Aquarian Age (アクエリアンエイジ, Akuerian Eiji) is a Japanese collectible trading card game. It is marketed and produced by Broccoli, which produces games and Anime-related goods. The Aquarian Age franchise now supports a PlayStation game, a comic book, and a TV series; Aquarian Age: Sign for Evolution featuring a musical score by composer Yuki Kajiura.
Juvenile Orion (オリオンの少年, Orion no Shōnen) is a trading card game and shōjo manga series. As a spin-off of the Aquarian Age franchise, the story revolves around characters with supernatural powers.
The trading card game was developed and released in Japan by Broccoli Co., Ltd. The manga was written by Sakurako Gokurakuin, otherwise known as Ashika Sakura. It was serialized in Monthly Stencil from June 2001 to August 2003. Originally published in Japan by Square Enix, Broccoli Books also has an English translation of the Juvenile Orion manga.
In the game, the player takes the role of a "Mindbreaker", who can control and unlock the powers of the game characters. The goal is to defeat other Mindbreakers (players) and to grow stronger. The game continues until the player has defeated all of their opponents, or has been stripped of their powers; thus being knocked out of the game.
Unlike similar TCG, the player fields game characters instead of spells. They must gain control over each character before it can be used in a game. If a player is unable to control a character properly, it may turn on them.
