It would have improved the narrative if Shark and Rio switched places during the whole ‘Astral is dead’ arc, and here’s why:

This is Shark’s big problem. He’s the one with the existential crisis between being human and Barian. Why not have him dissociate so bad that he becomes comatose or catatonic or have there be a real big struggle with this instead of him giving up so easily. Go more into his headspace.

Rio has already been in one bullshit coma, she doesn’t deserve another one. She should take this time to develop her character and actually get to do something. 

I would have loved it if Rio and IV tag dueled against jelly fish guy. It would have put a nice conclusion to their meeting that connected IV to Shark in the first place.

Rio and IV confronting each other again. 

Rio and IV saving Shark

Rio doing more in general as Shark goes more into a struggle against Barian and stuff

The narrative just…Makes more sense but of course it didn’t happen. 

Protags and their Spiritual Partners
  • Yugi: My Aibou. He gives me the confidence I need and I teach him humility. The most important person in my life.
  • Judai: My sorta boyfriend partner? Turns out we were aliens in past lives and they got dragon armor and went crazy with space madness. They got better.
  • Yusei: uh
  • Yuma: My teammate. He can be annoying when handing out advice but I teach him a thing or two from time to time. Wouldn't trade him for anything in the world.
  • Yuya: My other me? He sends me a voicemail every half year about either bringing smiles or killing academy kids. Shun really misses him.
  • Yusaku: piece of shit i'm stuck with. Almost got me killed with a tornado. Need him for revenge reasons.
