Still is. ZEXAL's villain-du-jour, Tron, is up to some really twisted stuff. He mind raped one of his opponents because she was associated with the son of his sworn enemy. His story, basically, is that he and the main character's father were betrayed and "sacrificed" to an alternate dimension by the guy he's currently trying to get revenge on; the experience warped him both mentally and physically, but it doesn't exactly make him any more sympathetic, given that he looks like a masked ten-year-old whose face is almost always twisted into a psychotic smile. He's like Pegasus Crawford by way of Higurashi. >_>
For the record, I don't actually watch the show - I just keep up with the synopses. ^_^; God help me, I freakin' love the new Xyz monsters and the Numbers. Some of the stuff they've done with the card translations recently has been pretty clever, too, though there's still the occasional glitch.
