"A Shared Bond!!", known as "The Bonds Between the Two!!" in the Japanese version, is the fifteenth chapter of the Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL manga.

This chapter was first printed in the 4/2012 issue of V Jump, released on February 21, 2012.


Trusting Astral's words, Yuma risks his life in the Speed Field in order to pass Thunder Spark and obtain victory.

Featured Duel: Yuma Tsukumo vs. Thunder Spark

Duel continues from the previous Rank.

Turn 10: Yuma
Yuma passes Thunder Spark, and the Speed Duel rules allow him to Normal Summon twice. He Summons 2 Level 4 monsters[Notes 1] and overlays them to Xyz Summon "No. 50: Black Ship of Corn" (2100/1000). Yuma then activates its effect, detaching an Overlay Unit to destroy "No. 91: Thunder Spark Dragon", but Spark activates his face-down card "Let Me Off Easy", paying 1000 Life Points (Thunder Spark 4000 → 3000) to negate the effect of "Black Ship of Corn". Yuma Sets a card.

Turn 11: Thunder Spark
Spark activates the second effect of "Thunder Spark Dragon", detaching all 5 Overlay Units to destroy all cards Yuma controls, but Yuma activates two Trap Cards: "Ray of Hope" and "Ghost of a Grudge". Due to the effect of "Ray of Hope", Yuma prevents his "No. 39: Utopia" from being destroyed by the effect of "Thunder Spark Dragon", and due to "Ghost of a Grudge", as Spark has 8 or more monsters in his Graveyard, the ATK of "Thunder Spark Dragon" is reduced to 0 (2400 → 0).

Turn 12: Yuma
Yuma activates "Monster Reborn", Special Summoning "Black Ship of Corn" from his Graveyard. He attacks and destroys "Thunder Spark Dragon" with "Black Ship of Corn" (Thunder Spark 3000 → 900), while "Utopia" attacks Spark directly (Thunder Spark 900 → 0).
