Yu-Gi-Oh ARC-V Episode 127
AND THE WORST PARENT OF THE YEAR GOES TO~
OH MY FUCKING GOD PROFESSOR AKABA LEO IS SUCH A FUCKING ASSHOLE, HOLY SHIT. THIS GUY IS- THIS GUY- I CAN’T EVEN. OH MY GOD. THIS PIECE OF SHIT HAD THE NERVE TO SAY HE DIDN’T COME TO ACADEMIA FOR WAR, WHEN HE WAS RAIDING REALMS TO TRAP PEOPLE IN CARDS TO USE THEIR LIFE ENERGY, AND USE THAT TO UNITE THE FOUR DIMENSIONS AND REVIVE HIS DAUGHTER!!! WHAT THE FUCK MAN? WHO GAVE YOU THE RIGHT TO DO THAT? RAY WOULD HATE YOUR GUTS ONCE SHE LEARNS THE SACRIFICE IT TOOK TO BRING HER BACK. OH, NOT TO MENTION: THERE IS NO GUARANTEE THAT SHE WOULD EVEN HAVE HER MEMORIES SINCE NONE OF THE GIRLS EVEN HAVE A SPECK OF MEMORIES OF THEIR’ ORIGINAL HOST’S PAST. HE IS SO FUCKING SELFISH. THIS IS ALL SELFISHNESS. INSTEAD OF MAYBE WANTING TO ADOPT THE KIDS OR LET THEM LIVE THEIR LIVES, HE KIDNAPS THEM TO REVIVE HIS DAUGHTER – WOW YOU PIECE OF SHIT WHAT ABOUT REIJI AND REIRA?! HE DOESN’T GIVE A FUCK ABOUT THEM! #WORSTPARENTOFTHEYEAR!
MY GOD THIS MAN IS SO FUCKING STUPID, HE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE ALL FINE AND DANDY BECAUSE HE IS GONNA KILL ZARC (WHO IT IS SAFE TO SAY HE ASSUMED WAS SOLELY YUUYA) FIRST. OH AND THIS GUY HAD THE FUCKING NERVE TO SAY YUUYA IS NOT YUUSHOU’S SON BECAUSE HE IS A REINCARNATION OF THE DEVIL AND HE PLANS TO KILL HIM RIGHT IN FRONT OF HIM.
WHAT. THE. ACTUAL. FUCK?!
THIS GUY IS A FUCKING IDIOT I AM FUMING. NONE OF THESE KIDS LET ALONE ANYONE DESERVE THE SHIT THIS GUY HAS BEEN PUTTING THEM THROUGH. AT THIS POINT ZARC IS ACTUALLY DOING THE SAVING HERE BECAUSE THE PROFESSOR IS PLAYING THE ROLE AS THE TRUE VILLAIN. AND THANK YOU REIJI FOR CALLING OUT HOW FUCKING STUPID HE IS. (AT LEAST THIS TELLS US THE WRITERS ARE AWARE OF IT.)
All of the above was what I was shouting at my screen as I watched this episode.
(Yeah… so you know how I said I didn’t have time today to do Ep 127 & 128 entries? Well I simply could not wait until tomorrow to watch it so I’m staying up late so I can cover it!!!!!)
I have to to hand it to the writers, because in the previous episode, no one could understand the logic behind the Professor’s plans (including the characters, that’s why Reiji called him out on it). And maybe I am giving the writers too much credit, but I felt this episode gave us a good explanation for the reason why it wasn’t making any sense. I want to believe it is because the writers deliberately made it that way. Leo’s ultimate goal is meant to be an illogical and selfish ambition. He is diagnosed with tunnel vision of his sole focus of bringing back Ray, and is willing to pay whatever price is necessary to do so. It is ironic because here he is yapping about being responsible about creating the devil, when he himself has become one. He is so delusional, that he isn’t able to recognize that everyone else standing in the room thinks he is an absolute madman. He actually thought Reiji would side with him to take Yuuya down, but Reiji doesn’t have time to put up with this insanity. He knows Yuuya and even reassured him that he knows he is not a demon. Now together, Yuuya and Reiji will be dueling the Professor, and Yuushou will be observing in the back. However I am curious about the look on his face, and the card he is holding in his pocket and what it will be used for. Maybe while the kids duel, he will break the girls out? Well he has all sorts of tricks up his sleeves, he can be a crafty one as we have seen when he did the grand escape from Dennis.
The one thing that ticked me off however was how easily the Doctor was eliminated, making it so the whole conflict of the girls being controlled by the parasite a plot to simply draw out Zarc’s inner spirit. While I am happy the girls are finally consciously free again (they are not completely free as they are now trapped in this stupid tubes and had to listen to the Professor’s batshit plan), I am sorely disappointed how anticlimactic it was. I would have LOVED to see someone kick the Doctor’s ass, but no, the professor just had to card him immediately (because he’s too dangerous). Gee, it only took you this long to figure it out eh, Leo? I am telling you, he might be an engineer, but this Leo guy most definitely is not a bright character. Reiji definitely got the brains from his mom at this point.
However there is one thing that still has not been explained and is leaving me terribly confused. We all know Yuuri is part of Revival Zero, but the thing is, as I mentioned in the previous entry, the Professor never treated Yuuri as if he was a devil (ironically he made him into one, GOOD ON YA, REPEATING YOUR MISTAKES TIME AND TIME AGAIN- god this guy is an idiot). Instead he keeps on focusing on Yuuya. Why does he allow Yuuri to roam free? Why has he not eliminated him yet? It is really because he thinks Yuuya is the sole threat? Because if so, that just shows this guy just keeps getting dumber by the minute.
As I am sure you have noticed, I didn’t bother providing a detailed recap in regards of Ray, the original host of Yuzu, Ruri, Rin and Selena. The only thing you need to know is that Ray took Leo’s cards he had created to defeat Zarc, and those cards are actually the bracelets. So when the time is right, I am sure those bracelets will be transformed into cards and we may potentially get the chance to finally see the girls play a major role by saving the boys once they inevitably reunite as one.
And with that in mind, perhaps this is what will be the final focus because Reiji and Yuuya are already dueling against the Professor (which is admittedly sooner than I anticipated). So I guess something is going to happen, which will result Zarc’s rebirth since he doesn’t need the realms to become one again, and ultimately Zarc will be the final boss. I won’t lie though, I am perplexed how the writers are going to execute this. Pacing has not been their strong point for quite a while now…
