Recap / Yu Gi Oh Arc V Ep 22 The Fortunetelling Girl Mieru Hochun

Go To

Yuya starts his third battle to enter the Junior Championships, going against a fortune-teller in the process. Mieru Hochun (Aura Sentia) claims her predictions are always correct, and correctly deduces Yuya is troubled about something, that being how to go beyond Pendulum Summoning. Aura herself is also troubled — that morning her tarot reading told her the duelist she would face that day will be her true love, and Yuya is nothing like she imagined!


Using Flip-effect monsters, Aura Ritual Summons Prediction Princess Tarotrei (Tarotray the Sibylla) and uses its effect in tandem with her Flip monsters to seal Yuya's attacks. She also makes another prediction about him; if he continues this duel, he will meet with disaster.

This episode contains examples of:

  • Accidental Pervert: Yuya falls down the stairs and straight under Aura's skirt.
  • Confusion Fu: Aura's Prediction Princess deck revolves around setting monsters, then Flip Summoning them later. As such, Yuya cannot come up with a strategy as he cannot see his enemy.
  • Foreshadowing: The coin they use to determine who goes first has a dragon on one side and a demon on another. We find out that Yuya was both in his original form as Zarc.
  • Innocuously Important Episode: This is the first time Ritual Monsters have appeared in the anime since the GX era, having been completely absent in 5Ds and Zexal.

  • You Can't Fight Fate: Mieru uses this opinion to try to get under Yuya's skin, even telling him to forfeit so that he doesn't get hurt.

How well does it match the trope?
