"Head-to-Head Cards!!" is the forty-third chapter of the Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V manga.

This chapter was first printed in February in the April 2019 issue of V Jump, released on February 20, 2019.


Yuya aims to bring a smile to Reiji's face. Remembering his father's words, he makes surprising spins to amuse the audience as a Dueltainer.

Featured Duel: Yuya Sakaki vs. Reiji Akaba

Duel continues from the previous Scale.

Turn 6: Yuya
Yuya activates "Pendulum Match", which allows him to randomly Special Summon a Pendulum Monster from his Extra Deck, and Reiji can Special Summon a Pendulum Monster with the same Pendulum Scale as Yuya's monster from his Deck, but at the end of the Battle Phase, any remaining monsters summoned by this effect are destroyed. Yuya Special Summons the Pendulum Scale 4 "Clearwing Fast Dragon", while Reiji Special Summons "D/D/D Supersight King Zero Maxwell" (2800/2500). Yuya activates the effect of "Clearwing Fast Dragon", making the ATK of Reiji's monster zero, and negates its effects ("D/D/D Supersight King Zero Maxwell": 2500 → 0 ATK). "Clearwing Fast Dragon" attacks and destroys "D/D/D Supersight King Zero Maxwell", whose effect causes Battle Damage to become zero. At the end of the Battle Phase, "Clearwing Fast Dragon" is destroyed.

Turn 7: Reiji
Reiji obtains an Action Card. Yuya activates the effect of "Pendulum Match", Special Summoning the Pendulum Scale 1 "Starving Venemy Dragon" from his Extra Deck, while Reiji summons "D/D/D Destiny King Zero Laplace" (0/0). Reiji's "D/D/D Destiny King Zero Laplace" attacks, whose ATK becomes double that of the monster it attacks ("D/D/D Destiny King Zero Laplace": 0 → 5000 ATK). "Starving Venemy Dragon" is destroyed (Yuya: 4000 → 1500 LP). At the end of the Battle Phase, "D/D/D Destiny King Zero Laplace" is destroyed.

Turn 8: Yuya
Yuya obtains an Action Card. He uses the effect of "Pendulum Match", Special Summoning the Pendulum Scale 10 "Dark Anthelion Dragon" from his Extra Deck.

Duel continues in the next Scale.
