"Disco Duel", known as "The Transfer Student is an Elementary Schooler?" in the Japanese version, is the seventh episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! SEVENS anime. It first aired in Japan on June 20, 2020. It will air on June 9th on Disney XD in America.
Goha Enterprises has been having trouble eradicating Rush Duel. They currently have their eyes on Yuga's "secret notes." Goha has a group of six executives known as "Top of the Hexagon," and now, one of them will be sent to Goha #7 as a transfer student. Can Yuga and his friends protect Rush Dueling from the adults?!
At the Goha Enterprises Main Office, the Top of the Hexagon convene around a hexagonal table, witnessed by hundreds of Goha Enterprises employees. One of them notes that they are certainly in an unfavorable position as reports from all over the world have been received and there is concern regarding the impact of Rush Dueling. A female Top notes that Goha Enterprises cannot allow these uncontrolled Duels to continue expanding, though another Top of the Hexagon states that they can't find the Rush Dueling program data anywhere on the server; the only thing they can do is delete the videos that broadcast it one-by-one. The first Top notes that they shouldn't be worried yet, as the Special Service of Goha have found important new information. A copy of the Goha #7 Elementary newspaper emerges from the table, much to the shock of the watching employees, and the first Top notes that there may be a clue in the Goha #7's newspaper. Up above them, the Goha President laughs and he points at the paper's photo of Yuga, showing him holding a notebook claiming that all the secrets of Rush Dueling are contained inside. The third Top eagerly states that it will help them find a way of uninstalling it, and they all declare that they need it, but are at as loss as to how. The female Top - shown now to be extremely short in comparison to her fellows - suggests they let her carry out this important mission, reassuring them that everything will be fine.
At Goha #7 Elementary, the homeroom teacher states that a new student has transferred to the class. The other students are interested, having not been told about this the previous day, though Yuga is busy scribbling down notes at his desk. The new student - an auburn-haired girl in a pink dress - walks in with a dazzling aura, and the teacher wearily asks her to introduce herself. The girl happily introduces herself as Mimi Imimi, the eternal elementary student; she likes Italian cuisine, her favorite fashion is loose socks, she has a pet axolotl, and she always dances with a lambada dance, but what she's most interested in right now is Rush Dueling. The mention of Rush Dueling rouses Yuga and Romin's attention, and Yuga eagerly asks if Mimi likes them from her previous school. Mimi claims that it isn't only her, but everyone is enthusiastic. Yuga is glad to hear that, claiming that he wants to bring back everyone's smiles from this restrictive world, but before he can explain his Road, Mimi approaches him, asking if he's Yuga Ohdo. Yuga asks how Mimi knows his name, and she holds up the newspaper and explains she saw him in it. Yuga is pleased at how well the Goha 7th Newspaper is doing, but their teacher is more interested in getting them back to class. Yuga ignores him, asking Mimi to tell him what she thinks of Rush Dueling, though he stumbles over her name. Mimi patiently introduces herself again, though Romin is suspicious.
Later in the girl's bathroom, Mimi speaks into a phone concealed in her bag, confirming that she is here and has already been transferred. Goha Headquarters confirm, and order her to continue with her mission. Mimi copies, and she hangs up. She thinks to herself that her name is Mimi Imimi, and she is thirty-seven years old and counting. She is one of the six high-ranking executives of Goha Corp; one of the Tops of Hexagon. It's taken her a while to get so high, due to the fact that she is still seen as an elementary school girl despite being an adult, and she's been through a lot. People things she's lost if she's walking through the city streets, and if she's shopping she's often told how admirable it is for her to be doing so, while old women will offer her sweets. But when she thinks about it, it's really a treasure that God gave her. She has worked harder than anyone so as not to lose to her rivals, and this way she can get closer to and become the classmate of Yuga Ohdo. She has been commissioned to steal the notebook which contains the secrets of Rush Dueling, and she will succeed in her mission and be promoted to a higher position. She enthusiastically declares that someday she will climb to the highest position in Goha, but outsider her stall, two other girls hear her exclamation and laughter and suggest that they should call the teacher. As Mimi goes through the school day, she reflects that even though she's just met Yuga, it seems he didn't make Rush Dueling to destabilize the world. He doesn't look like a villain sprinkling a villainous virus program that would mess up the world with disorder, chaos and madness, but on the contrary he seems to have a serious and pure look to him, not unlike the eyes of her son when he sees his napolitan spaghetti. But then she steels herself, telling herself that she's sure Yuga's eyes are dirty, as if he sold his soul to the devil at any price, and she must not be fooled. The other girls are following Mimi again, one telling the other that she told her they should have called the teacher and the other agreeing.
Meanwhile, Gavin and Luke have convened with Yuga and Romin; Gavin explaining that there are rumors about Mimi in the Student Council, as they aren't sure which school she came from. Luke immediately declares that's too suspicious, and Gavin and Romin agree, but Yuga doesn't care, as Mimi likes Rush Duels. Mimi shows up, calling his name, and Yuga comments that she's just in time and offers to introduce her. Mimi introduces herself, and Yuga begins to introduce everyone else, but Mimi takes note of all of them; Gavin, the popular Student Council President who has excellent grades, Luke, one of the best Duelists in Goha 7th, and Romin, the admired and best guitar player the school has ever had. Luke and Gavin wonder how Mimi knows about them, but Romin exasperatedly notes that it's probably because of that embarrassing newspaper, and Gavin realizes she's right. Mimi explains that she read they are always together and Rush Dueling, and she also wants to be friends with them. Yuga is happy to let Mimi join in and he offers to show her the Road Laboratory, but Luke yanks him aside and he tells him not to believe Mimi so easily; she could be a Goha agent. Mimi panics on hearing that, and Yuga protests that she's an elementary student, so Luke suggests that Mimi could instead want to be King of Duels. Gavin states that Mimi's transfer is questionable, so it's too strange to ignore.
Mimi states that she forgot something, and leaves, asking them to wait a second. She bites her thumbnail as she rings up Goha Enterprises, thinking that they shouldn't underestimate the power of the world's most powerful company. Goha Headquarters answer and Mimi orders them to put "Operation I forgot something" underway. Three drones quickly deliver packages to Mimi, and she returns to Yuga and his friends, apologizing for the delay. They are quite surprised that this was what Mimi went to get, and Mimi explains that they are gifts intended for them to get to know on another better. Luke takes his; tiramisu, coconut cream, and pana chocolate, the most popular sweets among young people, and is quite appreciative. Gavin is gifted the latest front line player for VHS and betamax; he states that he'll be able to use it to watch the oldest Sogetsu-style Duels. Romin receives a cassette player with a selection of the best eurobeat music, and though she is appreciative of the music, she is confused by the tapes having a side A and B. Yuga meanwhile is offered 300,000 yen in cash, though he insists he doesn't need it. Mimi turns on the charm, stating that she also wants to be closer as his friend.
They head to the Road Laboratory, though Luke warns Mimi to be careful when she goes in. Gavin states that they're already there, and Romin states that Mimi will have to put up with the mess, much to Yuga's irritation. He welcomes them to the Road Laboratory, and he shows Mimi several of his Roads. Mimi is shocked that Yuga made all of this, though Yuga admits that they're half-finished and he's improving them. Kaizo zooms over with something to drink, and Mimi asks in shock if Yuga modified this Drone as well. Kaizo introduces itself and states that it is the ultra-high performance drone, though Yuga calls him a failed Road, much to poor Kaizo's dismay and he asks why Yuga always calls him failed. Yuga states it's because he always calls Romin "Romin-chan", but Mimi has spotted Yuga's notebook in a corner. He phone rings, and she irritably answers it, telling the person on the other end that she already told them she put the food in the refrigerator. Yuga is quite shocked to see the phone, and Mimi panics, claiming that her favorite fashion drama is about to start and quickly sliding out of the laboratory. Yuga notes that was a phone, not a bag.
Later Mimi (now wearing more adult clothing and a sign on her back stating "I am an adult") sits at a bar with a drink, musing on the location of Yuga's notebook and commenting that she would become the next leader of Goha if she did. Disguising herself in ninja-like clothing that night, she leaps from a wall and sprints through the streets, entering the Road Laboratory and tip-toeing past the sleeping Kaizo. She grabs the notebook, but then the lights snaps on and the nearby curtain is pulled aside to reveal Romin, Yuga, Luke and Gavin standing there. Mimi quickly hides the notebook behind her back as Romin snaps that she knew this would happen and she scornfully returns the cassette player to Mimi, as does Gavin with the VHS player (though despite Luke's best efforts he's unable to return the chocolate he already ate). Yuga is saddened by the notion that Mimi approached them from the beginning to steal his Roads, but Romin has to tell him that's not what Mimi was after. Luke holds up Yuga's notebook, explaining that Mimi was after the secrets of Rush Dueling written within it. Mimi internally yelps that this can't be, and she claims that she only wanted to know more about the Rush Dueling that she loves, and if she read that notebook she could have much more information. Gavin sternly tells her that isn't a valid excuse, and Yuga states that Mimi should have simply told him if that was the case, much to everyone's surprise, and he tells her that she can have the notebook. Mimi gasps in surprise, and Yuga explains that she'll like Rush Dueling more, zooming over as he tells her not to be shy and she stammers in protest. Her eyes go white as she asks why Yuga would do this, thinking internally that this must be a trap; this is the boy who created the evil program that even Goha's efforts can't uninstall (imagining Yuga and his friends with evil expressions as she does so). She wonders if something bad could happen if she takes the notebook back to headquarters. Thinking that she almost let herself be fooled, Mimi returns the notebook to Yuga. Yuga reassures Mimi that she can keep it, but she insists that she doesn't need it, and the exchange continues back and forth as Kaizo finally wakes up. Mimi suggests they settle their argument with a Rush Duel, and Yuga agrees; if he wins, then Mimi has to keep the notebook. Mimi states that if she wins, Yuga will have to not give her the notebook, and he'll forget all about this. She pulls off her ninja-garb, revealing her school clothes underneath, and vows not to lose. Everyone is surprised by her declaration, but Yuga straps on his Duel Disk and comments that it sounds good.
They relocate outside, and both call "Let's go! Rush Duel!" as they deploy their Duel Disks and the holographic dome appears around them. Mimi thinks that she'll find out more about Rush Dueling and how to uninstall it, and that way is to fight. She declares her turn and draws, then takes "LaMoon the Party Princess", "Kanan the Sword Diva" and "Bubbly Elf", from her hand (which also contains "Triple Threat Thunder" and "Party Party Party") and Summons them, declaring that tonight they will all go out to the city to show who they are. Luke is enchanted by Mimi's striking monsters, and Gavin admits that he didn't expect to see such legendary monsters that were once so famous - "Mystical Elf", "Kanan the Swordmistress" and "LaMoon". Mimi declares that the party will start now, and she activates "Party Party Party". Romin stammers the card's name in surprise, and Mimi explains that it will switch all of her Aqua monsters to Defense Position, and she will gain 400 LP for each one, so a total of 1200. Mimi's monsters all primp themselves as Gavin asks what they are doing; are they preparing to go out at night? Mimi rises to 5200 LP, and Gavin asks why the monsters are so happy. Luke seems confused by Gavin's statement, and Romin notes that she's seen something like this; those strange hairstyles and clothes make the monsters look like her aunt in photos from when she was young. Luke asks why Mimi has such monsters in she's in elementary school, and Mimi internally panics, reflecting that despite looking young she's thirty-seven years old and there was a time when everything was bright and shiny, even her. She ends her turn, Setting the final card in her hand.
Yuga doesn't get it, but he doesn't care, as Rush Duels are Duels where anyone can have fun, and this is his Road. He declares his turn and draws, grinning as he looks at his hand. Gavin, Romin and Luke comment that they have arrived, and Yuga takes "Spell Archer" and "Dark Sorcerer", from his hand (which also contains "Pierce!", "Dark Revelation", and "Sevens Road Magician"), Summoning them both. Then he Tributes both of them to Tribute Summon, chanting "Cut open a road through the walls, the mountains, and the planets that block my way and press onward! Let's go! Sevens Road Magician!" He sends the top card of his Deck to the Graveyard to activate the effect of "Sevens Road Magician", increasing its ATK by 300 for each monster with a different Attribute in his Graveyard. He has "Spell Archer", "Dark Sorcerer" and "Shining Shaman" in his Graveyard (WIND, DARK and LIGHT) so "Sevens Road" rises to 3000 ATK. Then Yuga activates the Spell Card "Pierce!" and Gavin notes that now if "Sevens Road" attacks a monster in Defense Position it will inflict piercing battle damage to the opponent. Yuga Sets a card and declares his Battle Phase, attacking "Kanan" with the "Sevens Magic" attack of "Sevens Road". "Sevens Road" cuts down "Kanan", reducing Mimi to 2200 LP as she cries that this is bad. Yuga ends his turn, the ATK of "Sevens Road" returning to normal.
Mimi curses, crying that this is bad, and she declares her turn and draws "Kanan the Sword Diva", "LaMoon the Party Princess", "Dian Keto the Boogie Master", "Bubbly Elf", and "Party Time - Disco Ball", smiling at her draws. Gavin is shocked that she is smiling after losing so much LP, and Mimi bids her monsters goodbye, chanting (and doing her lambada dance as she does so) "Tower above with your shoulder pads! Hover up high in DC Brand! Now blossom in full glory at the deadline so that even the neon flowers of the city that never sleeps fall into envy! I Tribute Summon Dian Keto the Boogie Master!" "Dian Keto" emerges with 2500 ATK, dancing on the spot. Mimi then sends her "Bubbly Elf" from her hand to the Graveyard to activate the effect of "Dian Keto"; "Beauty Skin Care", and she regains 1000 LP, bringing her to 3200, much to Yuga's shock. Mimi takes out her phone, mock calling and commenting that she thinks it's better to have more people dancing on the disco floor. She asks "Kanan the Sword Diva" and "LaMoon the Party Princess" if they want to be Summoned again, and brings them out, then adds that there's still much more to go. She activates the Spell Card "Triple Threat Thunder", and Gavin is shocked at the idea of 3K in this 8K era; Romin has to tell him that's not what the K means. Mimi explains that if she has three Aqua monsters on her field, she can choose one monster Yuga controls and reduce its ATK to zero until the end of the turn, much to both Yuga and "Sevens Road's" shock. Mimi tells Yuga he should feel honored that she's giving him such special treatment and "Dian Keto" is doused with water, reducing the shocked "Sevens Road" to zero ATK. Luke cries that "Sevens Road" is exhausted and Mimi Sets a card, declaring that she's the only one who will stand, and she orders "Dian Keto the Boogie Master" to lambada dance with "Sevens Road Magician", and "Dian Keto" dances at sunrise, holding up an ankh and destroying "Sevens Road Magician" with a ray of reflected sunlight, reduced Yuga to 1500 LP. Gavin cries "Sevens Road's" name in shock, but Mimi declares that there's more and she orders "Kanan the Sword Diva" and "LaMoon the Party Princess" to give Yuga a parapara dance for the finale.
But Yuga grins, commenting that won't happen, and he activates the Trap Card "Dark Revelation". Luke excitedly recalls that "Dark Revelation" can be activated when the opponent declares an attack, and Mimi and her monsters all gasp. Yuga explains that by returning four Spellcasters to his Deck he can destroy all Attack Position monsters his opponent controls. As Mimi's monsters shatter into glowing shards, Gavin comments that he sees; because "Sevens Road" went to the Graveyard, Yuga was able to activate "Dark Revelation" and Romin congratulates Yuga. Mimi purses her lips as the last remnants of her monsters fade, and she ends her turn.
Yuga declares his turn and draws, looking at his new hand of "Raidacross, Hero of the Dawn", "Magical Beast Wolfang", "Straynge Cat", "Hydro Magician", and "Hilt, the Bearer of Noble Arms". He declares that his Road will go beyond this and continue to increase until the sun rises, and he Summons "Magical Beast Wolfang" and "Straynge Cat", then Tributes them to Tribute Summon, chanting "Guide me toward the rising sun and shine! Raidacross, Hero of the Dawn!" Mimi cheers that Yuga Summoned a Level 5 or higher monster, which allows her to activate the "Party Time - Disco Ball" Trap Card and Special Summon "Dian Keto" from her Graveyard. She vows that her time to shine will not end, the night where she dazzles will never end. But Romin declares that being up all night is bad for one's skin, much to Mimi's shock. Yuga activates the effect of "Raidacross", returning two Spellcaster monsters from his Graveyard to his Deck to Special Summon two Level 5 or lower Spellcaster monsters from his hand. Mimi gasps as Yuga brings out "Hydro Magician" and "Hilt, the Bearer of Noble Arms" with the "Sunlight Order" effect of "Raidacross". Mimi gasps nervously as Yuga activates the effect of "Hilt, the Bearer of Noble Arms", increasing the ATK of a Warrior monster he controls by 600. He chooses "Raidacross, Hero of the Dawn", who rises to 2700 ATK and orders it to attack "Dian Keto the Boogie Master" with "Daybreak Sword". "Raidacross" charges forwards, striking "Dian Keto" with its blade and sending her flying, destroying her and reducing Mimi to 3000 LP. Next Yuga attacks directly with "Hydro Magician", who strikes Mimi with a torrent of water, reducing her to 1300 LP, and finally he attacks with "Hilt, the Bearer of Noble Arms", telling it to make the voice of the first dawn heard, who strikes Mimi with a burst of light from its specter and reduces her LP to zero. As she sees the sun rise, Mimi reflects that somehow it isn't the same as the yellow sun last night and she thinks that it's very refreshing.
Yuga runs over and hands her the notebook, telling her to take it. The notebook contains all the feelings of his Road, and Yuga promises that the more Mimi reads it, the more she will like Rush Duels. Luke and Gavin sigh, but Romin seizes her chance to snap a picture while no-one is looking. Mimi blushes, and she asks if Yuga really wasn't going to trick her. Yuga is surprised by her statement, but Mimi claims it was nothing and thanks him, stating that she'll borrow it. Later, she stands on a bridge and she wonders if it's really okay that she got the notebook in such a cowardly way. She prepares to throw the notebook away, but decides not to and smiles.
But the next day at Goha Enterprises, the Top of the Hexagon are thoroughly befuddled by the sketches of Yuga's various Roads, and they wonder if its eyebeams or pose are the key to uninstalling Rush Dueling, while Mimi can only sweatdrop at her seat as another suggests it may be drawn in a special ink and declares he will take it to the laboratory. And up above them, the Goha President simply laughs.
At school the next day, Mimi spies on Yuga as he eagerly wonders what he can do to make Rush Dueling more fun. Luke suggests that Gavin give him an idea, though Gavin protests that he can't think of one. As Romin chides them, Mimi vows that someday she will beat Yuga in a Rush Duel and discover the secret to uninstalling it, but even though her vow is internal, her spying has attracted the attention of the other girls again, who tell each other that they should have called the teacher.
