Yuri and Yugo on ice.
You vastly overestimate Konami's ability to do anything smart ever. Plus as long as they sell packs, they have even less reason to care, which the cards do no matter how bad the show gets.
The Zexal era was the 2nd biggest era in terms of card profits for Konami. Lord of the Tachyon Galaxy remains the best selling pack in history. Konami will gladly approve a Zexal III or something very similar to rope in the same audience that watched Zexal.
No, they'll just approve whatever because the cards sell regardless of how good the anime is. And you do know why LTGY sold as well as it did, right? I'll give you a hint and it's not related to Zexal at all.
Just have either of these two as your new protag.
>Spellbook of Judgement
M8 there's a fucking reason LTGY sold as well as it did and it's not the anime. It's one of the most busted sets in the history of the game.
Well my point still stands then. If they approve whatever then they won't mind NAS saying "yeah we want to make a series using the Zexal/DM formula because that worked out for us well twice already"
No, the point is that they could very well just do whatever again because Konami isn't going to give a shit and whatever point the nips are trying to prove is moot because they're all making money in the end because the cards will still sell. Nips want to prove a point? They should stop buying packs, but they won't.
>Konami will gladly approve a Zexal III or something very similar to rope in the same audience that watched Zexal.
They'll approve whatever and NAS will come up with whatever they feel like regardless of what people on nico rate the show because the cards are still selling, and that's what matters in the end.
>They should stop buying packs
They don't care about the cards. They care about the anime. The whole point of giving Arc-V low ratings is because they HATE Ono and Kamishiro and Arc-V. They don't want to see that shit ever again. NAS has almost surely noticed the bad ratings and negative reception Arc-V is getting. It's putting a bad reputation on the YGO brand name. They'll just make the next show similar to Zexal/DM and Konami will make cards tailored to that show. They don't really have much control over the anime as compared to Shueisha/NAS.
>They don't care about the cards, they about the anime.
It's actually more of the opposite. Take Arc-V as an example. Their packs still sell enough to get on the top 3 selling list, despite the anime turning to shit.
They all are to some extent, but the last one takes the fucking take.
>They'll probably go back to 5D's style for the next since that one had a strong start compared to Zexal and Arc-V.
Arc-V sure, but Zexal no. Someone hasn't been doing their research.
Episode 131: 常闇に射す光 - Tokoyami ni Sasu Hikari
(The Light Shining in Eternal Darkness)
As Ray’s revival approaches, Reira tries to convey her feelings. He stands in Reiji’s way! Reiji launches an attack with his D/D monsters, but to his surprise, Reira is able to overcome it with his strategy…
As Reiji hurries ahead, he launches an attack against Reira, who stood in his way. However, Reira is able to overcome it with his strategy. At the same time, Yugo and Yuri’s Duel finally reaches a conclusion…
C/C/C vs D/D/D confirmed then
What's going to be shilled? Also
>Reiji vs Reira
This has potential to be epic. But knowing Arc-V it will squander it like usual.
Don't mind me, I'm the only surviving cameo character in this show.
>Yugo not kill
>Sora not kill
>Edo and Kaito and the four girls are kill
What the fuck is happening tonight? How the fuck did Sora escape the carding? Why is this kid still alive?
No.... No! I won't allow Kaito to die yet. He still has to shill my waifu more.
They tricked me into thinking Reji was good at this game.
You take your shitty bait out of here.
Every neo is perfect.
AND THIS IS TO GO EVEN FIRTHER BEYOND
Except Dark Matter who is fucking fugly
inally it's time for Kaito to die.
>Crow shilled 9 synchros
>Kaito shilled 3 xyz
Why are black wings so loved?
Galaxy deserve more cards
So I found this old collage set of the all of the SHOKANs in my /a/rc-v folder (saved almost exactly a year and one week ago) and decided to update it up to the current episode.
Yuya's extra deck at the moment throughout all media
Beast Eyes Pendulum Dragon
Rune Eyes Pendulum Dragon
Odd Eyes Vortex Dragon
Brave Eyes Pendulum Dragon
Performapal Odd Eyes Metal Claw
Performapal Gatling Ghoul
Odd Eyes Meterorburst Dragon
Nirvana High Paladin
Odd Eyes Rebellion Dragon
Odd Eyes Absolute Dragon
Odd Eyes Raging Dragon
Arc-V continues to be the lowest rated anime of the season.
Card Game anime ratings:
Vanguard - 95.2%
Duel Masters - 90.6%
WIXOSS - 77.8%
ARC-V - 9.6%
So tomorrow both Kaito and Edo will die. Considering ep 130 title is Greedy Venom Dragon i guess that means based Yuri killed them. Hugo dead soon.
Can 130 get us a 9th spot? With a possible carded Edo/Kaito and no more Ruris I think it's possible. I believe in based Ono!
New Top 10:
1. ARC-V 122 - 6.1%
2. BTOOOM 6 - 7.6%
3. ARC-V 121 - 8.8%
4. ARC-V 129 - 9.6% <---- NEW
5. ARC-V 118 - 10.3%
6. ARC-V 127 - 11.8%
7. ARC-V 19 - 13.6%
8. ARC-V 120 - 13.8%
9. ARC-V 123 - 14.6%
10. Bloodivores 1 - 15.6%
Vanguard can make its fans happy unlike Arc-V. The nips don't really have high standards. Even for most of Synchro Arc-V was getting good ratings in the 80s and sometimes 90s. It doesn't take much to make them happy. But Arc-V found a way to do the exact opposite.
Hey guys! Don't be a negative Nancy. Arc-V is still great!
Watch my 131 cast list analysis and get hyped for tonight's episode!
So does he consider the Ruris his sisters now?
Does this make him and Shun half-brothers?
How come zexal Kaito never got one of these?
Because Rank-Up Magic in Zexal was a Barian and Astral World thing. Random people couldn't have them. The Arclights only had some because they made them. Kaito rarely Xyz summoned anyway.
Look at this happy man, would you deny him his opportunity?
Synchro was slow as shit for 20 eps, but aside the zarc shit in 92, the second half more than made up for it with Roger's wild ride. Also, the first half at least had fun parts like ENJOY and some decent worldbuilding.
Yugo/Serena was fun.
Yuya/Bees and HITOTSU NI/Crow was fun, the Synchro rebellion was fun, Tsukikage/Sora vs obelisk force was fun.
Watching Reira develop was cool, even if the duel vs security was eh
Crow/Shun was fun as a duel
Sora/Tsukikage vs Obelisk Force was fun
And the entire climax was good.
It was a solid 25 eps aside 92
I have to ask, I see these threads up every day and every time I come here I see nothing but negativity. The show is shit, the fanbase hates it, so why the threads? Surely you guys aren't just here to have a constant rage circle jerk,right? What's keeping these threads on /a/? Tell me.
Don't care if it's Yuri or Yugo, but who will I put as my favorite Yu (Not counting Zarc.) if Yugo kills and cards Kaito?
He lost all his numbers early on except 62 which he used once. He barely used Paladynamo and Galaxion. Kaito mostly sat behind Galaxy-Eyes and went Neo against really strong opponents.
God damn he makes me so hard. So much raw talent in directing and storyboarding. Can anyone be more based?
These. Shame that's not realistic at this point in time, nor even in the future.
What if the story was adapted, redone, and retold in a different medium without being restricted by things like massive card shilling and being forced to fill weekly time-slots that drags down the plot? Would you partake in it?
Is that really so? these threads are kept alive by just one person? That's nuts.
>worst protagonist ever
>worst director ever
>shitty pendulum scales
Hey guys, let's give the FeMC an interesting rival and then write her out of the show for no reason, and also make the FeMC useless, but still use the FeMC's bracelet to kill the hype. That way, we can have the main rival do more stuff
>Oh you mean Reiji
No I mean Crow
Did Nico Nico always hate Arc-V?
Cause I loved Arc-V at the beginning but sometime in Synchro it just went to complete shit
Like do you guys realize we're on episode 125? Does it feel like we've done 125 episodes worth of stuff? Does the story really feel like it's progressed in any interresting ways?
Catchy song, great visuals. Every single character and many monsters show up to watch Yuma vs Astral. The ending celebrates the show as a whole and if you're a fan of any single character you can appreciate it. Compare it to something like Dashing Pendulum which is essentially false advertising.
Arc-V being sexist would imply it treats the male characters better. But they don't
>Zappa Gou announces a Shounen fighting manga with an MC and FeMC traveling the universe
>The manga has the FeMC gradually get stronger and become the final boss
>Her name is Zuzu
Would Konami sue?
>Yuya would basically be the only one smiling.
>Edo and Kaito dead
Not even all the monsters with salvation lore can save this show. Yuri you piece of overrated crap, seriously can't wait for somebody to erase that smug face, I just hope they do it, because if the last thing I see from him is going Hitotsu Ni and not seeing him again to see him getting what he deserved, I will make Konami WHEN YOU DIE
Nope. You can see the full ratings here. They were really good in the beginning and then plummeted near the end of Synchro because of 92 shenanigans. BB effectively killed any chance of redeeming the show's ratings.
>Being this butthurt over characters that heavily ruined ARC-V and shouldn't even be in this series in the first place dying
>customs didn't let the Yu-Gi-Oh! Goods enter into the country again
>another weekend without the new shits since Legendary Collection II and no Sneak Peek
I sometimes want to believe there are people who are preparing a massive bombshit for those fuckers, but whathever. Let's keep waiting...
>Hating best Yu
Calm down anon Yuya will put him on his place. Yuri is after all the final villain
>Wanting to kill the only villain that can even resemble a threat
Way to fix jack shit.
First of all, it's not Yuri vs both of them, Yugo is going to take one.
Second of all, death is too good for legacy memes. Only until their limbs are torn off on-camera and their throats slit will they be allowed to die.
But if you kill any of the Yus, wouldn't Zarc separate from the body and be revived for sure? Wait, that'd also fix the series...
No shit. Best character got raped by a screentime and character arc stealing manlet.
It's better than just overhype an overrated character just to do jackshit like carding mostly jobbers, a literal fanservice, and two ruined characters.
Meanwhile, Herr Doctor did a better job at villains and he was just for a sole arc.
Get your disgusting fruit out of me desk, Bananas are better anyway even if they are from a letdown arc
>Bananas are better anyway even if they are from a letdown arc
He got boring pretty fast. And its Ash levels of retarded
>Ash won a League
No, that was Yuya/Yuri/Zarc as well.
But seriously guys, Yuri is a failure as a villain and you should feel bad for even liking it.
The manga version is better and he is more like an antihero, THAT is the level of bad he maked this anime
When it comes to legacy characters from past Yugioh spin-offs into ARC-V, it's an all or nothing kind of deal. Leaving the 2 GX characters in will make people wonder where are ones for 5D's and ZEXAL and so on. In this case, I'd rather have no legacy characters, especially when they're alternate versions that only share the previous series version's name, face, and basic deck theming. Edo and Asuka barely doing anything or in Edo's case, most notable for throwing a tantrum and being another egao victim, didn't help for their characters and disappointed/pissed off GX fans who wanted to see them return.
Worst of all is that the legacy characters did ruin more than just that, they also ruined even more potential from the characters original to ARC-V. Just imagine if Edo's role as the final antagonist for the Xyz arc was done by the Tyler sisters, and Noro to some extent, instead. As for Asuka, you happen to know anyone else that was an Academia defector and was also known for rescuing Yuzu? Something that happened in a certain episode 83 that made 103 feel too much of the same?
Your post didn't explain how Edo or Asuka ruined Arc-V. You posted how they themselves were ruined. Edo barely appeared in Xyz. He mostly sat behind his desk seething. The Tyler Twins did more than him already. Giving them his screentime basically adds nothing to their characters. They in fact got more duels than him anyway even if one was off screen. Noro wasn't meant to be anything. He was always waiting for Edo or the Tylers.
So Sora is supposed to know where Yuzu is in Fusion and randomly save her? Sora is supposed to know where Yusho is hiding too and take Yuzu to him? Sora doesn't fit that role. Asuka doing that didn't ruin Arc-V.
It's fair because you get DMs with towers ability and a recurring DM from hand or grave OR a searchable Harpie feather duster.
You need to time Eternal Soul right. Activate it after you have a Navigate in grave so you can negate the TT or MST when your opponent activates it.
The most anticipated duel in the series has been shit so far with them just standing around screeching at each other. This duel was destined to be trash the moment it was just Zarc fodder instead of a personal engagement.
Yuzu was a damsel 20 episodes before Asuka showed up and is still a damsel long after Asuka died.
I summon Elemental Hero Neos. There's no way to win now, /a/rc-v.
I ACTIVATE MY TRAP CARD, WAR AND PEACE ON A TRADING CARD!
The problem is that the show spent a lot of its time dodging questions and focusing on literally whos rather than building anything substantial, whether it's in the plot or the main cast. Without a foundation or a solid springboard, it seems difficult, and the studio seems to have checked out on the show anyway.
Contact Fuse THIS
I thought the vocal angry gxfags were on 2ch, who are grumpy all the time anyway. And they're dwarfed in size by the more casual crowd on nico who tune in every week. I mean, while the score wasn't good for that episode, it was a slight improvement from the episodes before it.
I'm not blaming anything on gxfags, I'm asking why that anon thinks 'mad gxfags' gather in droves on nico specifically when nico is a much larger and more casual audience, you mong
Gladiator Beasts or Neo-Spacians? Either way, both pale in comparison to the best Contact Fusion.
I activate this and equip it to myself to even read what the hell written on that card with text for ants.
Not Arc-V but Kaiba ritual summoned too
Neo-Spacians, even if you were to scrap them completely and sack Neos himself with one or two Quickdraw synchron like monsters they'd still be shit because Neos and that monster go back to the deck, hendering your ability to draw something you actually need. Why'd they'd need a card like this
>Elemental Hero Neos Formu
>If you have a "Neos" monster on your field you can special summon this card from your hand,For a Fusion Summon, you can substitute this card for any 1 "Neos" fusion monster.
>Monsters fusion summoned through this card gain this effect; If this card leaves the field, you can special summon this cards fusion material from the deck.
Even with a card like that, the deck would not be playable in anyway
This Doesn't do nearly enough.
Elemental HERO Neo Neos
Name is always treated as Neos. If this card is summoned, you can special summon one neo spacian from hand, deck, or grave. A monster summoned using this card as material cannot be returned to the extra deck by its own effect.
If you control no monsters, you can special summon one HERO and one Neo spacian monster from your deck. But you cannot summon monsters from the extra, except for fusion monsters using a HERO or Neo spacian monster as a material for the rest of the turn.
I say make it be able to act as a neo spacian monster and it'd be a better monster for the deck because the neo--spacians themselves are too horrible to run outside of Grand Mole.
Why is Kaito the only legacy character to shill a new archetype? What was wrong with making new Galaxies?
It's not their fault Yuto is so deliciously cute.
That reminds me, are there any good anime/manga where a brother/sister pair share the same guy/girl together consensually?
>are there any good anime/manga where a brother/sister pair share the same guy/girl together consensually?
I want this pretty bad right now
Hansel and Gretel of Black Lagoon raped and tormented a guy to death while mutilating him. Other than that, I got nothing but siblings of the same gender banging someone of the opposite gender like Swing Out Sisters
More like Dead Guy.
EDO I WILL FUCKING RAPE YOUR MOUTH SHUT IF YOU DONT END THIS
Which is more >>>/fa/ General Edo or CEO Edo?
Friendly reminder that Yugo is straight and Rin is the most pure and loyal ruri.
Destiny HERO - Doomsday Guy (Doom is only already in use in the TCG)
Destiny HERO - Devastation Guy
Destiny HERO - Defiance Guy
Destiny HERO - Discord Guy
Destiny HERO - Death Guy
>It's implied Kaito used Ciphers before he made the switch to Photons.
Did someone called me?
19 or so non named numbers. I'm hoping 3 of them are Gagaga, Dododo and Zubaba like Gogogo got. No way does 20th anniversary 2nd wave not have new numbers in it. Anything Zexal related has at least 1 or 2 numbers in it.
What the fuck do you think he's doing,anon? He's getting fucked by Shun's penis while Ruri is trying to shove her penis in as well! They're trying to stretch his asshole out so it can fit more than one dick! DICK!
Edo was the last hope for ARC FAIL.
So they return the guy that beat Judai and replaced him as M.C, and made him lose to stupid ciggy dad and avoid Yuya losing to him due to asspull pendulum shenanigans.
And now he's suppose to job to gay ass Yuri girl love boy ? Do arc v staff even look at the ratings ?
His monsters glow like Kaito's, if course he's chunni.
I watched Zexal dumbass. Nothing implies Kaito used Ciphers before receiving Photons. The single monster we see before Photons is Daybreaker and even that monster looks like Photon monsters.
Kek. Edo is the biggest fraud in the history of the franchise. He's a fucking joke in every encarnation.
Kaito, on the other hand, is a very competent duelist. He never lost against his rival. But somehow the Banana wil kill him.
Tonight Kaito will die. I used to love him for killing the Gary Stu Shun but now you could even say he has surpassed him. Based Yuri or Yugo will get rid of him
Does Judai loving a hermaphrodite count?
The only other thing I can think of that might have pushed it that far was Alito's introductory episode, which was about love.
So will RAYji meet his Onee-chan RAY tonight
I'll have you find making a dude suck your dick only verifies how absolutely masculine you are, in that you were strong enough to make another dude take your dick in his mouth or his ass. It's the most manly thing you could possibly do.
I wonder what Himika would think about her husband's secret family that he never bothered to mention anything about to her?
Also, accurate portrayal of the next several episodes.
Fans always talk about how weird GX was, but don't mention how ZEXAL also had some crazy shit going on.
Remember when Shark played electric guitar for a Duel-Idol Band?
Zexal never pretended Anna was good either but her death has impact since she dies in a duel.
I mean you're right the Yuzu I cared about died two years ago, but still. If you're gonna have a shell of a character called Yuzu be around and be given lines then try sending her off well
That's because the more eccentric ideas were kept in one-off or SoL episodes (like comic world) without being shoved into the more important stuff and the climaxes. Not to the same extent, anyway.
>Asuka died like a bitch
Yeah, what a pointless character. All they had to do was let her duel Dennis but nah, Kaito shilling
And Kaito'll be dead soon anyways.
Dear god new series soon
So this pretty much confirms that D/D will never get a ritual right?
RIP those CaCs about the Quake King and the ritual contract
He did perfectly. He made everyone so invested in a show 1/3rd of the way through that he could basically call it quits and let the show coast to the finish line, which is what he did with 5D's, what he did with Symphogear, and what he's doing now.
He's a very strategically lazy man.
Still her duel skill and BM
I dunno man I'll take what I can fucking get from this.
It couldn't have been him that made Arc-V good. Must have been a guy who got the fuck out before Synchro
When are they going to print Phantom Knights cards?
I want muh Phantom Knights to be a viable archetype but the anime keeps teasing them then pulling the rug out and making it all about Rebellion Dragon again.
Soon, hopefully. The Spells are actually good (and will probably be buffed) and the Xyz might actually warrant running the traps. Or they could just make it a R3.
I doubt the OCG gives a shit about Dante and friends at this point, so saying BA is the reason they won't get any new support isn't a valid reason.
>relavent in the OCG
>thinking R3 will be relavent by the time we get it in the TCG
BA is old news, Zodiac Beasts will be the death of Terrortop, although limiting Rat would solve the problem (but Komoney has to shill those Zodiac Beasts).
Speedroid Scratch and Speed Draw fucking when, Konami?
I never read the manga or watched the ZeXal anime, what the fuck is with this card?
To be honest? I hope the next series is just as bad if not worse than 5D's and Arc-V put together. I'm getting old and I'd rather the franchise die then not be around to enjoy it anymore. I mean, I'm almost 28
I mean I like the wacky side characters too, but giving the Keikaku Catchphrase guy a duel this late in the game is bad pacing
That's Aqua from Kingdom Hearts.
This is a nanner with a keyblade.
>I like the wacky side characters too
Do you really? Do you?
Also, it's not Reiji's low duel count or him participating in a duel against a big bad isn't specifically a pacing problem you dumbbell, it's just more of the show fucking over its characters.
>What are your hopes/expectations?
Arc-V is the first since GX and last Yugioh i will watch. I don't play the card game so i'm not interested in the next Yugioh. Specially considering it will most likely be Zexal 2.0 with a retarded plot.
Let's be serious here. Theres no way they can possibly top an Interdimensional War Plot. Th next Yugiohs will be shit with boring plots
This is the face of a Ruri without her Yuu
She's a strong independent ruri who don't need no Yuu
Would you consider the people of these threads part of your 'online community'?
I'd ravage Serena's holes so hard
Because its fun,why does it bother you?
I too have this question. And let's not pretend that it is because of Yuto, because in episode 1, Zarc did show up mildly when Pendulum was created. You can spot him just by what he said "My monster servants".
Because it makes for good porn, even if it is hilarious.
I'm so disappointed in what happened to this show. I genuinely thought Xyz Dimension would change everything for the better. I thought we were only half way through. I thought to myself, "there's no way the writers would waste 50 episodes in Synchro if there would only be 150 episode", so I thought there'd be around 200 episodes given the ambitious scale and magnitude of Zarc-V's story and plot. Sadly, the barren shit wasteland that was Heartland as well as the terrible episodes in Academia and Fusion were the nail in the coffin. To be fair though, I genuinely liked episode 120, it was one of the few episodes that had a legitimate atmosphere of zetsubo and (if you didn't see spoilers) a great cliffhanger ending. But the 2 episodes that followed were almost worse than Eita's episode. How do you fuck up such a potentially great show?
For all that we shit on Arc-V now, it had the greatest potential of all YGO, no, all card game anime ever. Our excitement through season 1 bares witness to that.
>Stop Ray from being brought back.
>Spirit possess Reira
>Final duel is against him
I would unironically be hyped for this.
