Yu-Gi-Oh. You either know it as a children's card game, or a children's anime show. But oddly enough, there are people out there who don't know what Yu-Gi-Oh is - or rather, they do know what it is, and that's why they go out of their way to avoid it. But Yu-Gi-Oh: The Abridged Series is different. Here at the Abridged Series website, we take the very concept of Yu-Gi-Oh, and we rip out its guts, replacing them with a bunch of inappropriate, loosely connected pop culture references. Some say it's funny. Others disagree. We rip their guts out too. Our main goal is to reduce the series to a fraction of its actual length, making it more accessible to Joe Public. After all, does Joe Public want to watch hours upon hours of card games in the vain hope of catching the slightest shred of plot? And if so, then why? What is Joe's problem? Perhaps he should have taken that job at the restaurant when his wife told him to. Then maybe he wouldn't be divorced with overdue child support payments. That's why we do what we do. So that Joe's kids will know a better future. We're saving lives, people. Abridged style.
