This episode started a new subplot of the season. My original plan for this subplot used a group known as the League of Light, a group which would act as a counterpart to the Disciples of Darkness. I opted out of using the League for an option that allowed for more surprise and complexity of story. Who is this mysterious society? You’ll just have to keep on reading to find out. This episode also addressed the problem of the seemingly disinterest that Yuni has taken in the affairs of the Society of Chaos. It is here that Yuni begins to realize that being Lord of Chaos means a lot more than just dealing with the bad guys. One last note, Apollo’s deck, the Incarnates, was based off of the ancient Japanese deities known as the Lucky Gods. They were the first ever Spirit Monsters that I’ve ever created. On top of that, if they were real, they would be the first ever archetype of Spirit Monsters.
Until next time, duel on!
