Japanese Singer-songwriter DAIGO will be starring in a hybrid live action-anime movie based on the popular Bushiroad trading card game, Cardfight!! Vanguard.


The announcement was made during the Cardfight!! Vanguard special conference last December 16, 2013. The event also announced that there will be a fourth Vanguard anime series titled Legion Mate-Hen which is scheduled to air Spring 2014.

The movie will have a live action and an anime portion. Daigo, who has previously starred in a live-action Cardfight!! Vanguard adaptation will once again return as the main character for the live-action portions of the hybrid movie while Vanguard anime main characters Aichi and Kai will join forces for the anime portion.


The live action portion’s cast will include Suzuko Mimori, Taizou Shiina and Takuma Sueno and will be directed by Takashi Motoki. The anime portion meanwhile will be directed by Black Cat and Ben-to director Shin Itagi. The movie is slated to hit Japanese theaters Fall 2014.

The fourth anime, Legion Mate-Hen meanwhile will pick up where the third anime series, Cardfight!! Vanguard: Link Joker-Hen left off. A new unit known as Bushi★7 has been made and they will be singing the anime’s opening song titled “V-Road”. The group will be composed of DAIGO, Psychic Lover, Suara, Izumi Kita, Suzuko Mimori, and Shūta Morishima.
