"What Lies Beyond the Entertainment!?" is the fourth chapter of the Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V The Strongest Duelist Yuya!! manga. It was first published October 1, 2015, in the Saikyō Jump magazine.


Yuya Duels Reiji Akaba for an exhibition Duel, but the latter's tactics surprise him and everyone else.

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.

Duel continues from the previous chapter.

Turn 3: Reiji
Reiji attacks and destroys "Performapal Helpprincess" (1200/1200) with "D/D/D Flame King Genghis" (2000/1500) (Yuya 3500 → 2700). Next, he attacks and destroys "Performapal Friendonkey" (1600/600) with "D/D/D Wave King Caesar" (2400/1200/2 ORU) (Yuya 2700 → 1900). Lastly, he attacks and destroys the Defense Position "Performapal Springoose" (1100/2400) with "D/D/D Gust King Alexander" (2500/2000).

Turn 4: Yuya
Using the already set Pendulum Scales of "Stargazer Magician" (Right Pendulum Scale 1) and "Timegazer Magician" (Left Pendulum Scale 8), Yuya Pendulum Summons "Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon" (2500/2000). At this point, Yuya obtains an Action Card, "Gravity Turn", and activates it, targeting "Odd-Eyes". Yuya attacks and destroys "Temujin" with "Odd-Eyes" (Reiji 3000 → 2500). Since "Odd-Eyes" destroyed a monster by battle, the effect of "Gravity Turn" activates, increasing its ATK by 100 ("Odd-Eyes" ATK 2500 → 2600) and allowing it to attack again. Yuya attacks and destroys "Ceaser" with "Odd-Eyes" (Reiji 2500 → 2300). With this, the effect of "Gravity Turn" activates again ("Odd-Eyes" ATK 2600 → 2700). Yuya attacks and destroys "Alexander" with "Odd-Eyes" (Reiji 2300 → 2100).

Turn 5: Reiji
During his Standby Phase, Reiji takes a total of 2000 damage from the effects of "Dark Contract with the Gate" and "Dark Contract with the Swamp King" (Reiji 2100 → 100).[Notes 1] At this point, Reiji obtains an Action Card. Using the already set Pendulum Scales of "D/D Savant Galilei" (Right Pendulum Scale 1) and "D/D Savant Kepler" (Left Pendulum Scale 10), Reiji Pendulum Summons "D/D/D Doom King Armageddon" (3000/1000). Reiji attacks and destroys "Odd-Eyes" with "Armageddon" (Yuya 1900 → 1400). Since Yuya's monster was destroyed by battle, Reiji activates the Action Card "Space Debris", inflicting damage to him equal to the DEF of the destroyed "Odd-Eyes" (Yuya 1400 → 0).
