Reiji Akaba using his scarf to rescue Isaac in Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V manga chapter 28

As Isaac’s life points spiral toward zero, the force of the attack from Reiji Akaba’s monster hurls Isaac backward into the cold emptiness of space. Akaba whip his scarf at Isaac and catches his arm, but Isaac is none too grateful for the rescue. He declares his love for Eve once more before snapping the scarf’s threads. He won’t let the president use him to pinpoint the location of their hideout. Akaba watches as Isaac’s body drifts further and further away. Just as he is about to disappear from Akaba’s view, Isaac is pulled into an interdimensional vortex. Sora Shiunin saves him.

A short time later, Reiji Akaba’s space shuttle lands back on Earth. Shingo Sawatari and Shun Kurosaki are waiting for him. Yuya and Yuzu arrive on a Duel Runner. Akaba reveals that he has discovered the general location of the enemy group’s base. Before any of them can get an explanation out the president, they find themselves on one of Leo Corporation’s air freighters, ready for takeoff.

In the air, Yuya speaks to Akaba in private about the Adam Factor and its presence within their bodies. Yuya thinks Eve’s group is using G.O.D.’s power to change history, and that his and Akaba’s future timeline was affected by their meddling. Yuya vows to destroy the G.O.D. card if he finds it at Eve’s headquarters. Akaba listens silently as Yuya makes his declaration.

Reiji Akaba still doesn't consider Yuya Sakaki a comrade in Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V manga chapter 28

In the recesses of Yuya’s mind, Yuto and Yuri watch over Yugo as he sleeps, still recovering after the taxing duel. Yuto worries about heading into battle without Yugo. He and Yuri vow to protect Yuya with their lives. Over their heads, the power of the Adam Factor pulses loudly from the clouds.

Reiji Akaba’s aircraft eventually finds itself maneuvering through blustery, snowy winds. Below them is an endless view of icy mountains and crevasses. Suddenly a section of the ground splits open, revealing a runway. The aircraft’s passengers are startled by this display as the plane touches down. They’ve landed at Eve’s hideout. In Antarctica.

Within their base, Eve and Sora Shiunin watch Yuya and the gang disembark from their monitors. Beside Eve, there is display of a DNA molecule slowly being assembled within an orb. It’s the Adam Factor. Sora wonders if more time is needed to reconstruct the Adam Factor data. He heads out, ready to take on Yuya and avenge his loss.

Thoughts

First of all, thank you, Shin Yoshida and Naohito Miyoshi, for acknowledging Reiji’s wonderful scarf and giving it an important role in the story. This means so much to the fans of this magical piece of fabric that can transcend the laws of physics.

As quickly as Reiji returns to Earth, he is off again. He’s so gung-ho about taking on Eve that it seems he couldn’t care less if he is accompanied by the other passengers on his trip. Speaking of which, it’s great to see Sawatari and Kurosaki join up with the main characters again. I hope they get to play a bigger role in this story.

Yuya is looking as cute as ever. His card tricks are cute too.
