Yu Gi Oh Zexal Ep 9: WTF did I just watch?
You’re crazy… =_=
Yuma receives a note from a bunch of cats claiming Kotori has been kidnapped. He goes to the destination and is confronted by a classmate who has a huge crush on him and has always watched him from afar. Thinking she is possessed by a number card, Yuma accepts her challenge to a duel.
Note: Sorry that the screencaps are bad quality, I tried to increase the quality, but it didn’t do much. :\
…What the fuck did I just watch? I don’t even know! IS THIS EVEN YU GI OH ANYMORE? JUST….GOD I’M SPEECHLESS AT JUST HOW STUPID THIS EPISODE WAS. AND HOLY SHIT, YOU HAVE ANY IDEA HOW MANY TIMES I WAS YELLING OUT LOUD, “STOP IT! GOD STOP DOING THAT!” WHENEVER CATHY LICKED HER LIPS!? It drove me insane because it was so creepy and disturbing! I can’t tell whether she’s half human, half cat because those ears look awfully real – but then again, if they were she’d have four ears… >___> AND SERIOUSLY YUMA. HOW THE FUCK DO YOU NOT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE WEARING?!?!?! NO EXCUSES, THAT JOKE WAS JUST PLAIN STUPID.
By the time I was ten minutes into the episode it finally occurred to me that, there’s no way Kotori was kidnapped by the cats. Instead, they just took in ribbon – and guess what? That was exactly the case, it was even weirder seeing Kotori playing ‘red light, green light’ or whatever with the cats, I mean I get it’s cute and all
(and I won’t deny that I found it cute) but COME ON.
Despite all the stupidity and ‘WTF AM I WATCHING’ moments, I was ECSTATIC about one thing. Yuma was on a roll. We finally got to see him dueling independently! While yes, he did listen to some of Astral’s suggestions, the important part is that he basically won the duel on his own for once. Taking his time to think things through and come up with a strategy. The fact that a friend was ‘supposedly’ on the line certainly help bring out that strong side of him. On top of that it was fun to see him use that adorable kitty again. \>w</ I can’t get over how cute it is. \>w</
Cathy, maybe if she weren’t so cat-crazy I would have liked her character. It looks like she does potientially have a badass side of her besides her dueling strength. It would probably be fun to see her use those qualities in the future, but honestly I’d much prefer to see it benefiting the plot.
Overall, speaking honestly – this episode was just plain silly. I know some may find this cute (and it was), but god – I didn’t even know what to make out of this. It certainly felt like this episode was kind of forcing it’s way to ‘setting up’ possible love triangles, that is between Kotori and Cathy for Yuma since they wanted to show off how the girls felt jealous of each other (Cathy in the beginning and Kotori at end).
But in the end we all know it’s going to be Yuma x Shark *SHOT* Actually before I forget, I actually felt bad for Cathy trying to confess in the middle of dueling when Yuma was so fired up he wasn’t paying attention whatsoever.
If I haven’t seen the preview, I would drop this show right now – but since SHARK IS FINALLY GOING TO BE BACK IN THE PICTURE WITH THAT DARK KNIGHT THAT WE’VE BEEN SEEING IN THE OPENING THAT MEANS THE PLOT IS MOVING FORWARD!!!!!!!!!! Besides it looks like I was right to give this show at least ten episodes to find out where it’s going, so depending on how the next episode turns out – this show will be on the line on whether I will continue blogging this or not.
