    Animated Series “Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS” Story Introduction”
    There is a city where network systems have evolved: Den City(デンシティ ). In this city, with the advanced network technology developed by the corporation “SOL Technology”, a Virtual Reality space called “LINK VRAINS” has been developed, and in this VR Space people became excited over the latest way to Duel.

    However, in 『LINK VRAINS』, a mysterious hacker group that hacks via Dueling has appeared: ハノイの騎士 (The Knights of Hanoi). Their goal is to destroy the “AI World” known as “Cyberse” that exists somewhere in the depths of the Network.

    However, there is one Duelist who stands against the threat to 『LINK VRAINS』. His name is “Playmaker”. He has become famous in the Network World for crushing the “Knights of Hanoi” in fierce Duels, without mentioning his name. But the true identity of “Playmaker” is ordinary high school student “Fujiki Yusaku”, who pursues the “Knights of Hanoi” that appear in VRAINS in order to find out the truth of an incident that happened in the past.

    Gotta say, I love the plot already.
    I think it's the first time a Yugioh series has a well defined plot before even starting to air. I mean, we even know about the antagonist and their plans.

    I think Arc-V had a vague outline for the plot, but didn't tell the viewers because they wanted to Mystery Box it. By the end of the first month, we got episode 5, which was filled to the brim with foreshadowing.

    I do thing these Knights are going to be interesting, as long as it doesn't lead to a straight Villain of the Week situation.

    So it's kinda like a superhero story.

    "During the day Yusaku Fujiki is a normal student, but when the night falls he unleashes his alterego "The Playmaker". Protecting the city against the evil Knights of Hanoi."

    Ehh... it's ok. As long as the duels are good, i'm in.

    The first thing that came to my mind is the Tower of Hanoi puzzle. Mostly because, in that puzzle, position is important, just like with link summoning.

    And there goes any chance of a good female character

    Also, wasn't it stated that Yusaku wasn't actually that interested in dueling, Now he is a card game Anti-terrorist?

    to be fair, that "Destory the virtual world" plan is so horribly generic there isn't much point in hiding it

    now WHY they want to do it, is the question.

    Now lets just hope it's executed well......
