Following on from my last SOTW featuring the first OP of Re:Creators, it just so happens the second OP was also released and you can definitely call me a fan. Enough so that I actually tweeted the opening line of the song which got a like from the vocalists so thank you very much if you’re reading this! With that in mind, I can’t not blog the second OP as well, here is sh0ut by Sawano Hiroyuki feat. Tielle & Gemie.

This week’s SOTW is a Yu-Gi-Oh! theme again, yes. But this time it’s VRAINS’ 1st Opening. And it’s by the same guy who sang the 2012 JoJo series’ 1st opening, so of course it’s a good song.

So, here’s my two cents about the series so far: I like the premise of a virtual world MMO where all the series’ dueling happens (in fact, I had a similar idea around the time 5D’s was aired for a fanfic that would use that virtual MMO element). The series’ tone and mood is something I can really get behind, being similar to 5D’s’ mood (which I’ve said before is my favourite Yu-Gi-Oh! series), and the new summon mechanic is being used well, in my opinion.

The Link Monsters aren’t always a duel-ender (though they usually are), as they have been used as a means to an end to summon something stronger, or to combo together. I prefer this as I hate the over-reliance on one monster and it’s upgraded forms to end duels (looking at DM, GX, 5D’s, ZEXAL and ARC-V here), but we still have loads of episodes to go, so we’ll see.

The main character, Yuusaku Fujiki, is much more of an anti-hero than previous protagonists, which is a plus, as the heroes of YGO! were getting extremely “samey”, which was stagnating the series, to be honest. The rest of the protagonists are likable (although we only have Aoi Zaizen and Gou Onizuka as protagonist duelists at the moment) and the antagonists, Revolver and the Knights of Hanoi, are very much cool-looking enemies. So yeah, I’m positive about it.

Anyway, I’ve been talking way too long, so here’s the opening theme, in all it’s glory:
