You know that when something comes to fruition and then it becomes so popular you hate to see it die, it just doesn't. What I mean to say this time is that while Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's was thought to be the last anime series of the popular card game for real, even this doesn't mark the end of it. Apparently, a new series known as Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL is preparing to take over where 5D's will end airing in Japan beginning next spring in 2011. One thing this really means is that 5D's is gonna come to an end real soon, meaning that Road to Destiny must be the last story arc. Hmm, the first Yu-Gi-Oh! anime series consisted of five seasons, GX had four, and 5D's had only two, or three if you count the first two story arcs as separate seasons. Also, their total episode numbers have been getting fewer and fewer, with the first anime having over 200 while GX had less than 200, 180 to be precise. Is 5D's gonna end with 150 altogether? It's a magic number, but it would make the longest season ever due to more than exceeding an average 50-52 episodes. This new series along with a fifth generation of Pokémon and a sixth season of Digimon (Xros Wars in Japan), along with seemingly never-ending television shows Pokémon and The Simpsons, is going to show that once something reaches fame and/or popularity, it never truly dies.
