Ok, Yu-Gi-Oh! goes beyond the cartoon. It has been around since 1996, started in Japan. Since they use a mostly Egyptian theme, things of this nature
are common place. In fact, the "eye" is a main image in the show itself. As for the trading card game, I just think it's fun! I happen to play it,
and find that it's a good passtime with friends every now and then. And I am 20, so it seem pathetic as well. LMAO. anyhow, I highly doubt they have
subliminal messages, but I could be wrong.
Think about it...it's just a card game and cartoon. the manga (comic) was around before the card game, and the card game existed before the TV show.
And they sold like hotcakes in Japan. They only really have TV show because american kids seem to only like things they see on TV. Use the TV show to
promote the product, use the product to promote the TV show. The endless capitalist cycle, if you will. THAT'S the problem in my eyes. A card game
can be fun, but we need to ween our kids off of all the television they watch.
ugh...had to edit for typos...
