Hands down the most experimental of the Yugioh series. Being the first ever spin-off, the show tried a lot of different approaches to see what works and what doesn't. (whimsical slice-of-life, more typical shonen plots, parody, grimdark, etc.) It results in a lot of interesting episodes, but it does take the show a while to find its footing. By the time season 3 rolls around though, the series finally finds its groove. It knew the tone and story it wanted to tell, and the plot progressed smoothly from one episode to the next. I find the last two seasons the strongest, but I think the entire show is enjoyable due to the largely endearing cast. It's a great coming-of-age story, even if it very strange.

The dub of GX is interesting. It starts off around the same level of quality as the original dub, but it undergoes a very different evolution. The dub becomes increasingly comedy-centric with each season, to the point of going full out gag dub by the time season 3 rolls around. It makes for an amusing (if incomplete) watch, but it is a disappointing change. Most of the dub cast is fairly strong, but they don't get to flex their acting muscles as much as a more faithful script would have let them.

@1dbad I remember off the top of my head Adrian would constantly poke fun at the Anime tropes a lot of time haha, and yeah while I did find stuff like amusing I do also agree that hearing the cast with a more overall accurate script would've been pretty cool tbh.

@HylianBelmont Yeah, they had a lot of fun with Adrian's line in particular, haha. The dub of season 3 is a lot of fun if you view it as something like an Abridged series, and it does have some very clever jokes. It was just a strange choice of season to go the gag dub route with. Like I think a gag dub would have worked pretty well with the first or second season, but the third season is pretty dark in the Japanese version. (like, fans typically refer to the season as "the Evangelion/Madoka of card game anime") It results in an almost surreal level of difference between the two versions - with things like Sho trying to process the deaths of multiple loved ones being changed to Syrus joking about wanting his own spin-off in the dub.

My only complaint is that they didn't finish dubbing the remaining episodes, at the very least they could've dubbed episode 156 and that's it, it could've at least let us know that Jaden is okay.

@MegaAnimazing I'll never understand why they couldn't at least dub episode 156. The episode is mostly a recap, so it wouldn't be as much work as dubbing a usual episode. And it was the last episode of the season, so it made a much better stopping place.

Oh well. At least Crunchyroll has episode 156, as well as the undubbed 4th season, available with subtitles.
