An adaptation of the Future Card Buddyfight card game.

Future Card Buddyfight takes place in a more futuristic version of today. The card game connects to a parallel universe through special cards (Buddy Rare Cards) that act as portals. They bring monsters to Earth in order for them to become buddies with humans. Through friendship and courage, they take on and fight challenges, known as Buddyfights, where people of all ages have friendly non-hurtful competitions. The main character, Gaou Mikado has just started Buddyfighting. As the story progresses, Buddyfights are seeming to become a little too real...

Yay! I have the honor of being the first review!

Future Card Buddyfight is a brilliant TCG anime, that never takes itself too serious. It would be in my favorite animes list, but we are only allowed to have five. I find this show a lovable mesh of Pokemon meets Cardfight!! Vanguard.

In contrast to other card-based animes, the characters can actually "fight" in the battles instead of only shouting commands. The characters keep one partner only (exception: Gao), so no time-consuming episodes of them trying to fill their fighting rosters.

FCBF constantly uses the word 'buddy' in any sentence possible. This could potentially annoy read more

Buddyfight's protagonist strongly reminds me of Satoshi/Ash from Pokemon. Also, both series have monster battles, stopping bad guys, and are targeted to kids of roughly the same age 
This anime is similar, because, although it's not a game, there is a parallel universe, (The Digiworld) and i picked this digimon title out of a bunch of others, probably because when i watch Future Card Buddyfight, Gao likes to attack too, he doesn't just make his friends (buddy cards) do all the work, even though Marcus usually only attacks once for a DNA charge, he would still be willing to fight, (or try to fight) and also the main characters, Marcus Daman, and Agumon, are really close friends, even though Agumon always calls Marcus, Boss (Aniki in japanese version) instead of Drum calling Gao  read more 
The characters are both hot-blooded but skilled fighters who are always doing what they believe is right. They also have an organization similar to GCG. 
Gou and Drum are a lot like Ikki and Medabee. These are have a similar type of battling. They are both fun! If you enjoy Medabots, then you will enjoy this. 
both are abute card games and have a similar plot and the cardfight characters make a cameo  
reportRecommended by V-Kun - Add to favorites
A group of adolescents participate in at first glance a game made for children. However, the monster avatars actually originate from alternate dimensions. The red-clad main character attracts many to his party and is always ready for a fight. He is impulsive, but almost always guaranteed to win. As the series progresses, the plot involves not just the game, but a more dark secret.
