Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS gets English dub debut in Canada


Canadian broadcaster Teletoon is getting the jump of the English-language debut of Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS. The new anime series is set to air Saturdays and Sundays at 1 PM, with episode 1, “Link into the VRAINS,” set for September 1st.

The fifth Yu-Gi-Oh! spinoff series is once again produced by NAS and first began airing in Japan on TV Tokyo in May 2017. 4K Media ran the first dubbed episode as part of the Yu-Gi-Oh! The Movie: The Pyramid of Light theatrical re-release earlier in the year.

Here’s a series synopsis:

In “Den City” where the latest network has developed, people were dueling day and night in the VR world called “LINK VRAINS” managed by SOL Technology Inc. The main character, Yusaku Fujiki is a quiet high school student with a great insight. He has been dueling, transforming himself into his avatar “Playmaker”, to battle the “The Knights of Hanoi” that plots to destroy “LINK VRAINS”.

Notably, Canada is one of a select handful of countries blocked from Crunchyroll’s simulcast of the show’s Japanese version. This is the first time Canadians will be able to officially watch Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS beyond the aforementioned theatrical preview.

Meanwhile, in the United States, Nicktoons’ run of the prior Yu-Gi-Oh! entry, Arc-V, will hit episode 133, “A Father’s Finale” on the same day Teletoon debut VRAINS. The American channel skipped the show’s second season earlier this year. Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V has 148 episodes. Teletoon’s run of the show concluded on June 22nd.
