Future Card Buddyfight TV Animation Synopsis:

In 2030, through “Buddyfight”, humans have started cultural interactions with residents from a parallel universe. Buddyfight is a game with selected humans as the “Buddyfighter”, and residents from the other world as the partner (known as “Buddy Monster”). These battles have high significance and sometimes it is even used to decide the fate of a nation, and naturally there are those who seek to use the Buddy Monsters for evil purposes.

One fine day, Gao Mikado, a 6th year elementary student at Aibo Academy, rescues a boy from some hooligans out of kindness, and this act catches the attention of a monster, “Drum Bunker Dragon” from the Dragon World. Drum takes a liking to the unconventional Gao, and forms a pact with him as a buddy. This is the story of their journey, and the deep bonds they forge with each other, as well as the various friends they meet along the way!
