"A Date With Fate: Part 1", known as "The Fortunetelling Girl - Mieru Hochun" in the Japanese version, is the twenty-second episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V anime.

Yuya challenges the divination girl Aura Sentia to a Duel, as his third one to earn the qualifications for the Junior Arc League Championship. Even at the beginning, Yuya is already played around with by Aura, who uses Flip Summon monsters. Aura even correctly predicts that Yuya "cannot see what is in front of him" and launches a brutal assault with her pride-and-joy Ritual Monster, causing Yuya to be unable to focus. Also, Aura makes an inauspicious divination for Yuya...
Featured Duel: Yuya Sakaki vs. Aura Sentia
At the start of the Duel, the Field Spell Card "Fortuneterror" is activated, as per the rules of an Action Duel. It will allow the players to use Action Cards, but they may only have one in their hand at a time.
Turn 2: Yuya
Yuya draws "Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon". Yuya's hand contains "Odd-Eyes", "Performapal Elephammer", "Performapal Springoose", "Performapal Kaleidoscorp", "Performapal Partnaga", and "Stargazer Magician". Yuya passes.
Turn 3: Aura
Aura Flip Summons "Prediction Princess Coinorma" (800/1400) and activates its Flip Effect, Seting a Level 4 or lower Flip monster from her hand, Deck or Graveyard. She Sets one from her Deck. "Coinorma" attacks Yuya directly. Yuya finds the Action Card "Lousy Luck", which activates and inflicts 800 damage to him (Yuya 4000 → 3200). The attack continues (Yuya 3200 → 2400). Aura Tributes "Coinorma" to Tribute Set a monster. Aura Sets a card.
Turn 4: Yuya
Yuya draws "Performapal Bowhopper". Yuya Normal Summons "Performapal Bowhopper" (1500/1000). "Bowhopper" attacks Aura's Set monster. As Aura controls two or more face-down Defense Position monsters, Aura activates her Set Trap Card "Black Cat-astrophe", ending the Battle Phase.
Turn 5: Aura
Aura Flip Summons "Prediction Princess Arrowsylph" (1000/1400) and activates its Flip Effect, adding a Ritual Spell Card from her Deck or Graveyard to her hand. She adds "Prediction Ritual" from her Deck. Aura Flip Summons "Prediction Princess Crystaldine" (1400/2200) and activates its Flip Effect, adding a Ritual Monster from her Deck or Graveyard to her hand. She adds "Prediction Princess Tarotrei" from her Deck. Aura activates "Prediction Ritual", Tributing the Level 4 "Arrowsylph" and the Level 5 "Crystaldine" to Ritual Summon the Level 9 "Prediction Princess Tarotrei" in Attack Position (2700/1200). "Tarotrei" attacks and destroys "Bowhopper" (Yuya 2400 → 1300). Aura Sets a monster.
Turn 6: Yuya
Yuya draws "Timegazer Magician". Yuya activates "Stargazer Magician" ( 1) and "Timegazer Magician" ( 8) in his Pendulum Zones. Yuya Pendulum Summons the Level 7 "Odd-Eyes Pendulum Dragon" (2500/2000) and the Level 6 "Performapal Elephammer" (2600/1800) from his hand in Attack Position and the Level 6 "Performapal Kaleidoscorp" (100/2300), the Level 5 "Performapal Partnaga" (500/2100) and the Level 5 "Performapal Springoose" (1100/2400) from his hand in Defense Position. As "Partnaga" was Normal or Special Summoned, Yuya activates its effect, targeting a monster he controls and increasing its ATK by 300 for each "Performapal" monster he controls. He targets "Odd-Eyes" (2500 → 3700). "Odd-Eyes" attacks "Tarotrei", but Aura activates the effect of "Tarotrei", changing all face-down Defense Position monsters she controls to Attack Position. She changes "Prediction Princess Petalelf" (800/700) to Attack Position and activates its Flip Effect, changing all face-up Attack Position monsters her opponent controls to Defense Position and preventing them from changing their battle positions for the rest of this turn. "Odd-Eyes" and "Elephammer" are changed to Defense Position.
Duel continues in the next episode.

Differences in adaptations
- In the original, Aura hit Yuya with her crystal apple because he landed in a position where he would look up her skirt. In the dub, she hit him because he nearly landed on her which would have led to her crystal apple being shattered.
- Even though the card image of "Prediction Princess Tarotrei" shows it having 2700 ATK, its ATK gauge is displayed as 2600 instead and the damage calculation is done based on that value. The gauge is corrected in the dub.
- In the dub, when Aura uses the effect of her "Prediction Princess Crystaldine" to add a Ritual Monster from her Deck to her hand, she mistakenly says that she's adding a Ritual Spell Card.
