"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.
Yuya challenges the divination girl Mieru Hochun to a Duel, as his third one to earn the qualifications for the Junior Youth Championship. Even at the beginning, Yuya is already played around with by Mieru, who uses Flip Summon monsters. Mieru even correctly predicts that Yuya "cannot see what is in front of him" and launches a brutal assault with her pride-and-joy Ritual Monsters, causing Yuya to be unable to focus. Also, Mieru makes an inauspicious divination for Yuya...
