Summary

Yuma, Astral and Colonge discuss about the Numbers War

Yuma and Astral discuss about the Numbers War.

At Yuma's house, Yuma and Astral discuss about the Numbers War along with Cologne. Astral states that they have retrieved a total of six "Numbers". Yuma articulates that it's going to take forever to gather all 100 "Numbers", but Astral says that's not necessarily since most of Numbers are held by Shark, Kaito, Dr. Faker's group and them. He goes on to say that it is also the reason of why Kyoji Yagumo declared the "Numbers War". Cologne claims that who ever win the Numbers War gets all of the Numbers. Yuma, wondering that Kaito is fight to rescue his brother and Shark's fighting to settle the scores with Kyoji, asks if they really have to fight? Astral replies that they must protect this world and the Astral World - it's a noble mission. Cologne mocks Yuma saying that if his afraid to fight, then she will fight instead of him. Yuma denies that he doesn't mean that and that he was saying that if Yagumo and Dr. Faker has joined forces then we have a common enemy with Shark and Kaito. And that if Dr. Faker and Yagumo is defeated Shark and Kaito no longer need the "Numbers", so that joining forces would form the ultimate force. Astral utters that it won't be easy, but they should talk to them.

He then uses its other effect, detaching "Killer Frilled Shark" to allow "Bahamut Shark" to attack Shadow directly which defeats him. After the Duel, while taking the Number card Shadow left, Shark states that Yagumo to be careless for not challenging him directly. Luna replies that Yagumo is too weak to challenge him since your stronger. She comments that Dr. Faker is a mad scientist bent on destroying everything and Yagumo's heart must be deep in the shadows if he's helping a villain like that. Shark asks her why she was helping a mad scientist. She replies that Dr. Faker wasn't always destructive - he was a researcher bent on developing an energy system that would solve our environmental problems in one stroke. Shark queries what has happened to him whereas Luna comments that an accident made him change.

Kite and orbital

Orbital 7 detects a new "Numbers" signal.

In Kaito Tenjo's hideout, Orbital 7 utters that he have detected a new "Numbers" signal in the outskirts of Heartland City. Kaito suggest why this "Numbers" signal was clear than the others and it must be a trap, but neither the less Kaito claims that the early bird catches the worm and leaves with Orbital.

In order to stop him, Luna claims that she will eradicate the "Numbers" no matter who stand in her way.

Manga - SharkvsKaito

The Duel between Shark and Kaito begins.

After school was over, Yuma rushes with Kotori to find Shark, but time suddenly stops. Astral suggest it's Orbital 7's doing and this means that Kaito is dueling somewhere. In outskirt of city, Kaito appears and was greeted by Shark and Luna. Shark comments he have been wanting to duel him regardless of the "Numbers" and Kaito replies the feeling is mutual.

At the roof of the building, Shadow appears and affirm how the two followed his signal and are dueling as he planned. He then claims that the "Numbers" that the two have gathered will pushed into the abyss of death and after that he will get rid of Yuma.
Deep sea field spell activates

The field turns into a "Deep Sea Field".

Back at the Duel, Shark summons "Marinejet Seahorse" and Kaito asks Shark if he really thinks he can defeat his "Galaxy-Eyes" with that an attack of 1600. Shark replies that he doesn't have any monster to match the attack point of "Galaxy-Eyes", but underwater will and activates the Equip Spell Card "Anchor Whale. He then equips "Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon" with "Anchor Whale", which reduces its ATK by 1000 during each End Phase. Shark then sets 2 cards. During the End Phase, the effect of "Anchor Whale" activates, reducing the ATK of "Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon" by 1000 to 2000.
