It's a pirate episode
Reminder, 50 eps of syn-crow was a mistake
>5Ds fans get 50 episodes no matter how bad the quality is
>Zexal fans get Kaito never losing
>GX fans have to watch Asuka do nothing but suck Yusho's dick and watch Edo always lose, have shitty cards and scream all day and night.
Fuck this shit.
Maiden with eyes of Blue in the anime when?
Of all the decks
Of all the GX ERA decks
Of all the fucking decks they could have given a pirate living in the Fusion Dimension
They give him a literal pirate deck
Has Arc-V forsaken us?
>This could have been the 20th anniversary movie poster
>We could have gotten another crossover
>When the entire plot of Arc-V is about crossing dimensions
>instead we got Dark Side of Dicks
>DM fans get a 130 movie with top tier animation and Kaz's writing
For some reason Kaz isn't that fond of spin-offs.
Dark Side of Dimensions even had this pamphlet being given out that said it has no connection to any of the future series.
Besides, BBT was terrible and we certainly don't want another one of those.
Fuck a crossover movie. The last one was Judai and Yugi getting one turn while Yusei got two. Paradox was a shitty villain too. With 5 protags the movie would just be Yuya dick sucking and Pendulum summoning all the aces in some contrived way. No thanks. I'd rather each series get their own movie or even just a TV special about what happened after their series.
Yeah cause you did such a bang up job the last time
Will Sawatari and Gon duel Sora to become the true third wheels?
>It's an /Arc-V/ has another mental breakdown" episode
I'm sorry lads but watching the writers do EXACTLY what you don't want them to is hilarious
It takes a special kind of stupid to perform below Servamp
Have you bought your Blackwings yet?
And there will be a Kaito duel in-between each of them.
RIP in NTR former imoutoman.
>Kaz isn't that fond of spin-offs.
No surprise there as drinking buddies from Konami, Shueshia, and NAS get him drunk as for new series and a drunken Kaz agrees. He just wanted to only do GX but wss conned into 5D's and beyond. Pic related.
>cancel the GX movie because it would bring back Atem
>have it replace the last 2 episodes of GX and bring back Atem anyways
>bring back Atem for BBT and DSoD.
why do guys even bother at this point?
the only thing people want to see from yugioh is the goddamn movie in all its glory
this short segment is so much better than the all of Arc, save maybe for episode 34
Okay here it is. Kaz pretty much says he just agreed for GX but his higher up buddies got him drunk and blind sidded him with the idea of another Yu-Gi-Oh series. Kaz just took the original concept of the original before the finalized egyptian theme and reworked it into 5D's.
So essentially Kaz gave up the movie and had 2 main points from it take up Season 2 and Season 4 of GX
That explains why Saiou feels so forced and unnecessary and so do the DM cameos.
It was nice to see Judai vs Yugi even if it was inconclusive.
Kaz needs to put down the bottle next to producers. It would save him some effort and betraying himself.
Then again 5ds was pretty decent so I guess it wasn't a total loss.
I wonder how drunk he was when they asked for Zexal and Arc-V.
>I wonder how drunk he was when they asked for Zexal and Arc-V.
obviously they got him fucking stoned with painkillers and vodka and forced him to make something up in the spot that would be the basis of the whole things
>obviously they got him fucking stoned with painkillers and vodka and forced him to make something up in the spot that would be the basis of the whole things
Isn't that how Zorc got to be well endowed with Dragon dong and Millennium World was rushed as fuck?
A drunken Kaz, sex cults and Blackwings do not mix well anon.
I bought a box. I got pretty much everything in the set which is what I wanted. It's ridiculously easy to pull any card you want, Tewart was nice to us this time. But if you just want the Magi Girls you can probably get a play set of all of them under $15 maybe lower depending on how prices fall.
I guess it varies? I pulled a few Gandoras but I had trouble with other cards like Berry Magician Girl which I only got one of, Clear Kuriboh one of, and the alternate art Blue-Eyes. But usually you'll get one of everything from all the other unboxing videos I've seen.
Well BBT and GX I would say took place in an alternate timeline before the Ceremonial Duel Atem being there is ok.
From my knowledge of the movie he only appears once while Yugi and Kaiba are having the dimension duel against Aigami in a different dimension and gives Yugi the Mahad card for a very brief amount of time. He then shows up at the end in the afterlife when Kaiba dimension hops so I don't really know if that counts as "bringing" him back.
Its not Gay in the slightest but just recently it went a bit shitty. Watch if you want but don't expect Evangelion levels of crazyness
Literally the least gay Yugioh has ever been.
Is Reiji the new Misawa?
>tfw we are inching so ever closer to a DM Super.
I remember back when those two were announced and all the hypothetical banter between those two and Asuka carding his family. Letting Kaito live was a mistake.
I'd say about 3x - 4x longer. Having Synchro and Xyz be the same length would've been better at about 13 episodes each. I'd even take 25 for Syncho and 15 for Xyz and we'd still be below the amount of episodes Synchro actually got.
>tfw you can't see Kagami and TsudaKen in person talking about their experience working on the movie
God I hope TsudaKen does a future YGO character.
That implies that Reiji is expendable.
After watching those two leaked scenes I have to say Tsuda Kenjirou is probably my favorite YGO voice actor now dethroning Hosoya. Especially the one where he summons the Chaos Blue-Eyes, you could feel the inner turmoil and anger swirling inside him. It gave me chills. Hosoya is good too but Tsuda is just on another level. It's funny how I didn't get those same vibes in the DM anime, maybe it's because Kaz had more control in this movie than the DM anime.
>HEY GANG WE SHOULD PROBABLY END THIS DENNIS PLOTLINE SOON
>Alright, let's have Yuya duel him
>NO, we need to have Kaito do that
>Then who will Yuya duel, Kamishiro-san?
Aqua is at least fun with her magic
Kaito in Arc-V is SO BOOOOOOORING!
You can't be serious
It's sad when fansubs being overly liberal is the best thing that happened to ARC-V Kaito so far.
I'm sure Reiji will send a medical transport to save him.
Just wait til they shit on Yuya's heartfelt feelings for Yuzu in Reji vs Yuya 2 in the dub. Remember how in the original how Yuzu is his key person? In this case Yuya will probably be fighting Declan because he made fun of Zuzu for being a loser. They'll probably not even bother having Yuya's voice actor voice the episode completely enraged either. After all they cut all those scenes of Yuya screaming such as when the knight of duels got carded and when Sora carded Tsukikage's brother. I bet you dollars to donuts they'll completely shit on Yuya's letter to Yuzu as well as Shun vs Dennis round 2
>Dennis vs Shun 2
Fuck I was so focused on how they're going to deal with Sergey I forgot about that duel.
SHIT. They're going to completely ruin all the important moments aren't they?
YARR HARR YIPPITY DEE
AM I JUST BRAINWASHED OR BACKSTABBY
BEING RETARDED IS COMMON WITH ME
I AM A TRAITOR!
YARR HARR YIPPITY DEE
YUYA X YUZU IS MY OTP
MAYBE BY SAVING THEM I'LL MAKE AN OT3
I AM A KEKOLD!
YARR HARR YIPPITY DEE
ALL I WANTED WAS TO SAVE RURI
NOW KAITO IS DUELING INSTEAD OF ME
I JUST GOT AKI'D!
YO! ya-yo, ya-yo Dreamin', don't give it up Yuya Dreamin', don't give it up Yuzu Dreamin', don't give it up Kaito Dreamin', don't give it give it up give it up give it up give it up give it NO! Here's how the story goes we find out About Academia in the Fusion Land Theres no doubt, The Ruris are in the Professor's hands Yuya'll duel and preach about entame He's gonna make everything magically okay Ya-yo, ya-yo, ya-yo, ho-ho His name is Yuya That's Sakaki Yuya Gonna bring duels with smiles He's gonna stop Leo - (female singers) how's he gonna do that Yo-ho-ho he's got a card called EGAO World Ya-yo, ya-yo His name's Kaito, He's been their friend for so long And a L-A-D-Y Yuzu's crude and strong The EGAO crew coming through, doin' their thing, With the power of brainwashing, they're gonna find Ruri and Rin! Ya-yo, ya-yo, ya-yo, hoo-hoo Set sail for Academia, it's the name of the school in Yuugou Jigen Ya-yo, ya-yo Set sail for Academia! I hate myself for this
But this show isn't 5D's, GX or Zexal. Honestly, I wish the writers didn't bring back legacy characters. They should have focused on ARC-V's original characters like they originally intended to.
What stupid duel concept will they exhaust before returning conclusion of the show? My money's on an Astronaut duelist
I just wanted a series about Yuya and Yuzu, not just Yuya. Why can't we have a fun tag-duel series instead? Atleast Yuya is miracle of the universe I guess.
So tonight we'll know for sure if serena is either yugo tier retarded or brainwashed. I hope you moonlight fuckers are ready. I also hope that anon who refused to share that doujin about the cats gets krabs.
>doujin about the cats
What? Which doujin?
>trying to make Yuya a prostitute for his underwater Academia
Yes. Seeing Future Trunks again is better than Synchro. Seeing Future Trunks react to what Gohan has become, how he dealt with Buu, meet his past self and bring back the plot was better than anything in Arc-V. People have been asking questions about Future Trunks for decades and we finally get them answered.
Meanwhile Arc-V shits all over itself at every opportunity. Last week in Super we saw Trunks meet up with Gohan again and think about the family he could have had. Last week in Arc-V we saw a shitty Kaito duel against shitty Dennis who carded himself after not making sense the whole episode and going against the personality he had established since coming back.
Fuck you, DSOD was amazing.
Praise DM and praise Kaz
He ever offered 100 million yen to have him.
DBZ is better than Arc-V ok but in no way in hell Super is better than anything.
1. Fanfic Tier Villain
2. Terrible animation yeah even worse than Arc-V
3. Terrible fights
Dragon Ball is much better than ARC-V, to the point that the two aren't even comparable.
On the other, DBZ is the most overrated shonen anime ever. It's fucking bad and you should remove your nostalgia goggles.
Jack vs Sergey was shit. Jack vs Yuya had a terrible conclusion and Hitotsu ni did absolutely nothing. You guys hype up the most basic of shit.
>1. Fanfic Tier Villain
Where are the villains in Arc-V?
>2. Terrible animation yeah even worse than Arc-V
Are you going to post those old screenshots that got even Toriyama hot? The animation is shaky like all long running shonen but this current arc has been very consistent.
>3. Terrible fights
Are we going there? Have you been watching Arc-V? It hasn't had a single good duel in like 20 episodes.
>but this current arc has been very consistent.
Hahahah yeah sure whatever you say
>Have you been watching Arc-V?
What is Yuya Vs Kachidoki???
>What is Yuya Vs Kachidoki???
A bad duel where both players spammed action cards, Yuya never felt at a disadvantage, a joke was made into a full plot point and Kachidoki got a shitty backstory that added nothing to the story. It was filler. Bad filler.

Fun doesn't make it good. I have fun with Sonic 06 but it's still a terrible game. I didn't find Kachidoki sitting on a boss monster all duel while Yuya is able to spam the field fun. Arc-V has terrible duel writing because of how Pendulum summoning works, how thinly it's spread and how everyone sits on bosses all day except for people who can Pendulum. It takes the worst of all other series and crams them together.
>tfw you realize Hikokubo will never be fired and we will continue to get inconsistent duel writing forever
You're retarded. Asuka and Yuri have dueled only once in the course of the show, and their duels were over in a flash. You can't know for sure if they sit on boss monsters or not.
Plus, we're probably getting a Serena duel soon.
>we're probably getting a Serena duel soon.
Not soon enough, since the summaries mention nothing of her or Yuya's group whereabouts, for that matter.
INB4 they ended up on an random island
>Arc-V is literally the worst yugioh anime, behind both GX and Zexal
Where did it all go wrong bros?
Pick one,nerd. Zexal was awesome. I think you mean 5D's in place of it. GX was a fucking trainwreck of a show that didn't know what it wanted to be right until the very end. 5D's shat on all of it's characters in favor of shilling and lazy friendship speeches just like Arc-V. Both series share the same director as well so in Arc-V's case it's history repeating it'self. Symphongear was not immune to this either.
So if you want a good YGO, you want people who worked on Zexal. Yuma sucked but he's a far more compellling main character then the sues that Judai,Yusei and Yuya became in their later incarnations. 2 out 5 is a fucking horrible average and I hope Konami learns from it.
It's not even about Zexal's popularity, fucktard. It's about how superior it was to the other spin-offs.
It had the best production values and the most consistent writing. 5D's, GX and ARC-V can't even hope to come close to it, even though ARC-V can still redeem itself.
Duel losses can be used to make a character less invulnerable, but it is by no means the only or even a major factor in if an MC manages to be enjoyable to watch or sympathetic to viewers.
That doesn't make you a sue and Yuya has only lost 3 duels as well. Yuma lost around that many not taking into account silly things like the Lilybot duels where silly things happened.
What makes you a sue is you always being right, the show changing things to make you right when you're wrong, characters acting irrationally around you, the plot warping for you etc. Like Kira and Lacus. Destiny's plot had to warp around just to make them seem right and even then it leaves everyone scratching their heads because it makes no sense.
He was headstrong, overconfident and insensitive. Those were his flaws and they bit him in the ass when people like Edo appeared. Inner darkness wasn't what made him kill his friends. His overconfidence and hard headiness did. Inner darkness didn't make him prioritize Johan over everyone else. Overconfidence, a one track mind and hard headiness did. You're oversimplifying things.
Yuya has lost 5 duels, vs Yuzu, vs Reiji, vs Jack, and vs Barret/Sergey
It was only fun because they were jumping around like idiots, but entertaining idiots.
Either way at this point we shouldn't have duels about retarded grudges and degenerate pirates but to actually expand on our original cast. Oh but wait, it's too late.
You're making these up. They were never emphasized in the show, and the only reason why Judai lost to Edo is because he wasn't strong enough yet.
Also, Judai didn't even kill his friends. The show made it look like he did, but it's actually their fault for insisting on following him. That's why he wasn't guilty of anything.
GX is way better then DM, where in GX more than three characters are actually dueling and developing.
Nostalgia is the only reason you guys love the shit so much.
Oh yeah and Kaiba.
>You're making these up. They were never emphasized in the show
Sure they were. He was insensitive to Edo's situation and head strong and over confident in thinking he could duel through any situation. Just because he didn't sulk on them didn't mean they weren't emphasized. He sure was guilty of killing them and felt as much. They felt that way, he felt that way, his enemies felt that way. Everyone felt he was responsible.
>GX is way better then DM
DM has the most cohesive story since it had a manga as a guideline. GX has the most messy story since it was the first series after DM and they didn't know what they were doing. They got their shit together with GX after the first season but S2 was still full of nonsense like Misawa's mistreatment, the Neo Spacians being able to talk and being independent creatures but rarely doing that later on etc. Show didn't really hit its stride until S3 where it becomes amazing and never looks back.
>Just because he didn't sulk on them didn't mean they weren't emphasized
Yes, it does. The writing let him be overconfident and headstrong without any consequences until Judai's duel against Edo, and even then he managed to come back and win thanks to a deus ex machina(the Neo-Spacians). Just goes to show how relevant his so-called flaws were and how bad the writing was in GX.
>more than three characters are actually dueling and developing.
>Implying that having more characters dueling and developing is better somehow
I'd rather have three really developed characters with consistent development throughout their entire story than multiple characters who only get developed for one part of the story and never change again.
Judai didn't start developing until climax of s3, Edo finished developing after s2, Hell Kaiser Ryo only developed in s3, Asuka hardly developed at all, Misawa never developed, all the American Academia students developed in s3, and the list goes on.
Only Sho and Manjoume were able to stay consistent in that they developed a little bit every season but even then it was only a little bit and their screentime was shunted for Judai and whoever the "special seasonal characters" were.
It's better than Arc-V I'll give you that but it's not what I'd say phenomenal character development or anything like that.
There weren't any consequences because GX was a lighthearted episode of the day type show until later on. There was no flowing plot early on. Just character of the day situations. When things started to get real Judai felt his flaws. Like when he got fucked up in the Gravekeeper duel or when he was terrified after the Camula duel and the nightmares it gave him. He even felt bad about what happened to her. How was Judai winning that duel DEM? You do realize that Yuya created all his Pendulums, Yuma created Hope upgrades and anything he drew with Shining Draw and Yusei created Formula Synchro with God giving him Shooting Star?Judai was anything but perfect.
Yugi was technically the protagonist for the pre-Duelist Kingdom stuff. I'd would also say he was the deuteragonist for the Millennium World.
Even in the Duelist portion of the story he had plenty of moments to himself as well.
But yes overall the story was largely Atem's story with Yugi's starting right at the very end like he said. Thank Kaz for making the Dark Side of Dimensions so we can see that stuff.
Given how 5Ds had a future time-skip at the end and Ono is directing Arc-V/Ebina made that picture of adult Yuya I think it's fair to assume we could have a future time-skip in Arc-V.
>tfw Yuya is shown as a master duel entertainer pendulum summoning left and right with his loyal performapals
>in the stands you can see many people cheering
>scene focuses on a little girl who looks very similar to Yuzu who is cheering for Yuya

>Yuya says OTANOSHIMI WA KORE KARA DA
How will you react? Will this become your most hated YGO show?
>Yuzu watches from the stand
Did you forget that Yuzu also aspires to be an entertainer like Yuya?
Even legacy characters have been side lined. It's the Yuya and Kaito show, with a splash of Yugo.
New series with kid Kaiba as the protagonist when?
I'm surprised Asuka is getting more of her cards printed. Which means she will duel sooner or later, along with Yugo and Kaito (Kill me). And since Yuya is getting more cards printed, Yuzu, Sawatari and Gon will continue to be team peanut gallery.
Yugi is starting to look a bit like Atem. Yeah I know they are past and present incarnations but Yugi always looked more moe than Atem though. Now he's starting to grow into his features considering he hit the gym at this time.
Do you want to see this wide eyed idelistic child grown into an obsessive autist? Also didn't Duel Monsters hit Japan when Kaiba was in high school so why does a 10 year old Kaiba has duel monster cards?
Holy shit, this self awareness.
Why do people hate the Virtual World again? This shit is 10x more interesting than Synchro or Xyz.
I didn't say it wasn't good. Please learn to read. I just said it wasn't as interesting as the DM Virtual World arc. Synchro was an ok arc for me but I would say Xyz was straight up dispensable garbage.
I think it stems from the fact that most people were watching Synchro while it was airing, and they expected the story to pick up the pace. Meanwhile, the writers used a lot of episodes for worldbuilding, and while it wasn't a bad thing it must have been frustrating for the weekly watchers who wanted immediate character interactions and duels and instead had to deal with a drawn out pacing over the course of multiple episodes.
As someone who watched the whole anime in March, I don't think this was necessarily a bad thing, and I think it made Synchro enjoyable but I can understand why people are so unhappy about it. Still, I think the posters here are a little harsh on Synchro.
He's still animated in your haato, anon.
>A gay sex train being viciously run on yuya will never be officially animated by Konami
What's a gay sex train?
>chalked up to be a huge threat
>only had one full duel on screen and even then it was a shitty 5 on 1 duel
>no kind of depth shown or any development
>only 30 episodes left
>no relevance to the plot in sight
I still can't believe how irrelevant they've made this guy. How do you fuck this up? His cards released so far are garbage and he isn't even getting any cards in Raging Tempest. So either they release the rest of his stuff in the SP or he gets some stuff in the last set after Raging Tempest but they'll probably be shit. Way to throw character potential out the window.
That doesn't really do it for me. For all I know they could choose to do it in the last 10 episodes if they wanted to.
I need to see episode spoilers that show Yuri will be important to the plot.
>mainly focused on Jack,
Not really. Crow was more relevant than Jack. Jack sat on his ass for the whole arc other than his intro and the last few episodes of Synchro. He was just a catalyst for Yuya's development. I was pretty disappointed with how much screentime they gave him in proportion to Crow.
He was like a breath of fresh air after the unidimensional fuck that was Yuma. It's a shame that he's started to become unidimensional too since his duel against Jack. I hope he doesn't stay that way.
For me personally, Yuri would've been a better protagonist based on what I've seen of his character. I really like his sarcasm, overexaggerated expressions and how he takes things so lightly because he's confident in himself. I would even take Yugo's stupid shenanigans since I found Yuma's stupidity to be rather endearing and hilarious.
Yuto is straight up boring and Yuya has just gotten annoying at this point so they can fuck off.
why do you care what other people think of him?
If you like him that should be enough for you right?
But Yuya's innocent and cheerful behavior was the epitome of endearing back in Standard. I actually felt bad for him when he was forced to become a child soldier by his circumstances.
he needs to get to the back of the fucking line
I liked Yuya in the beginning. But now he's just gotten so serious about EGAOing everyone it's gotten on my nerves. I guess it doesn't help that I see EGAO as a rather childish and dumb philosophy too.
Yugo vs. Nininana was good.
Dennis vs. Gongenzaka was okay.
Shun vs. Dennis 1 was good.
The prison arc was pointless. Sure, some people liked ENJOY, but he amounted to nothing.
Then, we have the infamous "lock up all the characters in separate hotel rooms so that they have no interaction outside of duels" which put an immense dampener on character development.
Yuya vs. Jack 1 was good.
In terms of duels, the entire first round of the Friendship Cup was good, except for the fact that Serena got shafted out of a proper one. Yuzu cheering up Yuya via duel was cute; the notion of a full blown revolution led by Shinji was enticing; Shun vs. Dennis 2 was one of the high points of the entire series.
Then Yuzu become a damsel in distress for the rest of the arc and Shinji is reduced to a fucking joke. Sora's, Serena's, and Shun's character development were decent enough, but even so, they both end up doing fuck all for the rest of the arc. Yugo as well ends up doing nothing except be an element of Hitotsu Ni. Speaking of Hitotsu Ni, even that is a fucking cocktease, because its appearance amounts to nothing. There are literally no consequences of its emergence despite its presumed massive importance. Sergey gets some points for his bondage fetish and his rocket boots and his duel with Jack. Earthbound nostalgia was fucking dumb.
Then the whole revolution plot comes up but is then immediately dismissed by Jack and Yuya's duel. That is monumentally retarded. It was massive waste of a plot and it marked the beginning of the whole "egao brainwashing" that's been prevalent since.
I feel like I'm neglecting to mention someone. Oh yes, it's fucking Reiji, who FINALLY gets a single duel against Roget (an underwhelming one at that), after keikakuing on his ass doing nothing for the entire arc. Speaking of Roget, I admit his complete psychotic breakdowns were some of the more entertaining points of characterization during the arc.
>after keikakuing on his ass
More like on his feet. The useless council didn't even give him a chair, wasting all that budget on hotel room locks.
If they had properly handled the whole Tops versus Commons conflict, then Synchro could have been good. Instead, they chose to waste all of the worldbuilding in favor of EGAO. On top of that, so many of the characters were relegated to uselessness, and interactions were so minimally developed, that there are so few redeeming qualities of the arc. Legacy characters were a mistake. Shinji only exists to make Crow look good; Crow was really only good for his duel with Shun; Jack, despite his station as King, ended up being a complacent dick who was only good for helping Yuya grow a little (and really, I think it would have been better to have disillusioned Yuya over the course of the arc, rather than building up egao).
Ultimately, the only good things to come from Synchro were some of the duels and a minority of character interactions.
And the proper post to go with it.
Performapal Elemental Hero Neos Magician Duraggon
>Ruka is mai waifu
>Adult being colossal fail
Why is that allowed?
Yuya has only been Dr. Egao for 14 episodes. During the first 100 episodes, Yuya got BTFO everytime he tried to do something he believed in or to spread his way of thinking. Give him time to steamroll; he deserves it after what he went through in Synchro.
>Instead, they chose to waste all of the worldbuilding in favor of EGAO
You clearly don't know what you're talking about. The worldbuilding was the arc's main quality and EGAO got btfo all the way until the end when Yuya beat Jack.
I was saying the worldbuilding was good, but amounted to a disappointing conclusion because it was fixed with egao, instead of a meaningful battle. They built up a good Tops versus Commons conflict, but they shat the bed when it came down to actually realizing it in the show. Yuya versus Jack averting revolution is some of the most retarded handling, period.
>They built up a good Tops versus Commons conflict, but they shat the bed when it came down to actually realizing it in the show. Yuya versus Jack averting revolution is some of the most retarded handling, period.
I know exactly who's behind this post
Because it's monumentally retarded. "GUYS IT'S OKAY SOCIAL DIVIDE, ECONOMIC INEQUALITY, AND CLASSISM DON'T MATTER, JUST EGAO" is the whole resolution of the arc. Why would you bother to go out of your way to build up a very realistic portrayal of strife only to brush it away with such childishness? It's a fucking waste.
What's just as bad is that the trend is continuing. Kaito? Egao'd. Tyler Sisters? Egao'd. Edo? Egao'd. The entire Academia army in Heartland? Egao'd.
we'll do it anon.......
It's a show for children. Of course the conclusion is going to be overly optimistic, and I don't see how people can dislike such a vision of the world without being edgelords.
Good post. People think that just because some things were solved by dueling in Synchro it was fine for the whole conflict to be solved by one duel. It's terrible writing. There is no way anyone can take it seriously.
Yuya has been my Dr. Egao for 115+ episodes.
>It's a show for children.
That doesn't excuse the bad writing or the shafting of the characters not named Yuya. Your edgelord strawman is cute but if you don't understand why people find issue with the show then you need to get your head out of your ass.
Even if an idealistic solution is desired, they could have done that far better by having Shinji's revolution coincide with Academia's invasion and Roget's mind-control of Security. During this, both he and Academia are shown to be common enemies of both Tops and Commons, so they actually have reason to unite and work together to mitigate the threat. Yuya vs. Jack should have been pushed to after Roget's downfall, as a celebration of Tops and Commons coming together, not as the thing that makes it happen.
The problem is that it's a children's show that's trying to present itself seriously what with relatively realistic presentations of classism and genocide, and then throwing away that seriousness to solve the conflicts these create.
You're better off sticking with your Mariks and your Dark Signers and your Barians as villains to avoid the dissonance.
I think yuya is too athletic to have a bubble butt, a cute firm tushie definitely but not something soft and round and thicc

Fuck, you're right. Serena's the only one who's even close and that's not saying a lot.
How to remove the majority of Synchro's flaws:
Don't introduce legacy characters and eliminate the prison arc.
Have Yuzu beat Yugo in a friendly duel after being taught how to Synchro summon.
Have Yuzu take off Bracelet-kun for once so she can have a proper meeting between with he Yuya, and Yugo. This can offer some reconciliation with the whole "oops I killed Yuto" thing but simultaneously show to Yuya that he's not a bad guy since he helped Yuzu, as well as his goal of finding Rin.
Speaking of Rin, dedicate like, a whole episode to a flashback of her, so that she's actually a character rather than a plot device.
Humanize Shun by having him take pity on some random starving Commons kids, maybe have him gamble on a duel to get some money to buy food for them. This would lead him to Shinji, where they could bond over common experience and their respective "revolution" shticks.
Gather all the Lancers and have them enter the Friendship Cup, but cut down the number of duels to this:
Gongenzaka vs. Sawatari
Yugo vs. Serena
Shun vs. Dennis
Yuzu vs. Sergey
Shinji vs. 227
Sora would play the same role, although while Yuya is being held by Roget, Reiji sends Tsukikage to secretly break him out. Then, Shinji's rebellion manifests. Reiji would go to the underground labor facility to ensure the safety of the Lancers sent there. Shun would end up aiding Shinji. Yugo would be more concerned about getting to Academia to rescue Rin. Roget declares martial law, with Security clashing with the Commons.
Amidst this, Academia invades, attacking and carding Security and Commons both indiscriminately. Dennis and Sora clash, with Dennis winning, but Tsukikage comes in to save him, defeating Dennis. Barret, instead of dueling Yuya, would duel Serena instead, and she would defeat him. Reiji would duel Sergey and win.
Yuya and Yugo would team up against Yuri, but then Hitotsu ni would occur, and the four of them would collectively wreak havoc on everyone before Yuzu shows up to end the rampage with Bracelet-kun. With its members defeated, Academia is forced to retreat. Yuzu and Gongenzaka try to cheer up a depressed Yuya with a duel, and while this happens, Reiji duels Roget, and exposes him as an enemy. After Roget's downfall, Reiji calls upon the Lancers to regroup, whereafter Roget fucks everything up with wormhole-kun.
>would duel Serena instead, and she would defeat him
Egao is among the most dis-genuine and artificial moral messages I have ever seen in Yugioh or in children's media in general with how it's been used lately.
It's one thing to push some cheesy message about nakama and stopping evil for the kids to add flavor and some meaning to the dialogue of whatever's happening. It's another thing to use it as some cheap free pass for the writers to not have to think too hard about how to make a resolution happen, disregarding if it's actually convincing or could be done better.
And then Arc-V has the gall to start talking about how great nakama are despite how much of its own main cast, the good guys, feel like familiar co-workers at best due to how little direct interaction they had until towards they very end of Synchro (which by then there was little time for talking). Only for several to either vanish from the show afterwards, or start fading in the background and contributing very little.
I'm in it for this cutie.
WHO HAD POTENTIAL BUT TURNED OUT SHIITY?
CONTRIVED AND POORLY WRITTEN IS HE
IF SIDE CHARACTERS GITTING GUD IS SOMETHING YOU WISH
THEN WATCH SOMETHING BETTER, LIKE SLAYERS ON NETFLIX
YU-GI-OH! ARC-V! YU-GI-OH! ARC-V!
