Yomi was great until Battlecon buttblasted the shit out of his game and concept. Its like Guilty Gear/BlazBlue but as a card game. Also, the thing about "copied movies" is intentional because Yomi/Fantasy Strike was originally supposed to be a card game version of Street Fighter (NOT UFS RELATED!!) and capcom didnt support it so he just took the concepts and characters and basically made his own thing that apes the fundamentals and design of the street fighter concepts. If you dont like it? Oh well. If you want to talk about MORALITY, there was a thread about how sirlin used a fan gamer's art design (like outright stole) for the PNP version of Puzzle Strike. There was ALOT of stink about that in boardgame geek. I didnt pay much attention to it, I just know there was a bit of a stink about on their forums. And fair being fair, his version of Magic (Codex) is still alot better and more fully realized than most CCGs that use the concept.
As for the Fantasy Strike game itself, Friday Night Fisticuffs made a believer out of me for the concept it was going for. When i first saw it, I thought it looked kinda dumb. It still does, but its supposed to be for fun and the slow speed is because of how the life bar is. This aint supposed to be Marvel or Guilty Gear. This is supposed to be about tactics and fundamentals. Im still excited for it, if for no other reason than because Geiger is the shit, especially in Yomi. Looking forward to it.
