Wow the blogging never seems to end, does it? Is anybody really reading this? It seems I get a lot of spammers, but not many actual readers. Oh well. I guess all I can do is blog and hope for the best. Review time.
So cardfight vanguard is essentially Yu-Gi-Oh and Duel Masters combined. Yeah another anime based on a card game. I know what you are thinking, and trust me I had no intentions of ever watching this. But since I committed myself to writing these first impression reviews, I said what they hey, why not this anime as well. And you know what this anime wasn’t half bad.
Here is some things I thought really stood out about it.
~ Ok so yeah the first few minutes of this anime were very boring and slow paced. But once the actual gaming picked up it was quite enjoyable to watch.
~ The design of the entire anime is quite well done, love the characters and the “units” as they are called.
~ The game seems like it would be great to play, better than duel masters that is, not sure if I could call it better than Yugioh.
~ The end of the first episode, ends in a cliffhanger, like makes you want to watch more. I hate when that happens because I was not planning on continuing this anime, but guess I have to.
~ I love how the characters remind me of those in past anime. Like Kai is a dead ringer for Kaiba. The blonde haired dude, whose name escapes me is a Joey. And Sendou is definitely Yugi.
I guess I will have to continue to get more out of this anime. It was intriguing and actually seems like it won’t be cliched.
