Goggleboy Downtown Tokyo

Aah. Downtown Tokyo. Home to swarming decks everywhere. DT gives both players the opportunity to play up to 3 characters per turn. At the beginning of the game, this gives no really advantage to either side.
However, for most swarming decks
(Wolves, Spawn, Demons, etc.) this gives them a distinctly better advantage later on. A lot of character-specific decks or power decks (Dog Leader, Priestesses, Inuyasha/Kagome) really gain nothing from the extra slots. 2 is usually the max after about turn 7 or 8.
The really mean deck to throw this in is a Chibi deck though. Since they gain power by having more Chibi in play, having DT out turn 1 is ideal for the deck.
I think this was originally designed to help school girls, though it really isn't useful after a few turns. You should have 2-3 character shield your girls and copies in your hand to save them. You should have to play more then 3 after turn 3.

Rating:

All decks: 2/5
Throw it in swarms or chibis. Otherwise, it isn't giving you a huge advantage.

J. Wyatt As we continue with my week of picks, we come to Downtown Tokyo. A Kijin Promo card that can be good, if used right, but can be dangerous sometimes.

First of all, it costs 1, no big deal. The main part is where both players may play up to 3 characters per turn instead of 2. That can be sweet in the right deck. Decks that rely on a large amount of non-unique characters, or that needs to get their characters out fast will love this. I run it in Chibis because they love field presence, and with Chibis, letting your opponent also gain an extra character per turn might not be too big of a risk. However, with other decks, you might want to make sure your opponent can't take as much of an advantage from this card as you can. Decks this works well against, Three's Company, Dog Leader. Decks it might not work as well against, Villagers, Spawn, Flesh-eating Demon, Panther Tribe, Chibi.
You also need to be very careful with this card because of the other part of its effect. It has to be the last card you play during setup. Which means that you should play it ONLY when you are playing second that turn, unless it is against the 2 aforementioned decks this card doesn't help(or any others that may have slipped my mind.), so that they don't get the effect a turn before you do.

Pros:
+only 1 deck cost
+Lets you play 3 characters a turn
+Works great with some decks

Cons:
-Lets your opponent play 3 characters a turn -Must be last card played during setup -Can really help some opponent's decks

Casual:2.5/5
Deck that loves quick field presence:4/5
Art:3.5/5 Very well drawn, but not too interesting
