Hatenko Yugi: Thumb down

Currently finished: Episode 3

Just finished off episode 3 of the series. It, um..., how dow I put it, SUCKS!

The first episode is somewhat refreshing, because it's something new. The second episode, freshness is wearing off, but there are some mysteries about the main characters you hope they'd reveal soon. The third episode, is just plain lame. The plot doesn't make much sense; the action scenes are pretty retarded; and everybody seems to have an IQ below 20.

There are way too many unknowns in the series. It not only doesn't make any attempt to explain them, but also keeps teasing you with short flash backs.

Normally, I'd dumped it before I'm half-way through episode 3. But, since this is a relatively sparse season, I'll give it another one or two episode before I make the final verdict.

New rating (out of 5): 3 (Net gain: -1)- Sucking
