“Four months after the battle at Nagoya Castle, Yu-yu and friends received an invitation to a tournament.

The existing characters from overDress will be competing with new characters from will+Dress such as Raika, Michiru, and Urara, to become the strongest of them all!”
‘Cardfight!! Vanguard overDress’ and its sequel ‘Cardfight!! Vanguard will+Dress’ is a reboot of the popular ‘Cardfight: Vanguard’ franchise. It is produced by Kinema Citrus, Wisp-o’-Animation, and Studio Jemi.
