FIRST IMPRESSION – Cardfight!! Vanguard Ep 1 (Vanguard to Destiny!)

ITS A FUCKIN REPLICA OF YU-GI-OH!!!!!!!! Possibly Duel Monsters as well…This makes me remember the good times…when I was obsessed with the game…so here’s the first episode of Cardfight Vanguard!!


It opens up with a near-ending duel of Vanguard (a card game that is a close replica of Yu-Gi-Oh!) between two boys named Kai and Morikawa. It ends with the victor, Kai, who is wondering how boring and easily the match was won. Meanwhile, the loser Morikawa is mad and is determined to defeat Kai.

Basically, the world revolves around a card game called “Vanguard” and alot of people play it.

Now we meet our lovely wimp protagonist, Sendou Aichi. He’s basically the shy boy and messes up when asked a question. However, he has a card called “Blaster Blade” that he really treasures and apparently, “Blaster Blade” is a really rare card. Then loser Morikawa ,who happens to be his classmate, sees “Blaster Blade” and steals it from Aichi.

There's Morikawa...with the "Blaster Blade" card in his fingers

Morikawa goes back to the store where he and Kai fought and challenges Kai again with the bet of winner gets “Blaster Blade”. Obviously, Kai wins again. Right then, Aichi comes in panting and wanting his “Blaster Blade” back. Kai won’t take that shit and says that Aichi must win it back. Eventually, a duel starts between Kai and Aichi. The episode ends when Aichi calling Kai’s name (cause they’re not really supposed to know each other and its their first time meeting). Somehow, they acknowledge one another and that’s the ending of the ep.

Here's Kai in the middle of the fight with Aichi


All I can really point out is, like the beginning, this is a pure replica of Yu Gi Oh! The noticable differences are the different card games and names and different people (except the fact that their personality is sorta similar…) I can even give you a list of similar charas:

Kai: Kaiba
Aichi: Yugi
Morikawa: Joey Wheeler

And that’s it so far. Hopefully that list doesn’t continue or that would be a problem -__-” I also think this has nothing to do with Egyptian mythology…pretty sure about that…

Here is our main protagonist!!! Sendou Aichi

7/10 (it could turn out ok if it manipulated continued well)
Graphics: 7.5/10 (it looks decent, not the best but not the worst either)
9/10 (if it was for the anime, perfect card game theme) 1/10 (if it was for me)


The next episode is called “Ride to Victory” and my good guess prediction is that it will end with the duel between Aichi and Kai. Sadly, I couldn’t find a picture of the second ep preview so I would like to give you:

It's Kai and Aichi!!! A little time before the duel started :D

Until next time!

    I liked Yu-Gi-Oh and Magic the Gathering and all but after a while it just started to suck. Magic had too many game breaking cards and YGO got so complicated (tokens and theme based sets and crazy fusions wat?).

    Also, I missed the spiky hair. The kind that is literally a spike. It doesn’t even try to mask it.
