List of Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V episodes

Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V is the fourth spin-off anime in the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise, produced by Nihon Ad Systems and broadcast by TV Tokyo. It is directed by Katsumi Ono and produced by Studio Gallop. Its plot focuses on Yuya Sakaki. Yuya is a boy seeking to become the greatest entertainer in Action Duels who brings forth a new summoning method to Duel Monsters known as Pendulum Summoning. This season takes place right after Yuya, Zuzu, Gong, Shay, and Sylvio got sucked into a wormhole that sent them to two different dimensions. Yuya, Gong, Shay, and Sylvio were sent to the Xyz Dimension, while Zuzu was sent to the Fusion Dimension.

Like the previous two seasons, there are four theme songs used for this season: two opening themes and two ending themes. From episodes 99-124, the fifth opening theme is "Kibō no Hikari" (キボウノヒカリ, lit. "Light of Hope") by Unknown Number, while the fifth ending theme is “Vision” (ビジョン, Bijon) by Kusoiinkai. From episodes 125-147, the sixth opening theme is "Pendulum Beat" by SUPER★DRAGON, while the sixth ending theme is "Shussō Pendulum" (出走ペンデュラム, Shussō Pendyuramu, lit. "Racing Pendulum") by M!LK.[1] However, for Episode 148, the second opening and ending themes were not used. Instead, the second opening theme "Burn!" was used for the ending theme.[2] For the English Dub version, the opening theme is "Can You Feel the Power".
