

Yeah but Japan doesn't overload YGO or any of their animes with really, really bad puns. 4Trash was WAY too happy with making puns out of these characters. =/

I kinda found it funny how in GX season 3, dub Sho and dub Amon broke the fourth wall repeatedly, and dub Manjyoume pulled an Abridged Series joke on us with his "getting good in card games is the only thing that matters" or something like that.

That's because Manjoume is obsessed with the card game for some reason. =/

That's because of his brothers.

Something about dominating the world through Politics, Media, and Duel Monsters or something...

Because if you've got the world of Duel Monsters in your hands...your dreams will come true, or something like that.

That was episode 111. I would post the youtube link, but 4Kids took it down, so instead check it out on yugioh wiki. Here's one of my favorite dub moments (favorite in a "lol they actually said that?" kind of way).

THat was a bad attempt by 4Kids to leech off the abridged series popularity
