LADIES AND GENTLEMAN
Episode 5: 鳴動のスリーカウント – Meidō no Surī Kaunto
(The Resounding Three-Count)
GO carries out his Duel in a manner similar to Pro-Wrestling, using Dueling as a means to entertain the audience. Playmaker seems to be interested in this playstyle, which is different from his calm and calculated playstyle. As if acknowledging GO Onizuka’s Dueling, Playmaker summons Decode Talker, despite taking a huge amount of damage. And thus, the two’s ace monsters clash!

SD32-JP032 リコーデッド・アライブ Recoded Alive
(1) Target 1 Link 3 Cyberse Link Monster you control or have in your GY; banish it, and if you do, Special Summon 1 “Code Talker” monster from your Extra Deck.
(2) If you do not control a monster in the Extra Monster Zone: You can banish this card from your GY, then target 1 of your banished “Code Talker” monsters; Special Summon it.
What? I hate you guys because your bullshit killed my fun on YGOpro. these new rrules completely fucked up my character decks. Do you realize how difficult it is to summon a shooting star dragon now or even pendulum summon in general? for fucks sake only my judai,yugi and yuma decks still play as they should.
If it was so shit why nerf it for your piece of shit links? Why make not a single good synchro for 10 fucking years besides Crystal Wing who dies to Lighting anyway? Answer me that? Was Synchro summoning trash,too you duel link playing sellouts?
Then call Konami the piece of shit company that it is for not being able to figure out how to implement a new mechanic without nerfing all the old ones.
>What? I hate you guys because your bullshit killed my fun on YGOpro.
That's your own fault for being a manchild who still plays the card game.
I hope Duel Links Fucks you even more
>Was Synchro summoning trash,too you duel link playing sellouts?
Personally i love Synchro. Could care less about Pendulum but I genuinely believe XYZ killed Yugioh. Still can't wait for all summoning to come to Duel Links. DOWNLOAD DUEL LINKS OR FUCK OFF OF MY GAME
No but I was told to stop calling them or they would seek legal action against me, honestly, I dare them,too. I'll sue them for the pain and suffering they've caused me with their bullshit, I've been dreaming of killing people ever since these changes and it's only gotten worse
Come on anon, it's not the end of the world. Look at the bright side, at least there's still the Speed Duel format which is getting more and more popular
It's pretty tame compared to Naoki's design. He looks like an actual pig. Intentionally ugly as sin designs have only become more frequent in Yugioh
Same here brother. Can't wait for tonight's mantanience to end so i can keep playing
No, they could just recycle designs if they needed to or straight up steal them from other anime. Sometimes random bg characters look more handsome than the intentionally ugly side/main characters.
They just choose to make abominations like Sam entirely on purpose
OTANOSHIMI WA KORE KARA DA
I miss Yuya's voice saying that line
>"Into the VRAINS!"
How bad do yo think Aoi wants it?
I mean just by singing and dancing she can't be sexually satisfied, right?
I mean fuck, she wants it so bad she's dripping juices with every fucking step she takes.
She wants that playmaker dick so bad.
I mean really really bad.
The moment she saw Yusaku and how big his dick was she can't stop thinking about him.
She probably dreams and about tying him up, mouting and wrapping herself around his dick and ride that thing like cowboy on crazed bull. Screaming, moaning with joy with every single motion, juices would swoosh up and out, and with her moans and pants being ever so quick she gets light headed, yet her incredible lust for dick doesn't satiate.
She'd kiss his nipples and lips too but she can't stop moaning and screaming like the dirty fucking slut that she is. She'd lean in only to be taken back by the intense sexaul pleasure and only keep riding, screaming and moaning, digging her fingernails into his back.
The intense pleasure would only be matched by her urge for his semen. She rides even faster in dire hopes for that semen quicker. Yet being human she feels the urge to enjoy the sex yet her desrie for semen may indeed rival her very primal instincts. Playmaker being the alpha chad that he is doesn't cum easily and make Aoi beg for his semen however her pleads get muffled by her screams and moans as she cannot stop indulging in the pleasure of playmaker's dick. Until finally she cums for nth time and finally passes out.
One day she will get that semen but until then she will dream on.
INTO THE VRAINS!!!
>3 fucking turns with barely any play each turn
>Ignis comment at every single thing to make looks like something happening
Speed duel is a mistake
The "speed duel" when they start the duel is lacking. It feels short and with no impact. They either need to add another another phrase like Acceleration in riding duels or say the duel part with more oomph.
>all those link monsters with bottom markers that will be useless if Konami ever removes the extra monster zone
>You can only use the (1)(2) effects once per turn.
>(1): If this card is in your Hand: you can send 1 other "Gouki" card from your Hand to the GY then target 1 "Gouki" monster you control; Special Summon this card in DEF position, and if you do, that target gains 800 ATK until the end of the turn.
>(2) If this card is sent from the field to the GY: you can add 1 "Gouki" card, except "Gouki Headbat" from your Deck to your Hand.
>is called a "charisma" duelist
>is more boring and lower energy than the nameless and mass manufactured mook opponent in episode 2
You can't make this stuff up
yeah we shoulda saw aoi in this episode. Hell atleast imply something with her and her brother when they showed her brother this episode like say we shoulda saw her drop him off lunch or something or have her jealous that he picked go instead of her to face playmaker but no their saving actual aoi until the week after next
Vrains is even more boring than Appli so far. Like Appli threads, these threads will become weekly at best. Not that there's anything wrong with that, it might take Vrains ~50 episodes to get anywhere decent if it does.
I told you fags, the next two weeks were gonna suck.
The pop here and there from time to time.Last one I saw was with shutmon
Is Duel Links really as slow as they're showing here?
Sawatari vs Yuya 1 wasn't the fastest or most exciting duel ever, but at least the set piece was nice and Sawatari himself had more personality on-screen, even if he's mostly a one-note character through all his phases. I dunno, I'd even argue the duel in episode 4 of Zexal felt like it had more action going on.
I don't want to be too harsh on Vrains since it's only 4 episodes, but if this is all they can do for the first impressions of the show, this director is looking like another dud.
I told you, /a/, I told you Arc-V had good duels because it used all summoning methods. Vrains duels are basically Zexal duels, and those were shit even with the Speed Duel format.
Zexals/Vrains duels are always like this:
>Summon some monsters
>Use them as fodder to summon your ace
>Protect your ace with some spells/traps/effect
>If your ace is destroyed, bring back it with some card
>Summon another powerful ace on top of your former
If you want Appli Monsters discussion go to the Digimon general on /vg/. Avoid the rest of boards.
>Worse than Arc-turd
Nope, Yusaku alone already better than egao boy, we just need more serious duel and make the duel faster
>Protect your ace with some spells/traps/effect
You're acting like everyone doesn't use this strategy in Arc-turd. it's even worse with bullshit action magic
5Ds was competently handled for the full first season and by ep 4-5 we had our first real rival duel between characters established to be former friends with bad blood between them.
Here, we have a character utterly devoid of charisma challenging a blank slate to a duel. There's nothing interesting about this conflict.
while i agree the beginning of 5DS was pretty good, I'll give VRAINS at least till episode 10 to have Yusaku fight his real rival Revolver.
Go is more of Yusaku's jealousy rival and Aoi is just some bitch
>Zexals/Vrains duels are always like this:
More like all duels in 5D's/Zexal/Arc-V/VRAINS are like this. Guess what, it's not "cool" when the ace monster isn't involved. Almost every important duel in Arc-V was finished with one boss monster attacking another boss monster.
>> /a/ reaction: Yugioh is dead
/a/ will say this to pretty much anything new.
>Cardgames on motorcycles? What is this Synchro shit? YUGIOH IS DEAD
>Retarded protagonist who doesn't even know how to play the game? YUGIOH IS DEAD
>Protagonist Recontract Universe's his entire deck? What is this new Pendulum zone shit? YUGIOH IS DEAD
i really wonder what /a/'s reaction to each new yugioh series was i like to think shitposting only ramped up during zexal but who knows maybe we always hated yugioh as far back as 04 GX
>Teacher: What’s going on?
>Go’s Manager: Gou’s Dueling is not just about winning, but also about satisfying the audience.
>That is his philosophy.
>Teacher: What’s going to happen next?
>Go’s Manager: Gou will soon take the lead in this Duel.
shouldn't the teacher already know this shit?
>but also about satisfying the audience
not this shit again
I think the problem with this show is that its trying too hard.
It shoves a ton of plot into the first episodes, which should catch people's attention, but doesnt because there isnt enough action to back it up.
It makes it characters simple and more mature, but leaves them overall boring and uninteresting to watch.
The characters that do have potential, like Ignis or Aoi, are not used to their fullest so that they can be put aside for later and push Yusaku to the front.
I will. Aoi can't be with a lowlife.
The only thing I have to be honest is that the actual card game is fun and I love that more than the anime. And despite that I like many things about the anime, the only reason I keep watching it is just to support the card game and see what's new, and the hope of seeing my favourite cards animated. Or DT too.
So is the manga going to end soon or what
I have a feeling that Blue Angel will be a bitch to Playmaker
DM was alright, manga was way better with no fillers and better pacing. I also didn't like the story changes to the canon arcs that the anime made.
Yuusaku is a god tier duelist who barely duels
Can De-Spell be used on Pendulum Monsters in the Spell zone?
As fun as it is to meme about ARC-V being the worst thing ever. Most of ARC-V is pretty decent by YGO standards. It doesn't have 100 eps of nigh unwatchable garbage (Season 4, the Virtual world filler before Battle City Finals, & the adaptation of Millennium World). The only really good part of DM's anime is Battle City. Even Duelist Kingdom is just kinda middle of the road.
I'd say there's a decent case to say ARC-V is the better viewing experience if we're talking about each show as a whole.
ARC-V and GX
I really liked how each faction had their own spin on the solid vision duel disks in ARC-V and how each person had their own color disk generally. GX's was sleek as fuck and nicely matched the aesthetic of each character's uniform.
>Synchro from hotels onward
>Xyz & Fusion
>not mostly unwatchable garbage by any typical anime standards
Good joke. The only case you can make here is that it has entertainment value for people who like to ironically watch bad anime
Hotels were 15 eps. Everything around them until the start of XYZ (aside 92) was good.
The show doesn't force you to dance around filler endlessly in order to get to good shit. It's just good until a certain point and then it stops being good. That's it. As such, it's a better experience for the uninitiated viewer.
>The show doesn't force you to dance around filler endlessly in order to get to good shit
The problem is that there is no good shit to get to. NONE of the main real plot has any satisfying payoff, on what planet is Arc-V a good series for a new viewer who doesn't want to be left hanging? Synchro was a slog even at its best, and it presenting the major problems of the arc solvable because of egao was the first major incident where the egao brainwashing started to take over the show.
Synchro was an entire 50 episodes of basically filler irrelevant to the main story, and you're going to sit there and say Arc-V didn't bullshit around with filler? Arc-V even inserted padding in its very last stretch (BB, amnesia arc), it's obvious it was trying dodge its own plot as much as it possibly could.
