    Does the tournament matter with evil lurking so close?

    The quater-finals of the Duel Academy are very exciting. By taking the duels by themselves they are enjoyable to read. But the real catalyst is what is going on behind the scenes of this tournament. Which is the revelation of the evil villains (Reggie and Mac) to the hero of the story, Jaden. It fills this volume with the suspense of what will happen when the final good vs evil battle emerges. However, if the villains of this storyline are targeting Jaden, why bother with the tournament in the first place?

    The villains seem to be hunting for sport, which can make the storyline drag at times. Of course, it also seems that aside from the main objective they both share, both villains seem to have their own agendas. This is balanced out by the pressure they put on Jaden with a looming shadow game. This creates an air that over takes every duel in the tourney. It sucks the fun out of the duels, but compels the reader to find out what happens next.

    Over all the quarter-finals set up the semi-finals. With a potential shadow game looming in the future for Jaden, will he be able to focus in his semi-final match? Also with one of the villains (Mac) out of the running, what is going to happen behind the scenes of the tournament?

    Shonen isn't just for Boys

    If you thought the anime version of "GX" was a little--dare I say it--goofy, well, the manga version may surprise you. And in a good way. The "GX" manga series is (in my opinion) way better than the anime. The art may not be as good as what was in the anime but then, manga art and anime art are two completely different things. The manga, like the anime, retains some of the lighter moments in the story but unlike the anime, the manga focuses more on what makes "Yu-Gi-Oh!" fans love this series and all its incarnations, that's right, I'm talking about the duels! This volume, volume 3, focuses on the Duel Academy Tournament where the winner gets the chance to go up against Zane Truesdale (Ryo Marufuji or Kaiser in the Japanese), the academy's top student. Borrowing from the original "Yu-Gi-Oh!" story, there is a shadowy villain lurking in the background that has sent two American students, David Raab and Reggie Mackenzie, to Duel Academy in search of "spirit cards". (It kind of brings to mind Marik and the Rare Hunters during the Battle City Tournament in the original "Yu-Gi-Oh!".) Jaden Yuki, our hero and aspiring future King of Games, happens to own a "spirit card", Winged Kuriboh. Of course, in true "Yu-Gi-Oh!" fashion, there will be killer duels, a Shadow Game or two, and Jaden will have to save everybody because that's what good guys do. This volume also comes with with a bonus card, Winged Kuriboh Level 9 for anyone who plays the real world "Yu-Gi-Oh!" card game. This series is a great shonen (boys) manga but really anybody of any age or gender can enjoy this story. Girls can enjoy Reggie's (yes, she is a girl despite her name) and Alexis' duels. (They can definitely hold their own against the guys.) This series is rated A for everyone and I think if you enjoyed the original "Yu-Gi-Oh!" manga series or even the anime, you will enjoy "Yu-Gi-Oh! GX".
