That was certainly interesting.
First off, the new Link VRAINS has a Duel Links feel, although Duel Links uses rules extremely similar to Speed Duels in VRAINS to begin with, minus the Extra Monster Zones naturally.
Poor Jin, just started recovering and already has his soul stolen.
Neat to see one of the heads of SOL Technologies not representing themselves as a giant chess piece, although she is still named for one.
From the intro, and from the one kid that was following Playmaker's duel with the unknown guy, seems we'll have a lot of new characters.

Judgement Arrows, is this going to be a new class of Spell Card? Will we have a new icon next to [Spell Card] to indicate it's a Link Spell?
What I'm curious about is the fact that it has Link Markers on all 8 positions.
What good are the 3 bottom and 2 side ones? Does this mean future Link Spell Cards can be placed in a Monster Zone or Extra Monster Zone?
Maybe you can use these as a substitute for Link Monsters to create Extra Links.
Even crazier is the possibility that you could use Link Spells that point sideways to play a non-Pendulum Monster in a Spell & Trap Zone.
Or BOTH!
Imagine, if you will, filling all 5 Monster Card Zones, both Extra Monster Zones, and all 5 Spell & Trap Card Zones with Monsters that, unlike Pendulums, are actually being used as monsters.
That's potentially 12 monsters on your side of the field.
I actually hope that these Link Spells won't be able to put monsters in your Spell & Trap Card Zone and only act as substitute Link Markers to extend a Link.

... Yu-Gi-Oh is getting messy with the amount of new cards and rules.
What happened to my fun and simple game? :(

I'm REALLY loving the op and end theme!

So if Soulburner has an Ignis then I'm guessing the Ignis found the kids they were created from then....

I found the music video for the second ending and the music video ITSELF looks like it was literally made for VRAINS!

Oh, VRAINS, you have a lot of explaining you need to do.
What happened to Ai being the last of the Ignis?
Wasn't the ENTIRE POINT of the first story arc is that Ai was the last survivor of the Cyberse World and the last of the Ignis?
Didn't he copy the entirety of Cyberse World into his eye right as Revolver was about to destroy it, INCLUDING THE OTHER IGNIS?
How is it even possible for another duelist to have an Ignis if they were all in Cyberse World during Revolver's attack
and they were all saved by Ai along with Cyberse World?
That's already a plot hole, and I'm afraid they're going to fill it with "Oh, Flame [other Ignis] was out of Cyberse World during Revolver's attack."
It's going to be some nonsense reasoning like that even though the Ignis were literally using Cyberse World as an escape
from anyone on the network being able to find them so they could live in peace.

That's already bugging me and that's on top of still needing to explain why Bohman has no memory, yet still was stealing souls anyway somehow through a television.
Ugh, this is just annoying writing where there's more questions than answers, and just like the first season I feel like we're going to get unsatisfactory answers, or answers that lead to more questions and plot holes that never see the light of day again.

@Nash: If you're suggesting the six Ignis all survived and went to the kids that they were modeled after, then where was Spectre's Ignis?

Also, just re-watched the opening of episode 1 where they show Revolver's attack.
Revolver DID have 5 other Ignises sealed when Ai sealed away Cyberse World.
They even showed the Flame one that Soulburner had, so this is bothering me even more.
Either they got sealed away with Cyberse World when Ai captured it in his eye, or he only took Cyberse World and the other 5 would have been destroyed by Revolver because Revolver had the other 5 trapped.
Now it makes even LESS sense that Soulburner has his Ignis!

And just now realizing that there's 6 Ignis that represent the 6 Attributes in Yu-Gi-Oh.
Ai is Dark, Flame is of course Fire, and the others would have to be Light, Earth, Water, and Wind.
I know I saw a blue one and a green one for sure in that episode 1 opening.

Anyway, a mammoth of a post, but there is no possible logical way that Soulburner could have an Ignis.
He was literally trapped by Revolver, and if he wasn't copied with Cyberse World by Ai,
he had to be destroyed because Revolver wouldn't have let them go.
No matter what reason they come up with, it's going to be a terrible Deus Ex Machina and I know I won't be satisfied.

Not true.
Good cartoons satisfy me, and I had better expectations this time around.
Put it this way, I actually bothered to watch this show after the first episode. :D

Yay, Reincarnation Link Summon!
Why not make Link Summoning even easier?

*headdesk*

And also apparently now Jin Kusanagi's soul is just data, which is dumb.
He wasn't even connected to the network, how did it become data?
That's just cringy.
I know we already had the Anothers thing, but those people were all on VRAINS at least.

This is getting harder to watch, and we haven't even hit any explanation of how Soulburner has an Ignis yet.
I would feel SO refreshed if the next Yu-Gi-Oh series was just about kids playing card games.

I myself don't like reincarnation link summon.

Simply re-summoning the same monster isn't worth fanfare.

I thought it was a different monster at first too, but with a variant name.
But, no, sadly it was just a built in redo.
Can you imagine how abusable that'll be in real life if that rule is actually brought to the card game?
So much for once per turn effects.
It would be the most broken mechanic ever in the game if they did that.
