The first episode of season 3 basically recaps season 2 if that helps. Otherwise...
All in all, Lightning, the light ignis created a humanoid AI named Bohman for the sake of merging humans and AI (that includes the ignis) into one being, him.
Lightning was the cause of practically every bad thing you could think of and was confirmed to be the source of all evil and how Kogami came to the conclusion that the Ignis will eventually destroy humanity. This info was all based from Lightning's data because he actually has a massive inferiority complex.
Blue Maiden beats Hal (Bohman's brother). Soulburner beats Windy. Playmaker beats Kusanagi who had no choice because Lightning had his brother hostage. Lightning beats (actually draws but did an butt-pull) Revolver.
Playmaker and the gang go after Bohman who made a seperate version of Link Vrains and one by one Bohman cleans house with Blue Maiden and Soulburner, sucks their ignis up into himself, and does it all before gunning for Playmaker. When it came down to Bohman and Yusaku, Bohman started mind snatching peeps left and right from Link Vrains. He did this to combine all life into one (him) and it also allowed him to make massive butt pulls and summon a link 5 to beat Playmaker's butt.
The rest of the Knights of Hanoi along with Akira and Ghost Girl tried to sabotage Bohmans mind snatching and thus his butt pulling, AI also went into Bohman to save his fellow Ignis. It was too late for them but they gave the last of their power to AI who then came back to Playmaker and gave him a link 5 and beat Bohman.
Ending it off, Bohman frees everyone but all the other ignis besides AI are "dead" or "gone" or however you wanna put it for A.I.s . :P
>Ai now understands how Yusaku feels everytime he blurts out something.
>Roboppi is adorable. Roboppi is life.
>Queen was literally mind ravaged by two young men who snuck into her bedroom.
^^^The bar has been raised^^^
>@Ignistars(or sters?) along with it's field spell is a deck filled with a land of false mini baby ignis that focus on multy extra deck summoning, reviving from the grave only to create a new ED summon.
>Queen's deck is... Yeah... Didn't expect to see that but I knew she was done the moment I noticed what they were...
>Was...Was Dark Knight Ignister's name changed because of the title Dark Knight? Is the copyright that strong? :P
That another Ai shows up, like the one that went into the Neuron Link shows up and rejoins Yusaku. Either that, or that the current Ai is infected or a fake, cause Linguriboh is just the fake Linkuriboh that showed up in the cardboard replica Ignis world.
>Big Bro Zaizen be like, " HALP! ME! I'll pay ya'll as many bitcoin as you want! Just HALP MEH!"
> Bruh if my own closest AI AND personal robot announce themselves as big time phantom thieves, I'D BE FREAKING OUT WITH EMOTIONS. Playmaker's lucky he didn't just drop dead at that moment, thanks to his stern demeanor and all.
>Aoi and Yusaku just shaking hands is actually more than enough for me. I respect that.
>This is actually gonna be a pretty lenghthy arc in itself, huh? Didn't expect this kind of arc and pacing so early.
>Ya'll know DAMN well AI's gonna have a duel with Go at some point in this season. Maybe not this first arc but somewhere in the season. And ma boi just came back from rehab too...
>Roboppi and Ai are legit cyber pirates with that Linguribo ship... Like, we out there... Pfftt!! XD
>Roboppi continues to be best roboi.
But no, for real, I'm so curious for why Ai is doing what he's doing.
> Ah nooooo, Ai showed Roboppi nothing but humanity's dark side! This makes Roboppi a glorified antag with his viewpoint on humanity!! NOOOOO!!!!
> But even so, Roboppi is still best robo.
> Emma dueling with her big bro is nice. Like, really nice. Too bad there's a high chance they're gonna get SWEEPED!
> Knights of Hanoi getting molly-wopped OFF SCREEN.
> Ai already starting it off with stating that he's following Lightning's ideals strikes me as odd. I'm already calling him out as a liar. There must be a different reason.
> Pandor's design is weird with that extremely flat chest... But at the same time I'm not exactly bothered by it. What I will say though is that Revolver has no taste and doesn't know how to design the perfect Ai waifu. Makes sense since he does hate Ais... Or at least sentient ones.
> I was right! Go's gonna get WRECKED! But this really sucks for him cuz he just got outta rehab! QAQ
All in all, what I gathered from this is that eventually (of course) Ai will get to Aoi's big bro and suck his brain juices turning him into a vegie brain. I believe this is shown in the opening where you see Aoi and her bro (forgive me for forgetting his name so fast) seem to be dueling together.
Secondly, it seems we may never get to see the usual Vrains world again. In the opening, Ai and Yusaku duel and the background has planets and such. This seems to be the very place that we are seeing in this current arc. Or who knows, perhaps the op only mirrors this one arc and things will evolve later on.
C-Z... it's one thing to mention chest sizes and it's another to go after someone with perfectly acceptable taste but to say them both in the same timeframe is a real "swung the golf club into my face" thing.
Maybe it's how I worded it XD. When I look at Pandor, it's not just the chest area but the whole upper body looks a hell of a lot more masculine when compared to the face and voice. THAT'S what I meant. XP
