Voted for VRAINS. Myself and many others probably wouldn't be here if it wasn't for DM, but VRAINS was the one I followed the most religiously, eagerly awaiting the next episode and the next one while it was running. Am so sad it had to stop.

Most people I know like GX but I can't say it's for me, lol.

If there was a Tag Force game that had Link Summoning, I'd surely be making more videos than the very few I have so far, but I still enjoy it either way!

I'm that GX vote up there. 
It's not the best in plot quality, it's not the best in gameplay IRL (god knows the GX era is like the dark ages for getting sealed packs because of how much specific junk with underpowered qualities you were bound to pull)... and when it was in its original run, I actually hated it seeing as how its tone was almost a mockery of the franchise compared to the original, and by the end I was eager to see 5DS replace it (which even to this day is an almost even spot in the top for me in my rankings). Not only that, it has some stuff I just feel ashamed to even know like how Jaden took down Sartorious' satellite xD

Yet, now with more series I no longer compare it strictly to DM and accept its town as its own thing, and I actually enjoy it a lot tbh. I haven't come back to rewatch episodes of any other series of Yugioh like I did this one. The power level when the plays work (and in the anime it pretty much goes guaranteed) is pretty fun and although not as complex as the modern game it is one that when I've experienced I know it leaves one wanting a rematch, while more modern gameplay like VRAINS stuff drains me and I eventually gotta go for a break more quickly. The characters also are among my favorite ones. Bonds Beyond Time Jaden is my favorite MC in the entire franchise and Bastion is my favorite non MC character. 

Other series have a bit of a tighter storyline too like, you can go to Arcana vs Yugi and you know exactly where they were coming to and where they were going to in a tight schedule with stakes, but GX I can find random nonsense and even though there ARE stakes often enough, it is like they lived through more days (and fair enough they spent 3 years in academy) and well, IDK exactly why it is but I feel a bit more breathing room there. 
***shrugs***

Even the best ones here have insufferable issues so I'm not saying it's any master piece, but it is a guilty pleasure xD

The original one. Yeah, it has its share of...stupid in it. But I really liked it. I liked how grounded and serious it felt, the MYRIAD of occult themes, the characters, the soundtrack. Even the Japanese version has a few bangers.

I didn't originally watch GX until the Supreme King Arc. But I accept it by now as a nice anime. It was more campy and silly in the first season, but at least it had some likeable characters. Even early on. And soonafter raised the stakes. And of course, occult themes.

I loved 5D's. I was doubtful of Synchro monsters. And now it's my favorite type of Extra Deck card! The stakes are high enough, likeable characters, occult themes, ect. It's just a damn shame what became of it after the Earthbound Arc. And the...nothing story Crow had. I was more interested in Aki's story from the manga. But nope! Blackwings were selling the best, so we have to can Aki and Leo's stories/arcs. Oh, also the censors in the dub are sad.

A lot of people bash on Zexal. I myself liked it. Even in dub. I liked seeing Yuma grow. And we had some nice characters along the way. Xyz Summoning was nice and easy. Sure, Yuma wasn't as easy to take seriously as Yugi or Yusei, but he didn't actively piss me off.

Arc-V, I dropped after the first season. From the animes I've seen, Yuya was my least favorite protagonist. But I watched this anime like I watched .hack//SIGN. Enjoying every character BUT our protagonist. I liked Zexal more than this anime.

 

And I can't properly judge VRAINS or Sevens. But...neither looked captivating to me

The first season isn't well-paced and had issues. It takes a while to pick up, but it does. Imo even DM takes a while to pick up, or even pick up a rulebook. Creates a barrier to entry compared to some other hit anime that catch you by Ep1 or Ep2.

Just saw that 5D's  is voted by 3 people. but well...I  like the old animes more then the new like sevens or zexal....my favourite at all is  5D's (So i finished watching it already). Started to  watch Vrains but stoped after 3 episodes  and kinda saw through childhood the first Yugioh anime. At moment i am at the last saison  of GX  and and  watch it with a friend. but super slow... Also i think Arc V  is nice even i never finished it because of the concept  of Dimensions and bringing back Characters  from the Animes before it.

Well, after all  5D's my favourite :D
