Before the duel actually starts, the Professor is using the ARC-V to make the girls "become one". Do I need to mention that the artstyle of this episode is awful? Yuya and Yuto are angry about that plan, but they do realize that if they become more angry, Z-ARC will show up (but they are obviously going to fail). The "Yuya! Yuto!" reaction of Yuzu is Ruri is cute because it's a double one. Yuya opens the duel with the Gazer duo to Pendulum Summon Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon (and the stock footage is one of the originals ones which we haven't seen for a long time). The Professor recognize it as Odd-Eyes Dragon, one of the dragons that destroyed the original dimension and since he didn't mention their names, they were silhouetted to us viewers because Yuya and co. don't know about which dragons he is talking about. Yusyo is having flashbacks about Yuzu and Yuya's childhood and he's trying to remember their "birth". If I understand correctly, Syuzou got Yuzu without a mother while Yusyo cannot remember Yuya's birth, deducting that they were no memories of his birth to begin with.

Yuya being Yuya, he ends his turn without setting a card. Reiji starts his turn by using Savant Copernicus and Cerberus as his 1-6 Scales to Pendulum Summon Berfomet and the Tuner Monster Ghost and then he Normal Summons Necro Slime. Yuya, Serena and Yuzu know what is coming. Reiji uses his three monsters to Synchro Summon Alexander. Then he uses Ghost's effect to send a second copy of Berfomet to the Graveyard, then he banishes Necro Slime with Ghost to Fusion Summon Temujin. With Alexander and Temujin, he revives both Berfomets to Xyz Summon Cesar (always the last one). Rin and Ruri are amazed about Reiji's skills. But seriously, those three are pretty much Reiji's recurring Extra Deck monsters, but I will expect new Extra Deck monsters in this duel. Anyway, he uses a new Dark Contract card (at least those are new in almost every duel) to seal the Professor's Fusion, Synchro, Xyz Monsters, but in turn he cannot summon monsters from the Extra Deck. Is that an analogy to LDS monopolyzing the Extra Deck summoning methods?

Before the Professor begins his Main Phase, he and his son have a little quarrel, along with Yuya. Reiji calming Yuya his nakama, he won't let Yuya becoming Z-ARC with the others. And even though Yuto is inside of him, Yuya and Yuto have the same egao mindset and their goal is to free Yuzu and the others. Aside from Yuzu's "Yuya" reaction, Ruri is glad that Yuto still remembers their promise. Yeah, more shipping.


Surprising everyone, the Professor sets two copies Scale 1 Spirit Reactors on his Pendulum Zones. His deck is a Spirit deck. Not Spirit Monsters, the archetype is called Spirit. That is going to confuse people. Of course, there is a reason why he sets Pendulum Monsters with the same Scales on both zones. He uses the effect of the Reactor on the blue Zone to copy the Scale of any Pendulum Monster on the field, copying Timegazer's Scale of 8. He Pendulum Summons Spirit Tech Force - Pendulum Governor and Spirit Crystal - Salamander Core. Man, Daisuke Namikawa is going to be more hammy than in his role as Kajiki from Duel Monsters (the freaky fishguy). He activates Pendulum Covernor's effect to tribute Salamander Core and copy its effects and using it twice per turn. He uses Salamander Core's effect to destroy Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon and inflict 800 damage to Yuya. Then the Professor uses that effect on Temujin, allowing the Professor to Fusion Summon again. As long as Pendulum Covernor is on the field, monsters whose Level are between the Professor's two Scales cannot attack, sealing Alexander from attacking. And Pendulum Covernor's Monster Effect prevents any non-Pendulum Monster from attacking it anyway, so even Cesar cannot harm Pendulum Governor (who has 2800 ATK to begin with and is stronger than Alexander and Cesar from the start). Since it seems that nobody can attack during their first turn, the Professor sets a card and end his turn.

Meanwhile, Edo and Kaito recover from Yuya's outrage/gekirin. Since Kaito is aware of Yuto being inside of Yuya, he knows that Yuya has some mysterious power. The ARC-V is starting to work, causing the four girls to panic and pissing Yuya off. After some "Yuya-Yuzu-Yuto-Ruri"-exchange, Z-ARC is trying to awaken from Yuya's body and we get a lot of reaction shots (how many reaction shots can this episode possibly have?) Reiji is trying to calm Yuya down, while Yuya and Yuto are trying to suppress Z-ARC. Yuya barely manages it and Pendulum Summons Odd-Eyes Pendulum. Then he Normal Summon Entermate Yugolem, but Z-ARC awakens again. He uses Yugolem's Monster Effect to (guess what) fuse it with Odd-Eyes Pendulum to Fusion Summon Entermate Gatlinghoul. (So, are both materials in the Graveyard now?) Gatlinghoul seems to be the first "evil" Entermate... and appropriately, he looks like Mr. Hyde. If Fusion Summoned successfully (does Dark Contract with the Monopoly Seal even work on Yuya?), Gatlinghoul inflicts 200 damage for each card on the field, inflicting 2400 damage to the Professor. With the Pendulum Summoned Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon being used as a Fusion Material for Gatlinghoul, Yuya is targetting Pendulum Governor to destroy it and inflict 2800 damage to the Professor and win the duel. Well, since the Professor has a set card, it's probably not going to work. Meanwhile Yusyo is struggling to believe he raised his son to revive Z-ARC.
As shitty as this episode was drawn, there were three good shots at the end of the episode. Really? Only three? The artstyle was so shitty that some of Reiji's monster look fat (especially Temujin).

The Professor's deck look really troublesome. Reiji's swarming skills never fail to impress, but his trio always serves as jobbers for the most part. But at least his skills are as enjoyable as Atem's. Yuya does his usual "I summon one powerful" monster routine like he is Kaiba or something. Whether the Professor is going to be as troublesome as Dartz/Yubel/Fujiwara/Goodwin/Faker/DonK is still up in the air. Most duels in ARC-V end in OTKs, and Yuya being Yuya, he does attempt it this episode again. I hope this duel is going to be long, and since Yuri vs Yugo is still parallel to this one, we might get some interruption the next few weeks.


Preview:

-Good art.
-Reiji tries to calm Yuya down.
-Yuya is struggling to fight Z-ARC's awakening. And he has Odd-Eyes Pendulum on his Monster Zone, but no Gatlinghoul.
-Bracelet Girl reaction shot... again.
-Yuya/Z-ARC using Allen's rollerblades to grab an Action Card.
-Hell Armageddon returns... but apparently on the Professor's field.
-It looks like the girls, or at least Ruri, are going to disappear.
-Yuzu's talk seems to bring Yuya back to his senses.

Damn was this episode mean to us. So much talk to strech the duel and hype the professors deck. At least the D/D companion got 2 new support card. 2 good ones to begin with. A tuner that is a foolish burial? A searchable continoues multi-purpose Dimension Barrier? I guess this will be pretty good if it ever comes out in the TCG.
On another note, they did a really good job at surprising us with the Pendulum cards of the Professor. The only thing that matters is:
Will we get the complete deck of a villan for once?

Entermate Yugolem is fucking terrifying, it entertains as much as an killer-clown tbh.

And the fusion? We all have predicted that we will get Entermate XYZ becasue odd-eyes have mostly Fusions and the Magicians have Synchro. But apperently Yuya likes Yugo way too much. The shots between a fricking gattling gun tearing Leo apart and smiling egao Yuya were brilliant and converted the evil perfectly.

Finally Yuya embraces the true entertainment. Fear and despair. Violence and anger. Entertainment is meant to be enjoyed by the person making it. Not other people.

Nice duel so far, I really want to see more of the Spirit non-Spirit monsters (this'll get pretty confusing for sure). The animations were pretty shitty though. They actually didn't even show how Spirit Tech Force - Pendulum Governor destroyed Temujin and Odd-Eyes (which was the reason Yuya could Fusion Summon in the first place), and if I'm not mistaken, Odd-Eyes was shown on the field while he was actually destroyed.

I'm curious about D/D Ghost, wheter he can send any D/D or Dark Contract card to the grave, or just a copy of 1 already being in the graveyard, when it get's printed. The second option would make him obsolete, if the banlist hits D/D harder. But a level 2 Synchro gives options for a level 9 or 10 Synchro, which we'll hopefully see during the next 2 episodes.

Salamander core's effect was used. http://yugioh.wikia.com/wiki/Spirit_Crystal_-_Salamander_Core. Governer used "Once per turn: You can target 1 "Spirit Crystal" monster that was Pendulum Summoned from the hand and whose monster effect was not used; Tribute that monster, and if you do, you can use the targeted monster's effects up to 2 times." so he used the effect of salamander core twice to pop both.

I know, but they didn't show it. As someone who didn't understand japanese, I was pretty confused when Yuya suddenly Pendulum Summoned Odd-Eyes for the second time, since I thought he was still on the field.

Yugolem has a good Pendulum Effect. I hope it keeps it in the OCG/TCG.

23rd October 2016, 03:50 PM
I really liked Leo's Deck (Pendulum Governor's design is just rad). Yuya's and Reiji's new cards were also good (Yugolem is another piece for Zarc and pals.dek thanks to being Level 4, DARK and having a Fusion Summon effect while Reiji got a "you cannot play Yugioh" card). Yusho's freaking out over not remembering Yuya's birth is messed up though.

Not really impressed with Reiji since its the same combo(more or less) every duel. But since his turns are longer than anyone else's in the show, im expecting quite a few new cards...a lot of new cards.

Well, at least he swarmed the field with three Extra Deck monsters to maintain field control and monopolize the field more effectively. Using d'Arc wouldn't bring any monsters back, and to summon Siegfried, Reiji would needed Pandora or Chevalier, but neither Siegfried nor Tell can Special Summon monsters. So this time, he has to use the same combo again, but with Monopoly Seal, Reiji almost shutdown the Professor's field. Sadly, the entire combo wasted his entire hand, making it unable to summon another Pendulum Monster. D/D need a card that can Special Summon banished D/D monsters. (Which would be appropriate, given the name and their relation with D.D.)

The first Odd-Eyes summon footage is actually from the first opening. Edit: Okay, not quite exactly.

More Yami Yuya action, Rin and Ruri seems to have developed a crush for Reiji after he summoned Temujin, Alexander and Caesar and it seems that Yusho founded baby Yuya in the bushes and doesn't remember, what a great father!

Really liked the revealed cards. Fugolem is a Trump Girl with better level, scale and pend effect so I hope it doesn't get nerfed. I'm 100% sure that Gatling Ghoul is going to get nerfed, a Blaze Fenix + RoD effect for easy summon requirements (which I guess are 1 Performapal + 1 DARK) is just too much. The D/D cards are ok, a new tuner with a meh effect and a Domain Contract, nothing too flashy. Leo's cards are interesting, Pendulum Governor really is a cool boss monster.

Seeing as how Armageddon is in the preview, im guessing its the next card he'll draw. Then tribute Alex and Cesar. Too op . Add gate with cesar ef. Shenanigans

He doesnt need to be nerfed, as the maximal damage he can do is 4000 (if 20 cards are on the field). But lets be real so 1500 - 2000 are standart. Also he only triggers of Yugo Shokan so he is fine. Just make both effects a OPT and its good.

2k on summon + 2-3k with his second effect, thats more than just average, given how easy he can be summoned.

Maybe say you cant have a battle phase when you use the 2 effect? Also the 2 effect targets and people say target effects are bad (i dont think so but whatever). I guess this card will punish for making huge boards.

In fact, Professor was right about Reiji being careless about his opponent's strategy since he was the one who suprised Yuya in thirteenth episode by Pendulum Summoning.
He shouldn't have underestimated this possibility.

I think those really are the materials.

Reiji super confident but has no pendulums in his extra deck and no cards in his hand to protect him or make him think of another strategy. such noob plays

You know that he cannot summon from his Extra Deck anymore because of Monopoly Seal, right? Also, how is he going to protect himself with the cards he drew? If you don't draw backrow, you don't have it and you have to work with the cards you have on your hand. It's still about luck (even though, luck doesn't really exist in anime).

Interesting episode. As it's already been mentioned numerous times, the art was not good at all. Hopefully it's better next time.

-First time I've seen Reiji shocked or a bit uncertain in this show. He was thrown off by his father's moves and Yuya going all Awakened/Berserk is confusing him as well. And on top of that, his father that was never there for him now giving him lectures on how to prepare in life. Oh my that's ironic

-I'm intrigued by Leo's deck. Spirit Reactor's effects (if you read them on the Wikia) are pretty good but most of it will probably be changed unfortunately. Idk though, Leo and his deck just don't feel like big bad boss material to me. I shouldn't rush to judge though

-Yusho also struggling inside caught my attention. So Zarc and his magic toyed with Yusho's mind to the point where Yusho thought him and his wife brought Yuya into this world by birth? Wow that's quite deep. It feels like if Yusho duels, it's going to be against Yuya because he seems to be considering Leo's precautions and the fact that Yuya is going Berserk in front of him.

-The Gatlinghoul shooting was pretty intense. Definitely showed that Yuya is growing closer to the dark side
