These episodes were a massive undertaking. The big purpose of them was to give Order the back story it lacked when compared to Chaos. While Chaos may have had three seasons to develop a story, Order had been fairly stagnant story-wise, and needed this for some catch-up. An interesting side-effect of these episodes was the story of Valex. In all honesty the original plan for these episodes was to bring in some story for Order and then have a final showdown. Last second I decided that Valex’s character had been to plain and flat. In all honesty, I thought it was boring to write for him. So I made the last minute addition to his character, and I feel that it worked out perfectly.
Episode 96 can be found here.
Ma’at and Valex begin their final duel of Order at the Ruins of Order to determine once and for all who is the greater controller of Order. However, all is not what it seems with Valex. Ma’at quickly learns that his history is not what is expected.
Until next time, duel on!

This episode was the first time that we’ve seen Ma’at since loosing to Yuni. It obvious that the combination of the vision of the first Lord of Order and Yuni’s mercy towards him has had a major impact on him. Ma’at’s question of the true meaning of Order only gets more complicated when e learns that the New Yugohans use Order as well. One thing I have to admit to. Normally when making the names of cards, I try to use names that would actually appear in the TCG or English anime, including the censoring. “Demon” becomes “Archfiend”, “Death” becomes “Des,” “Angel” becomes “Archlord,” and so on. I let that slip a little by calling an archetype the Cult of Order, since it would never be allowed to be called a cult in English. I thought that it was just too good of a name to give up, and not all that bad, so I did it anyways. However, I did sensor some other card ideas. The card Ritual Supply might have been called Volunteers for Tribute in Japan (you get it, right?). The same applied to several other cards used by Valex.
Until next time, duel on!
