Yu Gi Oh Zexal Ep 9: WTF did I just watch?

Eva

My name is Eva, I've been watching Anime since 2003, and I became a fan later in 2005. I am a passionate writer, so it's a wonderful experience and incredibly thrilling to blog reviews/critics and just express myself about the series.

    Just read you blog, and I thought I’d help you clear a few things up:
    1) Kathy & Kotori are rivals in the original magna of Yu-Gi-Oh Zexal for Yuma’s affections (*Sounds silly, I know, but just go with it!*)
    2) Kathy’s “cat ears” are actually hair clips placed in specific points in her hair to give the illusion that she has cat ears.
    3) The name of Shark’s “Dark Knight” card is called Black Ray Lancer. It’s summoned the exact same way as Aero Shark & No.17 Revise Dragon.
    4) Kathy’s plan in this episode was to cause a shift in Yuma & Kotori’s “friendship”, so to speak, which was why she was constantly changing Yuma’s clothes each night.
    And 5) Astral seems to be afraid of cats.
    Overall, I agree with you that this episode was completely stupid and might as well have been a “throw-away” episode just for filler. However, the duel wasn’t that bad, despite Kathy’s mannerism and her “Cat-Deck”, and we got to see Yuma’s theory that “not all duelists are bad” go into motion by realizing Kathy just needs to get some friends. In short, it’s a terrible episode but a bit of a guilty pleasure….in small doses.

      Thanks for reading but there’s a few things I think you’re taking me too seriously about ^^;/ And you probably know most of the spoilers because by the look of it, been reading the original manga. (I don’t know how far you are though! LOL) XD

      //1) Kathy & Kotori are rivals in the original magna of Yu-Gi-Oh Zexal for Yuma’s affections (*Sounds silly, I know, but just go with it!*)//

      Despite that, like I said, I found that they made it feel rather forced, in the sense for setting up what looks to be a ‘love triangle’. I don’t know how the manga set it up, maybe it was better but for now that’s how I feel.

      
//2) Kathy’s “cat ears” are actually hair clips placed in specific points in her hair to give the illusion that she has cat ears.//

      I was kidding about that part. I figured she was wearing something like that, (heck she’s obsessed with cats!!!), that’s why I mentioned “but then again, if they were she’d have four ears… >___>”

      
//3) The name of Shark’s “Dark Knight” card is called Black Ray Lancer. It’s summoned the exact same way as Aero Shark & No.17 Revise Dragon.//

      Well we haven’t gotten the name yet, so that’s why I called it ‘Dark Knight’ for the time being.

      
//4) Kathy’s plan in this episode was to cause a shift in Yuma & Kotori’s “friendship”, so to speak, which was why she was constantly changing Yuma’s clothes each night.//

      Aka in other words, she was jealous and she wanted to somehow get Yuma’s attention (unfortunately for her she didn’t realize that he wasn’t aware of her presence in class whatsoever) diverted to her instead of always Kotori.

      
//And 5) Astral seems to be afraid of cats.//
      Probably so, but he used a damn good ‘excuse’ regarding how they were all looking at Yuma and probably found it creepy (heck I would find it creepy too). THEY ARE STARING INTO HIS SOUL!!!

      The duel was good, but my god – I think the overdid the ‘licking lips’ which I must say was not only very distracting, but annoying as hell.
      Guilty pleasure indeed for those who love kitty girls with love puff sparkling background. XD

        Personally, I guess it’s a guilty pleasure for people who “love ‘kitty girls’ with love puff sparkling background”, but even that was kind of creepy and distracting in the duel for me. It just proves Kathy is just nuts and desperate for REAL friends….and cats don’t count as friends unless you adopt cats all the time. Kathy might as well be a cat hoarder! Also, it’s common knowledge about the Kathy/Kotori rivalry that I found out from the Yu-Gi-Oh Zexal Wikia page. And finally, I agree on one last thing…..They Do: Cats look into your soul! They torture it with screams of hunger all the time, and they treat you like a slave until you die!
