Still waiting on Crunchyroll to tell us if or if not they have the license for the second season (seemly less likely by the minute since they were showing season 1 a half an hour after it showed in Japan). BUT UNTIL THEN!

Anyone watch the first episode yet? And if so, got any details on what route the storyline is going to take from here?

Well.. some weirdness has been going with Vanguard. I found set 1 boosters on sale at Walmart today (and Cardfight wikia is reporting its in Walmart's in MANY states right now). Bushiroad must be getting ready to launch the English dub of the first anime.

I think Bushiroad is/would be fools to not allow a license on the 2nd series, but I'm hoping Crunchy does pick it up if they are able.

I've been hearing about Vanguard in Wal-Marts as well. Are they selling packs for 4 bucks each just like they do with YGO or are they cheaper?

I found out Walmart was selling the booster packs just a couple days ago, bought me a couple too.

as for the second season its unlikely that CR didn't license it or isn't trying to license it.

Unfortunately, they are $3.98 a pack, much more then then going price of $2.99 a pack online. A full box is $3.98x30 (I actually took the entire box to the price checking machine to confirm this. lol). The big kicker is no starter decks at Walmart, just set 1 boosters (set 2 is already out in English).

The release schedule for the English version is about to get weird. We will eventually get all of the cards, but from now one, when a new set comes out in Japan, the English version should launch a week after, but Bushiroad has said it could be upwards of a month.

So, currently we have.

Trial Decks-
TD1 Royal Paladin - Blaster Blade
TD2 Kagero - Dragonic Overlord

Sets
BT01 Decent of the King
BT02 Onslaught of Dragon Souls

Then things get weird, since might get TD3-6 all at once, or get TD5 and 6 first. O_o. Since Bushiroad's release dates are so iffy, most card shops (like Hammergirl) don't get the official release days until just a few weeks before their actual release. I just can't wait until we're caught up and have everything in English... we'll get their with Bushiroad's plan.. sooner rather then later.

I highly recommend buying a starter deck (or two, one of a friend!) to get started. Then check Cardfight wikia for more detailed rules then what comes with the starter decks.

I've already bought both starter decks and 3 boxes (2 of set 1 and 1 of set 2) from other places. Its not worth it if Wal-Mart is going to sell them at 4 bucks a pack (10% off employee discount means little in that case :P).

1) The episode aired 1 hour ago, so yes, it's out
2) They are not preparing to release the English dub. There's already an English dub going on in Singapore and it has been since October. Bushiroad has made no announcement and hasn't had any plans to bring the anime here. Period.

I think they didn't take it this time around ;( It just seems to weird that, if they were going to broadcast the episodes, they don't have it done already.

It's still possible that they're going to announce it today and air it later. They've done this with other anime before.

But, yeah, chances are rather slim :/
