14th June 2015
Yuya and his friends, who were caught by security, were taken to the camp that everyone fears. Although they were reunited with their other friends, they find a duelist who controls all prison guards and prisoners waiting for them.
Yuya and his friends were captured by security and taken to the detention facility that everyone fears, with the rumour that once you’re in, there’s no way out. Yuya, who is worried about the missing Reira, is reunited with his fellow Lancers. But the rejoice is short lived as they find a duelist who controls all prison guards and prisoners waiting for them.
Note regarding the title:
地獄の沙汰(さた)もカード次第 Jigoku no Sata mo Kaado Shidai is a play on the phrase “地獄の沙汰も金次第” (Jigoku no Sata mo Kin Shidai) that means “Even in hell, the extent of one’s suffering is determined by money”. To explain, it basically has the same use as “Money talks”, “Money opens all doors”, “No penny, no pardon”, “Money makes the world go round”, “Money is the best lawyer in hell” etc.
So the title could alternatively be translated as “Cards talk”, “Cards open all doors”, “Cards make the world go round”. Master Ghost suggested going with the “No Cards, No Pardon” pun, but one could possibly go “Cards are the best lawyer in hell”.
So yeah. Puns, there’s a lot of ways to go with this title.
