6th Yu-Gi-Oh! anime premieres spring, features transforming protagonist, VR duels

The official website of Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS, the upcoming sixth anime in the Yu-Gi-Oh! television anime franchise, revealed the designs and visual for the anime on Monday.

The anime's main character Yūsaku Fujiki (pictured below) possesses a cool and sharp mind, and has the skills to be a hacker. He excels at quickly judging the situation at any place, and determining the thoughts of whomever he is talking to. His ace monster is named "Decode Talker," who wields a giant sword. Yūsaku transforms from his school uniform when he enters the VR space for duels.

In the VR space, he has the handle of "Playmaker." When he enters the VR space, he transforms, and he rides a board while dueling.

The site also revealed a design for what it labeled a "mysterious creature."

Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS will premiere this spring on TV Tokyo. The theme for the new work is "Let's take one step forward and try it!" Yūsaku hates standing out, and at his school he doesn't. However, Yūsaku starts meeting others through duels, and starts moving forward.

The fifth and ongoing anime in the franchise, Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V, premiered in Japan in April 2014. The series premiered on TV in Canada in August 2015, and premiered in the United States on the Nicktoons channel in February 2016. Crunchyroll began streaming the series worldwide outside of Asia in November.
