It’s been a while since I heard a KIMERU song. Not since Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters’ 6th Opening. This is pretty damn good.

I’m really beginning to love the new arc of VRAINS. It’s starting to get up there with 5D’s and DM as my favourites of the YGO series. I just hope Soulburner doesn’t become a Johan Andersen-like character that throws all other protagonists to the wayside, because I like Onizuka and Blue Angel as main protagonists.

But you came here to listen to a song, so here:

Well, there’ve been a lot of good themes released recently. So much so that I’m kind of spoiled for a SOTW this week. Black Clover’s new OP or ED? Both are good. But VRAINS also got a new OP and ED for the new season, and its new ED is the song that’s been stuck in my head for a good 2 or 3 weeks now, so that’ll be the one getting the SOTW treatment.

I really like this theme actually. The guitar line is cool, the bassline (this matters, as I’m mainly a bassist) is also great, and the lyrics have a nice rhythm and melody to them. Might be the best VRAINS theme so far? It’s definitely the best VRAINS ED theme so far, at least.

And here it is:

This week’s SOTW is yet another Yu-Gi-Oh! theme (because hey, I like Yu-Gi-Oh!), and it is the new ending theme to VRAINS.

I’m in two minds about this one. On the one hand, it’s a good song. On the other hand, Believe In Magic (the 1st ending) is better, in my opinion. But, again, on the other hand, I had 24 episodes of Believe In Magic and I got tired of it, so I welcome the change.

To summarise: it’s a decent theme. Not the best YGO! theme but certainly not the worst.

…This’ll be quick. I’ve had one day off in the middle of what is essentially two weeks’ worth of shifts. This is now my day of reprieve, so I want to do as little as possible. This includes typing, as my everything hurts.

I like the ending of VRAINS better than the opening. But that’s just me. I’ll leave it here though, for you to discern for yourselves.

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:
