View Full Version : ARC-V Episode 107 Discussion: Mai & Tania vs Anna & Kotori

This episode we have the Tyler Sisters vs Sayaka and Allen. Rather ganging up on Sayaka first and Allen coming in to help her, the duel is a tag duel from the start. Unlike previous Tag Duels, this one is not in Battle Royal style. Both players share the same field, the same Life and the Graveyard. The Tyler Sisters already have a fearsome retribution in Heartland, but the Xyz duo realizes this too late. Sayaka uses a Fairy deck, using cheerleaders like Kotori, while Allen Kozuki uses Trails (if his name wasn't obvious enough). The Tyler Sisters use Amazoness decks and their ace monsters reference Mai Kujaku and Tania. The silver-haired Grace uses Amazoness Pet Liger, referencing Tania's true form and her Amazoness Pet Tiger which Grace even has. The blond Gloria uses Amazoness Empress who resembles Mai. Their playing style is reminiscent to the tag dueling style of the Masks of Light and Darkness, with Gloria using lots of monsters like Mask of Darkness while Grace supports her with her Spell and Trap Cards like Mask of Light.

One Tribute Summoning, two Fusion Summonings and two Xyz Summonings. Well, you might have already expected the outcome.
Thanks to Sayaka's Spell Card, her Fairy Cheer Girl cannot be destroyed by battle, but that doesn't stop the sisters to inflict damage. They also focus more on Sayaka than Allen because it is more fun. While the kids don't play bad, they never gain the advantage during the duel. Pet Liger has only 2500 ATK, but it can increase its ATK during the Damage Step, decrease the ATK of other monsters and it can negate attacks. Empress has the classic "everyone can inflict Piercing Damage" like Dragonbane King Beowulf, which brings them the victory. The strangest part is when Grace activates a card that allows her to Special Summon an Amazoness from her hand, but it's from Gloria's instead.

Before they could card the kids, Gongenzaka and Sawatari comes in, tell them they are Lancers (well, Sawatari tells it, which I actually don't see as another idiot moment) and the Sisters lose interest on the kids and wanna eat the two guys, if you know what I mean.

No Ruri.


The sisters remain calm for most of the duel, showcasing their confidence in their skills and they seek after satisfaction (Kiryu's manzoku). This duel doesn't satisfy them at all. When they finally meet the Lancers, they get pretty excited (or horny). No complains for the art. This episode show the sisters in their glory and gracefulness. Rather than complete jerks, they are more of the arrogant-duelist type, only less cocky, which is something typical for GX female duelist I guess?

Edo is very angry about the fact that he didn't win against Yuya.

By the way, at the beginning of the episode Allen still doesn't see the Lancers as his comrades. Maybe Yuya will get the chance to redeem himself in front of kids. Also, we got ship tease between Allen and Sayaka.

The next episode has another tag duel, that time it's the Tylers vs Yuya and Kurosaki and they will share the same field, as evidenced by Yuya overlaying his Xiangsheng Magician and Kurosaki's Singing Lanius. The next episode seems to be very intense.

I liked all the new cards; Sayaka misplaying made me sad by her reaction, meanwhile the sisters were freaking awesome, especially in the battle aura part (that new Main Deck monster was way better than few of the old ones, Liger too). Is sad that The Man and Sawatari will be fodderized off-screen...

Actually, I cannot recognize anything on those pictures, because of the bad resolution. But the colors of Turn Toad are indeed very similar to those of Shuns Pendulum card. Now I just want to know, why it is on his disk. Yu-Gi-Oh! logic I guess...

It is not impossible that Kurosaki would use Yuya's cards. After all, Grace retrieved Gloria's Scout with The Warrior Returning Alive. Maybe Kurosaki get a recycled or bounced card (the latter is more likely).

His deck can already swarm the field by its own. Pendulum Cards might just be a waste of space.

Turn Toad is basically just Raptor's Intercept Form, so why not. I guess it's better to reuse someone else's cards instead of starting to create the most situational cards you can imagine, like in the ZeXal times (and in the Cipher deck)

Though I would bet on Scales 2 and 7, to include the level 3 and 6 RRs. But I guess that won't happen. Hopefully Yuya doesn't steal Shun the show, if he even uses his monsters to summon DRXD...

Kudos to you for pointing out Allen's last name and called he'll use train before.
Yuzu and Serena uses new archetypes though. But who knows, she probably won't even duel once, depends on how much longer this anime will last.


Those siblings won't stand a chance if he used the Rank 10 trains. 3000 ATK/DEF powerhouse and 2000 burn to the face? Yeah..

I seems that Sawatari and Gongenzaka will get rekt fast in the next episode.
Shun, don't you dare to make a Rise Falcon 1st turn noob play like last time.
No PK - RR tag duel? Daym..

High ATK only make you lose faster against Amazoness Swordswoman (http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Amazoness_Swords_Woman_(anime)) (which he had to attack because of Amazoness Substitution (http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Amazoness_Substitution)). And burn strategies make you lose against Amazoness Magical Mirror (http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Amazoness_Magical_Mirror). The siblings were prepared perfectly for a power deck like Trains.

Empress gaining Queen's blanket battle immortality for Amazoness? I could see that happening. Amazoness deck just love to shut everything against them out. Fighter flips battle damage, this new mirror flips burn damage, tributing Scouts grants immunity to targeting and effect indestructibility for Amazoness monsters. I think they just need a consistent revolving door for reborning Scouts from the grave.

Kurosaki having Pendulums has nothing to do with story. Gongenzaka having Pendulum doesn't contribute anything to the story either and they don't make his deck necessarily better; a nice option, but not a must. Kurosaki doesn't need them. Raidraptors don't need them. Also, why do you assume that Yuya would do it all by himself? It's a Tag Duel. Yuya won't win this duel without Kurosaki's cards. And Kurosaki cannot win without Yuya's cards. And if it comes against Special Summoning, Kurosaki is more suitable than Yuya, so both of them have their crucial parts.

I honestly can't see why it would; he's already got the trust of the Lancers and is learning to try and open the hearts of his fellow Resistance members (like Kite) to be less hard-hearted toward people. He doesn't need Pendulums to teach him the spirit of Egao, he's already got it, he just needs to foster it a bit more...

Seeing how Pendulums buffed Lunalights a lot and gave more brokeness to Dennis' Performages, RR Pendulums are something to be really hyped for.

The thing is that Dennis got more than just two Pendulum Cards and his Main Deck, becoming the same type of deck as Yuya's. Lunalights and Superheavy Samurai got only two. You can't Pendulum Summon the Superheavy Samurai Pendulum Monsters, unless you have scale manipulation. And you cannot Pendulum Summon Lunalight Wolf without scale manipulation. Having a useless Pendulum Card in your Extra Deck that you cannot re-summon takes half of the Pendulum Card's type advantage.

The Superheavies cannot Pendulum Summon Big Benkei, a monster that is relatively easy to summon without Pendulum Summoning.
And Lunalights benefit more from their Pendulum Effects than from the summoning mechanic itself. And there is a huge difference between Lunalight and RR. RR are very splashable, but Lunalights are not. They have their ways (Perfume, White Rabbit, Purple Butterfly), but they are not that spam-friendly. So they needed more support.

The worst that could happen is that Kurosaki get Pendulum Cards that he cannot Pendulum Summon. Pendulum RRs in the Graveyard wouldn't be a problem, since they are easy to recycle, but if they are stuck on top of the Extra Deck, then they lose half of their purpose.

Having a useless Pendulum Cards in your Extra Deck that you cannot re-summon takes half of the Pendulum Card's type advantage.

The Superheavies cannot Pendulum Summon Big Benkei, a monster that is relatively easy to summon without Pendulum Summoning.
And Lunalights benefit more from their Pendulum Effects than from the summoning mechanic itself. And there is a huge difference between Lunalight and RR. RR are very splashable, but Lunalights are not. They have their ways (Perfume, White Rabbit, Purple Butterfly), but they are not that spam-friendly. So they needed more support.

The worst that could happen is that Kurosaki get Pendulum Cards that he cannot Pendulum Summon. Pendulum RRs in the Graveyard wouldn't be a problem, since they are easy to recycle, but if they are stuck on top of the Extra Deck, then they lose half of their purpose.

True, RR Pendulums would need extremly strong effects to make them worth running. But i still have my hopes up... :rolleyes:

Also, speaking of Dennis, is there any chance that his Pendulums and Shadow Maker will ever be printed? I still find it strange that only halve of his deck made it into the game, while the other half is anime-only.

I'm secretly hoping we get a Harpie duelist from Xyz dimension get forced to duel the Tyler twins. Just for one episode.

Okay, so it might have been kinda obvious as a likely possibility, but for the love of us all, don't put indicative spoilers like that in the blasted title next time.
Do you actually expected that Mai, Tania, Anna and Kotori would appear in ARC-V, despite the episode's title, the preview and Allen's name made it obvious who uses which deck? It's non indicative, it's non-indicative.

Given that Allen also takes inspiration from Nistro (Gauche) then it wasn't entirely obvious, no.

Right, finally to give my thoughts on this episode.

This episode was excellent. Sure, the meat of the matter will come next episode, but this episode was animated by the always amazing Hidekazu Ebina of Episode 34 and 45 legend, and thus an already entertaining episode became absolutely gorgeous. Speaking of gorgeous, the Tyler sisters make their debut as a force to be reckoned with, and unlike the Obelisk Forces' mauling of Ancient Gears, the Amazoness are largely original cards and yet still extremely in-theme, especially their Fusions.

Allen and Sayaka were always going to end up as fodder, but they contributed to the episode just as much, if not more than the Tyler sisters. For those of us who adored ZEXAL, seeing Allen pull out an array of Railway cards from that series, in addition to a well-fitting Rank 4 was a joy to watch, especially when he slapped down Limiter-frickin'-Removal and used the drawback to his advantage. Sayaka's deck, while less entertaining, was still pleasant (surely I can't be the only one who was holding back squees when she discarded the old-school Dancing Fairy, eeeee!)

In addition to the cards, this episode served to introduce a lot of personality for all of the participants. As I thought, Sayaka is going to be instrumental in resolving Kite's subplot, and she goes through some subtle development which is probably going to take a hit after this little clash. Allen on the other hand isn't being an asshole to the Lancers, just to Yuya, something that he makes clear this episode. Giving me more of a reason to dislike this kid. The Tyler sisters on the other hand come off as rather polite for Duel Academy, being just as insulting and terrifying as one would expect, but praising improvements in moves. Of course, we have yet to see what will happen when they likely get at least one "Oh Crap" moment. In addition we get some hilarity from Noroma-chan, who I will enjoy every moment of his inevitable chew-toy status. But Aster steals the show with thirty seconds of pure rage at the end that have me wondering how the hell this arc can even progress with such rage. Maybe we'll get some plot after the next episode.

In summation, a gorgeous episode with an excellent duel and some well-done character interactions.

I think the kids did better than I thought they would. Of course Sayaka was gonna struggle. Shining draw reference was nice.

Sawatari and Gong have completely fallen off the respectability scale if they get beat off screen. That's about as low as it gets and that's pretty sad because I do respect Gong (Sawatari can go get carded).

Considering that Shun and Yuya are two of the strongest good guys we know, I have a feeling the next duel won't be as exciting. I like the Tyler Sisters as characters but their boss monsters I don't find entertaining for some reason. Whatever, we'll see how it goes.

How dare you! The Great Neo New Sawatari DEMANDS your respect. He's not a bad duelist at all. He doesn't have plot armor cards because he's not the main character but he is capable of solid thought-out strategy. How was he supposed to know 2 Lv4 monsters on the field were going into a R8NK summon instead of R4NK?

In addition, the man is understandably vulnerable to piercing.

Since the average DEF of his monsters is higher than the average ATK of other decks, I doubt that this matters.

In my opinion, Sawatari and Gongenzaka are completely wasted in this arc. Don't forget that Sawatari almost beat Yugo, who just won because of top decking. And Gongenzaka is not only the best supportive duelist in Tag Duels, he also almost beat Yuya (even if it was a weaker Yuya than now).

But I'm afraid, with Reiji being away right now, Shun is the tritagonist of this Arc (now problem with this), after Yuya and Yuzu, and that all other characters will just be fodder from now on (which I hate, since Arc V did very well with not doing so during the first two arcs).

I was looking over all the different duelists in the Genex Tournament Arc of GX and I think, if Sora has to duel an Academia specialty-Duelist, I'd like it to be someone using an Alice the Wondering Doll (http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Alice) deck restructured for Fusion plays. Just revise Doll Chimera as a Fusion monster.

Amazoness as a whole like to boost ATK and we still haven't seen the full effect of Empress.

Plus, more DEF = more damage from Amazoness Swords Woman.

Depending on how they handle it, that could easily be the creepiest duel ever. "Possessed stuffed animals, rip the disturbing dolls to shreds!"

That's unexpected...
After Shun was shown so prominently in the OP, and with his Ruri Rescue mission still unfinished, as well as the relationship with Sayaka teased in the OP, I can hardly believe Shun will be carded by the Obelisk Force, after he defeated the Tyler Sisters...

They have no reason to do this. After all, Dennis should be the only one in Academia who even knows Shun.

By the way, Asuka said that the Professor just wanted to invade the other dimensions to take control of them, and that he has no greater plan to unite the dimensions (or at least I understood it that way), but why does he need Rin, Ruri, Yuzu and Selena then?

Because this is a collectible card game and he wants the entire dimension girl collection. Obviously. Preferably all in shiny rarities. ;P Do you think when the Academia cards people that the cards come out in different rarities?

I guess Commons will of course be Commons.

The resistance would be Secret Rare.
The carded civilians from the Xyz dimension would also be Commons BTW.
And since we now have KC rare, Reiji would be Leo Corporation Rare.

I definitely agree that he's not bad. I wish they made him stronger though. If he got a Pendulum deck that could absolutely abuse Pendulums, I'd respect that. But of course, like you said, since he's not main so he gets no love which I don't like. Seeing Gong and him getting fodderized by ladies off-screen is utter BS. How can writers just do that to their own characters? I would have been very entertained seeing that duel go down on-screen. Seeing Yuya and Shun constantly duel gets a little old after awhile

To be fair, there are archetypes that manipulate Levels for higher Ranks. Even Hokuto did it... all the time. Sawatari has barely experience with Xyz Duelists and Kaito was only his second one.

If he had dueled more Xyz duelist, he could have learn about players who manipulate Levels. Maybe he would have got better preparation. Knowing that guys like Kurosaki don't manipulate Levels, Sawatari is too inexperienced to figure that out.
