Jean pulls a Bakura and retrieves his body from the dumpster while in the ARC-V limbo dimension and rebuilt him .
He has the technology.
Faster (Nitro-rocket boots).
Stronger.
More varied summoning deck (Miracle Ritual/XYZ Monsters).

Kaiba: Hieratic Blue-eyes

>GX
Judai: Vanilla E-HEROes
Judai: Neo-Spacians
Johan: Crystal Beasts

Yubel: Yubel

>5D's
Yusei: synchrons
Rua: Morphtronics
Paradox: Malefics

>ZEXAL
Yuma: Gagaga
Astral: Utopia spam
ZEXAL: ZW utopia
Gauche/Droite: Heroic challengers/butterspy
Alito: Battlin' Boxers

>Arc-V
Yuzu: Melodious
Sora: Fluffals
Shun: RaidRaptors
Sawatari: Abyss Actors
BB: Gladiator Beasts
Reiji: D/D/D

I'll try and make anything work, within reason.

>>151591447
He could pull off triple Armageddon and suicide one of them to make the others 6000ATK. Besides, because they're unaffected by effects that don't target them, they should be safe from the nuke effect.

Heck, even Armageddon with Illegal Dark Contract with the War Lord would do it. ZARC to 3000 and Armageddon to 4000
>>
>>151591762
Zero and Infinity would keep him from taking damage, and Zarc wouldn't be destroyed by battle.

>>151594413
Scarlight is alright if your opponent plays a trash deck that can't negate/recover/float from a nuke, Clear Wing got powercreeped by Crystal Wing, even in non synchro climb decks people will just use tzolkin
>>
>>151594487
Scarlight is used to push for game. It doesn't matter if you float if you don't fill the field back up.
Clear Wing being powercreeped doesn't mean it wasn't a good card for a time. When Clear Wing came out it was good. Synchrofags bitching about their mechanic being bad while ignoring all the good cards they got and then saying the way non-synchro characters were treated in Arc-V was justice for it are retarded.

Don't expect anything much from children card game commercial anime. No YGO anime in its history has reached past 6/10. At best you'll find cool concepts and great moments but the whole show won't be consistent.

Just hope it won't be huge letdown like Arc-V.
>>
>>151596888
That fag is one of the few who actually died in GX

And he deserved it.

So I guess Yuya was less the Yugi analogue and more the Bakura analogue? In that case, who's the Yugi analogue?

>>151597241
Yuto.
>>
>>151597186
>>151597186
He didn't

He even has waifu who loved him
>>
>>151597346
Even though Edo shipped them, Amon was a dick to her.
Deserved death.
>>
>>151597385
When Exodia need a loved ones as sacrifice Amon choose Eco (or whatever her name is).

He loved her but he was blinded with power at that moment, and I'm sure Yubel was half-responsible for his attitude.
>>
>>151597256
Wouldn't he technically also be the Bakura analogue since they're the same person?
>>
>>151597461
I remember his duel with Yubel being about their definition of love.

>I loved Eco
>She wanted me to become somewho who would rule the world
>She sacrified herself out of her own will to make my wish come true

>Nah, you didn't even love her
>Love is about pain
>I felt pain
>Now i make Judai feel pain
>He suffers like i suffered and that connects us

At the end Amon realized he fucked up and loses. Not sure how exactly any of that made any sense. Maybe i remember things wrong.
>>
>>151597241
Yuya seemed to be a reversal of the rival and hero routine. Usually the Dragon thing is reserved for the Rivals with the exception of Yusei but even then he only had the Stardust Dragon and it's line while the rest of his deck was warriors.

>>
>>151597545
Amon and Echo grew up poor. He didn't want to just rule the world for selfish reasons. He wanted to create a world without poverty, envy and all that stuff.

Yubel says that Amon's world is trash because you're supposed to build a world with the one you love. Not by yourself. Amon counters by showing that even though it didn't seem like it, he was still using Exodia and Echo to help him fulfill his goals. But Yubel blew him out and he screamed Echo's name as he died.

There is no EGAO in ZEXAL. Just KATTOBINGU, which is a superior philosophy imo. Or at least it's promoted better.

Yes but in Zexal eveyone uses Xyz only, in arc-v you get to see synchro, fusion and pendulum so it feels way less dull.

Thanks to them shoving summoning method so hard in the show it happens IRL too.
Nowadays main deck mostly consist of fodder for Xyz summon which is mandatory for any deck and it's rare to see main deck focus, just like in ZEXAL.
At least on 5ds there are Earthbound Immortals and Meklord, and only Judai and Ryo who use Fusion as their main strategy on GX.

Arc-V has variety but they focus on Extra deck and even gave them speed to keep up with Xyz, the impact on IRL is irreversible, all thanks to ZEXAL.
>>
>>151602945
>Reira instantly sides with a random woman he does not know and tries to guilt trip his step-brother with said person he doesn't know.
The worst part is that, if they handled this better, it would have been a nice call back to Noah Kaiba's deal with the other Kaiba brothers.
>>
>>151603060
>Nowadays main deck mostly consist of fodder for Xyz summon
Considering how ubiquitous XYZ and Syncro were in the metas of Zexal and 5Ds respectively, you cant fault Arc V considering how relatively diverse decks have been. Over the Arc V era we've gotten Tier 1 Fusion, XYZ, Tribute, Pendulum and other random decks

Leo should have taken the Rayclones and explain the situation, no war involved. I'm sure Yuzu wouldn't have taken that badly given that she had issues with her adoptive dad over the entire adoption deal, though I admit Shun would have opposed to his adoptive sister going.

OR not do anything. He seriously screwed up and not all of his actions could be justified with his desire to have his daughter back.

IIRC, Kaito and Edo were trying to stop both Yuri and Yugo (Kaito stealing CWSD and SVFD with Neo Cipher). Yugo was the one actively and willingly wasting his cards trying to cockblock the Legacy duo (like when he used Dichroic Mirror against Kaito's Level 6 Cipher in an attempt to prevent him summoning Cipher Dragon). Yuri just chilled on the sidelines until he used Super Poly to summon Greedy.

>>151605560
> The way they were drawn in DVD artwork and openings is still best.
Yeah, because Hara Kenichi (GX Character and Monster Designer) drew most of these. 99% of GX anime was outsourced for animation. The only parts that weren't were openings/endings and second half of eight episode. Other than that, first episode was handled by Gallop's associate studio R, episode six was done by IMAGINE and first half of eight episode was done by WAO WORLD. The rest of episodes (2-5,7,9-180) has been animated by Dongwoo Animation, Korean based animation studio. Actually, that's where Noh Gil-bo started as an in-between animator, soon moved to key animation. Later he moved directly to Gallop and became Animation Director. The reason for this massive outsourcing was that at the same time Gallop was working on Eyeshield and the studio simply didn't have the resources to maintain two such project at the same time.

Concerning the new upcoming Yuu gi ou! series I sure hope Hara Kenichi will become episodic AD and will come back to AD rotation. Hara, Maruyama, Ebina and Noh Gil-bo would make for nice rotation team for in-house episodes.
>>
>>151607391
Memes aside, it's probably just an odd artistic choice to enhance the whole "forgotten evil from a lost world" angle. Avoiding the minimal effort that is coming up with a single face is an added bonus at best.

How do you all feel about Pendulum suffering Synchros treatment? Konami hates mastrubatory plays and both Pendulum and Synchro do that in spades, they have to, otherwise they'll lose. Arc-V has made it so fusions don't need to pull that stunt and now they're on par with xyz.

You need the excessive 5 minute combos since the rest of the synchro support is so shit.

If you want to play a synchro deck there are only 2 outcomes.

You play triple quasar/omega, lose most duels and completely demolish the opponent when you win.

You play something else, get overpowered and destroyed by everything halfway good because konami doesn't go out of their way to gimp those decks.

>>151610932
It is unique. The black, yellow, green color scheme was never used before, and then there's the long black-feathered wings that contrast with the main body. It is original.
>>
>>151610932
Those wings aren't just bigger, they're so gigantic that they change the entire shape into something slightly more interesting than your average dragon. I also like how the main body has this weird merge between the huge dragon tail and the smaller, more "humanoid" upper part going on. It's very appropriate for a fusion of a guy and his four dragons.
>>
I'm honestly amazed at how huge Zarc's wings are, I'm also surprised that not once does he flap them, he simply hovers

Whose bigger? Shooting Quasar, Zarc, God Neos or Horaky? I think Utopia Emperor was big,too as well as Beyond Utopia but not nearly as big as those monsters, Wait, I think Rainbow Neos is bigger.

The show was to sell trading cards to children from the start. If you haven't read the manga, you've already done it wrong.
Also, what exactly are you asking? None of the other shows try to do more with the original; they tell their own stories and have their own "points". Even GX and ARC-V, despite constantly bringing up the old ones.

The ones that are blind and in denial are the people who push this argument. It's not valid criticism because none of it pertains to Arc-V itself.

>Complain about Arc V having a bias towards 5Ds characters because GX characters are out of character
You do realize that Jack is pretty much a completely different guy? The reason 5Ds got more screentime than GX characters is the show wanted to fuck around in Syncro for half the show because they didnt have 150 episodes worth of actual plot
>>
>>151617092
5D's characters showing up earlier and doing no more than the other characters is hardly bias; if anything, that means they do less per appearance on average.

>>151617209
>You do realize Jack is pretty much a completely different guy?
Of course; being totally different than he was before is in-character for Jack!

I'm sure ZEXAL is the one on the bottom of the barrel here.

While Ono shit on Edo at least Asuka is still what we used to know, useless female jobber that is, and bunch of GX stuff like Academia, Ancient Gear, etc are there.
Meanwhile Zexal got nothing but Kaito and destroyed Heartland.

Synchro is the equivalent of the pre WGRP filler in 5Ds.

it's nothing but irrelevant padding.

The difference is that 5Ds got better afterwards while arc-v got worse.

>Synchro is the equivalent of the pre WGRP filler in 5Ds.
Wrong. The pre-WGRP filler was an all-time low in YGO, both in terms of story and production values.
That's not the case with Synchro. Despite the slow pacing and the disappointing conclusion, it had some great moments that looked both good and were enjoyable.
>>
>>151617139
It sure does. There is no argument anyone can come up with to the contrary.

Can it beat this though
>>
>>151617601
Yeah, ZEXAL got the short end of the stick in that regard. Though I think you could argue all three shows got better representation in some way:
Jack and Crow are decently in-character and there are a lot more background cameos from 5D's, but they're almost entirely removed from the plot.
Kaito is actually an active participant from his first appearance onward, but ZEXAL got only 1 character and 2 offhand references (Duel Lodge and Alan).
GX gets the most actual cards to support old archetypes, but both of its characters are laughably terrible in the show.

>>151619080
>Pendulum Dragon archetype instead of Odd-Eyes
No one wants worthless cards.
>>
>>151616017
My passion/love for it burnt out the moment the show decided to be lazy by shafting character left and right. I don't hate it but I will complain whenever the show does things even dumber especially with it's final act being dull.

None of them are presently well written. And no, Sawatari was never well written. You may like him, and that's the point of his character, but he's just comic relief with no backstory. Yuya, for example, was a well written character.

There might be some fiction mixed in here but these are the most certain (I didn't want to include the new Abyss Actor because that came in the same post as the Superheavy Samurai which wasn't true) but these came bundled together so they are the most credible

But Shun and Yuto have the exact same backstory give or take an imouto and Shun was a far more popular character even when their screentime was pretty similar.
And Shuns backstory is barebones, it gets the job done, but it comes down to
>Had imouto, pro duelist
>Fusion came, no imouto, angry imoutoman
He's a good character because of how he acts minute to minute

>>151620845
Yuto was similarly popular before he got killed.
>>
>>151620312
Backstories are the biggest part of development in the anime; you can even see this in the filler for DM. Look at Crow: what we knew of his backstory with Team Satisfaction strengthened his character considerably, but everything involving his Dragon was a hot mess from which he never recovered.

>>151620845
>Good backstories are a defining feature for well written characters [in Yu-Gi-Oh!]
Well written characters are characters with good backstories, not the other way around. I also think you're greatly simplifying a literal war.

I wouldn't say that every good character has a backstory because saying it as absolute would be ridiculous, but I'm hard-pressed to think of someone who's well written overall who doesn't also have a strong background.
>>
>>151620831
Only once more during Yugo vs Serena, and that was it, unless you counted Yuto vs Yugo Zarc darkness wrath and all four of the Yus getting it on, but yeah, syncing up like that only happened twice.
>>
>>151620976
>Look at Crow: what we knew of his backstory with Team Satisfaction strengthened his character considerably
You mean how he was Yuseis totally awesome best friend we'd never heard of before?

>but everything involving his Dragon was a hot mess from which he never recovered.
So you're saying a character developing in response to events in the narrative is bad? That's literally the whole point of fiction

>I also think you're greatly simplifying a literal war
I simplified it no more than the show did. His backstory isnt anything special, it informs how he acts by how angry he is, but no more than a character like Sawatari has (his backstory as a mayors son informs how spoiled and naive he acts)
>>
>>151615064
King Ghidorah?
>>
>>151621223
>You mean how he was Yuseis totally awesome best friend we'd never heard of before?
No, I'm not saying showing up out of nowhere was okay (though he had no reason to show up before that; it's not a problem he wasn't inserted unnecessarily before). We see development throughout HIS backstory, though. Like the other three, he's a guy who wants to make a name for himself because he lives in a terrible place. He's the most abrasive, but he ends up being the softest one, quitting before anyone else and deciding to do something more productive. It's nothing amazing, but it's well-done.

>So you're saying a character developing in response to events in the narrative is bad?
You're very bad at exegesis. Where did you even get that? I said the second backstory specifically was bad. That doesn't even involve "reacting to events in the narrative"; I didn't even touch on the present-day plot from those episodes.
The backstory introduced with Blackfeather Dragon is weak. It makes it unclear why he would join Team Satisfaction in the first place when it goes against the ideals of his older friends, his implied mechanical knowhow is attributed to someone else, and Crow is actually the one to get a "totally awesome best friend we'd never heard of before" even though there actually WERE plenty of times for them to come up naturally before then, unlike with Crow himself. The dragon itself represents everything wrong with Crow staying past the Dark Signers (made worse by being the designated Fifth Dragon despite showing up a whole 2/3 into the show). That last point is moot, though, since the dragon was just making the best of a bad situation, so I can't fault it for the base it had.

However, Crow is probably the best-written character throughout the show. Unlike Jack, he's consistent; unlike Yusei, he has development; and unlike the other three, he wasn't put in stasis for 100 episodes. I want to hear more positives than these threads usually have, though.
>>
>>151621073
It was so cool, I was hoping it'd happen more
>>
>>151619342
Who villain? BB was used more than Leo. Crow died with a smile on his face saving a friend and everyone mourned him.
Asuka got killed by someone who wasn't even using their real deck while screaming in terror. Asuka died twice in GX and didn't scream when it happened. On top of that, Yuri joked about her after it happened and no one cared.

Jack is the most respected duelist in his dimension and everyone kisses his ass. When he duels the whole dimension watches him on TV and stops doing whatever they're doing. He took out dozens of Security members, got a special summoning animation for Tyrant which was a callback to 5Ds as was most of what he did while dueling, got a grand entrance during Fusion, had all the Fusion duelists wetting themselves over his ace and snapped Yuya out of his depression. Jack was treated extremely well.
Edo was treated like a joke. He tied with Yuya, his leadership gets questioned, no one thinks of him as a strong duelist, he got shit cards, throws tantrums and is an afterthought. Edo has no connection to any character on the show so they have to force him to be connected to Yugo and Yuya. Edo was used far more than Jack to make Yuya and his daddy into Jesus figures. He's the Sakaki's bitch.

It's the same thing as saying "this episode looked good because Ebina was the animation director". No, the episode looked good because it was beautifully animated and the models were drawn with style.

"This drawing looks good because it's by Kaz" is an argument from authority, and this type of argument is frowned upon because it doesn't go into the details of the subject, instead relying on an established authority.

I guess you couldn't expect anything less from Ono. He had to wank off his directed series while making everyone else look like trash.

His only defense is that unlike Edo, Asuka actually still didn't do anything in her original series anyway.

Shun is next, followed by Gong. Who will be left standing?

That's very nice of you to see your fellow Ritualfags as aibous. Thank you! I will consider fellow Ritualfags including you to be my nakama! Considering how much the (((otherfags))) bully us, we should at least band together in some way, which is sad because we're almost all non-normies anyways.

>>151629451
I will never stop bullying ritualfags. You can't stop me!

I just got fucked by Odd Eyes Gravity Dragon. Am I a bad player or is that an acceptable monster to lose to?
>>
>>151629451
What is this "we" shit? Why would I want to be aibou with someone with a victim complex?

She was rather progressive for her. Doesn't want to be seen as just the pretty girl with big boobs, doesn't want her brother to shoehorn her into being an idol singer, wants to be appreciated because of her dueling prowess, doesn't need a man to define her and pursues her own career instead.

Then ARC-V came to be.

Everybody loses to dumb stuff sometimes. A guy at locals used to have a Mokey Mokey that he made people sign if he beat then with it, and it had a lot of signatures.

Oh, hey, (you)s are back. Still, I didn't expect a ritual in a pendulum magician deck. In fact, I didn't expect Odd Eyes cards at all, most people run pure magician with the extra deck being crambed full of other xyz cards rather than Yuya's stuff

Yes, I just started playing last month. I've watched for years tho. I play Jaden's Neo spacian deck, Is it me or is it really hard to do anything at all with this deck with just 1 Elemental Hero Neos? Jaden had to top deck like a motherfucker to use this thing

Oh, you just started playing? A shame that you can't play on DN since it closed a few months ago. It was the best way to learn to game, and it made me into a great player.

There's always YGOPro or DevPro.

>>151629784
I recommend, reading through the rules carefully. Do you have a deck in mind you want to make? If not, try making and playing some of these to see what seems fun. They're not meta, but they're anime inspired and run the gambit of themes.

Yuya's deck is such a mess at this point. And to think Yuma's was the most inconsistent

>>151629712
fair enough

>>151630249
Astrograph isn't with the magician archetype.

How large is his Main at this point anyway? He was spitting out new EMs right up until he went full HITOTSU NI.

More than 100 main deck monsters I think. Magicians included.
>>
>>151630595
Good Lord... His Main including S/T may become even larger than Astral's Extra Deck at the end of ZEXAL before ARC-V is over (if it's not already).

glad the layout color didn't end up like that, the pendulum layout istelf was already weird looking, like those duel master cards
>>
So, how exactly CAN anime Zarc be beaten? Real game Zarc can be kaju'd I don't think you can even kill it by battle
