Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS's Japanese voice actors posing for a photo after their final recording session

Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS will air its final episode next week on September 25. Today, the cast released a group photo from their final recording session and discussed their favorite memories from working on the anime.

Shouya Ishige (Playmaker) cherishes the relationship his character had with Ai, especially how this relationship changes in the pivotal moments of the show. He’s very happy to get to meet his character, this series, and everyone who worked on it.

Takahiro Sakurai (Ai) enjoyed meeting his character and his castmates. He felt so much passion from Yu-Gi-Oh! fans and is pleased to be able to take part in such a historic franchise.

Yuki Kaji (Soulburner) found it tough to choose just one favorite memory. Soulburner’s first duel, fighting alongside Playmaker, meeting and parting with Flame, and getting to settle the score with Revolver are all unforgettable for him. Plus, he cherishes the time he spent with his castmates — having lunch together, birthday and wedding celebrations, his bond with Ishige, and the kind words he exchanged with Sakurai.

Subaru Kimura (Kusanagi) enjoyed having lunch with his castmates every week after recording and growing closer to them through their conversations. He hopes that viewers, from watching the show, felt these same emotional ties that he felt with his castmates.

Shunsuke Takeuchi (Revolver) is happy to have met so many people, especially Ishige and his rivals. His time on the show has been an irreplaceable experience thanks to the wonderful cast, staff, and Yu-Gi-Oh! fans.

Viewers will get to hear all of the major human characters’ voices one last time in episode 120. TV Tokyo’s summary of the final episode shows that all of them are included in the cast list in this final episode.

Canada Gets Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS English Dub Debut

Ai is surprised when Playmaker activates a monster effect in Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS episode 36

4K Media’s English dub of Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS is about to get its television debut. And just as with Yu-Gi-Oh! ARC-V, Canada will be the first English-speaking market to receive the show. The Ontario-based TV Passport television listings website shows that Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS will premiere on the Teletoon network on September 1 at 1:00 pm ET. It also lists episode 2 premiering on September 2 in the same time slot.

Canada is one of only a handful of countries that does not receive Crunchyroll’s Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS simulcast. But maybe Canadian fans of Yu-Gi-Oh! can take some solace knowing that they are once again the first (and as of yet, the only) country to get the newest anime series dubbed in English.

As of this writing, 4K Media itself has not formally announced this English television premiere of Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS, nor has it announced a release date or network for the United States.

Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS Adds New Characters, Cast in April

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).
