If Konami just threw a dart on a board with different types and happened to pick Fairy 3 times, it'd be one thing, but it's the conscious choice that pisses me off.
    Yes. And why do we have to have multiple female leads with this feminine fairy deck trend. Why can't we have a female lead with a female deck inspired by... I dunno, how about Samus from the Metroid series.

It's Cyberse, not Cyverse, and there's nothing that can change that, because of a decision made in 2005.

    On the subject of this card, I like it, although it's arrows are a little wonky looking. Asymmetrical arrows don't look right to me, even though they open up a ton of different arrow formations.

    Your right. The archetype "Cyber" is [サイバー] and the new type "Cyberse" is [サイバース]. So it might really NEED to be Cyberse in case it is referenced in a Spell/Trap card title in which case is would count toward the Cyber archetype automatically from the OCG point. And, actually, it already has. Cyberse Beacon is searchable by Cyber Dragon Core.

    As much as @Voltanis doesn't like it. The term HAS to be Cyberse and not Cyverse. Hands tied on this one.

    Well, damn, add that to the list of things to be changed when we invent time travel. And then immediately cross it off! Ahahahaha time travel humor.

    Also, yeah, perhaps the worst aesthetic addition in the Link era is going to be horribly unsymmetrical Link markers. Really feels wrong with the preciseness of future tech. The most fitting way to incorporate it, as far as I can think, would be like some clock-based archtype (Not those weird Clock Knights, though.) where the hands correlate to the markers, i.e. 12:30 would be one up and one down, 9:30 would be one to the top left, one down, etc. Dunno' how they would get more than 2 Link markers, maybe if they included the second hand...

    Especially when it's on a counterpart card. To this day I still dislike how Encode Talker's arrow neither match Decode Talker's nor be a reverse of Decode Talker's. Not even at least having a symmetrical arrows like how Decode Talker has symmetrical arrows.

    I'm still hoping they are planning another "code Talker" Link monster that has BL B Top arrows to balance it out.

    I just read most of this thread and it's funny how no one mentioned Ghost Girl and her Altergeist archetype. I know she's not the main female lead and I have serious doubts on if she'll even stay past season 1 but she's using Spellcasters so that has to count for something different right?

    To be fair, the Japanese have accepted "Cyberse" as the English spelling since it's appeared in English a few times in the anime.

    It could have been "Cyberverse"; they just wanted it to be short because it's a Type.

    Beast-Warriors and Sea-Serpents say hi (as do Divine-Beasts) :P

    But yeah, they probably wanted a short name.
