WINTER ANIME SEASON 2013/2014 PREVIEW: Z/X IGNITION

z/x ignition animeZ/X Ignition is one of the fantasy anime series of the season. Cards, bishounen and bishoujo will fill-up the screen in this card-game based TV anime series! With each character’s own world at stake, the battle of a lifetime awaits those who dare.

Expect a lot from this show if you enjoy the Broccoli and Nippon Ichi Software’s collectible game with cards entitled “Z/X Zillions of enemy X”!

It is coming up – this 9th January!

In a world where everything seems okay and normal as it would for all of us right now, several years in the future, five black holes appear around the Earth. Unlike they would usually, though, these holes actually don’t absorb all around them, but release multiple creatures into the ordinary human world. In fact, these are the creatures from the alternate timelines of our world. They all know how to call forth special cards’ powers and abilities.

Coming into one place means only one thing – they need to fight each other to the end in order to secure the existence of their own timelines.

The surviving fighters will live and everything else will disappear. Whose side will you take?

Here is a PV that the production committee shared with all of us not too long ago…

From this video, we can easily see that this show will surely bring a lot of eye-candies for both the female and the male parts of the otaku-verse. If you want to know more about the characters, here is a sheet with them and below you can see who will play whom in this new card game-based fantasy anime series Z/X Ignition!

I fully agree, especially adding the fact that this is based on a card game…
