Watch Kitta Izumi and Morishima Shuuta fight it out in new Vanguard tutorial video

"I'll do it, Morishima. I'll show you me when I'm playing seriously." (ʘ‿ʘ✿)

Kitta Izumi and Morishima Shuuta, the respective voices of Tokura Misaki and Nitta Shin in the Cardfight!! Vanguard anime series, appeared in a special tutorial video for the new Standard-format Vanguard trading card game. Morishima plays the Royal Paladin Star Drive deck while Kitta plays the Kagerо̄ Crested Dragon deck.

In the video, they demonstrate:
  • The basics of setting a First Vanguard, drive checking triggers, and conducting battle.
  • The new redraw/mulligan procedure. (You stack the cards you're putting back on the bottom of your deck, then draw the replacements, then shuffle.)
  • How to apply the Imaginary Gift ability, "Force."
Although much of the video is in Japanese, the terminology used is mostly romanized English that will ring familiar to any avid viewers of the officially-subbed anime series.
