To rescue Cure Windy and Cure Egret (how they split into two people is a mystery) from the fangs of Labyrinth (even though they are from a different series), Funny-Yuya and ZEXAL-Kaiba go to the towers where the sun rises and where the sun sets down. Funny-Yuya faces the male version of Eas, while ZEXAL-Kaiba faces the female version of Westar. That's my obligatory Pretty Cure joke.

Nothing spoiler-tag-worthy this episode.

Anyway, the episode starts with Yugo being teleported to Academia, and he lands with his D-Wheel in the middle of a class lecture. Thankfully, the floors are wide enough that he don't run anyone over with his D-Wheel and his driving skills. Next to the Professor is an old man and his hair looks a lot like Goodwin's. He seems to be responsible for manipulating the girls. And he has a spider motif, apparently...

Yusho, Asuka and Kaito arrive at Academia and Yugo meets them, so he could learn about the two towers. The Lancers are on the way to arrive to the island and they talk about the plot. Thanks to Sora, we get a wonderful and sad shot of all four Bracelet Girls.

Kaito duels Diana and Yugo duels Apollo. Those two guardians are so unimportant, they don't get actual faces. There is nothing unique to them. They basically use the same monster with almost the same effect, only of the opposite sex and different Fusion Materials, and they run the same Trap Card. Of course, Yugo and Kaito do the unpredictable and summon their ace monsters in their first turn like they've never done that. Both guardians try to seal the effects of the two dragons and stall the duel, only with Apollo using a burn strategy, while Diana uses a recovery strategy. However, both, Yugo and Kaito use the same strategy: clearing the Tokens from the board with their dragons and then upgrading their dragons in the middle of the Battle Phase. Both end the duel in an epic way, especially Kaito with his Neo-Galaxy-Eyes and Galaxy-Eyes double attack. So yeah, Solgaleo and Lunala don't last a single round.

We finally see Ruri and Rin. Ruri meets Kaito, and Rin and Yugo are reunited and she goes full tsundere on him. But since you know what is going on, yeah... THAT SMILE IS FUCKING CREEPY!! That and Yugo's face are definitely going to be memes.

Now for the preview:

-Kurosaki has finally recovered and he and Edo meet with Kaito. Apparently, Kurosaki will duel Ruri.
-Rin duels Yugo and she is "infect with what I call the Fusion virus". Uhh...
-Edo does his smug faces from the first GX season 2 episodes before he went full emo.

This episode was not that interesting. New SR cards are ok, the person next to the Professor reminds me of Sartorius...
But the preview...oh boy


Shun is back with Edo? damn. Also more RR cards with the duel with Ruri (I wouldnt hold my hopes, no Shun cards confirmed for raging Tempest)
Seems like Rin is playing a mix of Meklord (art wise) and Butterspy-esque-speedroids.
Also Ruri is playing Ice cards (lets hope for Rio's cards someday).

I am a bit hyped for many new cards, finally a few ep without Yuya and his circus...

-Holy shit, did Ruri just push Kaito off the tower and Rin destroy Yugo's D-Wheel in the preview?
-Calling it, the Fusion Parasite card is the method that Godwin expy uses to control the girls.
-Rin's Fusion really looks like a Meklord. And did the other monster belong to Ruri or Rin?
About the episode itself, nothing to say, the mooks lasted just 1 round but at least we got another Speedroid searcher and the finishing moves were epic.

Well, he is the main character, of course he duels a lot. But you have to admit that he was in center of the whole Yuya-Yusho-Edo plot, he had a history with Kachidoki, and he had to deal with Kaito. He didn't do much in the pirate episode, the spotlight was given to Sora instead.

Nothing to say about this episode, as already stated, only the new supports and the finishing moves were noteworthy, as well as the final scenes and the preview, because they gave us some story development. Also lots of scary faces this episode.

And the effect of Parasite Fusioner (http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Parasite_Fusioner) is actually pretty good in many decks, just combine it with One for One (finally good D-HERO and Predator Plant support?)

You can have flashy duels that are actually related to the plot. Kaito is still spamming Cipher Wings, and while his new RUM is nice, he needs an actual main deck. Sora's explanation of the Ruris amount to what we already know. Yugo gets two cards; admittedly one is VERY good but the other is just a gimmick to allow him to drop a Crystal Wing during the BP and OTK.

It requires using itself for the Fusion, and Melodious Fusions require Melodious Materials. Even if it its a substitute material, it can't replace Materials listed by archetype.

Average episode but I can deal with the quickness of this episode when I see that Apollo and Diana aren't real threats. Crystal Wings attack reminded me of Stardust like it usually does while the Ciphers were a thing of beauty while the light shined on Kaito.

I think there's an obvious reason that Sora had the dialogue to go over what he thinks Leo Akaba wants. Sora, like all of the characters, has the theory that Leo is after the Yuzus to unlock something. But many of us audience feel that this thinking of the characters is flawed and that Leo's true aim is to unite the 4 Yus. Leo knows that Yusho is in Academia and wants to show him the "truth" whatever that is. I do question whether Leo knows of Yuya's inner darkness and if that's why he's trying to unite the 4 Yus. If Berserk Darkness Yuya is extremely powerfull, why would Leo want to unleash a threat to him like that? Unless maybe Leo can control Berserk Yuya. So the guessing game continues which is one of the biggest draws to this show

The next episode has major hype. That monster Rin brings out looks strong to me. Maybe she really is better than Yugo. Plus Yugo's visor is broken so looks like there's going to be carnage.

On the flip side, the oft angry Shun duels his little sister. Let's see if the ruthlessness of either him or Kaito remains against the lovely Ruri. Also Yuto seems to have the least attachment to his girl. Shun obviously and even Kaito have a stronger connection than Yuto. Maybe because Yuto is just a soul now but still.

What I could identify from that image is:
DD Crow (dunno if it is a typo of D.D Crow).
Chimeratech Overdragon.
Chimeratech Rampage Dragon.
Gatling Dragon.

Ans btw, the Poly with the negative symbol on it was there because the example the professor showed was that the Fusion Summon would be a failure if one of the AG Dogs was destroyed with Raigeki Break.

The odd thing is that Academia students are technically the smartest people in all 4 dimensions. Because the Academia curriculum includes teaching about the other summoning methods. Therefore, Academia students know about Synchro, Xyz and Pendulum (and Ritual). Whereas as other dimension inhabitants only know of their dimension's summoning method and don't even know others exist until intervention occurs (Sora teaching Yuzu Fusion or Roger bringing Fusion to the Synchro dimension).

Also I wouldn't say Poly is bad because that was in regard to Raigeki Break, but it's also odd that Academia users don't use another summoning method to go along with Fusion despite having knowledge of them all. Maybe writers want to keep the Academia characters pure as only Fusion users. Maybe they have too much pride in their Fusion. Maybe Synchros don't work well with Fusion and Xyz are from hated scum. But variety would be nice

Seeing how smug they are, the students probably don't want to use "inferior" methods. Take for example when Sora called Shun Xyz Scum, or when he gave no fucks about Dueling Yaiba, because he wasn't an Xyz (the ones he hunts) or Fusion (to prove that he is superior) user like Hokuto and Masumi. Although I bet Leo will use all the methods as a symbol of him wanting to join the 4 Dimensions.

For some reason i feel like Leo will use DD. But his DDDs will all have like 4000(rounding down) attack. It would make sense to show how much higher he is than everyone else. I know there were qliphort and infernoid rumors tho

Like I said in another thread: Sacred Beast retrains. He fuses Traps for new!Uria, he tunes Spells for new!Hamon, and finally he overlays 3 Level 10 Fiends for new!Raviel. That would be badass. Leo using D/Ds would be very lackluster, because these are Reiji's Deck.

This would be insanely creative! I'd love to see that go down. Each of the new!Sacred Beast would have to have really strong effects though. Something ridiculous like new!Hamon saying "Neither player can Special Summon monsters from their Extra Deck, except Synchro monsters" would be crippling enough. That would still keep Reiji, Reira and Yuya in play for a duel that focuses on all types of summoning methods

Basically, in more words, 'Hideously Unbalanced Final Boss Card Syndrome' -- of note, the vast majority of the cards either directly associated with Dartz or otherwise in any way produced by Don Thousand tend towards the 'stupidly unbalanced' side of things. Geh and Ci1000 in particular are sort of the poster children of this, in fact.

The reason I hope they don't take that route with Leo is that while that makes for 'zomaigar epic duelz' where the protagonists triumph over nearly impossible odds . . . well, that just plain doesn't appeal to me. Such duels typically cease to be about the heroes skillfully (or luckily) getting out of a scrape like most other duels (even amidst the glut of protagonists pulling out cards as the plot demands), and instead become a battle of pure plot armor, wherein he who pulls the most bullshit out of their ass wins. Good design gets thrown under a bus in favor of pure drama. Plus, as King explained, such cards as theirs inevitably are unfit for normal use, and thus typically either get radically changed just to become remotely usable (again, Geh is the prime example, though Sephylon could also be cited) or else flat-out never see the light of day (see 'anything Don Thousand used' or 'any Timelord that isn't Sephylon or Metaion').

It just doesn't sit well with me -- I feel it devalues the final battle and is a waste of the designers' time and effort.

Kinda sad to hear that they don't really appeal to you.

Still, I do enjoy those kinds of Duels (I like pretty much any form a Duel can take, except for off-screen or abridged ones; those I really can't stand).

We don't really get those kinds of Duels too often, anyway, and so I do feel that they are worth the time and effort put into them for the scant few times that we do get them.

Divine Serpent and Ci1000 aren't the only high-end, over-the-top style cards from the Anime or Manga that we see throughout its course, so I'm not really taken aback by it. The real-life translation of the cards is one thing, but that's not new also, nor exclusive to those kinds of cards (they've gotten better overall with translating them while keeping most of the thematic aesthetics it had in the Anime/Manga), and while they can be hit-or-miss, for me, that isn't enough for me to hate them or wish them to no longer exist. I guess my biggest contention would be the lack of their Deck's seeing the light of day, but they aren't exclusive to that problem, and the available space for their products has always been an issue, even in this day and age that sees more Anime/Manga stuff than ever.

Still, thank you for explaining it to me. I appreciate it, especially the cordial way you did so. :)
