Arkis: I wonder how it's going in the Spirit World.
Yatsu: Are you going to go see?
Arkis: Yeah, I'll be probably go meet Kian.
The CW (ended 2008)
(Arkis teleports to the Sky Guardian's Floating Kingdom)
Arkis: It hasn't changed since the war. (He approaches the guards) Hey guys, I'm hear to see King Kian.
(The guards open the gate)
Arkis: Thanks. (He walks in, and enters the palace)
King Kian: Ah, Arkis.
Arkis: Nothing has changed here.
King Kian: You could say that. So, what brings you here?
Arkis: It has been a while since I came here, I thought it would be nice to drop by and say "hi".
King Kian: Yes, it would be nice. Why don't you come with me to the Northern Dragon Kingdom, I was going to see Kisuke.
Arkis: Oh yeah, he's getting married with Nozomi isn't he?
King Kian: They already got married, a month ago actually.
Arkis: Nobody told me.
King Kian: You never asked.
(Kian teleports him and Arkis to the Northern Dragon Kingdom)
Kisuke: Kian, Arkis I wasn't expecting you.
Kian: I came to deliver the files.
Kisuke: Oh yeah.
(Kian hands Kisuke a file)
Arkis: So how are things going, now that you and Nozomi have married?
Kisuke: Great, much better than I expected.
Arkis: That's good.
Arkis: There is something I need to tell you guys... it happened over the Winter Break.
Kisuke: What is it?
Kian: Yeah, what?
(Arkis tells them everything)
Kisuke: Control the Shadow Games?
Kian: Is that even possible?
Kisuke: The Shadow Games cannot be controlled. The Shadows act on their own, they feed on our duel spirit for their own benefits. They may assist a duelist, but the odds of that are extremely slim. I've never heard of anyone who could control the shadow games...
Arkis: But it can still be possible, right?
Kisuke: To control the shadows, you would need a power that this universe has never seen before. It would be a miracle actually, no such power has ever been discovered. But I have a theory...
Arkis: What theory?
Kisuke: If they were after you and Sakuko.... maybe they have discovered something. Maybe your duel energies hold the long hidden secret to control the Shadow Games.
Arkis: But why would they want to control it? I don't understand.
Kisuke: For many reasons... Power... Fame... World Domination... and perhaps Society Evolution.
Arkis: How can the Shadow Games evolve society?
Kisuke: I'm not an expert Arkis, even I don't know. But I do know that the Shadow Games give off a certain magnetic energy, that it could perhaps create something even more unique than what average energy is capable of doing. Technology for example... if magnetic energy can be used, new technology can be discovered.
Arkis: But haven't scientists already discovered strong Magnetic Energy?
Kisuke: They have, but not the type the Shadow Games contain.... this is a different kind of Magnetic Energy, very powerful.
Masaki: (Laughs) Made her cry again?
Kisuke: So, what else is new?
Arkis: Nothing really.
Kisuke: Done anything interesting with Sakuko.
Arkis: We dated countless times, but that's really about it. Too much is happening, and we rarely get time to see each other.
Masaki: (Puts hand on Serena's shoulder) As parents it is our job to make sure she doesn't go through the same troubles.
Kisuke: By the way Sakuko is here?
Arkis: She is?
Kisuke: Yeah, I just sensed her. You didn't know?
Arkis: No... I didn't even bother trying to sense anyone.
Masaki: Don't live the past Serena, instead look at the future. What happened with Nozomi won't happen with Makina.
Kisuke: Oh hey, Nozomi.
Arkis: I should be asking you the same thing.
Arkis: (Annoyed) Yeah, our powers always hold the secret to something.
Kisuke: Well, you both come from a family who has experience in fighting the Dark Duelists. So it makes sense.
Arkis: So what are we suppose to do?
Kisuke: Stay hidden, and try to hide your duel energy. They might be able to detect it.
