Instead of sitting in front of your computer screen in a dark room, you are now standing in a planet that’s just like ours, only that it’s called ‘Ghey’.
You are nothing but a weak spirit formed on this planet.
However, these weak spirits are granted two special abilities.
One: The ability to bamboozle viewers from outside the fourth wall by coming up with lots of bull and unexplained rules. When finally explaining said rules, one must carefully demonstrate how the game seems like nothing more than a Weiss Scharz ripoff but with 3 ‘rearguards’, with some Duel Masters thrown into the mix.
Two: the ability to change forms into ‘Vanguards’, leaving you with various chances to do 100% accurate cosplay. This is where the likes of furries and various fetishists can jack off. Always looked – and sounded – like a girl? Stardust Trumpeter is your starting card.So what are you waiting for? Ride the Vanguard with me! (but in a secluded place) ————————————————————————————————————————–
Honestly, something died within me when this show aired. For one, it’s nothing but a shameless advertisement for some card game no-one plays. And for someone who’s played various TCGs (and wasted lots of moolah) , this game (what’s the card game called again?) seems to be nothing but a poorly conceived love-child from various card games I used to play or had played. The entire ‘trigger’ , ‘rearguard’ and ‘life counter’ gimmicks reminded me of Weiss Scharz, a game I played once simply because my friend bought me a LS deck for the lols. The poses, the names (BLUSTER BLADER? ) all reminded me of Yu-Gi-Oh and Duel Masters. Heck, the lead reminds me of Yugi too, since he gets his own ass kicked in the first episode by showing bullies his prized possessions and then proceeds to meet a character with spiky, shonen-style hair who speaks in passion about card games. (YGO, ‘season 0.)
JAM Project even sang the OP for this, which makes me wonder why.
tl;dr Watch this only if you’re really, really bored. And if you don’t mind not having good characters, plot, or even action.
