The world of Duel Monsters is once again evolving with the development of a network called Link Vrains and a new summoning mechanic introduced as Link Summoning. By using this cyberspace, duelists can now create their own avatars and duel their way to glory within a virtual reality.

However, much like the real world, the digital world is not free from war, conflict, and mysteries. Years ago, a hacker organization known as the Knights of Hanoi unleashed an attack on Link Vrains. Led by the anonymous Revolver, their aim was to annihilate the artificial intelligence program known as the Cyberse. After a failed attempt, one of their targets, Ignis, managed to escape and hide the Cyberse somewhere in the network.

Five years later, high school student Yuusaku Fujiki encounters a strange artificial intelligence program while dueling in Link Vrains. Under the guise of his avatar named Playmaker, Yuusaku and his partner in crime, Shouichi Kusanagi, decide to join forces with the peculiar existence. As he seeks the truth behind a mysterious incident of the past, Yuusaku battles against the Knights of Hanoi and SOL Technologies in a race that might alter the fate of the world.

And so ends another Yugioh series. Though ending shorter than expected. Though really, there wasn't much else you could do with the world they've set up. Which isn't a bad thing really. But it just meant the story wrapped up quicker than expected.

As for the show itself? It got me back into Yugioh honestly. But I can see that's not without it's faults still. While I did enjoy it. There were a few things, like with some of the characters, that weren't really that great at all. Let alone the pointless recap episodes. Though thankfully those stopped after the first season.

Sooo...Does Vrains hold up ...

From a hardcore Yu-Gi-Oh! fan, this show was somewhat disappointing. After coming off of the roller coaster that was Zexal and Arc-V (the former of which ending up pretty solid by the end), I really wanted to like this show. I thought this was going to be the 5Ds of the second trilogy of Yu-Gi-Oh! shows. I liked Yusaku’s design and the show had decent aesthetics. There are many things that hindered Vrains from being good. For one thing, the show suffered from shoddy production and change of directors leading to an excessive amount of recaps. The Goddamn Recaps!

I’ll be delving into various plot points ...

I've always been a big fan of the Yugioh series. Each iteration managed to improve upon its predecessors in some way or another, while still keeping things "fresh". Yugioh 5D's pushed the envelope with its outrageous concept and it succeeded. Coupled with strong characters and a great storyline, 5D's is easily my favourite of the series. Comparing the later seasons to the earlier ones, it becomes clear that the newer yugioh anime take a similar route to a specific earlier part; especially in the tone, character designs as well as themes. Zexal has its roots in the original DM, ARC V in GX and this ...
