Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS premiered in Japan on TV Tokyo and its affiliated networks last May. Crunchyroll later began streaming the series as it airs. Crunchyroll describes the story:

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".

Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS is the sixth television anime in the Yu-Gi-Oh! franchise. Masahiro Hosoda (Heroes ~Legend of Battle Disks~ , Nangoku Shounen Papuwa-kun) is directing the anime at GALLOP. Shin Yoshida and Ken'ichi Hara are returning from previous Yu-Gi-Oh! anime to work on series composition and character design, respectively. Masahiro Hikokubo is again handling the duel layout. Yūki Matsuoka (Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal, Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V) is serving as sound director, and Shinkichi Mitsumune (Yu-Gi-Oh!) is composing the music.
