New Episode This Weekend!

Episode 47: True Feelings

Within the Tower of Light, the one who appears before Tokoha is, as expected, Satoru Enishi. On the other hand, the one that stands before Am is a phantom that is overly considerate of Am, materialized as Luna. What will become of the bonds between the girls…!?

Cardfight!! Vanguard G NEXT


How did you find last week’s Episode 46 (Japanese-dubbed) of Cardfight!! Vanguard G Stride Gate? I’m sooooo worried about Shion (。•́︿•̀。) Nonetheless, let’s watch this weekend’s Episode 47 and see how the story develops.

If you are following the Japanese-dubbed episodes, we are approaching the end of the Stride Gate series. With a couple of episodes left to go, we will soon enter the next season of Cardfight!! Vanguard G, Cardfight!! Vanguard G NEXT!

The name of “Cardfight!! Vanguard G NEXT” has been revealed previously at Bushiroad Strategy Plan Presentation 2016 Summer. On the lovely Sunday of September 18, 2016 where the Tokyo Game Show 2016 is held, more information on Cardfight!! Vanguard G will be revealed! The stage event will start from 11:00am JST onwards. It will be live-streamed on Nico Nico Douga in Japanese. The information will also be revealed in English the following week. Do stay tuned to our updates of the upcoming new season! Did I mention that there will be a new character in Cardfight!! Vanguard G NEXT?


The English-dubbed Cardfight!! Vanguard G NEXT episodes will also be available when the current English-dubbed Stride Gate series has aired all its episodes. In line with the new season, the <<Shadow Paladin>> Trial Deck, G-TD10 Ritual of Dragon Sorcery, and the next booster pack, G-BT09 Divine Dragon Caper will debut in December. We have unveiled their logos and banners in this week’s Cardfight!! Vanguard Weekly Bites, and here is more information on the two new holiday releases!

The new trial deck featured is also used by the new character in the upcoming Cardfight!! Vanguard G NEXT animation. As the name “Ritual of Dragon Sorcery” suggests, <<Shadow Paladin>> gains a new clan-exclusive ability, “Ritual”! In addition, a postcard featuring the new season of the Cardfight!! Vanguard G animation series will also be included.

A week after the release of the G Trial Deck Vol. 10, get ready for the launch of the G Booster Pack Vol. 9 “Divine Dragon Caper”! This booster pack features the following clans: <<Shadow Paladin>>, <<Angel Feather>>, <<Narukami>>, <<Spike Brothers>>, <<Gear Chronicle>> and <<Aqua Force>>, as well as <<Cray Elemental>>. New trump cards used by the protagonist team and rival teams will be featured in this booster, and surely, <<Shadow Paladin >> cards from G-BT09 will serve well in boosting the new trial deck.

In addition, the highly anticipated SP Clan Pack will also be included in this booster. With 5 SP cards inserted in one pack available for each of the four of the featured clans (<<Shadow Paladin>>, <<Narukami>>, <<Spike Brothers>> and <<Aqua Force>>), it will definitely be the special pack you would be gladly summon all your lucky stars to receive!

Meanwhile, there are 5 special cards being reissued as well. These popular units will make their reappearance in the new booster. Not only will there be new illustrations and RRR treatment, their powered up versions are also included in this release!!

The 5 cards are:

Revenger, Raging Form Dragon
Eradicator, Dragonic Descendant
Conquering Supreme Dragon, Dragonic Vanquisher “VOLTAGE”
Storm Dominator, Commander Thavas
Blue Storm Supreme Dragon, Glory Maelstrom

Are you excited about the new releases? We are not stopping here. In January, there will be an exclusive release only for the English edition product! Uhm.. we would like to keep it secret first. Just stay tuned, and see you next week!
