yuzu/yuuto dynamic is pretty creepy but also,
Arc-v previews released in japan of future episodes!!!
Braceletshipping for the day.
(I’m pretty sure Shun would stalk Yuuto for going along with Yuzu alone (if Yuzu was really Shun’s sis)
some overdue twitter stuff part 2

V-Jump October 2014
i like the idea of arc v pretending Yuya was the protag in the ads and promotional stuff but then when the series actually started they were like “PSYCH HERE’S YUZU”
but why’s their ship name kirugon when it can be freedyck

It’s so weird.
When I made this blog three years ago, I don’t really know what I expected. I mean, my first post was a random Bionicle/Phoenix Wright thing from Pixiv. As far as I can tell, I made it to scream about random Bionicle stuff into the relative void.
I mean, the Bionicle tag back then? Empty. I’ve said this in a past post, but I could go in it and scroll to the end. Nobody knew it, nobody posted about it. Well, not nobody - artrica was there, and kazi and jay, and before long Cactus was posting, and then something weird happened.It started to grow.
This was back before the rumors, mind you. Way before. Bit by a bit, brick by brick
HAHAHAHA kill me, people showed up, and I wasn’t alone in all sorts of crazy elemental robot shenanigans. I wrote an Onua/Lewa fic and people read it, for crying out loud.
And now here we are. It’s back. God only knows where things’ll go from here, but I think it’s safe to say this little corner of the community is only going to grow from here on out.Thank you, Bionicle tag. You’ve had your ups and downs, but it’s been a good three years screaming incoherently into you and getting equally mad screams back in response. Here’s to many more.
//dabs at eyes
oh man, when the majority of people started moving to tumblr (around that time 2-3 years ago) the Bionicle tag was slower than a turtle, but miraculously, even for a fandom that went through a period of no new canon, and the uncertainty if it’d ever be coming back, that tag just grew and grew.
I’m so excited for what these new chapters will bring!
more people to talk robots with yes? Y es.
Arc V’s storyline has been very intriguing to me- I’m super excited to see where the anime will take us! I made this post with the intent of organizing my thoughts on what’s been revealed, and wrote down some guesses for the future.
What we know:
- Yuya’s dad is missing
- Reiji is monitoring summoning energies (with a close eye on XYZ and Fusions)
- Ruri has been captured
- Yuuto and Shun have conflict against LDS for unknown reasons
- Yuuto and Shun’s duels cause shockwaves that can be felt in real life without the use of a matter generator
- Yuuto and Shun are looking for information on the Academia
- Yuzu’s had her bracelet since she was born
- Yuzu’s bracelet warps Yuuto away when Yuya is near
- Sora is not from the same dimension as Yuya
- Yuuto made a mistake in the past (may be the cause for Ruri’s disappearance)
- Ruri is Yuzu’s counterpart
- Yuuto’s dimension bears a striking resemblance to a Heart Land City in ruins
- Yuuto, and Shun are rebelling against something
Extrapolation of the plot with a lot of guesswork:
A group called the Academia was responsible for Yuuto’s home world being in ruins. Why? That is unknown, but I have a feeling it has to do with summoning energies. But before I explain that, I’m going to get some other stuff out of the way.
My theory is that there are parallel dimensions in which one summoning type is dominant. Sora comes from the fusion summoning dimension, as he commented that Fusion summons were normal where he came from.
Yugo also comes from the Fusion world. His name, “Yugo” has the same romaji as the Polymerization card, a staple of Fusion summons.
It’s very likely that Yugo was responsible for Ruri’s disappearance. We see in Yuuto’s flashback, that right after Yugo leaves, Shun asks him: “Where is Ruri?”.
Yuuto also tells Yuzu (Ruri’s counterpart) that the Polymerization card does not fit her. If Yugo, someone who specializes in Polymerization, was holding Ruri hostage, then this seems like a fitting thing to say.
Yuuto, Shun, and Ruri live in a world where XYZ summoning is dominant. Both Yuuto and Shun have been seen XYZ summoning, and the ruins from Yuuto’s flashback look very similar to the buildings in Zexal as seen in this post.
In Zexal, we had a Special Summon, a single Fusion summon, no Synchros, but a shitton of XYZ summoning. If Yuma and Yuuto lived in the same XYZ dominant world, then this makes sense.
In addition, Reiji’s DDD archetype can lend to some foreshadowing too. He tells Yuma what DDD stands for- “Difference Dimension Demon”. Emphasis on the “Different Dimension” part:
Each of his 3 DDD monsters are summoned using a different technique- fusion, synchros, and XYZ. They can be attributed to representing each of the worlds where ____ summoning is dominant.
Now back to summoning energies, and possibly why Yuuto’s world is in ruins.
A lot of energy is given off when Yuuya, Yuuto, Shun, or Sora do their respective summonings. Reiji’s little radar alarms go off the hook when this happens.
When a student from Yuya’s world does it though, it doesn’t give off big signals. Most likely because there is no dominant summoning method in Yuya’s world. (Before Pendulum happened that is)
Now, this is a lot of guessing on my half, but I think that whoever the main antagonist of Arc V is, this Academia or whatever, what they’re trying to do is harness this summoning energy for something. And they’ve been travelling to different dimensions trying to take over worlds to accomplish this. That’s why Yuuto and co. are living amongst ruins; they’re in the middle of a war trying to fight back against this mysterious invader.
Yuya’s dad is also involved, particularly with Pendulum summoning. What’s so special about Yuya is that he opened up new possibilities in summoning, which is something Reiji also wants to do given all his testing into making his own Pendulum cards. If Yuya’s some sort of catalyst for creating new summoning methods and evolving them, then no doubt the big Arc V baddy will be focusing on him soon enough.
It’s still unclear what Reiji’s plans are, but I think to think that he’s ultimately a good guy. Probably monitoring for suspicious activites, and trying to develop technology to fight against whatever impending threat is happening. It’s also possible that he believes he is doing good, but actually a part of someone else’s darker scheme.
With this being said, there are still questions that need to be answered with this theory like:
- What is the Academia?
- Are they related to LDS? Seeing as Yuuto and Shun have a vendetta against the both.
- What the heck is up with Yuzu’s bracelet?
- No seriously, what is up with her bracelet??
- Are there Yuzu/Yuya counterparts in other dimensions too?
Anyway, that’s my whole speel on everything so far! I have to re-iterate again that these theories are my own and not to be taken for canon. It’s a lot of guesswork based on watching old shounen animes, and working off whatever hints were given in the anime.
I totally look forward to whatever’s going to be revealed this week, the upcoming season finale, and also everyone else’s theories too!
