Well, the Zone = Yusei theory has been extremely popular since the duel with Bruno and we all thought that Zone was a future Yusei from last episode. Everyone’s pretty much thinking that Zone is Yusei (aside from the few who know YGO well enough to see that this is way too obvious to be the truth), be we got trolled hard by the writers. Zone turns out to not be Yusei! No, he is a scientist from the future who performed plastic surgery on himself (with automatically moving drills to boot) to look like Yusei aside from a scrap of metal on one side of his face. In the future, the Machine Emperor mechas started firing their lazers and destroying the world, and ZONE is one of the scientists researching a way to save the world. He found out that the Momentum will cause the destruction, but he cannot change the minds of the citizens. He decided to modify himself to look like te legendary Fudo Yusei so that he can have the power to influence people. His automatic plastic surgery basically made the whole building explode lol. Under Yusei’s name, ZONE convinces people that the world is ending because of the Momentum going out of control, and gets them to follow him by showing how he can stop the mechas from shooting with his Shooting Star Dragon card (I totally didn’t understand why he had SSD, or whether it was the real card or not). So the people following him are moving out of the city, the Machine Emperors standing still. However, people’s hearts cannot be changed and explosions start happening, the Momentum starts spinning in the opposite direction and the Machine Emperors self destruct. The land starts to split and everyone but ZONE fall in. Zone survives without saving anyone, and comes to the conclusion that the only way to save the world is to destroy Neo Domino City.
Now, the duel. Zone’s Turn. Jikaishin Razion returns to the deck during standby phase. Then he sends the trap card Zero Machine Ein to the graveyard and activates the continuous trap Mugenkai Einsofu (Infinite Machine Ein Soph?), which lets him special summon level 10+ monsters from his hand with their ATK dropped to 0. He summons Jikaishin Zafion, which turns battle damage to 0 when destroyed. Notice how I mentioned “monsters” when I described Infinite Machine Ein Soph’s effect? Ein Soph negates the Jikaishins’ effects that do not allow any other monsters to be summoned when a Jikaishin is on that side of the field. In other words, he can summon as many Jikaishin that are in his hand as he wants. Using Ein Soph, he summons Jikaishin Sadion and Jikaishin Kamion from his hand. ZONE now has 3 Jikaishin on his field. That’s 5/10 that we’ve seen. As usual, when they are destroyed, the user receives 0 damage. He uses Zafion to attack Black Feather Dragon, and its effect returns all spells and traps on the opponent’s field to return to the deck. Yusei doesn’t want to lose his Scrap-Iron Scarecrow, so he activates it and negates the attack. ZONE then attacks Black Rose Dragon with Sadion. When Sadion battles, it returns the user’s LP to 4000 if it is below 4000. FUUUUUUUUUUU–is what Yusei would be saying if he wasn’t in a kids’ show. Then Kamion attacks Red Demon’s Dragon. When Kamion attacks, the opponent’s monsters return to the deck and receives 500 damage for each monster returned. Yusei takes 1500 damage, dropping his LP to 1500.
ZONE starts explaining why he’s here, but Yusei refuses to let Neo Domino City get destroyed and decides to save both the present and the future. ZONE’s turn ends.
Yusei’s turn. He sets Gyakuten no Meisatsu (extremely literal translation, the Bright Note of Turnabout) face down and TURN END.
ZONE’s turn. Jikaishin Zafion, Sadion and Kamion return to his deck. He activates Zafion’s effect, which lets him draw until he has 5 cards in his hand (current hand has 1). ZONE draws 4 cards, but Yusei activates the trap card Gyakuten no Meisatsu he set earlier, which allows him to draw until his hand reaches the size of his opponent’s if the opponent draws sometime other than during draw phase. Yusei draws 5 cards since his current hand is 0, and sees the card that will let him perform a turnabout–Scouting Warrior. When this card goes from his deck to his hand as the result of an effect, it can be special summoned. Yusei summons Scouting Warrior in defense position, and special summons Steam Synchron (can be summoned when a monster is special summoned on his own field). Steam Synchron allows Synchro summoning during the opponent’s turn, so Yusei tunes it to Scouting Warrior to summon Ancient Fairy Dragon. ZONE activates trap card Joutei no Kanmuri (Empress’ Crown), which can be activated from the hand when the opponent Synchro summons. Jotei no Kanmuri allows ZONE to draw 2 cards for each Synchro monster on the opponent’s field. One of the cards he draws is Mugen Kou Ein Sofu Ouru (Infinite Light Ein Soph All? …fuck it, too long.), and the other one is Jikaishin Sandaion.
Using Infinite Machine Ein Soph’s effect, ZONE summons all level 10+ monsters in his hand. The lucky bastard drew FIVE FREAKING JIKAISHINS out of seven cards
and proceeds to SUMMON ALL THOSE MONSTERS IN ONE TURN.
That’s all 10 Jikaishin shown to us now. Metaion (from Metatron), Razion (Raziel), Zafion (Jophiel? Then in that case it’d be Jophion?), Sadion (Zadkiel? Sadkion?) and Kamion (Chamuel? Chamion?) from before, and now these five. From left to right on the bottom row: Rafion (Raphael, Raphion?), Michion (Michael), Haion (Haniel? Then maybe I heard it wrong and it’s Hanion?), Gabrion (Gabriel). The huge one on top is Sandaion (Sandalphon), and unlike his other Jikaishin with 0 ATK, Sandaion stands at level 10 with 4000 ATK. It seems like the Jikaishin are named after the 12 Archangels, but I’m going with what I hear here until YGO Wikia puts up the names. The episode ends here.
Well, this was more of a plot episode than duel episode. We can expect ZONE to use Mugen Kou Ein Sofu Ouru (this better get a simpler English name) later on, since it seems to be an upgraded version of Mugenkai Ein Soph (which in turn seems to be an upgrade of Zero Machine Ein/Kyomukai Ein). Everyone who believed that Zone = Yusei and that he will have to go through some intense mind screw pretty much got trolled and Yusei will probably do some asspull to win (or win by the power of the Crimson Dragon which gives him a shiny new card).
For those of you who listen to the ending, did you notice that it changed a bit? They made a TV length (1:30) version for 5D’s, but then the full version that came out on CD sounds different and kinda like a live recording. The TV version has always sounded a lot better than the full CD version, but this episode they shortened the CD version and used that. *crycrycry* First they don’t release a GOOD full version, and then they change the TV version to the bad version.
