Cardfight!! Vanguard Link Joker Chapter – 05

00000025Gotta love Tokura Misaki’s serious game-face…

Ride 109: The Birth of the Cardfight Club?!

00000020Spoken like a true autocrat douchebag

Finally, the Miyaji Student Council used their brains and decided that the best way to shut down Aichi’s nascent cardfight club is to act like traditional politicians and power-trip on Aichi on co., by spreading black propaganda about them and making a sudden deadline which expires at the end of the school day. *clap clap clap* (I wonder if that’s how Japan’s politicians normally do business, but I digress)

00000023Catfight!!! Catfight!!! The fans and shippers demand it!

Kourin isn’t making things any easier by threatening to leave the cardfight club out of her jealousy (or is it?) of Misaki, and Misaki is acting all confused¬†about her reasons for wanting to join the club. I was actually expecting Kourin and Misaki to go head-to-head since they’ve been getting on each other’s nerves since the episode began, instead of Aichi having to fight Misaki. Catfight, please! The fans demand it. But hey, Misaki won the cardfight and the club got its fifth member, so all’s well that ends well.

00000046Could have sworn these units were Oracle Think Tank, but no, they’re Genesis

About the Genesis clan, it aesthetically looks and feels like the Oracle Think Tank clan, but the soul-charging mechanics remind me of Pale Moon and Dark Irregulars. However, where the latter two clans soulcharge to strengthen their unit columns (Dark Irregulars)¬†or provide additional attacks (Pale Moon), Genesis units soulcharge cards to soulblast them later as costs for skills. Definitely interesting. I’ll be keeping an eye out for this clan.

P.S. Looks like Suzugamori Ren’s advice to Misaki on trying out new clans and cards have borne fruit. I wonder when Ren and the rest of Team New AL4 will appear.
