About the Author

Akira Itou is a writer, gamer, and international best-selling comic artist. Over the last decade his work has been associated with some of the world's most popular trading card games - YuGiOh and Vanguard.

 Raised in Aichi Prefecture, Japan, Itou cut his teeth as an assistant for Studio Dice and YuGiOh creator Kazuki Takahashi. After working as an assistant on the original YuGiOh comic, Itoh would evnetually come to draw the YuGiOh sequel YuGiOh R. The series was a regular feature in Shonen Jump Magazine for four years and significantly expanded the brand from comic for teens to full-blown gaming narrative. After working with the YuGiOh franchise for nearly a decade, Itoh would pair up with Japanese trading card leaders BushiRoad to develop a new card game - Vanguard. Vanguard would premiere as a serialized manga in 2010 to lay the foundation for a TRPG which would debut globally February 2011. The brand has spun-off a weekly prime-time animated TV series, which is currently available globally in English on YouTube, with Itou as part of the production team.

Cardfight Vanguard is a TCG (trading card game) like no other, and I've lived a while so I have played several different kinds.
I was excited after reading this book because it is not exactly like the anime. I didn't see a rating on the book, so I would say it around teen age, for mild violence and slight mild language.

Within this book you get a Blaster Blade Royal Paladin, and if you order this one (special edition) you also get fifty cards, two paper place mats and two set of rules. It's for quick battles, you get 25 royal paladin and 25 kagero.

Royal Paladin cards are: stardust trumpeter, weapons dealer govannon, bringer of luck epona, starlight unicorn, little sage marron, knight of silence gallatin, knight of the harp tristen, stardrive dragon

Kagero cards are: lizard runner undeux, embodiment of spear tahr, dragon dancer monica, embodiment of armor bahr, wyvern strike jarren, wyvern strike tajas, dragon knight nehalem, crested dragon

The story itself teaches you the game if you don't already know how to play. Also there are a set of rules, frequently asked question and answers, and descriptions of card abilities in the back of the book (so you still get rules-and blaster blade- even if you don't get the special edition). There is also a little quiz in the back to help determine what your clan could be.

I originally had an issue with no shipment. However, I notified the seller and was quickly sent another package. The seller sent it very fast for free and the package came in mint condition. I thank them for their great services and polite response. I will definitely buy again from them in the future.

As for the product itself it was definitely a surprise to see how different the first few episodes are in the anime when compared to the manga. Also, the art direction is a little different too. However, at it's core the show and manga are the same. I loved reading this, it was an easy read. Also, in both trial decks there are four cards with alternate art which is very cool. Perhaps they will be worth something one day. This is a must-have especially at it's price.

If you enjoy the anime you'll love the manga. Give this one a look, you won't be disappointed.

It's great, I recommend both for those who have not seen the anime or if, and for those who play the game or not
