My poor aching brain can take no more. I've finally cracked, and admitted I need help sorting all this out. I don't play Yu-Gi-Oh, I don't buy the merchandise; I really don't like the concept all that much. But I do enjoy the show. It's on at 3pm and I watch it whenever my lunch hour happens to coincide. I only see about a third of the episodes, and I've hopelessly lost the plot. To give you an idea of where I am, today's episode involved Yami Marik dueling Bakura and Marik's spirit, or something. They were on the top of Kaiba's blimp, in the Shadow Realm, and Yami Marik won, banishing the other two. I believe it's a bit behind, but that's the channel I'm watching it on, so please don't spoil anything that happens later. I've a bunch of questions: The Yamis. It seems that there are three - Yami Yugi, Yami Marik and Yami Bakura. Is that right? So, two bad spirits and one good spirit in the Millennium Collection Thing? Who are they? For that matter, what are all the Millennium Items? Seto Kaiba. What's his motivation in all this? I can't see how his corporation ties into it all - or, for that matter, what exactly KaibaCorp does. Is he just obsessed with having the best cards and crushing everyone else? Does Duel Monsters even HAVE a sportsmanship award? Duelist's Kingdom. How did the Pegasus tournament end? I tried to watch every episode when it first came out waaay back, but got bored after that first Yugi-Weevil match. I only picked up again right at the beginning of Kaiba's city tourney, so I basically missed the entire thing. Seems like all the characters got what they wanted - Joey's money, Yugi's creepy granpa and Seto's brother. I believe Yugi and Kaiba teamed up to rescue Mokuba? Why was that? Bakura. Who is this guy? He wasn't at the Pegasus tourney. I know he's a "friend" of Our Heroes, and was brought to hospital by Yugi's creepy granpa. What happened there? How did he get his Millennium object? In a flashback, Tristan said he threw it into the jungle on Duelist's Kingdom. Yugi. Why is Yami Yugi dominant now? Yugi used to have to summon him for duels. I'll admit I like not having to look at those creepy eyes Yugi inherited from his creepy granpa, but his hair was relatively more sensible. Bad Yamis. Fill me in on why Yami Bakura and Marik were fighting Yami Marik today? I know that they had secretly teamed up back in the city. Also, I only switched over right as Bakura's Winged Dragon of Ra vanished into the graveyard for some reason. What exactly does that card do - I've seen Slifer and Obelisk already - , and how come Bakura had it and not Marik? The Finals - How did each match go? I've only seen glimpses of this stage, and I've no idea who's supposed to be fighting who and at what knockout stage. Many, many questions. I better hold a few off for my next post, but if anyone can help me out, cheers! By the way, I DID see the episode where Marik's past was explained, and how Pegasus got the Egyptian God cards. I also saw that one where Bakura possessed a piece of Yugi's puzzle.
