Just watched episode 16, and it was pretty good.
Loved the inside joke with Areas A and B.
It's a bit creepy that Aoi is basically being held captive by Zaizen.
I get he's just being overprotective, but still.
He doesn't understand her love language at all.

But I'm glad Aoi's Back in action.

It makes me wonder, though.
Is the next episode going to be 2 individual duels, with Blue Angel vs B and Playmakers vs. A,
or are they going to do some sort of modified tag duel?
I don't think Playmaker would accept a tag duel, but I'm not sure the situation would allow him to play alone.

This will be a good duel, though.
It will give Yusaku a reason to finally make friends/allies outside of Kusanagi.

Well, just watched ep 17 and it was... okay.
Playmaker's duel was basically nonexistent.
It was almost all Blue Angel vs. AI number 2.
Hope you like effect damage chains, because it was 90% effect damage chains.
Overall it wasn't as exciting as I had hoped.

Next episode will be more interesting I think.
Zaizen himself is actually going to duel, and it's actually not a Speed Duel.
I don't think he will be any good, he isn't a duelist as far as we know,
but the episode should fill in more plot I think.
Maybe we'll finally get to know what that "incident that happened 10 years ago" actually is.

if they do then they're moving through the plot pretty fast.

that duel with Blue angel was pretty back and forth constant chaining. even I got kind of annoyed.

Yeah, the solid burn effects got old fast.

What's really weird is that the AIs seemed to need to be told what to do.
Weren't they training the AIs at the start of the previous episode to learn to duel by themselves?
lol, How many SOL Technology Security Officials does it take to screw in a lightbulb? :D

I can't wait to see what happened 10 years ago and if Yusaku gets found out that he's Playmaker

I don't think people will find out his identity just yet, but Ghost Girl did steal something when Zaizen wasn't looking.
Maybe that was the information from 10 years ago, though.
She didn't expect him to want to duel Playmaker.

Well, watched episode 18 and it was okay.
Not as interesting as I had hoped, as the stuff I wanted to know was being blocked by Zaizen.
It was a bit interesting seeing his and Aoi's past a little.

Nice of them to bring in a new Flip archetype.
When was the last time we saw those?
While we are so far lacking non-Link Extra Deck mechanics, they are making up for it with forgotten Main Deck features.
When are they going to bust out new Gemini monsters? :D

I'll do a back flip if they do that, :lol:

speaking of that archtype. despite it's kinda gruesome appearance I LIKED it's design.

but what's up with that name? "Tindangle"? what is that a portmanteau of?

Yeah, I agree on that.
Cool design (I believe they are Fiends, although the Wikia only had a Type listed for Hound), but terrible name.
I'm guessing Tindangle is a portmanteau of some kind like a lot of archetype names are, but for the life of me I can't
figure out what words they combined to get it.

Tin + dangle?
Tinder + mangle?
Actually, as gruesome as they looked, I wouldn't be surprised if it's mangle, lol.

Name aside, I like them.

What's coming up that I should check out?
I looked over the known card lists for the next two boosters and didn't see anything that stands out to me.

But... how can they introduce new cards without magic?!
They have to be special.
It's not like he might actually have these cards in his deck.

Actually, now tat I mention it, where did Yusaku get his cards?
According to the series, Cyberse Monsters were all but wiped out, to the point nobody but Yusaku and Revolver knew they existed or had any.
Yet he has a deck of them, and actual physical versions, not just a digital deck inside VRAINS.
I suppose that'll be explained along with Yusaku's past and this mysterious event from 10 years ago, but he's walking around
with almost all of them in existance.

I thought that when Ignis showed up he gave Yusaku Cyberse cards but I may be wrong
