Kids fight and make friends with their Pokemon cards.
This involved a card game, so I should have known it would suck. However, the first episode started off with a battle involving a loli riding a fire-breathing mecha T-Rex. How could I not continue watching?!!
Sadly, it all went downhill quickly from there. It had too many characters, who always ended up fighting each other briefly and then joining forces, as always tends to happen in these shows. Each had some sort of brief personal struggle to overcome. Then the final boss is some alien who no one can communicate. Never the strongest villain. And it ends up being a 20 vs. 1 final battle, in which each character gets their moment of “cool” which is actually pretty lame to anyone who has hit puberty. All to save the lead female who is tied up in the cruciform position with her clothes dissolving. Oh sorry for spoiling. Haha like anyone would care.
- Storytelling – F – Pointless.
- Voice – F – Unoriginal.
- Characters – F – Too many, didn’t care.
- Attention Grab – F – After the T-Rex, knocked me right out.
- Production – C – Meh.
- Overall – F
Recommendations – The top MAL recommendation for this is Devil Survivor 2. For once I think the MAL users are right. That should give you an idea of how awful this is.

I fell to this trap too, but interest waned as the show imploded — knowing it’d suck as a card game.
Yeah, it’s such a great trap, it’s hard not to fall for it. I still don’t entirely regret it.
Most video games adaptations suck.
But it is one of the worst.
BTW, I think most of MAL’s recommendations are correct.
The scores are the incorrect ones.
Yep, their recommendations are usually reasonable. The ones with a fair number of votes anyway.
Devil Survivor is way worse than ZX Ignition actually.
