My Review:

Principle Mackenzie is possessed and makes his final move to crush the students of Duel and Academy and defeat Chazz and Jaden to seize their spirit cards Light and Darkness Dragon and Winged Kuriboh.  He tricks Aster Phoenix and all the best players to seize their cards and takes away their life forces. 

All of Jaden's friends are forced to fight their possessed friends which they lose to them.  Syrus life force is sucked out of him and his spirit arrives in Nightmare World chained on a web.

Chazz and Jaden are forced to fight and Chazz manages to win his round but Jaden is losing his.  Chazz races off to help Jaden and finds him unconscious but unhurt since Winged Kuriboh sucked the darkness from him.  They decide to team up against the Professor which doesn't look like it's going to well.  Chazz tells Jaden he will entrust his face up card to him with his most powerful play.  Finally Jaden calls his best play and combines his Winged Kuriboh with Chazz's Light and Darkness Dragon and crush the Professor's monster. 

The Professor won't give up with a fight but both Winged Kuriboh and Light and Darkness Dragon are determined to destroy the Professor's monster.  Winged Kuriboh sucks up the darkness from the Professor's monster and all of them disappear.

At the end Jaden becomes a pro dueler and challenges his mentor to a game to determine who is the Best Duelist in the World.
