THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
The more I think about it, the more I think Ghost Girl is really skilled considering how unpredictable her strategies are. Playmaker played well imo. Anyone in his situation would of been stressed as hell but he kept his cool.

> Data removed
Ha, I even like Ghost Girl's personality in this show. Hope she will play even more improtant roles later on.

This show just gets better and better, each and every episode. I can't help but expect a disappointing episode at one point, but things just get more interesting and engaging. I'm genuinely really impressed.

Yusaku is also growing on me a lot as a protaganist. He's kinda bland, but I think that's the point, given he has no memories and I feel so bad for him because of it. He's a bland character, but done right imo as the viewer can still care and feel sorry for him, and as a result get invested in his character.

The duel was probably the best in the series so far from a technical standpoint. I really enjoyed how back and forth it was, but I still personally prefer the Yusaku vs Revolver one due to it's unpredictabilty, which created a much more tense atmosphere. But overall, a really great and enjoyable episode. I can't wait for next week, to potentially find out more about Yusaku's past, and to see more of Aoi.

I disagree that this episode was good. Once again it was only a single turn for the entire episode, which made it feel extremely slow (I now absolutely hate the 4-turn formula they're using for the speed duels. I hoped that with the new director it will be dropped, but meh. I'm honestly already sick of speed duels due to how boring and repetitive they are). The duel writing wasn't any better either with all of the gimmicky and extremely situational effects of Yusaku's monsters (he didn't used even a single spell/trap card this duel btw, another minus). One of his monsters even required the activation of his Cyberse monster's effect to be negated to be Special Summoned. I mean, what kind of bs is this? These effects were so impractical and situational, that it made me physically hurt. No wonder Cyberse sucks. And what was the point of frog and pigeon being there again, other than getting on my nerves? I feel they included them only so they could fill the required time lenght. And the joke with the deleted data could've been funny, if they didn't already did it literally 2 episodes ago. Also the animation looked kinda inconsistent, especially during the surf scenes, but that might have been from the stream, need to check it again when it comes out. And I felt it was kinda strange for Excode to be used now, when its supposed to come out in October. Overall, I rate it as bad as episode 5. They really need to change the speed duel structure, or drop them altogether.

Speed Duel 's environment really have changed big time compared to how it was with the previous director. Its more colorful and alive.

To be fair I think picture of Ghost Girl on a bed is worth more than the recording of the duel. lel.
Alicization for AOTY

The amount of effect chaining in this episode though.
"Sore wa dou kana" xD

Is Excode's effect permanent or just for Yuusaku's turn? Cause if it's the former then how is that even fair in a duel with only 3 main monster zones?
I also feel there's a little too much reliance on Storm Access.

The effect remains as long as Excode is on the field.

Yeah, that's what I was trying to get at by saying permanent but damn, that is totally OP for a speed duel.

He was really cool when he saved her, but the duel was boring, no feeling in it.

So the conclusion of the duel, Yusaku he don't play around. He had this duel in hand all along didn't he. Yusaku had no help from Ai, he is a terrible actor, from now Yusaku should just duel without him trying to help.

Well Emma kept her word, so she has some honor at least. I wonder what she will do next? And those poor reporters, second time in a row they got their big story erased.

An okay episode, I am more excited for the next episode, and we will somebody find out Playmaker's identity or who?

Pretty good back and forth duel there I enjoyed it.

Interesting skill Ghost Girl had, it nearly stopped Playmaker's skill.

Nice save there by Playmaker and a good combo to end the duel.

Next episode should be very good to watch, looking forward to it.

When are we going to get a duel that doesn't have Yusaku in it.Ghost Girl put up a impressive fight even though she lost I really like how smart she is I hope she doesn't put in the bus and become part of the main cast until the show is over.Can they let Playmaker win without using storm access like everyone else.Every YGO series they give something ass pull to the MC to win duels without letting them win normally.Underneath Yusakus aloof and cold icy demeanour he is caring,heroic and has a nice side to his personality I like how he rescued Ghost Girl
Frog and Pigeon are their for comic reliefs and whenever they attempt to create something special for Playmaker their plan always backfires and deleted by the hackers Frog and Pigeon never catches a break poor guys first it was Yusaku and now it is Emma who is trolling them.
Aoi will be coming back next week and she will play a relevant role in 16 and 17 helping Yusaku and hopefully Yusaku is grateful for her help and slowly comes to trust her and she will also come to trust him and hopefully Yusaku will tell his identity to her instead of she finding out I am pretty sure once Aoi knows Yusakus identity she would come to understand.
When Aoi went for coma many people are whining about her coming back but what about Go he went for MIA for almost 10 episodes and we haven't seen him for a while

Gotta love that green lighting.
Ai is such a bad actor lel. I feel bad for the reporters, just getting rekt again and again. Feel like they will always follow Playmaker.

Emma best girl I guess.
