Katsumi Morikawa, Episode 112

Katsumi Morikawa is a minor character in Cardfight!! Vanguard anime and manga. Despite katsu meaning "victory", he's one of the weakest players in the anime (mostly due to the fact that he uses a deck with too many grade 3s).

He is very boastful and proud of his "strength," even though he has lost almost every Vanguard fight he has had, giving him the nickname "lose-umi" (often just called "loser" in the dub). He is very superstitious and regularly consults an astrology book. He also has a huge obsession with Ultra-rare member Kourin and is often "fanboying" over her when he knows she's set to appear somewhere. For example, in episode 26, he implies he might have come to the nationals just to see Kourin instead of the actual fighting.

Biography

Anime Biography

Morikawa is the self-professed strongest fighter in Card Capital. He starts the series off by stealing Aichi's Blaster Blade and betting it in a fight with Kai, attempting to use the rare card to beat him. While Morikawa is initially just a bully, he eventually lightens up and becomes Aichi's friend. His favorite card is Juggernaut Maximum, but his deck has no set clan, as Morikawa attempts to stuff as many grade 3 cards into it as possible. Naturally, this causes him massive problems in successfully riding from one grade to the next, using his cards' skills, and activating triggers. Whenever he loses, he blames it on bad luck rather than poor deck-building choices. However, it's shown in rides 51 and 52 that he actually is a good fighter, but only when using a deck that is good by itself.

Manga Biography

Initially Morikawa steals Aichi's Blaster Blade as in the anime. As it happens, he's a member of Hitsue Junior High's CF Vanguard Research Club, sponsored by Mr. Mark. Unlike in the anime, Morikawa does not run a grade 3-centered deck, but instead uses a more traditional (and useful) Spike Brothers one (although during his first appearance, he does use Savage King which is a Tachikaze unit).

Season 2

Morikawa stayed behind at Card Capital while Team Q4 went to the VF Circuit.

Season 3

Morikawa and Izaki graduated from Hitsue Junior High School and became students at Kai and Miwa's school, Hitsue High. Morikawa became very jealous of Aichi when Kourin moved into Aichi's class. Morikawa then decided to go to Hitsue High, but Aichi said that you're not allowed unless you're a student or a parent. Then Morikawa tried to declare himself the "father" of Aichi Sendou, but Kamui stopped him.

Deck

Main Deck

Morikawa's main deck is a Kagerō deck, with a random assortment of Grade 3s. It has more Grade 3s than any other grade, leaving him constantly with hands full of Grade 3s and nothing else to Ride.

It is shown he is actually an incredibly strong fighter when using a balanced deck, as shown in Ride 51 when he went to a shop tournament but forgot his deck. He was given a Golden Mechanical Soldier deck, and won every fight he had in the episode.

Constructed Deck

In Episode 112, Kai lends his Kagero deck to Morikawa, hoping to see how his strength compares to Aichi's through Morikawa, based on his old deck centered around his ace, Dragonic Overlord the End. This deck now uses the Break Ride unit Dauntless Drive Dragon as an alternative vanguard to ride the End on, granting it high power as well as the ability to re-stand if its attack fails to hit. This forces the opponent into a no-win situation; if they guard, it re-stands through Dauntless's skill, and if they don't, the End re-stands by its own skill instead, basically ensuring two attacks at least on that turn.

  • It has been shown that Morikawa is actually a stong cardfighter when using a balanced deck, this is shown in Episode 51 and 52 where he used a trial deck given to him by Shin and achieved many victories, even against Aichi. Kai noted this as well and in episode 112 lent Morikawa his deck to battle Aichi, he gave Aichi a hard time, even close in defeating him, but in the end Aichi won.
