I know he probably means for her to explain it without talking about magic or the past but this just cracks me up. XD

And now she’s not even letting him reuse his destructive cards either and pretty much proves that she could have stopped him the first time if she had wanted to, but she deliberately let him use them.

This is actually fantastic because Kaiba doesn’t just want to win, he wants to beat down anyone who challenges him. (Doesn’t he bring out Obelisk against some random dingdong in the prelims?) And Ishizu knew that, and she’s 100% using that against him. Interestingly, the only people that have managed to get past his deck destruction strategies are Pegasus and Ishizu.

Youre right. Plus, Ishizu is still keeping her calm and collected nature—it is such a contrast now with Kaiba’s rage. She knows how Kaiba works, even if he surprises her in the end.

I love this duel so much. It’s honestly one of my favorites in all of Battle City. The way Ishizu utilizes her abilities to calmly duel circles around Kaiba for the first half was an amazing display of her as an active character, not just the mystical fortune teller who popped up to expose plot. Even more than that, I love the premise it sets up about Kaiba. Up until this point, everyone is bound to the strings of fate. We’ve been told time and again that everything that has happened to Yugi and the gang is all destiny. And it would seem that Kaiba is a part of that destiny. Except for this duel. This duel shows us how Kaiba gets to act outside of everyone else’s predestined path. He’s so fucking determined to make his own way that he gets to screw the rules of their universe and make up his own. Fate moved out of his way and gives him an alternative strategy than the one Ishizu predicted. And that extends beyond the one duel and across the whole series. It seems like he’s one of the few characters capable of independent choice in a universe of destinies and fates. That aspect makes his character all the more interesting to me.

Huh…youre right! I never thought about it like that. I mean, it is super awesome how Kaiba screws the rules at the end of this match, but I never thought about that as a whole. Kaiba does seem to be a character that tries to not have his every move be predetermined, which aligns perfectly with his motivations and past. Plus, he does seem to not ‘follow the rules’ throughout the series, and that’s interesting. Not to diss on the other characters who are really integrated in the plot and being part of destiny—like Atem for example—Kaiba is just different. A good different.

Do you ever stop and realize that the average person doesn’t know what a ship is or what canon means.

We probably just all sound like pirates.
