  • Maybe I just have low standards? nah!

    Joey is gloating over his recent victory that earned him a second star chip. All of a sudden, his stomach rumbles and Joey (along with the others) realize how hungry they are, and none of them brought food. Tristian tell them not to worry and pulls out a book called "The Great Outdoors Survival Guide," which could tell them what fruits and plants to eat. The others are less than enthusiastic about eating wild plants. Joey sniffs the air and runs off. They arrive at a beach, where some fish are grilling over a fire. Joey and Tristian run down and begin feeding. Just then, a man rises up from the water, dressed only in swimming trunks and a dueling glove, carrying a harpoon! The man yells at Joey and Tristian for stealing his food, and attempts to chase them off with his harpoon. Yugi steps up and apologizes for his friends. The man recognizes the famous Yugi Muto who defeated the champion Seto Kaiba. He apologizes for being so rude, and introduces himself as Mako Tsunami, an expert sea duelist. Mako invites the others to sit and eat. They enjoy the food very much, and Yugi asks Mako why he entered the competition. Mako explains that he has loved the ocean ever since he was very young, and plans to buy a boat of his very own if he wins the prize money. They finish eating and get up to leave. Mako then throws his harpoon at Yugi, blocking him from walking away! Mako then demands a duel from Yugi as payment for giving them some fish. Yugi transforms into Yami Yugi and accepts the challenge. A dueling field rises up out of the ocean behind Mako and the duelists take their places.The field is evenly split between land and water. Mako and Yami Yugi each wager 2 star chips on the match. Mako makes the first move, but his monster materializes underwater! Yami Yugi is uncertain how to combat what he cannot see, and plays the Horn Imp. Mako's monster, Fiend Kraken, rises from the ocean and destroys Yugi's Imp. Mako explains that not only does the sea power up his monsters, it hides them from view. Yami Yugi then plays Feral Imp, and powers it up with Horn of the Unicorn. Joey explains to the others that water based monsters are vulnerable to the electric element, which is why Feral Imp is such a good choice. Mako plays a new monster, Giant Jellyfish. It has the magical ability to resist all electric attacks. Fiend Kraken then destroys Feral Imp. Yami Yugi's next monster is Silver Fang, and he uses Mystical Moon to double the monsters power. Mako says this is a foolish move, since the power of the moon can also influence the tides. Mako plays another monster, Mighty Kariyushin, which washes away Silver Fang. After his monster is destroyed, Yami Yugi is horrified to see that almost all of the land half of the field is gone. Only a small island remains. Mako then tells Yugi that he must respect the sea, just as Mako's father taught him. Mako goes on to explain that his father taught Mako everything he knew about the sea. Mako loved his life on the water, until one day when a fierce storm came. Mako's father was washed away. After awakening, Mako looked at the wreckage of their boat and noticed that the life raft was missing! Mako believes his father is alive, and he must win to buy a boat and search for his father. Yami Yugi is impressed by Mako's noble quest, but explains that he too duels for the fate of a loved one, and cannot afford to lose. Yami Yugi plays Giant Soldier of Stone in Defense Mode. Mako summons another sea monster, Great White Terror. Yami Yugi then converts his Stone Soldier to Attack Mode, but does not have him attack Mako's monster. Instead, the Soldier destroys the Mystical Moon! With the moon gone, the tides recede. Mako's sea creatures are beached, and helpless. Yami Yugi then summons Curse of Dragon, and uses the Burning Land magic card to knock Mako's lifepoints down to zero. Afterward, the two duelists shake hands. Mako is discouraged because he is down to only one star chip, but vows to start over. Mako then dives back into the sea, to hunt more fish. The gang walks off, to find their next opponentmoreless
  • In this episode the gang searches for food. They find fish and eat it that belongs to Mako. In Return Mako wants to duel Yugi. They both have the same thing at stake loved ones. Yugi wins but Mako is a really good sport and congratulates him on his win!!!moreless

    I think this episode is average. It was really nice to see Yugi and Mako duel because they both have the same thing at stake. Some of the cards however were overplayed (that's pretty much what they do in the beginning) but I'm really sad to see Mako lose but he was a good sport so good for him. I think Yugi is a great duelist, I think he got beat by no one so far but he will eventually. Mako has a water deck and I have a water deck and I love his deck. I hope they remain good friends after.moreless
  • Simply another bad example for the kids

    Simply another bad example for the kids. Comeon theres a guy out fishing in his underwhere. how does he keep his cards dry? Next we see some ambush action going on which is so inappro[rate, especially with that spear of his. ANYWAY this episode shows Yugi going at it in a sea duel which is unrealistic to the real game. Man this episode should just be forgotten so bye bye bad episode. Please do not watch ths one it is not good or even bad. It is down right horriable. So burn this one and all the copies please. NO i am seriousmoreless
