Yu-Gi-Oh VRAINS Episode 28
THE PLOT IS THICKENING !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh man, this is crazy, so Faust’s and the others weren’t completely useless, or at least Baira! Some dude with white hair went to her place to retrieve a hidden camera in Baira’’s room and caught both Kusanagi and Yuusaku on camera, revealing Playmaker’s true identity. There’s no doubt in my mind not only now they know who Playmaker is, but also identify which victim from the Lost Incident. But is it Revolver? I get the feeling it just might be, especially since he has access to Baira’’s apartment, as well as her trust. I have a sneaking feeling he may have deliberately either let that security footage float around the web for Playmaker to find, or Baira’ may have cooperated with him to show up in the parking lot to deliberately lure Playmaker out.
But first let’s discuss the fact Yuusaku thought it was Faust who had stolen his card’s data to lure him out. At first, this shocked me, because I swore Yuusaku was onto Ai last week, or at least suspicious of him, but after I thought about it some more, I realized this only made misconception even more authentic as many of us (the audience) initially thought the same until we started connecting the dots of Ai’s shady behaviour, something Yuusaku doesn’t always get to see.
However, since Yuusaku didn’t spare Faust and cut him off short, he is now being haunted by his ominous warning of none other than the Ignis species being a threat to humanity’s future.
We know it’s one of the main reasons why the Hanoi Knights are hunting and are possibly looking to contain and destroy the Ignis species that they played a part in creating. However we still don’t know whether or not Dr. Kogami was merely Sol Technologies’ scapegoat by labeling him as the mastermind of the Lost Incident Project. All we know he was actively part of the project, and the victims from the Lost Incident were being used to provide data to create the Ignis Species. They tortured them, starved them, and pushed them to theirs limit to forcefully draw out their instincts of survival. Honestly, after seeing what Yuuskau had been put through, I would be surprised if some died during the process.
And this leads back to my growing suspicious and wariness of Ai. Thankfully by the end of the episode Yuusaku seems finally be suspicious of Ai, but is it already too late? What does the Ignis, let alone Ai (who is leading the charge right now by using Playmaker to his fullest to eliminate those who are threatening him), want to achieve? What is their goal? What makes them a threat to humanity? Do they plan world domination? There is an evil side to Ai, and it was in this episode where I felt we saw the more malicious and cunning side of him and frankly speaking it freaks me out. He may be hilarious to watch, but I absolutely do not trust him the slightest. The fact he is capable of making AI more intelligent and even manipulate them into following him (Robopoppi as our prime example), is a very, very scary thing.
Truth to be told, going into this episode I was hoping Faust wasn’t going to be another roll over and die captain like the other two were. In the end, he kind of did just that, but at least his did put up a convincing fight, one where I actually thought at times Playmaker might just lose this duel – of course due to the plot armou,r he still pulled through at 50LP after that clutch save with Urgent Link.
However, after seeing how everything played out in the end, his loss and Playmaker’s victory does not upset me as much as I thought it would. Instead I am excited to see what to come because now that their true identities have been exposed, Yuusaku has everything to lose. His enemy (potentially Revolver) is now going to be able to track him down in the real world, attack him when he least expects it. I know he wants to defeat him in a duel, but is he also willing to go to the extreme and outright rob Ai? I mean, what better time to do that than when he leaves him at home while he is elsewhere?
Next week, Kusanagi Report, does that mean recap? Ugh I hope not, but there is one thing for sure, you can see Yuusaku is definitely growing more and more unsettled about Ai. I wonder if he will go as far as installing hidden cameras in his home to find try and catch Ai’s behavior when he’s not around.
A/N: Thank you all for your patience everyone, I am in much better condition now than I was last weekend. ; v ;/ If I have time tonight, I will look into having Code: Realize Episode 7 out later this evening, if not – expect it to be out tomorrow along with Idolm@ster Side:M (though I have yet watched the episode, just a quick note: I feel I have too little to write about I will save it as a double-post with Episode 8).
