Neo Kyoto is a place where everything is decided through the card game "Build Divide." From resolving personal conflicts to determining social status, success in Build Divide means success in life. The biggest ambition of every player is to become the King, whose peerless skills grant them near-total rule over the city.

One day, a young man wakes up in Neo Kyoto—with the knowledge of just his name, Teruto Kurabe, and carrying only a deck for a card game he no longer knows. Teruto soon encounters another player, Sakura Banka, who helps him remember both how to play Build Divide and his original mission: that no matter what, he must meet the King. Teaming up together, Teruto and Sakura find that their best chance for a royal audience is with the Rebuild tournament, where the one who collects twenty-one tokens from other competitors can challenge the King for their throne. However, as Teruto continues to play, he begins to regain his lost memories that call into question the very nature of Neo Kyoto.

might contain (spoilers) probably one of my fav animes
Wow when I started watching this anime I was expecting some low quality, yugioh card game anime rip off but what I got is one of the best animes in this season,
Story is really good its follows of our Mc who lost his memories but only remember one things to defend the king no matter, he meets some friends along the way but the world around them is very believable and the story is very interesting every episode you discover something new and it's never gets old

Is a banger I love the art and fan ...

Mixed Feelings
Would be interesting to fans of the TCG and people who like unique plot twists in non-psychological anime. Might be boring for a bit for those uninitiated with the TCG as they don't explicitly/fully explain the rules.

Story - 7
Worldbuilding - 6
Characters - 7
Production Value - 7

Average, bland even; but greatly picks up near the end. The pacing felt okay; probably because they were skipping half the battles and most of the encountered characters didn't have much significance to the main story. It's a very lean story.

Fun concept but fails to deliver

It has been ages since I have seen an anime with card games as the main concept. Last was Yu-Gi-Oh which was great. Where this show fails to capture the fun that card games really are. I think it is mainly because the mess this show is.

Let's see. When I was watching the first episode it certainly seemed like a fun idea and it was good for the first episode because we got to see how the world works and how the game itself works. It had many unique ideas but the games kinda just over used them. Like with ...
