HATE FUN 2002! Aquarian Age

Couldn’t find the OP so that’s a trailer instead.

Another trading card game gets animated (see Mon Colle Knights), by the sounds of things this draws on the world of the cards, rather than make an anime about people playing the card game. Because it’s SERIOUS FANTASY and therefore doesn’t want to roll around in bed full of children’s pocket money.

Not sure why it got released in English given that the card game wasn’t out in the US. Is it that good a show that it was worth putting out without context?
