Show premiered in May 2016; Ahiru no Sora takes over show's Wednesday time slot

The October issue of Gakken's Animedia magazine confirmed on Tuesday that the Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS television anime will end with its 120th episode on September 25. The Ahiru no Sora anime will take over the show's Wednesday 6:25 p.m. time slot on TV Tokyo beginning on October 2.

Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS premiered in Japan on TV Tokyo and its affiliated networks in May 2016. 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) and Katsuya Asano have directed the anime at GALLOP. Shin Yoshida and Ken'ichi Hara returned from previous Yu-Gi-Oh! anime to supervise the series scripts and design the characters, respectively. Masahiro Hikokubo again handles the duel layout. Yūki Matsuoka (Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal, Yu-Gi-Oh! Arc-V) serves as sound director, and Shinkichi Mitsumune (Yu-Gi-Oh!) composes the music.
