Yu-yu is a boy living in Kanazawa, Kaga Province.
He is 15 years old and in his third year of junior high school.
He has the ability to sense the feelings of others, but he is troubled by the fact that he cannot say no when asked.

One day, Yu-yu could no longer stand going along with his sister’s hobby, so he ran away from home.
The one who saves him is Megumi Okura.
Megumi invites Yu-yu to a nighttime amusement park called “Wonder Hill” where her friends hang out.

At the amusement park, Yu-yu meets Megumi, Zakusa Ishikame, and Tomari Seto, members of “Team Blackout,” a group that meets to play Vanguard every night.

Tonight, a serious fight for the team’s flag will take place.
Blackout’s leader, Danji Momoyama, and the mysterious and powerful fighter, Tohya Ebata.
As Yu-yu stares at them, the card fight is soon eroded into a world of images.

This is how Yu-yu encounters Vanguard, a world he has never seen before, and is drawn in by its powerful allure- making new friends along the way.

Yu-yu Kondo loses to Tohya Ebata, and the banner that symbolizes Team Blackout goes up in ashes.

And while Yu-yu and his friends are still stunned by this turn of events, their leader Danji Momoyama returns and challenges Tohya to a Vanguard fight, a fight that ends in a clear victory for Danji.

As the group starts to shower Tohya with a deluge of jeers, Danji announces his departure from the team, and follows it up with appointing Tohya as the next leader, leaving the team members in shock.

Meanwhile, Masanori and Shinobu continue their banner hunt under the name of Team Daybreak, under the command of Haruka Sokawa.

And there is also the mysterious girl, Mirei Minae.

What awaits Yu-yu and his friends?

Yu-yu, Raika, and Touya were invited to America after their win in the “Deluxe” tournament in Japan, and went on a tour of exhibition matches.

It was one blazing fight after another as their opponents were all top ranking fighters from Deluxe USA. Danji, who had arrived earlier in America to look into the background of the Deluxe tournament at Michiru’s behest, begins to suspect a connection with the case of the missing fighters. Meanwhile, a new force emerges in Japan, with their ideal of achieving the “Ultimate Fight” in cardfights.

What is their goal of recruiting more and more fighters? This will eventually come to cast a shadow upon the future of Yu-yu and the rest of Blackout…
