CEO’s Message

TCG (Trading Card Game) has no borders!

“To be the No. 1 TCG company in the world!”

We would like to express our gratitude to all the people who love Bushiroad card games and Bushimo titles.

Since the establishment of Bushiroad in 2007, we have received a lot of support from you. We exert every effort to increase the popularity of face-to-face trading card games (TCG). Weiß Schwarz, the first TCG from our company, includes popular anime and game titles. As a character TCG, players can choose their favorite titles to enjoy it. This game has attracted a large number of players. In 2011, Cardfight!! Vanguard has become one of the most important products of our company. It is a TCG that is easy to learn and enjoy, and has numerous players all over the world. With the distribution of both Japanese and English editions, its popularity is no longer limited within Asia. Cardfight!! Vanguard has also reached the European and American regions. It is undoubtedly a world class game which has fascinated a lot of players. In order to expand our international business, we have set up local offices in Singapore and the U.S.A. in 2010 and 2012 respectively. At present, we are focusing on popularizing TCG in Japan, Asia-Oceania and North America.

As a group corporation, we have Hibiki Music for for talent management and audio services such as Internet radio and music CD production, Bushiroad Media for media management and related businesses, and New Japan Pro-Wrestling for professional wrestling business. We are able to provide entertainment contents for professional wrestling in Japan with different approaches, such as audio and video. We have also developed Milky Holmes, which is a unit group from Hibiki Music, as well as TCG featuring popular wrestlers from New Japan Pro-Wrestling. With these approaches, people who are not familiar with TCGs are able to enjoy TCGs as well.

At the end of 2012, we started Bushimo, a smartphone game platform. Since then we have received great response for game titles such as Renai Replay, Kindan Shoukan! Summon Master and Bound Monsters. We would like to provide an environment where players can enjoy TCGs at any time and place in the form of social games, which are different from face-to-face TCGs.

We aim to be the No.1 TCG company in the world and we will continue taking up challenges. We look forward to your continuous support and guidance in the future.
