To this day I'm annoyed the anime didn't give him much characterization.

I understand he was mostly a foil to Yami Bakura, but I feel like they could have done more. At least the manga had him have an interest in the supernatural - and he felt less like an awkward addition to the gang and more like a friend.

In the manga he had more interactions with the spirit [of the ring] too, which was interesting. Why is all of that gone?

SB I feel like a fangirl who's still salty her fave didn't get enough attention.

Did you watch The Dark Side of Dimensions? We get a little bit more about Bakura's backstory (though it only makes sense if you're going off the manga and not the anime). But yeah, I thought he was an interesting character in the manga and I like him in the anime, but I always wanted to hear a little more about him. He ended up being something of an afterthought in the anime and that still disappoints me.

I still haven't got to see DSoD yet! All my fellow YGO fans tell me I should see it when I have the chance cause he has some good moments, but I haven't got to yet.

Ah, I hope you get to see it soon! It was a pretty sweet nostalgia bomb and I was pleasantly surprised to see some backstory for Bakura.

Yeah, I agree with you. I thought he was painfully underused as a character - then again, so was Malik. Instead, we get all those scenes with Honda and all those minor one-note characters. Yeesh.
