Recap / Yu Gi Oh Arc V Ep 29 The Fusing Maestras

Go To

Yuzu prepares for her first match, against the same duelist that sparked her Character Development, Masumi Kotsu. Yuzu seems to gain an early advantage when she reveals her own Fusion Summoning and banishes Masumi's Graveyard cards to deny her access to them, but Masumi bounces back and summons her true ace monster, Gem-Knight Lady Brilliant Diamond. Using Action Cards to negate her card effect that would weaken it, Masumi pushes Yuzu on the defensive again.


Yuzu finally turns the tables when she snatches a Fusion Substitute monster, Crystal Rose, from Masumi's Graveyard and uses it to summon Bloom Diva the Melodious Choir, attacking Masumi's Brilliant Diamond in a duel-ending blow. Masumi attempts to get an Action Card to defend herself, but Yuzu snatches it from her and wins the match. Masumi acknowledges Yuzu's development and gives her Crystal Rose as a token of respect.


This episode contains examples of:

  • Action Girl: Not only in dueling, but Masumi and Yuzu pull off some impressive acrobatics to snag Action Cards in awkward placements on the field.
  • Added Alliterative Appeal: In the dub, one audience member's reaction to Zuzu's second fusion summon.
    Woman: She totally created a fabulous flowery fantasy!
  • Bait-and-Switch: Masumi/Julia before giving Yuzu Crystal Rose.
  • Bizarrchitecture: The Infinite Bridge Action Field is a collection of jumbled catwalks and scaffolding that appear to stretch miles into the sky, seemingly without purpose.
  • Bridal Carry: One of Yuzu's monsters to Masumi, when she's about to fall.
  • Foreshadowing: Yuzu's new ace Bloom Diva has a flower theme. Which hints as her status as a Bracelet Girl and her theme of nature.
  • Heroic Rematch: Yuzu vs Masumi.

  • It's All About Me: In the dub, Sora tries to claim he deserves praise for Zuzu's victory, since he taught her the techniques she used to win.
  • No OSHA Compliance: Averted since the entire thing is made out of holograms with safety features, but lampshaded in the dub.
    Nico Smiley: I don't know who designed this crazy construction, but you can be sure nobody checked the safety code before they started building.
  • Took a Level in Badass: Yeah, Yuzu wasn't a slouch before, but she isn't fooling around this time, crushing Masumi's Gem-Knight Diamond on her first turn.
  • Worthy Opponent: By the end, Masumi sees Yuzu as one.

How well does it match the trope?
