Umiko, Flash

Flash Umiko (フラッシュ Furasshu Umiko) is a character in the Yu-Gi-Oh! SEVENS anime and a minor antagonist. She resembles Celestia Noodlina, Terra Kneadalina, and Prioria Sweetalina; she replaces the latter as an announcer for the Goha Rush Duel Team Battle Royal after her departure back to the past. In the King of Duels arc, she's revealed to have been hired by Otes to help him realize his plan to destroy Dueling altogether.

Design[edit]

Appearance[edit]

Full-body view of Umiko.

Umiko closely resembles Celestia Noodlina, Terra Kneadalina, and Prioria Sweetalina; 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 Celestia, Terra and Prioria, 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 Enterprises, Umiko wears a sand blue waist coat over a white collared shirt and a sand blue skirt, all over her fish costume.

Personality[edit]

While Umiko is working as a newscaster for Goha City, she's generally cheerful and chirpy just like Celestia, Terra and Prioria. She tends to make fish onomatopoeia and fish puns when she talks and is easily panicked or startled.

While she is working at the Goha Enterprises Main Office however, Umiko acts in completely the opposite manner; she is short-tempered, absent-minded and sloppy. She also briefly utters Terra's "magu" at one point. She makes constant misplays during her Rush Duel with Gavin Sogetsu and even was initially unable to activate her Duel Disk due to spilling sauce on it a day prior. Whereas Celestia and Prioria bonded with the Duelists they faced and Terra showed little animosity to Seatbastian, Umiko parts with Gavin, Rayne and Rino on poor terms. Umiko also discloses a desire for a dream to take over Goha Enterprises with her own business, though her inherent laziness hampers her.

When she is revealed alongside her other counterparts as being aligned with Otes, she retains her lazy personality, usually staying in either a half-asleep or apathetic state, in direct contrast to the more energetic demeanors set forth by the other girls.

Biography[edit]

Team Battle Royal[edit]

After Prioria Sweetalina 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 YugaNail with R and Team King Luke's Kings.[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 Kassidy, their bandmates Tyler Getz and Toombs entered the arena to support Roa, and Umiko told them off and asked them to leave. Tyler and Toombs 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 Gavin Sogetsu vs. Nail 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 Gavin's determination to take the direct attack from the 4000 ATK "Yggdrago the Sky Emperor" and by the eventual result of the Duel when Gavin 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 Enterprises 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 Nail's assistance, creating a stronger program that the Goha Enterprises 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]

Goha Employee[edit]

Umiko was eventually transferred to the General Affairs department of Goha Enterprises to oversee electrical appliances, a job she conducted with significantly less enthusiasm than her announcing duties, and she desired to take over Goha Enterprises herself with her own undersea online shopping business. At some point she found a "Fusion" and added it to her Deck. She met Gavin, Rayne and Rino while she was changing florescent bulbs, scowling when Gavin tried to congratulate her for her commentary work and dismissing his concerns she was changing the bulbs with old bulbs. Luke tasked Umiko with installing appliances for his new Luke Division, but Umiko carelessly connected them using octopus wiring, a technique she'd used across the Goha Enterprises Main Office, and crashed the power as a result. Gavin, Rayne and Rino confronted Umiko in her office over her laziness, and Umiko trying to brush them off (accidentally speaking with Terra Kneadalina's speech tic) led to Gavin challenging her to a Rush Duel to get her to change her ways. Before they began, Umiko had to get Gavin to clean her Duel Disk as she'd spilled food on it to the point of not working. Umiko began poorly, as she Summoned all the monsters in her hand and prevented herself from stopping Gavin's attack with "Bzzt Bzzt Reborn", something Rayne and Rino mocked her for. Umiko abruptly revealed her dream to them, then claimed she couldn't let them leave alive now they knew it and she Dueled better on her next turn, Fusion Summoning "Showering Infergyo" and almost defeating Gavin, while retaining a monster in her hand to Summon with her other "Bzzt Bzzt Reborn" to stop Gavin's attacks. However, Gavin Fusion Summoned "Yamiterasu the Divine Delayer" and used its effect to prevent Umiko from Special Summoning monsters in Attack Position, and Umiko forgot about the effect when she tried to stop his attack with "Bzzt Bzzt Reborn", a decision that cost her the Duel. Afterwards she went to a cliffside with Gavin, Rayne and Rino, admitting she needed to work harder to achieve her dream, but parting with them on bad terms after Rayne claimed the scales had fallen from her eyes and body. Umiko found the analogy disgusting and jumped into the ocean with a life preserver, swimming away angrily.[9]

King of Duels[edit]

Umiko was present with Celestia Noodlina, Terra Kneadalina, Prioria Sweetalina and Konvoy Sagawa at the Nanahoshi Insect Ninja Village when Hire Yureko brought Yuga Goha to them. They strapped him to a cross and introduced themselves, Yureko telling Yuga where he was. Otes then arrived to send a video message to Yuga Ohdo while informing Yuga Goha of his plans to destroy Dueling; Umiko, Celestia and Prioria held lightning panels for the filming.[10]

Umiko and her counterparts joined Otes in the Otes Robot, waiting beyond the lunar horizon for Yuga Ohdo and his friends to arrive and attempt to stop the lunar Drones from overloading the Goha Duel Server. They acted to throw meteors at the kids' shuttle, Umiko doing so as lazily as ever, but after the second the shuttle vanished. To their shock, the kids had commandeered the Super Rush Robot so Yuga could Rush Duel Otes.[11]

Deck[edit]

Umiko plays a WATER Thunder Deck focused on "Umi" and effect damage. Her monsters are based on sea creatures and electrical fittings. She also includes "Fusion"; her Fusion Monster "Showering Infergyo" can bolster the efficiency of her "Bzzt Bzzt Reborn" Trap Card.
