New Cardfight!! Vanguard G Card Game Anime Unveiled

posted on by Egan Loo
Mark Ishii, Junya Enoki, Emi Nitta star in story set 3 years after Legion Mate

The "Vanguard Announcement Evolution" panel at the "WGP2014 Vanguard Stage in Tokyo" event unveiled the Cardfight!! Vanguard G anime on Saturday. The previous anime tied to the Cardfight!! Vanguard card game, Cardfight!! Vanguard: Legion Mate, will end on October 19.

The story of Cardfight!! Vanguard G is set at Card Capital Shop No. 2 three years after Legion Mate. The main characters are Chrono Shindō (voiced by Mark Ishii, pictured bottom center in image above), Shion Kiba (Junya Enoki, pictured bottom left), and Tokoha Anjō (Emi Nitta, pictured bottom right). Shin Nitta, the manager of Card Capital Shop No. 2, and part-time worker Kamui Katsuragi will return in the new anime, as will Misaki Togura and Card Capital's owner. Also appearing is Kōji Ibuki (voiced by Mamoru Miyano) from this year's Gekijōban Cardfight!! Vanguard (Cardfight!! Vanguard the Movie). Ibuki will hold the key to the new story.

Miyano is also performing the opening theme song "Break It!", while Misaki Togura (as voiced by Izumi Kitta) is performing the ending "Dakara Genki for You."

The accompanying Cardfight!! Vanguard G card game will offer trial decks on November 22, January 22, and April. Booster packs will follow on December 5, February 20, and June, and an extra booster pack will go on sale in March.

The story of the character Aichi from the first Cardfight!! Vanguard anime will continue in the Monthly Bushiroad magazine, whose next issue will ship on Wednesday.

Cardfight!! Vanguard co-creator Takaaki Kidani had said in March that the franchise will get fifth, sixth and seventh seasons. (The current Cardfight!! Vanguard: Legion Mate-Hen anime is the fourth season.) Crunchyroll streamed the first three series subtitled as they aired in Japan while the Animax Asia dub was streamed on YouTube.
