First things first, these episodes were originally meant to be only a two parter, but I found the the second part was a little too long, so I split it further. On the subject of Sartorius’ revival, it had always stuck with me that at the end of the GX Society of Light arc, they stressed that the Light of Destruction isn’t gone completely. As soon as the idea hit me to use the Society of Light, I knew I would have to finish off that open-ended plot. One interesting thing of note about the deck that Sartorius used: in case you don’t know, the Arcana Force monsters are based off the the Major Arcana of tarot cards. It always bugged me that there were missing Arcana Force monsters, when it was so obvious what could be done with them, so this was the perfect time to fill in the gaps, which I did. Counting the real Arcana Force monsters, the anime exclusive ones, and the ones I made, every single Major Arcana is now accounted for.
Sorry that I don’t have much else to say, but it’s been to long.
The 99th episode is out now. Make sure to read it here.
In the epic conclusion of the Society of Light arc, Yuni must defeat Sartorius’ ultimate Arcana Force monster and find the power to rewrite his own destiny. Is the future predetermined? Is fate pre-written?
Also, next Friday is the release of Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, so just as I did last year for X and Y, I will be taking a several week break from writing in order to play these games to their full extant. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Yuni finds him self face to face with a ghost from the past, Sartorius, the revived leader of the Society of Light. A duel ensues. Sartorius assures Yuni that fate is predetermined and there is nothing he can do to change it. Despite this, Yuni duels with all his might to stop the evil that is the Light of Destruction.
War has been declared. The Society of Light has launched an all out offensive against the Society of Chaos. Now Yuni must lead an army of his followers in order to defend their way of life, and stop the Society of Light once and for all.
The goal of this episode was further the integration of the Society of Light into the season. As soon as I decided to bring the Society of Light into this season, I knew that I would have to bring back an old character who has now been taken over by the Society. I chose Sasuke, partly because of my bias towards ninjas, and partly because of the connection he forged with Yuni back in Season 1. Before now, it actually hadn’t been confirmed that any of the Duel Sanctuary finalists besides Tori and Brutus had been freed from Apep, as Yuni has yet to see any of them sense then.
The 90th episode of Yu-Gi-Oh! Millennium is out now! Read it here.
In the process of attempting to convince the world of the danger that New Yugoha posses to the world, Yuni is kidnapped by an old friend turned enemy by the Society of Light. When he is forced to duel for his freedom, how will Yuni fare?
A quick piece of trivia I forgot to give before, the three Weapons of Yugoha are called the Chronoton Staff, Graviton Cannon, and Higgs Boson Shield. Two of those three names come from theoretical, subatomic particles in Quantum Physics. A chronoton is theoretical particle that deals with time, while a graviton transfers the force of gravity. The Higgs Boson is a special particle that was theorized to give mass to matter. It was discovered just over a year ago. So in a way, we have particles dealing with time, space, and reality.
A Call to Arms, first off, is the first episode to feature Ma’at in a prominent role, but not have Order in the episode’s title. For all intents and purposes, this episode ends the Yuni vs. Ma’at story line that we’ve been following. From this point on, those two are allies, at least until I decide otherwise of course. The most shocking (or maybe not, if you’re a Yu-Gi-Oh expert, and picked up all of my hints) reveal of the episode was the end, where we learn that the mysterious hooded man of light is in fact Sartorius, leader of the Society of Light. For those who don’t remember or know, the Society of Light was an organization from Yu-Gi-Oh! GX, which was created so that the evil Light of Destruction could take over the Earth (destroy it in the Japanese version). What does this mean for Yu-Gi-Oh! Millennium? You’ll just have to keep on reading.
