posted on by Egan Loo
The online media service Crunchyroll announced on Saturday that it will stream the Cardfight!! Vanguard: Asia Circuit television anime sequel into several countries. Crunchyroll's stream will begin at 9:30 p.m. EDT in the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom.
Asia Circuit premiered in Japan in April after the end of the first Cardfight!! Vanguard anime, which Crunchyroll also streamed. To catch up, Crunchyroll will stream three previous episodes from the back catalog every week.
Crunchyroll provided the following synopsis:
The card game “Vanguard” has swept the entire world and changed the fate of one boy. His name is Aichi Sendou. To make an impression on Toshiki Kai, a Cardfighter he deeply admires, Aichi begins to play Vanguard and soon becomes caught up in the fun and charm of the game.Through playing Vanguard, Aichi first meets his teammates-to-be, Misaki Tokura and Kamui Katsuragi, then encounters a great number of allies and rivals, his bond to them strengthening as time goes by. At one point, though, the peculiar power known as Psyqualia awakens within Aichi. It's the ultimate power that allows Aichi to be in control of his fights by putting him in synch with the planet Cray… However, the power is too strong and Aichi becomes addicted to it, thereby losing himself.
