After discovering that his orphanage was on the brink of closing due to financial stress, Finn, who was living freely on the streets, set out for a casino with the aim of making a fortune. However, nothing could have prepared Finn for the nightmare that was awaiting him. Once there, Finn encountered a car chase and bloody shootout caused by a man's "lucky" card.

Finn will eventually learn what the shootout was about. The world order can be controlled by a set of 52 X-Playing cards with the power to bestow different superhuman powers and abilities to the ones that possess them. With these cards, people can access the hidden power of the "buddy" that can be found within themselves.

There is a secret group of players called High Card, who have been directly ordered by the king of Fourland to collect the cards that have been scattered throughout the kingdom while moonlighting as employees of the luxury carmaker Pinochle. Scouted to become the group's fifth member, Finn soon joins the players on a dangerous mission to find these cards.

"All you need in life are manners, dignity, and the will to bet on your own life."

However, Who's Who, the rival car maker obsessed with defeating Pinochle, and the Klondikes, the infamous Mafia family, stand in the way of the gang. A frenzied battle amongst these card-obsessed players, fueled by justice, desire, and revenge, is about to begin!

Are you ready? It's Showdown!!

Preliminary (3/12 eps)
At first I thought it will be something like Kingsman, but with anime shenanigans on top. The concept of cards that give super powers was interesting and intriguing because you want to see what kind of abilities other cards give their users. But after Episode 3 I'm dropping this title because so called protagonists killed three siblings just because they were poor and suffered no consequences for it or had any sort of reaction to their actions.

Preliminary (4/12 eps)
I personally dont agree with the bad reviews. The story is pretty good so far. Each episode introduces a new character and focuses on each of their own stories which I think is pretty good considering that this only has 12 eps. We get to know a but of every character before rather than a bunch of characters being forced onto us. I also really like the powers each of the characters have since it correlates with their personalities in some way

Story wise, there isnt much plot so far since its more so introduction of each of the characters. But i do like the overall ...

Mixed Feelings
Preliminary (3/12 eps)
After watching 3 episodes of this, it isn't terrible nor is it great, the pacing is a tad to fast and the explanation of the cards is sprinkled in. I really wish maybe that type of information was thoroughly given. But from my understanding, in a deck you have 52 cards, in this world you have 52 people or "players" that obtain powers with a card. The card will choose you and you are unable to use another person's card. On the topic of another person's card, I'm not sure if a card can choose another person if the original holder dies (I assume it ...
