I AM NOT OKAY. It was so sad to watch, as expected Yuugo is devastated, heartbroken and is in so much pain. Not only has he lost Rin, my the D-Wheel they together had put their heart and soul into is now battered and broken. Yuugo was quick to notice she wasn’t acting like herself, from her behavior to her expressions and was keen enough to notice her duel-disk has switched.
And just when Yuugo thought there was hope, and maybe there was- only for a second when she managed to utter his name, he was defeated. However Yuugo still has another chance to fight another day, along with the fact he now has a concrete idea of what is causing this behavior, which is the Parasite Fusioner. This monster was developed by the creepy dude to control and manipulate a player’s memories. If you thought it was bad enough just because of how messed up that is, well it’s gets worse when you actually see a literal parasite inside the girls’ ears. EW EW EW, GROSS!!!!!! It is because of this stupid monster the girls are nothing more than puppets. They have no self-control, they have no thoughts, they can’t do anything and will not go beyond the script assigned to them by Academia. Being able to utilize their memories and use it against their beloved ones puts their friends and family at a serious disadvantage, unless they were able to develop a new trick during the time of their separation.
I was delighted how the entire episode was mostly devoted to Rin and Yuugo, I went in thinking maybe we were going to see a bit of both, especially with how quickly it had escalated. I mean, THEY THREW THE GUYS OUT THE WINDOW!!!!!! I then thought maybe we were about to see Ruri and Shun duel, but it it appears next week’s episode will be focusing on the Lancers.
Speaking of which, Reiji finally opened up to the group and revealed how he was the one who requested assistance from Yuushou, along even more damning information regarding the ARC AREA Project. That is Revival Zero. Although Reiji doesn’t fully understand what it means, he knows one thing for sure. Inside the folder of that project were Yuuri’s and Selena’s profiles. With the knowledge of Yuuri having been filed in the database, indicates the possibility it’s not just the four girls they need, but the four boys as well (I do wonder about that though since they didn’t even bother having Rin capture Yuugo after she defeated him…). Either way, with the girls, they have four of the main keys, and we hear how it is nearing completion. The question now is, if the boys do have a role in this project, what is it, and in what way can they interfere with it to prevent it from happening? My guess their role actually involves their dragons since they have been constantly drawn to each other, and we have heard the dragons speak during the Hyper-Beserk Mode how they are to become one whole or something along the lines.
Needless to say, Yuzu and possibly even Yuushou are in serious danger. I am not sure if Yuzu will be able to find a way to break out, or if she will be able to find a way to protect herself from the parasite, I dread seeing her being controlled as a puppet (it’s probably going to happen anyways, all for the sake of the angst duel between Yuzu and Yuuya). But in all honesty, I am more worried about Yuushou. Two things can happen, actually three- but I don’t think the third will happen. i) Yuushou is turned into a card or ii) Yuushou becomes the next victim to the Parasite, leading to the ultimate angst duel of Yuuya VS his father. (Let’s face it, that would be both brutal and devastating for Yuuya).
On the extra note, I REALLY WANT TO COLLECT RIN’S DECK! I absolutely love her Winter Witches, and I am surprised by how alike they look to Yuzu’s Melodious monsters. Also, it was an awkward moment was when Edo possessed more reliable information than Dennis. Maybe it’s because he was pretty high up in the rankings to even hear of such rumor, but you’d think Dennis would at least been aware of the rumor.
