The last episode left off in the middle of Yuuma’s duel with his teacher, where the teacher just summoned Number 34 Electronic Computer-Beast Terabyte, and also took control of Yuuma’s Gogogo Golem to destroy his Gagaga Magician. The teacher places one card face down and TURN END. Gogogo Golem returns to Yuuma’s field.
Yuuma’s turn. Astral tells Yuuma to summon Ganbara Knight, but Yuuma’s liek “wtf why do I have to listen to you?” If they lose and the teacher takes their Numbers, Astral will disappear. Also, Astral finally decides to drill it into Yuuma’s head that the kid sucks at dueling and wouldn’t be able to win, so he should listen to him. Yuuma’s head is protected by those spiky things known as his hair, so nothing reaches it other than KATTOBING. He also gets pissed and decides to never listen to Astral, and flat-out states that he will go left if Astral tells him to go right. U MAD? Since Astral told him to summon Ganbara Knight, Yuuma summons Achacha Archer (lvl 3) instead (facepalming at the names…). When Achacha Archer is successfully summoned, it deals 500 points of damage to the opponent. The teacher is now left with 3500 LP.
Astral tells Yuuma that if he summoned the lvl 4 Ganbara Knight, he could overlay it with Gogogo Golem to Exceed Summon Kibouou Hope. The teacher activates the trap card, Damage Vaccine Omega Max, which recovers LP equal to the damage he just received. The teacher is back at full LP. TURN END.
Teacher’s turn. He activates Terabyte’s effect to take control of Yuuma’s Gogogo Golem again. Astral tells Yuuma that if he summoned Kibouou Hope instead, Terabyte wouldn’t be able to use its effect against it because Exceed monsters use Ranks, and their levels are non-existant. Since Terabyte can only control a monster of level 4 or under, it wouldn’t be able to control Hope because it is RANK 4. The teacher uses the continuous spell cards, Virus Nail and Cracking. Virus Nail allows a level 4 or lower monster to direct attack once per turn, and then destroy that monster. He uses Gogogo Golem to directly attack Yuuma, dropping his LP to 1400. Then Gogogo Golem is destroyed, and he activates the effect of Cracking, which deals 800 points of damage to the owner of the monster that is destroyed and sent to the graveyard. Yuuma’s LP is reduced to 600. The timer is counting down, and Astral is flashing because Yuuma’s LP is low and he is about to disappear.
Yuuma is depressed, but then the class president cheers him up by praising him. Since he used it on Yuuma, it works. Astral picks up on this, thinking that humans will do better when praised. He tries to do it…by mocking Yuuma of his previous stupid failures like sucking at jumping vaults and trying to swim a lap without breathing. Lol. Also, the whole place they’re dueling in is actually an elevator, and it begins to go up.
Meanwhile, back at home, onee-chan is close to cracking the virus…when a BOSS FIGHT pops up in that first-person RPG dungeon. The battle system doesn’t seem to be first person though, as the player character’s sprite shows up on screen. Is this how you’re supposed to crack a virus? Aren’t you supposed to be facing a hugeass screen of code? I guess this is where Hollywood Hacking comes to play.
Back at the duel, the elevator arrived at the roof of the tower. Astral remembers that Yuuma said he refuses to listen to him and will do the opposite of what he tells him to, so he gets an idea…Yuuma’s turn. He summons Goblindberg (lvl 4), which allows him to special summon a level 4 or lower monster from his hand. Astral tells Yuuma to summon Zubaba Knight, so Yuuma refuses to listen and summons Ganbara Knight instead. They’re both level 4, so Yuuma Exceed summons No. 39 Kibouou Hope. Astral tells Yuuma to use a trap card, but Yuuma refuses to listen so he places one card face down and TURN END. 3 guesses as to what Astral is trying to do.
Back at home, onee-chan is engaged in her boss fight. When it seems like she has won, the boss stands back up and…it cuts back to the duel.
Teacher’s turn. He uses Terabyte’s effect once again to take control of Achacha Archer (lol I almost forgot that thing was on the field). Then he uses Virus Nail’s effect to directly attack Yuuma. However, Astral reminds Yuuma that he can use Hope’s effect to negate the attack. Yuuma…actually does it. Since the attack is negated, Achacha Archer isn’t destroyed, and thus Cracking’s effect won’t take place. Now that the teacher has used Terabyte’s effect thrice, he has no Overlay Units left and can’t abuse its effect anymore. Of course, sensei still has more up his sleeve. He activates the trap card Bug Switch. When Bugman X, Y and Z are in his graveyard, his defense position monsters get switched to attack position and he can special summon Super Bugman in defense position. Terabyte has 0 ATK, btw. Super Bugman looks like a mini Earthboud God and has 3000 DEF. He activates Super Bugman’s effect, which switches the DEF and ATK of attack position monsters on the field as long as Super Bugman is face up. Terabyte’s 0 ATK rises to 2900, and Yuuma makes an “OH SHIT” face. His Hope’s and Archer’s ATK are also switched, which is pretty bad news. The teacher attacks Hope with Terabyte. Since Yuuma is still in his “lol ima do the opposite of what you say” mode, Astral tells him not to avoid the attack, Yuuma, of course, uses Hope’s effect to negate the attack. Hope has no OLU left, so when it gets chosen as an attack target next time, it will have to be destroyed. The teacher places one card face down and TURN END.
The timer is down to 5 minutes. Yuuma’s turn. Astral tells him to summon Zubaba Knight and overlay it with Achacha Archer to Exceed summon No. 17 Revise Dragon. Yuuma actually listens so he summons Revise Dragon. However, Super Bugman’s effect causes its ATK and DEF to switch. Revise Dragon has 0 ATK. Yuuma then realizes that Astral has been saying the opposite of what he wants Yuuma to do so things go JUST AS PLANNED. Astral tells him that if he uses Thunder Shot, he will win (this is not a lie). Yuuma actually does it. Thunder Shot inflicts 500 damage for each monster the opponent controls, dealing a total of 1000 damage to the teacher. The teacher activates Damage Vaccine Omega Max to heal back his LP.
Yuuma’s liek “FUUU–” but Astral reminds him that he set a trap card earlier…Yudan Taiteki (which is apparently a Japanese saying that unpreparedness is one’s greatest enemy). When the opponent recovers life points, he can destroy one of the opponent’s monsters. He destroys Super Bugman, and the monsters’ ATK and DEF return to normal. Yuuma uses Revise Dragon to attack Terabyte, and then directly attacks using Hope. Yuuma wins with 2 minutes left on the timer.
Yuuma wonders how Astral knows that the teacher will recover his LP. Astral is just observant and good at reading people, unlike a certain hot-headed kid with incomprehensible hair. Astral takes the teacher’s No. 34 Terabyte, and the teacher returns to normal. Astral recovers some of his memory and it turns out that he came from space? OTL couldn’t quite catch that part.
Yuuma tells the now normal teacher to stop the virus, but he reveals that the virus has no switch and can’t be stopped. Back at home, onee-chan finally defeated that boss, but the timer isn’t stopping. Finally, the timer reaches 0 and…nothing happens except that a building lights up. Yes, the whole point of the things was to light up a building and project a huge hologram of Bugman. WTF.
It would make absolutely perfect sense for me to photoshop his face into the trollface.
Well, if this continues then Yuuma’s gonna have a shitload of awesome cards soon. Stealing other people’s ace monsters lol. I actually like the designs of the Numbers so far. Kibouou Hope is a sparkling gold Gundam, Revise Dragon looks like glass and is really a glass cannon with its 0 DEF, and Terabyte looks like some mecha from a children’s anime done in CGI. I wonder what No. 99 will be?
