Yu-Gi-Oh ARC-V Episode 135
Holy shit it’s been so chaotic around me that I actually forgot about this week’s episode! Sorry about that folks! And in case people are confused about it, I AM STILL COVERING YGO ARC-V. I intend to finish it. It just means YGO ARC-V is the only and last show I will be covering until I choose to participate in future seasons. With that all hopefully cleared up, let’s go go go!
Well shit, I knew wasn’t going to be sun sunshine and rainbows if Yuuya won, but YIKES. What one of my many feared had happened. While taking control of Clear Wing, Dark Rebellion XYZ Dragon, he made it look as if he ‘rescued’ Yuugo and Yuuto, but in reality that wasn’t the case at all. We already saw Yuuya struggling to keep Zarc’s soul at bay with Yuuto, and the promise he made with Yuuto only involve the two of them, not Yuugo as well. Once you threw Yuugo into the mix, Yuuya was officially a goner,and had lost the battle the very moment he put Smile World in the graveyard. Reiji’s motivation speech came back to haunt him in tenfold by triggering what had set Zarc on the path of destruction. This seems to imply that it was not Yuuri, but in fact Yuuya’s fragment who had harbored that sentiment all along. Reiji had no idea that he was the one to pull the final trigger.
This episode gave me a lot of heartache because I could feel the pain Yuuya was going through. And I was just as devastated as he was when he sent Smile World to the graveyard. While his fate was already set into stone, keeping Smile World by his side would have at least been a source of comfort, instead of having to throw it away to save himself and fall into despair and experience the amount of guilt he did. By throwing away Smile World, was to Yuuya, equivalent of throwing away his father, and no longer being watched over by him.
Yuuri was pretty confident he had this in the bag, and to be honest, I thought he had it too- but the outcome of Yuuya becoming Zarc even before he absorbs Yuuri was icing on the cake. The inevitable revival of the Supreme King was quite a flashy one too. Having had broken out of the dome Leo prepared in attempt to contain the King while he searches for Ray and the cards to seal Zarc with, now ALL of the worlds that are in the process of being merged into one is about to experience the doom and fury that will follow. And who is it to blame? Akaba Leo. Had he not even initiated this Arc-V Project, and Revival Zero NONE of this probably would have happened. All the souls would have been in their separate worlds, and would have had no reason to seek each other out so as long their guardian angels were by their side.
With Zarc having been revived, one has to wonder about Yuuya himself, and how he will be able to fight back from within. In the end it looks like it may be up to Ray- that is so as long everything went according to plan. Currently Leo is trying to locate her, and figure out where she went and what may have possibly went wrong. Actually I think I would like it more if the merging was not successful and see the girls each as their own.
The only thing I didn’t in the final outcome of this is the fact our cameos of the past are STILL AROUND, and I would really like to see the main characters from the beginning of the series step back into the limelight (like, I don’t know, SAWATARI! THE GUY WITH NINE LIVES!). Who knows though, with Zarc roaming about, whoever crosses his path is likely to meet a grim fate, be it friend, or foe.
A/N: No ARC-V January 1st, episode 137 will air on January 8th.
I hope everyone has a Happy Holidays and New Years!!!
