Yuya won't get brainwashed
Sora will save everyone
Everything will be daijobou
but I don't need to tribute summon to get my level 5s out.
We get free level 7 monsters when we tribute, we also automatically search or even summon when we tribute.
It's good for your health son.
Please god let it happen
We will never have a second team
Hope your right anon
I'm that one guy that likes to have pure archetype decks. Pure U.A. was hellish even with unlimited ROTA, but I'm too stubborn to put Heroic Challengers in.
>Goalkeeper is underrated
>Playmaker is pretty crap but can keep switching between hand and field every turn to infinitely boost attack
>Rival Rebounder/Turnover Tactics are legitimate shit, only pulled their combo once
>Deck was awful against Superheavy until Dreadnought Dunker appeared.
I can't argue that, unfortunately.
Did Yoshimasa Hosoya's IV get him recognition? He's got barely any major roles, mostly bit parts until 2011, then he became the shit with multiple major roles a year.
Did Zexal make him famous, or did he get grabbed for Zexal due to his fame?
the power will always be with us, anon.
jason david frank is a fucking scumbag.
>Reiji is 4
>Also Robin from Fire Emblem Awakening

Holy fuck, he's so perfect. Why did they choose such an expensive seiyuu though?
Reminder Yuya and Reiji's VA's voices in a reverse harem. Their living the life.
>3 lvl 12 to summon
Good luck son, I'm behind three of those.
Remember the days when Yuto was the most edgy character with the worst life?
And Yuya was just an idiot without any true suffering?
The chip failed to even contain Sergey and Yuya's chip will be rush job since Jean is cutting corners.
I doubt the chip will work properly. At worst, it will just trigger EGAO mode again.
magenta is red+blue
yellow is green+blue
It's just the way the layers are overlaid that creates these colors. The sword itself gas only 3 blades.
Like Psyframes, they are an one-shot archetype.
Post yfw at the end of the next episode, it shows Jean's face talking to the scientist who says Yuya is ready for the chip, and then the screen fades to black, and Jean's voice says
now the fun has truly begun
The one and only.
During the Crow duel, his right goggle is going to be shattered by debris, like Yuto's when he first appeared.
You don't actually use level 12's, you just use the field spell. Also don't get too cocky, we all know Monarchs are going to last at most one banlist before Idea gets banned or they get full inzektor treatment and Idea/Eidos limit to 1 killing the deck instantly.
Cross your fingers and pray they do the stupidly logical process of remaking Neos/Neo spacians into pendulums then. Its never going to happen even though it would work perfectly.
Neos needs a whole different set of neo spacians and contact fusions. Not only that, they need to be capable of being fusion summoned the traditional way, no longer be forced to return to the extra deck to initiate a contact fusion or if Neo space isn't out, have decent stats and effects on the neo spacians AND their fusions, Yubel and Neos wisemen need to be retrained into HERO monsters as well with Neos wiseman going back to being a fusion.
I estimate that about 15 or 20 cards like this are needed and Konami does not ever do that for an old archetype, especially an unpopular one. The only way you'd get that is if you were part of the Make-a-wish foundation and even then, Konami would just make another Tyler the great warrior and fuck you.
Ritual Dimension SOON, btw.
Wrong, just redo the neo spacians as better pendulum monsters and then offer some new support. Contact fusion will work perfectly in combination with pendulum summoning and getting out a field spell is not particularly difficult.
It is never gonna happen but I can dream.
the biggest problem is their "Return to the deck" clause in all of their fusions and Most of Neo's support forces him to return to the deck after a turn as well. It's a major weakness on an already weak archetype, what the fuck were they thinking?
If they had to insist on returning to the deck, at least make it like Gladiator Beasts. Meaning that when a Neos Fusion returns to the extra deck, it should be able to summon Elemental HERO Neos and any 1 Neospacian monster (except the returned one) so that the Neospacian player gets SOMETHING in return, even if those two monsters would probably get destroyed by your opponent on their next turn.
I still think the Neospacians would have been better if they didn't return to the extra deck at the end of the turn. Even just making a card where when a Neos monster gets returned to the deck/extra deck by its own effect, it destroys cards your opponent controls, or special summons Neos/Neospacian monsters, or inflicts significant damage to your opponent (the Fusion's Original ATK?).
Yuya is so perfect
I can't wait for him to get brainwashed
>tfw /a/rc-v is dead since all the speculation is finished and all the best characters are either in trash town, in cells or not doing anything
>tfw /dng/ is dead because PePe sucked all the fun out of the game and nobody is inspired to try anymore
Where do I go to discuss Yu-gi-oh! while the depression is happening?
>yfw Yuya's Pendulum makes him immune to the brainwashing because magic/plot.
>yfw instead of brainwashed Yuya vs Crow, it would be Crow getting BTFO by Berserk Yuya.
>yfw Yuya tunes a Level 2 Synchro Tuner (because 5Ds/Formula Synchron reference) + Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon to summon a Level 9 Pendulum Synchro monster, then Crow gets BTFO harder than anyone else has been BTFO in ARC-V.
You can join me in being disappointment that Millennium Pack will clearly not have any Silent cards in it. Just another shitty Gaia card, several Marik cards and maybe 2 or 3 more original cards that reference the final arc and support the god cards. Through there is a slot open between the new gaia and Five god dragon.
>tfw /dng/ is dead because PePe sucked all the fun out of the game and nobody is inspired to try anymore
That isn't the reason you shouldn't go to /dng/ for serious conversation about the game. The reason is because they are retarded, you only go there to watch them violently hate everything for little to no reason. I swear /dng/ has taken shitposting to an artform.
>Yuri masquerades as Yuya and joins the Lancers
>Yuya crashes and becomes a crippled amnesiac duelist on a momentum powered wheelchair
>Yugo becomes possessed by Yuto becomes a crazy dude with multiple personalities and mumbles to himself
>Sora gets captured by Security and is rescued by Yuzu who loses an arm in the process
>Tsukikage assassinates Crow in his hotel room and it becomes a closed room mystery
>Jean kidnaps Shun and puts him in a stasis tank to rebuild him into a rage powered mecha bird weapon to use against Academia
Yeah, Millennium pack was listed as having cards that work with Millennium Box 10 new cards total.
5 of them are God card support, the 3 egypt cards yami marik used, Ra's final form and an original card that supports the gods. 1 is a new gaia fusion and the last is Kaiba's own card of sanity nerfed into the ground. So that leaves 3 new cards left.
The funny thing is that it wouldn't even be out of place in YGO.
Yuri's EGAO is the greatest EGAO.
Everyone. Yuya's Egao is innocent. Shun's Egao is cute. Yuri's Egao is menacing. Reiji's Egao is Keikaku. Yuto's Egao is forced which is a good thing for him. Yuzu's Egao is full of Joy. Serena's Egao is smugness.
Reminder that Sora's Egao is the most cute/innocent Egao. How can someone with such a cute Egao be from Academia?
The last episode was pure crap, to be honest. The next one looks fun, at least.
At least Yugo vs Serena would be better than Yuya vs Shinji, Yuya vs 227 or Gongenzaka vs Crow.
There is no way this duel could be worse than Yugo's duel with Sawatari, since the only way Yugo could do worse is he did Recontract Universe which is impossible for him.
>The next episode looks fucking retarded
Yeah. And actually funny.
>the last one at least dealt with relevant characters and their development.
True, again. And was really boring.
>To be fair Yuya vs Shinji was good only because of EnPal
The fact Yuya didn't even need EnPal to beat Shinji, and could have just used Dark Rebellion, proved how shit that duel was. They should have put Yuya in a position where EnPal was the only option but by leaving Dark Rebellion as another option, it takes the only good thing about the episode and makes it worthless.
EnPal could have easily been debuted against Duel Chaser 227, so dueling Shinji didn't really matter.
Will the threads be revived if Yuya reunited with Yuzu and nothing separated them afterwards for the rest of ARC-V?
Why is he so hard to summon?
>Implying anything can fix a duel involving Shinji
Shinji uses a deck based around bees. He has a BEE THEMED DECK. Nothing can turn a duel involving Shinji into something interesting unless it ends in him getting carded.
I liked the Sora and Yuzu stuff. It was
At least we got Jack Egao from it, and Jeans infamous OOOOOOHH. Also DRXD shows anger, so defeating Shinji with it wouldn't be no different to how he defeated 227 with pure anger.
>Will the threads be revived if Yuya reunited with Yuzu and nothing separated them afterwards for the rest of ARC-V?
Let's just say that the pixiv fanarts will probably implode like Ruri's first on-screen appearance.
I-is Mieru.dek finally good now?
I still have no idea where the whole NTR meme came from when Sora is the biggest Yuuya/Yuzufag around.
Why do people assume that Yugi and Kaiba will show off synchro and xyz when Takahashi did not do anything for 5ds and Zexal besides draw some characters and give the OK.
It's also a movie for old Yugioh fan i.e. The ones who stopped at DM manga so the best you can hope for is a continuation of Millenium world and a couple duels between Kaiba, Yugi and Jounochi
Idea/Eidos loops won't affect Monarchs too much, if you want to cripple them you have to ban or limit Pandeity/The Prime Monarch, those are much more dangerous tools than Idea/Eidos, I run 2 pairs and they're there only to cover my ass until I can start milling and searching with Pandeity so I can set The Prime Monarch and have infinite tribute fodder and protection.
If you want to fuck over Monarchs though you just really need to use Zombie World or Vanity Fiends or both, the only way to get out of those is Erebus, naturally you could also use generic traps or spells but Monarchs are extremely dependent on their own archetype support and having more than 45-50 cards doesn't sound too good due to having more probabilities of getting bad hands, or at least that's how I see it.
>a couple duels between Kaiba, Yugi and Jounochi
That's literally all I ask of the movie, I really don't care about the new cards shilling for us nostalgiafags, I just want muh DM characters and hammy fights and Jonouchi banter.
Mostly because the YGO movie is going to be like Return of F / Origins for the franchise, which means it's going to try to shill to the nostalgiafags in an attempt to entice them to use Synchros, Xyz, and Pendulums.
>Sora already has his redemption, making the entire point of Smile World fucking pointless.

I know Konami is stupid but it can't be that stupid.
Look at the comment section of any LK vid and you'll see why this will cause the movie to fail catastrophically
>implying Sora won't be forced back to Academia
>implying Leo won't threaten Sora with getting carded, a fate worse than death
>implying Sora won't just duel Yuya in a duel to the death only so he can die by Yuya's hands rather than get carded by Leo
>implying Sora won't lose to EGAO World and die with a smile in Yuya's arm
F.am, you don't even EGAO.
If you are actually tributing for the most part you are running the deck wrong. Idea/Eidos are what make that deck actually viable through proper speed in the current meta. Without that pair Monarchs drop from tier 1 to tier 2 instantly, and thats being a bit generous.
This sounds more like it. To be truly redeemed Sora will have to make some kind of an ultimate choice between Academia and his friends, not just stall for time and look for loopholes.
That is the logic behind Konami. They want to maximize profits and their pachinko/mobile games rake in WAY more than any games they make. Konami are ruining games, but logically it makes sense why they are doing it.
Don't blame just Konami being evil, blame Japan for being so obsessed with mobile games and almost gambling too.
My mistake, I remembered a card having a coin and misremembered it being a coin flip effect. Her deck is still ritual flip based so its utter dog shit.
>Straight duel disk
IS REIJI A FRIEND OR ENEMY?
Yeah, but none of that is stuff that directly goes against his orders from Academia, just like the whole Ruri trade he suggested to Yuuya. I don't think he's quite over the whole "being part of the Academia is my fate" thing yet.
Clearly Sora needs to take lessons from Kaiba about ignoring his destiny and instead deciding his own fate.
Why didn't Isis just attack directly for game instead of relying on that trap(which still should have worked btw) instead of trying to screw Kaiba over with Obelisk?
What was with that Deus ex Machhina?why did the Millenium Rod coincidentally decide to show Kaiba his past life at that crucial moment?
IIRC, she was trying to humiliate him because Kaiba took her card intending to keep it for himself (rather than just borrowing it for the tournament... which he basically that anyway). By beating Kaiba by screwing him over with Obelisk, it would be her own version of payback by making Kaiba regret thinking he could do whatever he wanted.
Aside from Exchange of the Spirit, she never really had anything that could stand up to Kaiba anyway. If anything, Exchange of the Spirit gave Isis a fair chance of beating Kaiba considering she was weaker than either Rishid (would have beat Jonouchi legitimately if he didn't summon Fake Ra) or Marik (all Marik has to do is not summon Ra and he wins, unless she takes Ra from him like Mai did then do the egyptian chant to actually turn Ra against Marik, she wouldn't win). I would even argue that she was one of the weakest of the final eight, either tied with Bakura or weaker than him.
Isis must really suck then.
Even when she cheats using her necklace, she barely stood a chance against Kaiba.
>Isis is weaker than Rishid
Holy crap why do all the female duelists in DM except Anzu and Mai suck so bad.
This was a great duel. On the one hand it showed how pre-determinism is wrong and you have the ability to change your future, but on the other hand it also showed that sometimes you need to embrace who you truly are even if you don't believe it/don't want to.
Bakura almost beat Yugi using fucking Destiny Board of all things. The fact Yugi even needed Slifer was silly in my mind considering how shit Bakura's deck was, and probably could have won with or without it (then again I always assumed Bakura was a strong duelist with a shit deck).
Then again, all of Bakura's duels were against characters with plot armour, most of them being against Yugi (can't lose) or Kaiba (strong plot amour unless its the main antagonist of an arc). The only duel he was in where the opponent wasn't saved by plot amour was against Bonz and he was a shit duelist anyway who got BTFO easily.
Then again I haven't seen Yugi vs Bakura at Battle City in a long time so I might be wrong about some of the things.
Bakura was a master tactician that was thrown outside of his field of expertise. He was really talented with RPGs to the point of almost cheating (such as being able to throw dice to always roll criticals WITHOUT magic) and unfortunately for him the card game wasn't something he could manipulate, unlike Atem.
That card is literally useless against DICHROIC MIRROR.
>tfw summon this against an idle Farmgirl
>tfw Farmgirl tags out during the battle phase into Destroyer and tries to pop it

>tfw Dark Destroyer attempts to activate in grave

>tfw swing for game
Only worthy use.
Clear Wing is actually overrated as fuck once it becomes evident that any duelist can take their 2550+ ATK monster and just run Clear Wing over. Goyo would troll Clear Wing since it can run it over and summon it on Security's field. Chimera trolls Clear Wing card since it negates effects in the damage step (or in the anime, its the entire battle phase), can revive Clear Wing on Sora's field with all of its 2500 ATK (only in the anime), then it attacks Yugo directly. If Yugo targets either Chimera or Clear Wing (since both are Level 5 or higher), Yugo gets DICHROIC MIRROR'd himself.
Shun could just summon Revolution Falcon and just attack Clear Wing since Revolution Falcon's effect when it battles Special Summoned monsters doesn't target.
The majority of the DDDs can just kill Clear Wing in battle. The only ones that can't are Temujin, Caesar and Ragnarok, the former two get effects when they die and the latter is a Pendulum that revives a DDD every time it is summoned.
Howl of the king, shake the heavens and the earth! Engrave the power of the one and only supreme king into yourself! Synchro Summon! Savage soul, Red Daemon's Dragon Scarlight!
HANKI NO GEKIRIN SUTORAIKU DISUOBEI!
Reminder that Scarlight will get BTFO by OERD and Yuya will become the KINGU
I wish I had more art of Dennis with Chaos Giant.
Clear Wing is still a pest to most of Chimera's actual materials. There are ways to circumvent that, obviously, and Frightfur Fusion takes the edge off, but that's why Yugo supports Clear Wing with Tri-Eyed Dice (or Chasing Wings), like he'd have done if Yuto had swung with his 2500+ ATK monster.
>mfw Reiji's next duel has him debut a Pendulum Synchro and/or a Pendulum Fusion.
>mfw Reiji's Pendulum Synchro and/or Pendulum Fusion will be so powerful that they make the anime version of Kali Yuga look completely shit.
If people thought the anime version of Kali Yuga was ridiculously good, just wait until Reiji goes BEYOND THE PERFECT.
>Gives Tatsuya the Entermachine archetype
>Has the "Enterma" theme like Entermates and Entermages
>Completely unrelated to them since they have no Pendulums... or any extra deck stuff for that matter.
>Tatsuya's duel with Reira was hyped for nothing, and their interaction at the end meant nothing since Yuya and Jack were the one who gave Reira the character development.
Will Yugi get synchro monsters for Dark Magicians? We'll obviously be out of synchro by the time April comes but I still feel like they could use them, Dark Magicians are all over the place with their levels unlike Blue Eyes.
He started fucking with the duel lines, likely to capture Serena and ignore her and Yugo's duel. The people won't give too much of a shit because it means they'll get to Jack vs the champion much faster.
>Is he trying to get rid of Yugo
Yeah, he's probably trying to make him crash. Jean really does hate the Yuu's. Scared of Yuri, Wants Yugo to lose, and cutting Yuya's head open.
>Reiji dueled 3 times thus far

Remember when there was a trash town sub-plot?
Anyone else find it how ever since 5Ds YGO series started fucking blowing through their opening/ending songs?
I mean DM was just 5 OP/ED across a grand total of 224 episodes, and then GX had 4 across 180 (99% and Wake up your Heart are pobably the OP/ED that ran for the longest amount of episodes in the entire series), 5Ds had even less episodes and got to 5, Zexal... yeah, Zexal, and now Arc-V, right before even reaching 80 episodes, it jumped to its 4th OP/ED.
Did they just realize around 2008 that they could cash on the singles or something?
Yes, especially when they realized that if they pick catchy songs people will buy them. Burn and Trump card are still the best of Arc-V so far, I hope the fifth opening can match with them instead of BelieveXBelieve and Hanate
>Burn and Trump card are still the best of Arc-V so far
But Hanate was the best Arc-V opening?
One of the few things that made the transiton from NEBAGIBA NEBAGIBA NEBAGIBA to ARC of Smile a lot easier.
I mean I like AoS but it just isn't DA PERFEKT
>mfw ARC-V got fucked over harder by Darkside of Dimension than 5Ds ever did by Crow or the Carly VA sex cult thing... and yet despite those setbacks, is STILL the best YGO series, and could NEVER be considered purely because Zexal (and to a lesser extent, DM) exist.
Please let the 5D'sfag put his money where his mouth is and make whatever combination Clear Wing Synchro Dragon and Odd Eyes Pendulum Dragon make amazing to see when appears. I know it won't be Shooting Star Dragon level of awesome but I want it up there.
>yfw we get pic related but with Reira because 5Ds reference.
>yfw Yuri cards Reira because Reira was trying to get in Yuri's way.
>yfw Yuya witnesses Reira suffering physically and mentally, experiencing true despair before getting carded by Yuri.
That'll be nothing comapred to when Yuya witnesses his own flesh and blood carded along with his friends
That duel was seriously creepy, I mean, Jeez, Luka actually started dying as if the writers suddenly remembered that she was a bit on the frail side. In fact, I always felt like the twins really didn't belong in this series and were suppose to be kid inserts so they could identify the show as a card game.
Why do some people still believe that Dennis is better than Sora?
I don't know, but I always was suspicious of him because of his nice guy personality. Sora was a jerk, therefore he seemed to be more natural and unlikely to be purposely plotting against our MC and his friends (Shun isn't Yuya's friend).
UNLIKE Dennis, who I always believed he was a classical 'Bitch in Sheep's Clothing'. His friendliness was a mask.
Even if it turned out that Dennis' personality is genuine, he still doesn't do anything and doesn't genuinely repent. His friendliness is irrelevant if doesn't do anything about it.
Sora had showed that he cared in spite of his jerkassery. Heck, he even apologized to Tsukikage and admitted that that wouldn't be enough.
And if that wasn't bad enough, Dennis is just another Shingetsu clone and Academy spy. He strikes me as redundant.
Any ideas of why people still love Dennis more?
I really hope that's not the case.
He needs more suffering.
Mind control is my fetish too.
Some people just have shit taste anon
I really like the Battle Royal stuff that happens soon after that. Synchro is... okay but has some highlights worth watching in my opinion i.e. Yugo vs Sawatari, ETERNAL AVENGE!
And I'd say just google search for episodes anon.
>Yuya and Yuri's VA
>Darkside of Dimensions drains the budget even more
>If IV comes back for the Xyz Dimension, that a bucketload more money because its also Reiji's VA.
>If Edo comes back for the Fusion Dimension, that would also be rather expensive.
>If Aoi Yuuki ever voiced a character in ARC-V other than Mieru, or even if Mieru became more prominent, ARC-V is kill.
Does the writers even know that they have a budget to keep track of? Even without the nostagiafag movie existing, those would be some REALLY expensive VAs.
Were Yugi's, Judai's, Yusei's or Yuma's VA ever as expensive (or moreso) than Yuya and Yuri's VA?
Dennis is a genuinely entertaining character and is quite earnest. He feels like a product of his environment that would rather be an entertainer but his alliances lie with his countrymen. Dennis has shown to be useful even if he was a double agent, he also is shown to be more of an informant rather than a soldier. Was it obvious he was a traitor? Yes. But he put more effort into getting along with everyone and it seemed to come naturally due to his natural charisma.
Sora is a douchebag who was a piece of shit to everyone but was treated nicely for essentially no reason. Not only was he very blatantly not trustworthy from the start but he took sick levels of pleasure in hunting games and is twisted to a personal level. He seems to be showing "remorse" but he only has had any regret for his actions when it directly affects something directly connected to him. Sora is ultimately an extremely selfish little turd, he has said he is sorry but none of that felt genuine other than a way to get Tsukikage on his side.
Ultimately Sora has done more awful on screen shit than Dennis. Dennis has also shown levels of restraint that Sora has not, he only went all out against Shun and even then he tried to avoid going that deep. Are they both traitors? Yes. Are they both victims of circumstance, fighting for the world that raised them? Yes. But Dennis is far more enjoyable and endearing.
Also I hate Sora's stupid monkey face.
KENN only really started his career with him. He noticed it too and tried to ask for moar money. He is the reason why GX ended so weirdly.
I think he was a bit expensive, he wasn't really a VA
A dubber (Spencer Breslin's and Edmund Pervensie's 'official' VA) and a nobody so I'm guessing that not.
Judai's VA was probably the only one who was known when before voicing Judai, compared to Yuya's though, Ono was reginonally recognised in Japan before voicing Yuya, so him being expensive is a no brainer.
Yuma's one started his whole VA career with ZEXAL. So I doubt that he won a lot.
Yusei is the singer in a band, Judai and Yugi have singing careers so they are sightly more expensive.
Kensho is by far the more expensive MC VA.
It's funny, I think the opposite. I could always see his redemption from a mile.
He was loved because of his cute face and that didn't last.
For me, I can buy Sora's redemption. I can't even see Dennis redeeming.
>>If Edo comes back for the Fusion Dimension, that would also be rather expensive.
Really a bunch of the important people from GX are surprisingly big names, Taiki Matsuno, Sanae Kobayashi, Koyasu, Akira Ishida, etc.
Also, let's not forget how they've had 4 opening and ending themes across 80 episodes, and you can bet your ass once we reach 100 they're gonna change them again.
Yugi and Yusei's VAs are singers first and foremost, so you can bet they were at least a bit expensive, as he played Judai, KENN got even more popular and expensive as a VA, on top of his musician career, Yuma's was a no one.
Yuya's VA is basically going the KENN path except more expensive even (and he already had a bit of a name before Yuya)
>He was loved because of his cute face and that didn't last.
And I never found him cute. I found him to be an annoying and cocky little piece of shit that I couldn't stand. His obsession with candy was also overly forced down my throat as "endearing" but just came off as annoying since it was so overt.
Personally I am hoping that Dennis
is revealed to be part of Reiji's keikaku and was made into a triple agent.
>Ultimately Sora has done more awful on screen shit than Dennis
The worst thing Sora ever did was card Hikage, someone who if Sora didn't card him, Obelisk Force probably would have carded him along with Michio and Teppei.
Dennis is literally the entire reason the Heartland Invasion happened because he greenlighted the invasion and manipulated Ruri completely. Him ordering the invasion after finding Ruri was single-handedly worse than anything Sora has done both on or off-screen, since he directly caused the invasion which led to basically everyone in Heartland getting carded aside Yuto/Shun/Ruri... and some random people Shun neglected to mention until we get to Xyz Dimension.
Even then, Sora told Yuto that his allies (Academia duelists) went to Heartland and fought gallantly but Sora said nothing about himself taking part in the invasion. Surely if Sora did take part, that would be the first thing he would mention to Yuto just to be arrogant. There is no way Sora would omit his role in Heartland to appease Yuto since this was during the duel against him.
I assumed that Sora only became a high-ranked Academia member recently, not long before he first came to Standard, so he wouldn't have even been given permission to go to Heartland by Leo since he wouldn't have been experienced enough in Leo's eyes.
I feel the same. Sora went from laughing maniac to "Do whatever you want with me" way too quickly. I fully expected him to become a good guy because FRIENDSHIP but the way it was done was just lazy.
I watched 5DS all over again, and ARC V. And Crow is a very likable character, I do have to say that Crow was way better in the first episodes he was introduced oppose to BUY BLACKWINGS at the very end. But it's the same thing with Kurosaki, very likable but he's just there for BUY RAIDRAPTORS. If you want me to compare the first 64 episodes of the series, 5DS feels real, while ARC V feels a bit generic and lifeless. Or maybe that it's just a lot of content they want to showcase so they cut most of it and try to cram
Everything. For example two tournaments , and so many characters to develop, oppose to 5DS which was one tournament and fewer characters to develop. YUSEI feels like a good MC he feels genuine, while YUYA feels generic all he does is scream M-MUH YUZU every episode. Also I don't understand how a lot of you guys HATE CROW but LOVE SHUN when essentially they're the same character at the same time period. IM SURE whe ARC V is over and Shun is just a BUY RAIDRAPTORS you guys will hate him too. I think 5DS is far superior, I think ARC V is good better than DM ZEXAL, and I guess IN MY OPINION TIED WITH GX OR JUST A BIT BETTER THAN GX. I think that if ARC V Spent more time developing characters and not having every episode being MUH YUZU it would be cool. Kinda like the battle royale arc. That was pretty fucking good.
I can buy that.
Their love transcends any ideology.
There is a difference between being the informant that gives the go flag and being directly responsible. He was just their signal to know where Ruri was, Dennis finding her was not the true catalyst of the invasion just the one that decided when to start. We can only speculate what level of participation they had in the hunting games, but the way I inferred it was Dennis was an informant who spent his time trailing Ruri and bowing out once Yuri showed up to take care of her. Likewise Sora's extreme eagerness and excitement at the hunting game showed a level of pleasure that he seemed accustomed to, Sora was fully aware of what he was doing and loved every second of it showing absolutely no remorse.
In the end we do not know how much they participated in the hunting games, but Sora just seems more rotten to his core than Dennis. Even if that isn't the case Dennis is just a lot more entertaining and is by far the best entertainer in the cast so I just enjoy his presence a lot more, his duels have been the most fun.
Also >>134022771 hit another one of my big problems with Sora: his redemption feels way too rushed/forced and people are forgiving him way too easily.
>Yuya feels Generic
What? If anything he feels less generic and different to the MC's of the past series.
>He never won any tournament by now
>He doesn't steal the spotlight compared to the past MC's
>He hasn't defeated any major villains yet
If anything he feels way different to the others MC's which I like, considering this was the problem of the past series. The MC gets a shitton of focus where the side characters just vanish as if they are not there or needed.
Also Yusei not generic? Come on that guy was a stu with no fucking personality. If you want an example of a good MC then Judai is one.
>Dislike Kurosaki at the end
Remember that we still have an XYZ Dimension arc to go through, and I'll bet anything Shun will be with Yuya there. There is still a ton of opportunities to flesh him out once most of the cast is carded/left in the other dimensions, so he might not yet fall to the level of Crow.
>he's just there for BUY RAIDRAPTORS
Sure, let's all ignore his quest in order to get his sister back and revenge against Academia, that surely has little to no relation to the main plot, while the stuff Crow had in 5Ds was so important in comparison, and they are both doing the same thing in Arc-V.
>Yusei is a genuine a good MC while calling Yuya generic
Sure cardgame Jesus is a super interesting and non-generic main character in contrast to a kid with a ton of issues and layers of personality that are being developed in the show.
Also his head will be cut open soon to have a mind control chip implanted in him
Bennis also actually showed hints of remorse before any other character forced him to, which is a plus. And he took his loss to Shun far better instead of going "fucking xyz scum" like Sora did.
What the hell is wrong with your shift key?
Either way, no one will deny the first half of 5Ds is amazing and better than the first 64 episodes of Arc V since Arc V's first 20 or so are complete dog shit. The problem is 5D's fucking TERRIBLE second half ruins a lot of the credit it gets because its almost as bad as the first half is good.
As for Crow, Crow strikes a sore spot for many people purely because he was nonstop shilling Blackwings and that deck was a cancer deck in the actual game because of how much support it got. Indirectly thanks to Crow the world championship ended in, if iirc, the top 8 consisting of 7 Blackwing decks and one other deck that didn't get past top 8. Crow gets shit on mainly because Blackwings are a faggot archetype and because of his shilling them Crow is indirectly responsible for making the game less fun. Also minor gripes are his design looks kinda retarded, he is everyone's childhood friend, and he feels really superfluous since his dragon wasn't even a dragon.
Can I get a good few episodes of him just being adorable before that? Basically, tell me any episodes of him that I need to watch. Gimme a hot springs episode and I'll love you forever.
The Dark Signer arc had it fair share of problems, besides the awful last duel of it, and that's without taking into account the fact Crow was so fucking shoehorned it didn't feel funny at all.
Anything before 33/34 really.
Other than that, are you a fan of Tokyo Ghoul?
Oh forgot to mention in >>134023113 but what the fuck are you talking about Yuya being generic and Yusei isn't? Yusei is only trumped in being 1 dimensional by Yuma, especially since his duels just slowly devolve into finding a new way to win with Stardust. Yuya has many facets to his personality including the whole struggle of trying to be like his father when its very clear his style as a duelist is more naturally inclined to brute force power rather than entertainment.
Dark Signer's isn't perfect, I will forever say the best arc in all of Yugioh will be S4 of GX. But its a hell of a ride never the less, and really contrasted by that awful second half.
And yeah that is Crow's biggest problem, he just adds nothing. Crow is the equivalent of Honda, you start questioning why he is even there since he adds fucking nothing. Arc-V Crow feels a lot more digestible due to him at least being shown to be competent and we are currently in an arc where they are scouting for strong duelists.
Because being a Kensho Ono character is SUFFERING
Keep in mind that the director and co workers themselves said that they made Yuya different to the other MC's, so you saying he's generic just makes it feel right out of context.
Indeed, Arc-V's Crow is way better than 5D's one, and I think Fortune Cup arc was better than Dark Signer overrall, even though it was the hell of a ride with giant Reptiles eating assholes.
Fucking this. Dennis at least showed some level of remorse without others goading him into doing it. He also didn't have the reaction of wanting to violently murder people over matters of vanity/pride.
Child soldiers normally end up like Reira: cold and emotionless. Sora is indoctrinated and you can blame him being a product of his environment, but that doesn't make up for how much he seems to genuinely enjoy doing such terrible things and being so aggressively evil.
Don't worry, Yuya is still cute.
Bennis a nice guy, actually. The only character from Academia who isn't too edgy or autistic.
If you want a good show, keep watching past that. The next 2 episodes are arguably the best in the series, so you may want to watch it just for some badassery and Ebina-quality animation.
>Arc-V will finish without a single Yuya/Yuzu flashback
When we get there Fusion version of Highspeed Riders/Wing Raiders, we will probably get Moonlights then.
>Yuri's archetype and the Fusion Dragon
>TCG/OCG exclusive Fusion archetype
>Ancient Gear Hound Dog, Ancient Gear Double Bite Hound Dog, Ancient Gear Triple Bite Hound Dog, Ancient Gear Ultimate Bite Hound Dog , and Ancient Gear Chaos Giant
>Anything left over goes to Sora's Fluffals/Edge-Imps/Frightfurs since he already has an established archetype and doesn't need as many slots as Yuri/Serena do.
We might get a Pendulum set which has
>Sawatari's Underworld Troupe
>TCG/OCG Pendulum archetype
>Anything left over can go to Dennis' unreleased Entermage/Pendulum support he used in Synchro Dimension arc.
I want more of the Yu's and Ru's interacting as children. Especially Yugo and Rin.
once he became a lancer obviously
>picked up a series after first episode, just for Yuya.
>Life is good.
Well of course Sora will enjoy doing terrible things if he thought that Academia was right and noble. Serena had no qualms crushing innocents and only regretted it once Yuzu told her the truth, and then when Shun told her what happened in Heartland.
I think Sora's enjoyment of hurting people was genuine but after episode 49 and learning that Academia were after Yuzu too, that is what changed him. The idea of fusing all the dimensions together is something that Sora never objected to, only that Yuzu must be captured and Yuya be forced into it. Even Serena doesn't oppose the idea of merging the dimensions, so long as innocent people aren't carded or killed in order to do it.
The only time he was ever really aggressively evil was against those from the Xyz Dimension (Shun and Yuto) or anyone who interfered in his mission (Hikage got carded for trying to keep Sora away from Serena). Even now, Sora was about to duel Tsukikage simply for interfering with his plan to reunite Yuya and Yuzu.
>people actually like Yuya
Well fair enough people can like what they want but he probably ranks as one of my least favorite in the show.
>Not liking Yuya
I think you're the weird one here.
>implying people actually dislike Yuuya
>Serena had no qualms crushing innocents and only regretted it once Yuzu told her the truth, and then when Shun told her what happened in Heartland.
That is a big difference. Sora knew the full weight of his actions and what the hunting games entailed and that only proved to excite him further.
>but after episode 49 and learning that Academia were after Yuzu too, that is what changed him
This is furthering the point that Sora is a little turd because he is all for the murdering innocents and having fun doing it thing but suddenly when people he knows get involved then its morally wrong. Its in the same vein of being a hypocrite.
Its always possible that Sora could have been trained from day one knowing exactly what he was being trained to do while Selena was treated special by the professor and it almost seems as if she was sheltered about what the Academia was really up to.
almost every thread until dennisfag is carded.
Being sick sucks.
Let's remember Dennis saying
>boku no turn
>and let's begin the hunting game
1.let's not imply that dennis showed remorse for kidnapping ruri, he just did not want to dirty his hands even more on his "acquantaince",
2.also since he shows what a hunting game it kind of implies that he could have fought agaisnt heartland with a jobeslisk force helmet on.
he is a sociopath wanting to be accepted everywhere he goes.
Can't imagine the budget they'll throw out for Ruri's VA
>dat back arch
>Literally what is going on in this show?
This is the strongest Ruri.
Did she pick out that outfit herself or did Reiji
>This is the strongest Ruri.
She will job in his first onscreen duel. Truly impressive.
>tfw I learnt Napoleon was called Corporal Violet of all things, thus Violet Emperor would be an oddly fitting name for Yuri's Dragon considering Yuri himself is basically the Kaiser of ARC-V Academia.
>Yuri uses at least one Violet card.
>Academia is basically France, Germany and Russia combined.
>GX had the mini-arc where the Monarchs were used, who IIRC their Japanese archetype name is Emperor.
I'd laugh if it was caled Violet Toy Fusion Dragon though because that would be an really random GX reference. Especially since Sora has two Toy cards: Toy Vendor (makes the summoned monster a Toy monster, only in the anime at least) and Toy Parade, and the Des-Toys are still treated as Toy monsters.
However I would be mindblown if it was called Violet Vision Fusion Dragon because
>Vision = sight = eyes = Odd-Eyes = fitting
>Vision HEROs... a GX manga reference
