Since we need to finish VRAINS with this set due to Link Into the VRAINS being released in the TCG a while back, we might as well do that before we look at the 4 cards for the other series, so let’s look at Angel of Blue Tears.
Angel of Blue Tears is a Normal Spell that lets you target a face-up monster on the field to make its controller’s opponent take damage equal to the number of cards in their hand times 200 and then negate the effects of the targeted monster. I don’t get why this isn’t on a Quick-Play Spell or a Normal Trap, cause negating a monster’s effect isn’t as great on a Normal Spell. The second effect triggers if effect damage is inflicted, letting you banish this card from the graveyard to set a Normal Trap from your hand or Deck, with you being able to use it that turn if set from the hand. Considering the source material, you’re probably intended to set Trickstar Reincarnation off this or maybe a Marincess card. It’s fine to get a Normal Trap from Deck still, I just wish you could use it the same turn after being set from Deck and not just from the hand. Only 1 effect a turn and only once that turn, which feels even more underwhelming since neither effect is that strong really. The card really could of been better, especially if it could of been used on the opponent’s turn from being a Quick-Play Spell or Normal Trap. As it is, the card isn’t great.
Advanced Rating: 1.5/5
Art: 5/5 So yeah, this is based on Blue Angel, with this being the book that Akira Zaizen read to his younger sister, Skye, and basically gave her the inspiration to become Blue Angel.
