Cardfight!! Vanguard, the aptly titled card game/card game battle anime, is getting a live-action drama this spring. The special directed by Takashi Motoki (Mousou Deka) airs May 3rd (a Thursday, but a holiday). Playing Aichi is musician/actor Daigo (from the band Breakerz, also starring in the upcoming Ultraman Saga movie with members of AKB48).
The Japanese game maker Bushiroad announced during its streamed Vanguard Special Conference on Tuesday that a live-action television adaptation of its Cardfight!! Vanguard trading card game has been green-lit. BREAKERZ band musician DAIGO will star in this project, which will air on May 3, Japan's Constiution Memorial Day, from 8:30 to 10:00 a.m. Takashi Motoki (Mōsō Deka!) is directing this project, which is described as the "first(?) ever live-action card-game" program.
The card game is a collaboration between Yu-Gi-Oh! R manga creator Akira Ito, the original Duel Masters technical advisor Satoshi Nakamura, and Bushiroad President Takaaki Kidani. The game already inspired a television anime series in 2011, and Crunchyroll has been streaming it into several countries as it airs in Japan. The second series, Cardfight!! Vanguard: Asia Circuit Hen, will premiere this year.
