Ono has a small dick.
So, I’ll try to predict some things about Vrains.
>Our protag may begin the anime by knowing about the world of duelling, but not showing much interest, as he is close minded to it, and prefer to do his hacker thing
>He’ll be faced with a situation where he needs to duel; maybe one of his hacker friends got tangled up with someone and he needs to “Take a step forward and try”, or maybe that little gremlin thing will appear, as Yusaku is hacking in a shady turf of the net, and lure him into a situation that is only solvable by duelling, being like a fairy that grants the hero his initial power if he follows it
>being lured into a duel by the spirit of Decode Talker, Yusaku will begin to open up and enjoy the ride, as it teaches him how to play
>After that he will be a good hacker-duelist that fights bad hackers and people who threat the cyber space, and he’ll protects the cyber-space (sort of like a forest guardian)
>he’ll probably be very discrete about his card game skills in the real world
>he’ll probably have a goofy, excitable friend who knows he is batman The Playemaker, or he’ll make this friend maybe by being a transfer student and the goofy guy finding out
>the little fairy thing will probably be a silly character too, and may comically argue with the friend
>the love interest will also find out that he is the playmaker and will be a “supportive” type of girl (kinda like Aki or Anzu)
>Yusaku will slowly become a public figure, being the face of a hero of the virtual world, as his friends kinda promote him, making him popular, even though he doesn’t know how to handle it at first
>it’s a fair assumption of mine to believe that an episodic format where he meets certain celebrities and fight crime with them will happen
>he’ll probably be dragged to a tournament like arc, where the prize is related to protecting the virtual world
>one of the celebrities, or a couple of them, will be evil and trick Yusaku into thinking they’re buddy-buddy
>that’ll kinda hurt Yusaku, so he’ll react in a mix between Yuma’s disbelief that others could be evil and Yusei’s value of bonds, but in a much more toned down way
>the villain, at first will be some company in the real world who wants to, either destroy the virtual world, or control it, and Yusaku will confront them about it, as soon as he plays scooby-doo to find them
>but then the villains will say “no, we’re not the villains, you see. We were trying to save the real world from the threat of an unstable AI that has been developing in the virtual world. You must stop it, Yusaku”.
Those are the assumptions are surer about, and the next ones are ones I’m iffy:
>he’ll have a grandpa that’s a computer genius, and maybe (and I’m stretching) he’ll take care of plants – don’t ask why.
>his grandpa will want him to try new things in the beginning, even though to no avail
I would usually ignore posts like these, but a lot of it does seem typical for animated shows with a cape/double identity MC.
Might be too much to ask, but I'd like it if the inevitable fluff or one-off villain episodes are actually ok watches on their own, like the Shark vs manga guy episode. Instead of just being throwaway garbage
Source: your ass
There are more creative ways to bump the thread. I'm not sure this one will survive to the end, though
But how can that be true when he brought peace to the 4 dimensions? Kind of. With Reira/Ray taking the lead. Well, he helped a little.
I never want to see smile world or hear "dueru de egao" for the rest of my life
Ok, time to decide. Who you think, and believe to be most likely, final reincarnation of Ray?
Don't forget the rival character.
He'll be a cool headed perfect e-celeb who never loses. Then Playmaker will face him somewhere early in the series and win starting up an obsession by rival to figure out who he is for like half the series. The loss also brings him shame as he starts to become less popular while over the course of the series eventually learns the importance of friendship and honoraburu dueru. Little brother or sister morality pet necessary
And as per usual fare, his story will probably be more interesting than Yusaku's
They didn't care anymore. After synchro's climax was obviously fucked with at last minute to keep roger's machine from doing anything in spite of Roger saying it would destroy the city five seconds before, everyone just stopped doing their jobs and allowed the show to fall into shit.
>As per usual fare, his story will probably be more interesting than Yusaku's
Why is this always the case with YGO?
Why are protags typically the least interesting characters story-wise? It's not like you can't have a non-standard protagonist and still make a profit.
Ono bounces back like a champ!! After suffering a big defeat last week, he closes the gap between Arc-V and the black box! That's right ladies and gentlemen! We are just ONE episode away from total Top 10 domination. A feat never before achieved in anime history. With only 3 more episodes left can Ono pull it off one last time? We must believe in him!
Current Top 20:
1. ARC-V 143 - 3.2%
2. ARC-V 141 - 4.3%
3. ARC-V 142 - 4.7%

Is it really something worth caring about when it's obvious no one working on the project cares anymore? Like it'd be funny if they were trying and still made a pile of shit. But, anyone can make the absolute worst shit if they're not putting in the effort to make it appealing or consistent. And these fucks certainly aren't.
>With only 3 more episodes left can Ono pull it off one last time?
Hold my beer
Ono wanted Arc-V to be the best from the bottom and he did it, the absolute mad man.
Ono is a genius and should be praised, at least Arc-V will stay in the records as the best 'worst' anime.
>Start off as a semi threatening villain in a show that severely needs villains
>Beat a few named characters and is knowing for killing off a whole division of rebels
>Lose to main character
>Immediately fall for his dick for no reason and completely give up on your ideals
Literally a harem character.

Yuya vows to use the power of the Four Dragons to make everyone smile. As if responding to his wish, the Four Dragons gradually drive Jack into a corner. However, even when his battle against Jack is over, Zarc’s soul still remains in Reira, who still can’t smile. Yuya realizes that he still lacks something.

>Yuboys disappear again
>still no bracelet girls
>still no bracelet girls
I've already given up.
Not just on Arc-V but on the franchise entirely of having girls do anything at all. This was really the last chance, everything was there. They could have had a decent subplot there had they not aborted it
Obviously a flashback. Everyone else is in real time, since Jack and Yuya are dueling on a dimension highway, it means everybody in all dimensions can see them, but of course only the parents and the kids get to speak, Crow is probably a flashback, if he were there in person his 3 kids would be speaking,too. That's how we knew he'd been revived for the Zarc duel, his brats were in the cast list.
I seriously don't understand why you people hate Crow so damn much. If he weren't a legacy character he would be my favourite of ARC-V mainly because he is the type of person who would take a bullet in your place. He is that much of a bro. Stop being so butthurt over nothing
>Yuboys disappear again
ONOOO FUCKING DAMMIT ONLY 3 EPISODES LEFT AND STILL NO YUS TALKING LIKE IN THE MANGA? WHAT THE FUCK
This is why we'll never get Sound Duel 4. Thanks fucking nips
Apparently an episode of one show broadcasted with a video feed that wasn't working. So the entire episode was just audio and a black screen
Crow is bland as hell and steals screentime from people who need it. He had no reason beating Shun back during the Friendship Cup. The only reason he did was due ot favoritism. Shun losing to Crow added nothing to the story at all. Sawatari randomly turning into a Crow shill that believes everything will be better if Crow was there was forced. Then Crow getting uncarded randomly, teaming up with Sawatari and being the one to damage Zarc AND get him flustered was pure bullshit. Crow and Jack are what happens when someone is allowed to fellate themselves on screen.
>I seriously don't understand why you people hate Crow so damn much
He's not interesting
He's never been interesting and there's literally a million other characters who could be in place of him and not just here, but in 5Ds too. I don't like Crow because I don't think a single thing about him at all yet they keep having him be a thing anyway
Crow was responsible for side lining 3 characters in 5D's. It's not a surprise why he's maligned.
>The only good thing out of BB was carding Crow and they uncarded him few eps later
Who is best Yuya and why is it Yugo?
God Arc-V just keeps finding ways to piss me off. I hate this show so much. I don't think I will ever rewatch any part of it again after it ends. Please show a VRAINS PV in this episode as a consolation.
You know when you really think about it
I mean, seriously, really think about it
The idea that an entire rivalry and conflict was started because a guy's name sounds like "Fusion" and literally nothing else is kind of fucking retarded and should have been the first sign
Yuto vs Yugo: A cautionary tale that teaches kids the importance of being polite and getting people's names fucking right.
I think about them in Yuya's head:
>Oh, so your name is Yugo. I get it
>OkAY penDULUM you sWUNg HIS WAY NOOOW You'LL SWInG MY WaY!
>I'LL USE stARgAZER and timegAZER to set the pENDULUM scAle!
who the fuck thought this english dub was a good idea? Why does Gon sound like he goes muddin'?
Yu-Gi-Oh dubs have been shit ever since 4Kids stopped doing them
I mean, they technically haven't been "good" since GX but I at least used to think the voice actors were capable. Now they can't even get that part right
Yuri being the best Yuya was a more consistent theme
Like holy fuck, I know I'm gonna get "muh nostalgia fag" trash but why the fuck can't they get the voice right anymore? I mean Yugi's voice did sound a little too young compared to the jap version but it was 100x better than the trash we have now.
Can we please PLEASE just have one season where the MC doesn't have some kind of stupid one word drive? The only tolerable one of these was Judai's because it was used as character development
Zexal II's serious parts are way too underrated
I wish Yuma's deck had the ability to search Rank up spells because Numberon Force and Astral Force are some annoying as fuck top decks. Still, how dickish is that with the new rules Yuma cannot summon his own hopes?
>mfw Yuma actually holding off the Hopes with nothing but Gagaga Cowboy and Gagaga Samurai
The new protag looks way too awkward for me, also his hair is way too close to Yuma's.
Not to mention he isn't even cute in a "I wanna put my penis inside that boipucci" kind of way. He just looks like a fag.
I just don't like how sloppy Yuya looked.
The first 3 have this stylish and mature look to them, even Judai.
Yuya not only looks way younger when he should be around the same age Judai was on the first season, but the baggy pants (that look like mad shit alone) just look outright bad combined with that plain shirt, not to mention those huge rollerblades. He's a mess.
>Tfw we thought the Interdimensional War in Arc-V was related to Zexal's ending
>They could have lost this final battle together with the Numeron Code, explaining how they couldn't fight in the war and Heartland would get ruined
>Dylan loses his shit because there's no, date I say, bracelet girls or Yu boys besides Yuya in 147
Bravo Ono and Kamashiro, you managed to piss off and garner the hatred of the most optimistic (former) fan ARC-V ever had
Finally, someone sees it. The baggy cargo pants are utter shit, while the duality in his hair just looks awkward as fuck. It would've been better if red was on top and green was on bottom, or if the shades of green/red were more subtle so they don't contrast because it looks awkward and sloppy.
Yuto, Yugo, and Yuri on the other hand are very-well designed. Such a shame they got screwed over for Egao Yusei
Fuck I'm a tard, meant this >>154453928 (((You))) .for
Deleted it, just refresh! SHUT IT DOWN... now THIS is a conspiracy
No, I'm not Dylan. Not everything is a conspiracy or a false flag, (((You))) mong
>couple hundred views a video
>maybe a thousand on a good day
Stop trying to inflate how popular you are, fag. Might as well get a trip at this point if you're going to fag up the thread.
>m-maybe if I use the three ((())) he'll t-think I'm a r-real 4channer!!!
You're so new it hurts.
>all this damage control
You'd have done better staying quiet, Dylan or whatever you are called.
Aki was a woman in YGO. She's doomed from the get-go without BUY BLACKWINGS being a thing or not.
I blame Crow for the twins shafting, not some cowtits people wanted to be Rey Scarlet
>Aki was a woman in YGO. She's doomed from the get-go without BUY BLACKWINGS being a thing or not.
The women are doomed forever thing didn't really become a thing until 5Ds though. That was the first attempt at making a girl really plot relevant and then they dropped the ball so it became a thing that girls will never do anything
Zexal just exacerbated it and Arc-V pushed it to the maximum fuck you level
>he's actually going full sperg
Holy shit Dylan all you had to do was not respond.
>Zarc’s soul still remains in Reira, who still can’t smile
Is this the dumbest fucking plot device or what
So what kinda girl are you hoping for in Vrains? Asua and Aki level sexy, Kotori and Yuzu level cute or Anzu level bland?
Also, since Yuma ended his show and manga with losing Utopia do you think, if he were to appear in a crossover movie that he'd still use Utopia Zero or just regular ole Utopia? He might be the only protagonist to canonly lose his ace in both incarnations of his story, even his D-Team Zexal counterpart lost Utopia
The staff went overboard with the whole EGAO thing.
It was okay when it was Yuto's last words but forcing it down on everyones throat and killing off characters who didn't follow it was just stupid.
I can't stand you fags saying Utopia. It's Hope. HOPE.
Remember when Arc-V was good? Why did it have to end this way?
Because it couldn't follow its own damn ideal of swinging back when the going gets though. I swear to god, Ono.
I remember that one anon even wrote a giant text about why that happened. It boiled down to the writers being suicidal japanese slaves.
Ono only gave it his all because of his love of 5D's. He needed a big intro and them went all out shilling who he could in Synchro arc.
After that, since he only cares about 5D's, he didn't give a damn anymore except if he could give his precious characters the spotlight
>Why did it have to end this way?
They didn't know what they were doing and didn't have the resources to even pretend they did because of DSOD
In short, they bit off more than they could chew
Wait, Zarc is inside Riera? And why did Riera become a babby? And wasn't Reira supposed to be Ray instead? And why do they need to make it smile, will it turn into Dragon Zarc and kill everyone if it doesn't?
I haven't seen any of the episodes after Reira gets possesed by Ray (that was too much stupid for me, I just quit), do they explain any of this?
Jesus H. Christ
It's a pendulum, anon.
Arc-V is bad. And at the same time, it is not
I would like to go to the Yugo dimension.
>all of a sudden no one is talking about that retarded youtuber shilling here after he posted a lewd and got ban
And he was pretending it was a conspiracy that he was shilling his trash video.
holy jesus christ that voice
When Arc-V ends Ono will never be able to hurt Gongenzaka again. He'll finally be at peace
Ono confirmed for black hearted evil. At first I thought he was a brave hearted hero trying his best with with what he was given, instead he captured us when he could of set us free eons ago.
Fujo hereyour taste is shit m8 and the only cute Yu is Yugo.
>Yugo took those shorts of and fugged Yuzu's wet body while smelling her long hair while Yuya jerked of to thoughts of her pity sucking him in the bathroom school
Childhood friend NEVER win.
please kill yourself
>Dark Side of Dimensions Project Status: Encoding (ETA: Sunday morning Eastern time)
The wait is almost over.
Yuya a shit.
Of all MC Yusei is the superior fap material.
>tfw we are never going to se Asuka again
A girl who isn't there when she's not needed. Like Yusaku's school friend who's mostly just seen in school scenes. They should stop pretending and just not bother if she's not going to be important to anything.
>Asuka and Rin will never vilate Yugo as payback for jobbing them
>Yuri will never become the plaything of two busty beauties
ONE. JOB, Ono

No, you need to sit the fuck down. Egao is legitimately the most annoying and obnoxious item I've ever encountered in a shounen. I sit through a lot of retarded shit in anime, but not this.
Kattobingu wasn't good or anything, but it was ultimately just a nonsensical way of saying the usual shounen
>I'm never going to give up!!!!
All Yugiohs before Arc-V presented the main conflict as being resolvable as long as the top bad guys in charge are taken out in a duel, like the Dark Signers. Kept things simple for the capabilities of a Yugioh anime. Arc-V instead relies on changing the minds of the antagonists and the large groups around them to fix the conflict.
How EGAO brainwashes not only antagonists but also entire groups and populations to resolve the problem of the arc is actually infuriating. It's not just catchphrase, it's a free pass to end a problem in the most lazy and unsatisfying way possible.
Geez, anon, nobody asked for a fucking rant, you could said that EGAO is self rightous bullshit and left it at that like everybody else. Arc-V isn't worth getting triggered over and neither will Vrains, because you know there's gonna be some bullshit in there, especially with a Kirito lite like character like Yusaku
It seems someone is begging to be punished
>No Asuka raping Chazz
>No Asuka raping her brother
>No Asuka raping Yuri
>No Asuka raping Shun
I honestly don't like that theres no actual explanation to why egao is the solution to everything.
The whole making "Reira smile" thing is just stupid, even for Yugioh standards, and noone even bothers to question it at this point.
Act rebellious again and you and your sisters will be in your birthday clothes
*penguin noise* *penguin noise*
Boku no sutando da: Banana Heddo!
Is it bad that I want Jack's level 12 to suck out of spite? I know this match tonight is gonna be shit because we won't see the four dragons until the last 5 minutes. Do I dare to hope for a Performapal tuner?
Rival named Primetime when?
>Yuya finally getting a magician fusion
Lancer dragon was ugly as fuck.
Hopefully a pendulum fusion, while at it.
Either DM or GX. 5D's had major production difficulties, ZEXAL was considered childish by some while others were pissed at the lack of 5D's and Synchro stuff. ARC-V is just a basket of deplorable writing.
Duel Monsters for me but that's probably just nostalgia. I loved the Battle City tournament to death. After that ended it kinda fell off imo. But I didn't really see much of season 5 so I don't know for sure.
Aster Phoenix from GX appears with a completely different personality and after that everyone gets retarded and do dumb things aside Crow and Jack, who for convenient reasons return from the synchro dimension and may even die to be resurrected to wank 5Ds dick
Arguably ARC-V, mainly because compared to the others it cannot stand out on it's own and that's due to the large amounts of nostalgia pandering, favoritism and laziness held by the director and head writer who dislikes the concept of the show.
I guess DM just by the sheer number of fans in both the east and west. After that it depends on where you are. If you're in the west it'll be 5Ds. If you're in the east it will probably be GX or ZEXAL. Pretty much both sides agree on Arc-V being the worst. There is tons of hate from both the east and west.
This guy here >>154477161
Let me just start off by saying I thought 5D's was super silly but I loved the fuck out of the synchro arc in ARC-V. After the synchro arc shit just got old as fuck. Duels stopped being fun or interesting and the whole smile shit got turned up to 11. The xyz mini-arc was just terrible and some of the most boring yu-gi-oh I've ever seen. The fusion arc which was suppose to be this epic final thing turned into this super rushed bullshit that we got. Reiji not getting the spotlight more really sucked as well since Yuya badly needed someone to be his rival and someone who he can try to beat. I'm trying my hardest to avoid spoilers right now so forgive me for being vague.
I think it was considered to be Zexal when it was running, especially in it's first season but I think a lot of that was because it was in comparison to 5Ds.
Once Arc-V finishes, I'm pretty sure it's going to be that. Because Arc-V has no nostalgia points like the first two series does and falls a lot harder than 5Ds ever did. It has no quality or even story increase either like Zexal did. Lastly the characters are fucking boring so it doesn't even have that going for it. At least for Zexal's credit they made plenty of characters memorable
I really want Vrains to be good or I'll even take decent at this point because I don't want to start a spiral of the series getting worse
>but I loved the fuck out of the synchro arc in ARC-V
Please tell me you loved it when it was airing, but not anymore?
It literally LITERALLY does not have to do with barely anything that happens in the story and practically everything about it is irrelevant to the entire series as whole minus the legacy characters. It solely exists to keep Yuya and Yuzu apart and the rest is garbage
This most likely has to be Starving Venom and that magician likely has an effect that lets it fusion. Still, we have to wait and see. If it's a fusion magician I'll be ultra mega pissed off because that one anon is gonna come in here and kick my ass and Yuya will now have a total of 8 different fusions to choose from.
Don't you know, Arc-V hasn't been in the business of doing what people want for 2 years running. Why the hell would it change course now? Your only hope tonight should be that Ono keeps enough of 5D's fetish in his pants not to have the crimson dragon cameo again
Well NOT summoning the dragons would be the actual disappointment at this point. Also, Fusion has always been more of a performapal thing. Magician fusion has as much of a chance as a performapal synchro or xyz
It starts boring, very boring (quiz guy, food guy) then shit start to happening, partially relevant characters start to "die", traitors killing the main team, brothers swearing revenge, the evil guys showed their power with style and the main plot avatar-like show up, plus the openings gaves us a lot of hype.
And then XYZ happens, a whole season of ten or less episodes and everyone after that became irrelevant, that includes the evil guys.
>then shit start to happening, partially relevant characters start to "die", traitors killing the main team, brothers swearing revenge, the evil guys showed their power with style and the main plot avatar-like show up
Sounds way exaggerated, almost obscenely so
>the evil guys showed their power
Anon, even back then people thought the obelisk force were jokes because they had to gang up on people 3 or more on 1 just to win their duels. They almost got ass fucked by Teppie and Michi alone if it weren't for their ridiculously over powered trap card, the same goes for barret, Reji shit on him and the only reason why Yuya lost to him is because once again, the guy had ridiculously broken cards. The only real fair match they had was against the Junior youths, it was fair, but the youths obviously had never worked as a team before and since they were Standard duelists running things like Perfectly Ultimate Great Moth and Reji set them up to die anyway it makes the bad guys look even more pathatic if people like are the only ones they can beat down fairly.
The most insulting thing about that was the guy who played spellbooks did the worst when that deck with no banlist would of shit all over the Obelisk Force, did he brick? Finally, Yusho's shitty cards beat the strongest commander in the Academia's army. These guys were a joke and They still never told us how Leo got these morons to fight and die for him without solid proof as to what he was promising.
it never really went anywhere. It hyped up the whole Zarc plot from the beginning and Academia and Yuri too and they all ended up being shit (rip Yurifags). It started at the end of Synchro when they cockblocked the zarc fusion and I believe that was the first episode was a really shit rating on niconico and then it snowballed from there. Everything was shit.
I don't know. The fact that this card is a quick-play means you could summon your pendulum monsters back and if you're really lucky you could play it before your opponent could summon a monster. Sure your opponent will gain LP, but if they have no monsters then it won't really matter.
what the fuck was the significance behind this card or any of Yuya's cards besides his dragons? He fucking pulled most of his new cards out of his ass
I still have no idea if it's suppose to be Yuya's answer to Judai's Divine Neos, Yusei's Shooting Quasar or whatever final Utopia form Yuma has.
But seriously can someone tell me what Utopia's final form is
Many consider Utopia Beyond to be the final evolution for Utopia.
Utopic Dragon is related, and used Utopia Roots as a Xyz material but it is more or less supposed to be the Boss monster for the Number archetype, rather than the Utopia archetype. Same deal with Utopia Kaiser.
Whoa, so this the power of rituals.
I still find it strange how people complain about links and how anyone who defends them are "metafags"
I found a way to get multiple extra deck monsters on the field without needing to spend my shekels on links;
And I run odd eyes.
I'm not sure what tier it is in but it definitely isn't part of the meta. But regardless I love the archetype too much to just abandon it next format.
especially since the anime gave us a main deck foolish burial with a decent body, summoning gravity dragon is just going to be easier
>Be a ritualfag
>The Monkey's Paw allows you to make a wish
>"The blue cards must be relevant again"
Gee Crow, How come your creator lets you have TWO shows?
>"I just want a Deck Master Archetype"
>NOW YOU'RE WHOLE EXTRA DECK HAS A SUPER SPECIAL AWESOME MONSTER ZONE! ISN'T THAT GREAT!? OH AND NOW HERE'S A HALF ASSED COMBINATION OF XYZ AND FUSION WITH RITUAL'S COLOR SCHEME, ENJOY!
Darkest timeline Incoming.
In the best timeline, the Xyz method never happened.
Would you forgive Arc-V if Yuzu kisses Yuya or Sound Duel 4 gets released
This was a semen demon. Say some farewell words to her.
I wish she had more screentime and relevancy.
Seeing the Ninjabros reunited made me smile for the split second they appeared.
