A few months have passed since the VF Circuit, and Aichi is now in High School. However Aichi is in a different high school than most of his friends, a high school where the instructors focus on looking towards the future. One day Aichi admits he thinks Cardfight can be a future people can believe in, but in order to prove it Aichi must use his new deck, a deck in which Royal Paladins and Gold Paladins are combined as one force. Slowly but surely Aichi must gain friends through Cardfighting and help his new team win the newly formed high school cardfighting championships.

if you like anime similar to Yu Gi Oh this anime is right for you.
In short, the story takes place between the school desks: a group of boys play habitually fighting with their imagination. Sendou Aichi is the typical frightened Japanese boy who predictably becomes a great fighter over time. Another protagonist is Kai Toshiki, an excellent player, defined by all as the absolute best. Naturally the salient part is all in the two main characters: a first defeat of Aichi can be expected up to a crescendo in which in the episode 13 will be the boy to win on the great champion.

I was waiting for this to happen. Cardfight: Vanguard finally has a full-size plot.
In former series the characters just participated in tournaments and rescued the world (or even entire universe). Now they are at school, starting their own cardfighting club.
I like the new plot mainly because it features life of high-school students (a very popular theme in manga and anime). There are new characters and some background characters now become foreground. What's more I think that the characters have become some kind of more mature (they are in high-school after all).
I think that art has slightly improved compared to the former series.
What is really good read more

Cardfight vanguard is an interesting anime that helped bring up the card game as we know it today, When i started watching anime this was one of the first's that was introduced to me. It has nice looking art with an alright character design and a plot line to the brim with fillers. I wanted to review this because the third season of Cardfight!! Vanguard, deserves more credit then it is getting. It is great to finally see some sort of plot line again like it the first one and i am excited to see where it goes. I think this season deserves a 7 read more

I finished watching Asia Circuit Hen (ACH) and thought it's about time to stop watching this series. ACH was practically nothing more than a 30+ episodes prologue, with the last under ten episodes dealing with the actual story. Ok, at least try watching the first episodes of Link Joker Hen (LJH). And I'm so glad I did it!

In LJH, a bunch of new characters gets introduced, like Ishida Naoki, wannabe delinquent and an incredibly cool guy, Shingo, some nerd looking guy and the evil student council. All these new characters breath new life into Cardfight. Persons like Kamui, Nagisa or the Team Handsome read more
