Twelve-year-old Shobu Kirifuda has one goal: to become a top-ranking player at the game of Duel Masters, a card game in which players use spells and summon monsters to break through their opponents' shield cards and subsequently defeat them. Shobu believes he's a great player, but he soon discovers that there is more to the game than he originally thought; true Duel Masters, he learns, are able to make the monsters on the cards manifest themselves during a duel. A mysterious group has taken a keen interest in Shobu, although their reasons are as mysterious as the group itself. Now Shobu and his friends not only have to win the championship, but also try to figure out who these people are and why they're so interested in Shobu.
