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...

this anime is very underrated and no one talks about it at least in my opinion

story 7/10:the best aspect of the story is the information about The cards and categories and abilities of them and it has also a compelling plot but in the other hand it lacks depth or plot twists or mystery or philosophical ideas it is just a feel good story with decent world building and a complex power system [cards].

art 7/10: nothing much to say very good animation with decent art but nothing impressive or amazing.

sound 6/10: okay, don't remember it tho :]

characters 7/10: i like several characters in this anime ...

Well time to review something different for once.

Back when I was a teenager, I was re-introduced to card games thanks to little series called Cardfight Vanguard. The first season of Cardfight Vanguard was a pretty great show. I really adored the more grounded feel of the series as most of the Cardfight were won by still rather than lucky draws. It had great theme exploration such as not running away, communication, teamwork, redemption and understanding one another. The characters were the most part were nicely developed and likeable in they own way and the soundtrack while a bit repetitive at times was nicely executed.

This isn't the bottom of the barrel. We're through the barrel and plunging into cavernous depths previously unknown to man. This is garbage.

And that's the thing, too. There's no pretension of it being anything other than garbage. Everyone involved knew this was garbage pumped out to kill time on the airwaves and shill a third rate collectible card game. If the creators made a quick buck, I can respect their business sense. I can only muster respect for Future Card Buddyfight as a scam.

This show is as creatively bankrupt as it gets. All the cliches that Pokemon and its ilk have worn into the ground ...
