"I can see it. The way I can win..."

"This time I will beat him. So come at me again... accept! 'Bloom, gambler of souls!'"

In New Kyoto, a city governed by the "King," one's worth is determined by his or her strength in the Build Divide trading card game. Rumors swirl about New Kyoto and its King.

"If you defeat the King in Build Divide, any wish will be fulfilled." And in order to challenge the King, one must participate in the TCG battle known as Rebuild, and the "Key" must be completed.

Everyone has a wish they long to have fulfilled. Teruto Kurabe, a boy who vows to take down the King, and Sakura Banka, the mysterious girl who guides him, throw themselves into the Rebuild battle. With New Kyoto as the stage, the curtain rises and the battle begins for Teruto and his friends!

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 read more

Redemption. Master and teacher. Teacher and student. Finding your path. As banal as that all sounds, Build Divide: Code Black excelled in executing great story telling behind those ideas. Teruto is the loveable and fun main character whom the viewers can't help but constantly laugh at how awkward and funny his mannerisms are. He definitely became my favorite protagonist of the season. Having lost part of his memory and personality, all he can think about is the king and finding his path towards that. As a result, he has lost the ability to function as a normal human, and for whatever reason develops a hilarious read more

Build Divide: Code Black is weird to judge; at least when it comes as an entry into the general "card game anime" genre. Speaking of that: This is a show about card games! I'd say "don't dismiss it out of hand" but whether or not you can suspend your disbelief as to all kinds of fights in the universe being resolved through the power of trading cards is pretty make-or-break for a lot of people. I can say that Build Divide: Code Black at least tries to do a slightly more mellow, less adventurous and overall slightly more serious plot than your average Saturday morning read more

Card game adaptations are a boon and bane, for nothing else more than promotion of the actual TCG IP only sold in Japan. Well, thank God that only the West appreciated classics like Pokémon, Yu-Gi-Oh!, Duel Masters and the like. And in this case, Build Divide is sorta a high-profile case because of one sponsor: Aniplex, of all companies. The staff helming this show are quite impressive as well: debut director Yuki Komada whom was once in Shaft producing the Monogatari series, along with Homura Kawamoto and Hikaru Muno of Kakegurui fame.

The show just plays out just like the nth time that you've been watching read more
