YuGiOh! Episodes 1 to 10
Welcome to the first installment of our YuGiOh! episode run-through. We've taken the hassle out of watching the early episodes for you, by arranging them in order, ready for viewing. On this page, you'll find the first ten YuGiOh! episodes from Series 1. The early episodes of YuGiOh! set the scene for everything that is to follow and introduce many of the most popular characters in the show.
Of course, fans will know that this isn't quite the beginning. A previous series, aired on TV Asahi, told some of the earlier story from the manga. Considered too violent for a kid's cartoon in the west, it has never been dubbed into English. If you want to see it, it's on Youtube with subtitles, but you'll need to search the epsiodes out for yourself. It explains more about the character's backgrounds and shows how Yugi, with Joey's help (kind of) first solved his Millenium Puzzle, releasing Dark Yugi for the first time. Like in the manga, the card game isn't central to the early part of the story.
In 2000 though, a new series began airing on TV Tokyo, and a year later made its US debut. The first episodes of this series set the scene, and see the characters travelling to Duelist Kingdom to take part in the Duel Monsters tournament hosted by Maximillian Pegasus. We meet the gang of Yugi, Joey, Tea and Tristan, plus characters like Seto Kaiba, Bakura and Mai Valentine. Head on down to episode 1, and whether you're watching these for the first time, or revisiting old favourites, enjoy.
News - November 2010 - All offical version episodes from the original YuGiOh! series have been removed again from everywhere online. We're not very sure why. We're sure they'll be back soon though.
UPDATE: All the previously sanctioned unofficial versions remain removed from Youtube and embedding has been disabled on the 4KidsTV official versions. Must be another legal dispute. Hopefully, we'll be able to get the episodes up and running again soon here, but in the meantime, you can watch them on the 4KidsTV channel on Youtube.
