View Full Version : ARC-V Episode 130 Discussion: Edo's Glory D!

6th November 2016, 07:41 PM
Last time on ARC-V, Alain and the Mighty Accelguard teamed up to fight Lucario, but Lucario's overwhelming steel power and coverage moves were to much for the Mighty Accelguard's Accelgor to handle them. However, at the moment when Alain's Mega Charizard Y and Bisharp turned the tables to his favor, Colress stepped in to save Lucario and the Mighy Accelguard before Alain can wreck shit.

After Kaito/Cameron and Edo/Falkner recovered from Zarc's Ominous Wind, they meet up with Yusyo-sensei (and Edo immediately notices the crane), telling him that there is something strange with Yuya. Of course, he blocks the "truth" and tells them they are wrong and there is nothing wrong with his son.

The ARC-V is at 50% and the Professor pulls Freezer's Flying Vehicle to escape from Reiji's rant like every bad father does, probably inspired by Shinji's father. And the girls all fall asleep. Meanwhile, Yusyo has told Edo and Kaito everything about Zarc (at least what Yusyo knows). It's actually funny that Yusyo has already met all four doppelgänger. Edo tells Yusyo that Yugo-Yuya is dueling Yugou-Yuya (wait, Edo has never met Yuri before?), but since Yusyo cannot run (thanks to Edo), Edo goes in his place to repay for his sins (actually because he is thankful of Yuya egaoing him).

After three episodes of doing nothing, but standing there for no reason and saying to each other that they want to absorb the other, Yugou-Yuya finally makes another move and orders his Starve Venom to eat Clear Wing, but Yugo-Yuya activates his Continuous Trap Card Burning Sonic (...is that a double 5D's reference to Jack and Yusei), negating the attack and powering up his Clear Wing by 500 ATK. Edo and Kaito arrive and intrude the duel, while Yugou-Yuya sets a card and end his turn. Kaito Special Summons his Cipher Twin Raptor and Cipher Biplane and uses the latter's effect to increase Twin Raptor's Level up to 8, but Synchro-Yuto activates Clear Wing's effect to negate Biplane's effect. Kaito banishes his Biplane from the Graveyard to add Cipher Wing and Normal Summons it, using its effect to increase Twin Raptor's Level and overlays it with itself to Xyz Summon Galaxy-Eyes Cipher Dragon. Despite Galaxy-Eyes Cipher is weaker than Clear Wing, Kaito declares to attack it and activates the Quickl-Play Reversal Attack to switch their ATK (and the artwork references ZEXAL). Synchro-Yuto then activates the other effect of Burning Sonic, sending it to the Graveyard to negate Reversal Attack. While Clear Wing loses its initial boost, it's still has 500 more ATK than Galaxy-Eyes Cipher, but Kaito activates his RUM Cipher Shock, negating his dragon's destruction and negating the effects of all monsters that are currently on the field when this card was activated, ending the Battle Phase and then goes to Rank Up his Galaxy-Eyes Cipher to Neo-Galaxy-Eyes Cipher Dragon. Kaito then activates his dragon's effect to gain control of Clear Wing and Starve-Venom, giving Edo an "I leave the rest to you, bro"-glare, sets a card and ends his tu- nope, Synchro-Yuto Special Summons his Speedroid Vidroskull from his hand (Level 7, 0 ATK), a monster that can reflect Battle Damage.

After the eyecatch, Sora tells a monologue about how he prefered to go alone Standard rather than joining Edo's invasion corpse; apparently, he didn't like Edo, but now he's relying on him. Edo activates Yugou to fuse Decisionguy with Dreamguy into Dystopiaguy. He activates Dystopiaguy's effect to inflict damage on Yugo, but the latter activates another Continuous Trap Card, Speedroid Shuriken Hurricane, to reflect the damage to Edo, but Edo uses Decisionguy's effect by returning him to the hand and reducing the damage to 0. Then Edo activates D - Drag Hammer to equip Dystopiaguy with Decisionguy, reducing Dystopiaguy's ATK by Decisionguy's ATK. Edo uses the second effect of Shuriken Hurricane to inflict damage to Edo by the same amount of ATK that Dystopiaguy has lost/gained. Remember that Dystopiaguy's effect works similarly? He uses his effect to destroy Funny-Yuya's Vidroskull, which leads to the destruction of Shuriken Hurricane. Edo uses the "Rin" word to shake Yugo's mind, then attacks him directly with Dystopiaguy, but Yugo negates it with Three-Eyed Dice. Edo then sets two cards and end his turn.


Funny-Yuya summons Speedroid Akumagne and uses its effect to tune it with Clear Wing on Kaito's field, Synchro Summoning Crystal Wing Synchro Dragon. Crystal Wing attacks Dystopiaguy, but Edo activated Demise Urban to increase his monster's ATK by 100 and triggering his effect. Yugo's attempt to negate the effect is made invalid as Kaito prevents either monster to be destroyed. Meanwhile, Yusyo arrives at the scene, just at the time when Edo is using his egao monologue on Funny-Yuya, trying to find a connection with him. The battle between Crystal Wing and Dystopiaguy resumes, but Edo negates the destruction and damage by using Dreamguy's effect and Special Summons him, but in turn of giving Crystal Wing a second attack. Edo activates D-Fusion to fuse his two monsters into Destiny HERO Dusk Utopiaguy. Kaito immediately notices the "Utopia" in that name (even though Utopia is known as Kibou'ou Hope in Japanese). Crystal Wing attacks Dusk Utopiaguy, but Dusk Utopiaguy is basically an Armor Master. Furthermore, his golden shine seems to get through Yugoo and puts him back to his sense, pardon, I mean Yugo. Yugo ends his turn and his attention goes back to Yugou-Yugo.

After being ignored of the majority of the episode, Evil-Yuya finally gets some screentime to shine. He draws his Trap Card Extra Shave Reborn and Normal Summons Predator Plants - Sarraceniant, then he discards Predator Plants - Drosophyllum Hydra (oh Ra, those names...) to activate "Chou. Yu. Gou.", fusing his Sarraceniant with Starve Venom on Kaito's field (Kaito, your effort of stealing their monsters turned out to be pointless in the end) to Fusion Summon Greedy Venom Fusion Dragon. Greedy Venom's effect is activated to gain Dusk Utopiaguy's effect, but Yugo uses Crystal Wing's effect to negate the effect, destroys Greedy Venom and gains its ATK. However, Greedy Venom's other effect destroys all of the opponents' Special Summoned monsters on the field and inflicts damage to the respective owners. Edo then uses Dusk Utopiaguy's effect to protect Crystal Wing, so Edo can stay in play. Kaito and Edo lose, though. Sora tries to join in, but he can't due to his injuries. None of them are carded yet. Yugo vows to win for them.


Preview:

-The girls cry while sleeping.
-Layra seems to receive Ray's feelings, asking Reiji why he doesn't want to have his big sister back.
-Layra challenges Reiji to a duel and we see... Ray's spirit?

And that is the end of Yugo since greedy venom will revive itself and since the once per turn restriction of his effect has ended, he will surely turn crystal wing into a literal punching bag and end the duel unless yugo has something to stop that fate. Also i do hope that the new d-hero fusion can be summoned with a fusion substitute since i don't have to summon s**t lord of dystopia first Its fine to summon dystopia off from the fusion but i'd rather not have to summon him first.

Maybe he can use it only on one person once. I mean Yuya's pins has to be active all the time. So it probably cannot do the same to another person unless you cancel it on the first one.

Yep, that card was a prototype and therefore unique. If you want to have two at once active, you would need two cards as well.

132: Kidai no Entertainer - The Peerless Entertainer, November 20, 2016
Possessing overwhelming strength and sporting a wicked smile on his face, Yuri sets his eyes on his next target: Yuya...!! In order to stop him, Yusyo confronts Yuri. A fierce battle between Yusyo and Yuri unfolds.

133: Kagayakashiki Entame Show - A Dazzling Entertainment Show, November 27, 2016
Yusyo drives Yuri into a corner with his Entertainment Dueling, while Yuya desperately tries to suppress Zarc, who is consuming him. As he proudly watches Yusyo's Duel, Yuya is able to regain his true self. However, even though he is driven into a corner by Yusyo, Yuri continues to sport a wicked smile...

I heard the reason for its illegality was that the solid vision did not go away. Meaning that there would be nothing stopping him from using it again. And if, in theory, he could use it only once, that fails to answer my first question-- why would he waste it on his son, instead of using it on a much greater threat.

You mean Yuri right? I'm pretty sure that he didn't realize that Yuri and Yugo were dueling until he met up with Kite and Aster.

On the contrary, Yuya was doing a pretty damn good fighting it off, especially when Yuzu was talking. He was being consumed by anger because Leo was murdering his waifu, Yuto's waifu, his friend, and the fourth lookalike right in front of him. Hell, if he had used it on Leo right away, Zarc wouldn't have taken hold at all. What the hell is his thought process anyways? "I'm going to find Yuri and Yugo, so let me just pin my son to a column, leave the enemy aside for now, and let Reiji handle things even though he just about got his ass handed to him in the duel." Which naturally leads to Leo promptly fucking off instead of say, taking advantage of the fact that Yuya is pinned to a column to do something to prevent Zarc's revival.

My point is, it's fucking stupid. And that's not even getting into the fact that literally the only point of Kaito and Edo's intrusion into the duel was to waste Yugo's card advantage, instead of, oh, I don't know, directing their efforts at negating the actual threat.

I might also mention how they present Edo as being all buddy-buddy with Yugo, acting like they have some kind of deep friendship when they literally only talked for 30 seconds one time.

Sanokal
8th November 2016, 06:50 AM
Yusho was busy processing what the hell was going on. Remember, he thought that he could talk Leo out of this, so it's not a stretch to imagine that he thought that Leo would behave rationally (not that this make it any less naive).

Yugo kinda WAS threatening them, so it's self preservation and technically eliminating the problem at the same time; they're trying to take at least one of them down, it didn't necessarily matter which one. They're also both trying to carry on Yuya's way of thinking; talking to Yugo through a Duel, something that Aster happened to be better with; Kite was just setting up optimal conditions (he DID nick Starving Venom after all).

As for being buddy buddy, a big part of Aster's logic is that Yuya and Yugo are similar people, which is likely why Aster acts so familiar with him, and they did have time to talk off screen with everything that's gone on.

Now, as for my thoughts of the episode...mostly excellent, with only the animation (presumably a side effect of Greedy Venom's debut) dragging it down. Kite only got one turn, but damn if he didn't make it count; he countered almost EVERYTHING Yugo did . Aster, damn he was glorious. It's like his duel with Adrian all over again, and Dusktopia was an unforseen but utterly fantastic monster. The counters were beautiful to watch, no matter how much of it, and it was a welcome surprise to see Yuri pull out Greedy Venom using Super Polymerization (I expected him to use his Predaplant, I forget which one).

But...these are two characters from GX and ZEXAL going up against Yugo and Yuri. Don't get me wrong, this episode was real goddamn good, but I feel that it should have been far more EPIC. These kinds of moments in the series are what I LIVE for.

Ah well. JACK ATLAS still has time to shine.

Yusyo's cards aims for the person who attacks, not on the person who is attacked, so it doesn't work that way.

Also, only a selective few of Academia characters (the Professor, Barrett, Dennis and Roget) are shown to be aware of how dangerous Yuri is. The only good people who are aware of him being a danger are Yuzu, Rin and Ruri, but we don't know how much they know about that. Not even Sora, Asuka and Edo know him well, and giving that Yuri is isolated from most of Academia, not many people would know about that special soldier. Sora is well-known, Asuka was popular, but Yuri is the opposite of her and almost like a phantom. It's not far fetched to believe that not even Obelisk Force who work for him know him that well and only listen to his commands because he is their superior. Roget, Barrett and der Doktor are the only people shown to a hunch of Revival Zero, at least how they appear to me.

Yusyo, the Lancers and Kaito have almost no idea who Yuri is, and this is the first episode where Yusyo meets Yuri. Edo could have focuses on Yuri instead of Yugo, but that would have not bring Yugo back to his senses and Yuri would have summoned Greedy Venom during Edo's turn anyway, since he could Special Summon Drosophyllum Hydra from his hand. Kaito's plan was to make clear path for Edo (how Edo would have done that is beyond me, though), and if he had attacked Yuri instead, Ra knows what kind of Fusion Monsters lie in his Extra Deck. With SuperPoly on the field, Yuri had infinite possibilities to create. Even it is not from GX, the ARC-V version is shown to absorb the energy of carded humans, so it is similar to the ARC-V machine. The thing however is that Kaito and Edo aren't aware of Yuri's evil character and skills, and after learning of Zarc, bringing Yugo back had more priority.

Because it's not like Leo attacked an entire dimension of innocent people, right?

Asuka clearly knew his threat based on her response, and he could have taken the hint.

Kaito and Edo both knew Yugo was not a bad guy. They do know that Yuri is an agent of Academia. That's reason enough to target him. Yes, getting Yugo back to his senses is a goal, but it should be secondary to eliminating Yuri regardless of how little they know about him, simply because of his affiliation. And it seemed that mentioning Rin more than anything else is what de-triggered Yugo.

What's the point of sealing the Professor when someone more dangerous like Zarc is running around? The ARC-V would do its work regardless, so sealing him won't do a thing, while Zarc would run havoc. In the end, Zarc did overwhelm Yuya/Yuto because of their anger. Yusyo seems to be confident that Reiji is going to be fine with that situation.

Asuka obviously didn't know how dangerous he was, considering she tried to egao him and horribly failed by miscalculating his personality. If she knew how evil and sociopathic he is, she wouldn't have tried that in the first place. Asuka was more like "I will block this path. Sensei, you should go and talk to the Professor", not like "I won't let this maniac take all of us down" and she was clearly not trying to sacrifice herself. The priority at that situation was that Yusyo has to settle things with his former friend, not dealing with a guy he just saw for 30 seconds.

Kaito couldn't do anything to Yuri because Yugo kept interferring. Edo tried to clear Yugo's field to take both down at once, but that was also countered by Yugo. And even if he did aim on Yuri first, Yuri had Super Polymerization on the field and Drosophyllum Hydra in his hand, so he was prepared to block the attack with Greedy Venom. Edo and Kaito had only both one turn, and there is so much someone can do in one turn. The only one who could do something against Yuri was Edo, but if he could bring Yugo back to his senses first, it would be three-on-one. And honestly, I can't even tell how Edo is supposed to beat both of them in one turn. With his burn + direct damage strategy, he could have taken down one of them, but I can't see how he can defeat both of them at once. And it would have only worked on Yuri, since Yugo's Vidroskull's presence forced Edo to use D - Drag Hammer to change Dystopiaguy's ATK.

As long as Yugo was disrupting Kaito's plays, neither of the two could have defeated Yuri. And as I said, Yuri could defend himself with Greedy Venom or a possibly other unknown Fusion Monster. And Starve Venom's last effect would also have done the same thing, and Clear Wing can't negate effects from the Graveyard, only Crystal Wing can.

Even if Edo and Kaito directing their attacks towards Yugo instead of Yuri was dumb, considering Yugo wasted his resources, that ended in MASSIVE advantage for the good guys:
-Kaito had Neo Cipher, Yuri's Starve Venom and Split Guard to protect 1 of their monsters from destruction as long at his field was kept the same.
-Edo had Duskutopiaguy which could protect 1 of their monsters once a turn.
-Yugo had Crystal Wing (which he could only Summon thanks to Kaito since Fiend Magnet only worked on opponent's monsters) and 1 set card.
-Yuri just had Sarraceniant (whose effect would have been useless thanks to Crystal Wing and Split Guard), Hydra (useless since there are no monsters with Predator Counters) in hand and Super Poly set.

If you ignore Yuri had 2 overpowerd cards under his sleeve, they basically had a perfect Field.

Which goes to my previous point: If these swords can stab stuff, why not use them to wreck Arc-V?

I really loved this episode for how Kite and Aster took their turns and made their plays alone. They really made it something special for me.

The epicness may not have lasted as long as one would have preferred, but them's the breaks for 1-episode Duels that have a lot to cover. What we got was still epic for being confined in a single episode, though, and well worth it. I'm thankful to have had this opportunity.

I'm hoping that since Aster and Kite weren't carded, that the two of them plus Jack will survive long enough to lose against Zarc in a standard "final boss preview" style Duel, like Aporia against Zone and Mizar against Don Thousand. Such a thing would most definitely be epic! :D

Jack's very likely to be a shoe-in for such a Duel, but I'm hoping he won't hog the spotlight such a Duel would carry all by himself.

Because incapacitating the leader of an organization weakens said organization and makes it easier to disrupt their operations?

Not to mention removing Yuzu from danger allows Yuya to suppress Zarc.

And Yusho should have known that Reiji is powerless to stop Leo considering the duel that just happened.

Tackling him into a wall and locking him behind a gate is a fairly extreme action for one of the good guys. If she thought he was "just another student," she wouldn't have done that. She didn't know him entirely, sure, but she knew enough to realize that he was a far greater threat than your average mook. She also knew that he WAN TAAN, FABIU KIRU the Yusho students.

They barely bothered at all to talk him down (again, mentioning Rin is what de-triggered Yugo), and there are a few things that could have gone differently. Kaito could have Cipher Projection'd Starve Venom, and sure Yugo could have responded with Dichroic Mirror, but that would be fucking stupid. Attack Yuri directly, and then attempt to use Reversal Attack with Starve Venom to kill Clear Wing, which would kill Starve Venom and blow up Galaxy-Eyes and Clear Wing, which would end up with Kaito dead, Yuri at 1000, and Yugo at 1500. Edo could then burn Yuri for game, and if he couldn't talk down Yugo, he would have a major advantage over him with Clear Wing dead, not to mention the real danger is already gone.

Alternatively, had Edo gone first, he could have killed Starve Venom, negated the damage with Decision Guy, and Kaito would have been able to take out Yuri. Yugo would be able to summon Vidroskull and attack Galaxy-Eyes, but RUM Cipher Shock negates monster effects, so Yugo would end up killing himself.

A bunch of swords wouldn't be enough to destroy a gigantic machine.
And even though the effect doesn't specify that, it is obvious that the swords are aiming for the attacker, so there was no choice for options. Using it on Yuri wouldn't make sense since it requires Yusyo to be present, and that would make Asuka's attempt to buy them time pointless if Yusyo stayed there. Yusyo could have used it on the Professor if he was going to win, but Zarc turned the tables in the end.

The Professor could still command his force even when he is sealed, and since he is the creator of the card, he probably knows a way to cancel it. Preventing Zarc from becoming one with Yugo and Yuri and destroy everything had higher priority in Yusyo's opinion, especially since he didn't want to lose his son to the devil at that point.

Yusyo left the rest to Reiji because he knows that Reiji has potential to grow in this situation. Story-wise, Reiji didn't evolve much in dueling. This is perfect opportunity for him to grow as a duelist. Reiji is the kind of guy who would learn from his mistakes.

They could gag him. Is it explicitly stated that Leo made that card? And even if he did, he couldn't disable if immobilized.

Actually, Yuya (when calm) or Reiji could have just asked their monster to break open the containers with the Ruris, because monsters are pretty good about safe handling of people.

Generally not a good idea to have someone who just had their ass handed to them go back in the exact same scenario. There's a difference between "learning from mistakes" and "mistakes you can't learn from because you're doomed now." A moot point, anyways, since Leo just flew away on his chair because he was basically left scot-free.

This was a good episode! High profile characters and an endless amount of boss monsters. We saw Galaxy Eyes Cipher, Neo Galaxy Eyes Cipher, Dystopiaguy, Duskutopiaguy, Clear Wing, Crystal Wing, Starving Venom and Greedy Venom all in one episode and in one duel. Like Sanokal said, they countered each other beautifully.

At first I didn't understand why Kaito and Edo were going all out against Yugo because Yuri is the far bigger threat. But I realized that Edo still thought he could reach Yugo and snap him out of Zarc's control so that's why he focused on him. And Edo even said something to the effect I will make you egao too Yuri so it seems like Yuri was also in Edo's mind but Yugo was priority. And while it was obvious who Edo was going to save, I'm still a bit disappointed he chose Yugo. Because I'm sure Yugo will succumb to Zarc's control again while dueling Yuri and getting angry again. So Edo and Kaito's efforts will still most likely go to waste.

I like how Synchros kind of got their own Super Poly in Speedroid Fiendmagnet because this little guy can Synchro Summon using opponents monsters.

So looks Ray will take over Reira. Reira vs Reiji should be very interesting if they let Reira and Reiji go all out.

Well, for us audience, Yuri was hyped a lot, but for characters like Edo and Kaito, they have no idea how dangerous he really is. Edo was more familiar with Yugo than with Yuri, and since Edo himself took time to be egao'd and Yugo was already on the good side, he could connect better with Yugo than with the fellow Academia student he may never met before.

Right, your logic is correct. No one is aware of how evil Yuri over there except Sora. Edo knows Yugo from walking around with him so he can get through to Yugo.

Also I found it kind of funny how Yuri doesn't even know Kaito is. I thought everyone in Academia knew about the huge bounty put on Kaito's head

Think about it though...would Yuri really have cared that Kite sealed so many Academy students? Then again, you could argue that he'd think "Ooh, I wanna fight that guy".

I find it interesting how Yugo started playing evil/dark-themed cards the moment he goes Awakened. Suddenly, Vidroskull and Fiendmagnet.

And when he snapped out of it, the first and only monster he played afterwards? Speedroid 5-6 Plane, which looks like a colorful and comical/cartoon-ish plane, symbolizing him being back to normal.
