Yu-Gi-Oh! Plot

First of all, let’s take a closer look at the plot of Yu-Gi-Oh! This anime follows the story of a young and ambitious boy named Yugi Mutou, who happens to solve the legendary Millennium Puzzle. It is said that whoever can uncover the secrets of this puzzle will be able to make one of his wishes a reality. Upon solving the puzzle, Yugi unleashes “Yami Yuugi” – a different conscious contained inside his own body.

Wishing to find out more regarding this strange spirit, Yugi ends up competing against many other people in Duel Monsters. Other players fight against Yugi in order to somehow steal the Millennium Puzzle and use its powers for themselves.

PLEASE NOTE: I will only be mentioning the best legal places to watch Yu-Gi-Oh online, so you might have to pay for a better experience.

5. Amazon Prime

Amazon Prime lets you watch almost the entire series, including the latest movie sequel. You can even watch most of the spin-offs on the platform as well. Most of the episodes are only available in English, so fans of the Japanese version will have to use some other platform.

Pros:

  • Almost the entire series is available in English.
  • You get to keep all the episodes that you purchase forever.
  • You can watch some of the episodes for free if you don’t mind the ads.

Cons:

4. NetflixYu-Gi-Oh! Netflix

Netflix also lets you watch Yu-Gi-Oh!, but sadly, only the first few seasons of the anime series are available on the platform for most regions, and you will need to be in the US in order to watch it. If you are not in the US, then you can use some kind of VPN service to temporarily change your virtual location and easily watch Yu-Gi-Oh. You can also find some spin-off series of Yu-Gi-Oh! on the platform.

How to Watch Yu-Gi-Oh! on Netflix via VPN

This method works on both desktop PCs and mobile phones or tablets.

  1. Purchase (or start a free trial) of a VPN. I can confirm that NordVPN works for this purpose.
  2. In the settings, choose the UK as your location.
  3. Fire up the VPN and wait for it to do its magic
  4. Once you’re connected, navigate to Netflix (browser or app)
  5. Search “Yu-Gi-Oh!” in the Netflix search bar and you should see Yu-Gi-Oh! pop up.

Enjoy! Please note that if your Netflix library doesn’t update to reflect the country you selected in your VPN, you may have to clear the Netflix cache first and try again.

To to do this, go to settings -> apps -> Netflix -> clear cache. I’ve had no trouble using this method and I still use NordVPN to watch anime from various Netflix country libraries daily.

Pros:

  • The anime is available in English.
  • The first month of streaming is free.
