Anime series notes[edit]

  • In episode 4, characters from Cardfight!! Vanguard make special cameo appearances such as Aichi Sendou, Kamui Katsuragi, Ren Suzugamori, Toshiki Kai and Tetsu Shinjo.[7] Misaki Tokura (who is voiced by Izumi Kitta in Japanese and Carol-Anne Day in English (both of whom also voice roles in the Japanese and English versions of Buddyfight) is the only one who has a spoken line.

List of Episodes[edit]

As with their first series, Cardfight!! Vanguard, Bushiroad is airing the series in English on YouTube and Hulu. As of episode 17 the dub is also airing on Crunchyroll. Crunchyroll serves as the home of the subbed Cardfight!! Vanguard, but Future Card Buddyfight is only the third dubbed series to air on Crunchyroll to have episodes remain on Crunchyroll, behind Rurouni Kenshin and Valerian and Laureline, though Gundam 00 and Code Geass have had their dub on Crunchyroll for a limited time. The English airings are delayed from the Japanese airings by a few hours and are considered a same day simulcast, but due to the time difference between Japan and the States, the English airdate ends up being a day ahead of the Japanese airing. The English dub for Hundred went on a hiatus on October 2, 2015.
