"Cardfight!! Vanguard: Shinemon" is the third series of the Cardfight!! Vanguard anime, and is a reboot story roughly based on the Cardfight!! Vanguard manga by Akira Ito. The "Shinemon Arc" is an anime-exclusive storyline based around the events ten years prior to the whole storyline, as well Card Capital's beginnings. Despite the arc being anime-exclusive, it is considered to be the fourth arc of the Cardfight!! Vanguard (V Series Anime), and not a new season.

The episodes are first broadcast on TV Tokyo at 8.00am JST Saturday and made available on the website AbemaTV at 9.00pm JST on the same night. The episodes are also uploaded with English subtitles through the official YouTube channel and Crunchyroll.
