Abridged series are an amazing thing and they show why manga and anime fans are awesome. The fans can and will take their favourite shows to a different place and it’s something to be appreciated, this happened with Yu-Gi-Oh! and the result was a comedy series that portrayed the characters in a more lovable light aka Yu-Gi-Oh! The Abridged Series.
YGOTAS tells the story of YGO in a shorter and much funnier manner, on top of that the abridged series actually makes sense. The series makes reference to a number of internet memes and anime series, whilst pointing flaws in the actual series and making references to the fact that everybody plays a children’s card to game in order to achieve anything.
The series is really good for a laugh especially if you’re bored, it’s definitely something that all YGO fans will appreciate but it also has an appeal for people that don’t watch YGO or anime in general. Like most things on YouTube the series is offensive but the offensive humour is absolutely necessary as that’s what gives the characters their flavour. Watching this series will make you wonder what YouTube would be like if it had a TV channel (even though it doesn’t need one).
If YGOTAS is anything to go by then it’s safe to assume that most abridged series are funny and well crafted, it also adds a lot of credibility to manga, anime and its fans.
