Cardfight!! Vanguard ep 165 [Legion Mate] okay ‘mate’ might not be the best word choice
Bushiroad you do realize what you’ve done, don’t you?
This episode was devoted to making Masaki remember Aichi- of course through a Vanguard match – so that means the entire episode was all Vanguard. Not that I mind, CARDGAMES. And we get to see a Genesis match, which while it is not my babu the amazing awesome Oracle Think Tank, still a pretty girl deck. PRETTY GIRL DECK
Kai and Masaki’s entire duel is what I call a predictable turnabout- Masaki attacks with criticals, gets some heavy hits early on, Kai counters- blah blah. What’s really important are two things 1. the explanation of ‘legion mate’ so people understand the title, and 2. Masaki’s reactions and development over Aichi.
This episode was a little dull if only because while Masaki obviously cares about Aichi, she is a very subtle person and so most of her reactions are wide eyed OMG I CANT DO X or subtle “..well…okay..”so naturally most of this game is Masaki going “you know I have these memories and IDK about why they arent so good” and Kai going I KNEW IT BITCH U GOTTA REMEMBA DIS SHIT
And unlike Naoki when she actually remembers she doesn’t cry, she just smiles and is like MAH friend. I just…Naoki you fanboy. I cant with your crying face.
And importantly, they explain that legion mate is the combo of two cards to become a much more powerful vanguard. You can tell the legion cards because they’re the cards with coordinating art if you put them side by side. And they get SOME INSANE BONUSES shit wingall and blaster blade had a freaking 3200 with boosting my eyes went cross eyed <____> NEXT WEEK THE PLOT WILL MOVE FORWARD AND I’M PSYCHED FOR IT BECAUSE 1.
its going to be fucking hilarious to keep hearing them go MY MATE
