Beyblade

Beyblade

Beyblading is the latest rage; gyroscopes battle each other in different environments until one is knocked out. Only a true master can bring out a blade’s full potential and unleash the bitbeast within, though. To find out who the true blade master is, a tournament is held. While going up against a team of bio-enhanced beybladers, can the talented but hard-headed Tyson and his team, the Bladebreakers, master their bitbeasts and bring home the win?

Both Beyblade and Yu-Gi-Oh are anime meant for younger kids. These two are very similar in plot, as they revolve around a tournament in which mysterious items are used to fight, and only a true master can bring out their max potential in order to keep winning.

Both Yu-Gi-Oh and Beyblade contain strong themes of friendship and teamwork, and involve the need to collect items and engage in combat with peers.

Do you like anime in which characters battle each other by playing a game? Well then Yu-Gi-Oh and Beyblade are just the series for you. The characters take on their problems with a game of cards and spinning tops, respectively.

If you liked Beyblade or Yu-gi-oh, you'd probably like the other, as both have a lot of battles, rivalry, and challenges. I really recommend one for the other, for that reason.

Whether creatures are flying out of trading cards or battling tops, it doesn't matter. If you like big, powerful monsters and flashy effects along with them, either Beyblade or Yu-Gi-Oh will work for you.

jurexplay

Well, both series contain a story of friendship, loyalty and reaching the final gool after many hardships. Some may think that these anime are just kids shows aired in the moring on TV but they can make you addicted in no time. The stories are quite good and at some point of the show you wolud want to be one of the characters. That's the best proof that these series are fairly better than nowadays commercial sh*t.

Both are made for more of a Younger audience, They both also battle with things, and may have many tournaments.

Kari5

Both of these shows are big flashy shounen titles. If you like tons of episodes, tournaments, best friend speeches, and over-the-top children's card games with a supernatural twist, then these shows are for you.

Pokemon

Yu-Gi-Oh and Pokemon are about battling with monsters. Whether it is through a card or a Pokeball, it is just about the same concept. You should watch them both.

vernanonix

Yugi and Ash both have goals, which they reach using tools of their trade. For Ash, it's his Pokemon; for Yugi, it's his cards. Both series involve strategic battles, flashy monsters, and a little humor on occasion. With such similarities, who could love one and not the other?

freakzilla

Pokemon and YuGiOh both appeal a younger audience using well-drawn monsters to engage in battle. Both include some fighting and some tactics in their battles, yet keep the overall tone relaxed and more aimed towards children.

Kari5

People compete in competitions, train, and enjoy friendly matches with their friends-these are basic themes in Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh. On the way to become the best in the world at pokemon trainning or dueling, the main characters learn about themselves and the people around them.

Daemon666

The overall feel, the description, the genre, these two animes are so alike that it's impossible to hate one if you liked the other. To describe one is to essentially decribe the other. If you grew up watching one you grew up watching the other. 

Cardfight!! Vanguard

Cardfight!! Vanguard

Move over, solitaire! Cardfight Vanguard is the card game that all the kids these days are playing. Using carefully prepared decks, players battle it out for fame and glory – the first to receive six damage points loses. After a bully takes Aichi's special card, the boy learns Vanguard to win it back and finds himself inexplicably drawn into the sport. Now determined to prove his skills to himself, as well as to the legendary player Toshiki Kai, Aichi climbs the ranks of Vanguard, making new friends and challenging fierce competitors along the way.

Cardfight is nearly identical to duel monsters. Going beyond the elemental fact of both revolving around a card game, they both feature a meek boy who owns a card which is precious to him for reasons having nothing to do with the game, and who then has said card stolen by an obnoxious punk, then must go on a card dueling adventure to try to get his special card back. Even the special cards themselves are very similar, with both being very powerful cards and having very similar looking white armor. If you wanted more yu-gi-oh, then cardfight is for you. If you can't wait for more episodes of cardfight, yu-gi-oh will keep you happy.

Cardfight!! Vanguard is Yu-Gi-Oh 2011. Just the first episode filled me with nostalgia for my days spent at the local bookstore playing children's trading card games. If your craving more card games, look no further.

Renegadefalls

Vanguard is almost a carbon copy of yu-gi-oh! Vanguard has the same style as yu-gi-oh! with the only difference being the rules to the card game itself.

The primary card of Aichi the main character, Blast Blade, has a strikingly similar name to that of one of Yugi's most powerful monsters, Buster Blader.

Both of these shows has a type of game where they challenge one another. One has a virtual card game and the other has a variety of life size puzzles. There is a punishment for losing during special games. The main characters even have items that make them better at the game. They repeat the game almost every episode. There is also a villian at points trying to ruin the game or destory the world.

vernanonix

Both of these anime, at their basis, feature some ordinary plaything brought on to a large scale competition with dangerous consequences. Both series can jump back and forth from serious to humorous with thair colorful casts of characters. And of course, the main character is a natural genius at whatever it is the series focuses on.
