I could never get into yugioh 5ds as it was far to dark to begin with, but dark fantasy does tend to be off putting for me. just an opinion though as I was able to follow the story pretty wel. my favorite was yugioh gx and the original. but I am a 90s anime fan but I have watched a few newer anime and I am still the otaku I am. though Jaden's hair was pretty cool I liked it more actually.
