Back when I was a kid I was obsessed with any and all kinds of collectable card games I could get my hands on; Pokemon Cards, Magic: The Gathering, Digimon Cards, Harry Potter cards (For the hot five minutes that they were a thing, I had a terrible Severus Snape deck.) But the one that captured my imagination the most was the Yu-Gi-Oh competitive card game.
I was a nightmare for going out and blowing money on booster packs and even buying individual cards online. I got my Buster Blader and Dark Paladin that way, still no regrets. This was in no small part thanks to the anime that ran alongside and accompanied my obsession with the card game. I followed it all throughout the original run and even enjoyed GX until 4Kids decided to stop dubbing it half way through the third season.
