Mix Master (hangul: 카드왕 믹스마스터, Kadeu Wang Mikseu Maseuteo) is a Korea - Japan co-produced anime series based on the MMORPG, also known by the name Mix Master King of Cards. It is a co-production by Nippon Animation of Japan and Sunwoo Entertainment and KBS of Korea. The series aired on Cartoon Network in many Asian areas from Southeast Asia to South Korea and all of Asia between. The story centers on the fantasy and adventure card game, Mix Master. This anime series has many bearing similar to Yu-Gi-Oh and Duel Masters.

Story[edit]

The series takes place in the town of Gamebridge where, through the accidental opening of a portal from the fictional Mix Master video game world of Atreia, the peaceful little town is invaded by the funny and sometimes dangerous game creatures, known as "hench", as well as the game world's evil Prince Brad. The main protagonist, 11-year-old Ditt Lee, is given a card mixer by the eccentric Dr. Joeb, and now must "mix" those hench (as learned from the fictional video game) to achieve peace and safety throughout the series, while he grows into his destiny to become the one true "Mix Master".

Main characters[edit]

Name Description
Ditt Lee Ditt is the main character, a lazy 11-year-old who likes nothing more than sleeping and eating (his favorite food being donuts). However, he is a kind and courageous person with a noble and honest heart, and a good friend. When Gamebridge and Atreia are mixed for the first time, Dr. Joeb's plunger device detects that he is the most fitting person to wield the gun-like card mixer, which makes him the first real-life Mixer. He constantly bickers with Pachi, who lives in the same house with him, but they are very close friends. As time goes by, Ditt grows from a lazy boy to a true hero, and in the end, it is revealed that he is the true Mix Master, as several characters suspect from the beginning.
Pachi Pachi is a hench from Atreia. He is cheeky, sarcastic and doesn't trust easily, and will make jokes at Ditt's expense whenever possible. However, he likes Ditt a lot and comes to think of him as his best friend. Pachi is actually the legendary Master Hench, but rejects this duty and doesn't show his true strength because his elder brother, the former Master Hench, died in the final confrontation against the Wraith of the Lost World.
Penril Penril is Ditt's classmate and friend, and the only girl in the Mixer team. She is kind and has a strong will, but is short-fused and rather over-sensitive. She is physically strong, as she trains at taekwondo at her father's dojo. She is the second to receive a heart-shaped card mixer, which works like a bow and arrow contraption. It appears that she is bossing Ditt around and mothering him, but deep down, she really cares about Ditt.
Cheek Cheek is Ditt's classmate and friend, and an expert at the Mix Master game. Cheek is very intelligent, helpful and modest, and he is the team's best consultant in strategies for combining henches. Before Dr. Joeb's plunger device picks Ditt to be the Mix Master, he wants Cheek to wield the card mixer due to his expertise. He eventually gets a card mixer of his own, shaped like a taser.
Jin Jin is Ditt's classmate and rival, but he doesn't befriend the rest of the Mixers until later. He is considered the lone wolf of the gang as Jin initially distrusts the henches, but later comes to trust them and the Mixer team, receiving his own gun-shaped card mixer. He constantly states his disbelief at Ditt being the true Mix Master. He is the son of Gamebridge Town's overzealous mayor, and is always quite embarrassed by his father's actions.
Poy Poy is a young elf from Atreia, who was sent by her mother to find the true Mix Master. She always wants to help others and is very sweet. She is very knowledgeable when it comes to Mix Master lore, and believes she found the true Mix Master in Ditt, becoming his most staunch supporter.
Dr. Joeb In his 63 years of life, the kooky Dr. Joeb came up with many bizarre inventions. He is partially responsible for the mixing of Gamebridge and Atreia, opening a portal in Gamebridge the same time Prince Brad opened a portal in Atreia. Despite all his eccentricities, he is very helpful to Ditt and his friends, providing them with mixing gear and gadgets.

Villains[edit]

Name Description
Prince Brad Prince Brad is a vain, egocentric dark elf who opened the portal to Gamebridge from Atreia in search of the Master Hench. He believes himself to be the true Mix Master, and wants to be the ruler of everything everywhere. He does not think highly of humans, especially Ditt and his friends. He is the boss of three bumbling dark elves that he often sends out to wreak havoc in Gamebridge.
Mino Mino is one of Prince Brad's henchmen, a large, burly dark elf with a nose ring. He values power and strength, and doesn't think much of those smaller than he is. Deep down, however, he appreciates the softer, more delicate things in life. He is not terribly bright, and often misunderstands things. His card mixer is a large war hammer. He is the enemy of penril
Jamine Jamine is one of Prince Brad's henchmen, and the only female. She is obsessed with beauty, thinking she is the fairest of them all. She has a huge crush on Prince Brad, and often makes futile attempts to try to get the self-involved dark elf's attention. Her card mixer is a cosmetics compact.
Chino Chino is one of Prince Brad's henchmen, a small and skinny punkster who is rarely seen without his electric guitar. He is loud, energetic and arrogant, and truly believes he is the best of the three henchmen. He loves music and writes songs whenever he possibly can, and doesn't realize that he's terrible at it. His card mixer is his guitar.
Giara Giara is a self-proclaimed white witch who offers her help to Prince Brad. She seems very loyal to Prince Brad and acts in a rather sycophantic manner when he is around, and is actually much crueler than Brad is. In the end she betrays Prince Brad and reveals her true nature; she is, in essence, the Wraith of the Lost World that was sealed away by Pachi's older brother years ago, and is only interested in the destruction of Earth and Atreia.

Hench[edit]

There are over two hundred henches from different species. They can be fused or 'mixed' together to form a new, stronger hench. Henches are ranked from 1 to 7 depending on their power, with 1 being the lowest and 7 the highest. There are also species such as animal and plant. To be mixed, henches have to be of the same rank and species.

Henches are shown to be very like humans, as they can sleep, eat, talk, and they also tire out if they are used to much. They are known to bond with humans if they show honesty and friendship. They have to obey the orders of the person who owns their card shuffler, even against their will. They also seem to grow old and die.

The Master Hench[edit]

Although henches are ranked till 7, above level 7 there is one hench that is known as the Ultimate Hench and is the most powerful hench. Ultimate Hench comes to existence when all the 7 Henches of Rank 7 are fused together with the help of the Mix Master and The Master Hench. According to legend, the Master Hench has to find one human friend which it trusts above all else, and that human will become the Mix Master. It appears that the Master Henches are usually somehow related, as Pachi's brother was the previous Master Hench. The Master Hench can be mixed to become the ultimate hench that can defeat Giara.
