"The Shiatsu Nether-Empire Strikes Back" is the thirty-fourth episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! SEVENS anime. It first aired in Japan on January 30, 2021.
In order to discover the secret of Asana and co., Yuga sends Kaizo and Sebastian to Nail. Before the two of them, who are taking shelter from the rain, there's an assassin of the Heavy Cavalry Duel Club who's a denizen of the underground!? Finger Chikako appears, and challenges Sebastian and Kaizo to a Duel!
At the Abandoned Dorm, Yuga, Luke, Romin, Gakuto, Ranze and Rinnosuke are digging under the supervision of the Heavy Cavalry Duel Club, Romin asking why she has to do this. Gakuto replies that it's the collective responsibility of the Rush Duel Club, while Luke is taking a "Bunker Strike" approach to his shovelling. Galient, his own shovel in hand, warns Luke to be careful with his, as they are the ancestors of heavy machinery. Romin asks Galient why he's still here, and Galient replies that he came here himself; having lost GG03 all he can do is return the to the basics and confront his heavy machinery as he caresses' his shovel. Ranze wonders if Galient is suffering from GG03 Withdrawal Syndrome, and Gakuto notes that Galient is in shock after all. They break for lunch, and when Romin wonders how long they'll have to do this, Yuga reassures her that they're the lowest of the low now and unlikely to be bothered, so they can take it easy. Gakuto quietly asks Yuga what he means, given that they came here to learn the Heavy Cavalry Duel Club's secret, and Yuga confirms that they are, though Romin is skeptical given the high security. Yuga reassures them that the high security only applies to them, and covertly indicates Kaizo and Sebastian - or rather, the Roads he has disguised as them. Gakuto asks where they are now, and Yuga explains that he sent them to Haven, which Gakuto and Romin realize that means Yuga has sent them to Nail, and Yuga confirms that he wants to inform Nail about what's happening here, and suggests that he may know where Asana got her Maximum. Right on cue, the oblivious Luke finishes eating and demands a massage from Sebastian, forcing his friends to try and keep hm quiet.
In the nearby forest, a Heavy Cavalry student hears a rustle in the bushes and goes to investigate, but only finds Sebastian in his chair mode and decides to take a break. He has a short massage before being warned not to slack off by another Heavy Cavalry student, and they quickly rush off. Once the coast is clear, Sebastian retreats into the bushes with Kaizo, lamenting at the notion of a background character sitting on a massage throne like him. Kaizo calls him "chair" and tells him to hurry up so they can escape, and Sebastian insists that he is a throne, oblivious to the security camera recording him. The camera is being watched by the Heavy Cavalry club, who ask Chevelle what they should do as Trapigeon chirps from his shoulder, and Chevelle orders them to deploy the "Empire", much to the surprise of his fellow club members, explaining that they can't let even a fly escape, a sentiment Trapigeon chirps in agreement with.
Back in the forest, Kaizo asks Sebastian how far the Door of Providence is, and Sebastian reminds him that it's the Gate of Providence and is likely still some time away. Kaizo notes that Seven is still a while away, and Sebastian once again corrects him that it is Haven, though he knows a shortcut. Kaizo suggests they hurry and meet Nile, and Sebastian flicks him away in anger, reminding Kaizo that it is Master Nail, spelling it out for Kaizo, who claims that's what he said. Sebastian is embarrassed that Kaizo would slip up so and that he is a Drone like him. Kaizo accuses Sebastian of being a traitorous chatterchair for cozying up to Asana because of her power and suggests he shouldn't talk, prompting Sebastian to call him a piece of junk. Kaizo angrily asks if Sebastian wants to fight again, and Sebastian declares that they will settle the score this time. Kaizo suggests that the first to make it to Nail will win, and Sebastian agrees, stating that Kaizo will apologize for his disrespect when he wins, while Kaizo claims that Sebastian will have to bow until he breaks if he loses. They get ready to begin, but Kaizo claims to have seen a UFO and distracts Sebastian long enough to get a head start, much to Sebastian's anger. Despite this, Sebastian is still confident he will win, given that only he and Nail he know the shortcut to Haven.
But as they run, they sky darkens and it begins to rain. As they move through the forest, Kaizo contacts Sebastian, noting that it only takes 0.05 seconds for Drones to communicate with one another, and claims to be talking to himself, but notes that there's a nearby cave that it might be nice to shelter from the rain in. Sebastian sighs, but he diverts from his path and finds Kaizo in the cave drying by a fire and sits down beside him. They exchange glances, but just as Sebastian begins to speak a familiar voice calls "Drilling-drilling-drilling!" and a spinning object bursts from the ground in front of them and expands into a girl resembling Noodle Sorako, greeting the people of the surface and claiming to be a Subterranean from the Shiatsu Nether-Empire, introducing herself as Finger Chikako. Sebastian asks in surprise if Sorako wasn't once of Nail's henchmen, though Chikako claims to have never heard of an alien whose name is pronounced as "Sorako" and introduces herself again. Naturally, Kaizo is enthralled with her, but then Chikako observes that this is one of the flies she can't let through, much to Kaizo's surprise, and she straps on a Duel Disk, challenging them to a Rush Duel. The Drones are shocked by the challenge, and Sebastian realizes that Chikako is with Goha 6th Elementary. Chikako challenges them to her "Shiastu" Duel, which will leave them unable to stand, and though Kaizo is eager to Duel her, Sebastian insists that he will take on the challenge. Kaizo flies forwards to Duel anyway until Sebastian contacts him and he retreats, Sebastian claiming that pieces of junk should step back, as he has prepared for when this day would inevitably come. Sebastian explains that this will be a fight between the massage chair and acupressure; the decisive battle to decide which best heals humanity. Kaizo asks what Sebastian is on about, but Chikako doesn't mind who Duels and just wants to start. Sebastian politely asks her to accept his Duel, and they extend their Duel Disks, calling "Rush Duel!" and deploying the green holographic dome around them.
Sebastian politely declares his turn and draws "Dwell Chair Massage", which he adds to his hand, also containing "Dwell Chair Saber", two copies of "Dwell Chair Gear", and "Darkness Rit-chair-al". Welcoming Chikako to the Massage Chair Salon, he Summons "Dwell Chair Massage", then sends a card from his hand to the Graveyard (a "Dwell Chair Gear") to activate the effect of "Massage", sending the top two cards of his Deck to the Graveyard, and then if one of them was DARK, he can add it to his hand, then increase Chikako's LP by its ATK. Having sent a "Dwell Chair Bone" and another "Massage" to his Graveyard, Sebastian adds the zero ATK "Massage" to his hand as Chikako notes that she basically gains nothing as a result. Sebastian Summons his second "Dwell Chair Massage" and sends his other "Gear" from his hand to activate its effect, this time sending the third "Gear" and third "Massage" to the Graveyard and adding the third "Massage" to his hand, once again with zero ATK as Kaizo notes and Chikako merrily sings. Sebastian Summons his third "Dwell Chair Massage" and uses its effect as well, smiling and commenting "M-m-m-massage" as he sends "Saber" from his hand to the Graveyard and "Throne of Darkness" and "Dayu the Dark King of Chairs" form his Deck to the Graveyard, adding "Dayu" to his hand and revealing it to Chikako. Kaizo cheerfully comments that "Dayu" has zero ATK too and calls it a scam recovery effect, though Chikako doesn't seem too worried. Kaizo suggests contacting the Goha Customer Support Center, but Chikako bumps him away and claims that flies should be quiet, prompting Kaizo to mute himself. Sebastian declares that his massage has not ended yet and sends his three Chairs to the Graveyard to activate the Spell Card "Darkness Rit-chair-al", Special Summoning "Throne of Darkness" from his Graveyard, then drawing another card since the three monsters he sent to the Graveyard to activate his Spell had the same name. Then since he has at least eight monsters in his Graveyard with zero ATK, Sebastian activates the effect of "Throne of Darkness" to Special Summon "Dayu the Dark King of Chairs" from his hand. Chikako reacts with interest, and Sebastian crows that while she was pretending to be healed, he completed all the preparations for his massage. But Chikako asks if he's done, and to his shock, Sebastian sees her lying on six drills, which she claims are the best for pressure points on the back. Sebastian isn't happy, Setting his "Power of Throne" Trap Card and ending his turn, and once he's done so, Chikako leaps off the drills, pleased that he's finally done.
She declares her turn and draws "Magrrma Shear 2", which she adds to her hand containing "Aromagrrma", two copies of "Acuvolcano", and "Magrrmassa G", then Summons the two "Acuvolcano" and her "Aromagrrma", before Tributing one "Acuvolcano" to Tribute Summon "Magrrma Shear 2". Sebastian activates his "Power of Throne" Trap by returning "Throne of Darkness" to his hand, explaining that it forces Chikako to draw cards equal to the Level of the returned monster, and as "Throne of Darkness" was Level 8, Chikako draws eight new cards. Sebastian adds that Chikako will also be unable to attack monsters with zero ATK for the rest of the turn, insisting that her thumbs will not press anywhere. Chikako asks if Sebastian knows that it's called a thumbprint when one presses their thumb down, much to Sebastian's irritation. Chikako then sends "Magrrmassa G" and her third "Acuvolcano" from her hand to the Graveyard to activate the effect of "Aromagrrma", gaining 3000 LP for each card she sent and claiming that acupressure will change one's life as her LP rises to 4600. Then she sends three cards (another "Magrrma Shear 2", Aromagrrma", and one other Effect Monster) from her hand to the Graveyard to activate the effect of "Magrrma Shear 2", changing the Level of a monster by the same value. Sebastian calls it a meaningless move as this does not change its ATK, but is shocked when Chikako chooses to change the Level of "Dayu" by 3, reducing it to a Level 4 monster with an acupressure session. Then she Tributes her remaining "Acuvolcano" and her "Aromagrrma" to Tribute Summon "Magrrmassa G". She sends a monster from her hand to the Graveyard to activate the effect of "Magrrmassa G", increasing the ATK of a Level 4 or lower monster by 500 for each monster she sent, and "Magrrmassa G" blasts green lightning from its fingertips, increasing the ATK of "Dayu" to 500. And since it no longer has zero ATK, she can attack it, a move Sebastian admits is surprisingly cunning. Chikako Sets two cards and then declares her Battle Phase, attacking "Dayu" with "Magrrma Shear 2", who destroys "Dayu" with a rapid barrage of thumbprints and reduces Sebastian to 3000 LP. Then "Magrrmassa G" attacks directly, blasting red lightning at Sebastian that reduces him to 900 LP. Chikako bows, declaring that they look forward to seeing him again and lying back on her six drills as she ends her turn.
Sebastian vows that he's only just begun, and he declares his turn and draws four cards; "Dwell Chair Scale", "Dwell Chair Saber", "Dayu Ahez the Mirror King of Chairs", and "Joint Chair", in addition to his "Throne of Darkness". He Summons "Dwell Chair Scale" and activates its effect, returning two zero ATK monsters from his Graveyard to the bottom of his Deck, then Special Summons "Dayu the Dark King of Chairs" from his Graveyard. Sebastian then Summons "Dwell Chair Saber" and Tribute it and "Scale" to Tribute Summon, chanting "Even if the king dies, the throne does not! Come forth, Throne of Darkness!" He thinks in satisfaction that he just needs to use the effect of "Dayu" on "Throne of Darkness" to increase its ATK to 4000, allowing him to settle this in one blow, but Chikako activates a Trap Card, "Heart of Geoatsu", gaining 500 LP for each monster on the field and claiming that "Heart of Geoatsu" is also the heart of a Duel, as acupressure will change one's life, rising to 5600 LP. Sebastian gasps "What?!" and Chikako also reveals that all monsters Sebastian controls will also gain 500 ATK until the end of the turn, rising them both to 500 ATK and preventing him from using the effect of "Dayu", who she gives another acupressure session. Sebastian snaps that none of it hurts, much to her confusion, and he asks who she thinks he is; he is the ultimate massage chair, a massage throne that surpasses human fingers in terms of comfort. Since he has at last eight zero ATK monsters in his Graveyard, he activates the effect of "Throne of Darkness", chanting "It is time for a new king to sit upon the throne! Come forth! Dayu Ahez the Mirror King of Chairs!"
Sebastian then activates the "Force of the Ys" effect of "Dayu Ahez", returning all zero ATK Chairs in his Graveyard to his Deck to reduce the ATK of "Throne of Darkness" by 300 for each monster returned, and then increasing the ATK of "Dayu Ahez" by 300 for each monster returned. "Throne of Darkness" returns to zero ATK, while "Dayu Ahez" rises to 2400 ATK as Chikako calculates and freaks out about. Sebastian boasts that a massage throne like him lacks a single pain point and sends "Collapse Chair" from the top of his Deck to the Graveyard to activate the "Force of Ys" effect of "Dayu", who sits upon "Throne of Darkness" to gain 500 ATK times its Level, rising to 4500 ATK. Chikako panics, and Sebastian Sets a card, then declares that he will send her to an eternal rest with the best massage she has ever had. "Dayu" attacks "Magrrma Shear 2" with "Yscrew Burning", destroying it with a blast of blue energy and reducing Chikako to 2600 LP with a panicked scream. Then "Dayu Ahez the Mirror King of Chairs" attacks "Magrrmassa G" with "Ys Burning Screw", destroying it and reducing her to 2300 LP with a wail. At the end of the turn, the ATK of Sebastian's monsters returns to normal, and he bows politely, ending his turn. He thinks that he'll be able to rub Chikako out if he can survive until the next turn, and he is counting on his fellow chairs.
Chikako declares her turn and draws five cards, then Summons two "Massage Magrrma", which she promptly Tributes to Tribute Summon, chanting "Greetings from the underground! Melt the earth, Magmax Mantle-Ayurveda!" Sebastian activates a Trap Card, "Joint Chair", changing "Dayu" and "Dayu Ahez" to Defense Position, and Chikako asks him why he's doing that. Sebastian explains that she will be unable to attack "Throne of Darkness" while he controls his other monsters, but Chikako simply declares herself the rumored golden finger from underground and sends another "Magrrmassa G" from her hand to the Graveyard to activate the "Soothing Sleep Max" effect of "Magmax Mantle-Ayurveda", destroying all monsters Sebastian controls with the same Level as the one she sent to the Graveyard. Sebastian gasps that "Magrrmassa G" is Level 7, realizing what this will mean, and Chikako lies down on her drills and bids him goodnight as "Magmax Mantle-Ayurveda" rushes forwards and rapidly hits "Dayu" and then "Dayu Ahez" with a flaming thumb, destroying them both. Sebastian can only cry "What?!" and Chikako tells "Magmax Mantle-Ayurveda" to hit the finishing point, ordering her to attack with "Sound-Sleep Beddy-Bye Attack of the Thumb", destroying "Throne of Darkness" and reducing Sebastian's LP to zero, blasting him into the cave wall and badly damaging him.
But despite his loss, Sebastian is laughing, much to Chikako's confusion. He explains that his duty was not to win, but to prolong the Duel for as long as possible, and Chikako realizes that Kaizo is gone. Sebastian confirms that Kaizo is fulfilling his promise to him; before the Duel, Sebastian told Kaizo to find Nail while Sebastian fulfilled his promise to Nail to protect Yuga and his friends; Kaizo can fly faster and thus it was better for him to go on ahead. He had ordered Kaizo to promise him to reach Nail, and Kaizo had agreed, but only as long as Sebastian promised not to die here, as they still had to settle the score. Sebastian confirms that was what they said to one another, and Chikako huffs and drills into the ground.
At Goha 6th Elementary, Chevelle is horrified that the Empire's security was broken; the Heavy Cavalry Duel Club have just received a reports stating that "the fly got away, but it's time for me to return home". Trapigeon and Chevelle are confused by the statement, but then Asana enters the room, Chevelle calling her "Princess". Meanwhile alarms are sounding at the Abandoned Dorm, and as Gakuto wonders what happened, Yuga deduces that Kaizo and Sebastian must have escaped successfully, and he suggests they go now that security has been loosened. Romin asks where they're going, and Yuga points at the mine, stating that they're going to search for the truth.
Meanwhile, Kaizo has successfully reached the Goha Corporation Main Office and is searching for the shortcut to Haven, finally finding it in a trash can by a vending machine and telling Nail to come out, as Sebastian told him about the shortcut, but finds himself trapped by the lid and drawn in, dropped into Nail's haven where he is reading. Nail comments that the shortcut should have been something that only he and Sebastian knew about, and Kaizo flies up to Nail's eyeline, explaining that Sebastian told him about the shortcut, much to Nail's surprise. Kaizo claims that Sebastian should be here soon, as he's a high-performance massage throne and should be all right.
But in the forest outside the cave, the sun shines on the battered Sebastian, and he laments that it seems he couldn't fulfill Kaizo's promise before shutting down.
Nail asks Kaizo if there's an emergency, and Kaizo remembers why he came in the first place, explaining that Yuga and the others are in danger, much to Nail's quiet shock.
And at Goha 6th Elementary, Asana declares that the Heavy Cavalry Duel Club will completely crush Rush Dueling, and for that reason she will challenge Yuga to one last match. Chevelle asks what she means, with Trapigeon chirping in confusion, and Asana explains that in order to make Yuga bet his Rush Dueling she will bet Heavy Cavalry Duels in her challenge. Chevelle protests over what will happen in the unlikely case that Asana loses, but Asana insists that she's prepared for the consequences and will crush Rush Dueling with her own hands. But then an emergency is declared: Yuga and his friends have escaped and gone into the underground tunnels. Asana gasps "What?!" as the cameras show the false Roads he used and the open mine entrance, and within the mine Yuga leads Romin, Luke, Gakuto, Ranze and Rinnosuke, all using their Duel Disks as lights and back in their normal clothes as they venture deeper into the tunnels.
