    Does Yubel count? I know it's from way back in GX, but Yubel was the main villain for a season so there is precedent.

    Wasn't Yubel a hermaphrodite in the Japanese version of GX?

    Which is why I'm asking if it counts or not.

    In the dub she is. But did anyone really cared about her being multi-gendered in the original?

    Yubel's gender remains a controversial topic, but in the original dub their gender was largely a plot device for enhancing Jaden and Jesse's relationship in S3 and S4, which was of course way more flamboyant in the original.

    As for Pandor, as long as Ai remains the final battle like Nasch she would be fine as the true final boss like Don Thousand/Z-ARC/Nightshroud/Zorc etc..

    Oh I just know that we'll see some kind of fusion of Yusaku and Ai during the final duel, like Yuma and Astral's Zexal mode. It just seems so inevitable now and would be symbolic too.

    Finally the Zaizen's know Playmaker's secret identity! (maybe Soulburner's too) I actually liked the gathering of the major characters and the scene with Yusaku and Skye was cute (normally I don't ship but still I liked the scene). Also when was the last time we saw the Kings of SOL?

    I wonder how things are going to play out in the next few episodes because it feels like the end of a season, even though we're 3 episodes in.

    Wow Aoi took Yusaku's secret pretty well. The whole scene was cute and all, I just expected a more surprised reaction from her and Zaizen. Well whatever. I'm liking how quickly things have escalated, but I'm worried about the fact that Ai and Roboppi are so outnumbered. It means that a bunch of the characters will probably be fodderized off screen quickly so that only a few will remain to have serious duels with Ai and Roboppi.

  9. Oh man looks like two Knights of Hanoi already lost offscreen so it looks like Blood Sheppard and Emma will lose next. That leaves only a few characters left so at least this arc is starting off fast.

    LAAAAAME. Losing a duel no longer feels like a big deal, i'm sure ghost girl and blood shepard will return safe and sound when the arc ends... sigh...this is so boring, a least in arc-v, when the academia invaded, the losers were turned into cards, their souls trapped to be used as fuel for the professor's evil plans. Now, when it happens again so quickly, it loses all the weight it could have. specter and the knights of hanoi are returning, Go will lose but who cares, he's also returning, at this point i don't care at all what happens to SOL or akira, AI can accomplish his goal or be stopped right in the next episode, i couldn't care less.

    Roboppi's deck is OP and the 2 on 1 duel was only beneficial to roboppi because the board and LP are shared, meaning 1 of the pair can only make their plays every 4 turns. The mysterious female figure in the opening is already revealed, the brand new character is given a very unfair advantage and AI's just cutting through opponents like a 1000º knife cuts through butter. This arc is starting really badly. The only redeeming factor is Go has his gouki deck back, which i'm a fan of. I can't believe i'm saying this but i much rather watch 5d's xyz heartland arc than this.

    Think you got 5DS confused with Arc-V. People just die in 5DS, no turning into cards shenanigans.

    I didn't think that Spectre would lose off screen like that. I was totally expecting Emma and Blood Shepherd to lose though and since they'll be revived again somehow, their 'deaths' had no impact. I really hated how Roboppi won despite her rawness at the game. It happened because of plot sure, but it still stings.

    And his cards are so plot convenient it hurts. It's not that this didn't happened before but with roboppi, it really felt forced.

    Yes, i meant arc-v and was sure i was typing arc-V XD.

    No one truly dies in Yu-Gi-Oh! unless you're a very evil villain

    Even then you just get redeemed instead.

    Yeah, Zorc sure got redeemed. Not obliterated from existence by holy magical light.
