From Jesse to Jaden, we get the card that Neos Wiseman should of been in the real card game like it was in the anime: Elemental HERO Neos Kluger.

Neos Kluger is a Level 9 LIGHT Spellcaster Fusion with 3000 ATK and 2500 DEF. Great overall stats to have, LIGHT is great, and while Spellcaster is good, I would love to know where it came from when fusing a Fiend and a Warrior. I know Neos Wiseman is also a Spellcaster, but it’s still curious as to why he is as well. Anyways, Elemental HERO Neos and Yubel are your Fusion Materials, which is easy to access via Neos Fusion so you don’t have to hard draw either of them. It must be Fusion Summoned, something we see on almost every Elemental HERO Fusion. Before damage calculation, when this card attacks, you get to inflict damage to the opponent equal to the ATK of the monster it’s battling, getting some nice burn in at the very least, just unfourtunate we lose the LP gain equal to the DEF of the opponent’s monster that Neos Wiseman had, but it’s no big deal. Second effect triggers upon destruction in battle or via an opponent’s card effect while its owner controls it, letting you summon Neos Wiseman from the hand or Deck while ignoring summoning conditions, which is your easier way to finally summon Neos Wiseman over getting both Neos and Yubel on the board and hard drawing it. Summoning Neos Wiseman is a hard once per turn, though I’m assuming you’ll never really be in a position to do it twice in a turn anyways. It 100% is an upgrade for Neos Wiseman we’ve waited years on, though it would of been nice if the original was a Fusion to begin with like in the anime. At least waiting years for this gives us a floater into the original, and now we got Neos Fusion to actually warrant running this.

Advanced Rating: 3/5

Art: 5/5 Neos Wiseman, while cool, was a little bland minus Neos and Yubel being in the background. We lose that aspect, but the monster itself looks cooler.

This week ends with…starts with…This weekend ends with Elemental Hero Neos Kluger.  Light/Spellcaster is always an awesome pairing, and the Fusion here is performed specifically by Elemental Hero Neos and Yubel.  So, we first see this guy HAS to be Fusion Summoned.  (I don’t personally feel he’s THAT good that we had to do that, but I’m not in charge of those things).  The next Effect is rather awesome, however, where you can before Damage Calculation, you can inflict Damage equal to the attack of the Monster (that isn’t yours) to your opponent during Battle.  Fun, I guess that’s the part that’s supposed to justify the ‘must be Fusion Summoned’ clause.  Secondly, if this card is destroyed by Battle or leaves the Field via opponent’s Card Effect, you get to Special Summon a Neos Wiseman from your Hand or Deck, ignoring its Summoning conditions.  Any Effect (even if we don’t use the card in question) that says ‘ignoring its Summoning conditions’ is incredible.  Especially when the Monster can be as difficult to drop to the Field as Wiseman is.  This card IS better than Wiseman, I would say, considerably so.  Which, also in my mind, doesn’t make this card MUCH better either.

Rating:  3/5

Art:  3/5 also.  While not at all bad, nothing here is particularly striking or jumps out at me.  Also, there’s not enough Yubel in this art.
