    Varian's new outfit is pretty neat. Seeing Varian being that worried about someone, despite how it was a trick, was pretty sweet. His redemption happened a lot sooner than I thought it would, but it is nice to see how he has changed. It does come off as pretty touching and genuine. I wonder what role he'll have for the rest of the season.

    Indeed. I honestly wasn't expecting him to get a new outfit given that Lance still has his Season 1 attire so that was pretty cool.

    I'm guessing that around either Beginnings or Be Very Afraid, Varian won't be left out of the loop on what happened to Cassandra anymore and that Rapunzel will tell him about what went down at the Dark Kingdom with Varian wanting to assist to Rapunzel in trying to bring Cass back to normal as a result since he was given top billing in Season 3's opening.

    That does make sense. It would be kind of strange if no one had already told Varian what happened to Cassandra or that he didn't ask about her after they saved Corona. Rapunzel is obviously trying to keep herself busy from thinking about Cassandra, but they've probably been back in Corona for at least a week or so in-universe, so Eugene could have told Varian about what happened by now. I could still see Varian determined to help Cassandra to further help atone for what he did and due to his crush on her.
    So it looks like details on the new series got leaked again.
    Pokémon (2019) will premiere on November 17th, 2019 in Japan Ash's friend is either an anime exclusive female character
    or a character from Sword & Shield that hasn't been revealed yet.

    Yeah, the hair clip and eyelashes most likely means that they are a girl. Hopefully that will be clearer in the trailer. I also don’t really see the advantage of a reboot or having movie Ash become the lead of the next series. The anime doesn’t have a huge amount of continuity to make it harder for new kids to jump into it. Each series is pretty much stand alone with some references to past adventure thrown in there, so I don’t really see what they’d get out of a reboot of the anime at this point.

    Pokémon (2019)'s TV Tokyo website had a news update.

    New characters:
    Dr. Sakuragi
    Voiced by Yuichi Nakamura (N's seyiu from Best Wishes!)

    Dr. Sakuragi is a Pokémon professor who's also the head of the Sakuragi Laboratory in Vermilion City in the Kanto region.
    He continues to research Pokémon while also supporting our heroes.
    Koharu
    Voiced by Kana Hanazawa (Sera's seiyu from Yu-Gi-Oh! The Dark Side of Dimensions)


    A 10 year old girl who goes to school. She's Dr. Sakuragi's daughter and has been friends with Go since she was little.
    Her Yamper really loves her.

    Setting:
    Ash and Go will be moving into and living in Dr. Sakuragi's Lab in-between their adventures across
    Kanto, Johto, Hoenn, Sinnoh, Unova, Kalos, Alola and the Galar region.
    They'll leave and return to Kanto via Vermilion City's sea port.

    I heard about the new professor having N's Japanese voice actor, but I didn't know about Koharu having Sera's Japanese voice actress. That's pretty neat. I'm not sure why they Ash and Go would need a home base, but hopefully they'll still be traveling frequently. Ash rarely left Melmele Island for a long period of time. I was hoping that Koharu would be the female lead of the series, especially when people are still panicking over the thought that there wouldn't be one, but I don't know if that is less likely if she's just going to school.

    Yeah, I figured that was going to be a possibility given how you've said more than once that you aren't the best with starting a conversation, but it's all good. Yeah I know we didn't see many characters, at least not dueling in the movie itself. I'm not surprised most aren't available right away like Diva, but the lack of Yugi really was still a shock. When the movie was based around him vs Kaiba it made sense for Yugi to be in the world instantly, especially so it wasn't like the DM world where he won't be around for who knows how long. I can see them trying to expand the amount of duelists by having two forms of Diva, the normal, and then the Zorc/Millennium Ring possessed version. After the GX world added Judai/Yubel it wouldn't shock me at this point. I hear you there, Scud is a waste of an added character but I am working on unlocking his unlock missions now anyway for Gems and stuff.

    Yeah, definitely. Of course, I mean it wouldn't be the start of a new series if the protagonist didn't win anyway. I never mind as long as the plot armor works fine. I still think that's why I like DM's first duel so much since it didn't make Kaiba weak, and later on Yugi never had to rely on Exodia again. As you said though it worked well for Arc-V as Pendulum cards had just come into existence during that duel, which was a real nice explanation later on at the end of the series why they came to be. They were worked in well, transforming his cards instead of the cards being magically added to his deck. That was something that sorta always irked me with the Extra Deck was how cards just kind of appeared. I think that's about the one thing I liked about Vrains is that they gave an explanation where at least Yusaku's cards come from as his skill did it. As for Yuma though he certainly never did get better. At least to me. I feel like they just winged it too much with him.

    Thanks, I'll need that support. Gonna still be another long 3 weeks til I take a vacation week from it. I am off tomorrow so I might try to see if I can fit in some time to watch those last episodes. Yugi vs Judai bothered me at the time because inconclusive duels hadn't been a major thing yet. I think as far as the franchise went the only one had really been Manjoume vs Judai which Judai explained he would have just won on his next turn anyway. Nowadays it wouldn't probably bother me as much. The only reason I thought you would maybe like the ending would be simply because you were glad the series was over with now.
    Hidden Mew

    Yeah, it would have made sense to include Yugi, Jonouchi and Anzu. Diva and possibly Atem being event exclusives make sense, but it just seems like such a strange choice to not include at least Yugi from the start. It makes the whole DSOD world feel so barren. I don't know if they'll give multiple forms to other characters. That is still possible, especially when there aren't a lot of DSOD characters for them to choose from, but I feel like season four Judai was an exception instead of the start of a trend. I was also hoping that there would be more improvements to the Kiryu event. I do appreciate some of the changes they added to the event, but it still feels too tedious and frustrating. Being able to draw two cards and normal summon twice every turn should also really be the standard instead of something we have buy with our gems to use though.

    I never thought of the Exodia combo as plot armor, but that does make sense. They were smart in removing that instant victory from Yugi so early on in Duelist Kingdom. While he wouldn't automatically get the cards for Exodia every time, that still would have weakened the tension too much. I really miss feeling any kind of tension in a Yu-Gi-Oh! series. The protagonists won the vast majority of the time, but we usually didn't know how they'd win and for some cases like with Yuya, there was still the chance that they could lose even with something big on the line.

    You're welcome. I hope that you'll be able to get a break. I'm not sure if you have seen the last few episodes, but I'm curious how you'll feel about them whenever you are able to watch them. Indecisive duels were definitely uncommon at that time, so I can understand why that would have been upsetting to you at the time. That is a reasonable assumption, but I think I would have only felt happy about the ending if I thought it was genuinely good. I'm glad that the series is over, but I could have dropped it any time if that was the main goal for me. Honestly, it's only been a couple of weeks and I still find myself thinking "Oh yeah, Vrains exists." Despite how much I dislike the series and how I can write pages of my many complaints about it, I really don't think that Vrains is too memorable. It's just kind of there. I just hope that we'll get more information about the new series sooner rather than later and we get a new head writer.

    Yeah if it's going to act as it's own world there was no reason for us to at least get Yugi, and Jonouchi from the start. Even if we didn't get Anzu. Not like the lack of dueling in the movie is a valid excuse, otherwise we wouldn't even have Scud, or Mokuba for that matter. Judai could be a one shot deal, you're right, but who knows? On the one hand of things though us getting this DSOD world with variants of characters makes me hopeful that when we do get an Arc-V world we'll get people like their version of Jack, Crow, Asuka, ect as unlock characters in their world. Might be hoping for a lot though since Arc-V can have plenty of characters on its own without alternate versions of past characters. Really, you still don't like the Kiryu event? I'm actually pleased myself with the changes. I like that they made his deck easier to contend with, made it so you actually have 5 full turns to work with, and that any support duel cost you 0 items the first time you join said duel, with you getting all points of the original life points even if you joined at like 8000 life points left. It became super easy to get a million points a day, I feel.

    Yeah, because if Exodia was a main part of his deck then the separate pieces would either always be a dead draw, or he'd somehow never draw a single piece during the duel, unless of course it was written for him to win via its effect. Agreed. While sometimes tension would be mixed in, such as in GX, or 5D's, I'd never really get the vibe that the protagonist was going to lose. The latter was bad about that. It wasn't until Arc-V again that I'd felt that tension, and possibility that the main character could lose since they did make it a point to show that he could be defeated, as shown from that duel with him and Reiji before they jumped to the Synchro Dimension.

    Well I had a bit of a break today. As I knew I'd be gone from my home most of the day yesterday until very late (1am in this case) on a brief trip, and as I wanted to see an early morning football game today I took the day off from work. That being said I did work in some time during this early evening to finally watch those episodes since I felt I could only say to you "eventually" so many times haha. So first I can see what you meant about the ending. To me it doesn't even felt like an ending, almost more like it was a hiatus honestly, especially given the question left out there with the last 20 seconds of the last episode. The duel itself wasn't awful. It seemed fitting enough for a last duel, albeit a bit over the top for a what, 5 turn duel? I think that having Ai play out his future simulations, seeing that Yusaku would be killed was kinda dumb though. For that to be implied how it was shown Ai would have had to turn on humanity almost instantly. Just seemed like an unnecessary way to say "we got have some way to justify all of the ignis being erased" Personally though, especially when I saw Ai say for Yusaku to fuse with him, I thought the duel was going to end in a draw and both would end up being erased or something. I liked the ending more than I liked Zexal at least, though that isn't saying much, and you were right, it doesn't really feel fitting as an ending any way you look at it. Yeah you made that a clear point as even though you didn't like it you did opt to keep watching, even if you generally did complain about it weekly, but not like you don't have a right to do that. I know how you feel with the thought of sort of forgetting it exists though as I'd went a solid 30-40 something weeks without watching any of the episodes, or maybe even longer because I just kind of forgot about it being a thing outside of you mentioning it since I didn't entirely care for it. I'm sure new info will be out soon enough. At least before the end of the year for sure.

    That would make sense. They'd want to build up to whatever she has planned and hype up her eventual confrontation with Rapunzel. They'll have to deal with quite a bit of aftermath for her betrayal. I'm also curious about what role Varian could play for the rest of the series. The fact that he wasn't with the ship full of other villains from season one was rather telling, so I suspect that they have something planned for him as well.

    Those sound pretty cool too. I was wondering when Varian would appear. I'm still pretty sure that he took over the kingdom while Rapunzel's group was away. I'm also curious about what fearful visions the characters will have from these rocks. I wouldn't be surprised if that is related to whatever Cassandra's plans are.
    Hey. Nice profile picture!

    Welp, at D23 yesterday, it was confirmed that the Disney+ Phineas and Ferb film's title has been finalized
    as Phineas and Ferb The Movie: Candace Against the Universe. The movie will release sometime in 2020.




    Meanwhile, in Japan, I don't wanna jump the gun just yet, but the Sword & Shield anime series might finally
    be revealed at the airing of next week's episode as a summary says that there'll be a major announcement during SM137's airing.

    Thank you! I really like my new avatar too. I didn't see those new images of the Phineas and Ferb movie. It looks pretty cool. I'm hoping that they'll eventually be able to make a new season of Milo Murphy's Law too. I just saw that bit of information on Serebii and my first thought was a SWSH anime announcement. That would make the most sense for a world exclusive announcement, especially when they'd have a couple of months worth of promotion for the new series. Plus, I'd just really love to have something solid to speculate about the new series and know for sure who will be joining the cast.
    Right, I forgot to ask now that it's officially out in the US. Did you get Legacy of the Duelist?

    Not yet. I wanted to make sure that they didn't butcher the physical release. I might have been too paranoid, but this is Konami and they have pulled that stunt before. Fortunately, based on the trailer they revealed yesterday, that doesn't seem to be the case. I'll either order it online later today or go down to my local GameStop to buy it tomorrow. I am so excited to play as Arc V characters and I was really happy to see that even Odd Eyes Arc Pendulum Dragon is in the game.

Yep you can make a full Odd-Eyes deck in this game thanks to that being included.

    So long, Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS and good riddance. I honestly jumped ship after the first arc had ended.
    Hopefully the next series will actually be better than its predecessor. :ROFLMAO:
    Hidden Mew
    Hidden Mew
    Sorry that I didn't check your previous messages. I heard the news about Vrains ending this month. I knew that its timeslot was given to another series for October, but I am kind of shocked that they're actually ending the series this soon. There were signs pointing to that and I wanted Vrains to end sooner rather than later, but I didn't think that was going to happen. I kind of hope that having a longer break between this and the next series can help with any production issues and especially so that the staff isn't overworked even further. I'd also love it if Konami took the time to fix the card game rules so that players aren't forced to use Link monsters or whatever new summoning method they'll introduce next.

    The only downside of Vrains ending this month for me is really the amount of people complaining about Arc V some more. Because people still harass and belittle fans two years after it ended, which is why I try to avoid the fanbase like the plague it is. That part of the fallout is definitely going to be annoying and frustrating for me, but the bitter part of me is quite happy knowing that Vrains couldn't even last three full years.
    Galar Adventurer
    Galar Adventurer
    It's cool. But yeah, the suffering has ended (hopefully). Vrains will be concluding on September 25, 2019.
    Same here. I hope we get some news on the next series soon but we'll still probably have to wait until Jump Festa.

    But I agree on the TCG/OCG. Imo, Links were unnecessary. Reformatting the field to force players to put their Pendulum cards
    in the Spell/Trap Card Zone I get, but Master Rule 4 completely screws over the Pendulum Monsters' mechanic and some other archetypes
    in the game now making some of them virtually useless as some archetypes don't even have Link support yet. I honestly feel bad for the players
    that invested all of their real life cash into constructing Decks with those archetypes and only to have the Master Rule 4 format come in and mess everything up for them.
    Hidden Mew
    Hidden Mew
    I am still pretty surprised about it, but it does explain a lot. They wouldn't have already announced a new series back in July if Vrains wasn't close to wrapping up. There also aren't any other villains and most of the cast is out of commission. If there were more villains and if Vrains actually cared about anyone besides Yusaku, they could have stretched it at least a bit longer, but as it was, I was having a really hard time imagining how the series could last for the rest of the year, let alone until next spring. It's a shame that we don't even have the new lead's design at least, but they probably are going to hold off on that until Jump Festa. I just hope that we get a different head writer. Anyone would be a step up from Yoshida practically.

    That is a big reason as to why I don't think that Link monsters are that popular. Most new mechanics have backlash from varying degrees at first, but the reception gets more positive over time. I didn't really get the impression that happened with Link monsters. Most fans I've talked to didn't like that players are basically forced to use Link monsters and the changes to the rules effectively ruined a lot of archetypes. It's such backwards logic to change the game to force a new mechanic in rather than making a new mechanic fit with the established rules. I still wonder if the negative reception towards Link monsters factored into Vrains' shorter run. That might have been the case if the more recent cards haven't been selling as well as Konami would want them to. I'm not sure what kind of new mechanic they'll introduce for the next series, but hopefully it will be better than Link monsters and they can alter the rules to fix what Link monsters damaged.
