That show doesn't make their fan wait for over 15 year just to see the Protagonist becoming a King or Champion !
It's okay. I think I'm done with this thread though since I kind of feel like the odd person out here and I don't feel like spending another hour replying to another post. I respect your opinions and I hope that you keep enjoying Zexal. I'm just waiting for more characters that I can actually care about, better writing and hopefully a better inevitable fifth series at some point.Quote:

Hey I thought Astral will disappear if Yuma lose a Duel that involve a Number !
So Doesn't that mean that if Yuma lose to Kite now then Astral will disappear ?
I hope I get to see Astral & Kotori talking to one another in Zexal II .
Just when I though numbers couldn't get any more cooler...
That Number is really awesome. Although my favorites will always be Number 39: Kibou Ou Hope and Number 33: Machu Mach. X3
I don't think that this duel involved a Number card. As Human mentioned, Kaito already lost his Number cards to Tron and those were taken by Dr. Faker after Yuma defeated him. I'm not sure who has them now since there was no indication that Astral absorbed them or if Dr. Faker still has them for some reason.Quote:

I'm still hoping that Rio is going to be a decent character and that the second season will be decent too, although the impressions it gives me are pretty much the same impressions I got from the previews from when Zexal first started, which is basically nothing blows me away, but nothing turns me off from it at the same time.
Yeah, I'm still confused about the Haruto situation as well. I don't understand how he's at least somewhat cured, since I thought his illness was something he had since he was young, and just defeating Barian for the moment really didn't explain to me how he got better miraculously.
Also, in regards to episode 72 (not 73), I couldn't help but laugh at how awkward Haruto and Dr. Faker looked sitting on the couch together. XD
While I kind of liked Kaito vs. Yuma, at least the second part, I'm not sure if it was really necessary to have it at the end of this season. They could have saved it for the end of the series instead and the same basic message of showing where Yuma is as a duelist could have worked, even I still think that they'll go back to having Yuma make a huge mistake to be a joke at some point anyway. Even Kaito's whole issue of not having motivation to duel, which did make sense all things considered, was rather easily solved, or at least the depression he was feeling at the first half of the duel was, and his dueling in the second half didn't seem radically different from previous matches. He just wasn't obsessed with Haruto's safety or collecting Numbers. I have a strong feeling that his motivation to face these new villains will involve Haruto, especially when I still don't think that there's much to his character beyond his concern for his brother, which may make this whole dueling for himself bit unnecessary in the grand scheme of things. Though, I guess it's a better sendoff to the first season than the duel against Dr. Faker would be, though I still think that isn't really saying much, and at least Tron is back with his sons. It would have been nice to actually have an explanation as to why he still has powers or how he survived though.
The duel was mehish. Although all things considered it was pretty cool. I wasn't invested in it or interested in seeing Kaito's lack of passion to duel any more get resolved. It did succeed in giving him some needed depth, but yeah... not interested. Now don't get me wrong, I think Kaito is a cool character, and that at times, he could be a bit interesting, but not a really interesting one. He's just a bit dull at times for me. He usually spreads a mood with his manoeuvres that excites me, but since there wasn't a drama factor in the duel and he didn't do his usual manoeuvres I couldn't help but yawn continuously. I wouldn't say that it was a pointless duel since Kaito really needed a new passion. Still, that's no excuse for how rushed things felt. Having both versions of their ace monsters on the field was a great idea, just executed horribly because their battle went so fast. Yuma summons his versions of Hope, then Kaito summons his, destroys Yuma's, then poof, duel over. Meh. I'm OK with the outcome since Yuma has already won a lot of duels consecutively, so him losing one was a breath of fresh air.
I gotta say, Yuma sleeping after so much duelling was a nice touch and a nice way to end the season. The Astral look alikes looked cool and interesting. I can't wait to see what they've come up with.
I really wanna watch this episode now. I can't wait to see my Kaito-sama win. X3
AHHHG, I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE ZEXAL II! IT LOOKS AWESOME! ><
Plus, I'm not sure how much the whole Kaito feeling passionless about dueling matters in the long run. It did make sense that he didn't want to duel after Haruto was cured, somehow, but I have a strong feeling that his motivation to duel against the new villains in the next season will involve Haruto anyway. I can't see them letting Haruto be happy and healthy for the rest of the series or give Kaito motivation to duel in more dramatic duels that didn't connect to Haruto considering how Haruto makes up a good portion of Kaito's character anyway. I'm fine with Kaito winning since Yuma didn't really have to win unless they wanted to end their rivalry before going onto the second season and I still don't like Yuma at all, so I don't have much of a problem seeing him lose.
I didn't really like that since it just felt thrown in for a combination of comedy relief and an attempt to create more tension, but at least he didn't faint from hunger. That gag always annoys me. I am curious about the villains and how they'll deal with them in the new season.Quote:
