High Card Anime Episode Guide: Release Dates & Timings

High Card is the perfect anime for those who love anime series like Bungou Stray Dogs, Baccano, or Karneval. But if you prefer watching something other than Mafia/Government-related content and a fast-paced action story, High Card anime might not be your cup of tea.

High Card dropped on the internet with a bang and is getting popular among teenagers and adults alike. As of 1st March 2023, it has a 7.27 rating in MAL, which is above the average anime shows with a rating of 6. High Card is a spy-like Japanese multimedia franchise created by Homura Kawamoto, Hikaru Muno, and TMS Entertainment. High Card consists of manga series, novel series, drama CDs, plus an anime adaptation TV series by Studio Hibari.

The first episode premiered in January 2023, creating a buzz on the internet with its poker-like theme. While previewing the anime series at Anime NYC in November 2022, Kawamoto and Muno admitted that the Kingsman movies inspired the High Card. Kingsman is a British movie filled with action and comedy; we recommend you check it out if you are a fan of spy movies.

They also revealed that the reason behind setting up a fictional kingdom outside of Japan was to make it appealing to audiences around the world. We do not blame you for getting hooked to the screen after watching a few episodes. All the release dates and timings of High Card episodes are below.

High Card Short Review

I watched most of the episodes of High Card, and it has a lot of potentials to shine. The premise is fun, and the system is not complex like other spy anime. The animation is great, considering a small studio created it.

You will experience emotional beats in the spy flick of different characters. After episode 5, everything turns dark and grim; if you are unprepared to watch some blood and gore scenes, this might not be for you.


The focus is on moving the plot forward, so the past incidents will not be as much detailed as one would expect them to be. The ratings and reviews may change depending on how the upcoming episodes turn out.
