posted on by Karen Ressler
Canadian television channel Teletoon's schedule is listing the Future Card Buddyfight anime on its schedule for Thursday, January 8 at 7:00 a.m. EST. While the website lists it as "Buddy Fight," online television guide Zap2It gives the full title Future Card Buddyfight.
The listing does not give an episode number, but says it will be the first season. Zap2It lists a second episode on Thursday, January 15 at the same time.
The anime is part of a franchise inspired by Bushiroad's new trading card game of the same name. Crunchyroll is streaming the English-dubbed version episodes via its media service. Bushiroad is also streaming the English dub on YouTube and Hulu. The series is continuing for a second year.
Future Card Buddyfight takes place around the year 2030, in Japan's new capital city of Chō Tokyo. Humans intermingle with beings from the parallel worlds of "Affinity Dimensions." The "Buddyfight" game chooses humans ("Buddyfighters") and partners them with Buddy Monsters from Shinkinkai, and the duo fight against other Buddyfighters. The battles in these games can sometimes even influence the fate of nations.
Gaō Mikado is a sixth-year student at the "Aibo Academy" elementary division who longs to be a Buddyfighter and to be partnered with a Monster. One day Gaō notices a young boy being bullied by delinquents, and he helps him out using his Aiki-jujutsu skills. Drum Bunker Dragon, a Monster and the son of the hero of Dragon World, watches Gaō's actions, and decides to form a pact with him as his buddy.
