Episode 126: 悪魔が生まれた日 – Akuma ga Umareta Hi
(The Day the Devil was Born)
As Yuri attempts to turn Sora into a card, Yugo appears before him and challenges Yuri to a Duel. While a fierce battle between Yuri and Yugo unfolds, Yusho, as well as Reiji and others, manage to reach Akaba Leo. Leo begins speaking about the Demon Duelist who leads the world to destruction, as well as the four dragons. What is the reason that the world is divided into four dimensions?
I just watched the episode.
Well, fuck. The duel was pretty intense, and Yuri is a total psycho. I liked it.
The next episode is animated by Hasegawa's squad right? No wonder it looks so bad. I can't wait for 125 and 126.
126 is by Toshihiko Masuda. He's one of the best animators you can find, but none of his Arc-V episodes look particularly good so far. He probably isn't doing any work and just has a team working under his name.
>just has a team working under his name.
That's exactly how it is. They've been in the production cycle since episode 27, and 0 episodes under Masuda's name have looked better than mediocre. Some have been kind of QUALITY, especially if it involves characters moving around. Not the worst team, though.
I was really impressed by their reaction. I didn't think so many people actually liked Asuka.
By the way, how did 2ch and other Japanese fans react to Crow being carded? I'm wondering if their opinions on the legacy characters are the opposite of ours. I mean, save for a people, most western fans I see are glad they're getting sent their way.
It's just one more thing on a long list of stuff the show has done to fuck over GX. Anniversary series are supposed to celebrate the older series and their lore but this show only really celebrates 5Ds with Zexal getting some love too.
True , but late Zexal looks pretty much like movie quality sometimes.
thank you anon
Shun calm down, Yusei christ
Being an anniversary series sure is hard, huh...
Really, I would be ok with just passable looking stills even if there's not a lot of motion (which is pretty limited in Yugioh anyway). In Arc-V, it can't even manage that much a lot of the time.
Also Zexal had good production values for a tv Yugioh, but let's not push it, the show was still obviously way more limited in its animation. But there was some marginal effort in making it feel more dynamic and animated than it actually was.
Kaito wins tons of duels and even beats named characters. The GX duo haven't beaten a single named character and Edo hasn't won at all with no way of winning in sight. Kaito, Crow and Jack all beat named characters and strong duelists. Edo and Asuka don't win shit and are used as fodder to named characters on top of having their personalities drained.
Not really. Gokaiger is celebrated for having so much love for old series. So much so that actors from old Sentai were begging to be in it for multiple reasons. The cameo characters were so good that the Gokaigers themselves got shafted in development but he fans were happy because of how good the previous characters were. Gundam Build Fighters too. Even Kamen Rider Decade gets some credit. Then you have cameo characters appearing in many recent sentai which are usually really popular episodes.
This show is just shit with all characters.
>we should trigger them hard and make Jounouchi/Kaiba get a cameo and job hard
So basically no different from how they were in DM?
I don't think these two have ever beaten an important character in all of DM, just fodder nobody cares about.
That's one of the ways the filler screws with them. Without that, Kaiba lost 3 times (against Yugi) and Jonouchi helps in a lot of games early on and only loses at cards twice, once against Yugi and again after passing out from pain.
Probably not until 2017.
>Yuri isnt a slut ok
If Yuri takes to the bedroom like he takes to dueling, then I'm going to have to disagree.
Shun seems like the kind of guy that would just hug her tightly if she said that and not let go even if she struggled until she gave up, apologized, and hugged him back.
Is there an another with this kind of perspective ? Pic related
Maybe. Could just be Noh drawing shit. He seems to like the idea of the ruris being brainwashed.
I was certain Yuzu would be brainwashed and duel Yuya, but since he's dueling Ruri and Serena and Hitotsu Ni related things will start happening, I'm not so sure anymore.
You sometimes see it used when a character is running, though it's a little more common to be a similar angle at the face.
I agree that the perspective is aeesome, and it makes me hate cartoon princi0les that limit cinematography in the west.
and so according to staff word, Yuto would come up to about here?
Anyone else hyped to see Yuya and Reiji rocking out? I'm pumped to get the ARC-V Best. Theme music was great.
>all that hype over the Yugi vs Kaiba duel
>it's literally just 10 minutes long and Yugi gets cheated out of his win anyways.
I should have known to never trust Konami, Yuya vs Reiji 2 was better than that.
I want to see it.
is that why he befriended Yuto in the first place?
There are clips of it everywhere and it's just Yugi outplaying every single of Kaiba's glass cannon dragons.
>Blue-eyes dies to a trap card
>Chaos MAX dies to Magician Girls
>Deep-eyes dies to Neo Gandora
>Yugi then banishes everything in the graveyard and summons Dark Magician to attack for game
From a critical standpoint I agree with you.
But they tickle a few fetishes of mine so my dick doesn't let me think too hard about it.
"Reminder that Yugo was originally meant to work for Roger so tabs could be kept on Rin until Leo made a move, but because Director Ono wanted 5D's characters back Yugo's backstory had to be changed and a large portion of our episodes have been rushed with characters only fully speaking in one episode at a time. It's also why Rin wears jewelry and Yugo's bike and clothes are so pristine despite being Commons.
"Jack and Crow replaced Shinji and an unknown character who were supposed to be friends as Commons along with Damon and Tony. The Friendship Cup was a tag tournament where the Commons would have a chance to participate and "prove their bonds are anything but Common," with the finalists having to duel against duelists of the Council's choosing -- always ending in defeat for the Commons. Yugo and Rin were supposed to be the player killers for Shinji and Jack's character. The Jack replacement used a deck that requires heavy Life Point sacrifice, and instead of losing with Shinji he sacrificed Shinji's LP so he could beat Yugo and Rin and become King, while leaving Shinji to go back to Commons as a failure. Yugo was supposed to have a rivalry with the Jack replacement for being humiliated in such a way, and Shinji was meant to call the Jack replacement a traitor for literally stabbing him in the back instead of "not doing anything for the Commons" as it is now. The Jack character was Kamishiro's self-insert, because of the color-name puns. Shinji Webber is now instead Crow's friend and was trying to revolt against the Tops for no legitimate reason (because Shinji is Kamishiro's design and there's no other way to use him).
"Just a reminder that the Friendship Cup was supposed to be much shorter because it WAS a tag tournament as a callback to 5D's WRGP, but it was used as a singles because the animators were scrambling to get all of the episodes fixed due to DSoD taking animators and the production company being unable to pay certain big-name seiyuu."
That doesn't make it a bad duel. I don't understand why people are complaining about the dragons losing to strategy and that clip didn't show the end of the duel. It went up to Yugi summoning Gandora. Duels are about the emotions the characters feel as well as the actual game being played. One of Arc-V's biggest problems duelwise is that there is no emotional investment in the duels.
all I know is, Banana is qt but dumb
>Just a reminder that the Friendship Cup was supposed to be much shorter because it WAS a tag tournament as a callback to 5D's WRPG
makes a hell of a lot more sense than what we got
>tfw you were hyped for this card since it had cool artwork and all it needed was the effects to see how they improved over the original vanilla.
Never getting hyped for Nostalgia products ever again. It's literally an infinitely worse Chimeratech Rampage Dragon.
This is why we can't have nice things.
If the friendship cup would have been a tag tournament, which Lancers would have tagged with which?
>"Just a reminder that the Friendship Cup was supposed to be much shorter because it WAS a tag tournament as a callback to 5D's WRGP, but it was used as a singles because the animators were scrambling to get all of the episodes fixed due to DSoD taking animators and the production company being unable to pay certain big-name seiyuu."
This last part sounds rather plausible, even if it is just made up bullshit like the rest of the post.
The name firendship cup and the early emphasis given on Yugo and Rin entering together make more sense for a tag tournament.
I just find stupid that she tried to make Yuri who is a complete lunatic a ally. Bitch wanted to turn the only decent ARC-V villain into a pussy. FUCK HER.
Goddammed fuck her. Hope she never returns
>I was too strong of a duelist, dueling was fun, no one wanted to be my friend, everyone avoided me, but that chick, she's also a strong duelist, yet everyone woos her, fuck I hate everyone REEE, Leo gave me a reason to card people even though I have my own reasons now.
>Good things will never happen as long as Konami is around
>what is Cyber Dragon Infinity
>what is Masked HERO Dark Law
>what is Netabyss the Atlantean Prince
>what is Gofu the Hazy Shadow
>what is Galaxy-eyes Cipher Dragon
>what is Treatoad
Konami can make anything good when they want to.
This one card powercreeped the entire Blue-eyes deck in the OCG now that burgesstoma got imported.
Nah, it's just the cliche "OH THEY HATE ME BECAUSE I'M A MONSTER WAHHHH ILL KILL THEM INSTEAD" Yuri is just a "broken" kid who never experienced any genuine human interaction and decides to kill others as a way of giving his life purpose. He's basically a shitty Gaara from Naruto.
The Friendship Cup could've been like pic related
It was cliche as fuck and rushed. It's easy to see him getting egaoed since his problem early on was having no friends because he was too good. Yuya will relate by saying people hated him because of his dad. Yuri randomly having backstory with Asuka was forced too. They had to try and make the duel personal because both characters were so underused that they barely have a personal connection to any other character on the show.
typical person was too strong and everyone avoided him therefore him becoming a loner yet someone else who was also "strong" had friends, fuck this world
Did you even read the script?
Yuri never cared about being friends with people. He was happy carding people and being the strongest. Leo told him about the ARC Area Project, where he could card anyone he wanted. Obviously Yuri jumped on board, realizing he only felt happy when he beat people. Now he's turned into a complete psychopath, only satisfied when he can kill and card everybody in the entire universe so he can be called the strongest.
I thought some animation directors did leave, or at least decrease their arc-v workload to help working in DSoD.
Well, good to know I was wrong then. Bonds Beyond Time didn't reapeat itself.
I'm dreading the prospect of Yuya reaching out to him and doing the
>you were really just lonely all this time, like ME!
>I know your pain 100%, look at what an empathetic soul I am
>even though I grew up knowing my parents, Gon, Yuzu, and Shuzo back then
and then egaoing Yuri.
>Yuri: As far as I know, I’m just an Academia student.
>I don’t know any relatives, nor did I have any friends.
>The only time I can connect with someone is when I Duel them.
>It was fun defeating my opponents through Dueling…
>I was so strong that people resented me…
>Eventually, nobody even bothers approaching me.
>A man known as the Professor called out to me.
>The Professor told me that when the Arc Area Project begins,
>I can Duel as much as I like, and I can turn the people I defeated into cards.
It seemed more like he had fun dueling, and wanted to keep on dueling and having fun, but no one wanted to duel him since he was too strong, therefore him becoming lonely
naw, Yuyas more the type to let his dueling do most of the talking now
Yeah i kind of agree. Its cliche as fuck but at least Yuri doesn't act like Gaara or and edgy loner like Sasuke for example. He is funny and likes to kill for fun. Ih he were serious all the time i wouldn't like it but the guy is full of life and happiness like a kid in a candy store. He is a different type of Cliche so i can give it a pass
None of the notable regulars on DSOD (like Noh) really 'left' for Arc-V. They had DSOD as their main priority as soon as their work on Zexal was over, and did some Arc-V work to help out occasionally. But a huge portion of existing staff up and leaving in the middle of the show was never the case.
The in-house guys that were mainly on Arc-V from the start (like Ebina) had DSOD as their 2nd priority and were invited to do a little little key animation, but again, didn't sacrifice their job on Arc-V for that.
It's going to be like 117. Full of QUALITY but with a few moments making it worth it.
The lack of Synchro Reiji definitely shows that the Synchro Dimension was rewritten
What's happening with subtitles as of late? Last I checked monosubs is usually late, but never this late. Then PoS subs are riddled with shitty grammar and incorrect translations, but I can at least get by with what little jap speak I understand and yugimons to still enjoy the series.
They weren't aiming for Vector. I can't even compare him to other Yugioh villains. Yuri is a hyped up character who scares other villains with just the thought of him. We haven't really gotten someone like that before. Sadly he's been handled like shit and has a bland backstory that sets up him becoming good.
I liked Dualism way more for the visuals than the actual song. The vocals were so mediocre. Before Yuuki Aoi fans get mad at me, I like her as a seiyuu, just not as a singer.
Still better than Light of Nope, though
I like her even as a singer. Her Symphogear songs are alright. It's the other chick I dislike.
And that's partially what I meant, the visuals are a big part of an opening to me.
>Help! Our budget ran out but we're only 1/2 way through mixing the song!
>FUCK IT! Just release it anyway. These fujos will buy anything YGO and the burgers will steal it anyways
>Yuri is a hyped up character who scares other villains with just the thought of him.
And they're still trying to push this shit by having Leo freak out about him despite him having done fuck all.
Since this is their fist (somewhat) big job I'm hoping whatever label or producer is behind these guys put some effort into making a good tune to mask these guys obvious lack of talent. Then we maybe have a chance of getting something ok.
I hope at least the visuals are better than the current opening, if nothing else. I liked the visuals of the previous ones.
I'm still aroused by that episode in general.
Not only her expressions, but her voice tone too.
I hope Ruri in the next episode gives off a similar feel.
Just use some actually arranged video, than recordings of live performances and everything immediately looks much better.
For example if OP will sound like this:
I will be OK with that.
No one. This is a stupid meme from back when we didn't know shit about the dimensions and assumed everyone had a counterpart. And Shun was Reiji's.
By the time these arcs rolled around most people had already stopped looking for patterns in the clouds like that.
Next series is Build Fighters.
Supports older archetypes and has players play every mechanic.
Would you watch it?
Now that was a big disappointment. Bandai trying to replicate the first BF sucess without the same staff and clearly with people who did not understand why the first was a hit in the first place.
At least it gave me one of the most fappable characters in years. Despite her shit developement during the series, I will never be able to not love Fumina
Fumina actually developed backwards. The fact I actually liked her to begin with just made her devolving into nothing but a pretty face was just one of many things that rubbed how disappointing Try was in.
Not unlike Arc-V, really.
I think Try was far, far worse than Arc-V. Even at it's worst Arc-V can snuck in a few good moments,
Try was just escalating disappointment with each passing week. I know some people here are extremely sour towards Arc-V, but to me it never reached quite the point of disappointment Try reached. I can still find some enjoyment in watching Arc-V like with every YGO before it.
Thinking about Try just makes me sad and torn apart by the fact I liked the first BF, I liked the Try characters at the beginning (Fumina in the first 5 or so episodes was fucking great. And Sekai was bearable), but the show actively went out of it's way to shit everything. Arc-V is just clumsy and incompetent.
Sent the post too early because I'm sleepy.
Arc-V is just clumsy and incompetent, it feels like they know what they want to do but can't do execution for shit.
Try was an empty travesty of everything that made Build Fighters great. And Arc-V never really became that for Yu-Gi-Oh. It's a whole other level of disappointment.
>just tried that and it was shit
Miami Championship, Friendship Cup and Academia survival duel are shit tier anyway.
You have to admit that Standard was comfy as fuck the only thing that fucked this series is the egao my villain to death and dimension hopping faggotry.
Oh yeah, I absolutely agree. While Arc-V's flashes of brilliance during the sloggy and shitty parts are actually satisfying, even Try's good moments are just disappointing in their own way like Minato proving he would've been a far better main cast member literally every time he shows up to the point where Yuuma is literally portrayed as the antagonist during Minato's episode. It's really something else.
Next series is arc-vi. We get Yuya's and Yuzu's daugther.
How would you feel?
I know who she is but she doesn't really go with the post she was in. A sequel to Arc-V would break even more records for low viewership and the writing for Arc-V is already bad enough. It doesn't need more time. The next series is going back to basics with no ties to previous series. Probably will only have Ritual, Fusion and the new summoning method too.
there's a penis in there somewhere
If his D-Wheel somehow gets rebuilt, do you think he'll finally get those added missiles like he originally planned?
He's going to get it modified so the D-wheel can fly by a giant robot made from the 3 most painful points in his life. Then our boy Yugo is going go Syper Saiyan Gold in across the four dimensions as he Delta Accel Synchro Summon with the 3 other dragons.
Believe it or not,it's been confirmed that Professor Chronos is a straight man.
The person who usually uploades the raws has been having problems encoding HD Raws for the past week, which means no HD Raws anytime soon. Mono currently is working on the 480p ones.
I admit it, I love Serena a lot, and her Luna-Lights are pretty much the best ones for my tastes.
The Dancers are pretty much the best looking ones, a Belly-Dancer Cat, a Lewd-Brown-Skin Phanter, and the Lewd-Legs&Outfit Lio.
>I can't even find the raw version for episode 123.
It counts as RAW unless you read Chinese
123 Script here you can follow along with:
Is this metagaming?
I took a break during the time EP106 aired, so I'm sure someone already made this but I didn't want to have to /r/ it, so here.
ALL Ruri v. ALL Yuus Battle Royale when?
I can already hear the "He's alone, just like I was, so I'll be his friend."
Just give Yuya two Duel Disks and let him Mind Shuffle.
So it's confirmed. Rin is the best Ruri.
Poly, Power Bond, Dark Fusion, Future Fusion, Super Poly, you name it.
I'm still not convinced Reiji is the odd Akaba out with Leo & Himika secretly working together and Reira's brainwashing has made him a Manchurian candidate-sleeper agent with a trigger phrase.

you have no idea what release crush card was like do you. We're never going back to that level of rarity for a staple. Not to mention viruses aren't even that good anymore, especially that one.
Cannot be Special Summoned.
1. If this card is Normal Summoned or flipped face-up: You can target 1 face-up monster on the field; Treat that monster as a Spirit monster, and it is returned to the hand during the End Phase.
2. Once per turn, during the End Phase, if this card was Normal Summoned or flipped face-up this turn: Return it to the hand.

Will the XYZ Resistance ever return? Although now that i think about it Yuya already turned half Academia in allies so maybe there won't be any need for them to appear after all.
If Grell Sutcliff from 'Black Butler' was a character in GX in what dorm would he be?
When this is all over, they better adopt the candy boy.
After watching Shun Vs Ruri i can tell Shun was always a asshole even before the War. Maybe living with Shun was literal hell for Ruri until she met Yuto.
>turn opponent's monsters into spirits
>Legacy of Yata-Garasu to draw 2
oh shit secret tech
A Yuzu is japanese a fruit similar to an orange
He is dead now so it will never happened just like with Yuri x Dennis
So I'm catching up on my yu gi oh watching, and I saw these Thorn prisoner cards today. They kind of look like creatures Bakura or Marik would use. Which made me wonder, what modern cards could you see characters from the original series use in there decks? Could also be cards from booster packs if you feel like discussing this.
Motherfucker, does this look pink to you? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yuzu
Is it just me or would the whole super polymerization reveal would have worked better if Yuri was against Shun and Sora?
>They both would have one their many ace's which would be Dark types thinking they have Yuri on the ropes, then all of a sudden he uses it to bring out Starve Venom.
Is it just me or did it seem pointless that Dennis carded himself for the sake of rushed drama after flat out seeing how Academia is at this point very easy to make a Heel-Face turn in an instant after one damn duel?
Okay, about to download Gook subs.
Is there at least a translated script out yet? If not, when can we expect RAWs? I feel I know enough "anime Japanese" that I can watch it but I don't want to be REKT if the RAW is coming out later today and subs tomorrow.
I liked it, but it would've been nice to hear or see some more concrete reason for him to stick with Academia for so long instead of just running off at the first sight of entame unlike pretty much everyone else.
Not saying Yuuri, but I'm saying Yuuri-
Him getting carded by Yuuri would have probably been better, plus that would have been more for Dennis character for trying to redeem himself rather carding himself (which in my opinion gives too much of a cowards impression of running away).
Its obvious that Yuri will be the one to kill Jack. Then Yuya will get to duel him and turn him an ally
Pardon my fujo, but I was thinking more along the lines of Dennis not wanting to leave Academia because of Yuuri. Not wanting to leave or turn against someone would be good enough reason to stick with Academia.
Personally I think the way he carded himself fits his character very well. He was always stuck between entertainment and Academia and thus ultimately couldn't choose either of them. I just wish that his death would've had a bit more impact. Maybe someone other than narrator-Asuka will mention it one day.
What would be funny if they had Yuri vs Yuya duel while both have their dragons out:
Jack invades activating a penalty while summoning his dragon
>Jack: Do you know who I am? I'm Jack Atlas
>Yuri: I don't care. But now I activate Super Polymerization combining by Starve Venom and your Red Deamon's dragon to form ??? Now I attack you. *Jack's LP is 0*
>Jack: Sakaki Yuya, remember to EGAO *Jack is carded*
>I just wish that his death would've had a bit more impact. Maybe someone other than narrator-Asuka will mention it one day.
The reason why it never did fit was basically because he had very little interaction with the team and his reveal as a traitor really didn't leave much impact. You'd think Reiji giving him a shit ton of pendulum's in comparison with his other Lancers knowing he was a spy would end up biting them in their asses if Fusion ever invaded but that became a wasted opportunity. He also sad he felt bad for betraying Shun as well when even the latter flat out suspected/knew him about from the started and ended up pissing him off after their second duel revealing he was involved with Ruri's kidnapping and green-lit an invasion by choice.
What are the chances of seeing all Ruris and Yus as parents in the end?
Yeah, I know how irrelevant he was in the grand scheme of things, but a Dennisfag can always dream, you know...
Seriously. People need to remember what they're watching. This is Yugioh. You aren't getting kids from the protags. 5Ds is the only series with a time skip and there are no couples in it. The Yus and Ruris barely interact in series anyway aside from Yuya and Yuzu.
I can't believe based Yuri almost died to a literal who. Oh well at least it wasn't his real deck
There's nothing wrong with that, it's just incredibly sad that the writers are now rushing as much as they go along after they finally realized(or at least I hope) how much they fucked up. The BB arc and it's poor ratings in general was a guaranteed result of all of that.
>The Yus and Ruris barely interact in series anyway aside from Yuya and Yuzu.
The funny thing is, Yuzu was pretty much the only bracelet girl that actually had more onscreen interaction with the other Yu's compared to her counterparts(not counting flashbacks). Her over interactions with Yuri could have probably been used as more of trying to get to know him or understand before she finds out how messed up he is but instead the writers used bracelet-kun for him without trying to make any limitations leading to this rushed including of Yuri and restraint for Yuzu.
Yuto's deck must be pretty strong if it can beat both Ruri and Serena who are power up. If it wasn't for Ruri coming back for a bit Shun would have lost
>If it wasn't for Ruri coming back for a bit Shun would have lost
That itself seemed like nothing more than an excuse for Shun to win after constantly getting beat/injured only to have him passed out. It probably would have been best if Brainwashed!Ruri did win after ranting on about her wanting her own independence, tries to proceed in carding him only then the real Ruri finally regain her consciousness.
