Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL chapters

"Destined Meeting!!" (うんめいい!! Unmei no Deai!!) is a special chapter of the Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL manga which was printed in Weekly Shonen Jump (whereas the series was usually printed in V Jump). It was later reprinted in the volume 1 of Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL.

This chapter is non-canon to the Yu-Gi-Oh! ZEXAL manga series, which means the events that happen here do not actually happen in the series.


Kaito Tenjo, a Numbers Hunter, steals a person's soul after defeating him in a Duel. However, he gets frustrated since he has no "Numbers".

Meanwhile, Yuma Tsukumo sees a demonic door in a dream, and wakes up. In the next day, he meets Kotori and Tetsuo at school. Later, Yuma and Tetsuo Duel, but apparently Tetsuo defeats Yuma with ease.

At night, Tetsuo searches for Yuma, as he forgot his pendant, which calls Kaito's attention, who was nearby.

When Yuma and Kotori find them, Tetsuo is down in the ground, soulless, and Kaito is standing in front of him. In order to retrieve Tetsuo's soul, Yuma is forced to Duel Kaito.

Kaito quickly Summons a high-Level monster and makes Yuma defenseless, but The Door appeared before Yuma and told Yuma to open it and he will gain new strength in return. Yuma does so and Astral appears before him and tells Yuma to active "Monster Reborn" and bring back "Ganbara Knight", then Overlay the two Level 4 monsters to Summon "Number 39: Utopia". When "Utopia" appears, it causes Kaito's D-Pad to malfunction and he retreats, giving Tetsuo's soul back. Afterwards Astral introduces himself and asks Yuma to fight alongside him and save the Astral World.
