Technically, the Crimson Dragon was mentioned by name whenever Jack summoned Tyrant.
He did? I'd need to re-watch those scenes. Sounds like if they did, it just got all like "not my problem broh" xD
Reminded me of the abridged movie dialogue of Yusei and the Crimson Dragon lol.
"You can time travel too? Can you take me back in time to see my parents?"
"Nooooo.... That would be a lame use of my powers!"
Maybe what happened is that in this reincarnation of signers not all of them are around....

Something that's been bothering me is that they said the dimensions are now together again, but it's kind of abstract...
We never really saw clearly what the original dimension's world was like. I mean, we see a little bit but not the world itself.
Now that they are all fused, we are pretty much only shown Miami being the same as ever.
I originally was hoping for a finale in which the Yu boys and the girls remained separate and where their locations changed from dimensionally located to geographically located close-by (which would ironically make them more of a pain to travel to). Then we'd see the life of the boys and girls back in their place, with an overview of how those locations evolved ever since the lancers passed by. Even if they used a ton of still frames it would have been great IMO. Then have the last scenes be something along the lines of Reiji or maybe Yusho making a new tournament in which all the boys and girls are partaking on, showing they can now safely be together without need of the bracelets to pull them away.
^The show didn't exactly line up with that at all, but that's what I was hoping for halfway into the series.
Instead what we got was "all the Yus get to live Yuya's dream without any hint of their personalities in him. He's still just Yuya and they are fine with that".
Reiji's bosses at the end were alright, but something I think is a very glaring flaw of Reiji's (which ties with the issue of his expensive VA causing fewer scenes with him on) is that his last duel's bosses just happened. There needed to be duels for him where he got to unlock those powers individually so that they would have more weight at that last duel when played together....
