As far as I remember, Yuuya’s ways of charming the crowd usually excites me, but this time… I felt as though there was a disconnection. Now I don’t know if is because I’m sick with a fever, but I wasn’t buying into the citizens enthusiasm. Furthermore, I was disappointed with how quickly the duel ended. I was actually hoping it would at least take up an entire episode because it felt so short. It is a problem I have noticed to be frequent problem when duels are wrapped up half an episode later. The build-up from where Yuuya found his resolve at the end of last week’s episode had been cut off with a week break- which perhaps was why I struggled to feel the citizen’s enthusiasm that followed along with Yuuya’s path to victory. Nevertheless, despite having difficulties connecting with the first half, it was still cute and I really like that Yuuya is finally owning his position as The Founder of Pendulum Summon.
On the other hand, the second half of the episode had a greater appeal. I think it appealed to me a lot more because not only Yuzu has some sassy moments while calling Jean Rogers out on his cowardice, but we finally get to see Reiji actively involved again. How many episodes has it been since we have actually seen Reiji fight? When I think back, I think we have only seen Reiji actually duel three or four times throughout the entire series- and I am referring to full duels, not little in between ones with hardly any screen-time. Now he will be engaged in a duel against Jean Rogers, who is losing his mind- and yapping on about how he’s invincible and all that BS. But, I have enough faith in Reiji to know, while he is being challenged for once, Reiji will definitely will beat him- or at least I am super confident about it. I would be shocked if it were to lose- solely to give Yuuya room to fight, which would be super unnecessary since Yuuya just had his epic duel with the King.
Speaking of the King…. As he has been defeated, he no longer holds the title- but at the same time, the board announces their disbandment, and by doing so- everyone is equal. This part had be scratching my head a bit, but whatever I don’t care about that anymore, the Synchro Realm is almost over- thank goodness… (But wait! What about Yuugo now?!?!? Will he join them? I wonder if he can… We haven’t seen him since the crazy shit happened when he was up against Yuuri.) but it seems that now Jack is just a person and will go back to doing whatever he was doing beforehand- actually you know what, he probably going to want to have some tea.
Lastly, Jean Roger’s desperate back up plan was super predictable. I saw this coming weeks ago. Jean Roger is attempting to use Yuzu as a bargaining chip to be a part of Academia once more.
Next week, it will be a one hour special featuring Episode 99 & 100!!!! WOOOOOO! See you next week!
Random Note of the Week: WAIT, JAEGER HE IS IN THIS CITY?!?!?! I wonder if that means we might see Yusei working in a garage somewhere on D-Wheels.
