After watching episode 15 I really felt like comparing these two scenes. Let’s have a look at the development of Pendulum Summon so far:
In the first episode, Yuya discovers Pendulum Summon; we still don’t know how it happened, but this is irrelevant right now. What we know: until recently, he was the only one to possess the cards. Yuya became famous for these, and it made him feel special, like a “chosen one” (he’s the protagonist after all).
Because of that, seeing that Reiji now also owns Pendulum cards made him really desperate. And it made us feel sorry for Yuya.
But on the other side, we have Shingo’s point of view:
"The fact that only you possess it is unfair!"
Why should Yuya be the only one to be able to Pendulum Summon? Which would give him a massive advantage?
Either way, it is nice to see that Yuya was able to overcome his despair. And despite being “blessed” with the Pendulum cards, he decided to work for his goal of being a pro himself now.
Maybe we’ll see Pendulum Summon become usual in the world of dueling. Yuya has to cope with that, but he’ll always be the first one to have discovered it.
So Mio used to be a Makai Priestess named Yuna before getting amnesia; now everything makes sense.
IM GOING TO CRY
That’s your body you pushed away, though.
