Bushiroad has announced a new anime entry to the Cardfight!! Vanguard trading card game franchise, and its title is Vanguard overDress. Kinema Citrus will be animating the upcoming TV anime, but its character designer is the one that everyone’s talking about. That’s right folks, CLAMP, which is behind the Cardcaptor Sakura manga, as well as the character designs for Code Geass, will be acting as character designers for this new Cardfight!! Vanguard TV anime.
The anime itself will premiere on April 3, 2021 via TV Tokyo and other TV networks in Japan. Meanwhile, Bushiroad’s English Twitter page has revealed the story synopsis for this upcoming anime:
Yu-yu is a boy living in Kanazawa, Kaga Province. He is 15 years old and in his third year of junior high school. He has the ability to sense the feeling of others, but he is troubled by the fact that he cannot say no when asked. One day, Yu-yu could no longer stand going along with his sister’s hobby, so he ran away from home. The one who saves him is Megumi Okura. Megumi invites Yu-yu to a nighttime amusement park called “Wonder Hill” where her friends hang out.
At the amusement park, Yu-yu meets Megumi, Zakusa Ishikame, and Tomari Seto, members of “Team Blackout,” a group that meets to play Vanguard every night.
Tonight, a serious fight for the team’s flag will take place. Blackout’s leader, Danji Momoyama, and the mysterious and powerful fighter, Tohya Ebata. As Yu-yu stares at them, the card fight is soon eroded into a world of images. This is how Yu-yu encounters Vanguard, a world he has never seen before, and is drawn by its powerful allure – making new friends along the way.
