I’m so so sad that arc v is over
I mean every series has its problems, and I’m sure everyone has something they wish had ended differently, but in the end - that’s what fanworks are for! Arc V in particular has given us so much content, but left an amazing amount of room for us to meddle with characters and side plots, giving us room to fit interactions within the boundaries of canon without affecting the end result - which is something not many series do well.
Arc V has been huge on fan interaction, so I think they left things vague at the end for a reason. Think about the post-canon Leo Akaba redemption that could happen. Think about what that means for all the dimensional counterparts. Think of all the ways things could play out. They want us to continue the story however we see fit - each of us can fill in the gaps however we want!
In all, I wish the ending had given us a tiny bit more to work with, but given the rollercoaster these last 48 episodes have been, it was the ending that best fit the feel of the season. And that was one thing the creators wanted- for each season to feel like an entirely different show. They accomplished that, so having the final episode revert to s1 feel would have been really off. I think they did a great job with a lot of things!
Thank you for being such a huge part of my life for the last three years, Arc V!! You kept me going through a lot of personal stuff, gave me friends when I needed them the most and kept me going during times of loss. And that’s what YGO is really all about!!! I’m gonna miss watching it every week, but now that we have the conclusion - this is when we can really explore all the what-ifs!! All the perfect AUs that call back to canon!! Everything!!
This isn’t the end; this is just the beginning of a new chapter!!
