Yu-Gi-Oh ARC-V Episode 113

This match felt almost as though it was a filler due the fact I believe most of us thought Kachidoki Isao was long over and done with, and was likely to never been seen again. But I suppose it was nice they wanted to tie up the loose ends, especially since it was the first step for Yuuya to make up for the terrifying ordeal that took over him. I presume this is one of the basic first step forward to ensuring Yuuya does not fall into that darkness again, but what was also great was seeing how much he had grown.

YGO ARC V Ep 113 Img 0011What I loved the most about this unexpected match-up was how we are able to see how much Yuuya has grown, compared to Kachidoki. In fact, I am surely not the only one who had noticed distinct similarities to how Yuuya used to be and how Kachidoki is behaving now. It is crystal clear Kachidoki lacks self-confidence, and the reason that is is because he refuses to accept his loss. Instead he bears a grudge, and is desperate to win by any means. As result, we witnessed him heavily depending on Action Cards, just the same way as Yuuya had in the past. In contrast to this, we were able to see how just much Yuuya had grown. When he lost out on the action cards, he didn’t panic, he resorted to using his monster effects more often, had a trap card laying in the wait which would result the victor to be determined by luck (which is better off than Kachidoki’s method of self-destructing so it ends as a draw). Yuuya was also seriously concerned about Kachidoki’s well-being, and he wanted to make sure he delivered properly since the last time they dueled, he was overtaken by Beserk-Mode, which only scared the living shit out of Kachidoki instead of bringing about smiles.

YGO ARC V Ep 113 Img 0017It was kind of funny to see how stupid Kachidoki was behaving. All that pent up frustration and jealousy he harbored towards Yuuya since he saw him by the riverbed. When he brought it up, Yuuya was completely lost about it because he never saw him- so of course he didn’t remember him! Kachidoki was also super over-dramatic, and looked more like he was a child taking a temper tantrum. The thing I didn’t find funny was when he start “self-inflicting” harm on himself because, that’s never a healthy thing to see. Yuuya was equally concerned about him, and you could just tell he knew he needed to do something to help him in someway. Fortunately with the way the duel had concluded, Kachidoki wasn’t scared to death and now was able to get closure he needed to accept his loss.

YGO ARC V Ep 113 Img 0013I am sure some were a bit irritated to see how the Academia fodder Dennis had sent after Yuzu got distracted and got sucked into watching Yuuya duel. But hey, to be fair- think about it, when was the last time these kids got to see a entertaining spectacle? One that had FIREWORKS! Hell even the crowd in the plaza were mesmerized by the show. (It was also good to see they plug them in because we know the city isn’t supposed to be a ghost town.) So I can forgive and overlook the corny event.

Now that Kachidoki has lost to Yuuya, he wanders off to god knows where, and he will be in for a rude wake-up call if he finds Dennis. Who wants to bet Dennis or someone else will card him for failing to deal with Yuuya?

Oh and I just realized Shun is suffering from the same thing as Aki in 5DS, Coma Substitution. Where one is in a coma and another character is substituted in. I think it happened around this time too…

    To put it simply, Yuya took one episode to make the Fusion Dimension his bitches.

  2. Oh, so no more Heartland getting blasted to ashes scenes, but a direct narration of 4 Dimensions & 4 Yutagonists… Back to the episode, Yuya’s Egao cult just grew even more ridiculous than ever, and Isao WHAT A SALTY BITCH, just because SOMEONE’S CHILDHOOD WASN’T AS BAD AS YOURS doesn’t mean you have to be a meanie! But I’m really glad the writers remembered what makes Action Duels so interesting: both players using the field to their advantage, both people using Action Cards, and not just for a last-minute save. Sawatari & Gongenzaka though, they had ONE JOB but they’re too lame to do it!

    Next week, NEO GALAXY-EYES CIPHER DRAGON/GALAXY-EYES CIPHER BLADE DRAGON??!! OMG I CAN’T WAIT!!!

    Now for commentaries:
    Time for Level-0-Man to kick some ass in FIST OF THE NORTH SALT.
    • The feels when Mr. “Not-Fusion” says he’ll be there to protect you… and then disappears… :(
    • New Intro-Tag! There are four dimensions, each with a boy with the same face (which ISN’T true) and similar dragons (again, that ISN’T true)…
    • SURPRISE MOTHERFUCKERS! MR. “IF IT DOESN’T HAVE A LEVEL, DOESN’T THAT MEAN IT’S LEVEL 0?” IS ABOUT TO RAPE YUYA! NO WAY IT CAN BE EGAO!
    • Wow this is rich. Kachidoki is complaining about being beaten in a card game WHEN HE WAS BRUTALLY ASSAULTING EVERYONE. He’s a bully that cries like a bitch when he tried to show his fake edge but only to get punched back by a legit edge with a Tomato haircut.
    • It’s time for Fusion Dimension to teach the Lancers how to chill out with their crew in the schoolyard.
    • LOL Dennis & Kaito GTFO’d fast enough. I guess finding trouble here will never be too hard. ;)
    • The jobbers are coming! Could this be a duel that Sawatari & Gongenzaka ACTUALLY win or not?
    • LOL “Gongenzaka and I”, way to ignore poor Sawatari, Yuzu! XD
    • Wow, by looking at the background (a marketplace), apparently EVERYONE in the Fusion Dimension gives no fuck about all this shit going on.
    • Does what Kachidoki’s doing count as a Fusion Pose? I’m not quite sure…
    • Xiangke & Xiangsheng… Odd-Eyes Rebellion Dragon ready to show up…?
    • I just noticed that during the summoning, Yuya has the rollerskate boots on.
    • XYZ SUMMON!! RANK 4!! DARK REBELLION XYZ DRAGON!!
    • You know Yuya, given that you can read cards through the app on your duel disk, THIS IS THE KIND OF SHIT YOU SHOULD’VE LOOKED UP.
    • Kachidoki did a regular Fusion Pose and then a Kung-Fu Pose while summoning. His Fusion pose is so on point that he has several of them.
    • HAHAHAHAHA! LEVEL-0-MAN WANTS ALL ATKS AT 0!! XD
    • OH MAN! LEVEL-0-MAN IS FUCKING AMAZING! THE IRONY!! XD
    • STOP BEING STUPID YUYA! I don’t see why you ever needed to feel guilty about winning that duel… Especially when that guy literally ignores playing card games and beats the shit out of you.
    • Yuya: “FUCK YOUR LEVEL 0 BULLSHIT!”
    • LOL THIS IS SUCH A HILARIOUS REVERSAL OF BULLSHIT! FUCK LEVELS & RANKS!
    • Good to know that Fusion Dimension citizens are completely okay with Kachidoki beating the shit out of Yuya (as per usual) to get an Action Card.
    • Okay, NOW the Fusion Dimension citizens in the background look a bit dismayed… Just a bit.
    • Action Magic: Assault? I don’t think Kachidoki needed an Action Card for that.
    • CARD GAMES ON ROLLERSKATES!!
    • So the Fusion Dimension people are actually watching all this shit happening.
    • Kachidoki managed to out-bullshit Yuya’s bullshit, so now Yuya must find a way to out-bullshit Kachi-RIDING ON WALLS?! THIS IS IT!! YUYA’S BULLSHIT IS OFF THE CHARTS!!!
    • LOL The Academia students don’t even give a fuck about Sawatari & Gongenzaka. Good lord, you guys had a job but you’re too lame to do it! >:(
    • Yuya just tried to divide by Zero… [EVERY DIMENSION EXPLODES]
    • Geez man, I understand about you holding a grudge, but the reason you are holding a grudge because SOMEONE’S CHILDHOOD WASN’T AS SHIT AS YOURS is plain stupid. Calm the fuck down!
    • Kachidoki’s aiming for a Suicide Draw! Obelisk Ackbar!
    • Nope, Level-0-Man, no way you are gonna suicide bombing the Tomato that easily.
    • Is this like the Yu-Gi-Oh version of Mount Your Friends?
    • Kachidoki isn’t Dark Signer-fied anymore for unexplained reasons.
    • KOI KOI KOI KOI! LET’S ENJOY! DRAW!
    • GET FUCKED KACHIDOKI! RIP IN JENGA!
    • Kachidoki: “Entertainment Duels are cool, but not as cool as KICKING YOUR ASS DUELS!”
    • It’s kinda weird that Kachidoki just randomly walks away like a tournament loss… Umm… You guys are still surrounded by the enemy army, which he’s also part of… Not sure everyone should be so chill… Especially since this is NOT how Fusion people chill out with their crew in the schoolyard.

    NEXT EPISODE
    • Dennis vs Kaito, with Asuka & Yusho spectating on a boat while drinking Chinese tea. :p

    eva episodes 19-23 of mahou tsukai precure has been subbed by the sub group you are using. are you going to review those episodes?

  4. Becs says:

    Yeah i agree with you Eva in that this episode’s duel was mostly quite boring and i think the animators knew and didnt put great effort in because i remember one frame had Yuya’s eyes looking like L from Death Note making him look like a Ghoul. you know a ‘Duel Ghoul’ *waits for applause only to receive silence*… Shut up, i’m funny! XD

    I would like to mention 4 points that i enjoyed!

    I liked how Yuya wasn’t an automatic expert in using the skates when he did use them as i thought he would in the middle when i realised he could’ve used them against Kachidoki.

    Kaito’s slick excape from the duelists to chase after Dennis. I mean seriously! those were cool flips!

    I loved the rest of the duel from when Yuya went ‘Ladies and Gentlemen’ to when that big pink explosion cloud exploded behind Yuya in a wonderful way that i was applauding it enthusiastically.

    And lastly i just LOVED Yuto’s interactions with Yuya here!
    Although that might be biased, because if Yuto was not interesting his presence here would only serve to remind the audience that there is a story going on and that he hasnt disappeared. Now while that is true because Yuto’s inclusion in speaking could’ve been cut and nothing would have changed in the duel… Because Yuto is someone we all love and we rarely see him speak to Yuya in a non-serious manner.
    So for him to go ‘well, you managed to convert him… how the hell do you manage to do it you lovable dork!?’… ok, i’m paraphrasing but that’s the cutesy version of what he said at the end. and his concerns for Yuya throughout the duel were so heartwarming! I think Yuto STOLE this episode for me secretely without me knowing it!

    1 thing i found baffling is WHY THE HELL DIDN’T YUZU AND THAT RUN WHEN THE ACADEMY SOLDIERS WERE DISTRACTED!!?
    I was practically shouting at the screen saying ‘Now would be a good time to RUN! You don’t need to see Yuya duel, Go on ahead to Academia! Don’t just stand there like statues!!’ and yeah the shouts went on.

    but overall ok episode, not especially bad but not great either.
