Wow, we knew the Synchro Realm was beyond stupid to begin with, but my god, what gullible fools they are! Everyone saw the Obelisk Force flying through the air, and is the first thing that comes to mind? Oh they must be entertainers! Oh yeah, sure they are! Entertainers running around the streets in shady uniform and creepy masks, hopping and dashing around roof-tops, shooting up flares and such- yeah, sure, totally not shady stuff going on. At this point even if Academia was initiating the invasion, these idiots wouldn’t even realize it until they are taken over. I bet they would think that people being turned into cards is a magic trick! And the board! Don’t even get me started on those morons. Thank god Reiji is now taking into consideration of what I had hoped of him last week, of using this opportunity to determine whether or not they should form an alliance with the Synchro Realm, because right now the board of morons are more impressed with Jean’s one man army Sergey. Like wow, this Jean just tried to overthrow you guys and you’re fucking impressed now? These idiots don’t want to do shit, and I honestly can’t wait to see it come back to bite them in the ass. I sincerely hope Reiji will come to the conclusion they are not worth forming an official alliance with, maybe pick up a few strong friends they made along the way, but that’s about it.
Oh, and aren’t they in for an extra special treat? According to the preview, Shinji who has been sent underground, surely wasn’t going to stay silent while he was there! Oh no, he has been organizing and riling up the people, calling out to start their revolution right at the worse possible time. And frankly speaking, this is exactly what I was concerned about so many episodes ago. The timing of this happening is at its worst- and at this point, I do wonder if we will actually see the tournament finish. It’s just going to get super ugly at this point because this is how it is going to escalate:
Commons Rebellion VS TOPS/ Jean’s Security Force VS Lancers VS Obelisk Force
So right now, the two sole parties that are fighting everyone/anyone who gets in their way, are the Lancers and Obelisk Force, both outsiders of this realm. However there is a major concern of mine regarding the Commons Rebellion and the Obelisk Force. The worst possible scenario to happen is this:
The Obelisk Force or Yuuri decides to exploit this opportunity by making a deal with the Commons Rebellion of: If they find Yuzu and/or Selena and hand them over, they will support their fight against the TOPS and Jean’s forces. I mean, these guys are fucking idiots who will take a hold of any opportunity they are provided, and I have little to no doubt Shinji would say, ‘The enemy of my enemy is my friend.’
…And then later get betrayed by Academia.
With the chaos unraveling, the Lancers are now forced to take action. With the Obelisk Forces all over the city (well over twenty, that’s for sure), Tsukikage, Reira and Selena knew it was only a matter of time before they would be found. Selena told them to leave her behind, but Reira takes a stand, telling Tsukikage he will protect her and buy them time to inform their allies underground. He proves to Tsukikage he can hold his own, and Tsukikage goes off but is trailed by the forces, making it impossible for him to go straight underground, fearing he would lead them to where their hideout and Yuzu is. He is forced to fight, and almost loses, but thankfully- Sora, (bless this kid, I am so proud of him! ; ___ 😉 jumps into the fight and helps Tsukikage defeat them, and basically saved his life. I was crying tears of joy because that was no easy decision. He just revealed right then and there that he has officially betrayed Academia! But the icing on the cake was having the Obelisk Force have a taste of their own medicine.Although the grudge will remain, Tsuikage is thankful for Sora’s help, and it was great how genuinely happy Sora was to do so.
And then we have our courageous kid Reira! Damn he is strong! He was able to stand his ground against a number of Obelisk Forces, but then as he was becoming more and more worn out, his post-traumatic stress kicked in, and he couldn’t do anything. Luckily Yuuya was not only able to snap out of it, but arrive at the nick of time to take over the fight. Thank god for D-Wheels! Oh and the flares, but it’s like a double-edge sword because now Yuuri and every other Obelisk Force member knows the location too, so they need to move fast, FFFF——!!!!! JUMP ON THE D-WHEEL AND SPEED AWAY!
Although this was quite an intense and fast paced episode, the beginning was absolutely priceless. Yuuri tries to bait Yuugo out by saying he will tell him where Rin is, if he in return tell him where Yuzu is, but Yuugo thinks Yuzu is dead, so he tells him Yuzu is in his heart, and Yuuri is like WTF, and had the best reaction! I was laughing so much and so hard, I had tears in my eyes! Yuugo is definitely Yuuri’s ultimate weakness, because he was like, ‘Fuck this shit, I’m out.’ He absolutely does not want to wait his breath or time with Yuugo and in a way, can be (humorously) interpreted as running away!
That is all I have to say about this week’s episode, it flew by like the wind! Excited and anxious for how everything is going to blow up next week, lets see how Yuuya can handle the Obelisk Force on his own, since this will be the first time taking them on, without being in the Berserk State!
