I have been following Yugioh Zexal for quite sometime now, and I must say, it is no where as good as 5Ds or GX. There are too many filler episodes that are insignificant to the story. The current Grand Prix arc seems to be quite interesting with an introduction to new villains (the Tron family, Tron, III, IV, and V). Astral World has been brought up a lot during this story-line: its destruction, Astral’s “exile”, and the significance of the Emperor’s Key. I have one question: what the heck happened to Astral world and how are Yuma and his parents tied to all of this?
What we know is that Astral world is being attacked by Haruto Tenjo, who has an ability to send things through rips in space. Dr. Faker is using him to send bombs to Astral world, which are destroying the world. But why? Why is Dr. Faker targeting Astral world. There could two reasons:
- He wants to harness the powers of the Astral race for himself, as they are high intelligent duelists. By controlling the Astral race, he would be the most powerful man on Earth.
- Astral world holds the secret to the Numbers. There might be some legendary numbers card(s) that he wants to possess and is destroying all of the inhabitants of Astral world so that Haruto can use his ability to bring the legendary numbers card(s) to Earth.
