I really dont see how this idea of anime gets four seasons while other anime's 10 times better than this can't even get a second season. Who even watches this anime , seriously all they do is repeat the same concept each season in a different way and they drag it out,


Simple, it's a show based on a card game. A card game that is very popular with kids in Japan at the moment, and Bushiroad can still use the anime as a means of advertising the card game. It's not going to be stopping any time soon.

I have been wondering if Vanguard is any good. Is it like Yu-Gi-Oh or something like that?


wondering the same thing over here

The show isn't anything too spectacular; it likely won't wow you. It doesn't even get close to the supernatural levels Yugioh gets to (except season 3 to an extent now). However, it is a fun show to kick back and relax while watching it. The beginning of season one is essentially learning how to play the game along with the main character. The second half of season one does get pretty intense surprisingly though. If you're a huge TCG fan, you will probably find this show very enjoyable (like me). Regardless, give the first episode a shot.

If you can endure Aichi and Toshiki character, you will be able to endure Asia Circuit.

Well, I'm pretty early in the third season, but I'll be there eventually.

As for the movie, I have mixed feelings on it. If I watch it, it'll be or the animated part, and not the live-action portion.

It's a so very average kid's card game. It is kinda like Yu gi oh, but it's more normal and less supernatural. But like I said, don't expect anything great, it's just as average as you can get.

Wasn't Kazuchika Okada supposed to be in one of these Cardfight live action dealies? Whatever happened with that?

I'm not even up to date with Link Joker Hen (^-^). To all you people stuck a Asia Circuit Hen: just watch it, bare with it. Link Joker Hen is great again!

Typo on my end for the first letter. Fixed it, thanks.

Season 2 was kinda shitty for me also at least compared to season 1. However, Link Joker is pretty much at the core of its plot right now and is decent enough. The first 20 or so episodes is a bit slow though.

Looks like I need to finish Asia hen and Joker hen too. Got bored about 6 episodes into Asia hen. Was planning on going slow unless they announced another series, was just thinking about it today, weird.

Yeah...Asia Circuit really wasn't very good imo. I would say that I clawed my way through that season. Joker-hen has been quite enjoyable though. Like season 1, I actually look forward to the episode each week.


Agreed that Joker-hen is a really enjoyable season to watch. The second season was okay though. Can't wait for the fourth season.

Yes, also supporting the idea that Asia Circuit-hen sucked but Link Joker-hen is back to being great.
