  1. I wasn’t aware of this campaign until today, but I’m so glad the Joey vs Yami Marik duel made it to the list. There are so many duels from Duel Monsters I love, but I believe that one is the one I talk about most. It’s so frustrating to watch cause, Joey was so close to beating Yami Marik. Victory was literally in his grasp, but unfortunately he did not have the energy to call an attack with Gearfried. Since he couldn’t get up in time, Yami Marik won the duel by default.

  2. I’ve always been very impressed with Jonouchi’s duels. People who don’t know him probably think he looks like just another tough guy, but in reality he loves his friends so much and puts so much heart into his duels. It really makes his dream at the end of this duel and his loss that much more tragic.

  3. When i was looking on Duel monsters i was really hoping Jonouchi Vs Mailk was going to make it on there. I am happy it made it. It was the first thing i looked for, my favorite duel.

  4. Yessss!
