"The Power of Cuteness?" is the nineteenth episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! GO RUSH!! anime. It first aired in Japan on August 7, 2022.

Yuhi and co. were going to keep Dueling in the Coruffium, but Manabu told them to not come to the Alien Residential Area. Ranran Nanahoshi, the chief of MIK, then showed up out of nowhere and declared that the lawless Alien Residential Area must be sealed off immediately! What action will Manabu take in response to Ranran?

Featured Duel: Manabu Sogetsu vs. Ranran Nanahoshi[edit]

Turn 1: Ranran

Ranran's hand contains two copies of "Dahlia the Sprouting Shadow Flower", "Shadow Flower Spore", "Kudzu the Bruised Shadow Flower", and "Begonia the Pressed Shadow Flower". Ranran Normal Summons "Dahlia" (300/1500), "Begonia" (800/100), and "Kudzu" (900/200). Ranran Sets 1 Card.

Turn 2: Manabu

Manabu's hand contains "Chemicalize Salamander", "Fiery Blaze", "Dynamo Might", "Flame Seeker", and "Methyl the Flame Jinn of the Lamp". Manabu Normal Summons "Flame Seeker" (1400/400), "Dynamo Might" (1100/1100), and "Methyl" (1000/500). Since "Dynamo Might" was Normal Summoned this turn, Manabu activates its effect, allowing him to inflict 300 damage to Ranran (Ranran: 4000 → 3700 LP). Since Manabu controls 2 or more Pyro monsters, he activates "Fiery Blaze", allowing him to inflict 300 damage to Ranran, then he can destroy a Spell/Trap Ranran controls. Manabu destroys Ranran's Set "Shadow Flower Spore" (Ranran: 3700 → 3400 LP). Manabu Tributes "Dynamo Might" and "Flame Seeker" to Tribute Summon "Chemicalize Salamander" (2500/1500). Manabu activates the effect of "Methyl" since it was Normal Summoned this turn, allowing him to add a Level 4 Pyro Normal Monster from his Graveyard to his hand, also he can only attack with Pyro monsters for the rest of this turn. Manabu adds "Flame Seeker" from his Graveyard to his hand. Manabu Normal Summons "Flame Seeker" (1400/400). "Methyl" attacks and destroys "Begonia" (Ranran: 3400 → 3200 LP). "Flame Seeker" attacks and destroys "Kudzu" (Ranran: 3200 → 2700 LP). "Chemicalize Salamander" attacks and destroys "Dahlia" (Ranran: 2700 → 500 LP).

Turn 3: Ranran

Ranran's hand contains "Dahlia", "Begonia", "Blanc de Blanc the Snow Shadow Flower", "Shadow Flower Duplication", and "Shadow Flower Sewing". Ranran Normal Summons "Dahlia" (300/1500). Ranran Tributes "Dahlia" to Tribute Summon "Blanc de Blanc" (1900/1000). Ranran activates "Shadow Flower Sewing" since she has a Plant Normal Monster in her Graveyard, allowing her to send the top 3 cards of her Deck to the Graveyard to have a face-up monster Manabu controls lose 100 ATK for each Plant Normal Monster in her Graveyard until the end of this turn, then if Ranran has a Level 5 Normal Monster in her Graveyard, she can destroy all Level 7 or higher Normal Monsters Manabu controls. Ranran sends 2 copies of "Blanc de Blanc" and "Kudzu" from the top of her Deck to the Graveyard and chooses "Chemicalize Salamander", and she has 7 Plant Normal Monsters in her Graveyard ("Chemicalize Salamander": 2500/1500 → 1800/1500). Ranran activates "Shadow Flower Duplication", allowing her to place a card from her hand on the bottom of her Deck to Special Summon up to 2 Plant Normal Monsters from her Graveyard whose Levels are less than or equal to the Level of a Plant Normal Monster she controls, then if she controls a Level 5 monster, she can destroy all Level 7 or higher Normal Monsters Manabu controls. Ranran controls the Level 5 "Blanc de Blanc", so she Special Summon 2 copies of the Level 5 "Blanc de Blanc" (1900/1000) from her Graveyard. The three copies of "Blanc de Blanc" attack and destroy "Methyl", "Flame Seeker", and "Chemicalize Salamander" (Manabu: 4000 → 3100 → 2600 → 2500 LP).

Turn 4: Manabu

Manabu's hand contains "Pierce!", "Blast Examiner", "Phantom Bind", "Analyze Phlogiston", and "Ethyl the Flame Jinn of the Lamp". Manabu Normal Summons "Ethyl" (500/1000). Manabu activates the effect of "Ethyl" since he controls no other monsters, allowing him to Special Summon "Methyl the Flame Jinn of the Lamp" from his Graveyard in face-up Defense Position. Manabu Special Summons "Methyl" (1000/500) from his Graveyard. Manabu Tributes "Methyl" and "Ethyl" to Tribute Summon "Phlogiston" (2300/2300). Manabu activates the effect of "Phlogiston", allowing him to send a Spell/Trap from his hand to the Graveyard to shuffle 3 Pyro monsters from his Graveyard into his Deck whose combined Levels equal the combined Levels of all Level 8 or lower Attack Position monsters Ranran controls, then destroy all Level 8 or lower Attack Position monsters Ranran controls, also Manabu can only attack with 1 monster this turn. Manabu sends "Phantom Bind" from his hand to the Graveyard and Ranran controls the 3 copies of the Level 5 "Blanc de Blanc", so Manabu shuffles the Level 4 "Dynamo Might", the Level 4 "Flame Seeker", and the Level 7 "Chemicalize Salamander" from his Graveyard into his Deck and destroy the 3 copies of "Blanc de Blanc". "Phlogiston" attacks Ranran directly (Ranran: 500 → 0 LP).
