  1. Yeah okay Bandai is losing their minds after the success of one card game they think it's okay to just go ham and release a bunch, they need to let games develop and not release games back to back and actually support games but it's making me worry about the future of Digimon as a card game

  2. The concept is good but if they just paste in anime screenshots, then I'm not really interested. It feels like they're doing the bare minimum with exclusive title.

  3. I think I'd rather focus on one TCG before I even get hyped for another. Starting one TCG is already a heavy investment of money and time.

  4. Grand Archive is much better than this. GA the best anime TCG

  5. I wish I could but I'm playing Digimon, Vanguard, and OP…if it weren't for Vanguard's dry spell, my wallet wouldn't exist anymore.

  6. I doubt this game releases in the U.S. but if it does I don’t see it last long.

  7. I'm concerned for what Bandai is doing here. Dbs and digimon were different enough that they could exist simultaneously. One Piece already split those communities and then battle spirits is probably gonna shave a bit off all 3. Adding a 5th game into the mix that directly conflicts with the Shonen based market of all these games sounds like a horrible idea. My only reason I'm not freaking out about digimon dying is that the hyping up of the 3rd anni on the stream.

    On another note, I've heard MHA isn't doing great so if this comes out overseas I can definitely see MHA going under.

  8. If they’re open to using Video Game assets for the cards, that might be the move for MHA. (Assuming Bandai is the publisher for the MHA game).

    Like the cards might just be Video Game art, and that could be a way to get MHA licensed.

    And personally, I probably won’t be able to support this (even though I really like Bleach). Like, One Piece and Digimon have already maxed me out

  9. I am super excited about my favourite anime hunter x hunter, how ever the art are not excited, I hope they put more into it,

  10. Yeah, Idolmaster is reused game assets, but since it's from a game and not an anime, it looks way better since the artstyle doesn't need to be simplified like for animation.

    Also, the only reason i'd be willing to try this game is Idolmaster. I wonder if the booster will divide the different idol units as archetypes of their own, or if the entire franchise will be one single archetype? If it's the first, i'd gladly play a L'Antica deck, or a Houkago Climax Girls deck, otherwise i'll be just an Idol player lol

    We'll have to wait and see how this turns out.

  11. Bandai needs to stop making all these new games and just make crossover cards for their existing games. I want to evolve metalgreymon into ichigo and tap my Deku tamer card to give my Shounen Jump digimon +1 SA when it evolves

  12. If a Tales of the Abyss deck drops then I'm buying it. I doubt it'll be a game I can get my group to play sadly.

  13. As much as I love bleach being in a game…I feel this game might be an overall mistake. My reason for starting digimon (originally played YGO only for like 10 years) was the art and the individual thought into that artwork. If its screenshots, that is my first reason to not be excited. In terms of IP, they have rights to all of it but this may mean that they will have less attention to digi, and OP. I am hoping that is not the case. I would love it if they keep digi for another 2-3 years or figure how to reinvent it. OP we have no worries of d/t the how vast the story and characters are. We can make Luffy in every color and that means we have a good 10 years before it starts to die off.

  14. The game mat looks almost identical to Cardfight Vangard

  15. More like Fortnite of card games lol

  16. This is nothing new, there's already the super smash of anime on tcg and it's called Weiss Schwarz. The main difference its that all these titles are licensed in JP by Bandai and everything it's shonen. Do proper research next time.

  17. I very excited I just load on manga vol and now this 😂😂lol but yeah I was playing one piece card game. So it be that and this with some vol excited 🔥🔥🔥🔥😮

  18. Oof they are trying to compete with bushiroad then oof

  19. Ok, why does this need to exist? Its just Weiss Shwartz under a different name more or less and very few people play that game.

  20. This looks cool but sadly it might just die off.

  21. I mean there's already a crossover card game called Weiss Schwarz. It already includes properties like Persona, Attack on Titan and Dragon Maid.

  22. Tfw I only know about 4 of the anime/games in that thumbnail

  23. dont think so good about another tcg they should watch on they other tcg dbs dying and digimon not so big in other regions like befoe….

  24. It'd be really funny if they put Digimon, Vanguard and/or Yugioh into this card game as well

  25. Isn't that Miyazaki Homura twitter @3:10?
    Honestly saying I can't wait for UA TCG as well.

  26. I would like it, but if it were a digital card game for cell phones and PCs, it wouldn't compete so much against other physical card games from the company itself

  27. For this to work in the US the sets would need to be larger and have a variety mix between IP. Sets could still have 2 or three properties be central to the set but would need 3 or four minor theme IP to fill the set out. Staying one IP per set will kill it, incentivizing players to buy the single set that had their favorite IP rather than a little from each set – more overall.

  28. It's almost they like making money by making old decks obsolete on 5 different playing fields

  29. Everyone just love’s Vanguard’s deck damage lmao

  30. bandai has fun games but theyre horrible about power creeping too hard too quickly by pumping out product every single month. theyre the peak of cash grab card games and take advantage of IP prestige and loyalty to do so. will not be supporting this at all

  31. One piece just came out
    I'm knee deep in digimon
    And I'm drowning in yugioh
    I think i'll pass on this unless it really picks up, I'll just drop one piece i guess 🤷‍♂️

  32. yeah gonna skip its just weiss again it would be amazing if you could mix and match any anime but can't you might only get one booster box for a couple anime and won't see any new cards for that series in a few years or ever

  33. I can’t get into Weiss because it has an identity crisis. This looks like an all shonen jump game which looks cool. If you notice all five Bandai trading card games look and play similar so I don’t think they’ll have a resource problem BUT I think battle spirits is going to have a tough time as the west likes established ips for tcgs. After magics 30th anniversary I left the game for digimon and dragon ball only ever watched two episodes of one piece lol

  34. just because this has mult ips don't mean it's WS

  35. Yep this looks like it was made specifically to compete with Weiss .
