List of Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal II episodes

Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal II (遊☆戯☆王ZEXAL II (セカンド), Yūgiō Zearu Sekando) is the continuation of the Yu-Gi-Oh! anime television series, Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal, produced by Nihon Ad Systems and TV Tokyo. Like the original, this series is directed by Satoshi Kuwahara and produced by Studio Gallop. The anime aired in Japan on TV Tokyo between October 7, 2012 to March 23, 2014, in a different time slot from that of the original series, while the English-language adaptation by Konami began airing in North America on The CW's Vortexx programming block from August 17, 2013.[1] Due to Vortexx's re-airing of Zexal II episodes, new episodes have been moved to Hulu since July 14, 2014, beginning with Episode 114.[2] Since then, most of the episodes have aired on Mondays on Hulu. On December 14, the episodes on Hulu began to be uploaded on Sundays instead of Mondays, with the exception of December 6, which saw Episode 135 being uploaded on a Saturday, because the following Sunday was National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day. The regular airing pattern was broken again when the series finale (Episode 146) aired on February 21, a Saturday, instead of on a Sunday. Following the end of the first series, Yuma and his friends now find themselves up against the evil forces of Barian World.

Six pieces of theme music are used for the series: three opening and three ending themes. For episodes 74–98, the opening theme is "Unbreakable Heart" (折れないハート, Arenai Hāto) by Hideaki Takatori, while the ending theme is "Artist" (アーティスト, Ātisuto) by Vistlip. For episodes 99–123, the opening theme is "Dualism of Mirrors" (鏡のデュアルイズム, Kagami no Duaruizumu) by Petit Milady (Aoi Yuki and Ayana Taketatsu), while the ending theme is "Go Way Go Way" (ゴーウェイゴーウェイ, Gō Wei Gō Wei) by FoZZtone. For episodes 124–145, the opening theme is "Wonder Wings" (ワンダーウィングス, Wandā Wingusu) by Diamond☆Yukai, while the ending theme is *"Challenge the GAME" (チャレンジザゲーム, Charenji za Gēmu) by REDMAN. However, for Episode 146, the Season 3 Japanese opening theme was not used. For the Konami English Dub version, the opening theme is "Halfway to Forever" for all episodes that air in the US.

Frustrated by his loss against Yuma, Vector dives into the center of his planet, into the Sea of Ill Intent, in order to free the Barian God, Don Thousand. Then, Vector offers his life to Don Thousand, and uses his power to resurrect him. Don Thousand grants Vector his power in exchange for locating the seven Mythyrian Number cards that sealed him away long ago. To achieve his plans, Don Thousand merges with Vector, and briefly possesses him, while restoring his injured body. Vector uses Don Thousand's powers to revive Mr. Heartland as a fly, who had fallen into Barian World since the events of the previous series, and he manages to locate some of the Mythyrian Numbers with assistance from Mr. Heartland. Then, Vector uses his new powers to accelerate the healing of Alito and Girag. Meanwhile, Astral brings Yuma, Tori, Shark and Rio aboard the spaceship, informing them of the Numbers scattered across the world. He also shows Yuma a message from Kazuma, saying they will need to obtain the Mythyrian Numbers before the Barians can. As they head to their first location, they end up crashing into Dumon and breaking his Baria Lapis, who ends up in a jungle, injured and stuck in his human form. Yuma doesn't recognize him, and wants to help him out despite Shark's warning to not trust others so easily. They soon come across a temple. After inadvertently activating a trap, Shark and Dumon, who decides to use the alias Nash (the name of one of the 2 missing Barian Emperors), become separated from Yuma and the others, forced to go down separate paths. Yuma's group ends up in the Mythyrian Number's chamber, where it is protected by its guardian, Mach, who challenges Yuma to see if he is worthy. Making matters worse, the walls in the room Shark and Dumon are trapped in start closing in, requiring Yuma to win quickly in order to save them.

This would increase Don Thousand's power by a thousandfold, giving him enough power to destroy Astral World.

Heartland attempts to coerce Yuma into giving up his Numbers to save his friends, but he remains determined to cling onto the Numbers that Astral had left him. He is soon joined by Trey, who offers to support Yuma in a 2-on-1 duel against Erazor. However, Mr. Heartland uses Don Thousand's power (which manifests in a crest-like form of Don Thousand's Barian Emblem) to activate a field effect, which puts Yuma and Trey at a distinct disadvantage against Erazor, by reducing their Life Points to 2000, and raising Erazor's Life Points to 8000.

Arriving in Astral World, Yuma is guided by a Rainbow Kuriboh Kazuma built towards a strange town, where he is attacked by a strange being named Eliphas. Escaping thanks to Rainbow Kuriboh, Yuma receives a message from Kazuma, telling him to save Astral. Meanwhile, Shark, who is conflicted between his childhood memories and Barian memories, is approached by Dumon, who reveals to Shark that he is the leader of the Seven Barian Emperors, Nash. Yuma is rescued by an Astral being named Ena, who states Yuma can use the power of Chaos to restore the damage done to Astral World, which was banished from Astral World long ago, and help its people fight against Eliphas, who has put their world under his control. With Ena's help, Yuma finds where Astral is resting, with Eliphas standing in his way. As the two begin to duel, Eliphas summons his Xyz monster, New Order 4: Etheric Anubis, while Yuma summons Utopia. However, Yuma is soon pushed into a corner when Eliphas exhibits the ability to perform a Shining Draw.

Eliphas uses his Shining Draw to draw Rank-Up-Magic Astral Force, and double ranks up Anubis to New Order 6: Etheric Apophis, while also putting pressure on Yuma by holding Ena and the others hostage. Yuma manages to draw Numeron Force and bring out Utopia Ray Victory to destroy Apophis, but Eliphas activates a trap to summon out New Order 8: Etheric Sebek, before using the effects of his 2 Astral Force cards to upgrade it to New Order 10: Etheric Horus and New Order 12: Etheric Mahes respectively, summoning the previous two forms alongside it. Eliphas uses his monsters to bring Yuma's life points down to 100, and is poised to wipe out the rest of Yuma's life points with his next attack. Meanwhile, Dumon shows Shark the rest of Nash's memories as he battled against Vector to avenge Rio's death, eventually coming across an orphaned girl that looked just like Rio.

Yuma is protected from Eliphas' attack thanks to Rainbow Kuriboh. Meanwhile, Shark continues living through Nash's memories, where he looks after the orphaned girl, Iris, as he goes into battle against Vector. There, Shark is contacted by Rio's spirit, who reminds him his fate is his own to make. Going on his own to face up against Vector, Nash arrives at the labyrinth he visited before and confronts him in a Shadow Game using stone tablets. Vector deals a lot of damage to Nash with his Gorgonic Guardians, but Nash manages to summon Abyss Splash and defeat him. After the duel, however, Nash discovers his men, along with Iris, had all been killed as a result of the shadow game, their souls ascending to Barian World. Having seen all of this, Shark comes to accept the truth that he is Nash, bitterly realizing that Yuma, Astral, and Kite would soon become his enemies. Back in Astral World, Eliphas makes preparations for summoning his Rank 13 monster.

"Hikari o Tsugumono!! Kibō'ō Hōpu Rūtsu" (光を継ぐ者!! 希望皇ホープルーツ)
September 15, 2013 (2013-09-15)September 1, 2014 (Hulu)
Eliphas summons the powerful Rank 13 monster, New Order 13: Etheric Amon, using its effect to take cards from Yuma's deck and turn them into overlay units, growing more powerful. This in turn causes the interdimensional transporter to overload, forcing Tori, Kite, and Quinton to leave it behind. Yuma manages to defend himself by banishing Utopia Ray Victory and defending himself with Rainbow Kuriboh, resummoning Utopia at the end of the turn. Refusing to give up, Yuma gains the power to perform his own Shining Draw, drawing the card Rank-Down-Magic Numeron Fall. Eliphas recalls Astral using a Shining Draw to end the battle with Don Thousand thousands of years ago, which sealed away Don Thousand and cost Astral much of his power, while also splitting the original Astral World into the present-day Astral World and Barian World (the original Astral World's Chaos energy was also banished to the present-day Barian World during this event). Eliphas is shocked that Yuma was able to perform such a feat. Yuma tells Eliphas that his bond with Astral allowed him to do this, and he uses Rank-Down-Magic Numeron Fall to 'rank down' Utopia and devolve him into a new form, Number 39: Utopia Roots. Then, Yuma uses the effects of Utopia Roots to steal Ethric Amon's overlay units and power it up to incredible amounts, defeating Eliphas. To show their gratitude, the people of Astral World lend their power to revive Astral, and purge him of the corruption that resulted from Vector's mechinations, reuniting him with Yuma. After Astral receives a card from Eliphas, Yuma and Astral return home, with Kazuma and Mira watching from afar. Meanwhile, Dumon takes Shark and Rio to Barian World, where Shark comes to accept his destiny as its protector, with Rio choosing to follow him. Determined not to let tragedies befall his people again, Nash betrays Yuma and his friends in favor of Barian World. Meanwhile, Don Thousand and Vector have finished making the Fusionizers, and Don Thousand tells Vector that it is time to put his plan into motion.
12224"Assimilation: Part 1" / "A Sign of the World's Collapse!! Mr. Heartland's Grand Revolt"
"Sekai Kanraku no Zenchō!! Misutā Hātorando no Daihanran" (世界陥落の前兆!! Mr.ハートランドの大反乱)
September 22, 2013 (2013-09-22)September 8, 2014 (Hulu)
Vector is freed from Don Thousand's throne, and sends a million fake Number cards to Earth from the Fusionizers, turning anyone who picks one up into a servant of Barian World. Vector uses his power to choke Mr. Heartland, and threatens him to recover the 3 Number cards that he lost; if he succeeds, Vector will give him a spot among the Seven Barian Emperors, but Vector warns him that this is his last chance. Don Thousand claims that this will be the end of both Earth and Astral World, and that after the destruction of both worlds, he would claim the Numeron Code for himself. Mr. Heartland appears before Kite and the others, revealing he intends to use the energy from the Fake Numbers to connect Earth with the Barian World. Barian World begins to merge with the Human World, and energy from Barian World begin to appear in the form of red spheres. Also, the Earth becomes saturated in Barian energy. Flip picks one of these cards up himself (Number 10: Dark Illumiknight), hoping to become stronger and help Yuma. The others realize that someone had taken a fake Number, and Quattro realizes that Flip had taken one of the fake Numbers, even as he falls under the control of Barian World. Soon afterwards, Flip and other people begin to vanish, and are absorbed into the conduit between Barian World and the Human World. Kite realizes that once the Human World has been merged with Barian World, the Barians would be able to attack Astral World directly, just like how Hart was able to attack Astral World. Desiring to stop Mr. Heartland, Kite challenges Heartland to a duel. Heartland summons the number he received from Vector, Number 1: Infection Buzz King, and deals a lot of damage to Kite. At the same time, Kite also reels from the effects of the fake Number 2: Ninja Shadow Mosquito he got from Scritch. Back in Barian World, Shark and Rio appear before Vector as the 2 leaders of the Seven Barian Emperors, Nash and Marin (in their true Barian forms), much to Vector's shock and horror. Kite falls unconscious from the damage he took, and Mr. Heartland claims Fake Numbers 3 and 4 from both Trey and Quattro. Just then, Yuma and Astral return to face Mr. Heartland.

"Yūsha no Gaisen! Tomo no Ishi o Hikitsugu!!" (勇者の凱旋! 友の意志を引き継げ!!)
September 29, 2013 (2013-09-29)September 15, 2014 (Hulu)
Nash and Marin overlook Vector's past aggressions and unites the Barian leaders. Dumon reveals that Nash and Marin had lost all of their memories after ending up on Earth, prior to their return. Vector nearly panics, thinking that with Nash's memories back, Nash had returned to kill him, but Don Thousand tells Vector to calm down, telling him that Vector's blood was not on Nash's mind. In an effort to prove his loyalty, Nash gives Vector the permission to kill him if he sensed any hint of betrayal. Nash then gives each of the Barian Emperors new powers and tells Vector not to underestimate Yuma and Astral. Then, following Vector's advice, Nash decides that it is time for the Seven Barian Emperors to attack. Yuma takes Kite's place in the duel with Kite's remaining 1750 Life Points as Heartland reveals his true fly-like form, revealing that he had been reborn as a Barian. Yuma summons Utopia and manages to destroy Infection Buzz King, but Heartland summons several Infection Bug Tokens in its place, which he uses to destroy Utopia and deal damage to Yuma. However, Yuma summons Galaxy-Eyes Photon Dragon and fuses with Astral to create a new ZEXAL transformation, ZEXAL III, allowing him to summon Zexal Server - Banish Sage and equip it to Galaxy-Eyes. Yuma uses ZEXAL III's power of "Zexal Field" to counter Mr. Heartland's Barian Field. Banish Sage's effect allows Galaxy-Eyes to Banish all of the Bug Tokens and defeat Mr. Heartland, causing him to revert to his human form. Then, Fake Numbers 1, 2, 3, and 4 surround Mr. Heartland and burst into black flames, burning him alive, even as he begs Vector for mercy. Then, the flames briefly turn red and coalesces into the form of Don Thousand, whom Astral recognizes, before vanishing. After Mr. Heartland's defeat, all of the remaining Fake Numbers are destroyed as well. As Yuma learns of Flip's disappearance, Tori notices something awry with the large flow of energy coming from Barian World and alerts her friends/comrades present, who turn to view multiple bolts of red lightning and a pillar of light/energy, proof that Barian World was planning to unite Barian and Earth. Yuma states that there is only one thing to do, and says, "We gotta take down the Barians."
