And with this, Rituals were made great again!
The Real game may have been saved now but the Vidya is now DEAD
What's that? Now you need to use links to get more extra deck zones?
Leave it to me
Next batch of news when? The current batch answered some questions, but opened a lot more
So, I made a vid, explaining
What I thoughtwas Link SUmmoning, and the extra monster zone. Can you summon Exceed and synchro Monsters to that zone? Or am I tottally confused and it's used to summon only LINK monsters?
>Now there is a 6th zone, so it summons 5 tokens
>Use Tomahawk + 1 token to summon a Link 2
>Use the tokens to summon other 2 links.
>Use 3 links for Decode Talker.
Goddammit, that thing is going to be meta
Huh? I definitely don't mind Ono back at the helm but what does that mean for symphogear? Not too familiar with that seiyuu but they're pretty good as Rei in 3gatsu from last season so i've got good hopes there after the marvelous performance from Kensho
Lewding Yusaku is now mandatory.
Only ED monsters can go in the EM Zones.
That means you need to put this guy in the main EM Zone.
Which means the links you summon with him are useless until you get rid of him.
Also tokens aren't effect monsters, so you can't even summon Decode Talker with them.
Anon, you can use Tomahawk to summon a link. Thus if you summon a bunch of tokens, you can use it and a token to summon some other link
Also, only Decode Talker is the only one so far that specifies effect monsters, so you can use the remaining tokens to summon other links to THEN use those links to summon Decode Talker.
So, if I were to summon an XYZ monster by it's corresponding summoning mechanic, it'd go to the new zone, and I wouldnt be able to summon anything else from the extra deck?
the only way to get ED monsters into the monster zone is by reviving them or by link summoning, which lets you put ED monsters in the zones pointed to by the link monster.
Because this is a turbulent time and we have enough people crying "THE GAME IS OVER YGO IS DEAD" over actual problem without you being a flaming faggot and saying shit that will scare off more people.
Go fuck yourself.
Infernity is dead for good now.
>implying we'll ever get a girl character again
Why so serious?
Why do you care anyways, especially given that that anon was willing to give the show a chance even if Ono was the director.
People like (You) have always been making shit boring
I hope Arc-V being a big disappointment hasn't discouraged fanartists too much
>Trolls and shitposts
>Gets called out on it
>Calls people boring for calling him on his shit
Stop being a shit poster. Posts like yours is how false information gets passed around.
I doubt it. Fanartist don't care about popularity. If they like it, they'll draw it.
Yeah it's fun to do that and to let people live their delusions at least for a while. Ignorance is bliss, don't you know? This is 4chan. If you don't appreciate that, then you're free to fuck off to Leddits or Tumblr where they're strict business and autism, which fits (You) perfectly.
Be honest guys (who actually play the game), does this nerfing of Extra Deck methods and Pendulum actually buff Rituals and make them more useful now? Or will we have to wait until the game format changes to witness it for ourselves?
What is your (educated) prediction on Rituals in the new format?
They're still pretty slow, except if they have an engine like Neckroz. It's still better to just run a kozmo or monarch deck
hopefully the friend will actually be useful
>ARC-V is about to end

>Yuya asks Yuzu out

The sad part is that most of these things are so predictable, Ono could be fired, and they'd still happen.
>Doting personality when it comes to Yusaku aggressive and fiesty when it comes to anyone else and borderline yandere when someone insults or hurts Yusaku
You know you want it, like that girl from the twin tailed show 3 years ago
What's the cycle? One of each size?
????-Loli or G cups?
Dark Magicians are the new t1 Hotness. Rituals are still gonna rely on having been good cards to begin with, but decks that rely on Rituals will find themselves churning out their big plays a lot faster than a lot of other decks.
So, educated opinion is "They'll be faster because everything else is slow, but they still need to not be shit". Your Hungry Burger deck ain't gonna be topping anything. Relinquished might cause some salt, but he's still gonna die pretty quickly once the opponent gets their shit together and gets rolling.
At best you're getting time bought.
The thing they've done now is changed the game completely.
This isn't just an addition to the game like XYZ and Synchro which just sped up the game and caused huge powercreep but now you unironically have to run Link Monsters as a necessity and if I recall you are still limited to 15 monsters meaning a fair portion of those are going to have to be Links just to use the extra deck.
Combine that with the left-most and right-most spots in your magic and trap zone effectively becoming pendulum zones, it means Pendulum summoning sacrifices your ability to play spells and traps making Pendulum summoning much more awkward.
In theory traps should probably see more play in a slowed down meta that is provided by Links but I'm confident that as a community we'll find a way to break Link Summoning like we have everything else and powercreep will hit back almost immediately.
>you unironically have to run Links as a necessity
No you don't. Only if you want more than one ED-summoned monster out at a time, and we don't even know if that includes Face-up Pendulums.
>If I recall you still are limited to 15 so you're going to have to make a fair portion of those Links.
We don't know if the ED is getting expanded or not. Odds are in favor of it being expanded, but if it isn't most of your slots are likely toolbox shit anyway, so it shouldn't hurt you if you're not retarded. Learn to side or learn what's actually important to your deck's function.
>M/T Zones now also share space with P-Zones
Okay yeah this one kinda hurts most Pendulum-based decks out there right now. I really don't have a counter to this.
The P-zones are fine and is the most sensible change here, they acted as continuous spell cards effectively giving the decks that can swarm the fastest 2 extra spells which was badly designed in retrospect
Bishbaalkin is now scary for a similar yet completely different reason.
It's giving me a pitting feeling in my stomach.
I'm scared now that YuGiOh is going to ruin itself because Konami decided to change the game so radically.
But, on the other hand, I am excited to explore brand new cards and strategies
Yup, It's gonna be really said to watch Jaden,Yusei,Yuma and Yuya in new games now. Yuma would always start off with Utopia Lighting or Beyond Utopia, Yusei would manage at least Junk Warrior or Stardust Dragon, Jaden would always fuse on the first turn or Mask Change. Now, I'll not be surprised if all they do is set monsters and backrow
>Duel Masters ended with the protagonist getting married
Most decks bring out fields which are multiple extra deck monsters.
Things like Blackwings heavily rely on it and so forcing links just to get more space to syncho summon to bring out the Assault Blackwings for example has just gone straight to shit.
At this point I'm not even sure if you could get 3 Main Monster Spaces to even become open for synchros to commit to that level of summoning.
Extra Monster Zone one link, put a link behind that but then you've still only got two spaces from the left and right links of that second Link Monster meaning you're still short one space in theory meaning certain monsters can no longer be summoned or have to be nerfed in their effects if it requires X amount of monsters.
I hope she is like Harp Note
Fool! Main girl will be like Mayl
in b4 some old archetypes that rely completely on having multiple extra deck monsters on the field get some insane Link support with three arrows (enabling three extra deck monsters)
Such as for pic related and decks like it
Stop with waifu posting please.
Also I take all of them.
konami give me new amazoness support pls ;_;
Reminder that the anime hinted this was coming when we saw Ray defeat Zarc by fucking over 4 out of 5 existing special summons. What would Leo oyaji think?
Zarc should have used Rirtual.
>had a friend who bought into the roumored rule changes and bought FUCKING SIX ancient leafs around $20 each because he thought that card was going to be meta and over $100
>this gets announced
>friend was literally crying at the card shop
Zarc would have run Nekroz and not even just the standard deck either. They would have created even more hilariously broken cards just to spite the world.
He'd probably Djinn lock as well just to be a cunt.
You can't take both link slots, thankfully. You can only take one and then the opponent is forced to take the other.
If you could take both then you could effectively deny your opponent the ability to use the Extra Deck and steam roll them.
That's the problem, for several of the protagonist's decks require another of their choice of summoning method to come out. Yusei especially is killed by this, he can't summon formula Synchron while having Stardust Dragon already in the extra deck zone.
I want Fumina from Build Fighters Try but not shit harem bait at the end.
So basically a girl who loves dueling and tries to recruit Yusaku to her club and teach him. Yusaku knows how to duel but plays dumb due to wanting to live a quiet life. Yusaku has his alter ego who main girl is a fangirl of. Main girl is basically a Yugioh otaku with tons of cards and memorabilia in her room. She knows the lore for all the cards like Gagagigo and the Duel Terminal.
What I expect is a tsundere idol or some other shit.
Then an extra step is needed- take out opponent link monster and, or pendulum. Effectively, deny your opponent access to extra deck spam. I imagine most decks now will prioritise taking or denying link. Alternatively they work their way around this and spam main deck monsters.
That means Blue Eyes is still king.
>I imagine most decks will prioritize taking or denying link.
Literally all you have to do is swing into it. Other than Decode Talker (who is a 2300~3800 ATK monster), the strongest Link monster is a fucking 1900 ATK with nothing protecting it. If you negate the effect that makes it 1900, it goes down to 1400, making the NEXT strongest 1800 ATK.
You can kill this shit no problem with a single ED monster, and shouldn't have too much trouble killing it with a normal summon or a non-ED Special Summon.
I don't understand how people don't get this. It's JUST ANOTHER MONSTER. Links aren't some god mode card that you play and suddenly you've unlocked the power of the ancients. They fucking play Decode Talker and act like smug shit? Fucking BTH that guy. ALL of the Links worth putting in the original EM Zone are BTH targets.
I really wonder what was point of the WW engine if the new mechanic fucks it over so hard. Though. I guess this means Espirit birds get to have fun with a free Crystal Wing now.
DM is so centric on DM you only ever need one extra deck monster and everything else is just control plays with Dark Magician. It also has a super accessible Fairy Duster and even a quickplay nuke which means you get to shit on their defensive plays too.
Fucking DMfags and Duel Links killing the game.
The new FemC needs to not be a jobber, pick up Links fast and everything else and get a starter deck not to mention play an important part in defeating the villain and at worst whittle them to 500 LP.
And make sure seiyu does not take a year off to plan wedding.
To fuck with everyone, her archetype should be baseed on schoolgirls with extremely good links support so grown men are forced to play lolibait at the world tournament.
She should be a side tail pettanko who likes cuddling cute girls.
>The new FemC needs to not be a jobber, pick up Links fast and everything else and get a starter deck not to mention play an important part in defeating the villain and at worst whittle them to 500 LP.
Man, you're really desperate. Just hope for some nice fapbait for her like Asuka and Aki like every other sane person. You should know by now after six series that females never amount to anything in YGO
I dunno about the other two by name, but Harp Note was literally "What if Protoman was ALSO Roll", so she was not only not a jobber, but considered on par with Megaman and the Bass equivalent at their finest. A pity she didn't get much focus after the first game, but she did show up quite a bit.
I said that specifically for Links.
Synchro summoning is entirely different, all they need are levels. But with Links, you need to send them to the grave. Tokens don't go in the grave so your combo does not work. If the mechanic called for just using them as material like Synchros, then sure, but that doesn't apply here.
I get the feeling that people saying "DDD is dead because lel Links" have literally never played the deck with any real proficiency.
DDD is far from dead, don't you worry your pretty little contract-free head.
>xyz ultra neo ultimate XXXceed king of feral imp
>tfw the deck which features my cardfu is still viable
Jack is a rival character. Crow would be the best friend from 5Ds. I guess Sho/Kenzan would be from GX. Shark from ZEXAL. Gon from Arc-V.
Jou is light years better than all of them.
What about the lolis?
The lolis! The lolis!
Utility wire is okay. If SPYRAL were a better deck overall then maybe but as it stands a searchable pwwb isnt gonna cut it. I do admit tho wire is a step in the right direction.
They should just make the dad a normal parent or just say he's on an international business trip. None of that 'oh, what's up with his dad???' mystery only for him to be some kind of useless deadbeat who piddled away his time of absence
Best designed ace/starting boss I daresay!
Okay. I understand how this works but I don't understand how fusion and synchro are fucked because of it.
If you don't have a Link Monster in your deck you won't be able to summon more than one Synchro/Fusion monster onto the field. You'll almost always have only one occupying the Extra Monster Zone.
You're talking pretty big for someone with a mere 2300 attack points. I''ll end this so quick you don;'t need to blink. Odd Eyes Raging Dragon's effect, by detaching all units I can destroy all cards my opponent controls and gain 200 attack for each one.
Give it 3 years. By the next series we will go back to ED shenanigans and link summoning will be incorporated in the main zone just like pendulum.
Still trying to figure out why it wasn't

It could have been the perfect combination to OEPD and SVFD, what the fuck happened?
This should've been either a Fusion Pendulum or a pure effect Pendulum upgrade thus introducing a Scale-Change upgrade to Pendulum Summoning like what Xyz Change is to Xyz Summoning. That way Zarc could've been a red-colored card (like Slifer) AND a Pendulum since it was Integration Summoned and had red clouds and lightning in its summoning sequence.
>red cards never
But at least we got blue-colored cards that will actually be relevant in both the game and anime unlike Rituals...
There's ALWAYS a gaia for the new method. Hell, if I recall, the first fusion was a Gaia fusion, and the first Ritual was an offshoot of Gaia. The only time Gaia wasn't one of the first was for Xyz, and he eventually DID get one.
>Literally the deck that's hit hardest by the change.
I miss something?
It's based on like 3 different sentai, at least one of which had a 5 man squad ()
Even without getting a Yellow Layer and/or Black Layer. a Link Monster of
Alphan as Super Quantum White Layerwould be sweet.
Also if it turns out that cheating an Extra Deck monster out through a card effect (like Magnacarrier) gets around the Main Monster Zone limitations than Quantums aren't affected too badly and Turn 1 Magnus goes on unimpeded.
That doesn't excuse it, in fact it means there should've been one released alongside them... that is, if you're referring to the Gaia Chaos monsters released in the TCG version of DUEA. Those Gaia's were imports from the OCG's V Jump Pack 2013
triamid rock stun
>only need 2 slots for ED monsters (gorgonic guardian and trishula)
Not really. The hard part is still getting both Neos AND a Neo Spacian on board AND having Neospace up. Link Summoning doesn't help with that. Pendulum would, but there's not really any good Pendulum cards to run in Neo Spacians because they need a hell of a lot of draw/search power that just doesn't exist.
Top guy is clearly Yusaku's rival. The robot birds will be a good counterpart to the robot warriors and animals that Yusaku uses. He probably uses some boss-centric deck as a foil to Yusaku's Link-centric deck.
Orange-haired guy is probably the best friend. I dunno what's up with these clown things. Maybe he's the female lead's brother or something?
>still no visual of any other character besides Yusaku
I guess the PV in about a month is where that'll be
>Xiangkei and Xiangsheung Magicians
Well, I doubt Yuya's using them for Dark Rebllion and I really doubt he's using them for Rebellion Dragon and Raging Dragon, neither one of those cards will do much to Shun
Why, Why oh why oh why are they given Dennis even more cards? He's already got 13 unprinted, what's the point of more of them?
Also, notice how Gongenzaka didn't get shit like this, that means tomorrow night it's more or less confirmed he's not getting new pendulums nor is he getting a new synchro.
So, after Shun and Dennis, what's next? Is he going to duel Crow in the city?
Still no word on Yuzu either. She might not actually come back. Holy shit. all that eye fucking was for nothing! It's 5D's all over again! The only way this could get more disgusting is if Yuya really doesn't get anything new but more performapal garbage
>keikaku man gets one final showing
>his archetype is going to get reamed immediately afterwards with the rule changes
She'll probably be in the peanut gallery. Or the very last scene of the show are the bracelet girls arriving at their homes.
Fuck all three of you. Fuck Konami, Fuck VRains and fuck Ono. In my final act of spite, I hope the next heroine isn't a bombshell like Asuka and Aki. Hell,I hope she doesn't exist and Yusaku just has one guy friend like Johan or Syrus
I don't care about Yuzu but Yuya vs Reiji is pretty underwhelming for a last duel. They barely interacted or cared about each other. Yuya's whole goal was surpassing his father's entame. Dueling Reiji doesn't make sense. Especially since Reiji doesn't entame. Oh well, guess Yuya is finally beating Reiji.
Pretty sure people stopped caring the moment 115 happened.
In other words, this is basically asking them which would you like better as your last duel: the Zarc Jobfest or with EGAO Messiah.
There was a point in the series where ONE of Yuya's stated goals was to surpass Reiji. Reiji eventually revealed that he'd specifically engineered Yuya to want to surpass him, because then he got to see more Pendulum insanity.
Of course, this all died when Yuya's entire character became EGAO with every single secondary motivation dying when it wasn't directly relevant to the current conversation.
The ceremonial duel wasn't going to be that strong no matter what, even if Yuzu was the opponent. They'd have to make Yuya act like a total bimbo and refrain from going all out to make it somewhat fair.
Its just Arc-V being Arc-V. Payoff with no buildup. Like anyone is supposed to care just because Reiji has the destination of rival character, making this automatically important. What a joke.
Most casual decks can beat Yuya's deck, actually. You'd have to be running some DM-era full nostalgiafag retardation to actually lose to Yuya pretty often.
>But Yuya's running OEM with EMs
No, he's running a bunch of singletons with some moderately-related cards. Even with one side being 100% scripted and the other side being just playing normally, Yuya will die to any deck that so much as stares too hard at his board. He continually overextends, uses so little protection it's a wonder Yuzu's not pregnant, and doesn't have SHIT for his scales if they get popped.
Beating Yuya really isn't much of an accomplishment especially with the fact with him constantly almost losing if he never got an action card at the last second or anyone else being his meatshield.
Most people suspected Yusho to be the final duel and it worked thematically. Others wanted Yuzu. Zarc and Ray were also possibilities people mentioned. Nobody was hankering for Yuya vs Reiji. That shit is out of left field. Every other series had final duels that made sense. Arc-V is the first time it just feels like it doesn't even matter.
Anon, ARC-V is 100% plot driven even when the majority of duels end up pointless, character are reduced to plot devices, punching bags and meatshields for the sake of said mess of a plot.
Literally the moment Synchro ended, Yuya's character hit the reset button and Yuya/Yuzu became a fucking running gag it truly went incredibly downhill.
It honestly doesn't because literally everyone got ruined to the point of insanity. Just when you want ARC-V to end, it takes it time stretch out even more unnecessary crap just to irritate people.
No sorry but Yuya is garbage. He's a failure of a character and an even bigger failure of a protagonist.
The only duels with him that were even remotely engaging where the one where his opponent were doing all the work or he himself was being possessed. Regular Yuya is a boring piece of shit.
At the time, Synchro felt like it mattered, then we found out that it was basically a year-long filler arc. When it started, Xyz felt like it mattered, but then it was "look at all of these useless people that will never be relevant again!" featuring Edo from the Destiny An Heros series. When we first got to fusion...actually by that point it didn't really feel like it mattered anymore. Fusion was pretty shit from start to finish.
That's false. But the most you could probably ask from a Yugioh MC these days is to not be so terrible that they ruin every single duel they're in. For me it's passable enough as long as the opponent is doing a good show. Arc-V didn't really have good villains or opponents on the whole though
Literally, any previous arc becomes an afterthought thanks to the one after. Synchro made Standard an afterthought; XYZ/Fusion made Synchro an afterthought; Zarc in general made everything pointless including the whole Pendulum reveal.

Holy shit it's true
>Yuya vs Shinji was carried by Shinji
Agreed on the rest but Shinji is unironically a bad character. Paladin's summoning is like the only thing I could be bothered to remember from that duel
Yuya doesn't know how to do back and forth dialog with his opponent. He's incredibly self centered. In a good show that would bite him in the ass but in Arc-V it just causes everyone to kiss his ass.
>ZEXAL WAS the last good Yugioh
I will never trust Konami ever again
Yoko was a good character and her bancho backstory was interesting, but holy fucking shit was she bad at delivering a message.
The whole point of her duel was to make sure that Yuya wasn't a merciless killer and remembered that there were times to smile. He COMPLETELY took that shit the wrong way and the writing proceeded to forget that he was supposed to have MERCY, not just blindly go EGAO and solve his problems that way.
Yuya's parents had good messages but they were fuck stupid parents.
Shinji was annoying but at least he never changed sides due to plot magic, like how Kaito, Serena, and Sora all changed heart due to bullshit reasons.
I just rewatched the duel and Shinji was pretty good in that duel (even in the Tsukikage duel), the only good Yuya part was the part leading up to EnPal's summon. He may be a whiny edgelord without the edgy charm of the likes of Shun, but he put out good duels for what it's worth
Shinji's VA was good, and Shinji was consistent, but the duel itself was complete trash.
>I'm gonna sit on this trap card and just keep ending your BP 3 times in a row until I get a boss worth a damn.

>Welp my boss is hitting a stone wall. Who knew that my opponent could ALSO have battle-related negation?!
>Oh shit I just took an asspull to the face!
Albeit an amazing asspull.
Can someone remind me why Shinji is so hated? Apparently even youtube commenters and others dislike him... he never stood out to me in any negative way except when he thought Yuya's victory was rigged by Jean. Is it because he bitches about the tops all the time, then again dont all the commons do the same?
ITT: Characters that should have had at least a 20 minute screen time in a 1 vs 1 duel.
I will start
Partly just memeing, and partly him being a good representation of one of Arc-V's more noticeable problems: unengaging side character nobodies who are basically time fillers/distractions that keep getting screentime here and there, despite not really going anywhere substantial.
Arc V threads one year ago
Boy howdy, that Yuya cosplayer was pretty insane.
>Crow replaces Gongenzaka
>be the one of the only character to never fall for the EGAO meme
>is hated by everyone
really made me think
Shinji was outlined on a regular basis as just being a hypocrite. Kinda like how "new wave" feminism isn't about equal rights, but about how men are inferior or some drivel, Shinji is never actually interested in things getting better, he just wants himself and the Commons to be the guys on the top for once. He also tried to scapegoat Ninjabro in their duel, making him seem like a dog of the Tops, although admittedly he sounded remorseful about that and knew what he was doing, not to mention that played straight into The Keikaku (tm) anyway.
I think the point that most people started hating Shinji, though, was this little exchange before his duel with Yuya:
>Yuya: "We don't have time to be dueling. I need to go out and look for Yuzu! She just crashed into a building! I gotta see if she's alright!"
>Shinji: "No, Yuya, we need to settle things between us now! I need to spread the message of the Commons!"
>Yuya: "So you don't care about her?"
>Shinji: "She's just another sacrifice. If you want to complain, then do it in a duel!"
>If you want to complain about dueling instead of looking for your waifu, who literally everyone in this building knows is your entire reason for existence, then do it by dueling me.
>be the one of the only character to never fall for the EGAO meme
He was fist pumping for Yuya during his duel with Jack only one scene cut later after (presumably) talking to Shun
Well, Zarc actually liked the universe, though. He got his rocks off on people seeing how strong he is. The fact that the best way to show that off happened to be blowing the universe up was just a coincidence.
It's literally just people just being people (aka hypocrites picking favorites). For example, look at this response >>153606600
If you're looking at the merits of a character, then by that definition Dennis was a terrible human being who green lighted a genocide and was a backstabbing traitor while Sora/Yuri were psychopathic children who got off on murdering people. Of course, Dennis gets pardoned for his crimes because he has charm while Sora and Yuri get off because since they're shota/cute girly boys. Shinji has none of those so people won't pardon his flaws in character
>For example, look at this response
>This guy is a hypocrite for stating shit that Shinji actually did and explaining why the fanbase has hated him.
Hey, buddy, can you not pretend you know my opinions? Thanks.
>new Yu-Gi-Oh! mechanics
Nips on suicide watch.
Konami's going to give a shit for like 2 months and then we'll be back to where it was beforehand.
The only thing this ACTUALLY changes is that you need to make sure your zones are marked on your mat. If they're not then fucking get a new mat or whip out a sharpie.
>K-Money's making us all buy all new mats for the new rules.
>Also the new rules just killed like 90% of our stock.
They're basically echoing the doomsaying of most people that are also doomsaying, except at least they have a point of needing to worry about overhead.
I should have clarified that you personally might not be a hypocrite, you might be I don't know, but the viewership at large picks favorites and forgives their flaws no matter how bad (like Shunfags or Dennisfags or Yurifags) while shitting on Shinji or Yuya or Leo for their flaws as examples. But that's why I said it's just people being people (human nature) to ignore flaws of their favorites, just look at Hillary shills and Trumptards and the shit they're willing to forgive because they love their heroes
Man, that fucking duel with Shinji. I don't like him, but it's amazing how he had the Commons on his side through his words and expected Yuya to counter it with his own philosophy. Nope just use some combo that he'll never use again and keep your mouth shut the entire duel.
But I like Dennis because he's horrible.
Some people seem to confuse if a fictional character is good/bad with whether or not they're good/bad as a moral person. Even though there are plenty of likable fictional characters who were terribly flawed in their moral choices as people.
I would argue Dennis isn't that good as a character overall. Not because he did bad things, but because he didn't really get the screentime to flesh out any kind of substantial narrative for himself, and made his grand exit after dueling another barely-there character he had never talked to on-screen before.
Ah, I can get that angle. And yeah, just like most characters in Arc-V, Dennis doesn't really get enough screentime/interaction with other characters for his character to be REALLY great.
But I guess I tend to judge things more for their overall potential instead of the actual execution. Dennis appeals to me because his character has a lot of potential, and that does get used in fanworks. For example there are some pretty darn good doujins exploring Dennis's character, especially when it comes to things the show kinda glosses over.
Pic related, great stuff about Dennis reflecting upon stuff in Academia after the Xyz invasion.
>he's a good character in my fanfiction
Potential means almost jack shit. Execution is the actual, real legwork that makes something worth watching and remembering. A piece of coal has the potential for being compressed into diamond, but it's just plain coal and will stay coal without that process.
It's still up to the source material to sell the potential to me and make me care about the character.
I just like Dennis.
I want to fuck Harp Note
>He fucking takes fandoms seriously
Domain will still be clutch, people are gonna be using links and other extra deck methods 90% of the time, especially as konami produces more broken link monsters. The fact that it's slower now is very good for monarchs
CHAOS MOTHER FUCKING DRAGONS BITCH. OUR TIME IS NOW.
>D/D/D gets hit the hardest by links
>He doesnt know
Cyberdark Impact was ahead of its time.
Whatever comes after VRAINS will make LV monsters meta. Calling it now.
>Revived ED monsters can go anywhere
>Possibility to use any monster on the field for Link summon
Basically, if you open with Ragnarok, Swirli slime and anything else for a monster, you can summon Ghenghis and two monsters in your grave then summon Decode Talker without even using your normal summon. That IF you don't plan on using other links or stuff like that.
Also, if you have a current ED mosnter in your sole ED zone, you can use it to summon a link and free up space as well. Worst that can happen to DDD is if Links don't have their own extra deck or if extra limit isn't upgraded
Pretty sure it's him as a trap. But thats not the case with every piece of art. Theres some genderbender out there. Not this time though.
