I’ve called you two here for one reason. Shinemon Nitta. A short while ago,
he intruded into my private room. Seriously, yo? Don’t tell me that guy
wearing glasses was Shinemon?! He gained entrance with your S Card, Nanami. Seriously, yo?! Who are you kidding, Tonori?!
You were right next to me! Who’s that? I believe she’s a friend of Shinemon. You do know what to do, correct? Card Capital: Defend It to the End
Oppose the Evil Esuka Group’s Oppression!
No Foreclosures Hello! Huh? Has something happened? Tatsuya! I’ll say something’s happened! Shinemon is going to do a flyover! F-Flyover? No, he’s going to be a holdover! Oh! My mistake! Shinemon didn’t take any of the exams
at school, so he’ll have to repeat the year! What happened? When we stole our way into
Esuka headquarters the other day, I saw… …that woman’s… N-Nosebleed? What? What did you see, Shinemon?! I can’t say it! If I do, it’ll expose you to danger, too! It’s that bad?! And I’m scared of Esuka’s vengeance, so I’ve been holed up here 24 hours a day. Shinemon, if you act now, there’s still time! The teachers said that if you do well enough
on the make-up exams, you won’t have to retreat! That’s repeat. Thanks, Mark. But… …I’m not taking any make-ups! What are you saying?! Even if I took the make-ups now,
the result would be the same! So I choose to quit school altogether, and take
the path of living as this shop’s manager! You just don’t want to study, do you? You got me with an average jab! Do you really think you’d get away with
becoming manager for a lousy reason like that?! Just take the make-up exams! I told you, no! I’m quitting school! E-Excuse me! Please take the make-ups. While you’re out, I’ll protect this shop
as your number one disciple! Number one disciple? Since when? Well said! Hand over the shop key! The shop is in your hands! Right! Uh, but… What, are you going to say you don’t
trust your number one disciple? No, that’s not the issue… The strength of imagination! That’s the strength of Vanguard! Don’t get dominated by
your opponent’s imagination! Rewrite that imagination! Remind 3
First Time Holding the Fort Who is it? It’s me! Open up! Okay! At once! Did you forget something? You’re the one who forgot! Wh-Why?! What if I’d been one of
Esuka’s goons in disguise?! Don’t open that door, even if you think it’s me! Don’t take Esuka and her lackeys lightly! Okay! I’ve learned my lesson! Hurry up, Shinemon. Coming! See you later! Right! I’m counting on you! Say, Tatsuya… Are you sure you want to be that guy’s disciple? My big brother’s a real goof, Ramen Noodles
My big brother’s a real goof, but Shinemon’s so bad, he’s Applesauce Cinnamon!
Salt but Shinemon’s so bad, he’s Applesauce Cinnamon! Barricading himself in a card shop! But his passion for Vanguard is the real thing. The beauty of Shinemon’s playing, his concentration and inspiration,
his luck of the draw… All of them are wonderful! He’s my ideal… my vanguard! Besides… …this shop somehow reminds me of the card shop I used to go to. When I went there, I was always among friends. I had a lot of good times. I think Shinemon is trying
to protect that kind of place. And I’d like to help him out. Okay. Then until Shinemon gets back,
I’ll hold the fort with you. Make-up Exam
minimum of 60 points Don’t be discouraged by imagining failure. Rewrite that imagination! Shinemon Nitta Mathematics I – Mathematics A
Shinemon Nitta Verily, I do not like the way this is going. I thought Shinemon would be back by now. Are you hungry? Yes, a little… Come with me. Why don’t we have these? Are you sure it’s okay? Cooking in the shop? Ramen It’s fine if I do it!
Ramen Man, I’m starvin’. You get poor mileage, Tonori. We just had curry. I could use three more bowls, yo. We have to take care of business first. Somethin’ smells good… Wh-Who is it? Is Mikuru there? Me? Hey! Shindou! She’s here, yo. Hiss! Hiss! We meet again, huh, kitty? Who are you? I’m Nanami Gonomi. And I’m Tonori Fujinami, yo. “Fujinamiyo”? Just call me Tonori. Oh, okay! That’s… …the legendary S Card,
given only to S Rank members?! What is it?! These two work for Esuka! Hey. Would you come with us? Shindou! H-Hey! Tatsuya! Wh-What should I do? I was told not to let anyone
into the shop, no matter what! Somebody, help! That’s right! I’m the sub manager right now. Until Shinemon gets back,
I have to protect this shop! Excuse me! I challenge you… …to a Vanguard match! Cardfighter Solidarity If I win, you have to
leave this shop without Mikuru!
Cardfighter Solidarity Then if we win, we get
to take her with us, right?
Cardfighter Solidarity Cardfighter Solidarity Tonori, you take this one. If I win, can I get a double cheeseburger? We’ll make it a combo, with cola and fries. Come to think of it,
I didn’t catch your name, yo. Tatsuya Tachibana. I’m Shinemon’s number one disciple! There’s no way you can win this, silly. Why do you say that?! Out of the S Rank members,
Tonori is ranked number two. Who’s number one? Obviously, that would be me. Stand up, Vanguard! First Aid Celestial, Peniel! Spring Breeze Messenger! I go first. I ride! Marking Celestial, Arabhaki! Can I beat an S Rank member? No, I have to beat him, at least to keep my promise to Shinemon! His clan is Angel Feather, huh? A legion of angels that are
good at assisting and healing. Angels? You didn’t know? I don’t play Vanguard. Then why are you here?! Well, that’s… a good question. Whatever. I’ll explain it
so even you can understand. Tonori’s clan is Gold Paladin. It’s a tight-knit order of
gold knights within United Sanctuary. I ride. Little Battler, Tron. On top of that, I call
Evil Slaying Swordsman, Haugan! Let’s go, Haugan! No problem! No guard! Uh oh, he didn’t guard… When the Vanguard’s attack hits, Haugan can summon a friend from the deck. I superior call Listener of Truth, Dindrane, yo. Dindrane’s skill activates. And then Tron also calls on a friend. What?! I’m gonna finish this ASAP, yo. Dindrane boosts and Sagramore attacks, yo! Hot Shot Celestial, Samyaza guards! Even though it’s only the second turn,
he’s already using grade 3 units?! If you’re not careful,
it’ll be over before you know it. Tatsuya! Don’t get flustered, Tatsuya! Shinemon! Don’t be afraid! What’s important is not getting dominated
by your opponent’s imagination. Be assertive and rewrite that imagination! That’s right. He’s just dealt me opening damage. I’ll calm down and look
for a path to a counterattack! I ride! Rear Impetus Celestial, Armaiti! Its skill activates! I superior call Underlay Celestial, Hesediel
from the Damage Zone! Come, Million Ray Pegasus! To me, Dantegal! Drive check! Critical trigger! I give all of the effects
to Million Ray Pegasus! Go! First check. Second check. Yes! That makes 2 damage! Looks like you’re somewhat
familiar with it after all. But… …I wonder how much longer he can hold out. Huh? What do you mean? I ride! Liberator of the Flute, Escrad! Its skill activates! I superior call
Stronghold of the Black Chains, Hoel! Again?! And then I call Player of the Holy Bow, Viviane! Its skill activates! I superior call Hoel! Go! Samyaza, please! Outta my way! No guard! Drive check. A critical trigger?! I give the power to Viviane
and the extra critical to Escrad! Damage check! I’m still not done with you! No guard! Now he has 4 damage. It’s your turn. Hurry up, already! What’s with him? He seems totally different from before. But there’s no sense thinking about it. I have to focus on my own fighting! I ride! Mobile Hospital, Feather Palace! Imaginary Gift, Protect I! Next, I call Hesediel! Its skill activates! I call Wild Shot Celestial, Raguel! Raguel’s skill activates! I superior call Arabhaki from the Drop Zone! Hesediel boosts, and Raguel attacks! I guard with Flame of Victory! I’m not done yet! No guard! Twin drive! First check! Second check! A heal trigger?! All right! I’m still not done! With a boost from Hesediel,
Million Ray Pegasus attacks Sagramore! Sagramore! How about that?! Not bad. But you just lost this by
not clinching it right there! Why…? I still have only 3 damage. I ride! Knight of Fury, Agravain! Imaginary Gift, Accel I! I can’t take any more! I’m so hungry… …I feel like I’m gonna die! What’s this now? When Tonori gets hungry, he loses his reason and becomes a brute. Go ahead. Eat as much as you like. Devour all the prey! Why do I have butterflies in my stomach? I have a bad feeling about this. Nitta! Y-Yes?! Well done. You passed. It’s a miracle! Now you have English, physics, modern Japanese, art, chemistry, social studies, economics… What’s this? “I’m… worried about… the shop… so… …go on ahead.” You can depend on me! Tron attacks your Vanguard! Armaiti guards! Jerkface! Quit trying to buy yourself time! Go! Damage check! That makes 4 damage! Hoel boosts, and Kahedin attacks your Vanguard! Sunny Smile Angel guards! Agravain attacks your Vanguard! Its skill activates! I’m gonna gobble up your lives! Delish! What are you trying to do?! It absorbed all its allies into the Soul, and now, for each ally I called this turn,
I can summon another one from my deck! For this turn, I called three cards! Wh-What?! You can still attack with that many units?! You ain’t seen nothing yet! Escrad’s skill activates! I superior call Flame of Victory! Sunny Smile Angel guards! Twin drive! First check! Front trigger! With that, all of the front row units
get +10,000 power! Second check! Escrad attacks your Vanguard! It’s no use. Even if I guard against this,
he still has two more attacks. I can’t stave them off! No guard… Go, you guys. I’m sorry, Shinemon! I couldn’t… …keep… …my promise! I’m back! Shinemon has more make-ups
to do, so I came back… Tatsuya? Are you here? Tatsuya! What the heck happened?! Agents… of Esuka… took Shindou… away… Why…? Great! Next is health and physical education. Nooo! The 30-second card intro segment! Today’s featured card
is Tatsuya’s ace in the hole, Mobile Hospital, Feather Palace! Mobile Hospital, Feather Palace
Mobile Hospital, Feather Palace! When attacking, if the player does
a Soulblast with two grade 3 cards, this unit gains +20,000 power
and an extra critical! On top of that, an opponent’s
perfect guard won’t work against this unit, giving you the perfect chance
to turn things around! Though Angel Feather’s specialty is defense, this unit can become the
keystone of your end-game offense! With this card, you too can
“Ride The Vanguard”! Ride The Vanguard!
With this card, you too can
“Ride The Vanguard”! Even though Tatsuya was
utterly defeated by Esuka lackeys, you must take all those make-up exams,
or else reheat everything! Why, who left leftovers in the fridge, Mark…?! You meant “repeat”! Sorry! “Crow’s feet,” right? As you grow older,
twinkles in the eye turn into wrinkles… No, silly! “Rhenium”? That’s a chemical element! “Realm”? That’s a fantasyland! “Lupin”? Who, the third-generation gentleman thief
that travels all across the world Remind 4
Who, the third-generation gentleman thief
