The Action Fields have always been kind of dangerous. Even within the third and fourth episodes, Yuzu and the kids nearly fell to their deaths due to the bridge constantly being damaged and Yuya's life was in danger due to the field taking damage during his duel with Mieru. This one was more blatant with how dangerous it was, but it wasn't too different. It is more jarring when you compare it to how the Action Field for the younger kids is soft while the teenagers are allowed to use potentially dangerous Action Fields with simply no problem. Anyway, I thought that this episode was pretty good. I think that the dub edited the opening bit since Masumi was talking about how Yuzu was distracted again in the original version. Granted, Yuzu talking about how she lost before due to her being confused about Yuya being Yuto never quite made sense to me. While that was on Yuzu's mind, it didn't really factor into her defeat, aside from not getting the right Action Card. It was pretty clear that Yuzu was just out matched to Masumi in their first duel, especially when she didn't have any Extra Deck monsters. Even if Yuzu did pick up the Action Card, it's pretty unlikely that she would have won. She might have lasted longer, but her chances of winning were still pretty low. The duel itself was pretty good. I liked that we got to see Yuzu Fusion summon pretty much right away. She was practicing with Sora for awhile and it showed that she was able to pull it off after all of that effort. Plus, she had a pretty cool monster that worked against another Fusion user. Seeing more of Masumi's deck was also neat. She has the coolest deck out of the three Leo School trio kids and it was cool to see her use some new combos too. While the Action Field was pretty needlessly dangerous and the background wasn't quite as good as it was for other fields, it did work nicely with the duel. Seeing the characters run around, struggle to get Action Cards and use their traps to reduce their opponents' chances of getting an Action Card really added more tension to the match. It's also a good use of the new kind of dueling, especially when it is more refreshing than seeing characters stand on the sides for the whole match. I liked how Yuya was concerned for Yuzu throughout the duel and supportive of her. It does help to make their friendship more sincere. Sora's attitude on the other hand kind of bothered me mainly because he was making the match more about him than Yuzu's progress as his student. It just made him look too cocky and self-centered for my tastes. Masumi's combo with her true ace monster was pretty good and was pushing Yuzu to her limit. It was pretty lucky that Yuzu's Traps saved her and also allowed for Yuzu to get that Crystal Rose. Some might think it's kind of cheap that Masumi would have something like that in her deck, but I always thought that made sense. I was kind of surprised that we didn't see characters use monsters that can take the place of other monsters for Fusion summoning more often, especially during GX, since it can make it easier to have the necessary monsters in your hands. I liked Yuzu's new Fusion monster and the fact that he gets a new ace by using her old one was a nice touch too. It's effect was pretty good and allowed for Yuzu to win the duel. It was nice that Yuzu saved Masumi, even though it really showed how dangerous the Action Fields can be. It was nice that Masumi gave Yuzu that card and wanted to see her win some more. Granted, it was under the whole "you beat me, so you better win the whole tournament logic," but it did show that she respected Yuzu's skills and wasn't angry over losing. It did seem like they were at least on good terms with each other at the end, if not friendly rivals. I can understand why others thought that this should have been a two-parter given that Yuzu has been training for her rematch for awhile. I wouldn't have been against that if that was the case, but I thought it worked perfectly fine as a one episode duel. It was paced well, there was a good back and forth action between Yuzu and Masumi to create more tension and it had a satisfying conclusion. While a second episode could have made the match even better, it might have made it unnecessarily long, especially when there wasn't much of anything else going on here besides the match. Without going into spoilers, I think that this match is one of the highlights of the tournament arc, so I think it was for the best that it was just one episode long for multiple reasons.
