"A Taste of Space", known as "Close Encounters with Noodle-Kind" in the Japanese version, is the twenty-first episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! SEVENS anime. It first aired in Japan on October 24, 2020 and aired in Australia on July 4, 2022.

Looking for the "Nexus" where Nail is, Yuga & co. wander underground. Exhausted and hungry, they all smell a pleasant scent at the same time... before them they find a very flashy ramen shop crowded with Goha employees, "Out of This World Ramen". Serving an extremely delicious ramen is an alien called "Celestia"!? Where ramen is involved, Saburamen appears! It's a Ramen Duel again!

Summary[edit]

Once again, a trapdoor opens to drop Yuga and his friends into the Garden of Curiosity.

At the Road Laboratory, all of Yuga's friends that were affected by the penalty have gathered while Kaizo sits in a vase; Luke, Romin, Gavin, Rayne and Rino, Saburamen, Briscoe and Sushiko, the Duel Dinosaur Club; Diggs, Trench and Tracker, and the Newspaper Club, with Scoop standing with the others holding their Duel Disks while Nico whips around taking photos and Masaru holds out his microphone to whoever is speaking. Rino muses that this is what happened, and Sushiko holds up a plate of sushi rolls (one of which Luke takes), commenting that when sushi is rolled it envelopes many things, just as they have been rolled up alongside Rush Dueling. Saburamen realizes this is why they were all penalized and he comments that it's pretty problematic. Rayne comments that it's pretty sad the last Duel between Yosh and Mimi became one between a parent and child, and Romin agrees. Luke finishes his sushi roll and nosily comments that it couldn't have been helped, as it was divine punishment for that traitorous spy. Romin angrily tells him not to say it like that and Gavin urges them not to squabble. Yuga confirms that he was able to explain the situation to Yosh without revealing his mother's identity (with Mimi watching them the whole time). Sushiko offers them her tray again, stating that they're all in the same sushi boat now; if you can't beat them, join them she says. Saburamen declares that they all have to do their best to continue to protect Yuga's honor, and Rayne agrees, asking Yuga to tell them if there is anything they can do, with Rino adding that they'll all face account deletion if anyone here loses. Yuga happily thanks them, but then the room begins to shake and a hexagonal trapdoor opens beneath Yuga, Gavin and Luke, dropping them into the underground and leaving Romin teetering on the edge of the pit as Briscoe grabs Sushiko to keep her steady. Saburamen rushes over and grabs Romin's wrist, but before Romin can thank him, he loses his balance as well and they both fall into the pit, with Saburamen apologizing as they fall.

Yuga and his friends meet Advisor M.

Everyone lands on a thick mattress in the Garden of Curiosity, and Romin asks Saburamen if he's okay. Saburamen admits that it seems his training is lacking, but then hears a noise in the shadows and throws a pair of chopsticks into the darkness, asking who's there. A female voice giggles as a short woman in a pink, heart-emblazoned outfit walks out of the shadows with the chopsticks snapped between her fingers, and Luke rudely asks if she is the next Duelist. The woman chides him for being an idiot and tells them that she's not a Duelist, so she isn't suspicious either, she is the Masked Mystery, Advisor M. As she bends her body into the shape of an "M", Romin and Gavin realize who it is, and Yuga shushes them, suggesting they pretend like they don't know. Naturally, Luke is completely fooled by Advisor M's disguise and he asks who she is, with Saburamen adding that's a suspicious mask (and Romin asks if Saburamen is really one to talk). Advisor M bends into different poses as she explains that the Gate of Curiosity that leads to Nail's haven is in here somewhere and they need to find it. As she accidentally overbends, Gavin repeats the term and Advisor M states that's all for today's information before running away. Gavin calls after her, asking where the Gate of Curiosity is, but she simply tells them to remember the term. Gavin sighs, commenting that it seems Mimi wanted to lend a hand in her own way. Once again, Luke has no idea what Gavin is talking about, so Yuga suggests that they go over it later; for now they should search for this Gate of Curiosity.

The group find a ramen store in the Garden.

Three hours later, all of them are utterly exhausted as Romin gasps how long they've been walking. Gavin moans that he's so hungry as his stomach groans, but then Saburamen smells something. Gavin asks if he senses something suspicious, but Saburamen has smelled a noodley scent. His nose leads them to an underground ramen shop where several Goha Enterprises employees are waiting in line. Romin is shocked to find a ramen shop in the Garden and Gavin notes that it seems pretty popular. Saburamen rushes up to three Goha employees leaving the store and asks what this place is. The Goha employees are shocked that Saburamen has never heard of Out of This World Ramen and they state that everyone who works at Goha knows it's the best restaurant in the cosmos, and they head off, having eaten their fill. Romin asks if this is another one of Nail's traps, but Saburamen promptly takes his place in line, crying that he just has to be patient, and Romin irritably mutters that he fell for the trap.

The group meet Celestia Noodlina.

Eventually it's their turn to enter the store, much to Saburamen's joy. They enter to find a relatively plain store decorated with many cosmic-themed symbols, and Yuga comments that he sees why it's called the best in the cosmos. Luke asks where the workers are, but then they hear a voice saying "beep-boop-ba-beep-boop" and Saburamen asks what that sounds is. The beeping sounds again as strings raises what appears to be a flying saucer into the air, and Luke asks what it is. Gavin gasps that it's an Unidentified Flying Object, or a UFO, though Yuga lightly points out that it isn't really flying. But then the object settles on the ground and sprouts human legs, a torso, arms, and finally the head of a pale-skinned girl, much to the shock of everyone else. The girl welcomes them, calling them people of earth and explaining that she is an alien from the Menmen planet in the Ra Nebula, and her name is Celestia Noodlina. Gavin repeats Celestia's name, and Celestia clarifies that it's written as "alien", but read as "Celestia" (in the Japanese version, her name of "Sorako" is written with the same characters as the word for "alien"). Romin asks why she chose a name like that, and Celestia claims that Earthlings can't pronounce her real name, so she chose an Earth name. Luke comments that she seems to be a very considerate alien, and Yuga asks if she's a waitress at this restaurant. Celestia claims that she's the manager and serves them a bowl of ramen, the scent of which stimulates Saburamen's senses and Gavin gasps that it's wonderful, while Luke cries that he can't wait anymore (and Yuga and Romin both smile nervously).

Celestia offers to take Saburamen around the galaxy.

They quickly seat themselves and give thanks for their meal before they start eating, and quickly all find themselves experiencing extreme sensations; Gavin breathing blue fire, Romin outrunning a train, Luke calling it a full knockout as he headlocks a wrestler, though Yuga is more restrained and calls it simply the best. Naturally the ramen-enthusiast Saburamen has the most extreme reaction, asking how he can describe this, this soup reminiscent of their infinitely expanding and dark universe, naruto resembling a spiraling galaxy, pork like dark matter, and finally the noodles like a cosmic string; in other words it's a taste out of this world. Celestia comments that there's much more tasty ramen out in this galaxy, much to Saburamen's enthusiasm. Celestia offers to take him around, and Saburamen happily accepts as Yuga and Luke finish drinking their soup. Celestia turns around and comments that now that they're full, they can Duel; and she turns back with her Duel Disk strapped to her arm. Luke asks if she's one of Nail's henchmen, and Celestia asks who will be her opponent. Saburamen quickly volunteers, and Gavin notes that of course he has, seeing as the situation is ramen-related. Yuga encourages Saburamen to go for it, and Luke states that in that case they'll - Cheer him on, Romin says, but Luke states that they'll get seconds. Celestia quickly provides Luke with another bowl of ramen, and Luke thanks her as he wolfs it down, much to Romin's disapproval. Saburamen and Celestia call "Let's go!" and Saburamen claims he's touched up his Deck and he's ready to go, while Celestia simply beeps and boops, then they both insert their Decks in their Duel Disks and call "Rush Duel!", causing the green holographic dome to materialize.

Celestia declares her turn and draws, looking at her hand of "Big Bang Egger", "Cosmoscallion", "Chashooting Star", and "Outer Space" as she takes "Outer Space" from her hand and activates the Field Spell Card. In the blink of an eye they are surrounded by a starscape, with everyone standing on an asteroid. Everyone gasps in shock, Gavin asking if they've flown out of the atmosphere and into outer space, while Saburamen is enchanted by the incredible universe; in ninjutsu terms it's like possessing complete understanding. Celestia then Sets three monsters, claiming that they have come from outer space, then Sets a card and ends her turn.

Saburamen declares his turn and draws "The Noodle Art of Spicery", while his hand also contains "Spice the Elite Noodle Ninja", "The Noodle Art of Shakery", "Tang the Noodle Ninja" and "Stock the Noodle Ninja". First he Sets a card, then he Summons two monsters, "Tang the Noodle Ninja" and "Stock the Noodle Ninja". Celestia happily beeps, then declares the effect of her Field Spell, "Outer Space", much to Saburamen's surprise. She explains that it will lower the ATK and DEF of all Level 4 or lower monsters on the field by 300. Saburamen gasps in shock as his monsters are affected by the conditions, falling to 500 and 700 ATK respectively and he gasps that it's such a harsh environment for non-immune monsters. Yuga admits that the low-Level monsters can't seem to bear the conditions as they flail around and Gavin calls it relentless. Saburamen then Tributes his two monsters, declaring his rules; first: food before friends, second: strange noodles are good, third: time travelling noodles are great, fourth: fancy noodles are the best, and fifth: forevermore he shall love noodles. He Tribute Summons the Level 7 "Spice the Elite Noodle Ninja", and Gavin and Romin realize that since it is Level 7, "Spice" can survive in "Outer Space". Saburamen then sends the top card of his Deck (another "Tang") to the Graveyard to activate the effect of "Spice", increasing the ATK of all Pyro monsters he controls by 100 for each Normal Monster in his Graveyard. "Spice" erupts with a fiery aura as it powers up to 2500 ATK and Celestia beeps in shock. Then Saburamen activates a Spell card, "The Noodle Art of Spicery", which will increase the ATK of "Spice" by a further 300 as the aura continues to blaze around it. Saburamen declares his Battle Phase, and Celestia beeps in terror as her face-down monster, "Big Bang Egger" is revealed to have zero DEF, as Gavin notes, while Romin cheers. Saburamen adds that "The Noodle Art of Spicery" also allows "Spice" to inflict piercing battle damage, and he tells Celestia to prepare herself as it attack with "Ultra-Thick Fire", blasting two streams of fire from its hands and disintegrating "Big Bang Egger", and Celestia beeps in terror again as the attack continues and slams into her, reducing her LP to 1200.

Celestia explains that her UFO is powered by her LP.

Yuga and Luke cheer Saburamen's move, and Saburamen is quite satisfied by his move, but then Celestia begins beeping and glitching as she jerks around unnaturally and crackles with electricity. Saburamen asks in shock if Celestia is all right, and she briefly compresses back into her UFO state before emerging again and floating in the air. Saburamen flinches away, but Celestia frantically apologizes for disturbing him. Saburamen asks if she's okay again, and Celestia explains that Menmen UFOs run with LP as their energy, and the damage she took just now drained a lot of her energy. Yuga is intrigued by the concept, while Luke claims that he sees. A panel on Celestia's neck brace opens as she explains that her UFO will stop working if her LP hit zero, and Saburamen realizes that this would render Celestia unable to return to outer space. Gavin and Romin sigh, obviously not believing it, but Luke and Yuga are both shocked by the revelation. Celestia tells them not to worry about it, as they're in the middle of a Duel and they should continue. Saburamen hesitantly agrees, and he ends his turn, causing the ATK of "Spice" to return to normal.

Celestia tells them not to worry, as it's her turn now, and she draws five cards. She Sets another card, and then she Tributes her other two Set monsters, beeping happily as she returns to her UFO and rotates happily, chanting "Bentora, bentora! Greetings from the twinkling stars! Beep-boop-beep-boop! Tribute Summon! Cosmic String Noodryad!" "Noodryad" appears with 2500 ATK, and Romin gasps that Celestia's ace monster has come out, while Gavin muses that it's the hypothetical cosmic string. Luke misunderstands the concept, asking if it's stronger than an elastic string, and Yuga drifts past on his asteroid, commenting that no-one knows. Celestia explains that since "Outer Space" has been activated, she can send "Cosmoscallion" and "Big Bang Egger" from her hand to the Graveyard to activate the effect of "Noodryad", destroying all Level 7 or lower monsters on the field with its "Black Hole Exodus" effect. "Noodryad" twirls her staff, generating a massive black hole from an energy string that pulls in "Spice" and destroys it as Saburamen gasps. Then Celestia Summons another monster, "Galaxy Topping Troll", though it's still vulnerable to the effect of "Outer Space" and loses 300 ATK and DEF, bringing it down to 900 ATK. But because she controls "Outer Space", Celestia can activate the effect of "Topping Troll", increasing its ATK by 600, to 1500 (not shown is the cost of sending a card from the top of her Deck to the Graveyard). Romin cries "Oh no!" and Gavin gasps that Saburamen has no monsters, while Luke observes that his field is completely naked. Celestia orders "Noodryad" to attack Saburamen directly with "Twinkle Noodle Whip", and "Noodryad" twirls a large energy string around Meznaburo as she attacks.

Saburamen worries over what will happen if he wins the Duel.

The attack flings him into a space where he can see other galaxies. Saburamen marvels over how grand it all is as his LP falls to 1500, and he comes too on his asteroid, falling to one knee as Celestia beeps happily and prepares to attack again. Gavin asks his friends if they don't think this is strange; Saburamen's momentum from earlier seems to have completely faded, and Romin agrees now that Gavin mentions it. Saburamen asks himself if he'll lose here, but thinks that may be a good thing as he looks at the bemused Celestia. Saburamen thinks that if he wins Celestia's UFO will stop working, and he'll have to give up on his dream of eating ramen across the galaxy, but if he loses everyone will get another penalty. Does he focus on his dreams of outer space, or the Duel? Luke notes that Saburamen is worried about something, and Gavin comments that Luke is being surprisingly observant, though as Luke points out, he was worrying himself not to long ago. Romin calls to Saburamen, telling him they can help him if he's worried about something. Saburamen freaks out and he asks them how they knew he was worried about picking outer space or the Duel. Gavin and Romin are quite caught off-guard by Saburamen's admission, and Luke calls it ridiculous; of course you should choose Duels, isn't that right, Yuga?

Saburamen regains his confidence.

But Yuga admits that he would choose outer space without any doubts, much to Luke's surprise after his initial agreement, and that of Gavin and Romin. Romin asks if Yuga isn't worried about getting another penalty, but Yuga states that it's insignificant. Whether through outer space or Dueling, only Saburamen can realize his own potential. Once he does, he will surely see his own road stretch before him. Saburamen sees a new universe form behind Yuga, and Celestia sees it too, impressed that there is a human with such an ambitious spirit on Earth. Saburamen declares that he understands now; there is a potential universe in everyone, and now he can see the road of noodles that leads through galaxies, which only he can take. Celestia beeps in confusion, and Saburamen declares that there is a new dimension, the unbroken, continuous road within his heart, the infinite expanse of noodles; the Noodle Road. From here on out, Saburamen will give Celestia an ultra-large serving of breaking the Duel's limits. Celestia tells Saburamen to bring it on, but warns Saburamen that this is the final point of his universe, and this is the end, as her "Naurtorolla" attacks Saburamen directly.

Saburamen manages to defend his LP.

Saburamen tells her to hold it, as he activates a Trap Card, "The Noodle Art of Shakery", Special Summoning "Stock" from his Graveyard. Celestia points out that it will still be affected by "Outer Space" as it falls to 700 ATK. Saburamen declares that it will be enough, and "Topping Troll" destroys "Stock", reducing Saburamen to 700 LP. Saburamen asks what's next, but Celestia has to end her turn.

Saburamen declares his turn and draws, drawing "The Noodle Art of Roastery", "Extra Spice the Elite Noodle Ninja", two more copies of "Stock", and his final "Tang". Thinking that it's here, he declares that he will no longer hesitate, and he will say farewell to these sentimental feelings, taking his first step on the Noodle Road. He Summons three monsters, "Tang" and the two "Stock", who all lose ATK due to "Outer Space", as Celestia huffily reminds him. Saburamen replies that it doesn't matter, and Celestia beeps in surprise as Saburamen Tributes "Tang" and "Stock", declaring some more rules; sixth: the future is space noodles, seventh: the dark nebulous noodles of tears, and eighth: as always, he loves noodles. He chants "Embarking on the infinite Noodle Road, slurp, slurp, slurp, slurp! Now, Tribute Summon! Extra Spice the Elite Noodle Ninja!" "Extra Spice" appears in a fiery aura with 2400 ATK, and Gavin declares that it's Saburamen's new ace monster, while Romin notes that he'll win if this attack goes through.

But Celestia cries that it's Trap time, activating her Set "Chashooting Star", allowing her to gain LP equal to "Narutorolla's" Level times 200 and then return it to her hand. Her LP rises to 2000, and she begins bursting with energy due to the recovery. Saburamen warns her that it's not over yet and he sends "Stock" to the Graveyard to activate the effect of "Extra Spice", "Kaedama Bomber". It plucks a bomb from its belt and winds up to throw it at Celestia, knocking her backwards with an alarmed beep as Saburamen explains that she takes 1000 damage, and he can draw a card. Then he activates the Spell he drew, The Noodle Art of Savory", reducing the ATK of "Noodryad" by 400 for each Pyro monster he controls and deluging "Noodryad" in hot water. "Noodryad" falls to 2100 ATK, so Celestia activates another Trap Card, "Dark Butter", sending the top three cards of her Deck to the Graveyard; "Cosmoscallion", "Chashooting Star", and "Outer Space", and increasing the ATK of "Noodryad" by 500 for each monster she sent. "Noodryad" manages to endure the Spell as she rises to 2600 ATK, and Romin muses that it seems the weird alien isn't just all talk; Gavin agrees that she has stopped Saburamen's attacking momentum. But Saburamen isn't done yet, and he activates "The Noodle Art of Roastery", increasing the ATK of "Extra Spice" by 100 times the number of Normal Monsters in both of their Graveyards for the rest of the turn. Fire surges into "Extra Spice" as it rises to 3600 ATK, and Saburamen chants "Noodles! A second serving of noodles, and then a third! Don't drink up all the soup just yet!" He orders "Extra Spice" to attack "Noodryad" with "Ultra-Thick Straight", and it blasts its rocket arms at "Noodryad", destroying her and then surging towards Celestia. Saburamen apologizes as the attack connects, blasting Celestia away with a beep-boop and reducing her LP to zero.

Celestia tells Saburamen that she will never forget him.

The Field Spell fades, leaving Celestia beeping and crackling with electricity on the floor of Out of This World Ramen. Saburamen runs over to her, calling her name, but she weakly struggles up and reassures him that he's okay. Gavin calls it a moving performance before uttering a beep-boop himself, and Romin comments that the Duel is over, so Celestia can stop acting like an alien now. Celestia gets up and the panel on her neck brace slides open as she admits that it was a really amazing Rush Duel, but she's afraid she'll have to say goodbye to Saburamen now. Saburamen asks what Celestia means, and she explains that she's being picked up. Saburamen repeats her words and they all look up at the ceiling, as Celestia states that she has to go back to the mothership on the Menmen planet in the Ra Nebula to recharge her LP. Saburamen realizes what this means, and Celestia tells him that no matter how many thousands or millions of light years she may travel, she'll never forget Saburamen, nor his servings of noodles full of burning passion. She holds out her finger, and Saburamen touches it with his own.

Celestia leaves Earth.

A blue light erupts above them, and Luke asks what it is in shock. Similar beeps to Celestia's emit from the light as Gavin realizes what the light is, and Celestia bids them all goodbye before returning to her UFO form and flying into the air. She vanishes into the light, which fades to reveal the unmarked ceiling, and Saburamen calls after Celestia, while Gavin and Romin are shocked that she might have been a real alien after all. Yuga lightly comments that sometimes that's just how it is, and he suggests they keep searching for the Gate of Curiosity. Romin, Luke and Gavin agree, and they follow Yuga, but Saburamen remains behind, before nodding to himself and vowing that he will remember Celestia as a UFO spins into the heavens...

Featured Duel: Saburamen vs Celestia Noodlina[edit]

Saburamen VS Celestia.png

The Duel is conducted as a Rush Duel.

Turn 1: Celestia
Celestia's hand contains two copies of "Big Bang Egger", "Cosmoscallion", "Chashooting Star", and "Outer Space". Celestia activates the Field Spell "Outer Space". Celestia Sets three monsters. Celestia Sets a card.

Turn 2: Saburamen
Saburamen draws "The Noodle Art of Spicery". Saburamen's hand contains "Spice the Elite Noodle Ninja", "The Noodle Art of Shakery", "Tang the Noodle Ninja", "Stock the Noodle Ninja", and "The Noodle Art of Spicery". Saburamen Sets a card. Saburamen Normal Summons "Tang" (800/1000) and "Stock" (1000/1200). The effect of "Outer Space" decreases the ATK/DEF of all Level 4 or lower monsters on the field by 300 ("Tang": 800/1000 → 500/700)("Stock": 1000/1200 → 700/900). Saburamen Tributes "Tang" and "Stock" to Tribute Summon "Spice the Elite Noodle Ninja" (2200/0). Saburamen activates the effect of "Spice", sending the top card of his Deck to the Graveyard to have all Pyro Type monsters he controls gain 100 ATK for each Normal Monster in his Graveyard. He sends "Tang" to the Graveyard, so there are three Normal Monsters in his Graveyard ("Spice": 2200/0 → 2500/0). Saburamen activates the Spell "The Noodle Art of Spicery", choosing a Pyro Type monster he controls to have it gain 300 ATK and grant it the ability to inflict piercing battle damage. He chooses "Spice" ("Spice": 2500/0 → 2800/0). Saburamen Sets a card. "Spice" attacks a Set monster, which is revealed to be "Big Bang Egger" (600/0). The attack continues and "Big Bang Egger" is destroyed (Celestia: 4000 → 1200 LP).

Turn 3: Celestia
Celestia Tributes her two Set monsters to Tribute Summon "Cosmic String Noodryad" (2500/1000). As "Outer Space" is on the field, Celestia activates the effect of "Noodryad", sending two Pyro Type monsters from her hand to the Graveyard to destroy all Level 7 or lower monsters on the field. She sends "Big Bang Egger" and "Cosmoscallion" to the Graveyard and destroys "Spice". Celestia Normal Summons "Galaxy Topping Troll" (1200/1000 → 900/1000). As "Outer Space" is on the field, Celestia activates the effect of "Topping Troll", sending the top card of her Deck to the Graveyard to have it gain 600 ATK. She sends an unknown card ("Topping Troll": 900/1000 → 1500/1000). Celestia Sets a card. "Noodryad" attacks Saburamen directly (Saburamen: 4000 → 1500 LP). "Topping Troll" attacks Saburamen directly, but as a monster Celestia controls declared a direct attack, Saburamen activates his Set Trap "The Noodle Art of Shakery", Special Summoning a Level 4 or lower Pyro Type monster from his Graveyard in Attack Position. He Special Summons "Stock" (1000/1200 → 700/1200). A replay occurs and "Topping Troll" attacks and destroys "Stock" (Saburamen: 1500 → 700 LP).

Turn 4: Saburamen
Saburamen draws "The Noodle Art of Roastery", "Extra Spice the Elite Noodle Ninja", two copies of "Stock", and "Tang". Saburamen Normal Summons "Tang" (800/1000 → 500/800) and two copies of "Stock" (1000/1200 → 700/900). Saburamen Tributes "Tang" and a "Stock" to Tribute Summon "Extra Spice the Elite Noodle Ninja" (2400/0). As Saburamen Normal Summoned a Level 5 or higher monster, Celestia activates her Set Trap "Chashooting Star", choosing a Pyro Type monster she controls and gaining LP equal to its Level x 200, then returning it to her hand. She returns the Level 4 "Topping Troll" to her hand (Celestia: 1200 → 2000 LP). Saburamen activates the effect of "Extra Spice", sending a Pyro Normal Monster he controls to the Graveyard to inflict 1000 damage to Celestia and draw a card. He sends "Stock" to the Graveyard (Celestia: 2000 → 1000 LP) and draws "The Noodle Art of Savory". Saburamen activates the Spell "The Noodle Art of Savory", reducing the ATK of a monster Celestia controls by 400 for each Pyro Type monster he controls. He chooses "Noodryad" ("Noodryad": 2500/1000 → 2100/1000). As Saburamen activated a Spell, Celestia activates her Set Trap "Dark Butter", sending the top three cards of her Deck to the Graveyard and choosing a DARK monster she controls to have it gain 500 ATK for each monster sent to the Graveyard this way. Celestia sends "Cosmoscallion", "Chashooting Star", and "Outer Space" from the top of her Deck to the Graveyard and chooses "Noodryad" ("Noodryad": 2100/1000 → 2600/1000). Saburamen activates the Spell "The Noodle Art of Roastery", increasing the ATK of all Pyro Type monsters he controls by 100 for each Normal Monster in each player's Graveyard. Both Saburamen and Celestia have six Normal Monsters in their Graveyard ("Extra Spice": 2400/0 → 3600/0). "Extra Spice" attacks and destroys "Noodryad" (Celestia: 1000 → 0 LP).
