They were Team Satisfaction. Yusei, Jack, Crow and Kiryu were all in a gang and fought other duelists to take over their territories. Jack described how Kiryu saved their lives by giving them hope and something to look forward to. The duel between Kiryu and Yusei starts off roughly, and if that wasn’t enough, Yusei finds himself forced to fight.
Wow they were all real bad boys back then. I mean, they were so mischievous and did gang wars. They took over gang’s territories and destroyed people’s duel disks. Kiryu was the leader of their group and was the one who planned everything. He was the one who gave them hope and a way to enjoy their lives in Satellite. I find him to be a fascinating character, I really do. It was also interesting to see that Yusei didn’t want to fight Kiryu, but it’s unavoidable. Kiryu sincerely wants to make Yusei feel nothing but pure pain and torture. The way that hand is over him, SHIT. IT’S GOING TO CRUSH HIM. D:>
There is definitely more to the back-story and we still yet to learn why Kiryu holds such an ominous grudge towards Yusei. I mean, what on earth could Yusei have done to make him hate him to the point he wants to kill him? That’s quite a grudge there.
The animation for the episode was excellent and Kiryu’s laugh, what can I say, he reminds me a lot of the Joker from Batman. It really sets the mood and display how insane he is. Despite that, I have heard way better maniac/evil laughter.
Now, I have to mention this. WHY IS IT WHENEVER THE MAIN OR RATHER SIGNIFICANT CHARACTERS WEAR CLOAKS THEY LOOK SEXY? I MEAN LOOK AT YUSEI FOR EXAMPLE, HE LOOKS SO FUCKING BEASTLY!
YUSEI WEARING A CLOAK SUITS YOU.
