Weekly Bites reveals: Origin Rares, Image Ride Rare, OTT Triggers

Today on the third episode of Weekly Bites, hosts Doctor O, Kitta Izumi, and Maeda Seiji, revealed the upcoming Origin Rare print cards from V-Booster Set 01: UNITE! TEAM Q4: Asura Kaiser, Dragonic Overlord, CEO Amaterasu, and Blaster Blade. These prints use their respective artworks from Booster Set 01: Descent of the King of Knights, but have their new skills from the most recent set and no text boxes enclosing their card text.

Izumi also showed off the four Super Vanguard Rares from the set. Imperial Daughter, Dragonic Waterfall, and Alfred had already been revealed, but this is our first look at Perfect Raizer's SVR.

Also included in the set are four Secret Rare prints of the promotional Gift Markers, signed by the anime characters' respective voice actors.

The set's Image Ride Rare is Blaster Blade featuring a new illustration by manga author and franchise creator Itou Akira, with his hotstamped autograph.

Finally, in the episode's special fight between Kitta and Maeda, two more triggers for Oracle Think Tank were revealed: the Heal Trigger Sphere Magus, and the Critical Trigger Oracle Guardian Nike. In the above image, Sphere Magus is on the Guardian Circle, and Nike is in Kitta's Drop Zone. Taking into account the previously-revealed Psychic Bird, Miracle Kid, and Miss Mist, Oracle Think Tank now has two Draw and two Critical Triggers each.

The decklist used by Kitta confirms these were the only new cards used today:
