Yu-gi-oh and Digimon Tamers have a lot in common. First off, the shows are both based on card games. But, the games become more than games, the monsters in the cards become 'real' and the characters in the series have to fight using the cards and the monsters. The fate of the world lies in the hands of those with the cards and the skills.

Takamine Kiyomaro is a junior high school student who thinks he’s too smart for school, to the disappointment of his mother.

In return, Kiyomaro must help discover the secrets behind Gash Bell’s amnesia and his past, with only a red book as a clue. As if things weren’t crazy enough, Kiyomaro soon discovers that Gash Bell is a demon -- one of many on Earth -- who can be forced back to the demon world if its corresponding book is burned. Armed with the power of the red book, Kiyomaro must now help Gash Bell defend himself against other demons who want to vanquish him from the Earth, lest his newfound friend vanish forever!

Yu-Gi-Oh! and Zatch Bell are very similar in the fact that there is battling within the show and the basis is the battling. The only difference is that ZatchBell is little monster things and Yu-Gi-Oh! has cards.

Hikaru no Go

Hikaru no Go

While examining an old Go board in his grandfather's basement, twelve-year-old Shindo Hikaru is possessed by the restless spirit of Sai, an ancient Go master who has waited for over one thousand years to play the Hand of God: the perfect move. Sai convinces Hikaru to act as a vessel for making his moves, but it is soon clear that Hikaru also enjoys Go and wants to play his own games. Moreover, the rules of Go have changed since Sai's time, and Go players from all over the world are now much stronger, having had the benefit of hundreds of years of evolution and experimentation by the masters before them. Can this unlikely pair form a successful partnership and rise to the top of Japan's Go community, and can Sai finally play the Hand of God and find some peace?
