Being in San Antonio – with family – is always fun. I love seeing each one of my nieces and nephews, my sisters, my mother and yes, even my brother-in-law. And though there is always something going on at their house, I always plan my summer trips around parties that I have set to host.
With 11-12 kids and six to seven adults in the house, at any given time, it’s easy to gather them in one room to have some fun. And that’s just what we did.
The girls and I were sent a nice party pack for our viewing party of Kaikudo: Rise of the Duel Masters. It was awesome. Everyone loved their head bands and couldn’t wait to watch episodes 2 and 3. And since that time, the episodes have been watched another dozen times or more. The boys love Ray and all the “cool” creatures in the show. The girls love Allie and Nadia (because they’re so pretty).
We were sent a few recipes (as suggestions) for feeding the hungry crowd of kids after the show, but we had other plans – we headed for Chili’s…and you guessed it. The kids sported their Kaijudo bands. They even got compliments from the waitresses & waiters on their bands.
Needless to say, this party was a huge success. The kids enjoyed the show, all us parents enjoyed the kids’ enthusiasm towards the show (as well as their gifts)…and me, well I enjoyed being able to provide the kids with something fun to experience like the Kaijudo party.
A Dad’s Take:
I asked my brother-in-law, Walter, what he thought about the show (since he watched the episodes with us) and this is what he had to say:
I think the show was great. The kids seemed to like it just fine and it was really nice to see that it kept their attention on the TV through most of it.
This show is similar to other shows where kids are in charge of creatures and there job is to defend the earth by fighting villains. But I liked it anyway. What I like most was the duels, but the characters, animation (it’s not so “cartoony”) and the creatures weren’t to bad either.
In the end, I didn’t see anything wrong with the show and could see letting the kids watch it again.
About Kaijudo: Rise of the Duel Masters
Ray, a 14-year-old who lives with his mom and granddad, has been recruited by the Duel Masters to study Kaijudo: The Way of the Creature. They chose Ray for his natural talent as a creature tamer and duelist. Along with his pals Allie and Gabe, Ray learns to work with the magical creatures…in their world. Each duel he fights yields new experience and allies in both worlds. The Veil, which has divided the two worlds for a thousand years, is crumbling. Hope lies with those who can master the art of Kaijudo.

I personally enjoyed watching Kaijudo with the kids. Walter (my brother-in-law) was right in the sense that it is similar to other cartoons, however. It is a show all its own and it’s something the kids really enjoyed watching.
