This chapter was first printed in Japanese in the 6/2014 issue of V Jump, released on April 21, 2014.


The duel between Kaito and Yuma continues as Kaito continues to fight for Haruto's soul.

Featured Duel: Yuma Tsukumo vs. Kaito Tenjo

Duel continues from the previous Rank.

Turn 5: Kaito
Kaito tributed "Galaxy Eyes Full Armor Photon Dragon" to inflict damage equal to this ATK to Yuma. Yuma activates Hope 1, sending Number 39: Utopia from his side of the field to the graveyard to make his life points 1 instead of 0 (Yuma 2500 → 1). Kaito sets one card.

Turn 6: Yuma
Yuma activates his set Xyz Reborn Plus to Special Summon Number 39: Utopia (2500/2000) from his graveyard, attaching Xyz Reborn Plus to it as an Xyz Material. He then activates its second effect allowing him to send it to the graveyard to draw 2 cards. Next, he performs Shining Xyz Evolution using Utopia to Xyz Summon Number S39: Utopia ONE (2501/???). He also activates Final Countup to change the Attack of Utopia ONE to the difference between his and Kaito's life points, 3999 (2501 → 3999/???). Utopia ONE proceeds to attack Kaito directly (Kaito 4000 → 1). Kaito then activates his set Galactic Fury allowing him to special summon one Galaxy monster from his graveyard, as long as it has less defence points that the total damage he took this turn. He chooses to special summon Galaxy Eyes Full Armor Photon Dragon (4000/3500). Yuma sets 2 cards.

Turn 7: Kaito
Kaito declares an attack using Galaxy Eyes Full Armor Photon Dragon. Yuma activates Magic Rebounder, preventing Utopia ONE's destruction and damage to Yuma's life points and also destroying Galaxy Eyes. Kaito activates his Quick-Play Spell Shade of the King, negating the destruction of his Rank 8 Galaxy Eyes and allowing him to Xyz Summon one Xyz Monster who's rank is one higher than that target.

Duel continues in the next Rank.
