Weiss Schwarz anime: Weiss Survive


Not really surprised that there is no thread for this yet, as it's a pretty low-key anime.

Anyway, Weiss Survive is an anime that, so far, seems to be a marketing/tutorial for the Weiss Schwarz card game (also known as 'weib schwarz'). Now before you run away, the Weiss Schwarz card game isn't just any card game, no, it features decks build around existing anime.

Yup, Fate/Stay Night decks, Nanoha decks, Persona decks, even Lucky Star decks. There's a whole list of them. Most of them are Japanese, unfortunately, but it seems that with the rise of the Disgaea deck, there might be more English cards coming. I pray this to be the case.

This site is a great English source of information for the game. It also has translations for some of the cards.

Anyway, back to the anime, it's a short one. Barely two-and-a-half minutes per episode of wacky comedy. Still, it brought a grin to my lips. Takeshi and Michi get sucked into an alternate dimension where Takeshi is declared the 'chosen warrior' by a strange old man, and has to play the card games to get out.

Don't really have anything to say, but this is probably the letter you're looking for:

Yeah, that's what it should be, but the Japanese use the β.

Give them some credit:



Make it "ss", it's a perfectly acceptable replacement for ASCII-only environments.

Good idea (I went with β because β seems to trigger the search and displays the game's homepage on google, whereas ▀ doesn't). Can't do anything about the title though...

Very low-key, already a sequel.
New picture, but very NSFW.

Wished it was longer. The characters seem interesting and funny.

This is a surprisingly hillarious short anime. My only nitpick would be that the anime designs of the main guy & girl do not do Takuya Fujima's designs justice at all.

Better quality version (and that should have an NSFW spoiler tag ):

Spoiler for NSFW:


Some other lower quality scans from the first series:

And yeah this was actually pretty good. From the beginning it's main point is to rally attention to the game with fanservice and humor, and it accomplishes that rather well.
