Yu-Gi-Oh! has always been a series about dichotomies. The premise draws from the same well of ideas about “shadow selves” that would go on to make Persona 4 such a hit with the next generation of edgelord teens, and the legendarily brutal edit job it received during 4Kids […]
I am in fact a Big Fan of this movie. Years of dealing with the marketing machine and hardcore Eva fans might have something to do with that. And yet I completely understand the utter despair of the poor newbies who were seeing it for the first time.
