Yu-yu is a boy living in Kanazawa, Kaga Province. He is 15 years old and in his third year of junior high school. He has the ability to sense the feelings of others, but he is troubled by the fact that he cannot say no when asked.

One day, Yu-yu could no longer stand going along with his sister's hobby, so he ran away from home. The one who saves him is Megumi Okura. Megumi invites Yu-yu to a nighttime amusement park called "Wonder Hill" where her friends hang out. At the amusement park, Yu-yu meets Megumi, Zakusa Ishikame, and Tomari Seto, members of "Team Blackout," a group that meets to play Vanguard every night.

Tonight, a serious fight for the team's flag will take place. Blackout's leader, Danji Momoyama, and the mysterious and powerful fighter, Touya Ebata. As Yu-yu stares at them, the card fight is soon eroded into a world of images.

This is how Yu-yu encounters Vanguard, a world he has never seen before, and is drawn in by its powerful allure- making new friends along the way.

A new series of Vanguard is here! Being a fan of Vanguard for many years, to hear a new series was coming this season, I was super happy about it. While I am pleased in some areas in what this anime is bringing with it's new story, and new adventure. It isn't perfect by any means. But for sure, as a long term Vanguard fan, it's just real nice to have another Vanguard show around once more.

Story and characters
For me. While Vanguard is about the card game, but Vanguard has always had either a good cast of characters, with personalities that really drive the show read more

I don't mean to be a huge bummer or anything but:

What the hell?

overDress is a reboot of the Cardfight!! Vanguard franchise, something I've not been following for as long as some, but still for the past two or so years. I was looking for a new card game to get into, anime's a good gateway, and watching the original anime got it to stick. The original Cardfight!! Vanguard anime is by no means a great show, but the beginning served as a compelling enough hook to get people into the game. The characters were ok and the structure scratched a similar itch to the one read more

I am a big fan of the original vg series and have played the physical card game before, I plan on coming back to playing the game to when the overdress reboot was announced. So even though I really really love what I see in the tcg right now and I feel like the new format is heading the right direction, the overdress anime to me is..... very disappointing. For a card game anime it doesn't really have that much card games shown to it, they focus on Danji way too much (actually feels like Danji has more screen time than yuyu, you know, read more

Having never seen any part of the Vanguard series, I was excited to see a whole new reboot that might prepare me for the transition into this world. What I saw, and what's out so far, has done nothing but confuse me.

Before I gave overDress a shot, I tried to read as many reviews (on the first episode) as I could from my fellow Crunchyroll watchers to see if a newbie, like me, could get into this series with this reboot. A common remark was that overDress was meant for old watchers and new watchers, alike, to come and enjoy! Great, right? Not great. read more
