"A Date With Fate: Part 1", known as "The Fortunetelling Girl - Mieru Hochun" is the twenty-second episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V anime. It first aired in Japan on September 7, 2014 and in Australia on November 21, 2015.
Yuya challenges the divination girl Aura Sentia to a Duel, as his third one to earn the qualifications for the Junior Arc League Championship. Even at the beginning, Yuya is already played around with by Aura, who uses Flip Summon monsters. Aura even correctly predicts that Yuya "cannot see what is in front of him" and launches a brutal assault with her pride-and-joy Ritual Monster, causing Yuya to be unable to focus. Also, Aura makes an inauspicious divination for Yuya...
Featured Duel: Yuya Sakaki vs. Aura Sentia
At the start of the Duel, the Field Spell Card "Fortune Teller" is activated, as per the rules of an Action Duel. It will allow the players to use Action Cards, but they may only have one in their hand at a time.
Turn 2: Yuya
Yuya draws "Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon" and his hand contains "Performapal Elephammer", "Performapal Springoose", "Performapal Kaleidoscorp", "Performapal Partnaga", and "Stargazer Magician". Yuya passes.
Turn 3: Aura
Aura Flip Summons "Prediction Princess Coinorma" ( 3/800/1400). Its Flip Effect activates, letting her Set a Level 4 or lower Flip monster from her hand, Deck or Graveyard. She Sets one from her Deck. "Coinorma" attacks directly. Yuya finds and activates the Action Card "Lousy Luck", which inflicts 800 damage to him (Yuya 4000 → 3200), and the attack continues (Yuya 3200 → 2400). Aura then Tributes "Coinorma" to Tribute Set a monster. Aura Sets a card.
Turn 4: Yuya
Yuya draws and Normal Summons "Performapal Bowhopper" ( 4/1500/1000). "Bowhopper" attacks Aura's Set monster, but Aura activates her face-down "Black Cat-astrophe" as she controls two or more face-down Defense Position monsters, ending the Battle Phase.
Turn 5: Aura
Aura Flip Summons "Prediction Princess Arrowsylph" ( 4/1000/1400). Its Flip Effect activates, letting her add a Ritual Spell Card from her Deck or Graveyard to her hand. She adds "Prediction Ritual" from her Deck. Aura Flip Summons "Prediction Princess Crystaldine" ( 5/1400/2200), whose Flip Effect activates, letting her add a Ritual Monster from her Deck or Graveyard to her hand. She adds "Prediction Princess Tarotrei" from her Deck. She activates "Prediction Ritual", Tributing the Level 4 "Arrowsylph" and the Level 5 "Crystaldine" to Ritual Summon the Level 9 "Prediction Princess Tarotrei" ( 9/2700/1200) in Attack Position. "Tarotrei" attacks and destroys "Bowhopper" (Yuya 2400 → 1300). Aura Sets a monster.
Turn 6: Yuya
Yuya draws "Timegazer Magician". He then places "Timegazer Magician" ( 8) into the left Pendulum Zone and "Stargazer Magician" ( 1) in the right Pendulum Zone. Yuya Pendulum Summons "Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon" ( 7/2500/2000) and "Performapal Elephammer" ( 6/2600/1800) in Attack Position and "Performapal Kaleidoscorp" ( 6/100/2300) , "Performapal Partnaga" ( 5/500/2100) and "Performapal Springoose" ( 5/1100/2400) in Defense Position. The effect of "Partnaga" activates upon its Summon, allowing Yuya to target a monster he controls and increase its ATK by 300 for each "Performapal" monster he controls. Yuya targets "Odd-Eyes" (2500 → 3700). "Odd-Eyes" attacks "Tarotrei", but Aura activates the effect of "Tarotrei", allowing her to change her face-down Defense Position monsters to Attack Position. Her Set monster is revealed to be "Prediction Princess Petalelf" ( 2/800/700), whose Flip Effect activates, changing all face-up Attack Position monsters Aura's opponent controls to Defense Position and prevent them from changing their battle positions for the remainder of this turn. "Odd-Eyes" is changed to Defense Position.

- Even though the card image of "Prediction Princess Tarotrei" shows it having 2700 ATK, its ATK gauge is displayed as 2600 instead and the damage calculation is done based on that value. The gauge is corrected in the English dub.
- In the dub, when Aura uses the effect of her "Prediction Princess Crystaldine" to add a Ritual Monster from her Deck to her hand, she mistakenly says that she's adding a Ritual Spell Card.
