Episodes 132 and 133 Review

These two episodes where meant to accomplish two things. First, it was to serve as tribute to Yu-Gi-Oh! Millennium as a whole, being one of the final moments in the series before the finale arc. It did through all of the memories and flashbacks, taking us on a trip back through the series. Second, it was supposed to be the most “fanfictiony” episode of the series. I mean come on, it’s my own custom character up against the original character, it doesn’t get much more “fanfictiony” that that.

Before I started these episodes, I wanted to completely overhaul Yugi’s deck in order to give him more of a fighting chance against Yuni. I was going to give him a heavily Dark Magician-themed deck. However, as I wrote the duel, I found that I didn’t necessarily need to do that. Instead, I decided to use as many real (or anime) cards as possible, this also helped with that “fanfiction feeling” I was talking about earlier. Sure, I had to make a card here and there to make it all work out, such as the Magnetic Attraction to make summoning Valkyrion more feasible or a card to make it possible to summon Dark Sage without Time Wizard, but in the end I used mostly cards that Yugi had used, and I was proud of that.

The final two turns where Yuni and Yugi summoned their army of magicians has actually been in planning for a long time. It started off as an idea where Yuni got out all of his Cyber-Tech Magicians in a duel against Ottiuk, but them I decided that it would be even cooler to have Yugi do the same, and them face each other like this. For a while I wasn’t sure how I would ever get them to pull off the move without activating several drawing cards in one turn. Then I realized that using Yugi opened up the possibility of using the anime effect of Cards of Sanctity, the most ridiculous drawing card ever created. And with that, the turns became possible.

Until next time, duel on!

Episode 121 Review

The first thing I want to point out is a minor retcon I made to the original series with this episode. Originally, when Mahad gave up his life to protect the Pharaoh, he became the Dark Magician. In the duel I just wrote, I had Atem’s signature monster be called the Millennium Magician instead of the Dark Magician. I figured it just wouldn’t make sense if Timaeus had the Atlantis Magician, Yuni the Cyber-Tech Magician, but both Yugi and Atem had the Dark Magician, so I changed Atem’s to the Millennium Magician, both to give him something different, and something that fit better into the deck I had created for him. As for his deck itself, I figured that each of his monster are the actual spirits of the Millennium Items themselves.

Until next time, duel on!

Episode 73: Redemption Part 2

Episode 73 is out now. Find it here.

Yuni and Seto’s duel continues. After both lose their Yugohan Lord cards, the two rivals look to their ace monsters, Cyber-Tech Magician and Cosmic Plasma Dragon, two monsters who have fought twice before. But when things take a turn for the worse, and Seto gives into his dark half, can Yuni redeem him?

Until next time, duel on!

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.

Episode 58 and 59 Review

***Spoiler Alert***

And so the Chaos Realm Saga comes to an end…

To start this review off, I would like to point out the fact that every single monster used by Yuni in this duel was either a Light or a Dark attribute, since it was his first duel as a Lord of Chaos. These episodes were some of those episodes that I had planned from the very beginning. I knew all along that this duel was going to end with a new incarnation of Cyber-Tech Magician and the introduction of the Chaos Relics. When Yuni managed to draw the Chaos Relics, he was proving that he is one of the greatest, if not the greatest Lord of Chaos to ever exist, since he now has the ability to call upon cards that none before him ever had. Probably the most interesting part of two episodes was the way they ended, with the revelation that Otto is actually some sort of Spirit of Darkness name Ottiuk. What repercussion could this hold for the series? You’ll just have to wait and find out.
