Yu-Gi-Oh ARC-V Episode 62
It is jailbreak time, and you can’t have that without a riot now can you? The ‘duel festival’ wasn’t originally supposed to be a part of the ‘distraction plan’, but rather Crow and Shinji taking advantage of the event to do their break out. I was hoping we were going to find out why Crow is indebted to Shinji, but we didn’t. My guess though is: In the past Shinji had used himself as a decoy so that Crow could get away. Their initial breakout plan only consisted three people. They were Shinji, Crow and another acquaintance, Damon. But it gets more complicated when Damon mistaken Yuuya for Yuugo, and goes on about how he seen Yuugo and Yuzu putting up flyers, in desperate attempt to warn the public of Academia’s invasion.
Yuuya realizing it is Yuzu he is referring to, panics when he hears how the security has their eyes on them and becomes desperate to get out to find her before the security do. So when he catches on how Crow will be participating in a break out, Yuuya is dishearten how Crow isn’t allowing him to join them and is keeping his distance.
They made it very clear to understand why Crow’s character did 360 and tries to create distance with Yuuya. In the beginning of the episode, we were seen an example where an inmates who was friends some guys who were planning a jailbreak. Even though the individual was not participating in the plan, everyone who is connected to the culprits are collectively punished by being dragged off somewhere and never seen again.
I do find it both cute and funny how similar both Yuuya and Yuzu are to each other. They react in similar way when in a difficult situation which involves their closest friends. Yuzu was down for a long time when she was in doubt and confused after encountering Yuuto, unable to comprehend at the time why he has the same face as Yuuya. For Yuuya’s case, he lost his spirit because his anxiety was eating him up inside. He was trying to figure out what to do, how to get out, how to find Yuzu as quickly as possible. Fortunately Gongenzaka caught on why Yuuya was acting weird, and demanded answers from Crow, who filled him in. Gongenzaka was able to bring back Yuuya’s spirit, to ensure him they were all going to participate.
And sure of that was the case. Shun who was separated from the group had his own jailbreak planned out. Being the badass he is, he hid in the darkness, taking advantage of the narrow cell and made it so it looked like he had already escaped. Then he dropped down on the security and kick his way out. Funny enough, Gongenzaka had gone to help him, but Shun was already out by the time he arrived, so he didn’t have to do much.
However there is a bit of a problem. They couldn’t escape in the same route, Gongenzaka and Shun are going one way, Yuuya, Sawatari and Chojiro (I don’t get how he can fit inside but whatever no point making sense of ANIME LOGIC!) are crawling through the ventilation system with Crow, Shinji and their other bro, and worse of all- Dennis is the one to get Selena out.
Now I will always be in doubt with Dennis is involved with helping Selena or Yuzu escape, because he could call Yuuri or take care of the matter himself at any time. That’s why I don’t like the two being alone, but by the look of the preview- everyone should be meeting in the same place regardless of taking different exits- so hopefully the group will not be divided again.
In the meantime, Yuugo submitted the application for the Friendship Cup, including Yuzu without her knowing, claiming she will be able to take advantage of the big stage to warn the public of Academia’s Invasion. However, it wasn’t a good call since he and Yuzu are fugitives, and Jean intends to capture them at the Friendship Cup, and while he’s at it, set an example to the Commons. Oh joy, whatever he has in mind can’t be good…
Speaking of the devil, Jean was seen going somewhere in a limo, but there wasn’t quite any follow up of where he went. He either went to the Prison Camp, or is off to see Jack.
Overall the episode was a very fun one and I enjoyed ever minute of it. There were a lot of precious moments, such as Yuuya’s Hippo being so excited to get an awesome outfit on Sawatari’s boat, but was heartbroken when Yuuya ended his turn without doing anything! Another one was the Dancing Hippos serving as a blockade to the officers, bless you hippos, and lastly, seeing Yuzu in a change of outfit AND her hair down! she looks really pretty with her hair down, I wish we could see her with that style more often, heehee. Am I the only one who is hoping she will pick out one of Rin’s clothes and switch it up again? It would be wise since at this point there isn’t much gain wearing Selena’s Academia’s outfit.
Next week, the escape attempt continues!
