Sounds more like something along the lines of the Sports Duel Tournament or Couple Duel Tournament to me, but we'll see I guess. Either way, while I wouldn't say it's too early for a tournament arc (the Fortune Cup started around this time; Episode 15, if I recall), this tournament doesn't really sound like the sort of thing a big arc will be made of.
My thoughts exactly, though bother isn't the word I'd use. I was really thinking the same about Gongenzaka(?) before his duel. Now I actually kinda like him, though I wish he'd can it with the "incarnation of man" garbage.But the fat kid needs to go. He's a bother.
That's been a problem since like ZEXAL, sadly. I've already come to the conclusion that I don't like Yuya's deck at all. His Entermate monsters look too cartoonish and childish for my tastes.Anyone else get annoyed at everyone in the show having their ace monster and always using it. I'm particularly getting annoyed that every time Yuya pendulum summons, Odd Eyes is always just magically in his hand. I'd like it better if there was a bit more strategy other than "get your favorite monster out on the field as fast as possible" mentality.
To be fair, ace monster abuse was a thing in 5Ds as well (post-DS Arc, anyway; not so much before then). It definitely grew more pronounced in ZEXAL though, especially with Yuma who had a myriad of other options at any given time.That's been a problem since like ZEXAL, sadly.

I agree. I hated that in ZEXAL and the newest summary for Episode 17 makes me think of Yuma as well:It was a thing in 5Ds, but it wasn't really that bad as they at least remembered they had other cards in their decks. Same with Arc-V so far, though Yuya always starting with Odd Eyes is going to be a pain. ZeXal, on the other hand was just horrible about it.
Yuya's been decent so far, but my respect for him may take a dive in that episode.Yuya faces a ferocious attack against Michio Mokota’s Cooking Duel. Fighting against Michio who concocts a perfect strategy with his recipes, yet Yuya does not have enough stamina to obtain Action Cards as his stomach is empty… However, in the midst of the pinch, Yuya meets with his savior, providing him with the stamina he needs to fight on. And then, with his Entertainment Duel, the counter-attack begins.
