Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS Introduces Rival, Classmate CharactersMarch 21, 2017 at 6:00 am | Posted in Japanese, VRAINS, Yu-Gi-Oh! | 1 Comment
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.
