>we will never going to have better MC than him.
Can't believe it's been a year since I made this shitty image
Well it's relevant again I guess
>original DM is rewritten with each MC using a specific summon mechanic - kaiba uses 'glorious' synchros, yugi uses Xyz and occasionally pulls out fusions because fuck you king of games, and jo uses just tributes and fusion summons early on, before adopting better fusions and Xyz as he gits gud
>pegasus tweaks his deck to be anti-synchro against kaiba, and constantly changes styles against yugi to fuck with him
>malik uses straight up burn and combos with an improved ra
>slifer and obelisk get beefed up too
would you watch it?
WHY didn't he tell Yoko/Yuya where he was going and what to do while he was gone? The police could have very easily thought him dead and charged his wife with murder in the years since he mysteriously disappeared.
Screw MC, he's the best character in the franchise and that's saying all you need to know if you watched GX. The fact that Judai is the most complex character they have managed to write in 2 decades is evidence of how garbage the anime franchise is(the card game's too but for entirely different reasons).
What would you all like to see in the 20th Anniversary Pack 2nd Wave? Presumably based on 5Ds, Zexal and Arc-V.
We know that we're getting Cosmic Blazer Dragon, something related to Don Thousand and an Action Duel-like card.
Judai only gets complicated around S3 and S4 when Supreme King shit starts going on, otherwise he's just sort of a happy go lucky dork. Sort of like a mixture of Yugi (not Atem) and Yuya (which granted Yuya is more like original Judai, but you get the point).
Supreme King saved the fuck out of Judai.
They ruined the adventures of Snack Princess and Snack Butler is what happened.
only 2 weeks left until we get the new series and MC
third and fourth season are the reason Judai is the best writing protagonist in this franchise. we could argue that season two too. Saiou started what Supreme King and Yubel finished. "stop fucking around you retard.". i liked how gx showed how shitty situations can do a 180º on people.

Episode 134: 闇の誘惑 - Yami no Yūwaku
(Allure of Darkness)
Yuya’s anger toward Yuri, who had defeated Yusho, reaches a breaking point. A Duel between Yuya and Yuri then begins. With the “Smile World” card his father left behind for him in hand, Yuya fearlessly resolves to fight Yuri!
Yuya’s anger toward Yuri, who had defeated Yusho, reaches a breaking point. A Duel between Yuya and Yuri then begins. With the “Smile World” card his father left behind for him in hand, Yuya fearlessly resolves to fight Yuri. However, when the dragons on the Field resonate, the darkness within Yuya and Yuto’s hearts overflows and torments the two of them!
Script: 田村竜 || Tamura Ryou
Not really much of surprise with the cast list. Well guess this literally makes it 10 episodes since Shun been rendered useless and irrelevant to the real plot and 12 episodes since Gon and Sawatari stopped mattering. And Sora, who gives a shit he's been nothing but a worthless spectator since 125.
The filler episode that pissed me right the hell off was a hint of the shows laziness. Fully how the only thing notable that came out of it was a new fusion that will never be used again.
That contract extension was a complete waste.
That was Yuma's personality though, he always believed the best of his friends.
One of the few good things about ZEXAL was that this actually bit him in the ass with Vector, and rendered him useless when the Barian Emperors were off killing his friends.
That I understand to be that was bonderline naive and one of the things I honestly could not stand about him and most of his losses treated as comic relief.
I am glad because there was a scenario like that but afterwards it kinda goes back to his way.
I think there is a way to make everyonw happy with the new Yugioh Anime while staying a Shounen.
How about having a Male MC with a Spirit as a partner again? But wait here is the twist. This time the Spirit partner is a girl.
I think the next series should be about a hard-ass average joe dueling cop & his partner, who doesn't take crap from anyone, fights against some retarded magical destiny without magical MC powers, and ends up winning the girl in the end. He should have an awesome warrior-based deck too to really drive it home he's a cool guy.
I think the next series should do a digimon type setup: average kid/kids(with conveniently goofy hair) get sucked into the yugioh world. They're all fans of the game, and get to ride around on all sorts of retro monsters and fight to save the world.
setting is DT world, with steelswarm roach as an ally.
or do a cardfight-style series where they're just card game fans.
filler, then all the yuzus were parasite brainwashed to try and kill/capture all the attackers. yugo lost to rin, then was absorbed by yuri. asuka got carded by yuri while he shilled the antique gear structure deck. gongenzaka and sawatari lost to filler, who also carded tsukikage and crow.
leo's endgame is to fuse all the dimensions into arc-v to bring back his daughter, who is the combination of all the yuzus. he dueled and humiliated reiji. reiji then dueled and almost lost to reira who wants to help leo bring back his (apparent) sister.
yusho then got off his ass and dueled yuri(and had one of the best duels in the series), before getting #rekt by a combination of clear wing and starve venom
oh, and the yuus are an ancient evil from before the world was split into 4, who went insane with power and merged with a dragon to become Zarc. EGAO mode is actually zarc's will manifesting, and yuya's losing complete control now. next episode he's dueling yuri/go
Could Judai have won this?
I seem to remember Judai having just the right cards to pull of a win or at least stall Slifer long enough so it'll leave the field after a special summon.
Fucking hell Ono can't you do anything right?
Because the ratings were higher than usual, no change to the top 10. Still plenty more chances in the future as we have at most 15 more episodes.

She truly is best girl
DM had DSoD which gave Yugi and Kaiba enough representation.
I guess Jonouchi and Bakura got the short end of the stick by not getting to duel, but they still played a role in the movie (I'm not going to say exactly what because of spoilers).
Judging by how everyone is treated in Arc-V, it was for the best that DM characters didn't star in the anime.
Oh I forgot to mention, the whole point of the recent Yugioh anime movement is to represent all series in the same year.
DM got the movie DSoD while GX, 5D's, and Zexal had the legacy characters star in Arc-V.
The problem in the Arc-V anime is that the staff didn't even try to represent the other series equally.
And the ping pong dimension attacks again. On a side note: No Ruri nor Ray doujins yet? They are such quality girls and Ray has all the conditions to be a lewd onee-san
>I guess Jonouchi and Bakura got the short end of the stick by not getting to duel, but they still played a role in the movie (I'm not going to say exactly what because of spoilers).
All Jonouchi gets to do is get fired from his job and banished to another dimension by Aigami to get saved by Atem and has another Kaiba wetdream.
Bakura was even worse, he's still cucked by his alter ego since the only reason Aigami gives a shit about him is that Yami Bakura killed Shadi and Aigami is still butthurt about that so he tried to kill him but then Bakura goes right back to the background like always.
He still has those fangirls so there's that little manga callback.
>Same guy that has Yugi and Kaiba's duel end inconclusively for the sake of fanservice
Didn't Yugi win?
Final Geas nuked the grave and Kaiba didn't have anything to stop Dark Magician's direct attack.
Does Chronos-sensei use the men's bathroom or the ladies ' room?
He was smirking, and the duel ending
Can't say shit. Especially given how those duels and spirit meter worked.
>B-but c'mon on Anon, he TOTALLY lost!
Then show him losing. There's literally no reason not to besides being too chicken shit to show a definitive win for Yugi over Kaiba
The ending probably won't be too unconventional, although it's a possibility considering Arc-V has been pretty groundbreaking during its run(for better or for worse). The most we can hope for is a good conclusion for all characters. I think we can expect the cast to display signs of growth at the very end, and maybe satisfactory conclusions for some of the official couples.
>Especially given how those duels and spirit meter worked.
The duels play like normal except for the starting hand rule and the spirit meter was only relevant for the Aigami duel.
>Then show him losing. There's literally no reason not to besides being too chicken shit to show a definitive win for Yugi over Kaiba
Can't blow all that cash to pander to Kaiba fanboys then show him job in his own movie, it's bad for Komoney to collect the cash.
>no new game mechanics
>still trying to improve those lame ass vanillas after the massive failures the Red-eyes and Dark Magician decks turned out to be.
>same decade old villains
Just give me YGO 6, we need a fresh start already.
The last few episodes, albeit not very good, aren't considered worse than Eita. The japs are trying to show that they're fed up with Arc-V and are giving it bad ratings in a 4chan-like troll attempt. The chatbox next to the Arc-V episodes on nico prove that they're having fun doing this. Arc-V is now a laughingstock in most Japanese anime communities, but hey, it's all in good fun.
118 and 112. Those are the only eps I would consider entirely irredeemable.
Shit like 114, 119, and 121-122 was just predictably bad and even then was a more engaging waste of time than Eita in terms of concept.
112 completely shit on Academia and their conflict with XYZ and 118 fucked over an arc-v character offscreen for no discernible reason other than to just not need to deal with him later.
To the credit of 92 specifically: it had touching moments that affirmed where Yuya's loyalties sat once and for all through his discarding of Smile World to save Yuzu, even if it only worked for a brief moment.
>slifer and obelisk get beefed up too
Why? Slifer and Obelisk are OP as fuck
greatest love story of all time
The concept of 92 and the built up to it was by all means too soon or should have been done much sooner instead of having an entire arc be 5D's 2.0 only for it to be treated as an afterthought in the end.
To me, the whole Fusion arc was the full point where the writers could not have cared less what they were doing. 115 pissed me with he start of the shows laziness having Yuzu get kidnapped with little resistance and Gon/Sawatari being tied like idiots and Yuya in a poor position Sora needed to save his ass.
The we got the whole setup to the BB arc which by all means destroyed the shows credibility and confirm on so many desperate attempts the writers would make to have Academia seem like a threat when they already botched up at XYZ arc to the point where Yuri alone has to kill off any character in sight. Then we get Ruri in the mix, who ended up being the most disappointing out of all the counterparts and is established at this point for her looks, Yuto's eye-candy and Shun's sister only by name.
After waiting for years for Leo to do something other than sitting on his ass to find out he's an insane moron that caused a multiple amount of problems yet the characters now act like his method is what saves the world.
Reira's character development that comes out right the hell out of no where that's basically a poor excuse to have Reiji do something. Edo and Kaito get informed of the real plot by Yushou before any of the original characters after they've been rendered useless. The two making the dumbest of moves aiming at Yugo, costing him his main cards that could have helped him in his duel. Then once they lose aren't even carded no matter how quickly/easy it is especially with how quick it was to card Yushou while he was at mid-air.
I hope the next protag isn't a slut
Not to mention that the BB arc, in trying to make Academia seem like more of a threat, killed more members of Academia than it did Lancers.
Even including Gon getting beaten and Sawatari getting disqualified.
Long post, but worth reading.
I agree with you, character development has gone downhill ever since the Xyz dimension arc, and the story in the Synchro dimension was pretty much a complete waste of time.
There were a few good moments here and there but overall, Arc-V ever since its 2nd year is just dissapointing.
Do you know what continuity is, you nigger?
Synchros don't work in DSoD because they weren't created until like 20 years after the events of this movie. Zexal and Arc-V aren't even in the same universe.
Nothing that happens in DSoD breaks the continuity of anything other than DM, funny enough. Like I said, kill yourself you animeonly cunt.
>waited until the movie was finished
>didn't include legacy characters
>used time in synchro to show scenes with the Lancers together instead of in the tournament
>had Yoko give Yuya a lecture on how not to get tunnel vision instead of the EGAO world talk
>make Yuya chase off Jobbelisks/BB with a Lancer tag duel to show off their strengths
Sawatari's disqualification was an even worse extension to Crows idiotic move if Yuya and Gon never showed up conveniently. Speaking of which sure was a "wise" move whoever was responsible for to add Crow if he was going to do nothing but cost an ally a chase at dueling. What's even suffering is that "duel" was borderline abridge just to hype up BB's deck when they already had silhouette's of his monster in 118.
>not kill Yuto
How the fuck would that make the show better?
Kachidoki v Yuya would be terrible, there wouldn't be any forwarding of the Yuu plot until after the tournament, and it would just add one more character the writers would have to develop and create duels for.
Rather than kill Yuto, have him awaken much sooner than originally planned. Let his memories overflow with Yuya's so we can see more of heartland and understand his pain and connection to Shun and Ruri. Then have him awakened during the middle of Synchro and use Heartland to develop not only him but hint on Zarc after 92,
No, it was called that in the manga. The card game was called Duel Monsters since 1998. Toei created the name, and Konami used it for their video game, which in turn led to them making their own game.
>maybe satisfactory conclusions
GX and 5D's got that despite all signs going against it.
>for some of the official couples
This is the only one to have explicit, deliberate development that actually attempts to be two-sided romance, which is new, so if it ever happens it will be now.
1. Have Yuto wake up sooner and have him interact with people besides Yuya.
2. Have the Xyz arc last longer and focus on Yuto, Shun, and Ruri.
3. No legacy characters .
4. Have people interact in Synchro instead of the hotel shit.
5. Make Leo and Yuri more threatening earlier on.
>5. ARC-V 131 - 9.3%
>9. ARC-V 132 - 12.7%
...It's an improvement.
1. Keep Yuto alive and relevant longer
2. Make Yuri relevant earlier
3. Give all dimensions equal screentime
4. Keep characters together for maximum interaction and development between all different factions
5. Legacy characters should be
sooner (Crow/Jack are fine)
thatd be too distracting anon
as it is, he is all I can think of
1. No legacy characters, period
2. Get rid of the Friendship Cup entirely or have it be just one big dueling race that lasts no more than 6 episodes
3. Make Rin and Ruri relevant and active in the Synchro and Xyz arcs
4. Have years 2 and 3 be roughly 26 episodes each of Synchro, Xyz, Fusion, and ARC-V
5. Have all the characters be given more and proper care in general along with room to breathe so they can flesh out
Yuri should just kill everybody with his new edgy powers
>Subtlety is key
Yeah, that's why people watched DM... for its subtlety...
>Yuri and Yuto in riding suits never
can someone here give me one actual reason to watch this shitty normalfag anime? Go watch some real anime, I bet you faggots watch dubs and dont even torrent your shit from nyaa. You guys are honestly pathetic and dont deserve the life your mother and father gave yo. In fact they probably hate you and wish death on you everyday because they raised a failure. Honestly op btfo
1st- Don't take the bait
2nd- It's not their fault the pokemon writers are more retarded than Arc-V current ones. At least the quality is ascending slowly here. In there they have to go through the myth of Sysyphus
There is literally no normalfag appeal in this anime. A normalfag would puzzle at why anyone would watch a kids' anime that looks ugly as hell half the time and goes out of its way to make viewers disappointed or mad.
The one anime where we need fanservice and we get the wrong kind. Life is indeed cruel.
What do you use to hold your cards? What do your sleeves/deck box look like?
>Then in the next season they BECOME THE CARDS.
>Then the season after that they start Punching the cards.

He just to visit his homeland in the Underworld and maybe do some site-seeing around it's most famous attraction.
>Then in the next season they BECOME THE CARDS.
I've got nothing better to do. Give me the card list and storyboard order.
>Then in the next season they BECOME THE CARDS.
because he's a slut who lets any monster inside of him
I'm not sure the exact order, but it's kind of a doozy. if I had to guess it would go something like this: Gagabyte>Eria the Water Charmer>Triangle Power>Familiar Possessed: Eria>???>Stumbling>???>Dimensional Prison>D.D Borderline>Level Conversion Lab>Two Man Battle Cell>Unified Front>My Body as a Shield> Absolute End> Spirit Barrier> ??? > Altar For Tribute > Giga Gagagigo> Gogiga Gagago > Gagagigo the Risen
And I actually missed a fuckton of cards too. Good luck if you actually take a shot at putting these int he right order, especially if you include Freed's Storyline, and some of the other cards that show up.
It was featured in one of the Master Guide, which is also on the wiki.
Are the other Elemental Charmers worth mentioning?
I hope the next protag is a canon manwhore like Yusei who shakes hands with anybody.
I'd need to make canvass several times larger than the board's limit and maybe even /hr/'s to fit everything while not making the cardart only fit for ants (so approx 350p width/500p height).
Ideally you'd tie into the storylines of Freed (and also the Goblins by their extension), Marauding Captain, and Kozaky among a few others who each contributed.
This could easily be made into a grand unified storyline with upwards of ~80-100+ cards by the end.
Where would you host such an image?
well, Leo is the big bad, and I can't see Ray as supporting Leo's actions.
Meanwhile, she also believes Zarc can be healed, so I can see yuya dueling zarc in his mind(a la yugi vs bakura), while outside ray duels leo while zarc also tries to destroy the both of them.
Because people have shit taste. Seriously there are so many better anime this season. Develop some taste and go watch them and discuss in their threads than circlejerk a shitty general for a shitty show.
>Yusho: Weaker than Joeri so it wouldn't make sense to see Yuya fighting him cause we know he can trashed him
>Yuzu: Weakest duelist in the Show. It would be forced as fuck.
>Reiji: Yuya's rival and still undefeated by Yuya but he isn't THAT relevant anymore plus almost got defeated by Reira and Leo so it would feel weird to have him as the final duelist.
>Ute: Yuya's spirit partner and just like Yuma/Astral, Yugi/Atem i could see a Yuya Vs Ute happening as the final duel.
In conclusion it will be Yuya Vs Ute
I miss him so much
>67 individual IPs
>several people continue to post in the thread
>multiple people who like judai
you know, it's a hard thing to imagine, but maybe multiple people in this thread like judai?
inb4 I'm one of the samefags this is my fifth post in the thread, and I was talking about the next series and the upcoming finale.
Yuzu has the most potential unfortunately that wasn't shown yet but she's at least on evens with Serena. Rin would be a strong factor with her burn damage and Synchro alone. Ruri would mostly be last.
I BET YOURE A FUCKING BITCH DESU
Rin's the strongest, that is if they were to ever give her another synchro on par with Crystal Wing, Right now Ruri's the strongest, Her deck is annoying and can peak you to death, Serena's is still the same ole one pattern, Yuzu's has that lock and Rin doesn't have nearly enough cards to have a deck, to be a true terror she has to borrow Yugo's dragon's and a few of his cards. With those, she's on par with Ruri. In short, Rin=Ruri, Serena>>>>Yuzu.
So, anons, how would you have made the series better?

>shit, he was constantly interacting with shun, maybe have him realize that sometimes, even if you want to have fun, you have to take things seriously, even while shun learns from yuya that not everyone is an enemy in disguise
He takes priority over Raging in my extra though. In emergency cases, Rebellion can be summoned via Absolute and in death will blow up my remaining scale or both, go to them and search me another scale next turn. Then I pendulum summon and do stuff with the blown up scales or something.
Raging on the other hand while he has a better scale, the fact he doesn't destroy the scales on death means he is much less useful. Has a better effect, but both he and Rebellion are way too situational to be summoned via Xyz
It's weird, they're more useful as scale cleaners then the monsters of destruction they're portrayed as in the anime.
With this new deck I've been finding Enlightenment Paladin to be the most useful out of Yuya's own cards thanks to Tune and White Wing Magicians. He's so easy to make now. Zarc better be fucking good, it's the last chance for extra deck pendulums to redeem themselves as that whole "Beyond the pendulum" thing
I feel like building a new deck based on a character.
>vanilla elemental HEROes(judai)
I'll try anything, within reason.
Easy to make and recover spells. A bunch of Yuya's cards have their own uses IRL even while being not exactly the inteneded use sometimes. Though I highly doubt Nirvana High will ever find itself in the extra deck. For a bunch of powerful effects, the cost for him doesn't compensate and being level 10 worsens it even more.
My autism flares up everytime I see the Four Dimension archetype. It should have had:
>the four dimension dragons
>a Fusion-Pendulum and Synchro-Pendulum equivalent to OERD
>an upgraded Pendulum form of OEPD
But what the fuck do I know, maybe that's the reason I don't design cards for Konami.
>>a Fusion-Pendulum and Synchro-Pendulum equivalent to OERD
That's kind of only because Yuya and Yuto fused. It's highly probably Yuri shows a Starving Venom Clear Dragon or Clear Wing Venom Dragon
>>an upgraded Pendulum form of OEPD
While I would agree with you, if you come to think of it, Pendulum is more used as a gateway to the other summonings. Likewise, Odd-Eyes' evolution isn't exactly a singular one, but many possibilities. He is kind of like Eevee.
>It's highly probably Yuri shows a Starving Venom Clear Dragon or Clear Wing Venom Dragon
Only Pendulums work for it, though, since they cover half the card. You can't have a Fusion/Synchro monster.
I'm more upset that the manga equivalents are specific to their archetype so far. I'm praying Anthelion isn't printed for Phantom Knights.
Well, he will be fusing two dragons so there is a high chance the combination of Starving Venom and Clear Wing will be full fusion. And if he gets a Raging equivalent that uses the other as base (Raging is more similar to Odd-Eyes while Rebellion is more similar to Dark Rebellion), it may be synchro instead.
It really should of been a level 12. That way a level 5 magician like stargazer and acrobat or a level 4 magician, which we have by the truckloads, could bring it out, as it is now you need either Timebreaker and Timegazer Magician in your extra deck or hand to be summoned
Don't really see why he's so great. I mean the happy-go-lucky and passion for dueling is great but all that crap in s3 with him going supreme king was supremely retarded and forced as fuck. There was no sense of natural progression, it's like the writers were like "oh fuck, we need to add some drama and make this kid suffer." It was pretty dumb now that I look back at it.
Even Kaz thinks the show went too far on Judai. I mean, he fucking committed Genocide and spent several episodes having PTSD episodes and suicidal tendencies. That's a bit too heavy for a show about card games, i don't know why they doubled down on that with early 5D's by having a dystopian city, multiple murder attempts, a massive cult with a mentally damaged girl as their figure head, brutal cop murder, a kid get shocked to death, a woman commit suicide by driving her car off a cliff to drown, cop killer brutally beaten and eventually starved to death in his cell and an entire poor population get eaten alive by shadow spiders.
What this anon said >>150517873 about Clear Wing and Starve Venom.
About that Odd-Eyes being the Eevee of dragons, it's interesting to think that the original Chicken, in a way, has an evolution for each Summoning method:
Saber - Special
Meteorburst - Synchro
Absolute - Xyz
Gravity - Ritual
Vortex - Fusion
Pendulum - Pendulum
Also, I still think Raging Dragon's design should have been used for an OEPD Pendulum evolution, but whatever.
Pretty sure he didn't script the whole thing. Most likely just told them to add the Supreme King stuff in based off of whatever came into his head. But it was up to the writing staff to actually fit it in the show.
He's done. None of the supporting arc-v cast are going to duel anymore. They lied to you with this picture in the OP.
He didn't script, but he wrote the main plot. He thought, "Maybe this is a bit too far" in hindsight, but he never said it with solid language. Then again, that might be Japanese for "it's garbage".
Brace yourselves, this is gonna be a fat post (part 1 of 2):
Some ideas of what would've made Standard, Synchro, Xyz, and Fusion better. (Assuming 150 episodes).
For starters, 1 legacy character per series including DM and their roles should not override Arc-V originals plus have better Ritual representation while being less relevant or very useful in some way. Also, character development and emotional attachments for the audience should be present throughout.
1) Make it 45 episodes without shitty filler like Yuya vs. Eita, Yoko, etc.
2) Make the MCS shorter but the duels more fulfilling so duels aren't done offscreen while Mieru joins Lancers
3) Don't kill Yuto
4) Make Serena a legit threat: she shouldn't have been so easily turned against Academia
5) Make it explicit or implicit that the OF will invade Standard after the Lancers leave, and make the departure more emotionally fulfilling while Yuto also goes to Synchro with Shun.
1) Reduce Synchro to 30 episodes
2) Apportion the subplots as follows: exploring the City (5 episodes), Prison (5 episodes), and Friendship cup (20 episodes).
3) Have Roger explain some plot (Academia info)
4) Make a Shiro (anime's Ren) replace Jack and Shinji replace Crow
5) Make Shinji less REEE-able while having Shiro interact with Lancers and not sit on his ass all day like Jack did
6) Make the Friendship Cup tag duels
7) Sora work against Lancers "on Roger's side" as a triple agent while Dennis gets sent to Xyz.
8) Introduce Aki for the fan service.
9) Give Yugo reference Rin a lot and have lots of flashbacks. Also, Yugo and Yuya for finale. Winner faces Shiro. Yuya wins but uses Magicians/Paladins so Yugo isn't absorbed.
10) Have Academia together with Serena and Yuri invade Synchro and force the Lancers, Yuto and Yugo into Xyz after Yuya defeats Shiro to become the Duel King. In other words, Yuri and Serena are an evil duo. Sora goes to Xyz.
If they were all Pendulum Scale 1/8, they could mix better with the built-in Dark Magician support (TDIL and Mahad), since it relies on Spell/Traps. In other words, you could run more monsters and fewer S/T without losing your ability to summon Dark Magician. As it is, one is only good if you have space for monsters, and the other needs loads of non-monsters to work consistently. You'll basically be doing "Magician Girls with a Dark Magician thrown in" as it is now.
Pendulum Magician are cool, but at that point Dark Magician is a waste of space, really. If you're doing Magician Girls, you need something else with a strong backbone.
I'd love to see them do some fucking. Is it their
>wrote the main plot
We don't know exactly how much he wrote. He just mentioned he wrote the Supreme King stuff but it's possible everything else in s3 he didn't write since Supreme King was only a part of it. That could also include the Yubel stuff too since she was relevant outside of just Supreme King subplot. The concept isn't bad since I get the idea that Judai needs to grow up, but the execution could use some work.
Yuma defended Ura because Gauche wanted to beat the shit out of him and kick him out of the city. He has no problem with Ura being disqualified out of the tournament. Besides,he didn't defend him when the other players gave Ura a payback
For any interested:
Part 2 of 3 (longer than I thought) of what a lot of people wanted Arc-V to:
1) Make Xyz 25 episodes long
2) Make the Resistance present and part of the arc's plot
3) All the Lancers are in Xyz including Yuzu
4) Introduce Edo but make him far more menacing: first Yuto defends Yuya and Edo draws against Yuto.
5) Introduce Anna as Allen's sister OR Kaito or Shark as the leaders of the Resistance.
6) Tyler Sisters are moved to the Fusion arc
7) Have an emotional duel between Sora and Yuya where Sora loses and repents (EGAO'd)
8) Have many emotional flashbacks between Yuto and Ruri
9) Dennis and Serena fight the Lancers but get defeated by Yuya and Yuto and repent.
10) Edo DEFEATS Yuya and Dennis once again betrays Lancers (and together with Barrett) defeat them so Lancers are imprisoned. He wants to card them but remembers Yusho's egao and pities Yuya so sends them to Fusion instead as prisoners before Yuri arrives to card them. Yuto and Yugo follow.
I agree that he probably didn't write the other stuff (Jim in particular feels nothing like him), and I don't disagree that they didn't do it well. But I would also argue that DM, which stole Takahashi's script and panels exactly, also could've used some work overall.
Finally for any interested, Part 3 of 3 of what Arc-V could've been:
1) Fusion is 25 episodes long
2) Barrett, Tyler Sisters, and BB sent to annihilate Lancers while Yuzu is captured
3) Dennis repents and fights Barrett to liberate Lancers at last but commits emotional suicide because he realizes he cannot go to either Academia nor Lancers since he betrayed twice.
4) Yuya finally defeats Edo and egaos many Academia troops but Herr Professor steps in.
5) Herr Doktor sends brainwashed Ruris to battle their respective Yu's to kill them. All are emotional duels. Yuya beats Yuzu, Yuto beats Ruri but parasite enters Yuto and brainwashes him. Yuya beats brainwashed Yuto and absorbs him. Yugo bears Rin but Yuri shows up. Yuri beats unbrainwashed Serena in an ironically emotional duel appealing to evil fun. Yuri captures her and the brainwashed Ruris.
6) Yugo vs. Yuri is epic duel with no intrusions. Yuri defeats Yugo and absorbs him.
7) Yusho appears and emotional reunion between Tou-san and musuko but broken by Yuri and Leo.
8) Lancers reunite: Reiji duels Leo and beats him but Doctor inserts parasite so Leo can resurrect Ray successfully.
9) Yuya vs. Reiji III. Yuya wins and Leo gets pissed and cards Doctor (also due to his ambition). But too late to stop Ray's revival.
10) Reira's backstory explained more in depth with connections to Original Dimension.
11) Yuri beats Yusho and cards him.
12) Yuya vs. Yuri ensues. Hitotsu Nii and Arc-V happen.
>Original Dimension (Arc-V)
1) 20 episodes (5 episodes back in Standard for finale)
2) Zarc vs. Lancers
3) Zarc vs. Ray
4) Yuya conquers Zarc through Pendulum. Pendulum is explained.
5) Everyone is ok and goes back to their dimensions and slice of life ensues. Also, Yuya vs. Yusho for final duel back in Standard.
A lot of DM's problems came from not properly adapting vol 1-7, and then making dumb changes to DK because NAS logic. BC was done well, almost panel for panel adaptation. Fillers are necessary. MW was a mess with original content that didn't fit well and literally 0 budget because of PoL and GX.
>because of PoL
Somehow, I doubt that.
They are. It was either that or terrible, awful, literally-three-characters-saying-the-same-thing-before-and-after-the-draw-phase episodes like we had in Duelist Kingdom and traces of in Battle City.
Not to mention, Wynn's partner, Petit Dragon ALSO has its own story where it becomes Darkfire Dragon, then becomes Five Headed Dragon, is defeated by Dragon Master Knight, gets sealed into the sword Salamandra and is wielded by Flame Swordsman.
Anthelion can't be restricted to PKs like Fast Dragon is for Speedroids, cos Anthelion is Rank 7, while PK is Rank 3 and 4 based, 5 if you count Launch.
Unless they release another PK RUM or make Anthelion an Xyz Change onto Rebellion or Requiem.
That reminds me. Yuma had an entire archetype that revolves around summoning monsters from various Ranks. Gagaga Magician has an easy effect for it, in particular, and he uses the level effect more for Wonder Wand than for summoning another monsters--he only used Gagaga Magician for summoning HOPU. There was only one exception, and it was a R3. My biggest problem with the duels wasn't even that I thought Hope shouldn't have been in it; my problem was that they built a plot around collecting 99 (retconned to 100) monsters that can all be Xyz summoned, and instead of having awesome duels with Yuma expanding his arsenal of Numbers and calling them out in all kinds of situations for all kinds of solutions, he uses Hope for everything, with most others being used just once by him, being used never, or not existing in the show.
After 5D's started to feel realistic because the real-life game was getting faster, ZEXAL throws it all away by making it so every character has a single move they pull off on their first turn in every duel, which makes it seem ridiculous despite the real life game having gotten even faster. While real-life combos were started to get strong enough to rival the show, the show used weak cards to pull of unrealistic combos in new ways.
No episode. Delay from the natural disaster. If there's ever not an episode, just be patient and come back the next week. It's not exactly important info.
They didn't say anything. As far as we know, there isn't new info to come out. Be patient and stop asking; seriously, there isn't enough happening in the world of Yu-Gi-Oh! that you need to know not the announcement but the announcement of the announcement. If you're patient, it will come eventually.
Also how yuma has the power to create his own cards in the middle of the duel. Unlike atem before him who gets the exact card he needs at any time.
1. BETTER VILLAINS
2. Make Reiji's plans actually have some effect on the story
3. make anime MC the manga MC
4. Speed up all arcs after standard to create pressure.
5. Give characters more memorable monsters and have them be more interactive and "alive".
5 is one of the main problems all series after DM have. In DM the monsters were actual characters. Dark Magician and DMG had a story. Blue-Eyes did. Some monsters had extremely memorable first (only) appearances, like Magician of Black Chaos and the god Cards. They felt like actual monsters, like they were just trapped inside the cards, and not simply holograms. Now they are poorly designed and feel wooden. Granted, Takahashi doesn't design them anymore, but Odd-Eyes' first form is arguably the ugliest and most expressionless signature monster to date.
the signature dragons of arc-v have personalities
utopia was an actual character in arc-v(as was number 96), and gagaga girl was shown to have some personality as well
and then, of course, was GX, where a fuckton of the main cast's monsters interacted with them at some point, including the entire neo-spacian archetype being friends with judai their hero, and, of course, yubel.
I feel that the very dramatic summoning of the 3 gods in DM is still the thing that really sets the gods apart from regular monsters.
Of course, the brief appearance of Obelisk in DSOD, like in DM, was very dramatic.
Well, I've hardly seen any of GX so you may be right, but Arc-V's monsters are still really expressionless and irrelevant to the story's development compared to DM. First appearances are also very underwhelming (Nirvana and Enlightenment Paladin as prime examples). Monsters also lack movement and reactions. It may be that they are switching more and more to 3D and having shit budget, but that doesn't change the fact they could make them more dramatic.
There were, however some good moments that I wish we had more of. For example, when Shun dueled in Synchro (against Crow I think?) and he made himself lose 100 or so LP by some RR monster eff and it was shown as the bird knocking lightly on Shun's helmet. This tiny interaction alone, as subtle as it was, gives a lot of insight into the Character and his emotional connection to his deck.
>5. Give characters more memorable monsters and have them be more interactive and "alive".
Do you think Shun & Ruri would secretly fight over Yuto in his absence?
>Ruri: Yuto promised to take me to Heartland Amusement Park tomorrow.
>Shun: That cannot be, he and I had already planned to enter the regional duel tournament together then.
How would you rate it?
no. Enjoy this booty instead
Post RELEVANT booty. If we wanted that kind of booty, we'd go to the FATE thread.
>We never got to see Judai's Wacky Road Trip where he duels powerful characters as he travels the open road with Pharaoh and the Professor.
phantom is a best
I hope that Yuri has a personality similar to phantom when he eventualy turns good in the anime
I want to watch the original yugioh dm anime, but its a lot of episodes, and I dont feel like watchuing everything, maybe just certain episodes for the duels. What would you guys recomend? Maybe I should read the manga and then watch certain episodes afterwards. I heard the filler sagas also have some good duels in there.
It used to be funny to watch 4kids' dubs, I remember getting some
friendsover to watch the 5ds dub and laughing our drunk arses off at aussie Jack, now it's just sad to watch
Yeah I was planning to watch those sometime, plus some other episodes once I get round to reading the manga, Like the coliseum battle with Kaiba and Yugi, Yugi versus Marik and the memory world stuff.
Are you implying it isn't great? RPG is my second favorite part of the whole thing.
This so much. He is best boy of the entire franchise. I liked YGO but it was Judai who got me hooked to the franchise.
Then Yusei almost ruined it for me, but then Yuma did control damage. Now, I'm losing hope again due to Yuya.
You realize there are Pokémon threads on this very board, right, "genius"?
Keep Sora relevant and let us watch his character development
Make Synchro half as long. Or better yet, it shouldn't exist
Don't send the Lancers through a plot hole
Make Reiji an actual rival. I don't like him but this one still sticks like a sore thumb for me.
Have another ZEXAL character appear. I nominate either Shark or Vector (Shut up, Crow appeared and wasn't a Signer)
There is an entire board just for pokemon.
There doesn't need to be a thread on /a/.
If you could genderbend a character from Yu-Gi-Oh!, who would be it?
Please tell me that the Shun Pikachu there is holding a
what exactly did he ever do?
I only ever watched the dub, but from my recollection he was goodwin's yes-man, sounded almost evil for a while, then yliaster showed up and he basically held the city together.
Lazar/Jaegar from 5Dongs
Didnt do anything memorable, but he is notably short and slimy like the other guys.
ITT: Poketto Monsuta Jigen invades Duero Monsutas and massive autism ensues.
