Edit: Updated! Again!

My thoughts about this are some excitement and some concerns. I shall go in order as to not jumble everything together...

1. Yay! New season with new characters, pretty cool, I mean you have to admit, everyone was getting a bit older, probably too older for Bushiroads targeted age group. Misaki was about to graduate and Aichi and Kai weren't far behind, etc etc. New blood is sometimes needed.

2. Shino, oh a cute yet seriously looking 'knight' boy with a paige-boy haircut, kinda cool. Tokohara, omg yes! Finally a female NN user who is also a main character, this is gonna be awesome! Chrono, um.. I dunno that reminds me a bit 'too' much of yugioh and your name... just.. really? Chrono, that name along with the hair just seems like the biggest attention grabber... which makes him by relation a bit of an attention whore? lol

3. I really hope that Toko isn't going to be a Tea (from yugioh) clone, talks about friendship and being nothing more than an over glorified cheerleader. Or at least I don't want her to be annoying and/or overly girly. I'm not asking for butch, but something more along the lines of Kourin and Misaki, girls who didn't let their gender define their personalities.

4. New director AND writer? Oh boy. Did some digging and found that they worked on a few episodes including the intro to Ren and at least the Tsuku fight(s) with Misaki vs Asaka. Those were some good episodes, hopefully they don't muck anything up and get this anime some much needed 'awesome'.

5. OTT support and two things of NN support? Oh lord, this is gonna be awesome *crosses fingers*

6. Shadow Paladins huh? Here's hoping there's more witches on the way! (and maybe even a reappearance of Rati?)

Thoroughly disgusted with the people judging the G reboot before any real in-depth info about the new characters or elements have been laid out (save Stride). A restart over the mess that was Legion Mate arc and the current meta era is an amazing idea, despite all of those cards still being around/legal for G era. Bushi has a chance to bring up clans that need upbringing along with solving annoying problems they're already working on like Gradelocks. Unfortunately, they can't let go of Kagero, Shadows, or Jokers so the meta is going to be more or less the same unless Bushi actually puts some balanced thought into their designs.

The news of the director/writer who did some of the best episodes in Season 1 along with Oracles returning gives me more hope though. The anime can stop being a mess of awful advertisement and forgotten clans may finally stop being shafted like Oracles and Nectars.

Toward the end, I too felt like I was watching, at times, more like a very intricate commercial than I was a series. I mean I know, these shows are basically commercials anyways, trying to sell their stuff to the viewers at home, but it never felt so blatant before this season.

The only thing I'm judging, is the character's looks xD, that's all we have to go on so that's all I'm going on, that and of course my hopes/worries about the show, but that's just all they are, hopes and worries, nothing fact based. I mean, I honestly hope the show does a great job and is not only fun but interesting as well, the only worrying I have is the MC reminding me a weeeeee bit too much of yugioh which then cascades into other worrying based on those past experiences.

For the first season? I hope they concentrate on some 'normal' stuff, getting into local tournaments, trying to climb the ladder into card fighting stardom, that kind of thing, this whole 'saving the world' stuff has been done to death. I mean we were entertained by the fact that Aichi was trying to become a better player and the up's and down's he had along that journey. I never really remember anyone 'craving' him to...literally shoot off into space and fight aliens lol.
