"Taishi Miwa" is a minor character, and later one of the protagonists in Cardfight!! Vanguard anime and manga.

Overview

He is a friend of Toshiki Kai, they have been friends since they were young and he is Kai's only friend. He understands Kai and plays Cardfight with him. Unlike Kai, he's nicer, friendly and loves to joke. He also goes to the same school as Kai.

Name

Like Kai, despite continuous reference to 'Miwa' both in-series and out even by friends, Miwa's given name is in fact Taishi.

Season 2

Miwa will be left in Japan and will be looking after Card Capital with Izaki as the Acting Shop Owner, during the Tournament Period.


Season 3

Miwa is now a senior with Kai. During his fight against Shingo, Shingo underestimated Miwa's skill and Miwa manages to wipe him out easily.

He later faces off against Misaki during the regional qualifiers,showing off the new Seal Dragons, but falls short of defeating her.

When Kai returned to Japan after travelling around the world following his Reverse, Miwa confronts him, having learnt of cardfighters suddenly becoming strong and gathering more into their group worldwide from the net. He was also able to deduce that Kai was the cause of starting the chain of the growing Reversed players, despite hoping that he was wrong. Saddened that he was right after all, he challenged Kai, using his old Kagero deck with Dragonic Overlord the End, only to lose to Kai's new ace card, Star-vader, Chaos Breaker Dragon. He subsequently gets Reversed as well.

After getting Reversed, he plays the role of being Kai's right hand, going off to defeat the underground fighters and even Jun so that they would not interfere with Kai's desire to fight Aichi.

He is seen with Kai at Tatsanagi Industries welcoming Aichi, Misaki, Naoki, Kamui, and Shingo. He challenges Aichi to a cardfight, saying he wants to test him, but ends up fighting Misaki. He manages to get the upper hand with Dauntless Dominate Dragon Reverse but ends up losing to Misaki's new ace card, Omniscience Regalia, Minerva. After being defeated, he reverts to normal but feels sorry for Kai for being alone again.

Season 4

When Aichi disappeared, Miwa also have lost his memories of him. At school, Miwa was seen with Kai in their own vanguard club, where Kai challenges him to a match. During the fight, Miwa struggles to remember the person that Kai keeps on mentioning, but to no avail. As the match reaches to its climax, Kai rides Seeker, Sing Saver Dragon and continues to attack, but Miwa successfully guards all three barrages. Realizing that he must use his own power to recall the person that he forgot, he break rides Dragonic Overlord and attacks with full power. However, Kai manages to guard all those assaults, leaving Miwa close to giving up remembering the blurry images looming around his head. Then during Kai's turn, he activates legion, calling Blaster Blade Seeker to the vanguard circle alongside with Sing Saver Dragon, triggering Miwa's memories of Aichi and thus beating him. 

After the match, Miwa learns of a butler that has some sort of a connection to Aichi. 

Deck

Miwa uses a Kagerō deck similar to Kai's. Yet, he only had 2 on-screen battles against Aichi Sendou in Episode 38 and against Katsumi Morikawa in episode 51 and lost.

In Season 2, Miwa uses a Narukami deck since the Kagerō clan is sealed.

In Season 3, Miwa returns to using the Kagerō clan adding Dragonic Lawkeeper to his arsenal. Later, he changes his deck to revolve around the Seal Dragons.

Season 1

Deck


Season 3

Season 3, he changes his deck around the Seal Dragons series.

Deck


When facing off against Reversed Kai, he uses Kai's old Kagero deck utilizing the Break Ride, Dauntless Drive Dragon in conjunction with Dragonic Overlord the End, using their re-stand skills in order to put extreme pressure on his opponents.

Deck


Upon becoming Reversed, he swaps out Dragonic Overlord the End for Dauntless Dominate Dragon "Reverse". The Crossbreak Ride retires Grade 1 or lower units for every Grade 1 or higher unit drive checked as well as adds 10000 power to its attack. Along with Dauntless Drive Dragon's Break Ride skill to re-stand, the attacks will be retiring up to 4 Grade 1 or lower units as well as a minimum of 12000 additional power by the end of the turn.
