Shy and timid in nature, 15-year-old Yu-yu Kondou is constantly pressured by his wacky sisters to fulfill their unreasonable requests. One day, they force their brother to crossdress for the sake of their own entertainment, prompting him to run away from home. Following a series of unexpected events, Yu-yu encounters a friendly girl Megumi Ookura, who introduces him to Team Blackout—a group of individuals deeply involved in a card game called Cardfight Vanguard.

As he increasingly connects with the members of Team Blackout—Danji Momoyama, Zakusa Ishigame, Tomari Seto, and Megumi herself—Yu-yu discovers a whole new and exciting world, one he could have never imagined without the help of his newfound friends.

Section 1: Which audience is this show for?
It is a great show if you do not care about Vanguard the card game. As someone who does not know a single thing about Vanguard and has a very small diminishing interest in card games in general, I found the show to be amazing at times and standard in some of the weaker episodes.

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (5/12 eps)
I like the characters and I think the setting of the fights is interesting.
It’s good to see for change it’s not another card shop.

Though I think the story at this point really focus on the card game itself.
The fact that they didn’t visualize the fights like previous shows really makes it hard to understand the fight itself.

Instead they are throwing us at end of the battle animation battle. Suddenly it’s a physical fight. Why change something that was not broken ?

In the end, it makes really bad introduction to new players.

I think there is potential to this Vanguard ...
