Set in Tokyo, it's January 29, 2030. High-frequency resonance is observed in the vicinity of Tokyo, and the red fog rolls into the city. Those who hear the sound, humans and animals alike, pass out, losing consciousness. Everything shuts down in Tokyo, believing that the fog is carrying an unknown virus that causes an epidemic. However, six days later, after the incident, people wake up as if nothing happened. After that, Tokyo's sealed-off city sections gradually return to normal. However, since the high-frequency resonance, some "bizarre events" start to happen, and people find themselves being pulled deeper into more mysteries. Meanwhile, young people start to become aware of themselves and release their power hidden in their blood, discovering themselves as "vessel of wisdom blood." Together, being led by something unknown, they meet, communicate, and face the unavoidable circle of fate, sacrificing their own lives.
I'll be completely honest here: Even if I'm not a fan of card games, I do know the massive fanbase of certain card game series that everyone loves and still plays to this day, and this isn't one of them. Should I feel sad? I don't think so.
To understand why the card game got an adaptation into an anime, we need to understand the core series, which is only available in the Land of the Rising Sun, and no one else...(But who cares anyways)…
The story is Dance Of The Dragons-like confusing and hard to understand, but you just need this one exact point to understand
the core of this series: It's an all-out war between factions, and nothing else. To add to the excruciating storyline, not even the main MCs are spared from the events that foretold what is going to happen, and are just told that they "need to awaken their powers to fight evil". Sorry, I have heard this troupe a million times, and it's like the characters serve their purpose to move along with the storytelling and nothing else.
Musical-wise, try to think back Mahoutsukai no Yome's pairing duo for the 2nd cour, and you can see why their potentials are brought leagues down and rightfully so.
The art and animation...a co-production between Asread and newly-founded Tear Studio, is about as average as it gets. I didn't have high hopes for the series to stand out, and it did as told, there is nothing noteworthy to say that is good of the series.
You might think this show's Achilles heel would be the story (which diverges from the arcade game) and its characters (lifeless and emotionless), armed with the supernatural battle series, it's a show I would advise you to steer far, far away from its horrible execution.
