This one of those series where no matter how crucial accuracy is, the animators still decide to butcher an enjoyable story completely by altering a major part of the plot just in order to save profit and wrap up quickly, at the expense of viewer satisfaction, especially when overly edgy tropes and storylines are not one's forte.

The story appears rather mediocre at first, but it has a flavor to it that makes it pretty enjoyable, especially since the series is only mild in length instead of being stretched to the brim of its ass. Other viewers have summarized it and the information is all read more

Preliminary
Once again, the story goes on. Basically the same "Vanguard" formula. A new threat arrives, dark plot twist (which in this case, the main character goes missing/is taken into a void). The pacing is painfully slow, and I'm waiting fortnight upon fortnight to see the next big episode only for the characters to repeat the same dialogue, followed by a montage of (an attempt at) suspenseful scenes. There isn't much other context provided but I feel like the series is headed in the same route as the original Vanguard, just without the protagonist.

Cardfight Vanguard in general retains the regular Shonen style with wacky hairstyles and read more
