I feel like I am very much out of touch with the fascination kids and young adults have with Yu-Gi-Oh GX. I watched some of the episodes with my daughter, but I can't seem to get into it. However, I am clearly not the target audience for this series. My best friend brought her kids over for a playdate. Her elementary school aged son thought that it was so cool that we own Season 1 of Yu-Gi-Oh GX. He watched several episodes with DD. When it time to go home, he asked if he could come back again soon to finish all of the DVDs with her. Even if I can not appreciate the plot like our kids could, I could still acknowledge the fact that the animation is great. The characters are drawn well, and the monsters are very impressive looking. If you have a child who is a Yu-Gi-Oh GX fan, you will want to pick up this DVD set.
