With the new upcoming Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS anime coming to Japan soon, more information on the plot and characters of the series have come to light.

According to ASCII -- via The Organization -- the new VRAINS plot synopsis reveals two organizations the series protagonist, Yusaku, will have to contend with. You know at least one of them will be the antagonist for at least the first season.

Here’s the plot synopsis for VRAINS.

In Den City, a city that has developed its Network System, a certain company called “SOL Technology Inc.”, who with their advanced network technology, has constructed a Virtual Reality space called “LINK VRAINS”. In “LINK VRAINS”, a mysterious group of hackers called “The Knights of Hanoi” have appeared, who hack systems using Duels.

There is one Duelist who stands against the might of their threat. His name is “Playmaker”. “Playmaker”‘s true identity is that of a certain high-school student, “Fujiki Yusaku”, who struggles to find out the truth of what happened in the past. And amid this struggle, Yusaku manages to capture a mysterious AI Program being sought after by both “SOL Technology Inc.” and “The Knights of Hanoi”. In doing so, the gears of fate begin to turn… …

The true identity of this mysterious AI. That is the real goal of the “Knights of Hanoi” in “LINK VRAINS”. And the truth of Yusaku’s past… All the answers lie within “LINK VRAINS”!!

From the synopsis it would seem that Yusaku will have to combat with both the Knights of Hanoi and SOL Tech to find this mysterious AI program, but do one or both organizations have evil intentions?

The above synopsis does give the new Yu-Gi-Oh! anime a sense of maturity and the conflict Yusaku will come across is intriguing.

Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS is set to premiere in Japan in May.
