Studio 1/4 is an upcoming online trading card game featuring decks from a number of anime series and characters. Unlike most TCGs however, 1/4 will run on a quarterly system, similarly to the seasonal airing of different anime series. This means that decks will circulate in and out of the TCG’s randomizer on a “seasonal” time frame (one season = one month), and traders will have to work hard to master their favorite series before the season is over, or wait until their favorite series "airs" again another season! Check out some of the information below to see some examples of how the TCG will run.

take up the seasonal challenge!

Can you master your favorite series in one season? Decks on 1/4 will be available for a limited time throughout the game, meaning your favorite decks may not always be in circulation via the randomizer. Take up a new, fun challenge via Studio 1/4's season system!

Every month, 20 series decks will "premiere" on one of our channels. These decks will be brought into circulation via the game randomizers and TCG prizes. After the season is up, the decks will discontinue circulation temporarily and a new 20 will be rotated in--the only way you'll be able to earn cards from decks which aren't airing is through other traders, special TCG coupons and instances where the deck is re-run during a season once again. Additionally, each series will be assigned a random time slot on their respective channel. Series which fall under Golden Time will have various special effects on the game--decks mastered while they're in the Golden Time Slot will earn bigger rewards and may even unlock some special decks or features!

This system (as far as we know) is quite unique to TCGs, so we'll most likely be running the game in beta before officially opening, to test out any possible kinks. We'll continue to release information on how the game will work as we develop it, so please continue to check back!

complete your favorite series

Series Decks are the main deck of Studio 1/4 and feature 25 cards per set. Decks will be rotated in and out of the randomizer randomly. Can you collect all 25 within one season or will you need to wait until the series is re-run?





unlock bonus character decks

Character Decks are a special type of deck in Studio 1/4, featuring characters which will be rotated into the randomizer whenever their series is airing. Cards will be more difficult to earn, and character decks must be "unlocked" by traders via mastering and games in the TCG! Work together with fellow traders to unlock your favorite characters' decks!
