"His Name is, the Red Genius Duelist - Reiji Akaba!!" is the third chapter of the Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V The Strongest Duelist Yuya!! manga. It was first published August 1, 2015, in the Saikyō Jump magazine.


Yuya is invited for an exhibition Duel with Reiji Akaba, the president of Leo Institute of Dueling.

Featured Duel: Yuya Sakaki vs. Reiji Akaba

Note: This Duel uses a special gameplay in order to make it simpler for the children, which makes the Monster Cards have no effects whatsoever.

Turn 1: Reiji
Reiji activates "Dark Contract with the Gate", allowing him to add "D/D Lilith" (100/2100) from his Deck to his hand. He Sets a monster.

Turn 2: Yuya
Yuya activates "Stargazer Magician" (Right Pendulum Scale 1) and "Timegazer Magician" (Left Pendulum Scale 8) in his Pendulum Zones. He Pendulum Summons "Performapal Helpprincess" (1200/1200), and "Performapal Friendonkey" (1600/600) from his hand in Attack Position, as well as "Performapal Springoose" (1100/2400) in Defense Position. Yuya attacks Reiji's Set monster with "Friendonkey", however, that monster is revealed to be "D/D Lilith", so the attack fails (Yuya 4000 → 3500).

Turn 3: Reiji
During his Standby Phase, Reiji takes 1000 damage from the effect of "Dark Contract with the Gate" (Reiji 4000 → 3000);[Notes 1] next, he activates its effect again, adding "D/D Savant Kepler" to his hand. Reiji activates "Dark Contract with the Swamp King". He then activates "D/D Savant Galilei" (Right Pendulum Scale 1) and "D/D Savant Kepler" (Left Pendulum Scale 10), allowing him to Pendulum Summon "D/D Nighthowl" (300/600), "D/D Cerberus" (1800/600) and "D/D Berfomet" (1400/1800) from his hand. Reiji overlays "Cerberus" and "Berfomet" to Xyz Summon "D/D/D Wave King Caesar" (2400/1200/2 ORU). Next, he tunes "Lilith" with "Night Howl" to Synchro Summon "D/D/D Gust King Alexander" (2500/2000). Finally, he activates the effect of "Dark Contract with the Swamp King", banishing "Lilith" and "Night Howling" from his Graveyard to Fusion Summon "D/D/D Flame King Genghis" (2000/1500).

Duel continues in the next chapter.
