Dan Bashin is a spirited teenager known for his aggressive playstyle in the card game Battle Spirits, earning him the title of "Clash King." One day, a mysterious green-haired girl transports him to the otherworldly land of "Grand Rolo," where disputes are settled by card duels.

Upon his arrival, Dan is immediately thrust into a conflict between the kingdom's imperial army and its oppressed natives. There, he learns that he is a prophetic warrior known as a "bearer of cores' light," chosen to save the land from its evil king. Accompanied by a young boy named Zungurii and the eccentric witch Magisa, Dan travels across Grand Rolo and encounters the other chosen warriors through card battles.

With the name of the Clash King gaining fame throughout Grand Rolo, secrets that lurk within the shadows of the kingdom's colonial past begin to surface. Only time will tell if Dan's campaign will affect the world on a scale much larger than he ever could have imagined.

First of all, I apologize for my bad English.

Battle Spirits: Shounen Gekiha Dan is an anime series centered on the card game "Battle Spirits" and is, to this day, one of the best anime of the genre.

Art: 8. except for the dated CGI, the whole series is quite beautiful, even if the animation is not spectacular, it is quite pleasant to watch.

Characters: 10. wow. Of all the card anime I've watched, I can easily say that "Gekiha Dan" has one of the best cast of characters, Dan, for example, is awesome!

Sound: score 7. The soundtrack is okay, not the best thing in the world, but read more

The story is of bashin dan where he is taken to the "otherworld" a different world of earth. Along with 5 others, where they are core soldiers with a color-soldier, where they are the ones who can become the king if they win against the otherworld king, or in short the chosen ones.

The battle system- when a character takes damage you get hurt with pain. The battle is super easy to understand it's always explained. Draw step, core step, refresh step, main step all of that, probably forgot one. Just follow along and you will not have any problem, like how did he beat that.

This story starts with Bashin Dan who was taken into another world by siblings Kajitsu and Yuki, after dan pursues Kajitsu when she defeated him. At first it does seem ordinary and confusing.

I did not get to understand when and how these two siblings come across with Dan. I was in a dilemma that it may be a prelogue to the content of the episode. It seems as if the scene is fastforwarded. But from Episode 2 it captured read more
