Kaijudo: Rise of the Duel Masters gathering event for fans and players


Earlier this summer a new cartoon and trading card game was released under the title Kaijudo: Rise of the Duel Masters, the animated series currently runs of The Hub every Saturday. Kaijudo isn’t only an anime but also a trading card game brought to you by Wizards of the Coast featuring creatures from the Animated Series.

If you haven’t watched the series it follows Raiden Pierce-Okamoto, aka Ray, a talented 14-year-old boy, and the two worlds in which he lives. One is the real world much like our own, and the other is a fantastical world of creatures, a parallel world made up of five civilizations, visible only to a chosen few, together with his friends and the creatures from the parallel world they fight together to protect the balance. The animated series also features some impressive voice actors such as Scott Wolf, John DiMaggio, Dee Bradley Baker and two were on hand for a small Kaijudo gathering event: David Sobolov who voices Ray’s partner Tatsurion the Unchained, and Andrew Kishino who voices Ray’s Grandfather Okamoto.

A special event was held in Torrance California, and the room was full of fans of the show David and Andrew welcomed the fans talking about their roles in the cartoon and even did a bit of voice acting for us, a new episode was shown giving fans of the series the chance to see the next episode for everyone else and give parents and those new to the series a chance to watch. I haven’t watched the series before since I don’t have The Hub channel, but the episode had some amazing visuals and character design but if you have the channel its not a bad watch especially for kids since right after the episode was over there were tons of cheers all around.

After the room cleared out both Andrew Kishino and David Sobolov spent some time with the fans by taking pictures, signing posters and chatting. Everyone who attended also received a booster pack of the Kaijudo card game, I’ve only been playing the game for a few weeks as I started getting my friends interested about learning the game, if you want more info you can check out the Kaijudo website.
