Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL Episode 26: "Let the Duels Begin!"
Anna Kaboom, known as Anna Kozuki in the Japanese version, is a character that appears in the Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL anime.
Anna has red hair, styled in a manner similiar to Jaden Yuki's. Her usual attire is a pink and white shirt, which reaches below her waist, black pants and a pair of boots in the same colors as her shirt. During the World Duel Carnival Finals, she initially wore a brown cloak over this outfit to hide her identity.
When she participated in the Couple Duel Tournament, she stole and wore Tori's school uniform along with her brown shoes and socks.
When speaking in the Japanese version, Anna uses "ore" (俺) when referring to herself (supporting her tough girl attitude), a pronoun that is predominantly used by males and very seldom used by females (who are most likely tomboys in nature). Anna is also shown to be quite hotheaded and reckless, often rushing into things without thinking the situation through.
Astral calls her Dueling style very reckless (using up her entire hand in the second turn) but also very calculated (being able to push her opponent in a corner in only the third turn), which coincides with her personality.
Anna has also displayed a degree of selfishness, seen when she had difficulty working together with Yuma during the Couple Duel Tournament, using his monsters to bring out her own (using his "Gogogo Golem" to Xyz Summon her ace card, as well as Tributing his "Gauntlet Launcher" with "Grade-Up" to revive the aforementioned card). She was able to put aside her pride at the end of the Duel and activate "Devoted Love", knowing it would cause her to lose but give Yuma a winning chance.
Anna carries a powerful cannon with her that can fire multiple shots at once.
This weapon can transform into a hovercraft, which Anna can use as transportation to get around, while still retaining its ability to fire. This is similar to the flight mode displayed by Paradox's Duel Runner. However, while flying, she often doesn't pay attention to where she's going, which led to her bumping her head on a light pole and a bridge on two separate instances.
The cannon is collapsible, able to be stored in a knapsack that can enlarge it to full size in a manner similar to how a parachute is activated.
While in elementary school Anna was a tough girl who protected bullied children, in addition, she had a soft side and had a crush on "Yuma". Before she transferred schools, she wanted to confess her feelings to Yuma, but he never showed up due to how she constantly mistreated him. It is later revealed that the boy Anna actually had feelings for was a different boy with a similar name to Yuma's, Kumo Tsuyuma.
Anna was taught how to Duel by Umimi Habara. She promised Anna that if she could beat her, then she'd do what ever Anna wished. She later attended the wedding of her friend and her husband, Tobio Habara, managing to catch the bouquet. Anna then looked in the bouquet to find the "Devoted Love" card, which Umimi said would assist Anna in finding her true love.
World Duel Carnival PreliminariesEdit
On the morning of the World Duel Carnival, Anna arrived in Heartland City via the train line. She was later seen observing the introduction to the tournament alongside Duelists such as Charlie McCay, Quattro and Reginald Kastle.Later that day, Anna assaulted Yuma and Tori with her flying cannon, but continuously missed due to their swift tactics, despite doing it several times. When Anna finally managed to corner the duo, she fell off of her cannon and Yuma suggested that they Duel instead; if Anna won, then Yuma would become her boyfriend. Despite Anna's reckless and brute tactics through cards such as "Rocket Arrow Express" and "Superdreadnought Rail Cannon", Yuma managed to defeat her with his new Xyz Monster, "Temtempo the Percussion Djinn". After the Duel, Tori revealed to Anna that Yuma isn't the boy she was after, it was Kumo Tsuyuma. Since Anna did not officially enter the tournament, she could not give Yuma a Heart Piece for winning the Duel, therefore she just flew off on her flying launcher in anger. However, in the end she did develop feelings for him, first loving, then hating him after hitting her head while thinking about him.
World Duel Carnival FinalsEdit
Anna ambushed and tied up one of the WDC finalists and concealed her identity under a cloak, entering the finals in that person's place in an effort to meet with Yuma again. She then got onto one of the Duel Coaster carts and sped off with the other finalists, leaving Yuma behind.
Later on Anna arrived to save Yuma when the Triad of Terror gang up on him and managed to protect him at first. However, the Triad's various team formations cornered her as well up to the point of defeat if it hadn't been for the appearance of Nistro who evened out the battlefield. After Yuma defeated Coyote, Anna and Nistro helped him defeat Jackal by allowing him to Summon "One-Eyed Skill Gainer". However after this, Wolfsbane tried to defeat Yuma with a direct attack which Anna intercepted, causing her to lose the Duel and fall off of the Duel Coaster. She was rescued by her flying launcher, however. Her sacrifice enabled Yuma to defeat Wolf. She wished him good luck in the finals and flew off.
Yu-Gi-Oh ZEXAL IIEdit
During a festival hosted at Heartland Academy, Anna blasted a hole into the Monster Cafe held by Yuma and his friends, annoying Tori. Anna then laughed at Yuma's cosplay of "Temtempo the Percussion Djinn". Rei Shingetsu then burst into the room to inform Yuma that Umimi and Tobio Habara, a professional tag team were entering the tournament and that Umimi would retire after that. Upon hearing this, Anna threatened Rei to see if he was telling the truth. Despite wanting to enter, Jen and Summer informed Anna that only students at the school could Duel against the pair. Upon hearing this, Anna stole Tori's school uniform in order to pass as a student at the school. She then forced Yuma to be her tag partner with her cannon. As the Duel began, Anna and Yuma began bickering, which greatly affected their Dueling performance, resulting in the destruction of Anna's "Superdreadnought Rail Cannon" as well as having to face off against the pair's "Skypalace Gangaridai". As the Duel continued, Anna's selfishness continued to diminish any attempt at teamwork such as Tributing Yuma's "Gauntlet Launcher" via "Grade-Up" to revive her "Superdreadnought Rail Cannon Gustav Max", which was later destroyed again by Umimi's "CXyz", "Supercolossal Sky Fortress Babylon". Despite this, Yuma saved Anna, taking a large amount of damage in doing so. This made Anna realize what Umimi meant with the "Devoted Love" card, which Anna used later on, allowing Yuma the chance to Xyz Summon "Number C39: Utopia Ray V", winning them the Duel. Afterwards, Umimi told Anna that the reason she's quitting Dueling is because she's pregnant. She then encouraged Anna to be Yuma's girlfriend and pushed her towards him, calling it a "direct attack" which accidentally caused the pair to fall down a flight of stairs.
World Duel Carnival PreliminariesEdit
Anna plays a Railway Deck that uses both Beatdown and Burn strategies. She utilizes monsters with extremely high Levels and ATK/DEF scores, and relatively easy Summoning requirements, to first gain an advantage. However, said monsters have drawbacks that leave her defenseless like leaving her with no cards in hand or Spells and Traps, reflecting the recklessness of her actions.
