Mutsuba, Asana

Asana Mutsuba (むつアサナ Mutsuba Asana) is one of the seven main characters in the Yu-Gi-Oh! SEVENS anime. She is the heir to the Mutsuba Heavy Machinery company, which helped construct Goha City, and the president of Goha #6 Elementary's Heavy Cavalry Duel Club, to the extent that she has power over the entire school.

Asana is introduced as the main antagonist of the Goha #6 Elementary arc, seeking to resume production of Heavy Cavalry components by destroying Rush Dueling for Goha Enterprises.

Design[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Full-body view of Asana.

Asana is a slim, tanned girl with mauve eyes and grey neck-length hair. She dresses in a style based on equestrian riders, wearing a long red coat with a black inner layer and silver buttons, a white collared shirt with a yellow cravat and a blue stone, a black waistcoat, white riding pants, a brown belt at an angle, white gloves, and black heeled boots. While riding R6, she also wears a white hardhat with a slice in the brim, and white goggles with hexagonal lenses and a red strap.

Asana wears the Goha #6 Elementary uniform while she is tending to R6; a largely blue tracksuit with a white trim and the character for "6" emblazoned on the back in red, white elbow length gloves, a cream apron, and black boots. As The☆Princess Asana, she wears a white backless wedding dress with a white bow at the small of her back and ties her hair up with a gold tiara that is emblazoned with the character for "six" and that incorporates a veil. She also wears a red choker clasped with three god arrows set with a blue stone, and earrings in the same style.

Two years after the events of the series, Asana has grown her hair out to the length Tiger's was; conversely, Tiger has cut hers to a similar length to how Asana's hair was cut. Asana wears a hybrid of the Goha #8 Middle School boys' and girls' uniforms; she wears a long blue skirt and a black miltary gakuren jacket with her school number pinned on her right collar and her year pinned on her left collar.

As a young girl Asana was lighter skinned and wore a maroon vest over a white shirt with a black bowtie and white gloves. She also wore a yellow hardhat with her family's crest on it while riding R6.

Personality[edit]

Asana declares her intention to crush Rush Dueling, but when she and Yuga meet for the first time she is unfailingly polite to him despite knowing who he is. She is grateful to him when he fixes R6 for her and allows him to ride the digger with her, and she expresses interest in their eventual Duel. Asana even goes as far as to permit Yuga to address her without honorifics. However, she is angered by his casual indifference to her school's traditions and is not above punishing him for doing so. Later she is displeased by Yuga's friends investigating him behind his back and tries to prevent their actions, though she admits she had been doubting Yuga herself at the time and was also at fault.

Asana is incredibly prideful, sometimes to a fault; she refused to tell Tiadosia Kallister why she had left her while searching for Luke in their youth because she felt she had no right to and allowed their close friendship to turn into rivalry. As a student of Goha #6 Elementary, Asana is a staunch traditionalist, believing modifications to be a crime and seeing both Rush Dueling and the modified Drone Kaizo as things that should not exist. In the past she and her club have mercilessly imposed their will on other students of their school. However, when she Rush Duels Yuga for the first time she finds herself enjoying the experience, something that Yuga encourages while her fellow Heavy Cavalry Duel Club members try to remind her that she is meant to be opposing them. Ultimately, despite her enjoyment of Rush Dueling and wishing that she and Yuga had met under different circumstances, Asana still opposes him. Even when Asana comes to accept modification, she does so after she learned that her family had in fact done so in the past.

Asana loves riding and operating R6, feeling that she can forget everything when riding it and she is pleased when Yuga agrees with her. She is very attached to the digger, talking to it and treating it as if it were a horse; she asks if it is sulking after it breaks down, and asks its opinion as to whether they should let Yuga ride it. She later tells Yuga that R6 has "taken to him". However, this love of machinery does not extend to Goha Enterprises Drones, who she finds abhorrent for trying to mimic the language of humans, claiming that machines have their own beautiful language. Despite this claim, her dislike of Drones appears to stem from Goha Enterprises's Duel Disks outcompeting her family's Duel machines and even after she accepts the notion of modification, she continues to demonstrate distaste for Kaizo.

Voice/Mannerisms[edit]

In her youth, Asana spoke in the third person, using her own name as a personal pronoun, but she uses "watashi" in the present, while using "warera" when referring to herself and the Heavy Cavalry Duel Club. While formal, her speech is in the short form, akin to a commander or a general. She generally refers to people by their first names, but calls Yuga by his full name throughout the Goha #6 Elementary arc.

Biography[edit]

History[edit]

Asana was attended to by Galian Townsend in her childhood.[3] Asana was close friends with her great-grandfather, who rode R6 with her outside Goha City and told her of their family's company, Mutsuba Heavy Machinery, as well as how their family company's founder had been friends with the founder of Goha Enterprises, who they had created Duel Disks with that outcompeted the R0, Mutsuba style mobile Duel devices, which subsequently went missing.[1]

One day Asana's great-grandfather took her to meet Tiadosia Kallister. Asana was immediately impressed by Tiadosia's martial prowess and they became fast friends, nicknaming one another Asacchi and Harucchi. From that day on they spent every day together, even having their first Goha Duels with one another. One snowy day Tiadosia's younger brother Lucidien went missing, so Asana helped Tiadosia look for him. Asana suggested they split up, reassuring Tiadosia that they would find him.[4] She called her great-grandfather and asked him to bring R6 to help look for Lucidien, but instead of finding Lucidien, Asana and her great-grandfather found Schubel Quill and his pet pigeon Pidgetrap buried in the snow, Asana asking in concern if they were all right.[5] They then received word that Tiadosia had found Lucidien, so Asana and her great-grandfather took Schubel and Pidgetrap to the hospital due to their weakness. Tiadosia believed that Asana had gone home as soon as they split up and vowed revenge against her; Asana believed that she didn't deserve to make excuses as she hadn't told Tiadosia what had happened, and they became rivals; Tiadosia taking the name "Tiger" and insisting that Asana and her friends use that name.[4]

Mutsuba Heavy Machinery fell on hard times and was absorbed into the Goha Enterprises, which ceased production of Heavy Cavalry parts. Asana asked multiple times for the parts to be remanufactured, but to no avail.[6] Asana eventually inherited R6 and she rose to become the president of the Heavy Cavalry Duel Club. At some point before the events of the series, Asana and the Heavy Cavalry Duel Club challenged the Goha #6 Elementary Student Council to Duels. They defeated all of them, including then-current president Janko Entant, and removed them from the Council.[7]

Birth of Rush Duels[edit]

While they were excavating at an old building, Asana, Galian, and Schubel watched a Rush Duel between Yuga Ohdo and Roa Kassidy, and witnessed the appearance of Otes during the Duel.[8]

Maximum[edit]

After the second Rush Duel between Yuga and Nail Saionji and the failure of Nail's plan to eliminate Rush Dueling, Asana vowed that she, Galian and Schubel would utterly crush Rush Dueling.[9] She made a deal with the Goha President to have the parts for Heavy Cavalry remanufactured if they succeeded.[6]

Goha #6 Elementary[edit]

Asana planned to have Yuga Ohdo and his friends transfer to Goha #6 Elementary, which would allow her to prevent them from Rush Dueling under her supervision, while also weeding out the Dark Rush Duel Tournament that was being held by rebellious students from Goha #6 Elementary, and she had Schubel send Yuga's friend Luke an invitation to the tournament.[1][3][10] Aware that Yuga and Nail had created the powerful Maximum Monsters that they used in their Duel from Duel ID cards, Asana planned to use the ID cards in the discarded Duel Disks of the Mutsuba Heavy Machinery mine to create her own, though finding them proved to be a difficult prospect as the cards had decayed over the time they had buried. Eventually Asana was able to rewrite three ID cards into her own Maximum Monster; "Wyrm Excavator the Heavy Cavalry Draco".[11]

Asana meets Yuga Ohdo.

Asana was riding R6 in a forest near the Rush Duel Training Camp when it broke down. As she was trying to determine why her digger was sulking, Yuga saw her with the digger and praised it, asking to take a look at it with her permission. Yuga determined that a loose circuit was to blame and reconnected it, fixing R6. Asana thanked Yuga and introduced herself, and Yuga asked if he could ride R6. Although she was surprised by his question, Asana agreed to teach him to operate R6 after her digger responded in the affirmative, and she was quite surprised when Yuga proved able at operating R6, riding with him until the evening. As they parted ways, Yuga finally remembered to introduce himself, though Asana reassured him that she knew he was the creator of Rush Dueling. Yuga challenged her to a Duel, but Asana received a call over her radio asking for a response, preventing her from accepting Yuga's challenge, and she bid Yuga goodbye until they met again. Later that night, Asana, Galian and Schubel returned to the Rush Duel Training Camp to spy on Yuga and his friends, Asana expressing her anticipation for her and Yuga's eventual Duel.[12]

Asana and the Heavy Cavalry Duel Club tracked down the Dark Rush Duel Tournament to the old Goha #6 Elementary campus, catching Yuga, Luke, Romin Kassidy, Gavin Sogetsu and Janko in the act. She and Yuga greeted one another again and Asana told Yuga that R6 was happy to see him as well, but nevertheless had the old campus demolished and her fellow #6 Elementary students escorted away, explaining her dislike of Goha Enterprises Drones and modifications to Yuga and his friends (much to the anger of Yuga's modified Drone Kaizo and the shock of their advisor, massage Drone Seatbastian). Yuga then challenged Asana to a Rush Duel to allow the students of Goha 6th to Duel freely, and Asana accepted his challenge, as per her school's tradition, planning to have Yuga transfer to Goha #6 Elementary if he lost, but not divulging this to him. Although Yuga started with three strong monsters, Asana quickly became accustomed to Rush Dueling and brought out "Constructor Wyrm Buildragon" before empowering her Wyrm monsters with her "Peaks of Blisstopia" Field Spell Card, easily destroying all of Yuga's monsters. To her shock, Asana found the Rush Duel interesting, necessitating Galian and Schubel to remind her of her purpose, and Yuga was also enjoying the Duel despite his disadvantage. He made a significant comeback with three more powerful monsters, destroying all of Asana's, including "Buildragon" with "Sevens Road Magician" and once again intriguing Asana. But on her next turn she drew all three components of "Wyrm Excavator the Heavy Cavalry Draco" and admitted she wished she and Yuga had met under different circumstances before Maximum Summoning it and destroying her own Field Spell to draw more cards and increase the ATK of "Wurm Excavator", allowing her to defeat Yuga. Asana then told Yuga that he and his friends would have to transfer to Goha #6 Elementary as he had lost, retreating to the cliff where she had spent time with her grandfather that evening to look out over Goha City.[1] Although she believed it was necessary, she regretted having such an advantage over Yuga in their Duel.[11]

On Yuga's first day of being transferred to Goha #6 Elementary, Asana called the Goha President to inform them of her success, but to her shock the President called her naïve for thinking that mere surveillance would be enough to crush Rush Dueling and warned her that she had not fulfilled her contract with Goha Enterprises. Though shocked by his criticism, Asana vowed that she would crush Rush Dueling. Over the course of the day the Heavy Cavalry Duel Club detected suspicious devices across the Goha 6th campus, which Asana deduced were likely Yuga's doing, and she confronted him over his actions after Gavin defeated Galian in a Rush Duel. Yuga claimed he and Kaizo had only been trying to help the students who had trouble with the road to school, but Asana was incensed by his disrespect of their traditions and revoked the terms of Gavin's Duel with Galian, which would have allowed Yuga and his friends to return to Goha #7 Elementary, and instead had them sent to the Abandoned Dorm.[3] Asana decided that in order to crush Rush Dueling, she would have to wager Heavy Cavalry Dueling against it in another Duel with Yuga, informing Schubel of this and reassuring him that she was prepared for the consequences in the event that she lost. To her shock, she was informed that Yuga and his friends had escaped the Abandoned Dorm and fled into the mine it contained.[13] Asana was later informed that Caterpillio Elephantis had tried to dismantle Yuga's Road Laboratory, though he had regretted his reckless actions. She then attended to R6, finding a damaged panel on it and "bandaging" it with duct tape, promising to replace it when she could.[14]

Yuga and his friends were found in the Heavy Cavalry Colosseum by Schubel and Galian, though they failed to prevent them from reaching the mine. Realizing that Yuga intended to find his own Maximum Monsters and deducing that he would turn to Nail's "Yggdrago the Sky Emperor", Asana hurried there with Galian, Schubel, Pidgetrap, Caterpillio and six Heavy Cavalry students. She arrived just as Yuga deduced how Asana created "Wyrm Excavator" and congratulated his deductions, shaking off Galian and Schubel's efforts to keep her quiet. She explained how fragile the ID cards in the Duel Disks were and challenged Yuga to another Rush Duel, agreeing to honor her original promise if he won, but warning him that Rush Dueling would be banned in Goha Elementary schools if she won, a challenge Yuga accepted. Yuga began cautiously with five Set cards, much to Asana's interest, and at his urging she Maximum Summoned "Wyrm Excavator" on her first turn and flipped his face-down "Straynge Cat" into Attack Position, then powered-up "Wyrm Excavator" enough to defeat Yuga with one attack, though he was able to avoid the damage with a Trap Card. Noting that Yuga wouldn't have intended to defeat her Maximum with just Spell and Trap Cards, she urged him to Maximum Summon "Yggdrago", but to her shock, Yuga revealed he didn't have it in his Deck, having decided not to use it, much to Asana's disappointment. To her surprise, Yuga revealed that he still intended to use a Maximum, as he and Tracker had uncovered three Duel ID cards that would be resilient enough to be rewritten into his Maximum, and to Asana's joy Yuga was able to draw and Maximum Summon "Supreme Machine Magnum Overlord". Yuga used both of the effects of "Magnum Overlord" to power it up, but Asana was able to weaken it enough with her "Constructor Ambush" Trap that it tied with "Wyrm Excavator". To her shock, both sets of Maximum cards began to disintegrate due to the clash between the monsters, with Gavin ruling that the loser would take the ATK of the other Maximum Monster as damage.[11] As their Maximums disintegrated, Asana encouraged "Wyrm Excavator" and admitted to Yuga that this was the most fun she'd ever had in a Duel. Eventually the two Maximums disintegrated at the same time, allowing the Duel to continue, and Asana thanked "Wyrm Excavator" for its efforts. She pushed Yuga into a corner with "Buildragon", but as she attacked, R6 continued to deteriorate, and Asana admitted her motive to Yuga for eliminating Rush Dueling. Yuga was able to survive Asana's attacks, and her friends were able to briefly stabilize R6, but Yuga brought out a new ace monster, "Steel Mech Lord Mirror Innovator", which could gain ATK depending on the Levels of the monsters that shared its Type in Yuga's Graveyard. Although the cards that made up the Machine "Magnum Overlord" had been destroyed, Asana suspected that Yuga had another method to strengthen it and prevented Machine monsters from attacking with her "Constructor Blockade", but Yuga changed the Type of "Steel Mech Lord Mirror Innovator" to Spellcaster and combined it with "Road Magic - Uplifter", allowing it to gain enough ATK to destroy "Buildragon". As Yuga launched the attack, R6 continued to break down and the Heavy Cavalry Duel Club united to keep it together until the attack struck, with Asana declaring glory to the Heavy Cavalry Duel Club as her LP was depleted.[6]

R6 was finally destroyed by the attack, though Asana was protected from the explosion by her friends and Asana thanked her Heavy Cavalry for fighting alongside her to the end, lamenting that she couldn't save it. As she admitted Yuga's victory, Yuga struck a nearby wall and uncovered a room containing R0, explaining that he had learned about it in the Goha #6 Elementary library and had hoped to find it to make Asana smile. Touched by his admission, Asana was further shocked when she learned that R0 had been modified over the course of its creation and Yuga explained that one would make mistakes while making something and modify it until they got it right, which he likened to Rush Dueling as well. Hearing this, Asana finally accepted the notion of modification and removed the ban on Rush Dueling at Goha #6 Elementary, while also allowing Yuga to repair R6, though she still didn't like Kaizo.[6]

Team Battle Royal[edit]

Luke called Asana to ask permission to dig in her mine, so she, Galian and Schubel to the Abandoned Dorm to meet with Luke and Tracker. Luke told them about the Goha Rush Duel Team Battle Royal, which Asana found interesting, but when Luke admitted that Yuga wasn't participating she noted that it was like him, and suggested that Luke and Yuga were not as close as Luke thought after Luke expressed confusion over Yuga's decision. To their surprise, when they entered the mine they found it covered in lights that made it look like outer space, and encountered Goha #5 Elementary's Duelstronauts, who claimed to be looking for Maximum Monsters after seeing Asana create "Wyrm Excavator the Heavy Cavalry Draco". Their leader, Booster Page, challenged Asana to a Rush Duel for the right to Duel in the mine, and Asana agreed on the condition Booster Duel Luke instead, confiding to Galian and Schubel that she was curious as to whether Luke would find himself in the Duel. Booster gave Luke some trouble, but Luke was eventually able to defeat him. After the Duel, Romin and Gavin arrived, and they collectively came to the realization that Yuga had refused to enter the tournament because he didn't want to deprive any of his friends the opportunity to do so, which had been Asana's theory as well. Asana gave Luke permission to excavate in the mine, with Luke telling the Duelstronauts they could join them.[15]

Although the excavation turned up no Maximum Monsters, Asana was able to find a single Duel ID card and kept it for Yuga.[16] She, Galian and Schubel were planning to represent the Heavy Cavalry Duel Club in the Goha Rush Duel Team Battle Royal, but Asana called in sick on the day of the registration and urged them to compete, suggesting they substitute Pidgetrap for her.[8] She also gave Galian the Duel ID card that she had found in her mine to give to Yuga, having intended to give it to him in person.[16] In truth, Asana and Caterpillio went to investigate the shortage of Duel ID cards from her mine, and they observed Goha 66 excavating there with a crew of Goha Enterprises Drones.[8] The situation eventually reached the point that Caterpillio had to call Galian, Schubel and Pidgetrap for reinforcements.[17] Asana and Caterpillio waited for Galian, Schubel and Caterpillio outside the Abandoned Dorm, where the mineshaft to Maximum Mountain had been forced open. Assuring them that she was happy they'd come despite her deception, they ventured into the mine to find Goha 66 excavating there. Asana confronted him over his purpose, but after revealing the rest of the Goha 66 he claimed that elementary schoolers would never understand what salarymen thought and insulted them and their Heavy Cavalry. To Asana's surprise, Tiger then arrived to assist them against Goha 66, almost blowing Asana away after Asana called her by her childhood nickname. Asana insisted that this wasn't Tiger's business, though Tiger claimed that she'd only intervened because she found the situation interesting.[18]

Tiger, Galian, Caterpillio and Pidgetrap defeated all the members of Goha 66, but then Tiger challenged Asana to a Duel. Before they could clash, Luke, Romin, Gavin, Saburamen, Sushiko Maki and Briscoe arrived with a captured Kaizo, who had joined Goha 66 and Luke used Kaizo's confession switch to force him to reveal Goha 66's plan; to take over Goha Enterprises and the Dueling world by gaining control of the main Dueling server buried beneath Maximum Mountain.[19] Asana was amused to learn that Luke was actually Lucidien, Tiadosia's brother, having not recognized him from their childhood, and after Tiger yelled everyone who interrupted them into submission, Asana accepted her challenge. Asana brought out "Constructor Wyrm Buildragon" to oppose Tiger's "Ensembullfighter the Music Fiend", but Tiger changed "Ensembullfighter" to Defense Position and increased its DEF to fend off the attack of "Buildragon". On her next turn, Tiger changed "Buildragon" into Defense Position and attempted to lock Asana down with "Ensembullfighter" while increasing the ATK of "Digisoon the Music Fiend" with "Straight Pierce", intending to defeat Asana that turn, but Asana was able to take advantage of the timing of the effect of "Ensembullfighter" to revive "Buildragon" once "Digisoon" had destroyed it, preventing "Ensembullfighter" from defeating her. On her next turn, Asana activated her "Snows of Blisstopia" Field Spell, recalling her friendship with Tiger as children, though Tiger again accused Asana of abandoning her to search for Luke. Asana brought out two "Constructor Demolition Wyrm Dracrush", but Tiger increased the ATK of her monsters with her "Music Princess Secret Art - Triple Tiger" past Asana's, vowing that she would have her apologize. Schubel then interrupted the Duel and despite Asana's protests he told her how Asana had found him and Pidgetrap in the snow after splitting up with her. Asana admitted to Tiger that she felt she didn't deserve to make excuses as she hadn't told her what she'd done and she apologized to Tiger. Tiger told Asana she could call her Harucchi again and admitted that her anger had subsided, though they continued their Duel as they were still rivals. Asana used her "Constructor Art - Buildestruction" to increase the ATK of her "Dracrushes" and weaken Tiger's monsters, allowing her to defeat her. After the Duel Asana helped Tiger up and told her it was a fun Duel, though Tiger had to yell Luke away for calling her Harucchi, revealing the supposed main server that Goha 66 had been looking for. However, Kaizo revealed that it was too small to be the main Dueling server.[4]

Asana, Tiger, Galian, Schubel, Pidgetrap and Caterpillio all attended the finals of the Goha Rush Duel Team Battle Royal the next day, watching Romin's victory against Roa and Gavin's Duel against Nail, where Asana was shocked by his new "Gakuting" persona. Faced with "Yggdrago the Sky Emperor", Gavin eventually returned to his normal persona and forced a DRAW, leaving Yuga and Luke to have a final Duel.[20][21]

Asana watched Yuga and Luke's Duel, and was surprised by Yuga's nervous reactions on his first turn. After he Summoned "Amazing Dealer" and only brought out "Sevens Road Magician" for the turn, she concluded that he had drawn a bad hand and noted he would have been doomed if he hadn't drawn "Amazing Dealer" to fix his hand up. She joined Roa and Nail for Yuga's summoning chant for "Hyper Engine Vast Vulcan", the Maximum Monster Yuga had made from the ID card she'd given him. To Asana's shock, the Solid Vision images of the monsters began to glitch, and she learned from the Duelstronauts that the Goha Duel Server was actually on the moon and the portion that contained the data for Rush Duels, the Super Rush Robot, was being eroded. Asana realized that it was a concentrated effort to destroy Rush Dueling and that the entire tournament had contributed to it.[22] Asana deduced that Otes was likely responsible and ordered Galian, Schubel, Pidgetrap and Caterpillio to find where he was operating from. They succeeded in destroying The Relic, but the uninstallation process continued regardless, and both Yuga and Luke decided to continue their Rush Duel despite knowing it would erase the format, something Asana had expected Yuga to do. Luke destroyed Yuga's Maximum, but Yuga brought out "Thunderbold the Lightningfire Deity" and Asana noted he'd had a new monster ready. After Yuga endured all of Luke's attacks and returned his monsters to his hand, Asana believed Yuga had won the Rush Duel, but Luke was able to re-Summon "Multistrike Dragon Dragias" and defeat Yuga, winning the tournament. Yuga was incredibly frustrated by his loss, throwing a brief tantrum, something Asana noted was a rare sight from Yuga. Afterwards the Rush Duel program on the surface of the moon was destroyed, but Yuga had immediately reinstalled Rush Dueling and had the Super Rush Robot reconstructed out of space debris by Nail, making it a far stronger program. Asana and her friends then watched Luke's coronation.[23]

Goha 6 Siblings[edit]

Following his Rush Duel with Luke, Yuga worried that his "Hyper Engine Vast Vulcan" cards were reaching their limit and asked Asana to repair them.[24] Galian, Pidgetrap and Caterpillio all offered their Duel ID cards to Asana for her to recreate "Wyrm Excavator the Heavy Cavalry Draco", but Asana refused their offer and instead asked them to lend her their ace monsters.[25]

The true Goha Presidents, the Goha Siblings, returned to Earth and challenged Yuga to Rush Duels with the Super Rush Robot held hostage by Forced Gymnastics Armaments if he could not defeat all six of them, with the condition that he become a Goha employee if he and his friends lost six times.[26] After Luke, wearing a draconian helmet and calling himself "The☆Lukeman" defeated Yuo Goha, Yuo engineered the eviction of the last of his other sibling, leaving him the sole Goha President.[27] Luke later joined Yuo, claiming to be the sixth Goha Sibling, and when he returned home he adopted the persona of The☆Lukeman again and defeated Tiger.[28]

As a result of her loss Tiger went to train at Maximum Mountain, and Asana called Yuga, Romin, Gavin and Swirly to meet with her to stop Tiger's training. After taking Yuga with her on the back of R6, they found Tiger stumbling out of a tiger-shaped outcrop she had carved in exhaustion, and Asana had Galian lift her to catch Tiger with GG03 after Tiger fell. Tiger soon woke and told Asana what Luke had done, and Asana had to hold her down to prevent her overexerting herself when the Goha Siblings' ship, Super Mobile Fortress Sixross, arrived and Yuo declared the day's match. Asana asked Yuga if she could accept the Duel after seeing Tiger crying, but was shocked when Yuo revealed her opponent to be Nail, who claimed that though he was neutral, he had to follow the orders of the Goha President. Nail Maximum Summoned "Yggdrago the Sky Emperor" on his first turn and Asana opposed it with "Constructor Wyrm Buildragon", using her new strategy with her friends' aces to power up "Buildragon" with "Bucket-wheel Force" and telling Nail that her encounter with Yuga had changed her. To her shock, Nail returned "Yggdrago" to his hand with "Emergency Return", a move Yuga had used against him during their Rush Duel, and he told her Yuga had changed him as well. He Maximum Summoned "Yggdrago" again, and Asana defended with her friends' aces, but after depleting the Maximum effects of "Yggdrago", Nail Tributed "Yggdrago" and returned it to his hand with "Viskam Nanotron", allowing him to reuse its effects and destroy Asana's last monster. Fortunately Asana was once again able to make use of her friends' monsters to reduce the ATK of "Yggdrago" enough to survive. Rejecting Seatbastian's claim she had tainted her Deck by adding her friends' monsters to it, Asana brought out "Constructor Heavenly Wyrm Gantry Dragon" and used its effect to revive "Buildragon", then used the effect of "Buildragon" to revive "Constructor Demolition Wyrm Dracrush" before weakening "Yggdrago" and powering up "Dracrush". To her surprise Nail used "Pair Collision" to prevent the destruction of "Yggdrago" even though he would still lose, Asana destroying "Yggdrago" in a double KO with "Gantry Dragon" and defeating him with "Buildragon".[25]

After the Duel Asana helped Tiger stand and Nail resigned from Goha Enterprises and left with Seatbastian. With the score between Yuga and the Goha Siblings tied at 5-5, Yuga challenged The☆Lukeman to a final Duel.[25] As everyone else worried over the chance Yuga could lose, Asana told them to calm down, pointing out no-one could win with such an attitude. However she was shocked when Yuga adopted the persona of "Majin Yuga" during the Duel and he and The☆Lukeman both donned costumes for the Duel. The other Goha Siblings then arrived to explain the events, revealing that The☆Lukeman had created the 'Fusion" Spell Card from program cards in Goha satellites Nail had destroyed and that The☆Lukeman himself was an electronic lifeform created when Tiger struck a fax machine she had been trying to send Luke's The☆Lukeman through. While they were talking, The☆Lukeman almost defeated Yuga with his Fusion Monster, "Superstrike Dragon Dragiastar F", but to Asana's relief Yuga was able to survive. Asana learned Yuga was trying to help The☆Lukeman in his goal of fighting evil with Luke, something she and Tiger agreed was like Yuga. To Asana's surprise Yuga took on a new costume, The☆Yugaman, and the Goha Siblings and Proprietress provided costumes for everyone else, prompting Asana to blush at the notion.[29] Asana donned a wedding dress, calling herself The☆Princess Asana, and she joined Yuga's friends in convincing The☆Lukeman they weren't his enemies, while the Goha Siblings disguised themselves as aliens that took The☆Beauty Romin hostage, Asana feigning outrage with The☆Jushin Tiger. Yuga was able to destroy "Dragiastar F", but The☆Lukeman Fusion Summoned "Full Moon Dragon Umbrlancer F" and revived "Dragiastar F", almost defeating Yuga. Yuga tried to comeback with "Sevens Road Magician" on his next turn, but The☆Lukeman returned the monsters in his Graveyard to his Deck to prevent him using the effect of "Sevens Road", so Yuga tried to draw another card with "1/Infinity", which would damage him enough to lose if he and The☆Lukeman didn't draw the same card. The☆Lukeman drew "Fusion", which Yuga didn't have, but to Asana's horror a meteor entered the atmosphere and plunged towards Yuga. As she worried for his safety, Yuga blocked the meteor with his Duel Disk, which was revealed to be the remains of a satellite containing a "Fusion" card, which was added to his Deck and he successfully drew it, Fusion Summoning "Sevens Paladin the Magical Knight", which gained ATK for Attributes in both Graveyards and allowed Yuga to defeat The☆Lukeman. Yuo tried to destroy the Super Rush Robot in Sixross after the Duel, but the ship was struck by a falling iron maiden containing Kaizo, which detonated the Prima Guitarna Curry Romin had left aboard Sixross and crashed it. Yuo released the final armament on the robot, a process Asana and Tiger watched on Asana's phone. After The☆Lukeman released Luke and left for outer space, Yuga allowed Yuo to retain his position under the condition he return the other Goha Siblings to their positions, offering to become a Goha employee as the Goha Siblings had initially tried to force him to.[30]

Goha Employee[edit]

At some point Asana found a "Fusion" card and added it to her Deck. Asana learned that Yuga might be the sixth of the Goha Siblings, a discovery that she found confronting given her dislike of Goha Enterprises. She decided to ask him about the matter and drove R6 to the Road Laboratory alone, wrestling with the thought Yuga might be a Goha President. She met Gavin, Romin, Mimi and Roa on the way, Roa calling her "pretty baby" in English, so Asana conveyed R6's request for a greeting to him and then R6's admonishing Roa for calling them both "pretty baby". After Romin asked her if she was going to the Road Laboratory and Asana tried to deny it, Roa suggested she accompany them to Yuga's house, though Asana was shocked to learn they intended to investigate Yuga if he wasn't there. Unwilling to let them betray Yuga's trust, she challenged them to a Rush Duel, and Roa accepted after Romin prodded him towards the Duel. After Roa damaged her LP on the first turn, Asana Fusion Summoned "Infinidream Constructor Wyrm Buildrim" and destroyed Roa's monsters with its effect, then powered it up with "Bucket-wheel Force" for a One Turn Kill, though Roa survived by increasing his LP. Roa Tribute Summoned "Royal Rebel's Doom Metal", and Asana flipped it face-down with "Buried Shield", a move Roa complimented her on, stating it was the right choice as her opposition of them investigating Yuga was. He claimed that Asana was no different from them in wanting to know if Yuga was a Goha Sibling, having noticed her clubmates' absence, and suggested the right choice wasn't always the best one, Tribute Summoning "Royal Rebel's Hard Rock" and using its effect to damage Asana with the difference in their monsters' ATK, then gaining the ATK of "Buildrim" and destroying it, defeating her. Asana agreed not to stop them, but warned them they wouldn't be able to regain Yuga's trust if they lost it before leaving on R6. To her shock she found Romin wearing different clothes buying goods from a market, and she realized the Romin she'd seen with Gavin, Roa and Mimi had been an imposter. She quickly brought Romin (and all her packages) to the neighbourhood the imposter had led them to, finding them surrounded by seven people impersonating Yuga and warning them they weren't the real Yuga. The imposters revealed themselves to be Goha #5 Elementary's Dueling Insects Club, their leader Nanaho Nanahoshi having disguised herself as Romin, and after Asana explained where she'd found Romin, Nanaho claimed to have been doing reconnaissance and mocked Asana, Gavin, Roa and Mimi for being so easily manipulated into distrusting Yuga. She revealed the real Yuga was with Luke and Swirly, trying to help the latter after he began acting strangely, and withdrew, claiming her plans would become even more interesting. Afterwards Roa, Gavin and Mimi apologized to Asana, and Asana accepted Roa's handshake, apologizing as well and admitting she'd doubted Yuga herself.[31]

Deck[edit]

Constructor[edit]

Asana uses a Constructor Deck made up of EARTH Wyrm monsters. She generally focuses on a straightforward beatdown strategy through using her Field Spell Cards to either give her Wyrm monsters extremely high ATK or Tribute Summon them for a single Tribute to save on resources, while using the effect of "Constructor Wyrm Buildragon" to replenish her monsters while she controls her Field Spell.

To combat Yuga Ohdo, Asana also includes a Maximum Monster in her Deck: "Wyrm Excavator the Heavy Cavalry Draco", which turns her previous strategy on its head; by destroying her own Field Spell, she can draw two extra cards and increase the ATK of "Wyrm Excavator", though she can also use this effect to destroy her opponent's cards, at the cost of drawing only one card.

Pride of the Heavy Cavalry Style[edit]

Some time before her Duel with Nail Saionji, Asana is offered by her Heavy Cavalry Duel Club to rewrite their individual Duel ID cards into "Wurm Excavator". Asana, however, chooses to incorporate their ace monsters into her Deck instead, thus placing more emphasis on cards that support Level 7 and higher monsters. When Seatbastian states that adding non-Wyrm monsters taints her Deck, and that abandoning her Duel style is like abandoning her pride, she states she would gladly throw away her Duel style for the sake of her comrades.
