April 2017 —
Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS is the sixth Yu-Gi-Oh! anime series and the fifth main spin-off series. It will begin airing in Japan in April 2017, following the end of Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V. Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS will air in Japan starting Wednesdays in April, at 6:25 Japanese Standard Time.
The series will star a new protagonist, Yusaku Fujiki, and takes place in a high-school setting, featuring Virtual Reality Duels in a cyberspace constructed with the latest technology called Link VRAINS. In this new kind of Duel, the players transform and Duel on some form of hoverboards. As with the previous spin-offs, it focuses on (and introduces) a new type of Summoning - this time, Link Summoning.
The sixth series focuses on Yusaku Fujiki, a high-schooler and a hacker who doesn't like standing out at school. However, he gets drawn into encounters with people as he tries out Dueling for once. The show's theme is "Take a step forward, and try!", on the premise that kids should start to try things out instead of just giving up at the first try due to being overwhelmed by information.
