Get into the Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS in 2018


Trading card games on hover boards? That could only be the next generation of Yu-Gi-Oh!. Step into the VRAINS with 4K Media’s latest anime series, Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS. The first 49 episode season of the new series will start launching internationally in 2018. The show delves into the world of technology with a virtual reality theme that’ll be sure to shake things up.

The latest in the long running Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise began broadcast in Japan on TV Tokyo last May. The series became the first entry in the property to get an official ongoing simulcast on anime streaming service Crunchyroll.

Here’s the Japanese opening credits:

With advances in cutting-edge technology, duelists worldwide plug into LINK VRAINS to compete in fast-paced competition. But this cyberspace is under attack by a team of nefarious hackers determined to destroy the virtual realm.

VRAINS joins the ever burgeoning Yu-Gi-Oh! empire. Initially a manga series by Kazuki Takahashi that ran in Japan’s Weekly Shonen Jump between 1996 and 2004, the franchise has since inspired 7 earlier anime television productions and 4 films. Naturally, the series has also spawned countess trading cards and video games from Konami.

The preceding Yu-Gi-Oh! series, Arc-V, is currently airing on Teletoon in Canada and Nicktoons in the United States. While the Canadian broadcaster is well into the show’s final season, the US broadcast has been far more sluggish. Despite debuting the first season in 2015, Nicktoons’ premiere of the first season’s finale will happen this Sunday, December 17th between 8-9AM eastern. Arc-V concluded in Japan earlier this year.
