Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Yu-Gi-Oh! Sevens is an installment of the popular Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise that is geared toward tweens. Like its predecessors, it's based on a card game that was released along with the start of the series. There's lots of fantasy violence, but it's slightly toned down when compared to other Yu-Gi-Oh! fare. Rebellion against, and improving, the traditional way of doing things is a major theme, but it doesn't offer a lot of teachable moments. Younger kids may find what's happening a little confusing at times, but the show's still lively enough to be entertaining if they like anime.
Is It Any Good?
This installment of the lively fantasy action series, which is geared toward tween audiences, features the youngest protagonist in the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise. There's also plenty of youth-oriented humor and slightly toned-down fantasy violence. However, there are lots of details that younger kids new to the universe may find difficult to follow. Older fans might appreciate the show's overall narrative about rebelling against the establishment, but thanks to the different animation style and storytelling approach, chances are that Yu-Gi-Oh! Sevens won't be their favorite spin-off.
