THAT SON OF A BITCH HOW FUCKING DARE HE HURT YUZU!!!!! *RAGE QUIT*
Q-Q YUZUUUUUUU!!!! YUZU BABY WHERE ARE YOU?! ARE YOU OKAY!? OH GOD THEY ARE GOING TO KEEP A MYSTERY FOR A WHILE AREN’T THEY FFFFFFF——!!!!!!
If you didn’t know already, Sergey is a fucking psychopath, also probably a serial killer because he gains pleasure by destroying aka killing things that are beautiful. He is seriously fucked up, and for the love of god, I would like it to see either Selena or Shun get revenge. However out of all the characters left in the competitions, I would guess Shun would probably be most appropriate since he is probably more familiar with these type of strategies since it’s similar to his own, but more messed up and used in the most twisted way possible. FUCK YOU JEAN. YOU JUST HAD TO CHOOSE THE MOST PSYCHOTIC GUY WITH A VIOLENT RECORD TO BEAT YUZU.
Seriously, I don’t think I have much to say for this episode, because it was so fucking brutal to watch. I knew it was going to get ugly, but it turned out to be even more violent than I had ever imagined. Like, this crash is ten times worse than Izayoi Aki in 5Ds. I am seriously upset, not at the writers, but just seeing her get attacked like that. But at the same time, it was frustrating. We all knew she was trouble when we saw all his monsters were 0 ATK and she kept on attacking. It was so bloody obvious because of a frequent pattern and the similarities to Shun’s strategies. I kept on talking to the screen, telling Yuzu, “USE YOUR HEAD GIRL! YOU’RE SMARTER THAN THAT! PROCEED WITH CAUTION!” But then it just became fucking painful when Yuzu was being sympathetic because that is the type of person she is, and she courageously started speaking out about how the tournament is wrong, they are in danger of being invaded, and the only way they are actually going to function is to unite their hearts. After this tragic attack, it is a wonder whether or not Yuzu’s words had left an impact on anyone. It was a beautiful speech, but this society is so fucked up in the mind that they don’t see anything morally wrong with the underhanded plays where the the loser ends up in a critically injured or worse, possibly dead.
But we know Yuzu isn’t dead, it’s just a matter of whether or not she is critically injuries or she miraculously survived unscathed. I am immediately jumping onto the theory of how her bracelet just may have saved her- because one, let’s be real here: anyone who crashes into a build like that- would have been killed on the spot. And further more, we know that Sergey has a murder record as well, so realistically speaking we probably should have seen this coming, but the problem was we never imagined it to be executed at this scale. And two, this opens a valuable opportunity for us to learn more about the mysteries of the bracelet. We don’t know what kind of things it can do. It causes Yuuya’s counterparts to disappear once approached when they are with Yuzu (as well as detects Yuuya), and the Professor probably needs both the girls and their bracelet to accomplish is Dimensional Fusion plan, so surely, there must be something else it can do- and surely it must have saved her because god forbid her gaining an amnesia or get stuck in a fucking coma.
But if it does turn out, the bracelet had saved her: then that means there is a possibility Yuzu has been be teleported elsewhere in the city (or perhaps to another realm yet again- let’s hope not). On top of that, now that she no longer has protection from the board, Yuzu needs to be vigilant. At the moment is is unaware that she is being hunted down by both Sora and Jean-Rogers, but I am counting on Reiji to send Tsukikage to search for her in their steed to ensure her protection. I mean, he looked pretty furious himself in the preview, so I am crossing my fingers it is because of how disgusting Sergey is. It would also be a good opportunity to start gathering the team together again. Those who have been sent underground need to get the hell out because Academia is about to invade, and as soon as Reiji is aware of their presence in the city, he will need to round of the lancers altogether to ensure the safety of the group. The Synchro Realm will not protect them so they have no choice but to fend for themselves.
Next week, Yuuya will be up against Shinji… and I think it’s fairly obvious Yuuya is going to win. So there’s that. Bottom line is, I hope we don’t have to wait ten episodes before we know of Yuzu’s condition, because that would drive me bonkers.
