ENJOY IT NOW!
When it comes to what girls like, Arc V has all the main 4 boys personalities, thus any lady can chose:
Yuya is fun, interesting to be around and kind-hearted. He can entertain you for hours.
Yuto is dark, mysterious and has a cool deep voice that would make any girl swoon.
Yugo is short-tempered, goofy and a bit of a jerk - but with a heart of gold.
Yuri is evil, sadistic and likes to mind rape you anytime.
>cant post any
Anon, step up your game.
Just finished this stitch from the new OP. Took 88 frame captures to get everyone. Enjoy,
>probably smells like motor oil due to being from Synchro
Anon, that's a plus
No, like, I tried but I really can't. I guess my net is kinda bad right now. But... damnnnnnnn. You got yourself a fine image there
Damnnnn... She cute
ENJOY IT NOW
According to TV Tokyo:
Sunday Oct. 9 17:30 Play Clowning King ARC-V
Game king ARC-V "sun that the devil was born"
Yugoslavia which appeared before Yuri who is going to form soryo into a card challenges Yuri to deyueru! Two people reel fierce battle, and spread…
Yuya should have had his sanity and sense of self slipping all throughout the show as a constant build-up to Zarc's appearance, rather than only have Berserk appear once in a blue moon. We should have had more moments like pic related where more and more of hitotsu ni comes out over time until the climax.
>Sam and Gallager are there
We're never going to find out what that last message was, are we?
At least we get to see his EGAO until the series ends.
Also I just noticed that they put FUCKING SAM in full frame on the right edge corner. THIS IS AN OUTREIJI.
Fuck you niggas where's Captain Solo and BB?
>tfw Fusion arc ends next episode and that's why we got Solo and BB as the filler for Fusion and Tyler sisters and Kaito as filler for Xyz
It looked like Heartland, but you're right. Those floating buildings means it might not be Heartland. Makes me think that Heartland was the core of the original dimension and that's why edgy dragons are associated with Xyz and why Leo invaded only the Xyz Dimension.
maybe something about "leading the world to destruction" but who knows
That guy who won the Youth tournament. He plays Prophecies.
He was about to get killed by Obelisk Forces until Yugo bailed him out. He then ran away like a bitch and was never seen again.
Well at least they didn't forget Reiji this time. Hope he's dueling in the upcoming summaries. After this next episode and the summaries I think we'll finally know where this show is going.
So, I can understand why Zarc is the same VA for Yuya/Yuri but having someone who voiced Grace Tyler instead of the one that voiced Yuzu/Serena confuses me.
Either it's because:
>budget reasons, her Va was busy at the time,
>the staff secretly ship Grace and Yuya(especially with back at Twitter her VA saying Grace have became a slave to EGAO),
>they are trying something new
>the same thing as always the writers being lazy as well with missing another opportunity.
We get a QUALITY episode like this once every 50 ono episodes
get the fuck out of my thread before I card you like I did the rest
I wanna go to the timeline where Arc-V didn't get its pacing fucked by a year extension, have its characters sidelined for nostalgia shilling, and have its best writer leave after Yuzu/Masumi II.
The last three summaries have been useless. The first batch had Dennis V Kaito and the Captain Solo garbage. The second batch had the BB shit. This third batch hasn't really done much for the plot either aside from the next episode.
>pacing fucked by a year extension
Then why is Synchro unnecessarily a long drag while Xyz is a short shitfest? Just cut Synchro short and extend Xyz in the hopes that even if they have shitty writing at least they have good pacing.
She will likely take on an appearance of an older Yuzu.
Now that I think about it, the magician waifus might actually be how Ray/a might have looked like when she was younger.
>Tuning is her kid self, Noble is her older self, and Creation is her fully grown up self.
Though Zarc is probably going to look like the messed up fusion of Banana and Tomato given he likely has blue hair if Destruction Magician is any indicator of his original appearance.
Watch it and despair
>Back when you actually thought that Yuya and Yugo were going to be forced into a fight with each other by the will of their dragons
http://www.pixiv.net/member_illust.php?mode=medium&illust_id=54860020 http://www.pixiv.net/member_illust.php?mode=medium&illust_id=54105056 Use https://saucenao.com from now on.
Because they didn't plan for having an extra year and then fucked up the time management along the way. Ono running off to do Symphogear for a season during synchro's start probably didn't help either
It wasn't even that long ago and I'm already feeling nostalgic for the episodes from Burn to the end of Hanate.
I want to go back
Glorious cow tits. More big Ruri Ruris please.
anyone fancy doing an /a/ sings for one of the ops/eds since we're in the final stretch?
>Light a shit in lead
>Speaking and Trump Card not in lead
It really is.
Challenge the Game just felt a lot more. Maybe because the past characters in it were mostly one-shots and just seeing them, even if the duels weren't that great, felt like the staff really cared and when I look at the cast in the Arc-V shot, I just think of the show it was
Also, it was better because it looks like everybody showed up to see Yuma and Astral's duel where here it's "oh look it's Yuya being himself again"
and a bonus. I like how the clouds in the background form (not so subtle) angel wings over Rin.
Post anime cards komoney will never give you
>all summoning methods and their Yuyas are shown
>ritual is nowhere to be seen and the 2 ritual players are both irrelevant and or dead.
Just a reminder that ritualfags spent 2 years shitposting for nothing.
He was written INTO the story at some point?
I'm fully convinced they changed Ruri's hair colour, of course there's the eye --> hair pattern, but in op1 the four cards that have a silhouette of yuya on are the colour of Rin/Yuzu and serena's hair + a yellow one it's the same with the colour of the lollies in the first ed that Yuya's teasing the fat kid with.
Sora finally got to be in an OP again.
I'm trying to figure out what Leo is talking about in the preview.
From the shots we saw, he seems to be in the original dimension when he was younger. But then this begs the question, how the hell did he do that? Is he from the original dimension?
>There was once a time where Sora was actually a main character
>There used to be debates over whether Shun or Sawatari should stay on the main character page on the YGO wikia
>All of them got fucked anyway
You know what's a good idea right now?
Sitting back, relax
And listen to Wonder Wings. Isn't Wonder Wings great? Man this feels like a last opening even if it's not as intense
Something about opening Pandora's Box.
Also apparent new trivia: Hazy Flame Sphynx's resting body temperature is ~85.46 °F
I hate this song. I will always hate this song.
There is no point in defending it either since Challenge The Game is so fucking good that it both accentuates it and makes up for it.
I wonder how often they frequented that bar since then.
Did you know you can be a rival who actually does things on a consistent basis and even gets to duel?
Oh right, every previous series did it.
I wish Sora got to go to Xyz. Would have really spiced up the Lancers interactions with the natives.
He didn't have to do things.
Just the effort was enough
So, according to the preview, as Yugo and Yuri summon their dragons and Leo is explaining the plot, Yuya is going berserk. I have a feeling Leo is going to turn to the screen only to see a broken cage and Kaito/Edo unconscious on the floor.
As a side note, does anybody know why OED is showed instead of OEPD?
For a single non-panning group shot, CtG fit in nearly every single character in the series to include 1st season single-episode filler charters like Dog-chan and even the baby of Anna's relative who wasn't even born yet at the time.
That's an accomplishment.
Also I'm surprised that Astral ended up fixing reality for everyone, but still left Tron in his child form with a galaxy for half a face (and black hole for an eye).
That's because Astral made a reality Yuma wanted. Yuma only knew Tron when he had that face, so when he imagines the Arclights he thinks of him with a galaxy face and a tiny body.
Thanks, based anon.
guise, where can I watch ep 125?
not up on kissanime and gogoanime is lacking subs
>SOKKO MAHOU CHOU GISHIKI HATSUDO
>Writers realize they have no premise for Yugo and Yuya to fight eachother
>Uh...UHHHHHHHHHHHHH... FUCK IT! CROWS COMING BACK, LET'S JUST MAKE HIM THE RIVAL FOR THIS SEASON!
I'm mad but I'm also glad they didn't make Yugo just fusion fodder for Yuya with no character building.
>tfw the demon duelist who split the world into 4 dimensions isn't Yuma due to rewriting all of history with the Numeron Code
>Kaiba won't come back as the founder of Academia, and the inventor of the carding process after witnessing Kisara being turned into a card 5000 years ago.
feels bad man. I'm so over arc-v at this point that I just want it to turn into OG Yugioh or Zexal III. Why did they have to waste 70 episodes copying WRGP, the worst part of 5D's.
>Yuya gets M A D
>Professor did nothing wrong preview
I think by working on Real Solid Vision, Leo opened "Pandora's Box" and allowed Zarc or Ray to affect the world with card game magic
He survived the dimension split because Zarc or Ray needs him to bring Real Solid Vision into the next world
Seeing Joeri kick Sora's ass was the main reason why i wanted to see this episode. Best Yu by far
Why did things have to go so wrong for our Candu Boy? I just want him to get adopted by Yuzu/Yuya's family and live with his BFF and disciple.
Well, aside opinionated matters on whether the song itself is good or not. It feels largely unfitting for both the series and especially for the kind of arc its used during, particularly when placed in the context of the kinds of music used for all of zexal's prior ops. Additionally, being coupled with Challenge the Game accentuates the issue and makes it generally very offputting since the ED matches up so perfectly with both the series and the barian arc and ultimately does a great job of giving a sort of wistful, triumphant sendoff to the Zexal era (arguably even if the person viewing the show doesn't like the show itself).
Basically, WW just doesn't feel congruent and thus it gets more backlash for it, on top of not generally being everyone's cup of tea as far as songs go.
It looks like we're heading over to King Kai's planet soon.
You realize of course this was meant for kids right? Complaints about the plot not going as dark as people though is about as dumb as the people who got mad about Pokemon X/Y having Ash loose again.
>BLACK YUYA ARC
You have to admit, it's funny to say that Yuya won the Pokémon League.
That's okay Anonymous. It can be our little secret.
>Yuya beats Kingu and Denies Ash his Master Quest yet again.
What a time to be involved in Yu-Gi-Oh again.
Why? It's really not that bad. I would rank it near the bottom of the YGO shows but it's overall quality is still OK. Yeah it could've been better but it's not complete garbage like everyone says.
dont be, you knew what this show was walking into it, to be contrary now is mere sophistry
Duel Masters may be a comedy show that had an episode in which the main character gets regressed into being a literal baby but the newest OP was better than Arc-V's:
I wasn't impling they wanted it to. I'm just saying it wasn't ever going to have a reveal like that. That's expecting far to much from the hack writers responsible for Synchro.
The staff complained that Ash lost again. Not everyone is on board with it and it's a legit complaint. Same for this show turning to shit. No one is asking for it to go super dark. But with how fucked up things are now with 4 characters brainwashed you'd expect it to look a little bleak. Instead the OP is full of smile world shit and Yuya's rage resulted in a hole in a wall and nothing else. Serena and Ruri got up like nothing happened and ran off. Shun for some inexplicit reason is dying yet Ruri and Serena got hit full blast by a beam of blue flames and didn't even get their clothes damaged. This show is retarded.
>Yuya's rage resulted in a hole in a wall and nothing else.
There was nothing to indicate it was going past that. Next episode skips to Yuri and Yugo and this is just the reveal of the monster. Odd-Eyes Rebellion's reveal was just as underwhelming despite the hype behind it.
>This show is retarded
Did I say it wasn't? I'm just saying don't fucking expect some crazy ass reveal because this show has done nothing to warrant that expectation compared to any other series build up.
>not liking HITOTSU-NII-SAMA
Plus Z-Arc was an actual thing and is the actual name of the character.
Am I the only one who really liked the OP? I mean, it's clear that both the OP and ED didn't have much of a budget behind them, but watching the OP for me was hype as fuck. I think it's easily in the top half for me.
The visuals were wonderful, but I couldn't get into the song at all unfortunately. After the wonderful BREAKDOWN bit at the start, I just found myself growing increasingly unhappy with it
I still think that won't be the name. The writers aren't THIS fucking stupid.
Of course, now I'm delusional one but I really wanted to hope that this show wasn't a complete utter garbage. Guess my HOPUs are best invested in ZEXAL:
ズァーク - Zarc
>I don't. I like 5Ds a lot and that series outright kills itself halfway in.
Every YGO series kills itself at some point.
YGO has to be the most consistent franchise in which every series is very inconsistent. The key is which one you are okay with. It's why DM is still the most popular one because it's only low points are the filler arcs
>not getting the name symbolism
Z-ARC has z in it, which represents the end. Destruction can also be compared to an arc, where after a certain point in cannot continue and can only regress.
Ray-A has an a, which shows beginnings. A ray is constant and never ending, like creation.
Do I want to know what's going on? Is this from the deviantART dungeons?
The manly protagonist of Duel Masters.
>Demon duelist who leads the world to destruction
OH GEE I WONDER WHY PEOPLE MIGHT THINK YUUYA REPRESENTS DESTRUCTION
ITS A GODDAMN MYSTERY I TELL YOU
Yuya is not a god and the magicians thing hasn't even been used as symbolism for anything.
Even the straightfoward fan nickname Darkness was better. And come on, the franchise has been using that as symbolism for ages.
Well those two are the reverse of 5Ds and Arc-V
GX is shit for like half its series before getting good and Zexal takes a very very long time to actually start resembling something decent
>gold mine for reaction images
Well he's made up of four fuckbois so it's not like it's too surprising.
Aigami looks like a fuccboi and look at what he became.
Well hello there instant erection material.
The only silver lining I see from this is that the staff putting their actual effort into the next series, while Arc-V has been relegated to just existing for the sake of keeping the Sunday evening timeslot.
Holy shit. I was really looking foward to the new OP/ED but after reading the comments here i thought they would be utter shit. But the OP is actually pretty fucking good. The song is catchy as hell and even if 90% of the OP are stills, they were pretty good. This OP is probably my favourite one with Hanate in second place. For a newbie band this song was actually good. I'm pleasantly surprised
For all we know the silhouette appearance will just be his base form so the rest of the cast can go "Oh wow he really dos look like Yuya/Yuto/Yugo/Yuri" and he'll magic the hell up for the finale.
By menacing, you mean ways to turn dicks into diamonds, right?
>shit tons of money from DSOD promotion and other 20th anniversary shit
>no planned movies
>Zexal staff completely unoccupied
They've got everything they need to make the next YGO series well produced.
It was funny how he wasn't taking Sora seriously in the slightest. He was just playing with him. He even used the Ancient Gear Deck
of which the yuus are not
So i guess Joeri will use his normal deck against Yugo right?
no, no its ok. Sora was made for rough handling
He's had it worse, like when a synchro fusionist cyborg punched him in the face at high speed.
So who will be the one to make Yuri give a fuck when dueling? Because so far everyone is just a joke for him. I think its way too soon for Yugo to die so i guess someone will save Yugo before getting nom. Any ideas???
Damn he got rekt hard. But i wanted to see him lose against Yuri since the moment they first saw each other.
No I don't think so.
In fact, I kind of don't expect too much from commercials so it tends to take something really fucking stupid to actually make me turn sour on them. Unfortunately, the YGO franchise is very much known for doing that
>don't bother to fix this shit
They're really down to the last of their budget. I hope these last episodes don't look like complete ass.
I found it funny how the new OP of Jojo was full of stills too with reused animation. Maybe that will be the new style of OP's now?
Maybe I missed or forgot an explanation somewhere, but are the parasites maintained by Solid Vision or are they actual, regularly material organisms? If it's the former, couldn't they just shut off the Solid Vision in order to save the Ruris?
Yuto is actually pretty fucking badass. Second best Yu right here
It'd be sweet if they alternate a new picture every episode. Also where is this?
Eyes > Mirai Iro = Challenge the GAME > Endless Dream > Dashing Pendulum
I will say the mini-tag duel featured in the final GX ED makes it visually the most interesting one in the entire franchise.
Also is Yuya never going to obtain his own Kuribo?
The issue was never lack of money, just a lack of willingness to spend money. Konami prolly could've funded this show a hundred times over if it actually cared at any point. But at the end of the day, all that matters is that the cards are selling. As long as they do, ygo will always be cheap as shit.
Challenge the Game is first. No explanation needed.
I would say Endless Dream is next because it had some decent animation and the song/lyrics are very relevant to the theme of the last season. I also like how creative the duel sequence was.
Then I would say EYES because the song/lyrics fit the tone of the MW and the visuals also set up the important characters in the arc. I also like the symbolism of the hourglass in the back to show Atem's time in this world is running out and the foreshadow of Yugi vs Atem at the very end.
Future Colors is next. While it is a glorified slideshow and has that retarded Aki x Yusei moment at the end, the song/lyrics are relevant to the theme of the final arc with taking hold of your own future and making it bright.
While not bad, Dashing Pendulum is last because again it's a glorified slideshow and way too much shipping fuel. I also don't like how other characters are left out. The song/lyrics are ok because the theme of this show is still EGAO but the placement is horrible. It doesn't make sense to be placed in this arc with how things are turning out right now. It should've been an earlier ED.
Zexal was liked. You put more money into things that are liked. This show literally went with slideshows for the final opening and ending. They're just phoning it in at this point. Arc-V obviously had a vision in mind but they were terrible at executing it.
No movie produced simultaneously during its run for starters, and what >>148049670 said in that Konami pretty much never seems to care or that shilling prioritizes almost everything else to the point that it can and has been a detriment.
Even if Konami wasn't a miser, factors like who/which studios are available to work on Yugioh (since it relies a lot on outsourcing) is also a huge factor. With how the number of shows per season has risen over the years, it's not that hard for (actually good/decent) animators to find work that isn't tied to extra hectic deadlines that would come from weekly shounen anime. Timing and networking also matter a lot for being able to rope in decent talent.
I don't like the visuals. Even Wonder Wings reflected the current state of things better, both being a "let's show all the characters" final opening.
The music is also not good but I'm a sucker for the style even when it's bad. I like the chorus part a lot, it's catchy.
>Future Colors is next. While it is a glorified slideshow and has that retarded Aki x Yusei moment at the end, the song/lyrics are relevant to the theme of the final arc with taking hold of your own future and making it bright.
Would you feel the same way about it if the last episodes had taken a different resolution?
It will probably be romanized as Z-ARC and be the codename Leo gave, since it has shown up as part of the ID of Yuri in Leo's files Reiji sees in his flashbacks.
Same for RAY-A.
ZeXal's budgetary cuts showed up in other places, though. The writing was uninspired or utterly incomprehensible in MANY places, and the animation was garbage a lot of the time, especially when it came to CGI (all of the explosions for ZeXal, ZeXal II especially, are the exact same explosion copy/pasted repeatedly and scaled around).
ZeXal maintained its consistency because it cut in places that wouldn't sacrifice what little good it had going for it. It was well-liked because it knew what it was and stayed consistent through to the end.
I love how this opening just shows us how little villains this show has. Wonder Wings had a whole section with the Barians and their aces. Kaito and Mizael facing off, Don Thousand and the moon. This opening showed us still shots of the characters and then Yuya entame. I didn't think I'd be as disappointed as I was.
The OP theme itself is great until the vocals kick in, as others have said which sounds not just overtly abrasive but amateurish as well (i.e. lacking in intonation control). Things get better during the chorus section but it's not a large part of the OP.
Visuals look great (except QUALITY UTE), but are lacking in 2D animation especially compared with earlier OPs (1-3).
Overall, it isn't terrible (overreactions notwithstanding) However, it's not that good either given what we know the series and franchise writ large is capable of.
I think most problems I have with the past two openings would be lessened if they showed more the monsters along the important characters. They did it right until Hanate, but then every opening is just shots of the characters, new monsters, and Smile World.
It's weird we don't see the Dragons in this opening.
this is probably what Leo's sob story will look like
>was lonely and wanted friends
>found the world was split into 4 dimensions and wondered why
>figured if he could make the 4 dimensions into the original world again he can get fame and friends
An anon posted it a couple threads ago
Shame Terrortop has a good chance of being hit at some point
Sounds interesting. Got any examples?
So, what are you last hopes for Raging Tempest? i'm hoping Dag Daggerman will be a good Performapal for once and Performage Trapeze Force Witch is the final fusion card. Crystrons are obviously taking the last synchro slots and now that the last cardian is printed there's no reason to care about synchro slots at all now.
After listening to the OP more I don't think it's that bad. It would actually be a pretty good first OP to introduce us into the show. The song is definitely catchy but fuck it just feels jarring where it's placed. Animation is lacking too and way too much EGAO. I still can't fathom how they shilled Raging Dragon while Yuya as in Berserk Mode and he's all menacing and then in the OP he's fucking flying with smile world all over the place. Who's fucking brilliant idea was that?
Could care less about Raging Tempest the set has been a huge disappointment to me. Only the Zodiac stuff seems good but I don't really care for it. I'm more interested in Maximum Crisis now.
I'm hoping for support for D/D/Ds.
While the Jojo op was a lot of still it had a lot better direction and creativity than the op for Arc-V. Pendulum Beat is mostly just kind bland visually. Doesn't feel like the last one in this series.
