Haru (ハル, Haru) is a character in the second season of the Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS anime. He works with Bohman towards their goal, and he is described as a mysterious boy who holds the key to the new plot.[1]



Haru's two VR forms.

Haru appears as a young boy with orange hair that has a yellow top that flicks up at the sides. His hair has three red highlights; two diamond shaped sections on the temples that almost seem to extend from his eyebrows, and curved section on his orange fringe. Like Bohman, he has orange eyes with yellow borders on the irises.

Haru has appeared in two different outfits within LINK VRAINS thus far. In the first, he wears a dark blue long-sleeved shirt with a white blazer with yellow accents, orange pants with yellow accents and the cuffs turned up just past the knees to reveal an aquamarine lining, a pink belt with a silver buckle and an aquamarine, diamond-shaped fastener, and white boots with pink soles. His second outfit is a more ornate military-style garb similar to those worn by Jin Kolter and Bohman; he wears a white mantle with a gold border and a red tip and green shoulderpads with a slight collar. Under this mantle he wears a long black coat with golden edges, red shoulders, and an orange belt. He also wears red gauntlets with golden cuffs, black boots, and white "flared" pants tucked into his boots.

As with all members of Lightning's organization, the Southern Cross star is prominent in Haru's design; his boots have yellow stars on the ankles, and his blazer has a larger star on the chest. His gauntlets, boots, and mantle over the heart bear it in his military garb.


The character's voice actor, Ryoko Shiraishi describes Haru as possessing lovely expressions, but also countless different types of feelings.


Haru's name may be a reference to HAL 9000/Hal from the science fiction film 2001: A Space Odyssey; a character named "Bowman" also appears in the film.


Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS[edit]

When Playmaker reached the area in which Bohman was detected for the last time, the latter (along with Haru) appeared on top of the statue of a soldier and was challenged by Playmaker. Bohman stated he wasn't after Ai, stating he would bring Playmaker to justice and make him pay for his crimes. Haru was watching the entire Duel, and was curious to see the "new power" given to Bohman. He was visibly surprised when Bohman forced one of Playmaker's counters, only to reveal he had already predicted it and proceeded to use the cards he really wanted to. After destroying all of Playmaker's monsters, Bohman revealed he was the original consciousness of one of the Lost Incident's victims, trapped outside his own body, and the one inside his real body was none other than Playmaker, showing as evidence the fact he was able to predict Playmaker's every action as a Duelist. Decided to have his body returned to him, Bohman vowed to win.[2]


Like Bohman, Haru plays a "Hydradrive" Deck. He claims that the Deck is different to his brother's and that he was the one that taught Bohman how to Duel.[3] While Speed Duelling he uses the Skill Marker's Portal to access "Judgment Arrows" from his Deck.
