Aichi doesn't give into evil to get Royals back, even though he has Golds. Leon didn't have a goddamn choice, it was either give into Void or the rest of them die..
    Yeah, the point about Aichi using his own power is out the window, especially considering that his whole deck theme is based around relying on others for power and he's dependent on the Golds to help him in the first place.

    The comparison with Leon and Aichi is...woefully undersupported considering what they're going for. They try to equate the Aqua Force and Royal Paladin sealing as one, but for Aichi it's the loss of Blaster Blade--and with him his entire first season history and relationship to Kai--that puts him in a similar position. Which is Takuto's fault, and not a direct result of the sealing. To make it really work, you have to fall back on the alternate timeline shenanigans that Takuto probably did away with when he "returned everyone's memories." It's still possible to assume that there's both memory replacement and timeline changes happening concurrently, but that's more answers than we have questions and it's too late in the season for this to be revealed. If it were revealed, it would be an S3 retcon and the entire Aichi-Leon comparison only works in retrospect, not right now.

    Aichi losing his life, achievements and boyfriend could be equated with Leon recognizing that his family is going to die out and be forgotten, because Kai forgetting Aichi and Blaster Blade and the time they spent together to be on AL4 is genuinely terrible for Sendou as it seems that he's lost control of his life and is now dependent on the Gold Paladins/Takuto to help him just as Leon is on the Void. Aichi losing his favorite trading cards could not be.

    The whole Shadow Realm rules business versus the characters messes up a lot of the drama. If we were left in the dark to assume that everyone was dead until ride 104, and communication with the outside world was cut to eliminate the peanut gallery assuring us that the characters are fine, it would be a whole lot more compelling.

    blatant
    limit break with ezel, 3 card stack, bottom card is blue

    it was either spirit or platina, if the former for dramatic effect, then lol

    Translating from Chapter 26 of the manga, this will probs be a spoiler for Link Joker.

    Spoiler:
    Aichi wins the Asia Circuit as first place, Koutei places second, Ren places third. Suiko
    of all people hands Ren his award, which is really frustrating given
    that the flashbacks in Chapter 13 showed them together and he should
    recognize her and I'm disappointed that this is her debut after that
    buildup.

    Aichi's new classmates ask him what his hobbies are.
    There are no cardfighters in Aichi's class, and his classmates don't
    know what Vanguard is. Also, it seems like the Circuit is just a
    national tournament in the manga, not one for all of the Far East. Aichi
    tries to make a Cardfight club at his high school to draw people in,
    making a poster to put up for it, and Miwa wants Misaki to help since
    they're at the same school now, but Misaki insists that it's impossible
    for her to do club activities because she has to help out at the shop.
    (Misaki calling Miwa "Miwa-san" is real cute.) There's an underlying implication that Aichi is being immature for playing card games in high school.

    Aichi
    accidentally bumps into Naoki and meets him like they're in a shoujo
    manga. He tries to convince Naoki to try Vanguard, but Naoki's answer is
    sorry but no. Aichi walks out, and finds his club's poster torn down
    and shredded in the hall.

    The chapter cuts to Kourin being
    escorted to her first class, she stops in the hall and sees another
    poster that Aichi put up in place of the old one.

    The
    introduction of the Kourin-Aichi romance subplot and the Asia Circuit is
    a little forced because the manga has not had tournaments up until now,
    Ultra-Rare didn't exist until this chapter and Suiko is the only member
    that's been seen previously. Otherwise, leagues more interesting than
    our current anime plot.

    also hiss takuto die in a fire etc etc

    1/13/13


    Link Joker is amazing and there is more tension in the first episode over Aichi being looked down on and having no friends at Miyaji than in the entire Circuit finale had over the end of the world.

    They haven't revealed Blaster Blade Liberator's skill, but Aichi rode it at two damage and did nothing, so I think that the choreographer was specifically hinting that it's not our typical retire skill. Houki and Angelic Liberator are super cute, the fight quality was pretty great for an introductory episode (way better than Takuto v Aichi) and there's new music at play in addition to the new characters. Naoki is a pretty unique character in his own right, I'm looking forward to seeing him fight Kourin next time.

    The anime has made Liberators exciting, but I'm waiting more for Wingal Liberator than any of the others.

    Ride 117 spoilers:



    Ren is back, everything is wonderful, the healing process is in full swing. We can forget the Circuit ever happened. I love this season.

    My only complaints are that the subtitles are saying Asteroid when the characters are saying Foo Fighter, and that Suiko still uses Angel Feather when they had such a great opportunity to switch her clan.

    Actually, I might keep a Fuckup Count for every instance that we see of Team "Asteroid" in this season.

    そんな櫂の前に、「カトルナイツ」と名乗るファイターたちが現れる。その4人――ガイヤール、ネーヴ、ラティ、セラ――は、いずれもヴァンガードファイトで世界トップクラスの実力を誇るファイターたち。
    不思議な力を操る彼らは、アイチを探す事を諦めるよう、櫂に宣告する。
    はたして彼らの目的とは…!?そしてアイチとの関係は…!?

    What is their purpose and their relationship with Aichi?

    Now with the new power of “Legion” in his hands, Kai will face who get in his quest for Aichi. A new battle has begun!

    I got bored around the Circuit era, but it was a fun ride, enjoyable enough Smile

    It was nice to have a Main Character who didn't always win.

    The new season that started today will be great, because Kai is the protagonist.

    Season 1 is good and season 2 is good if you can mind the fillers. Season 3 is half shitty but Season 4 looks promising. Go for it if you have nothing else to watch/do.

    Season 2 = Season 1 > Season 3

    Season 4 is still to be judged..

    Yeah I usually skip filler so that's no problem, but does the series as a whole have lots of padding? Like f****** One Piece takes 5 or so minutes before the episode starts and half the damn episode is just jump cuts and reactions.

    In the later half of the full series, they start to really speed up the cardfights like, crazily fast. I wouldn't say the padding is One Piece bad, but it's still kinda noticeable.

    Alright I suppose this will have to go onto the backlog with everything else then ;_;

    unless of course Cherry would be willing to go the extra mile in convincing me, physically.
