This anime may be called "Shadowverse" but everything from art style to story is completely different. As a relatively new player (of almost 1 year), I'll try to objectively judge this adaptation without lingering too much on what it *could've* been had they kept the same serious aesthetic and maturity from the game.

Story: 3
As per the word "poor" suggests, the storyline (so far) has been basically nonexistent. Each episode hangs on its own and could be essentially described as the MC finding an excuse to battle someone, top-decking that op 7 cost dragon card that wipes the board and hits face for 10, and without read more

I was really looking forward to this anime cuz shadowverse is one of my favorite games. Wth is this dumb story and those STUPID battles. Has the writer ever played shadowverse before? The main guy just could get ignis dragon every time he almost lost, and YEAH, HE WON. Can't the writer just show his strategy a little? Mimori vs Alice is the best episode cuz they were using their BRAIN when playing. Mauro is also good but smh he still lost , cuz the main guy just got exactly what he wanted in the next round, seriously??? And the most read more

My honest opinion on the anime is that it quite good for a kids show!

This is a fucking kids show and if you guys don't understand that then leave. This show isn't trying to change the kids' genre. This is your normal kid shonen protag show. It was quite fun and enjoyable and we get to see the OG protaginist on episode 25 YES!

The narrative was quite amazing the fact they had such amazing character development for each character. which is key for this show. The only character development I need is Hiros. He is always winning battles. He only got 1 episode read more

I feel like it's mainly a TV oriented anime, that's supposed to be broadcast on TV. All episodes are independant from eachother, facilitating a TV broadcast where you don't have a story to follow. It may also be the reason for the brief cut in the middle of each episode which is likely where a TV advertisement would take place. The target audience, mainly kids, is also the the most succeptible to watch TV and download the game after watching the show.
They're two issues here : For now at least, there is no story to follow beside two episodes long plots. This show also sometimes read more
