The story is set in the not-so-distant future. Five "Black Points" suddenly appeared around the world as portals to parallel worlds. Immediately after, strange creatures began their invasion from these portals. These creatures are the inhabitants of five worlds—the same worlds in different timeframes. In order to ensure their own future timeframe survives, each of the five invasion forces battle to wipe the other future timeframes out. The key is one card-shaped device.

When you are faced with new characters every episode almost no background for them and their assistants ( Z/X ) that for some reason half of them are hot babes and the rest are relatives with pokemons ,after that you find out there is almost no story to talk about and a lot of lose ends , a single question rises from the ashes , what could make someone watch this ? Well for me was a lot of free time and a open mind . Yes , these wore my reasons for watching Z/X IGNITION .
Yes , yes , i forgot to read more

I want to start the review saying that I enjoyed this anime a lot. Although is a game based anime, and I've had some bad experiences with anime like that, this one was pretty good.

Story 8/10: The story parts form a point where the characters have already developed certain relationships between them and their Z/X so I thought it was gonna get confused, since most game based anime are like that and don't explain more of the back story of the characters. But this was different since after 1 episode you can see the back story of all the characters and understand the whole story.

The anime was good for me except for one major problem mad it bad.This problem was rushing through events.Form my point of view if the anime was 24 episodes instead of 12 , it would be a lot batter because it's so obvious the rushing through anime (short fights scenes,no back ground for the main characters,they left at the end of anime so many things unsettled etc..) and at the end of the anime there was >Fin< does it mean that there is no way we are continuing the anime ?

The essence of the story it self was great ..so great but the sequel read more

Z/X: Ignition is your typical collectible card game adaptation with all the holes and problems of it's genre, but there's an odd silver lining to all this.

Z/X: Ignition's plot follows Asuka Tennoji voiced by Hiro Shimono and his pseudo-harem of Azumi Kagamihara voiced by Yui Ogura the shy sick stereotype, Ayase Kamiyugi voiced by Miyuki Sawashiro the tsundere, Asuka's Z/X Fierte voiced by M.A.O and Asuka's childhood friend Aina Mikage voiced by Yurika Endou with them fighting Z/X's, Z/X's beings from other worlds needing owners of "Card devices" in order to live in Earth, with ALL of them having backstories pertaining to the Black Point read more
