High Card Season 2: Renewed or Cancelled? + Release Date Predictions

High Card Season 2, when will it release?

Animes centered around cards have been a dying sub-genre since the likes of Yu Gi Oh and Duel Masters became incredibly popular.

Players battling each other with magical creatures inscribed in cards that can be unleashed through a set of rules build up an exciting watch, but the quantity of such series has decreased over time.

Nowadays, real-life card games such as Poker are often used as themes, and winter 2023 was privy to one such series by Studio Hibari titled High Card.

The premise is set in the royal family of the Fourland Kingdom, who owns a private deck of 52 “X-Playing cards” wherein each card holds a secret power that can be bestowed on whosoever uses it.

The aforementioned cards facilitate the user to unlock the latent abilities of their inner “buddy”.

In the kingdom of Fourland, there exists an elusive group of individuals who go by the name High Card. They have been tasked by the highest order of authority, to locate and gather the scattered cards throughout the kingdom.

Due to financial stress, the orphanage is on the verge of closing down, and it’s up to Finn to raise funds which leads him to a casino.
