Wild Cardz, known in Japan as Jaja-uma Quartet (じゃじゃ馬カルテット?), is a two-episode Japanese direct-to-video anime created by Yasuchika Nagaoka (director of New Cutie Honey). It was released in Japan by Studio OX, MOVIC and BMG Japan. It has been released in North America by U.S. Manga Corps.
The Card Kingdom is a prominent land that is taken over by invaders and it's up to the Crown Knights to push back the invaders and protect their land with all their might.
This anime has very little fan service compared to the director's previous works and instead of the cute magical girl genre, the focus is more action-oriented with styles similar to a Shōnen series. Some of the characters and enemies are named after game pieces and cards to coincide with the theme.
