Fans of Yu-Gi-Oh! will go crazy for this upcoming 8-DVD set of Season1 5D's. I know as my husband couldn't stop smiling when I surprised him with the complete 64 episode, season 1 DVD set, that I was recently sent to review. Back when I first met my husband in school, he was big into the Yu-Gi-Oh! trading game, and would meet up with friends to play this dueling card game. And, when Anime movies started popping up for Yu-Gi-Oh! fans to enjoy, my husband was front and center ready to watch them and then collect them when they arrived on DVD. And, over the years many Japanese Yu-Gi-Oh! movies and series have been released. I thought this was going to be another one of those trading card game crazes, but it has stuck around and continues to draw in new fans of all ages.
My nephew, who was here for the holidays, is a new fan, after sitting down with the guys to watch a handful of the Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's, Season 1 episodes. They weren't able to watch all 64 episodes, but my husband was quick to get everyone up to speed thanks to his already seen them all a couple of times. :-) This is definitely one DVD set Yu-Gi-Oh! fans wished was released at the holidays, so that they could have asked Santa for it. But, now that it will be here soon (1/13/15), they will be using their gift cards and Christmas movie to pick up this 8-DVD set to watch.
