It’s all over, folks. After two days and eleven intense rounds of competition, one duelist has risen above the rest. That duelist is Osman Ortiz, who claimed the final Cyber-Stein for Team Comic Odyssey. After defeating Luke Chen in the quarterfinals, he went up against teammate Michael Fukuyama. Finally, he clashed with Robert Lim, winning by an overwhelming margin in two games to become the Shonen Jump Seattle Champion.
This is it. It all comes down to this final match. Osman Ortiz is taking on Robert Lim for the final Cyber-Stein to be given away in a Shonen Jump Championship. The match began with a race to see who could get to the seat facing the windows first. Robert won, but since he’s such a nice guy, he let Osman have it anyway. After inspecting each other’s decks and shuffling up, they rolled the dice and began the match.
As the players prepared for their match, they congratulated each other for their victories in the previous rounds.

Both players were given an opportunity to check through each other’s decks before the match began, and after doing so, they shuffled up in silence. At the word from the head judge, they rolled the dice and began the game.
Osman won the roll and opted to begin the game. He started off with Delinquent Duo, causing Luke to lose both Heavy Storm and Sakuretsu Armor. Osman continued with a set monster, then ended his turn. Luke set a card to each zone and passed back to Osman. Osman flipped D. D. Assailant, then played Nobleman of Crossout on Chen’s face down monster. It was Gravekeeper’s Spy, and all copies of it were removed from the game.
It’s been a long day, and it’s the final round. Both of these players are currently 6-1. The winner will make the Top 8, and the loser will need ungodly tiebreakers to have a shot at the Cyber-Stein.
