It is Japan’s most popular science fiction samurai series taken in feudal Japan during an era of alien colonization.

Yugioh 3D Bonds Beyond Time, on the other hand, is set in the future where civilization is at the brink of extinction. Paradox, a man from the future returns in the past to destroy what he believes caused the world to decay – the Duel Monsters card game.
