Original Title in Japanese: Card Fight!! Vanguard
Aichi used to be a shy 8th grader whom no one really took notice. He had nothing special going on with his life, and he did not have a particularly positive outlook on life either. He did, however, have one thing he held close to his heart, and that was a card called "Blaster Blade" from a certain card game.
Finally he decides to bid his uneventful days farewell and participate in this game – a card game known as "Vanguard." The game is staged in a parallel universe on a planet called "Cray," and its gameplay style is so revolutionary it had immediately taken the world by storm.
Aichi quickly finds himself captivated by and immersed in Vanguard. He, along with newfound game buddies such as Misaki Tokura and Kamui Katsuragi, battles many competitors and rivals, and spends fun and fulfilling days, all the while not forgetting to grow up.
Aichi is also on a mission – that is, to find a master Vanguard Fighter named Toshiki Kai and to fight him – again. Toshiki is a high schooler also well-known for being a cold-hearted lone wolf. For Aichi, Toshiki is something more – he is an important Vanguard Fighter who had first introduced Aichi to the card game.
So Aichi will practice, battle and polish his Vanguard fighting skills hoping to one day be able to battle on equal grounds with Toshiki, his Vanguard idol, and to perhaps even get a nod of approval from him.
