After almost a year of waiting, fans of YU-GI-OH!: GX will finally be able to see what happens to Jaden and his friends. And I doubt you’ll be disappointed. The duels are still intense (and not painfully long, thankfulIy) and the stakes are high once again as Jaden takes on opponents of all skill levels. If you’re ready to continue your GX experience, Season 3 will take you there!
If you are not familiar with YU-GI-OH!: GX, SEASON 3, here is the plot synopsis courtesy of Cinedigm:
Jaden and his friends are officially upperclassman as they enter their third year at Duel Academy, the world s most prestigious dueling prep school! To keep students at the top of their game, Chancellor Sheppard invites the infamous and often feared Professor Thelonious Viper to campus this year. Known for his strict and unconventional teaching methods, Viper forces Jaden and his friends to take part in a series of dangerous Survival Duels in which more is at risk than just their grades! New rivals, new monsters and a whole new season to Get Your Game On! It’s Yu-Gi-Oh! GX Season 3!
I have to say, I am impressed with this season the most so far…much like Harry Potter’s progression in the books, Jaden and his friends have sort of matured over the past three years. Thus, the characters are more interesting and a bit deeper in their development.
Curiously, I’ve seen a lot of buzz on the internet in regard to YU-GI-OH!: GX Season 3 and the “missing final episode”. I did some digging and discovered Episode 156 was actually not dubbed for the English release, therefore the season is sorta left on a cliffhanger.
But that doesn’t detract from the series at all, and if anything, it whets the appetite for more. Season 3 is another big win for me, and I recommend it. The DVD set is available now, so take a look.
