Reiji Akaba and Isaac dueling in space in Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V manga chapter 27
Card games in space!

With the power of the Transcendent Pendulum Summons, Reiji Akaba has called forth the card that his father left him: Super-Dimensional Sovereign Emperor Zero Paradox. He attempts to take down Isaac, but Isaac employs his Reflector combo to keep Akaba away.

Isaac again recollects his final moments with Adam. He could have saved Adam… But, he didn’t. Perhaps, thought Isaac, if Adam weren’t around, Eve might have eyes for him. But Eve never did forget the one man she loved. And so Isaac continues to live his life searching for that man, all the while carrying the burden of this secret that he’s unable to tell Eve.

It’s Isaac’s turn. He summons three Mirror Imagine Prism Coat 8 monsters, who steal Zero Paradox’s attack strength and neutralize Akaba’s spells and traps. Isaac powers up his Mirror Imagine Catadioptricker 7 and confidently attacks Zero Paradox.

“I will save Adam and Eve!!” howls Isaac. “This is the end, Reiji Akaba!!”

“I disagree,” Akaba replies calmly. He reveals that during the entire duel, he has been monitoring Isaac and tracing the location of his comrades. Akaba expressly selected the space colony as their duel stage knowing that it would give him the quiet environment he needs to keep an eye on all of the information Isaac was sending back to his team. Slowly, numerous floating cameras descend around Isaac. The researcher is furious.

“Sora!! Wipe out this colony!!” Isaac exclaims, startling the boy watching the duel from afar. Sora uses a Solid Vision trick to vaporize the colony. In a blink of an eye, the gargantuan mass disappears and Akaba and Isaac are floating in space, the cards of their decks now scattered high and low. The two duelists are kept alive by helmets that Sora materializes for them.

But Akaba reveals that he expected this to happen all along. He plays a trick of his own, the spell card Zero Gravitation. This allows him to treat both duelists’ decks as one. The cards that had been strewn all around them are suddenly pulled into the space between the two men, forming a neat pile. Akaba then activates a new effect of Zero Paradox, one that would allow him to use Isaac’s Pendulum cards as his own. Akaba uses Issac’s Mirror Imagine Secondary 9 to special summon a Mirror Imagine monster from their combined deck. He calls Mirror Imagine Reflector 1.

Isaac is mortified. He knows exactly what Akaba is about to do.

Akaba turns Isaac’s own Reflector combo against him before powering up Zero Paradox. Akaba’s ace demolishes Catadioptricker 7.

Thoughts

I admit that I’m far from being an expert of the Yu-Gi-Oh! card game, but even I can tell when things are getting ridiculous during a duel. And this duel is ridiculous. Combining decks? C’mon! It makes dueling in space without spacesuits seem perfectly acceptable.

Isaac, don’t you know that jealousy never pays off? Pfft.

I was not expecting to read a Japanese parable in this manga! Yuya tells the tale of Mori Motonari, a real feudal lord who lived in the 1500s.

Close-ups of Isaac and Reiji Akaba in Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V manga chapter 26

Reiji Akaba and Isaac are locked in combat. Isaac has unveiled to Akaba his perplexing Mirror Imagine monsters, who work together to neutralize Akaba’s monster effects and attacks. Now, Isaac goes on the offensive, using his monsters’ effects to power up his ace, Mirror Imagine Catadioptricker 7, to an overwhelming 7000 attack!

As Akaba is about to bear the brunt of Isaac’s game-ending energy beam assault, Akaba bets his life on his next draw. Isaac is amused.

“Hmm… Entrusting yourself to fate now?” Isaac asks the president.

“No, not at all! Fate isn’t what I call my predictions for the future!!” Akaba retorts.

As Reiji Akaba dauntlessly draws from his deck, Isaac sees a shadowy figure materialize behind Akaba. It’s Adam! Akaba draws the card he needs, vaporizing Catadioptricker 7’s attack and saving him from defeat. As the smoke from the attack clears, Adam’s image fades away with it. Isaac wonders if Adam blames him for not stopping the experiment that led to his disappearance all those years ago…

Isaac is mystified by the card Akaba has drawn. Akaba doesn’t wait to demonstrate its power. It’s a new monster that can only be summoned when the total of his Pendulum scales exceeds its level.

“Come!! Transcendent Pendulum Summons!!” Akaba cries out. “Come forth, D/D/D/D Super-Dimensional Sovereign Emperor Zero Paradox!!”

Thoughts

After two chapters with plenty of exposition and flashbacks, it’s back to a chapter of intense dueling. So many monsters in this manga look creepy, Reiji Akaba’s especially. The cool but creepy category gets a new addition this month with Zero Paradox. What is that thing?! We’ve seen this monster before — in Scale 18, just as Ren interrupts Yuya and Reiji’s duel. Back then, its identity was still a mystery since only its hand was shown. And, as the flashback in this month’s chapter reveals, Zero Paradox was shown even before that in card form; it’s the card that Reiji picked up at the end of Scale 13.

Reiji Akaba summoning D/D/D/D Super-Dimensional Sovereign Emperor Zero Paradox

It’s clever that these two scientists both use monsters whose names and designs reference measurements, lenses, and mirrors. Reiji’s actions here make me wonder what he has “seen” of the future.

If Adam is helping Reiji because he blames Isaac for what happened to him, does this mean Adam doesn’t want to be found by Eve and her organization? Have they been wasting their efforts all these years? They must know something about Adam that’s yet to be revealed…

Adam and Eve in Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V manga chapter 25

In a futuristic era, a young Solid Vision researcher named Isaac encounters two brilliant minds at a top university. The fellow researchers, having fled from a war zone, believed in helping humanity achieve peace using the power of science. Their names were Adam and Eve. Almost immediately, Isaac takes a liking to them and their dedication. He joins them in their quest to tap into the potential of the Solid Vision technology for the good of mankind.

One seemingly ordinary day, the trio discovers a door to another world filled with boundless energy — enough to even allow for travel through space-time. Oh the possibilities that this discovery could bring about! They attempt to harness that energy by sealing it within a card, but find it to be uncontrollable. That is, until Adam realizes that a human body is needed to utilize that energy.

Adam offers his own self in the name of science, grasping at the “forbidden fruit” while his colleagues look on, not knowing what to expect. The experiment sends Adam’s body and mind through time, from the prehistoric world, through the Iron Age and the modern era.

“This energy has a will of its own,” says Adam as he is released from what appeared to be a trance. “And that is what sent me across time.”

Eve is distressed by the results, imploring Adam to stop the experiment. But Adam wishes to press forward, believing that their endeavors hold “the answer.” And so they continue.

Young Isaac watching Adam's experiment nervously and wondering if he should stop it in Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V manga chapter 25

Many a time, Isaac wonders if he should end the experiment, knowing that they are dealing with powers far beyond them. But he never does. And eventually, the experiment spirals out of control, radiating immense quantities of energy.

Adam realizes that he alone would be the only one who could stop it, so he merges with that energy and vanishes, leaving only a dormant G.O.D. card behind.

…Or so Isaac recites to Reiji Akaba. Ultimately, he and Eve hope to use the power of the dormant G.O.D. card to travel through time and find their lost friend and colleague…an act of love.

Thoughts

So the mysterious Adam is finally revealed. And he looks like an ordinary person. I guess I didn’t really know what to expect, but with all of the prattle about the majestic Adam Factor, I wouldn’t have been surprised to see…more. But no, neither he nor Eve physically standout, quite unexpected of important Yu-Gi-Oh! characters.

Furthermore, they are both good, ethical people, which provides a contrast to the world-destroying powers of G.O.D. that revolve around them and that have been fueling the story thus far.

Reiji Akaba enjoying his duel against Isaac in Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V manga chapter 24

Yuya Sakaki has defeated Ren! The force of Yuya’s attack flips Ren’s Duel Runner forward, sending Ren tumbling to the ground. He lies on his back, exhausted. The stress that he’s put on his body and loss of this duel are too much for him. Slowly but surely, his body is destroying itself.

“When we gave ourselves to G.O.D. and surpassed the boundaries of lives within time and space, we stopped aging,” Ren explains to Yuya. “However, the burden of having repeatedly crossed space and time is eating away at our bodies.”

Yuya, perhaps sensing that Ren is about to escape, anxiously presses him for answers about the Adam Factor. Ren gazes straight up into the distance.

“It’s an illusion that Eve is chasing,” he says.

Ren describes Adam as a brilliant magician and scientist, one with even more astonishing skills than Yuya. Adam was romantically involved with Eve, and when G.O.D. appeared, Adam’s soul “scattered beyond the dimensional horizon.” It now exists within Yuya and Reiji Akaba. Yuya is dumbfounded by this revelation.

G.O.D. will awaken when the Adam Factor and Eve Factor come together, Ren continues, and when it does, it will want to control time. Ren warns Yuya that its power controls people without their knowing.

A portal opens on the ground behind Ren’s back. Ren wonders wearily if Yuya might be able to resist G.O.D.’s temptations and live out his own destiny. He then closes his eyes and disappears in a flash of light.

Yuzu approaches Yuya, elated that he has won his duel. She’s puzzled about Ren’s statement that he’s a descendant of Yugo. Yuya remembers seeing the glowing orbs containing his real memories hidden in the deepest parts of his mind. But he only smiles and says to Yuzu that it’ll probably all make sense when the time comes.

Yuya and Yuzu head to the control room where they discover that Reiji Akaba has suddenly begun broadcasting a video of himself to the pair. They see the Leo Corporation president standing, straight and impassive as always, with a blanket of stars and a blue sphere behind him. That’s Earth! Which means that he’s in space?! Why is he showing them this?

Leo Corporation's space research facilities in Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V manga chapter 24

Sure enough, Akaba looks to be standing inside a gargantuan space colony, one lined with a vast network of buildings. A figure appears out of the shadows and approaches him. It’s Isaac, who extols the view of the planet and Akaba’s creation.

“In my hands, the Solid Vision system has unlimited potential,” Akaba tells the intruder.

“Ahh, and those are test facilities?” asks Isaac, pointing at the buildings all around them. “With this much space off-planet, you can do many experiments of use to humanity. The contributions you could make through your inventions are incalculable.”

“Yes, that is what this place is for,” replies Akaba. “But now I must use it to fight you.”

Isaac introduces himself as a fellow scientist and confirms Akaba’s suspicions that he’s an assassin for the group known as Eve. They’re hunting down Yuya and Akaba, he explains, because the two possess the Adam Factor, something that limits G.O.D.’s powers. Adam was the first person to discover G.O.D. and he used Solid Vision to manifest it. That’s why they can only extract the Adam Factor from Yuya and Akaba by defeating them in a duel.

Despite what Yuya and Akaba believe, continues Isaac, their fathers did not discover G.O.D. Rather, they were merely manipulated by G.O.D. into reviving it in their own time. Their achievements were all a lie.

Reiji Akaba furrows his brow. Isaac’s comment has incensed him, leading him to lash out uncharacteristically at the intruder.

“Shut up!!” Akaba barks, his clenched fists now trembling. He accepts Isaac’s challenge, but Isaac cautions the tough-minded young president.

“If you lose, G.O.D. will most likely incorporate you.”

Thoughts

Hmm, very interesting. This chapter reveals so much more about the Adam Factor but still leaves us with many questions. If it really is Adam’s soul, I wonder how it’s possible that Yuya and Reiji both possess it. Maybe the Adam Factor isn’t the soul itself but rather is made up of the pieces of the soul that must all be brought together. That could fit with Ren’s explanation that Adam’s soul “scattered” when G.O.D. appeared.

Isaac says the Adam Factor is something “that is limiting G.O.D.’s power” and is “Adam’s curse.” I can understand how it might be limiting; G.O.D. can’t awaken without it. But in what way is a soul like a curse?

With all this talk about the Adam Factor, why isn’t anyone asking about the Eve Factor? Who has the Eve Factor?

What’s the significance is of Adam and Eve’s romantic relationship? Do they have children? That’s gotta be it. With all this talk about time travel and descendants and such, there must be something going on with Adam and Eve’s children and the characters in this story.

Adam was someone who was both a magician and a scientist. He sounds a lot like Yuya and Reiji, or like their fathers.

Reiji Akaba has built a giant space colony thing. Of course he has. It’s like Number 9: Dyson Sphere-esque levels of amazing. Or like something out of a Gundam series that could sustain mankind indefinitely. And in the true spirit of Yu-Gi-Oh!, Reiji will now use this glorious and unfathomably powerful technological facility to help him win a duel. Of course.

Yuya's Duel Runner with a Booster Unit in Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V manga chapter 23

Ren removes his mask and throws it to the ground, shattering it. Yuya gasps upon the sight of a familiar face and haircut. It’s Yugo?! No. Ren reveals himself to be a descendant of Yugo, the duelist whom he idolized when he was younger.

“I do not understand the mind of God,” tells Ren, “But I struck a deal with God and received recompense. In return, I must serve God. That is the fate God gave to me.”

With that, Ren continues his assault on Yuya and vows to complete his “mission.” He uses his spell cards to continually return monsters from his graveyard back to his hand and to strengthen his White Aura Biphamet. It attacks, whittling down Yuya’s life points. Yuya knows that to even stand a chance against Ren, he will need to solve the mystery of Biphamet’s two heads and its ability to seemingly resurrect itself without end. But Yuya can’t overtake Ren and his technologically superior Duel Runner…at least not without some help.

Yuya draws the card Booster Unit. He thinks back to the time when he was preparing for this duel with Yugo. Yuya chose the particle accelerator as the stage because it allows him to pull off a magic trick, he tells Yugo. He had tweaked the particle accelerator so that it shoots Solid Vision mass particles. He can then use his creation — the Booster Unit Solid Vision item — to catch the particles and accelerate.

Back at the duel, Yuzu watches on anxiously from the control room when Yuya suddenly radios in.

“Push the button!!” Yuya says. Yuzu slams a comically large button taped to the center of the control panel in front of her.

Behind Yuya, a Solid Vision beam fires and whizzes toward the duelists. Yuya activates his Booster, catching the beam, and rockets up and over Biphamet. For the first time, Yuya is ahead of Ren, blocking Ren from snagging the Action Cards ahead of him. No longer does Ren have the advantage.

Yuya fills in his open Pendulum zone with Performapal Pendulum Conductor, then Pendulum summons Clearwing Fast Dragon and Odd-Eyes Phantasma Dragon. Yuya uses Clearwing’s effect to drop Biphamet’s attack to zero and prepares to attack. But Ren is unconcerned, proclaiming that his spell makes him immune to damage as long as he has another White monster on the field. This is exactly the information Yuya was hoping for.

White Aura Biphamet’s two heads are actually two separate monsters. As long as one head lives, it can revive the other. Yuya activates Pendulum Conductor’s effect, allowing his monsters to attack both heads simultaneously. Ren is finished for sure this time!

Thoughts

So Ren is Yugo’s descendant after all. As expected. This only leads to more questions of who Yugo actually is, and what type of duelist he grows up to become.

And what is Ren’s mission? Why has he been selected by G.O.D. to be reborn again, only to owe G.O.D. a favor for his additional lives? Ren seems like an ordinary person who died before fulfilling his dreams, just like countless other people throughout history. What makes him special? The answer probably lies with Yugo.

Yuya and Ren’s duel plays out kind of anticlimactically. Yet again, we see a duel introduce elements that are impossible in the actual Yu-Gi-Oh! card game — not once, but twice. Ren’s two-monsters-in-one scenario doesn’t exist in the game, and neither does Yuya’s simultaneous attack strategy. The story doesn’t need these fantastical elements; the already very complex game can play out in other ways. Ren’s previous Reincarnation Synchro strategy with White Aura Whale seems more threatening than this one because that is at least plausible, and is rightfully overpowered to demonstrate Ren’s strength and importance.

But at least this duel introduces something very worthwhile: a new Kuriboh card, Kuriborder!

The 2017 Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG North American World Championship Qualifier is getting another voice actor guest?! That’s right, Yu-Gi-Oh! tournament veteran Darren Dunstan will be attending this year’s event! Darren is best known as Maximillion Pegasus in Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters and Jean Michel Roget in Yu-Gi-Oh ARC-V. He is also the voice director of every Yu-Gi-Oh! series since episode 60 of 5D’s.

Darren’s appearance could very well mean the return of the Ultimate Pegasus Challenge, a special tournament where Pegasus manipulates the game by announcing wacky rule changes while duels are taking place. This event has only ever been held three times — at the YCS Providence 2012, the NAWCQ 2013, and the NAWCQ 2015.

Now that there’s a third guest coming to the event, there simply must be a fourth. Let’s see an exciting two-versus-two tag team duel! C’mon, Konami, make it happen!

The 2017 Yu-Gi-Oh! NAWCQ will take place in Chicago, Illinois, on July 8 and 9.

With an appearance by The King at this event, could this mean that the Western release of the hotly anticipated Red Rising Dragon is just up ahead? One thing’s for sure — a Synchro versus Fusion showdown between Jack Atlas and Aster Phoenix is perfect for getting the crowd all fired up.

This year’s Yu-Gi-Oh! NAWCQ will be held in Chicago, Illinois, on July 8 and 9. Be on the lookout for the schedule of the autograph signings, live duel, and public events, coming soon to the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG events page.
