“Mysterious” indeed. This episode really caught my attention though I can’t exactly say why. Perhaps it was because of the “mysterious” ending that creeped me out just as much as it made me anticipate for the next episode…
Morikawa and his friend Izuki invite Aichi to visit a card shop (not Card Capital) called “PSY shop”.
At first, the trio are able to see holograms of cards until a little girl comes along and starts to show them around. The group arrives at a room containing a “Vanguard Fight Stage”.
Morikawa and Aichi almost play on it until a blond haired woman named Kourin intervenes. A battle starts between Kourin and Aichi on the Fight Stage. Aichi finds out that the stage allows the players to visually see their monsters battle each other.
However, the battle ends with Kourin’s win and Aichi’s loss. All isn’t lost though, as a blue haired lady named Suiko comes along and gives Aichi another Grade 3 card called “The King of Knights, Alfred”.
Suiko tells him to keep it as “a memento of your visit here” (the shop). Kourin advises Aichi to fight in a tournament. She also says “When you (Aichi) get stronger, I’ll fight you again.”
Well, Aichi lost…again. Since TMS chose the fact that he’s gonna be a wimp newbie of a protagonist, can’t really blame Aichi for losing. The thing that really interested me this ep was when Kourin told Aichi to participate in the tournament. I was practically “OH YER~ FINALLY SOME ACTION” :D
Next Episode Preview:
The next episode is called “The Fearsome Soulblast!”. From what I can see, it’s going to be the start of the local card shop tournament and there’s gonna be a duel between Kai and Kamui. :O KAI’S BACK~ ;D This is gonna be interesting. My good guess is that Kai is gonna win…again.
Until next time!
