THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Cool, it's that biker girl. Glad to see that she got more screen time and meets Yuusaku/Playmaker face to face.

Felt more like a buildup episode though considering the circumstances though.
Poor Blue Angel...still out cold.

I knew that the Blue Angel would be Ema in disguise trying to lure Playmaker.Did Not expect Akira to meet both Yusaku and Playmaker face to face.Good to see Ema getting more screentime and Akira taking some action.I didn't expect Akira to meet Revolver as well.I think Akira would admire or respect Yusaku since he was grateful to Yusaku but hates Playmaker for hurting Aoi.

Well I wonder how long till Akira finds out Yusaku is Playmaker. After the hospital time, only a mater of time till he puts two and two together.

So Ema is a super hacker, if she had goal beyond money, she could cause that damage, very OP.

So we have Yusaku vs Revolver already, this series is moving fast. And after Aoi is revived, I wonder how that will effect her character, as well as Yusaku and Akira's character.

Great set up episode. It looks like we're getting Yusaku vs Revolver already, and I'm perfectly fine with that, especially after this episode managed to establish high stakes for the upcoming duel. As for the result, I honestly have no idea. I initially thought Revolver would win their first encounter, but with Ignis and Aoi on the line I'm not so sure now. It only adds to my hype towards the duel.

It was also nice to see Yusaku show care to things outside of the Knights of Hanoi. I look forward to seeing him open up as the series progresses. Overall, another really great episode. Aside from the couple of episodes spent on Go, I've been loving Vrains. Hopefully they can keep it up.

Hmm, Ignis did detect Hanoi's presence in Ema, does that mean she secretly work for Hanoi too? She's probably the kind of character that will be playing on every side that is willing to pay or something.
That's not Sakura.

Nice set up episode.

The name mistake in the subs made me laugh. xD

Looks like Aoi is in a coma because of a Hanoi Virus. Speaking of which someone remind me how Link VRAINS is connected to the physical body?

Zaizen sure decided to do a number on Yuusaku, at least he felt bad about it when he learned the truth.
Revolver vs Yuusaku is up next, this should be exciting.

This is one of the few instance on the whole franchise when I don't know how the outcome will be. The stake is too high for Yusaku to lose but beating Revolver on early stage like this is not an option either. Getting draw seems to be far-fetched too so my bet goes with the duel interrupted in the middle like always.

I think you're right. Akira did mention that she was hired by someone else.

My memory is vague, but I think it was said that if something bad happens to you in Vrains, it will lead to flashbacks irl which can cause mental damage. I don't know how much sense that makes but whatever.

edit: But regarding why Aoi is in a coma, the virus trapped her avatar in Link Vrains so she can't log out. The flashbacks probably played a role as well.

He has to defeat Revolver now.
Akira really liked to torture poor Yuusaku, it was all for his sister though.

Since I suck at explaining this is taken from TVTrope.

Taking too much damage in Link VRAINS will have adverse effect on a Duelist's physical brain that could potentially make them a brain-dead vegetable. An average duel might not cause that much damage, but falling off a D-Board in a Speed Duel could prove to be fatal.

Yeah this is what I thought. I guess this does make sense in theory. It does lead me to question why the government haven't stepped in due to how dangerous Vrains can be. Anyway thanks for sharing.

I'm really looking forward to the Playmaker vs. Revolver duel, although its blatantly obvious that it will end with no result. My only gripe is that they're apparently going to waste 4 episodes for it.

I'm pretty surprised how consistently plot focused vrains has been. I'm sure the filler will kick in eventually but its nice how focused on the important cast members it has been instead of getting sidetracked by literal whos.

Did they come up with the title "Vrains" through a typo on the keyboard? V and b are right next to each other.

The title is 100% intentional. Vrains is an acronym and it stands for Virtual Reality Artificial Intelligence Network System.

What are you guys even saying? Ema with hanoy? Ema work for Chess piece

Whole VRAINS turn into a trap just for Playmaker... thats really overkill
If your VRAINS's avatar got virus you re done for. hacker or whoever evil also can create a program to mind control all people on VRAINS and take over the world

There is no "V" on japanese just like there is no "X"

Ema works for whoever pays her. So it isn't that far-fetched to think she may work for the knights in the future.

I don't remember Ema said that
I know Ema's job more or less are selling info and hanoy can also buy it. but i think something like that will happen in 20 or 100 more episode

From the leaked previews. While there are no summaries for 11, 12 and 13 yet, the episode titles heavily implies that the duel continues until 12, with 13 being the aftermath. https://dueldeegao.wordpress.com/2017/07/05/ep-9-13-staff-and-titles/

with aoi and ignis in stake i not sure what the dual results will be since put aoi aside losing ignis here will be too early draw is far fetched results and wining the rival so early i dont think will happen

Not a bad setup episode.

Aoi is still in a coma because of Hanoi's Virus.

Playmaker vs Revolver should be fun.

Aoi in a coma, reminds me a bit of 5D's when Aki was in one after her duel with Misty.

I am really liking all this dark stuff that is happening.

Awesome, Revolver VS Yusaku next time.

So... Is noone gonna comment on how freaky Ignis looked as he was eating Hanoi's virus?
There's no such thing as "perfection" in this world.


Except for Fate Kaleid.


I mean, come on. It's Fate Kaleid.

The sub got that wrong. Ignis said "she doesn't have any traces of Hanoi", the exact opposite.

I thought it was an interesting episode! really touched into some dark elements, however i cant wait to see the next few episodes of the duel, as i feel we are leading to huge secrets being uncovered!
