In the city of Den City, thousands of duelists take part in a virtual reality space known as Link Vrains, where users can create unique avatars and participate in games of Duel Monsters with each other. As a mysterious hacker organisation known as the Knights of Hanoi threaten this world, a high-school student named Yusaku Fujiki battles against them under the guise of Playmaker.

One day, Yusaku encounters a peculiar artificial intelligence program, which he names Ai, who sets off a digital maelstrom in Link Vrains known as the Data Storm. As the appearance of this storm gives birth to Speed Duels, in which duelists surf the wind as they duel, Yusaku battles against Hanoi in order to uncover the truth concerning an incident that happened to him years ago.

First impression of the VRAINS series is that the anime has a more mature theme much like the 5D's series, which in my opinion is a plus. So far the story is about the high school student Yuusaku who secretly works as a hacker fighting against the criminal hacking organisation "Knights of Hanoi" due to a yet unexplained background that involved these two. Duels are now carried out in a futuristic VR system called the VRAINS that allows players to manifest as an avatar inside the cyber realm.

The story so far is very well-paced and enjoyable - all the duels have had meaningful for the read more

Spring 2017 season is already over. With the return of the phenomenal Attack On Titan, to the so called ''Trash'' anime Eromanga-sensei, the animes last spring season was quite alright with the shows it offers to us.. But I was not expecting of a return of one of the most famous childhood animes we've been watched, though on this date, almost no one doesn't remember or even care about this collection of animes. That's right. The YuGiOh! franchise... As a fan of the franchise (I still am), Ive watched almost all of read more

Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS is the newest entry to the Yu-Gi-Oh! series and it has become an amazing anime. The main aspect is dueling within the Cyberse World constructed with LINK VRAINS program where everyone customizes their avatars and duel while the primary plot follows the fate of the Cyberse World and the connection between humans and AI similar to a videogame setting. The beautiful design and development of the protagonist Yusaku Fujiki (Playmaker) give him an epic dark justice character that differentiates him from any previous Yu-Gi-Oh! protagonist. The desings of the secondary characters is also really wonderful especially Takeru Homura (Soulburner), Skye Zaizen (Blue Angel) read more

Yugioh VRAINS taps into the older Yugioh fan brilliantly, while creating a compelling and interesting story-line that always keeps the viewer guessing.

When I think of "Yu-Gi-Oh!" I always think back to the original manga, and first decade of the franchise, DM, GX, and 5Ds. I think after 5Ds the direction of the franchise became a lot more light hearted, at least for the beginnings of Zexal and Arc-V which I could never really get into. However, VRAINS brilliantly recaptures what made me fall in love with this franchise. While the show is dark and realistic, it is also funny at times which makes for a read more
