Using the effects of both his newly summoned monsters and the Pendulum Monsters he used to summon them, Yuya manages to defeat Ishijima with his Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon and win the duel. Yuya's victory brings a lot of potential new students to the You Show Duel School, wanting to see the Pendulum Summon in action. Yuya participates in an exhibition Action Duel with his friend, Yuzu Hiiragi. However, when Yuya attempts to perform a Pendulum Summon, he finds himself unable to summon the monsters he could before. Believing he needed to be in some kind of crisis, Yuya encourages Yuzu to attack him, but he once again fails to perform a Pendulum Summon and loses the duel, leaving the spectators disappointed. After the duel, the spectators, who learn that Pendulum Summoning requires 'Pendulum Cards' that only Yuya has, accuse Yuya of cheating in his match against Ishijima and storm off. All of them leave except for one young boy, Tatsuya, who stands by his support for Yuya and decides to join the school, encouraging Yuya to try and master the Pendulum Summon so he can once again receive the applause from before. Meanwhile, someone at Leo Corporation prepares to make a move on Yuya and his Pendulum Cards.
