Adam describing how bad he is at dueling while Reiji Akaba looks on unamused in Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V manga chapter 32

While wandering the halls of Eve’s hideout in search of Yuya Sakaki, Reiji Akaba is approached by a ghostly figure. The man, with jet-black wavy hair, materializes in front of Akaba and looks sternly at him. It’s Adam. Suddenly, the pair are standing in another world, surrounded by a network of tree roots and memory orbs. Behind Adam, the roots have coiled up toward the sky and formed a mountainous tree.

Adam introduces himself, revealing that his mind has been wandering through time to escape from G.O.D., and that he is the one who granted Akaba the Adam Factor. This factor, explains Adam, is like a key to releasing G.O.D.’s full power. For now, the power is sealed in a Duel Monsters card, which changes hands through dueling. And all this time, Adam has been waiting for strong duelists to appear to fight G.O.D.

It was quite fortuitous, then, that Yuya’s father discovered G.O.D.’s destructive powers and used the World Illusion to turn back time. You might even call it destiny, for Yuya and Akaba were able to be transported to the past, without falling into the reversion of the World Illusion, and caught the eye of Adam. This, says Adam, happened so that they could fight G.O.D. It was fate.

Even after wandering through time for so long, Adam has still never seen G.O.D.’s real form. But what he has seen terrifies him.

Adam recalls the moment his experiment spirals out of control and sends him away from Eve and Isaac. On that day, as he merges with the immense energy released, he is drawn into a blinding light where he sees a colossal man-made gate.

“Beyond it,” describes Adam, “I saw desolate stars, dead, black, lifeless planets, and I heard the groans of countless lifeforms. Instinctively, I knew that this monster had destroyed those planets!”

Adam couldn’t let this happen to the earth. And so, he gave up his own life to seize G.O.D.’s power.

Thoughts

Great chapter. It’s very dense, with a lot of new details about Adam, G.O.D., and the mysterious power that Yuya and Reiji possess.

G.O.D.’s powers are revealed to be more than just the seemingly benevolent granting of wishes and manipulation of time. There’s something far more sinister going on. It doesn’t appear that Eve and her companions are aware of this. Or if they are, they are blinded by their quest to find Adam. The only thing keeping the power in check, for now, is the Adam Factor.

What’s up the gate that Adam sees? It’s not just an ordinary gate, but a man-made gate. So some person in this story created the gate, which allowed Adam to catch a glimpse of the destruction that has occurred — and what might be in store for his own world. Who could have made it? There aren’t that many candidates. Yuya and Reiji’s fathers might have something to do with it.
