Fateful Encounter (運命の出会い) is the 23rd episode of Cardfight!! Vanguard: Season 1 in the Cardfight!! Vanguard Anime.


Aichi, Kamui and Misaki visit Card Shop PSY after Suiko's invitation. They meet an aloof red-haired stranger with a peculiar attitude. However, once the Ultra Rare group arrives, they learn that he is none other than Suzugamori Ren, the winner of the previous national tournament! Kourin and Ren engage in a cardfight and Aichi, who had been beaten by Kourin before, watches in amazement as Ren easily controls the match. Strangely using the same speech patterns that Kai does during his matches, Ren uses a seemingly simple Grade 1 card called Blazer Idols to finish the game. However, what are these visions that Aichi has of the planet Cray, when Ren is about to make his move...?
