Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS characters Go Onizuka and Aoi Zaizen

Today, producers of the upcoming Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS anime unveiled the designs of two new characters: Go Onizuka (left) and Aoi Zaizen.

Go Onizuka (鬼塚豪) is described as a rival of protagonist Yusaku Fujiki’s VR alter ego “Playmaker.” When Go Onizuka enters VR space, he uses the moniker “Go Onizuka” (Go鬼塚 — the English word “Go” takes the place of the kanji 豪, which is also pronounced “Go”).

Aoi Zaizen is Yusaku’s classmate. When she enters VR space, she is called “Blue Angel” and is a well-known charismatic duelist.

Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V’s final episode will air on Sunday, March 26. Of special note, Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS will not premiere in April as was previously announced. Instead, it will begin on an as yet unnamed date in May. In the meantime, beginning April 5, TV Tokyo will broadcast a special series titled “Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS Fully Dissected! Yu-Gi-Oh! Laboratory.” Each week, Japanese celebrities and personalities will discuss the appeal of the world of Yu-Gi-Oh! and the new rules of the card game. The show is intended to be a beginner’s introduction to the anime and game.

  1. I swear if the series bombed real hard for reals? Expect spinoff shows starring the Yugioh monsters to appear for now on! lol

    Even by Japan’s standers? This has NEVER happened before and I believe this Yugioh series will bite them in the ass later down the line.

    I just want an anime series starring the monsters of Yugioh lore.

    Don’t ask me why I post these two images? But headcanon theory is that they’re both related to a mother-daughter bonding! lol
