Well, we’d obviously have to go beyond Delta Accel Synchro, right? Introducing Shooting Quasar Dragon, the product of Limit Over Accel Synchro using Life Stream Dragon (tuner), Black Rose Dragon, Black Feather Dragon, Ancient Fairy Dragon, and Red Demon’s Dragon. Stardust is forever alone D= He keeps getting replaced by better, SHINIER dragons, and isn’t even used as Synchro material for our final magical card that appears to save Yusei’s ass when he is losing. LOAS is Over Top Clear Mind, and the summoning animation is certainly over the top.
Ok, duel summary time! Last episode we’re left off with ZONE summoning his 5 Jikaishins, with Sandaion at 4000 ATK. However, due to Infinite Machine Ein Soph, its ATK goes down to 0. As usual, these damn Jikaishin can’t be destroyed and reduce battle damage to 0. ZONE attacks Ancient Fairy Dragon with Michion. Yusei doesn’t activate his Scrap-Iron Scarecrow, and his LP gets halved to 750. ZONE then attacks with Hanion, but Yusei activates Scrap-Iron Scarecrow to negate it. Hanion’s effect inflicts damage to the opponent based on the difference between the user’s and the opponent’s LP, but the attack is negated this turn so Yusei is still alive. Next, ZONE attacks Ancient Fairy Dragon with Raphion, but Yusei activates Synchro Believer’s effect from his hand. Synchro Believer can negate the attack when a Synchro monster is on the receiving side and it can be special summoned. Raphion’s effect is that when it battles a monster, it will return it to the deck and deal damage equal to the returned monster’s ATK points. Since Yusei negated it with Synchro Believer, he is still alive with 750 LP.
Unfortunately, ZONE still got 2 more Jikaishin. He attacks AFD with Gabrion, and it goes through this time. Its effect returns all cards on the opponent’s field back to his deck. Now Yusei’s field is empty and ZONE attacks with Sandaion directly. When Sandaion battles, it deals 4000 damage to the opponent. The attack results in something like a massive explosion. ZONE says “As I thought, you couldn’t save the world,” but Yusei manages to stay in the game by summoning Power Tool Dragon. When Sandaion’s effect was activated, Yusei used Synchro Keeper’s effect to negate effect damage and by removing from play a Tuner monster and Synchron Keeper, he can special summon a Synchro monster from the extra deck with level equal to the removed monsters. By now, the Arc Cradle is really close to Neo Domino City and a building has already fallen off and crashed. ZONE sets 1 card face dow and TURN END.
Yusei’s turn. He will be able to turn the battle around this turn since all the Jikaishin will return to the deck during the user’s next standby phase, right? Well, ZONE likes trolling so he sends Infinite Machine Ein Soph to the graveyard and activates trap card Infinite Light Ein Soph Aur (Mugen Kou Ein Sofu Ouru). What does this do? Negate the effect of Jikaishin that makes them return during the next standby phase. At this point, I can only laugh because I could totally see it coming even during last episode. Also, since Ein Soph got sent to the graveyard, Sandaion’s attack returns to 4000. FUUUUUUUUUUUU-
Arc Cradle starts crashing into the highest point of NDC, and Yusei drops his card out of shock! Whoa, physics actually got applied! When he goes chasing after his card, a rock falls on him and knocks him off his flying D-Wheel. But of course, Yusei falls slowly and doesn’t hit the ground just yet–a strange light hits him and he gets sent to some glowing space with a hologram of his father.
Yusei angsts to his father about not being able to win this card game. His dad’s respone? BITCH SLAP TIME! He then gives a speech about how he has to guide the hearts of people, and Yusei comments on how strict he is lol. Yusei returns to the real world after his dad’s hologram disappears, and he is caught in midair by his FLYING D-WHEEL. Yusei summons Turbo Synchron and tunes it to Power Tool Dragon to Synchro summon Life Stream Dragon. Frankly, I like PTD’s design much, much better. When LSD is summoned successfully, players with their LP below 2000 will have it raised to 2000. Yusei says that humanity will keep evolving even if the Momentum is destroyed, and that those who cannot save the present can’t save the future either. Everyone is screaming his name and he flies up through the clouds to see some nice epic scenery that we can probably onlysee through photos IRL.
…Wait, if he can see that, then it means he’s in space, right? Holy shit how does he breathe!?
Yusei activates Speed World 2 spell Synchro Panic from his hand. When he has 7 or more speed counters, he can summon Synchro monsters used in this duel from the extra deck with their effects negated and ATK dropped to 0. He summons Ancient Fairy Dragon, Black Rose Dragon, Black Feather Dragon and Red Demon’s Dragon. Appaently the card lets you summonc as many as possible, but I’m not sure. Then Yusei activates Life Stream Dragon’s effect, which drops all Synchro monsters’ other than LSD’s level to 1. Then he tunes them all to perform Over Top Clear Mind and Limit Over Accel Synchro summon (oh god this is becoming a mouthful) Shooting Quasar Dragon with 4000 ATK. The episode ends here.
I took some more screenshots of Shooting Quasar Dragon:
I’m not too fond of SQD’s design. It looks more like a mecha than a dragon, its head scares me, and Shooting Star Dragon win in terms of sparkling prettiness. Another problem I have is with its name. Quasars are the “most luminous, powerful, and energetic objects known in the universe” according to Wikipedia so the symbolism fits to a T, but there is definitely no such thing as a shooting quasar. What the hell is a shooting quasar?
