Episode 1: My name is Playmaker

The story takes place in “Den City” which has the latest network. There, “Sol Technology” manages the VR space “LINK VRAINS” where people duel all day. The protagonist Fujiki Yusaku, is a cool high school student who has excellent observation skills. To defeat “The Knights of Hanoi” that plots to destroy “LINK VRAINS”, he transforms into his avatar “Playmaker” and tries to duel, which he is unfamiliar with.

At the same time, the hacker with the same aim as Yusaku, Kusanagi Shouichi, found out that “Sol Technology” is desperately searching for a Mysterious Life Form. Yusaku finds out that “The Knights of Hanoi” are searching for the same Mysterious Life Form and is laying a trap on the network to capture it.
