"A Duel In Love", known as "Etoile Cyber" in the Japanese version, is the third episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh GX anime. It aired in Japan October 20, 2004. It aired in the US on October 12, 2005.

Dr. Crowler attempts to get Jaden Yuki expelled from Duel Academy, but instead catches Syrus Truesdale in his trap. Jaden Duels Alexis Rhodes, with Alexis agreeing to remain silent about Syrus' trespassing in the girl's dorm if he wins.

Summary

In Dr. Crowler's class, he quizs the first year students on game mechanics. Alexis Rhodes successfully names all six types of Spell Cards, while Syrus Truesdale fails to explain how Field Spell Cards work.

Crowler comments that he wasn't expecting any more from a "Slifer slacker" ("drop-out boy" in the Japanese version), with Jaden Yuki defending Syrus, reminding Crowler that Jaden defeated him.

Later, Crowler writes a fake love letter and puts in what he believes was Jaden's locker. It turns out to be Syrus' locker. Syrus reads the note and believed that Alexis was in love with him. The letter said to meet her behind the girl’s dormitory at midnight.

Meanwhile, Crowler hid in the bushes behind the dormitory. He planned to take a picture of Jaden trespassing and breaking school rules, so that he would be expelled. (this is because the girls were bathing).

Alexis and her roommates Mindy and Jasmine are in an outdoor bath, discussing male students. In the English version, Alexis shows a particular interest in Jaden, while in the Japanese version, she barely participates in the conversation.

While outside, Syrus showed up and Crowler was disappointed to find out that his plan backfired. The girls caught Syrus and he explained to Alexis about the letter. It was obvious to her that someone set Syrus up, but she decided to use the situation to her advantage.

Meanwhile, Jaden received an anonymous e-mail saying to come to the girl’s dorm if he wants to see Syrus again. Jaden came and Alexis challenged him to a Duel. If he lost, Alexis bluffed she'd report them to the chancellor. Jaden agreed and was ready to Duel.

Afterward, Alexis kept up her end of the deal and let the two friends go. Jaden hoped to Duel Alexis again sometime, especially since it was such a close Duel.

In the English version, Mindy and Jasmine begin to suspect that Alexis might have a crush on Jaden. This is not present in the Japanese version, where Alexis simply describing Jaden by the ambiguous term "interesting".

Differences in adaptations

In the Japanese version, when Asuka, Momoe and Junko are bathing, they are naked. In the English version they are wearing swimsuits.

Notes

  1. In the TCG/OCG, the effect of "Etoile Cyber" increases her attack points by 500, not 600.
  2. In the TCG/OCG, "Cyber Blader" is a Level 7 monster and would thus not be a valid target for "Fusion Weapon".
  3. In the TCG/OCG, one must discard a card to activate the effect of "Elemental HERO Thunder Giant".
