A couple of months ago Kaijudo premiered on Rock’s favorite channel “the hub”. The show is based on the system of card game of the same name, which has become such a huge phenomenon in the last couple of years similar to Pokemon.
The show follows the exploits of a boy named Ray who can access a parallel dimension filled with crazy creatures. These creatures become his friends and also allow him to fight against Evil forces who want to capture and enslave his creature friends. It is up to Ray and his two friends to become Duel Masters so that they can help same themselves and the creatures from total extinction.
To help celebrate the premier of the show, Divina and I received a bunch of Kaijudo headbands that we brought to Paraguay and we had a big Kaijudo Party. We had ice cream, wore our headbands and watched the show. For the rest of the trip, Divina’s little cousins and our sons did not want to take off the headbands.
After watching the show, I was shocked on how grown up the animation is, the look of the show is very dynamic especially when you get to the duel scenes. While, I don’t think that the show is appropriate for Rock since he doesn’t really get the concept of the cards, I did notice that the cousins (both boys and girls) that were in the 7-11 range were really having a great time. I could definitely tell that the show is going to be a hit when I had requests to bring more episodes and cards the next time I visited.

Disclosure: I received Kaijudo screening, poster and headbands for a screener party but as always my post is my unbaised thoughts.
