Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS character Takeru Homura and his avatar Soulburner

Four new characters are joining the Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS anime in April! That’s the word from the official Japanese Yu-Gi-Oh! news website YU-GI-OH.jp, which today introduced the characters and their voice actors.

First up is Takeru Homura, played by Yuki Kaji (Shoto Todoroki in My Hero Academia, Eren Jaeger in Attack on Titan). Homura, pictured above left, is a boy wearing the same school uniform as Yusaku. In Link VRAINS, he transforms into the fiery avatar Soulburner.

Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS character Flame

Accompanying Homura is a new Ignis AI character named Flame, voiced by Taku Yashiro (Battle Beast in Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V, Naoto Azuma/Tiger Mask in Tiger Mask W). Although its name is pronounced like the English word “flame,” the kanji making up his name means “without a vision” or “no revelatory dream.”

Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS characters Boman and Haru

Boman (romanized name is not official), pictured above left, is a new duelist with a mysterious aura. He is voiced by Kenji Matsuda (Zebra in Toriko).

And last but not least is Haru (romanized name is not official), pictured above right, a perplexing boy who tags along with Boman. Haru is played by Ryoko Shiraishi (Hayate Ayasaki in Hayate the Combat Butler, Asuka Kazama in the Tekken video game series).

“Psst, it’s back…”

Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V has returned to Tubi TV! All 49 episodes of season 1, English dubbed, are available now on the video streaming network. Watch it for free on the web or on any of Tubi TV’s numerous apps.

Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V made its first appearance on Tubi TV in late June 2017, but was suddenly removed less than a month later. Although the links to the episodes remained on Tubi TV’s website afterward, attempting to play the episodes resulted in an error message, and the show did not appear when searching or browsing Tubi TV’s catalog. Until now!

The English dub of Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V is also available on Hulu.

Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V Manga Volume 3 Available Now

March 6, 2018 at 12:00 pm | Posted in ARC-V, Yu-Gi-Oh! | Leave a comment

Cover of Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V, Volume 3, from VIZ Media, digital edition

Out today from VIZ Media is Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V, Volume 3: “Swinging Pendulums of Destiny!!” This newest graphic novel collects chapters 14 through 19 originally published in Weekly Shonen Jump. Pick it up for $6.99 for the digital edition or $9.99 for the print.

In this volume, Yuya Sakaki finally regains consciousness back at his hideout after a tough duel. But his downtime is short-lived as Reiji Akaba suddenly shows up, and the pair disappear underground for a long and dangerous duel. Yuya will surely need help from his counterparts and some new dueling tricks if he wants to best the president of the Leo Corporation. As the duel progresses, the history between these two mysterious characters is slowly revealed. What is their connection to Genesis Omega Dragon and the cryptic Adam Factor?

Bonus content in this volume includes early design sketches and comments from artist Naohito Miyoshi of Futoshi, Ayu, Tatsuya, and Eve. Some of the designs look pretty different compared to the final versions! The print volume also includes an Ultra Rare card — D/D/D Destiny King Zero Laplace, Reiji Akaba’s boss monster who makes its debut in Scale 17. This card is only available in the book’s initial print run while supplies last, so don’t miss it.

But the best part of this book might be the comment from duel coordinator Masahiro Hikokubo: “Reiji’s D/D/D is an abbreviation for Different Dimension Demon! It doesn’t stand for Duel Daisuki Desu (I Love Duels) or Dondon Detekuru Dodekai Monster (Huge Monsters Show Up One After Another)!”

I don’t know about you but I am a-okay with these alternate meanings!

Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V, Scale 31: ‘Satisfaction and Resignation!’

February 26, 2018 at 2:00 pm | Posted in ARC-V, Yu-Gi-Oh! | Leave a comment

Yuri proclaiming that he and Yuya's other counterparts will always be there to help him in Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V manga chapter 31

Sora Shiunin’s most deadly monster, Dangerous Frightfur Nightmary, has destroyed Yuri’s Starving Venemy Dragon. Shiunin mocks Yuri, confident in his Nightmary’s immense 5,900 attack points. Yuri Pendulum Summons Yuya’s three Odd-Eyes Dragons — Phantom, Persona, and Mirage. He attempts to use Persona’s special effect to block Nightmary’s attack-boosting powers. But Shiunin is ready for him with Nightmary’s own effect; by banishing a Frightfur unit from his extra deck, Nightmary can no longer be targeted by effects.

Yuri is annoyed by the outcome, but is ready with his own counter. He plays Polymerization, fusing Yuya’s three Odd-Eyes Dragons.

“This is my trump card! Or rather, our trump card!” exclaims Yuri. “Come forth, triple Odd-Eyes Ultimate Fusion Dragon! Starving Venemy Lethal Dose Dragon!!!”

Yuri activates Lethal Dose Dragon’s effect to negate all of his enemy monsters’ effects, but Shiunin laughs it off. Once again, Shiunin removes another Frightfur unit from his extra deck to prevent Nightmary from being targeted.

The two duelists continue their attempts to one-up the other, with Yuri setting off Traps to destroy Nightmary and Shiunin foiling Yuri’s attempts with his own Traps.

Yuri looks over at his Starving Venemy Dragon now in the Pendulum zone. It’s pulsating. It’s almost time, he thinks to himself.

Yuri orders Lethal Dose Dragon to attack Nightmary. But with only 2,500 attack points, how will it stand up to Nightmary’s 5,900? Shiunin sends Nightmary to kill the Dragon, but she stops short in her tracks. Shiunin looks up at her and is aghast by what he sees. Grotesque blood vessels swell out of Nightmary’s face as she trembles and begins to keel over.

Yuri reveals that his Dragons’ poisons have infected Nightmary. Whenever a card leaves the field, both Starving Venemy Dragon and Starving Venemy Lethal Dose Dragon put a Venemy counter on each monster. Then, during battle, all monsters that aren’t Venemy monsters lose 100 attack points for each counter.

Shiunin gasps, his confident smirk now gone from his face. Shiunin thought he was saving Nightmary by cleverly parrying Yuri’s card effects, but the more cards they played, the more she actually weakened. Now, Nightmary has only 1,200 attack points remaining.

Yuri uncovering Sora Shiunin's lies in Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V manga chapter 31

Yuri, calm and collected, tells Shiunin an uncomfortable truth: he’s doesn’t actually care for his sister Miu any longer, does he? Shiunin is incensed.

Why is Shiunin here dueling, asks Yuri. After all, his contract with G.O.D. lets him live his life with Miu over and over again, as he wished.

“Sometimes, ‘satisfaction’ is merely ‘resignation,'” states Yuri. “You got tired of sharing your sister’s suffering and gave up on staying with her! You have had your fill of living with your sister! That’s why your contract with G.O.D. ended!!”

Sora Shiunin — a young man who spent an eternity beside his sister. Who watched her suffer and succumb to her illness innumerable times. Who realized that there was nothing he could for her. Who realized that this life he lived was all for naught. Who decided that he had had enough…

“It’s time for you to notice that the baseness of your own heart has transformed your sister into that monster!” Yuri asserts, pointing at Nightmary.

Shiunin looks at Nightmary bewilderedly, her face filled with suffering and her body wilting from the poison. That is Miu?

Yuri reveals one more effect of Lethal Dose Dragon; it gains 100 attack points for each Venemy counter on the field, powering up to 7,500. It attacks Nightmary.


This is a little upsetting. I sympathized with Sora Shiunin and wanted more for him. I hoped for the best for him and his sister. But in the end, Sora’s selfishness is on full display. And if there’s anything that we’ve learned from Yu-Gi-Oh! baddies, it’s that those with dark, selfish hearts won’t succeed. Too bad for him.

But how about that Yuri? What a good boy. Three cheers for Yuri! Once again, the handsome one proves that he is a brilliant mind and able to see the truth in people’s hearts. He’s a cunning strategist as well, never giving up even though Sora countered all of his attempts to target Nightmary.

Before Yuri attacked Sora, he asked him where he thinks souls go after they are abandoned by G.O.D. If this is really the end of Sora Shiunin, whatever happens to him next, I hope he doesn’t suffer. He has suffered so much already and it seems like it would be cruel for it to continue.
