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.

It's only another Yu-gi-oh, That is the reason for make a different criticism...

All "Yu-gi-oh" animes involves a different theme. Yu☆Gi☆Oh! VRAINS have this theme "Let's take one step forward and try it!"
It's a very good theme to make a anime. But remember, new yugioh anime is only for money...
The story is not very good. But the anime have characters and duels typical of yugioh series. The anime art it's very good, and the OST is amazing... Yeah, another yugioh anime, not a really good anime, but the production it's as good as any yugioh...

PS: Why all Yu-gi-oh main characters have a strange hair?

Gonna stop at episode 31

This anime screws itself over from almost every 10-9 episode after an arc ends the very get go, but I'll try my best to state the problems.

It doesn't help to have a good chunk of this series to be consisting of recaps non-stop every 10-9 epsiode after an arc ends. The world building is also not very well done. Honestly, it's the garbage version of Yu-Gi-Oh! 5d's with things only worser. Where all they do is just pace is baddly.And reallly starts to get boring with an mini arc and no major one. At least 5d's made me feel for and 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

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
