“Now Revealed!! Yugi’s Secret”
“Ima Abakareru!! Yūgi no Himitsu” (今暴かれる!! 遊戯の秘密)
Aired JAPAN: May 2, 1998
A plane takes landing into an airport. A man in a white bathrobe walks through the airport.
Yuugi and the gang are reading a newspaper. One of the highlights is an excavation to Egypt. Yuugi says they found the king’s grave at Egypt and it will be displayed at the museum the next day. Miho thinks it’s exciting. She wants to go. Yuugi says the professor who found the grave is friends with Grandpa. He’ll show them the excavations. Anzu points to a picture of the professor in the newspaper. She then says Yuugi’s puzzle was also found in Egypt. Yuugi agrees. Anzu says the people who found the puzzle all died mysteriously. Jounouchi wonders if Yuugi is cursed, but Yuugi doesn’t think so. Yuugi tells himself he does sometimes have memory loss after completing the puzzle. But Yuugi decides to keep that a secret.
Honda points to a mummy in the newspaper. Jounouchi freaks out over it, but tries to hide it. Honda wonders if Jounouchi’s scared of mummies. Jounouchi exclaims no way. Honda gets a crazy thought. He pictures Miho running from a mummy and into his arms. In his imagination, Honda promises to protect Miho, even at the cost of his own life. Honda gets excited, and he also wants to go to the museum. Anzu says they will meet at the museum tomorrow at one o’clock.
The next day, everyone waits at the museum’s front doors. The professor walks up to Grandpa and greets him. Grandpa is pleased that the professor is willing to show them the exhibit. He then introduces Yuugi and the gang to Professor Yoshibori. Honda is impressed that the professor found the king’s grave. Another man then walks up to them. Yoshibori says he’s the sponsor for the display. He was also in charge of the excavation. The man introduces himself as Kanekura. Suddenly, the same man in the white bathrobe makes a slight appearance from behind the bushes. Yuugi notices someone there, but he’s not too sure. Kanekura asks Yoshibori about the “item”. Yoshibori asks Grandpa about his grandson who solved the Millenium Puzzle. Kanekura immediately sees Yuugi’s Millenium Puzzle and holds it in his hands. Yoshibori tells Yuugi Kanekura is a special dealer; Yuugi can trust him. Yuugi grabs the Millenium Puzzle back from Kanekura.
Honda wants to see the mummies; Miho wants to go too. Kanekura asks Yuugi to let him display the Millenium Puzzle in the museum. Yuugi isn’t too sure, since he always wants to keep the puzzle around his neck. However, Yuugi decides to let Kanekura take the puzzle, since it will only be for a day. Kanekura takes the Millenium Puzzle off Yuugi’s neck and thanks him. He then turns around and says, “One day will be enough.”
Inside the museum, Miho screams in happiness at all the wonderful displays. She shows Anzu a necklace that shines in beauty. Anzu notices Miho is drooling. Meanwhile, Yoshibori is taking everyone else on a tour. Jounouchi asks if all the treasures belong to the people who dug them up. Yoshibori says no. Half the treasures became personal possessions. Then they all belonged to Egypt. Grandpa agrees. That’s why a famous person wasn’t able to keep any of his treasure. Yuugi thought archaeologists were just people who were after treasure. Yoshibori says there’s not enough profit in that. However, when Yuugi solved the Millenium Puzzle, Yoshibori became more dedicated to his work.
Anzu sees some ancient carvings in one display. Yoshibori explains the carvings depict the judgment of the dead. The crimes that people made would be measured with a scale. If the weight of the crimes caused the scale to tilt to one side, monsters would consume those people. Yoshibori then says it’s time to see the mummies. Jounouchi gets a little scared, but Honda is really excited. At the mummy exhibit, Miho screams. Honda says it’s time. He opens up his arms and tells Miho to jump into his chest. However, Miho says the mummies are cute. Anzu questions Miho’s feelings. Miho says the mummies look like babies with their shaved heads. Honda looks down and sees Jounouchi grabbing his chest. Honda pushes Jounouchi off him and into the mummy case. Jounouchi glances at the mummy and screams. He tells everyone to move to the next exhibit before they get cursed.
Yuugi stares at the mummy exhibit for a little longer. The man with the white bathrobe walks up beside Yuugi. Yuugi looks up and sees tears fall from the man’s eyes. Yuugi asks why he’s crying. The man says they are not his tears. He says the mummy looks like a rotten piece of dirt. Still, the soul of a great Pharaoh lives within it, and the lamination of the soul becomes the tears within the man. Yuugi notices the man is holding a scale. The man pets Yuugi’s head and calls him a cute boy. Yuugi exclaims he’s a high school student, as the man walks away.
Meanwhile, Kanekura and another man are looking at the Millenium Puzzle. The man thinks the Millenium Puzzle looks great and wants to buy it. Kanekura whispers to the man that they’ll do business in his office. Jounouchi points out the display that contains Yuugi’s Millenium Puzzle. As the gang runs over to it, Kanekura and the man walk away. Anzu thinks they should take a photo of it. Yoshibori asks if Yuugi really wanted to let the puzzle go. Yuugi says no. Yoshibori explains the exhibit wouldn’t have been possible without Kanekura’s help. Anzu tells everyone to gather around the Millenium Puzzle for the photo. Yuugi, Jounouchi, Honda and Miho stand next to it and pose.
Everyone then walks outside. Grandpa thanks Yoshibori for a great day. Everyone says goodbye as Yoshibori walks off. Anzu asks what they should do now. Yuugi says he’s waiting for the museum to close because he wants his puzzle back. Anzu says they should split up now. Everyone waves goodbye to each other. Yuugi looks at his watch and notices it’s four-thirty. Only thirty more minutes left until closing time.
Kanekura is in his office holding the Millenium Puzzle. He’s happy that the Millenium Puzzle is now his! Suddenly, Kanekura hears a knock on his door. He wonders who it could be. Kanekura’s business partner speaks, and Kanekura tells him to come in. Suddenly, the lights go out. The door opens, and the business man falls to the floor. Then the man in the white bathrobe approaches Kanekura. He says he’s from a family that has guarded the graves for three thousand years. He’s Anubis’ disciple! Kanekura knows Anubis is the one that deals with the dead. He begins to worry. The man in the white bathrobe says Kanekura’s dirty ambition has disturbed him, and so now he must be judged! Kanekura thinks the man is from the Egyptian government. The man pulls out his scale and sets it on Kanekura’s desk. The man says this is the scale that measures the truth. He pulls out a feather from his hat and says they will have a Yami Game.
On one side of the scale, the man sets the feather of truth. Right now the scale is balanced. The man says he will now ask Kanekura a few questions. If he doesn’t tell the truth, weight will be added to the opposite side of the scale. That will be the weight of his crime. If the opposite side of the scale touches the ground, there will be a punishment game. Kanekura gasps at the words “punishment game”. The man asks the first question. A girl falls into a well, and he is the only one that saw it happen. At his feet is a gold ring that the girl dropped. What will you do? Kanekura exclaims he will save the girl. The side of the scale that doesn’t have the feather tilts downwards. Kanekura stares at the scale, saying he wasn’t lying. They move onto the next question.
Yuugi waits outside the musem ready to get his puzzle back. He looks at his watch and finds out its 4:55 PM. Excited, Yuugi decides to go back for his puzzle. Back with the test, Kanekura exclaims he hasn’t been lying, yet the side without the feather continues to sink! He thinks its some kind of trick. The man shakes his head no. Kanekura asks what the punishment game is. The man decides to tell Kanekura about the punishment game before he asks the last question. He says it lies in Kanekura’s heart. The chair that Kanekura is sitting on transforms into a monster. The monster grabs onto Kanekura, and Kanekura begins to freak out. The man explains the monster is Amemid, a creature that lies within Kanekura’s mind. Amemid drools on Kanekura’s head. It has its jaws open, ready to eat him. The man states the final question: Kanekura has violated God’s land and has exchanged treasures for money. Does he do it for personal profit? Kanekura exclaims he’ll pay money if that’s what the man wants! The side of the scale without the feather falls to the bottom. The man says there’s no truth in Kanekura’s heart. It’s all a bunch of greed! As punishment, Amemid consumes Kanekura.
With the Yami Game over, the man places the feather back on his head. He says Kanekura’s mind was full of money and greed. That turns into demons, and Kanekura was consumed by those demons. The man picks up his scale and is ready to walk away. But suddenly, he sees the Millenium Puzzle lying on the desk. He picks it up and is amazed the Millenium Puzzle is complete. For thousands of years, the man has heard it hasn’t been completed once. So why is it here? He wonders if a person in this country solved the puzzle.
Yuugi wanders the museum, looking for his puzzle. He thinks the museum is like a huge maze. The man with the white bathrobe approaches Yuugi. Meanwhile, Kanekura holds his head in fear. All of the damage is occurring inside Kanekura’s own mind. Yuugi notices the man is holding his Millenium Puzzle. The man asks if he was the one who solved it. Yuugi says yes, but he wants to know why the man has it. The man tells himself the one who solves the puzzle possesses the power of darkness. He must make sure Yuugi really holds this power. With the Millenium Cross around his body, the man decides to peek inside Yuugi’s mind. The Millenium Cross activates, and the man now finds himself inside Yuugi’s mind. Yuugi’s mind consists of two rooms. One room is scattered with toys and purity. But what does the other room contain? The man opens the door and sees Yami, the spirit of the Millenium Puzzle, appear. The man wonders if it’s Yuugi, but he notices this new guy looks different. Yami asks who he is. The man says he’s visited people’s minds before. Normally, each person only has one room; however, Yuugi has a second room! This room feels like an ancient Pharaoh’s tomb. Yami doesn’t know how the man got here, but he wants to know why the man came. The man says he’s a guest, and that he’s came here to learn more about the Millenium Puzzle’s power. Yami is surprised the man knows about the Millenium Puzzle.
The man explains the Millenium Puzzle is a dark item. For three thousand years, it has rested in the king’s grave. It’s power was used to judge criminals. Yami asks if the man came here by using one of the Millenium items. The man says he holds the Millenium Cross, an item that gives him access to people’s minds. With this power, he can learn all about the person including personality and abilities. He also has the Millenium Scale, an item that measures the weight of sin for those who are being judged. However, the man doesn’t know much about the Millenium Puzzle. He asks Yami how much power it has.
The man can tell the Millenium Puzzle has lots of power just by seeing Yami’s room. He says his family will be taking this power if they need it. Yami questions that. He tells the man the Millenium Puzzle’s power is in his room. However, to show it, Yami wants to play a game. If the man wins, Yami will tell him the secrets of the Millenium Puzzle. The rules are simple. Somewhere in his mind holds Yami’s true room. Can the man find it? The man states he has special abilities. With his power, he can freely manipulate the rooms of a person’s mind. He can also destroy that person’s personality. The man decides to accept the game. Yami wonders if it will really be that easy.
The rest of Yami’s mind appears. It’s full of staircases and doors. It’s almost like a maze! The man says it feels like there’s a countless number of doors. But he knows one of them is Yami’s true room. The man starts walking up a flight of stairs. He decides to open one of the doors. As he does, a huge boulder falls, and it almost hits the man. Yami appears and says it will be a long journey before the man can find his true room. The man realizes there are traps, and he decides to move on. One by one, the man opens the doors. In one of the rooms, a flood of water knocks the man down. In another room, a flamethrower sets the man’s clothes on fire. However, the man soon realizes they are only illusions.
The man closes his eyes and decides to use all his nerves to find the right door. Determined to discover the Millenium Puzzle’s true power, he finds his way to another door. He wonders if it’s the real one. He opens the door and sees Yami sitting in a chair. Yami says hi. The man asks if he made it in the right room. He walks forward, but as he does the floor gives in. The man begins to fall, but he quickly grabs onto something. The man realizes if he falls, he’ll be trapped in this mind forever. Yami extends a hand out to the man and says it’s not a trap. The man grabs onto Yami’s hand, and Yami pulls him up. The man can’t believe Yami saved him. Yami says it’s a bad idea to peek inside other people’s minds. The man wonders if he lost the game or not. Yami says no, it’s only the beginning. The man bids farewell to Yami and then leaves.
Meanwhile, Yuugi sees the man standing very still, not moving at all. The man realizes he entered Yuugi’s mind to test him, but in the end, he was the one who was tested. Yuugi asks the man if he’s okay. The man says he’s okay and returns the Millenium Puzzle to Yuugi. Yuugi is glad to have his possession back and thanks the man. The man says he should be thanking Yuugi since he’s in Yuugi’s debt. Yuugi asks if he lent the man something. The man says he’s in debt to the other Yuugi. Yuugi has no idea what the man is talking about. The man realizes Yuugi has no awareness of his other personality. When Yuugi and his other half become one, then the true power of the Millenium Puzzle will awaken. The man asks for Yuugi’s name, and Yuugi gives his name to the man. The man says he has many things to do in the country, but they will meet again soon. He introduces himself as Shadi. It’s the first time Shadi has told his name to a stranger! Shadi walks away. Yuugi just stands there, thinking Shadi is weird.
