posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Bushiroad revealed at the AnimeJapan 2018 event on Thursday that its Future Card Buddyfight franchise will get a new television anime titled Future Card Buddyfight X: All-Star Fight that will premiere on April 7. The anime will stream on the franchise's official YouTube channel with both a Japanese and English version.
The Future Card Buddyfight card game will also receive an "All-Star Fight" booster pack that will ship on April 7, and the new anime is based on the booster pack.
The previous television anime in the franchise, Future Card Buddyfight X (pronounced "Battsu"), premiered last April. Crunchyroll is streaming the series as it airs in Japan. The series is also streaming on the official Future Card Buddyfight YouTube channel in both English-subtitled and English-dubbed versions.
The first series based on Bushiroad's card game premiered in January 2014, and episodes streamed with an English dub on the official Future Card Buddyfight YouTube channel shortly after airing in Japan. Crunchyroll also began streaming dubbed episodes that April. Both platforms are still streaming all 64 episodes of the first series, as well as the first 25 episodes of the second series, with an English dub.
However, from the second series' episode 26 onward the stream switched to Japanese audio with English subtitles. Future Card Buddyfight Triple D, the third television anime series, premiered in April 2016. The official Future Card Buddyfight YouTube channel and Crunchyroll streamed English-subtitled episodes as they aired in Japan.
Update: Added key visual from new series.
