Yusei had synchro summoned Junk Archer instead of Black Rose Dragon against Z-One and won the duel right there. All the tension would have been drained out completely and we would be thinking "Seriously, that's it?"


I don't know about anyone else but if Yusei actually did that I'd give the man a medal and commend his pragmatism. After laughing my ass off for a good 5 hours.


Not arguing how pragmatic it would have been, but it still would have been an anti-climax (especially given the anime's propensity to solve problems the roundabout way rather than the most direct like in real life duels).

I would have no issue if Yusei had won using Junk Archer. My main problem with the ending is that Zarc's never actually beaten. It's not even a good call back to Dark Marik losing the Battle City Final by forfeit either, both because at least Dark Marik could be challdged in intersting duels and the decision to forfiet was Marik ending his animosity with Atem. With Yuya, he has to be freed and quit because Zarc was too OP PLS NERF.

The answer to that is easy! Before the duel, he included the 6 other Synchro Dragons (Red Demons, Black Rose, Ancient Fairy, Black Feather, Power Tool, Life Stream) in his extra deck. Not to mention 1 empty slot to accommodate the fact that Shooting Quasar Dragon didn't exist yet. So clearly, Junk Archer was one of the ones he had to remove to meet the 15 card Extra Deck limit!

My logic is flawless! /s

But the Extra Deck limit doesn't exist in the anime. ZEXAL proved that.

I think it's really interesting that a common complaint seems to be the fact that Yuya wasn't the one to defeat Zarc,since it actually ties into a type of narrative storytelling. Whether you like his work or not ,Max Landis does have the credentials to know what he’s talking about and he touches on the idea of The hero having to be the one to defeat the villain.

https://youtu.be/CYjfglG-TV0

Two more examples that he doesn't mention are The Return of the King and Raiders of the Lost Arc,both excellent examples of storytelling that got fit into this same theme of the resolution of the story being outside the grasp of the hero.

Now obviously I'm not saying that Arc-V is on par with these works,because it's definitely not,and as I said I'm mostly being annoying and playing devils advocate here. I certainly like Arc-V and it got me back into the TCG,but I feel pretty neutral about the episode itself and don't have the same emotional investment that the people who followed the show for the past 3 years do. It just seems to me that people are upset this wasn't tied up in a neat shonen bow when this resolution is a legitimate storytelling device (we can however argue that the execution was shoddy,which I would agree with)

The problem is that what happened here defeats the purpose of the main theme of the series, and Yuya's, the protagonist, central character arc.
