The new animation series is an adaptation of the titular manga by Akira Ito and features familiar characters in the long running franchise, Aichi Sendou and Toshiki Kai as protagonists.
Depicting a youthful story about Cardfighters who clash passionately through challenges against each other, the new season follows the main protagonist, Aichi Sendou, as his life takes an exciting turn when he is reunited with Toshiki Kai, the person who gave him an important rare card, “Blaster Blade” from the game, “Vanguard”.
The series features a returning Japanese cast.
