    Well you're right, you made a fantastic call with that decision there.
    Welp, a new Yu-Gi-Oh! anime series has just started production and will be premiering sometime next year.

    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

    Wow. I'm actually surprised that they already announced a new Yu-Gi-Oh! series. I figured that we wouldn't get an announcement until December like we normally do. This might be one reason why we didn't get a Vrains manga if it was possibly ending sooner than the other series. I might have read a Vrains manga if it was written by someone else, but even that would have been a maybe at best. I guess Vrains is closer to ending than I expected, which I'm beyond thrilled with.

    You made an excellent choice in jumping ship after the first arc ended. Season two was arguably even worse in a lot of ways and the current arc is pretty awful too. At this point, I'm just hate watching it, although I also frequently forget that this series even exists despite hating it. As much as I dislike Zexal, I could at least kind of understand why people could like it more. I have no idea how people could like Vrains. It is just so unbelievably awful and I'd even say it's one of the worst things to come out of this franchise. That might be a bit harsh, but Vrains is just full of everything I dislike about the franchise and cracks it up to ten. I definitely hope that the next series will be better. I really hope that they'll have a different head writer this time. Keeping the same writer from Zexal and the Arc V Manga was a terrible mistake and having someone else in charge would at least make the series feel different instead of going through the same story beats over and over again.

    That was a pretty cool trailer. It's nice to see them incorporate other Disney characters like Goofy and Daisy. I was wondering if at least Daisy would show up. DuckTales is a pretty good fun show. Delia's return was fantastic too, so hopefully the rest of season two and season three will be fun to watch as well.

    Yeah, I imagine that can make some of the decks that rely heavily on the Extra Deck summoning hard to pull off. I'm still pretty excited about playing as Zarc though. I love your Yuya avatar by the way.
    Reactions: Ebail
    So I've finally started the Arc-V story and they just didn't even try with some of these decks. It's like for the story based deck Yuya pre Junior League Championship his deck has at least 2 copies of Graceful Charity which he never once used, especially since its been banned since GX days.

    Not to mention they didn't bother updating DM character decks. Their all still the same original Legacy of the Duelist decks despite cards coming out after that game was made that characters used. Like Dark Sanctuary could have been added to Yami Bakura's Battle City deck.

    I mean even if they aren't popular I know people will welcome them for the gems alone, and maybe their skills too. I mean on their own how many of these DM characters are super popular or relevant? Yeah his wall of defense was very annoying, that's why I ran with the Blackwings and threw in Synchro Blast Wave to help. Using him is frustrating indeed. I tried making an Infernity deck but it just doesn't work well with what we have. Instead I just use an Archfiend deck with him, which I'm upset he doesn't have speaking lines for those cards. If I remember right when you used the past/team Satisfaction version of him in the Tag Force games he had lines for them as they were considered his signature cards.

    Yeah I don't really get anything from eggs anymore either, just still trying for a Riolu now and figure I may as well hatch the eggs anyway. I don't do well with any of the events. I would like a shiny Mareep myself too. Sad I didn't catch one or Buneary during the Easter event.

    Yeah he's not bad. I guess I'd probably put him in the realm of Jou. A capable duelist in his own right who can beat tough foes but can still be a throw away duelist too at times. It's like his duel with Bohman was so unnecessary. If anything they could have had him and Yusaku vs Bohman 2 on 1 and had him lose during that duel instead of just making him more of a throwaway there to just motivate Yusaku more before the duel. Yeah I mean like it's not like I'm angry about it or something because Specter is a whatever character to me. He's there and that's all. I get he was suppose to be maybe a bit redeemed or something, at least in their eyes, with the whole shedding a tear when Earth was dismantled but ehh. It mostly just didn't make sense to make him seem credible and then just drop him off instantly. Just a continued issue with Vrains.

    Yeah if they really wanted him to be connected more with wrestling outside of just his cards theme they really dropped the ball there. He could have had his own aspect of Entertainment Dueling that was different than Yuya's using the theme but they just seemed like they stopped caring and just wanted to make him focused on beating Yusaku. Yeah I'm in that group that don't care for him.

    The series discussion is bad but geez the way some people defend their favorite characters. For example, Yami Bakura. Way back I remember a post where people went nuts about a game cover because it took a manga chapter cover and replaced Yami Bakura with Seto Kaiba. People flipped about it without even taking a moment to realize the game theme/in the game it was post Death-T Kaiba and his body was possessed by Yami Bakura so he could get rid of everyone in one shot without his regular self interfering. People do get way too defensive with this franchise as a whole. I made my thoughts known in a post on Facebook. I'm on the fence because I can see both sides of the argument but ultimately nothing I can do about it and need to accept this is the way things are even if I didn't like it.

    Yeah I'm more inclined to believe that these worlds are special events like the D.D. Towers and that's why they're considered different worlds here. Maybe for the sake of said event characters would appear with the looks they had in the movie which would make it like a different world. I can't really see us being given another DM world like you said. Yeah we can still get so many more GX characters given to us. I just feel like they really don't care about the GX world personally.

    You're welcome. That's good to know that you aren't close to the area. I never paid much attention to the specific area you sent me any gifts from in GO, just always noticed the California stamped on there which is how I knew that much. Regardless I'm just glad to know you aren't around where the issues have been lately and hopefully it won't come your way at all.

    Sorry for taking so long to reply back. I didn't realize how long it had been since the previous message. They seem much more focus on capitalizing on DM nostalgia with all of these random one-shot characters being playable than any of the other series. I'm not too surprised that Kiryu doesn't have lines for Archfiend cards. He is more associated with Inferity cards. Hopefully they'll include some more Inferity cards in another booster pack.

    At least with the newest update, I can check to see how strong my Pokemon's IVs are. I was never able to do that before. Knowing my luck, I probably had more perfect IV Pokemon before and just transferred them over to make room. At least I found a few while searching through my collection.

    I can see why they didn't have Bohman vs. Yusaku and Takeru since they wanted Bohman to have the other Ignis before facing Yusaku again. Although, they really should have handled Bohman so much better. The Onizuka subplot was virtually pointless. Bohman could have been the one to defeat Earth instead. Even the idea of Spectre being redeemed because he suddenly cared about the Earth Ignis felt pretty forced to me. The Ignis were created from months of torture and trauma, but they're also suddenly bonded with their human origins in spite of that? I'm not even sure if it was necessary to make him a Lost Incident victim aside from the writers not having to make a new character. It is still a strange decision to hype him up during the first season only to have him lose off-screen, but this is Vrains. No one aside from Yusaku actually matters for the writers.

    I'm actually kind of glad that they did drop Onizuka's Entertainment Dueling style. I couldn't really believe him as such a great entertainer coming right after characters like Yuya. Plus, I didn't want to risk fans talking about how Vrains did such a better job with Entertainment Dueling than Arc V or some other nonsense like that. Anyone who really thinks that must have wanted Entertainment Dueling to be a passing thought instead of a central aspect of Arc V.

    I never quite understood the immense popularity Bakura or Yami Bakura have. Bakura has more presence in the manga compared to the anime and he is likable, but I was never a huge fan. Yami Bakura is especially strange considering he isn't really an effective villain. He looks and sounds intimidating, but he doesn't really do much up until the Memory World arc. I can understand being on the fence about the Pokedex issue. There are some valid points brought up on both sides, but I've just seen too much negative behavior to really get upset about the decision itself at this point.

    A D.D. Tower kind of situation would make much more sense. If the movie had introduced a bunch of new characters, then maybe they could have pulled off a new DM world, even though I would have hated that decision, but aside from Diva, I'm pretty sure that there aren't any other really popular/recognizable new characters from the movie. I don't think that they don't care about the GX World. They have been making new events lately. Like I mentioned before, they're just far too focused on getting more DM characters to capitalize on the nostalgia for that series than they are on the nostalgia for other series. I definitely think we should have gotten at least Kenzan much earlier than we actually did.

    I really appreciate your concern. Earthquakes are pretty nerve racking to say the least, but hopefully I won't have to deal with a huge one anytime soon.

    Don't worry about, I figure between life and being an admin on here, as well as posting around yourself you can be pretty busy and preoccupied sometimes so it's all good. It only surprised me a little with Kiryu since they could have just transferred over his Tag Force lines for those cards. Either way I still prefer to stick with them since we don't have enough Infernity cards for a useable deck yet.

    I probably did the same myself. When looking through my list of my own Pokemon I noticed while I had some with good stats I had no perfect IVs. Unfortunately I might need to give up on GO, as well as possibly Duel Links to. I'd just had to go get a new phone last night and I'm not sure I want heavy battery drainers on it right now and since both (but especially GO) can really eat battery I might need to call it quits or at least a hiatus. Edit: well you can disregard that bit now haha. It's a week later and so I've decided to go back into playing a bit now despite it going to eat up my battery.

    Yeah I hear you there. While the series does have it flaws it just feels like during Season 2 they stopped caring and were just like "whatever works" it's kind of like how they just killed off Windy's partner without us ever actually seeing him in the series besides the brief 10 second glimpse. I guess it was again to save the trouble of a new character needing to be included. It just all felt so mismatched last season all over the place.

    Yeah, which wouldn't work anyway. The whole point of Entertainment Dueling from Arc-V was meant to show all the other duelist that things can change without conflict and everyone can laugh. That was never going to work in Vrains with a secondary character, who could never beat the main character, doing it. They were better off giving Onizuka his own kind of gimmick.

    Yeah I never got it either besides of people always saying he was cute and whatnot. I dunno, he was always okay to me but I was always a much bigger Kaiba fan. To each their own I suppose. I can respect your decision there. While it might irk me a little it's not like I'm going to outright not buy the games because of this. I still plan to enjoy them and have a good time regardless, I just hope a few of my most important favorites make the cut.

    I'm still not sure what the future holds right now. Generally a new world comes in September but I hear via datamining nothing is showing anything right now of a Zexal world or Xyz cards. I see we're slated to get Carly at the end of this month at least for 5Ds. I guess all we can do is wait until later this month to see them post updates for the month of September.

    That's good, I hope you won't need to either.

    King Edmund and Eugene's interactions were pretty funny. I remember thinking that Cassandra was going to be a red herring at the end of the previous episode, but it turned out that both she and Eugene betrayed Rapunzel for different reasons. Getting another forty-five episode season premiere would be great and definitely warranted with a cliffhanger ending like this one. They'd need to explain why Cassandra absorbed the Moon Stone and what the goal is for the new season. More songs would also be great. I want them to air season three as soon as possible, but I'm also going to miss this show when it wraps up. Hopefully season three will still be a solid end to the series.
    Galar Adventurer
    Galar Adventurer
    Yeah. Chris Sonnenburg (the executive producer) has confirmed on social media that Cassandra's motive for betraying Rapunzel will be revealed in season 3.
    As for its premise, most fans have begun theorizing that Zhan Tiri will be released and will be the season's final main antagonist, while a reformed or mostly reformed Varian and Rapunzel whether they like like it or not, will have to join forces with the combined powers of magic and alchemy to stop him as it took both science and magic with Demanitus' machine to stop Zhan Tiri's blizzard in Queen for a Day.
    Hidden Mew
    Hidden Mew
    That's pretty cool. I figured that they would have to explore Cassandra's motivation in the next season after that cliffhanger ending, but confirmation is always good. That is a pretty interesting theory too. They have been building up Zhan Tiri a lot more than I thought they would. I thought it was just a one time villain, but it has been used a lot more frequently with this season. That would make sense as a reason to bring Varian back, but a part of me thinks that they would have hinted at him more during this season if he was going to play a big role in the third one. Granted, they couldn't just meet him on the road or have him be on the same boat with the other prisoners from Corona, but I kept expecting him to show up at some point during this season too. I wouldn't be against that theory since it sounds pretty neat though.
    So now I'm thinking I was wrong before and the field is fully updated. Originally I didn't notice an Extra Monster Zone because the field spell on display in screenshots didn't make it look like there was one. Now after looking at new screens I'm seeing that the pendulum zones are with the spell and trap zones which does mean its updated. I suppose we can only hope that for the story mode it's not mandatory.

    Well haven't started yet as I need to go do a few things first but what made me opt to buy it is seeing that despite this being from the Japanese eshop the game is fully playable in English meaning that (at least to me) this is the Western version we'll get too if it's fully in English, including all the cards. Makes me wonder why our official release is pushed back then.
    Hidden Mew
    Hidden Mew
    That sounds pretty cool. It's possible that they needed more time to record English dialogue, alter the dialogue to fit with the dub versions and/or edit any of the cards. They could possibly use the dialogue recorded for Duel Links for the first three series worth of characters, but they would need to record more dialogue for at least the Arc V, Zexal and Vrains characters available in the games.
    Indeed. Can't believe Season 2's coming to a close already. I won't link the source because one song its tracklist contains a spoiler, but I can confirm that a season 2 soundtrack for Tangled is getting ready to drop soon. :)
    As for Milo Murphy's Law, it's had a few duds here and there, but I've actually enjoyed its season 2 for the most part.

    And on that note, another film, The Phineas and Ferb Movie has been announced for Disney+.


    In this all-new animated feature length adventure, Phineas and Ferb travel across the galaxy to rescue Candace
    who has been abducted by aliens and taken to a utopia in far away planet free of pesky little brothers.

    Ferb's new actor from The Phineas and Ferb Effect, David Errigo Jr, will continue to voice him.





    Disney+ launches November 12, 2019 with a monthly fee of $7.00 bucks or an annual fee of $70.00 bucks.

    Same here. Not gonna lie, while it had some of its moments, I thought that island filler arc was kind of meh, tbh.
    Yeah, I enjoy Doofenshmirtz as much as the next person but I kinda wish they would show some of the other cast as well.
    Heck, Phineas and Ferb took Milo's offer to come visit his side of Danville every now and then, but that's never even happened yet. But oh well.
    While I'm not much of a shipper, I do like that Amanda/Milo finally seems to be becoming a thing though and that she's grown to tolerate Murphy's Law.

    Indeed. I was iffy on Disney+ in the beginning, but it sounds great. I'm surprised that it's actually affordable, too. $7.00 per month isn't bad at all. :LOL:
    Hidden Mew
    Hidden Mew
    Yeah, for a season that was all about traveling outside of Corona, I think that they had the cast spend a bit too much time in certain locations for awhile. The island is a prime example of that and probably factors into the pacing issues the season has. They probably wanted to save a bit on backgrounds, which does make sense, but added a few bumps on the journey at the same time. It might flow better upon rewatching it though and it still a pretty great season as a whole.

    There have been a few episodes where I think that the creative team just misses writing Doofenshmirtz and Perry episodes. They might be saving featuring more Phineas and Ferb characters for near the end of the season. Milo and Amanda seemingly becoming a couple is rather cute and it feels like a gradual buildup from Amanda's appearances throughout the series. For all the content Disney+ is going to have, seven dollars a month is certainly a good price. They probably wouldn't want to have the price too high when there are so many other streaming services to compete with nowadays.

    Heya, Mew. I was just wondering if you'd heard about Yu-Gi-Oh! Legacy of the Duelist Link Evolution and/or if you were going to consider getting it?
    Reactions: Hidden Mew
    Hidden Mew
    Hidden Mew
    Yeah, it would be kind of weird to get that late into Arc V's storyline without Zarc. I just hope that we can get good artwork of all the characters and it won't just be reused when we get an Arc V world in Duel Links. I'd still be happy with an Arc V Duel Links update even if they do use the same artwork from this game, but I would hope for more new artwork and voice recordings would come with it. Some of the DM video games were also pretty weird. Some of them didn't even bother following the rules of the games and emphasizes the attribute of the cards, like how water cards could instantly destroy fire cards. It was confusing. I'm not surprised that the Tag Force Special had so little of Arc V. It was announced relatively early into Arc V's run, so they would have limited options available for the characters and their decks.

    I remember just how badly Zexal Duel Carnival was butchered in the U.S. version. On one hand, I kind of don't blame them for cutting out some of the characters. They included a lot of the one shot characters from Zexal and I don't know how many people would be interested in playing as the girl who could talk to dogs or the random soccer player kid, especially when Zexal was never that popular in the west at least to begin with. But on the other hand, they really should have included at least all of the main and prominent supporting characters. It was strange that they didn't include all of Tron's family and especially the Barians. That basically doomed the video game to poor sales, which was a shame since I liked playing through some of the different characters' storylines. I just hope that being on the Switch will lead to pretty good graphics. I never thought we'd get a Yu-Gi-Oh! video game on a Nintendo system again, so I'm hoping that it will look good and especially that it will be fun to play through.

    So I see they announced today that it's set for Western release sometime this summer. Still kind of a vague release time but it does at least confirm its coming at some point in the next few months.

    I mean I wouldn't be surprised to see it reused in Duel Links since all character models of series there now seem like they were the standard models used in the previous games. Even still come Duel Links for Arc V they're bound to have a lot of lines. To me it seems that with each new series added characters have a lot of card lines. I mean Jack and Yusei seem to have 3 times as many lines as Yugi or Kaiba. Yeah those original games were odd. It was a nice way to be able to beat some harder characters but at the same time I dont want my Blue-Eyes that I just summoned destroyed so easily by a 500 attack point Shadow type. Definitely it's just a shame. If they would have held off Tag Force Special another few months it could have had more in depth for early Arc V at least.

    Duel Carnival was just over killed with the US release. I'd had the Japanese version because I had a Japanese 3DS for some Dragon Ball games that never got released outside of there so I'd gotten this game too and while it did seem a bit lazy the Japanese version wasn't that bad. Hearing about the English version though geez. I dont blame them for cutting out some characters but to cut 2/3rd of them is a bit extreme. I had my hopes we would get a game on the Switch eventually but I do have to say those hopes were slim given the success of Duel Links and them more focused with making money with that.

    That's awesome news. I was worried we wouldn't hear about a western release for months. I'm not too surprised by a vague release date. They might be still figuring out when to release it, but summer sounds good. Hopefully it will be around June instead of August, but I'm still thrilled that they didn't take long to announce a western release at all. It's going to be pretty hilarious to me if this game comes out before the Vrains dub gets a U.S. premiere. I think Canada has already aired all of season one, but there hasn't been any official announcement for a U.S. premiere and even the premiere in Canada had absolutely no attention. That hopefully shouldn't affect the video game's release date since the dub has aired and the subbed version is legally available too, but it's just going to be funny to me if we get a video game featuring Vrains before an English dub even airs.

    I've also seen the cover for the game. It looks pretty cool. I wish that all of the protagonists were standing together, if only so that there was a better picture of Yuya, but that would be a lot of characters to put in the center and of course they'd want Yami Yugi and Yusaku standing together. It is still a pretty awesome cover though.

    I wouldn't be surprised if that happens either with a eventual Arc V Duel Links world, but I'd just like to see some more new artwork too. At least recording some more lines would be nice and I still hope that they'll include the Japanese audio for this game. Just seeing and hearing the characters in new content would make me really happy in both games. I remember playing Reshef of Destruction and that type strength/weakness idea definitely made duels more difficult than they needed to be.

    I don't remember hearing much about the Japanese version of Duel Carnival. I think fans liked the idea of playing through so many characters. Even if I liked Zexal more than I do, I don't know if I'd want to play as nearly every character in the series. Playing as one shot characters sounded boring. While the game was enjoyable, it was pretty repetitive to do the same thing with each character. They all had different stories and events played out differently, but since it was all about getting to the Duel Carnival tournament, it still felt a bit repetitive and dull after awhile. That might have been one other reason they cut out so many characters, but they really should have kept at least the more recognizable character. No one cared about playing as the one shot filler characters. After how poorly the Duel Carnival went, I didn't have much hope for a proper Yu-Gi-Oh! video game again. The focus on Duel Links didn't make it too likely either. The mobile game has been quite successful, so I wouldn't have blamed them for sticking with what works. But I'm glad that they're able to get a video game for the Switch. I playing through the storylines from various series sounds great and I want to play the Arc V story mode so badly. That is the biggest selling point for the game as far as I'm concerned. This is the closest I'll get to a proper Arc V video game and I'm going to take it.
