Duel Masters (デュエルマスターズ Dyueru Masutāzu) is an anime television series based on the Duel Masters franchise. It aired in Japan between October 21, 2002 and April 4, 2003, consisting of 26 episodes. The series aired on Cartoon Network between March 13, 2004 and June 17, 2006.

Dubbing History

The American version of Duel Masters added several things not in the original version, to make it more of a comedy, to separate it from other card battling shows on the market. Added to the American version were jokes about typical anime cliches such as split-screens and a missing father-figure (in this case, Shobu's father Shori). Frequent references are made throughout the show to pop culture phenomenons; as such, they recur as running gags during the course of the show. Another common form of humor found in the show is its breaking of the fourth wall. While the storyline is technically dramatic, most episodes are punctuated by a comedic storyline mixed in with the serious storyline.

The dubbing production of the series changed hands between each season. As a result, the voice cast would change between seasons (save for some characters between the second and third). The vocal changes would sometimes be lampooned by the characters in the series.
