Umiko, Flash

Flash Umiko (フラッシュ Furasshu Umiko) is a character in the Yu-Gi-Oh! SEVENS anime. She resembles Noodle Sorako, Finger Chikako, and Sweets Kakoko; she replaces the latter as an announcer for the Goha Rush Duel Team Battle Royal after her departure back to the past.

Design[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Full-body view of Umiko.

Umiko closely resembles Noodle Sorako, Finger Chikako, and Sweets Kakoko; she is also a petite young girl with a very pale yellowish complexion, blond hair, and aqua eyes with blue pupils and yellow fish-shaped highlights.

In contrast to Sorako, Chikako and Kakoko, whose outfits all retained a central core they were capable of withdrawing into and grey gloves and stockings with ornaments attached suiting their profession, Umiko dresses very differently, with only superficial similarities. She wears a diver's outfit based on a footballfish; a blue suit with a white belly and yellow fins at her ears, hips and on the suit's tail, with a pink collar and visor rim and a lightbulb sign on her chest, a blue lamp attached her her head like that of a footballfish, long blue gloves with white-webbed hands and yellow fins at the wrists, and blue stockings with yellow fins covering her feet.[1] While working in the Sixth General Affairs Division of the General Affairs Department at the Goha Corporation, Umiko wears a sand blue waist coat over a white collared shirt and a sand blue skirt, all over her fish costume.

Personality[edit]

Like Sorako, Chikako and Kakoko, Umiko is generally cheerful and chirpy. She tends to make fish onomatopoeia and fish puns when she talks and is easily panicked or startled, but briefly utters Chikako's "magu" at one point.

While she is working at the Goha Corporation Main Office however, Umiko acts in completely the opposite manner; she is short-tempered, absent-minded and sloppy. She makes constant misplays during her Rush Duel with Gakuto Sogetsu and even was initially unable to activate her Duel Disk due to spilling sauce on it a day prior. Whereas Sorako and Kakoko bonded with the Duelists they faced and Chikako showed little animosity to Sebastian, Umiko parts with Gakuto and the Nanahoshi twins on poor terms. Umiko also discloses a desire for a dream to take over the Goha Corporation with her own business, though her inherent laziness hampers her.

Biography[edit]

Team Battle Royal[edit]

After Sweets Kakoko returned to the past on the second day of the Goha Rush Duel Team Battle Royal, Umiko took over the duties of announcing the tournament.[2] At the end of the second day Umiko tallied up the total points of the top two teams; Team YugaNeiru with R and Team Lukeking Lukekings.[3]

Umiko served as announcer on the day of the finals, revealing the rewards of the tournament and explaining how the winner would be chosen. During the first Rush Duel between Romin and Roa Kirishima, their bandmates Getta Taira and Ushiro Omaeno entered the arena to support Roa, and Umiko told them off and asked them to leave. Getta and Ushiro promptly intimidated Umiko as they claimed they were RoaRomin members, and a spooked Umiko allowed them to stay as she fled into the air on her hovering platform. Romin won the Duel, and an excited Umiko announced the next Duel would take place in the following episode.[4] The next Duel was Gakuto Sogetsu vs. Neiru Saionji, but the power went out during the Duel, much to Umiko's shock and she promised the crowd they would fix the problem. After the power resumed, Umiko apologized to her audience. She was shocked by Gakuto's determination to take the direct attack from the 4000 ATK "Yggdrago the Heavenly Emperor Dragon Tree" and by the eventual result of the Duel when Gakuto was able to end it in a DRAW, leaving Yuga Ohdo and Luke to Duel in the final match.[5]

Umiko commentated during Yuga and Luke's Rush Duel and witnessed the hacking and revelation of the Goha Duel Server on the moon, as well as the erosion of the Rush Duel Program contained within by Goha Corporation Drones.[6] She continued to announce as Yuga and Luke resumed their Rush Duel despite knowing it would confirm the uninstallation of Rush Dueling. Luke eventually won the Duel, and Rush Dueling was uninstalled, but Yuga was able to reinstall Rush Dueling in the Super Rush Robot with Neiru's assistance, creating a stronger program that the Goha Corporation Drones couldn't easily destroy. Afterwards, Luke was crowned King of Duels.[7]

Goha 6 Siblings[edit]

Umiko continued to serve as a newscaster for Goha City following the Goha Rush Duel Team Battle Royal, announcing that the story of the Super Rush Robot had grabbed global attention.[8]

Deck[edit]

Umiko plays a WATER Thunder Deck focused on "Umi" and effect damage. She also includes "Fusion"; her Fusion Monster "Showering Infernofish" can bolster the efficiency of her "Bzzt Bzzt Reborn" Trap Card.
