Since my daughter has become a fan of Yu-Gi-Oh! after watching season 4 DVD set, she has waited for season 5 with much anticipation. She follows the story line very closely, but I think that mostly she loves the animation. The characters are well designed and the art style is very different from the American animation that she is used to. Typically she would ask to watch an episode from beginning to end so that she could enjoy it as a source of entertainment. But then she would ask me to play the episode again so that she could draw and copy the character design on paper as she re-watches the episode again. If you have a young child with vivid imagination, I would give this series a try.
