In a previous news story, Takei commented that he has drawn some card artwork for the new series, Cardfight!! Vanguard. Shown on the left is the card that Takei drew. This creature has been featured in the Anime series (which can be seen on Crunchyroll), though doesn’t follow Takei’s exact design. More information about the card (in Japanese) can be found on the official website.
