Yu-Gi-Oh ARC-V Episode 145: RIP
While I am happy there’s a pretty solid chance at this point that Yuzu will return as Yuzu like Yuuya had… *TWITCH* Yuugo, Yuuto, Yuuri, Ruri, Selena and Rin better be okay too. It ticked me off to hear from the Professor and everyone else that the others are probably gone for good. F— that. I WILL NOT ACCEPT THE CONCEPT OF ‘THEIR SOUL STILL LIVES ON WITHIN YUUYA AND YUZU’. YOU KNOW WHAT IS ACTUALLY MEANS? They have lost their physical bodies, there is no return to their families.
So yeah, they are basically saying they are dead.
THIS IS UNACCEPTABLE, DON’T YOU F——-ing DARE WRITERS. DON’T. YOU. DARE. BRING BACK ALL MY BABIES IN THEIR PHYSICAL BODIES, ALIVE AND WELL. DON’T YOU GIVE US THAT SOUL LIVES ON WITHIN BULLSHIT. THAT AIN’T GONNA CUT IT!
But man, what really got me upset was how in the end, Shun is okay with Yuuto’s soul residing within Yuuya’s, and Ruri’s within Yuzu’s. I get Shun had undergone a whole lot of development from Angry Bird to… err, Chirpy (for the lack of a better word) , but I felt like this episode failed the authenticity of Shun’s emotions. We know this guy, when you pull that trigger, all hell will break loose. That’s what I expected out of Shun when the Professor said Yuuto and Ruri are good as dead. This is his sister, and his best friend for crying out loud, after traveling all across the realms for god knows how long, Shun learns they are more or less dead.
He doesn’t punch the Professor (though I really wanted him to) and just turns to Yuuya and accepts the duel. And the duel itself, my god- soooo underwhelming. Besides the fact they should have capitalized on Shun constantly picking up Action Cards to counter and negate Yuuya’s, (which presented a rare opportunity for Yuuya to have to duel without them for an exchange,) Shun grieving for his sister and his friend was not conveyed whatsoever. I didn’t feel any grief, none of it. This is why I felt they had failed to authentically deliver Shun’s emotions, because in the end, I didn’t feel anything except for frustration of the shoddy script that was making me cringe from start to finish.
And don’t even get me started on Asuka telling Shun, “Leo is trying to revive Ray”
UM, GIRL. DID YOU MISS THE MEMO? HE JUST KILLED FOUR OTHER GIRLS FOR HIS OWN SELFISHNESS AND YOU’RE OKAY WITH THAT?! Now that bullshit writing right there.
Yeah I didn’t enjoy this episode.
I swear to god, they need to STOP it with the IN ORDER TO SAVE YUZU, I GOTTA MAKE REIRA SMILE AGAIN – I AM SO DONE WITH IT. STOP IT. JUST STOP. THIS ISN’T ABOUT REIRA, THIS IS ABOUT YUZU, THAT’S IT. NOTHING MORE.
AND SPOILER ALERT: NOBODY CARES ABOUT REIRA EVER SINCE THEY PULLED THAT RAY-MEDIUM SHIT.
The only good thing about this episode was the animation (looked spectacular, and I noticed they added some flare to Shun’s Rank-Up scene), and the soundtrack (as usual, can’t wait for the final release!). Also
Next week: Ugh Jack is next, he was impatiently waiting for Yuuya to finish up. He dares Yuuya to use all four dragons in their fight. And you know what it’s time for! CARD GAMES IN SPACE!
