Yu-Gi-Oh VRAINS Episode 12
AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA OH MY GOD, WHAT IS AIR, I CAN’T BREATHE. OH MY GOD MY STOMACH HURTS FROM LAUGHING SO HARD. IGNIS, AI, WHATEVER I’M SUPPOSED TO CALL HIM NOW – OH MY GOD, TALKING ABOUT BRUISING HIS EGO! HE IS SO TINY!!!!!!! I thought he’d be human size, but the more they built up with it, I knew he had to be tiny, but their reaction to his true form was the best thing I’ve seen in a long time. They were not impressed whatsoever. Oh man, I haven’t laughed this hard in a long time.
The battle against Revolver has finally come to a close, and it was truly an excellent one, especially the master duel. We definitely need more of those in the future. Having two separate rounds of battles was something many of us were concerned how it was going to be executed, but they managed to pull it off without a hitch. Today it was fairly obvious that Yuusaku was going to win, and I liked the build up of how he was betting everything on his destiny draw of the deck he had built specifically to fight against the Hanoi Knights. However it cannot go unnoticed how Revolver was shaken by the fact he and Yuusaku knew each other from the incident that took place ten years ago. Dr. Kogami even said how fate is scary if that’s truly the case.
A secret, that seems imply that it was in fact SOL Technologies to be the ones behind the incident Yuusaku has been investigating. This dirt is what got everyone excited, especially SOL Technologies in particular. They will be dismissing Akira from his position shows us that they absolutely do not want anyone to know too much. They will be replacing with him with Kitamura, described as someone who is hungry for promotions. This just goes to show that SOL Technology, is as I suspected, not a bunch to be trusted. So its’ not just the Hanoi Knights who are preparing for a major event, but SOL Technologies as well. Dr. Kogami, reassures Revolver that it’s not the end of the world to have lost today’s battle, but if worst comes to worst, they will jump ahead to the final stage of their grand plans.
Revolver is quite upset at the fact he feels like Yuusaku is working alongside SOL Technologies. But the truth is, he is not – especially since he did not hand Ignis over to Akira, and probably won’t, especially if Akira gets fired sooner or later.
But the big question remains: Who is the good guy and who is the bad guy? Are the Hanoi Knights misunderstood, or are they to be considered separate fraction of villains. There is also the deal with “Ignis” AI species. AI who have been gifted the ability of free will. What are their intentions, aside from taking over the network, what makes them so threatening to the Hanoi Knights, and what makes them so useful to SOL Technologies? (I mean, Ignis/AI really went after Revolver… That’s pretty dangerous. Even Yuusaku was like WHOA!) So much juicy stuff, I cannot wait for it to be uncovered!!!!
I must say though, it’s probably severely underrated, but we should certainly take a moment to appreciate how Aoi’s condition for several episodes, was not all in vain. Instead it served as a reason for Yuusaku to get involved despite it being a trap. Considering all the episodes up to this point been focused on the fight, Aoi’s character hardly missed anything and will conscious and ready to jump back int just when the plot is ready to move onto its next stage. It’s a positive sign, to say the least.
Also Akira bawled his eyes out. That was pretty cute. He was a sobbing mess. (Can’t blame him though)
