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.

Out of all the YGO series I have watched, this series would have to be the most UNDERRATED out of the lot. I studied Media when I was in College and Uni, and this anime gets its points almost spot on. The plot twists were very well done, and it was the first time in ages I couldn't predict them. The cinematography was also handled really well. However, I scored it nine out of ten for a few reasons:

It does contain quite a few filler episodes, which does feel like the episode is a waste of time to watch. However, once the story gets back ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (50/120 eps)
i don't know about everyone else but the main character is extremely boring and uninteresting the supporting characters aren't as bad but it still ruins the show
i know for sure everyone hated the recaps and the hideous character designs
they had some interesting plot points but were badly executed/juggled that made them lame like how their way of drawing the card they need to win is through some code storm that you can grab really strong cards once you're low, but its way too drawn out and takes forever, it also gets really stale. they removed some cool characters, i didn't watch all of it to ...

WARNING To explain some of my problems with this show it's almost impossible for me to not spoil anything also I HAVE to compare this show to it's predecessor for context on this show's many problems because they were the direct result of trying not to repeat that show's many problems

Ok So Arc-V which was supposed to be the show that proved anyone who said "they should have stopped after DM/GX/5DS" wrong only for it to crash and burn in a way that still baffles me in how they managed to fuck it up to this day. Why am I telling you about Arc-V ...
