Episode 63 Review

***Spoiler Alert***

I think that it can go unsaid that my idea for this episode, along with the next few, were inspired by the Virtual World Arc of original Yu-Gi-Oh. This was one of my earlier concept ideas back when I was planning the World of Duel Tournament. I thought that it would add an interesting element to the finals. I figured that being a hunt for the next King of Games, the World of Duel needed to test people in aspects beyond just standard dueling. Yuni’s “duel” with Yugi was a last minute addition. I figured that it would be interesting to have the two battle each other.

Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V and Pendulum Monsters

A while ago I posted about the next Yu-Gi-Oh, Arc-V, soon after that it was announced that the new type of monsters would be called Pendulum Monsters. Just last night, these mysterious monsters where finally explained.

This is a Pendulum Monster:

Notice two things, its is half-spell, half monster, and there is an extra text box with red and blue marks. These monsters are placed in the main deck. When you activate them, you place them in one of two new zones on the field known as the Pendulum Zone. The two Pendulum Zones are one either side of the field. While in these zones, these cards count as spells, and as thus, activate the effect in the extra text box. Once you have both zones filled, you can perform a Pendulum Summon. What you do is look at your two Pendulum Monsters, look at their scales (the red and blue marks, the blue mark for the monster in the left zone, and the red for the one on the right), then, from your hand and/or Extra Deck (more on the Extra Deck later) you can summon as many monsters as possible that have a level in between the two scales (Example: a blue scale of one, and a red scale of eight can summon any number of monster that is from level two to seven). If a monster in the Pendulum Zone is destroyed, it is placed face up on top of the Extra Deck. When Pendulum Summoning, if you chose to summon from the extra deck, you can summon the Pendulum Monsters that are there. This is the only way to summon a Pendulum Monster as a monster. You can only Pendulum Summon once per turn.

Please note: I reserve the right to be wrong on any part of the explanation.

In addition, two new rules have been announced. Starting with the release of Arc-V, the player who takes the first turn will not draw, meaning that they play with only five cards. Also, two field spells can be on the field at the same time.

How does this new mechanic and these new rules affect the future of Yu-Gi-Oh! Millennium? You’re just going to have to wait and find out.

Episode 60 and 61 Review

***Spoiler Alert***

The conclusion to Seto’s fall into Darkness, and also the reveal of his brother, Kodane. Off course, Kodane was technically introduced back in Season one, as a character drive for Seto, but he was never mentioned by name. He was merely called “little brother.” Kodane is meant to based upon Mokuba Kaiba, and as thus looks a lot like him. The word kodane is actually the Japanese word for kin. An interesting fact, in the past couple of episodes, both Yuni and Seto have gotten new upgrades to their signature monsters. Yuni’s monster was initially a Dark attribute, while Discordon is a Light attribute. Conversely, Cosmic Plasma Dragon is a Light attribute, and Dark Cosmic Void Dragon is a Dark. In a true spirit of Chaos, the two swapped attributes.
