    My review for Cardfight Vanguard
    Before I went into this Anime I read the reviews which where all pretty much raving about how good it was. In some ways they are right. Cardfight Vanguard is a refreshing installment into the card type Anime series. The Graphics are up to date with what you would expect an Anime of the current age to be. The sound effects are to notch and the plot so far is sufficient. While that may sound like a ...

  • A good card game anime
    For an anime in general it is average (think a 3.5) , especially seeing the rather slow beginning to the show but I must say it picks up in the middle and races towards the end for a great finale.

    the sound effects and visuals are great to be honest, and some moments do shine very well due to the great visuals for a more modern anime. I also like the character designs even if some characters ...

    Better then your average anime, but lacked that special something.
    Interesting ideas used in this anime, i watched this without even knowing what vanguard was about and now after finishing it i can say that i know how to play the game. So if this was made for teaching people how to play it has succeeded in at least doing that. The plot was a bit strange at points but some of the characters were very entertaining, while some you just hoped never appeared again. ...

    Pretty useful for begginers
    If anyone has been recommended to play the TCG and been told to watch the anime to help out, that person is most likely skilled at the game already. I love the TCG(Trading Card Game) and the anime did a really good job in getting me more into than i should of had. This first season helps any begginer understand how the game works and if you've watched the original Yu-Gi-Oh, you may noticed that ...

    It is way less ridiculous than Yu-Gi-Oh
    Than again, a lot of things are less ridiculous and confusing than Yu-Gi-Oh. Don't be fooled though, this is a show where the characters are VERY well aware that it's just a children's card game.
    Synopsis in as few words as possible: We have our introvert protagonist who breaks out of his shell with his friends via a card game. Simple enough but for whatever reason this show has continued ...

  • Simple but effective
    I really like this anime. The first episodes are great if you don't know how to play Vanguard because they work also as a tutorial video to explain the main rules of the game. I like the main character, is a good kid who just wants to socialize and make friends. He knows nothing at the beginning of the show but he learns quickly. It's easy to see why the audience will feel sympathy for him ...

    An anime that's better than Yu-Gi-Oh (in my opinion that is)
    It's been a while since I've seen this anime but I'll give out based on what I remember.
    This anime focuses on middle schoolers playing a card game known as "Vanguard" and they play at a card shop then at tournaments. I love the plot and aspect of it and got hooked on it immediately within the first 5 minutes of it. If you've enjoyed this, there are 2 other seasons to check out. I'll do seasons 2 ...

    Cardfight Vanguard :)
    As i`ve seen YU-GI-OH! i wondered if this anime would be up to my standards when i came across it . So I watched a few episodes and found it surprisingly good, i liked it better than YU-GI-OH!. As the interesting plot lines, characters and good opening and closing theme tunes it certainly got me interested. It`s slow at first but gets better near the middle of the series and when Aichi gets ...

    This show is amazing
    I stopped playing Yu-Gi-Oh! 2 years ago and stopped watching the anime about halfway through 5D's. The card game started becoming extremely unbalanced and the show was getting too ridiculous. In this show they play professionally without too much of that "evil power" heart of the cards nonsense. It's got a lot of humor and a lot of character development. I feel the anime rivals the first 2 seasons ...
