Devour! Until you seize the world you are seeking!

—Kazuma Shouji, When he strides Dragdriver, Luard.

Kazuma Shouji is one of the main character in Cardfight!! Vanguard G: NEXT anime. He becomes a member of Chrono's new team Team Striders alongside Taiyou Asukawa. Kazuma's Vanguard circle is blue.

Appearance

He has gray eyes and dark teal hair with a white streak. His casual clothes consist of a blue jacket and a collared, white shirt. His school uniform consist of blue suit, black trousers and white shirt. Unlike most of the boys in the school, Kazuma doesn't wear a tie and keeps his collar button opened.

Personality

Kazuma is a passionate fighter with a no-nonsense attitude. He berated Chrono for going through the motions and explaining Vanguard's lore because he had heard it before and was disappointed when Chrono refused to explain what Stride and Generation Guarding are until the time came. Kazuma is the type of person who gives up at the first sign of a losing battle, as shown in his fight with Chrono where he abruptly quit, knowing he would've had enough shield to guard if Chrono didn't draw a trigger. His next damage check would've been a heal trigger, as shown when Chrono looked at the top card of Kazuma's deck after he quit. This, however, prompted Kazuma to act possessive, yelling at Chrono for touching his deck. He then regained his composure and left the shop.

Biography

Kazuma was first seen walking in the school corridor and one of his classmate invited him to join the soccer team but he refused. He is a first year high school student from Tokyo Metropolitan Harumi High School. Though he always takes a frivolous and motiveless attitude, he hides a searing heart. Despite being a novice in cardfighting, it seems that he has a connection to Vanguard from when he was a kid.

Deck

Kazuma uses a Shadow Paladin deck with Dragheart, Luard as his ace. His deck is well balanced, focusing on aggressively calling and attacking while retiring both his own and his opponent's rear-guards. It also focuses on the new Shadow Paladin keyword, Ritual, in order to activate a variety of effects based on the amount of Grade 1 units in his Drop Zone, which he can quickly fill by retiring his own rearguards. Luard's second skill allows him to Stride even if he can't pay the cost while refilling his deck with more Grade 1 cards to call. He adds a new card, Draganger, Ogma to help decrease both the opponents formation and their hand.
