"Once Upon A Time", known as "Angel With Blue Tears" in the Japanese version, is the thirty-third episode of the Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS anime. It first aired in Japan on December 27, 2017, became available with official subtitles via Crunchyroll on January 10, 2018, and aired in Canada on December 22, 2018.

Blue Angel launches a series of attacks against Specter with her "Trickstars", but her attacks didn't work, since Specter is protected by his "Sunavalon". Blue Angel then uses her deadly combo. However, a sinister smile dashes across Specter's face...

Featured Duel: Blue Angel vs. Specter[edit]

Duel continues from the previous episode.

Blue Angel has 4000 LP and controls no cards. Specter has 4000 LP and controls "Sunavalon Dryas" (0/↓) in the Extra Monster Zone.

Turn 1: Specter
The effect of "Sunavalon Dryas" prevents it from being targeted for attacks, but does not prevent Blue Angel from attacking Specter directly. Specter Sets a card.

Turn 2: Blue Angel
Blue Angel's hand contains two copies of "Trickstar Lycoris", "Trickstar Candina", "Trickstar Light Stage", "Trickstar Light Arena", and "Trickstar Treat". Blue Angel Normal Summons "Trickstar Candina" (1800/400). As "Candina" was Normal Summoned, Blue Angel activates its effect, adding a "Trickstar" card from her Deck to her hand. She adds "Trickstar Reincarnation". Blue Angel activates the Field Spell "Trickstar Light Stage", adding a "Trickstar" monster from her Deck to her hand. She adds "Trickstar Lilybell". As "Lilybell" was added to Blue Angel's hand except by drawing it, she activates its effect, Special Summoning it (800/2000). Blue Angel activates the Field Spell "Trickstar Light Arena". Blue Angel activates the effect of "Light Arena", targeting a Set card in Specter's Spell & Trap Zone, and while "Light Arena" is in the Field Zone, that Set card cannot be activated until the End Phase, and Specter must activate it during the End Phase or else it is returned to the hand. She targets Specter's Set card. Blue Angel activates the effect "Trickstar Lycoris" in her hand, revealing it, then targeting a different "Trickstar" monster she controls to Special Summon it, then return that monster to the hand. She targets "Candina". Blue Angel activates the effect of a second copy of "Lycoris" in her hand, targeting "Candina", Special Summoning "Lycoris" (1600/1200), then returning "Candina" to her hand. The effect of the first copy of "Lycoris" resolves, and it is Special Summoned (1600/1200). Blue Angel sets two copies of "Lycoris" in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Trickstar Holly Angel" (2000/↙↘) to the Extra Monster Zone. As Blue Angel Link Summoned a "Trickstar" monster, she activates the effect of "Light Arena", targeting a "Trickstar" monster in her GY that was used as its material and Special Summoning it. She targets and Special Summons "Lycoris" (1600/1200) to the zone the bottom-left Link Arrow of "Holly Angel" points to. Each time a "Trickstar" monster is Normal or Special Summoned to a zone "Holly Angel" points to, its effect inflicts 200 damage to Specter (Specter: 4000 → 3800 LP). As Specter took damage from a "Trickstar" monster's effect, the effect of "Holly Angel" activates, increasing its ATK equal to the damage he took ("Holly Angel": 2000 → 2200 ATK).

The effect of "Lilybell" allows it to attack directly. "Lilybell" attacks Specter directly (Specter: 3800 → 3000 LP). As Specter took battle or effect damage, he activates the effect of "Dryas", Special Summoning a "Sunvine" Link Monster from his Extra Deck to his zone his "Sunavalon" Link Monster points to, then gaining LP equal to the damage he took. He Special Summons "Sunvine Gardna" (600/↑) to the zone the bottom-center Link Arrow of "Dryas" points to (Specter: 3000 → 3800 LP). As "Lilybell" inflicted battle damage to Specter, Blue Angel activates its effect, adding a "Trickstar" monster from her GY to her hand. She adds "Lycoris" to her hand. "Holly Angel" attacks "Gardna". As Blue Angel's monster declared an attack that targeted "Gardna", Specter activates its effect, targeting a "Sunavalon" Link Monster that points to it and reducing any battle damage Specter would take from that battle by that monster's Link Rating times 800. He targets the Link-1 "Dryas", reducing the battle damage by 800. The attack continues and "Gardna" is destroyed (Specter: 3800 → 3000 LP). As "Gardna" was destroyed by battle, Specter activates its effect, ending the Battle Phase. Blue Angel activates the effect of "Lycoris" in her hand, targeting "Lilybell", Special Summoning "Lycoris" (1600/1200), then returning "Lilybell" to her hand. Blue Angel Sets a card. During the End Phase, by the effect of "Light Arena", Specter must activate his Set card or else it is returned to his hand. As Specter controls a "Sunavalon" monster, he activates his face-down Trap "Sunvine Burial", targeting a Set card in Blue Angel's Spell & Trap Zone, revealing it, and if it is a Trap, it is banished, then Specter banishes all cards from Blue Angel's hand and Deck with the same name as that banished card. He targets Blue Angel's Set card, revealing it to be the Trap "Trickstar Reincarnation", banishing it and two other copies of "Reincarnation" from Blue Angel's Deck.

Turn 3: Specter
Specter draws. Each time a card is added to Specter's hand, the effect of "Lycoris" inflicts 200 damage to him for each (Specter: 3000 → 2800 → 2600 LP). As Specter took battle or effect damage, he activates the effect of "Dryas", Special Summoning "Sunvine Healer" (600/↑) from his Extra Deck to the zone the bottom-center Link Arrow of "Dryas" points to, then gaining LP equal to the damage he took (Specter: 2600 → 2800 LP). As "Healer" was Special Summoned, Specter activates its effect, targeting a "Sunavalon" Link Monster that points to it and gaining LP equal to its Link Rating times 300. He targets the Link-1 "Dryas" and gains 300 LP (Specter: 2800 → 3100 LP). As Specter took damage from a "Trickstar" monster's effect, the effect of "Holly Angel" activates, increasing its ATK equal to the damage he took ("Holly Angel": 2000 → 2400 ATK). Specter sets "Dryas" and "Healer" in the Link Arrows to Link Summon "Sunavalon Dryades" (0/↙↘) to the Extra Monster Zone. Specter Normal Summons "Sunseed Genius Loci" (0/600). Specter sets "Genius Loci" in the Link Arrow to Link Summon "Sunvine Thrasher" (800/↓) to the zone the bottom-left Link Arrow of "Dryades" points to. As "Thrasher" was Special Summoned, Specter activates its effect, targeting a "Sunavalon" Link Monster that points to it and increasing its ATK equal to that monster's Link Rating times 800. He targets the Link-2 "Dryades" and increases the ATK of "Thrasher" by 1600 ("Thrasher": 800 → 2400 ATK). "Thrasher" attacks "Holly Angel". At the start of the Damage Step, as "Thrasher" is battling Blue Angel's monster, Specter activates its effect, if Blue Angel's monster is destroyed by this battle and sent to the GY, Specter Special Summons it to his zone his "Sunavalon" Link Monster points to. The attack continues and both "Thrasher" and "Holly Angel" are destroyed, then Specter Special Summons "Holly Angel" (2000/↙↘) to the zone the bottom-right Link Arrow of "Dryades" points to. "Holly Angel" attacks and destroys "Lycoris" (Blue Angel: 4000 → 3600 LP). Blue Angel's hand contains "Trickstar Treat", "Lilybell" and "Candina".

Duel continues in the next episode.
