I was on youtube, looking up clips of the movie to show to an artist  so he can draw some awesome pictures of the monsters. Then I came across this video. It was done be an over zealous Christian, somebody who believes in ecidence that proves that the Theory of Evolution is wrong and greatly flawed. But despite that, he seem to REALLY seem to capture the dark elements of the movie, which is somewhere in the range of Dante's Inferno, or "Paradise Lost" or "The Tragic History of Dr. Faustus."
 
 
  
 
Radical or not, it does seem to fit in the franchise's (orginal) elements of magic and evil.

Here's Yu-gi-oh in a nut shell: 
 
"The fate of the world shall be decided as it should be: in a children's card game."

 

*cue pissed off hero annoyed at the use of lucky draws, broken strategies and baddies annoyingly talking about their card effects and strategies to make a big deal that they are winning said children's card game and being a step away from ruling or destroying the world.*

@Dream:  Don't forget the Card Game version of Hogwarts... or when you can play it on a motor-bike.

@SilverZeo: Oh yes, that "academy"... 
 
"So Johnny, what will you be doing when you graduate from the academy?" 
 
"I'm gonna be a bum on the streets owning little kids in a children's card game because the academy's not really teaching anything meaningful for my future." 
 
And as for the bike game, a certain FLCL character would have a treat here... 
 
"It's crazy. All the duelists lately have been getting ran down by a woman on a Vespa armed with a guitar during the middle of their duels. This is madness! No one will be able to play a children's card game in peace as long as she's around."

When I was A Kid and my parents still brought me to church, My Priest said that "pokemon was a show invented by the devil. It Talks about "the power that's inside" (obviously witchcraft) and shows "evolution" something that directly contradicts the bible" (not to mention, Apparently Pokemon are supposed to be demons). So yeah.. I'm used to this BS.

I love how he doesn't seem to notice or accept how Yu-Gi-Oh switched the light and darkness themes: Light= evil Darkness= good. :P

@Kelleth:  Well, thats a bit too basic. I think in the 2nd season of GX, the Light was to represent a false presumption of God and the church, as those who say they're are true belief and those who do not follow are deemed evil and the darkness itself is more about the stuff that have been rejected or the unknown... revolving around a card game of course. And in the thrid season... we had Yubeel..... yeah, she kinda made that Darkness being bad.
 
@rein: Hey, i went to a catholic church school, and they banned the games (video and cards) because they're  distracting the students from the their studies, plus their stuff was being lost or stolen. And to add in more of the contradiction of the church as a controlling force, they embrace students to read the Harry Potter books just because they were actually liked by the students and were increasing the reading boom.
