So the episode starts off with some creep sending out a virus, causing the computer system in the city to go haywire. So the traffic lights become weird, the monorail stopped, cleanbots start picking up people, and vending machines start giving out free drinks. Yuuma’s class can’t continue because their electronic textbooks are showing the red screen of death, and his sister spazzes because she got bombarded by that screen in the middle of work and forgot to save or something.
Also, Yuuma finds Astral annoying, and becomes extremely happy that he went into some strange world inside Yuuma’s necklace. So since Yuuma has no class, he suggests that they duel instead. He goes up against the class president, but since Astral isn’t here and neither is his Kibouou Hope, he lost. Very badly. Class prez mocks him, saying that a retard who never studies will obviously suck at card games (erm…). Then their teacher steps in, saying that even if you suck now, you can continue to strive yada yada. The students all spend several lines saying that he is a kind and wonderful teacher complete with heartwarming music, which is basically telling us that he is the criminal behind the virus.
Yuuma’s sister finds out that the virus is being sent from his school’s library, so he and Kotori go stand there like creepers until they see the criminal. After everyone else has left, the class president shows up and types away on his computer, leading Yuuma to believe that he is the criminal. However, in reality, the class prez is tracking the guilty party, who is revealed to be operating at the base of a tower. The three run into the tower to find the door closing behind them, and who stands there but our “kind and wonderful” teacher? Also, they’re on a timer counting down from 30. In 30 minutes, the virus will activate for real or something and screw over banks and hospitals and other things more important than vending machines.
Astral is floating around in his magical world, finding some sort of puzzle. Then a red light shines, signaling that Yuuma is near a Numbers, so he pop out of the necklace and tells Yuuma to duel the teacher. DUEL!
Teacher takes the first turn. He places a monster in face down defense position (I’ve never actually seen anyone do this in 5D’s, but it happens pretty damn often in Tag Force 5). TURN END.
Yuuma’s turn. He summons Gagaga Magician. He says, “screw thinking” and attacks the face down monster. The face down monster turns out to be Bugman X with a defense stat of 2000. Yuuma takes 500 damage instead, dropping his LP to 3500. For some reason, the writers decided that they needed to explain what happens when you attack a defense position monster with DEF higher than your ATK in the middle of the duel. Why? I started watching 5D’s without even understanding the concept of a graveyard and had monster effects making my head spin. I had literally no idea how the card game even worked lol. TURN END.
Teacher’s turn. He summons Bugman Y, and activates the spell card Bug Load (/Road? damn L’s and R’s) which lets him choose one level 4 or lower monster on the field, and make both players summon a monster of that level from their hand. The teacher summons Bugman Z, while Yuuma decides to summon Gogogo Golem. Astral reminds him to summon it in defense position since it can negate destruction, but Yuuma’s like “fuck you, no” and summons it in attack position. The teacher overlays Bugman X, Y, and Z to Exceed summon Number 34 Densan Kijuu Terabyte (Electronic Computer-Beast Terabyte, according to YGO wikia). TROLOLOL NUMBER 34 (I don’t want to see Rule 34 of this thing). Yuuma digs his pocket to find his two Numbers, No. 17 Revise Dragon and No. 39 Kibouou Hope. It seems like the Numbers only appear if Astral is with him.
The teacher activates Terabyte’s effect, removing one Overlay Unit to gain control of an opponent’s monster whose level is level 4 or lower once a turn. He takes control of Yuuma’s Gogogo Golem, and uses it to attack Gagaga Magician, dropping Yuuma’s LP to 3200. Now Yuuma’s field is empty and Teacher still has Terabyte with 2900 DEF.
Back at home, Yuuma’s sister got into the virus program, and is trying to find the switch. She tracks it down, but it leads her to a screen that looks like a dungeon for a first-person RPG. So I guess she has to play Etrian Odyssey to find the switch. Meanwhile the counter is slowly counting down.
Damn, I’m liking Yuuma’s sister. She’s hotter than the main females of previous Yu-Gi-Oh! series. Also, she’s computer savvy, which wins extra points. Now I’m having a hard time deciding between Onee-chan and the season 1 Aki who liked to use Rose Tentacles. That red hair is…*w*
The screenshots for this episode have Youtube in the corner because I watched this upload of episode 3. I guess they have to do this to prevent being taken off Youtube.
