Chrono and Aichi engage in a heated cardfight. Although Chrono tries his best to fulfill the conditions of the new card he got from Aichi, he is defeated before getting the chance to use it. Later, when Kouji and Kai arrive, they intend to leave with Aichi and Kamui. Chrono wants to come along, but Kouji decides to test him to see if he is worthy enough.
In spite of the high stakes, Chrono and Shion thoroughly enjoy their cardfight which reminds everyone of how fun Vanguard can be.
Chrono and the others meet and consult with Nome Tatsunagi, who tells them what has been going on. According to him, there are units who come from Planet Cray and possess fighters via a method called "Different World Ride", or "Diffride" for short. However, in the case of Onimaru and Noa, they have been possessed by evil units.
The U20 continues into its second stage. Dubbed the Castle Royale, fighters will battle each other in a five-tiered castle area. The first four teams to reach the top of the castle and have the highest amount of points will then advance to the final stage. Furthermore, unlike the first stage, once a fighter loses a match, they will be eliminated with no chance of returning into battle. As the Castle Royale goes underway, Taiyou fights and loses to Team Diffrider's Verno Farenheart.
A sudden power outage occurs, which was caused by Onimaru and his team. Amidst the confusion, Onimaru tries to sneak his way into the field but is halted by Chrono and Kouji. Onimaru and Kouji have a cardfight with Chrono observing them. However, when the power comes back on, the fight is called off. Later, as the first stage resumes as normal, Onimaru returns to his original objective: a portal that Noa Hoshizaki of Team Nippon had accidentally stumbled upon. Inside the portal, Onimaru performs a Different World Ride, making Noa become possessed by Star-Vader, Chaos Breaker Dragon.

The third day progresses with only eight teams remaining. Kazuma finds himself playing against Luna Yumizuki, who wants to make him smile through this fight. Though initially pressured by Luna, Kazuma defeats her and becomes a fan of hers. Meanwhile, Chrono loses to Nagisa, who mentions that Kamui entered the U20 because of Kouji. Chrono tries to ask Kamui about this but is unable to get an answer from him.
Near the end of the first stage's third day, Tokoha fights and defeats her rival Rin, who has always been like a wall for her. With this victory, Tokoha's team advances to the second stage, which leaves only two spots remaining.
To see if Chrono is strong enough for the challenges to come, Kouji cardfights him. Chrono manages to use the card given to him by Aichi, Beyond Order Dragon, to its fullest potential and defeat Kouji with it. With Chrono proving himself, he goes with Kouji and the others to see someone who knows about Team Diffrider: Nome Tatsunagi.

The second day of the U20 first stage ends. As all the teams return to their homes, Chrono meets Team New Nippon and has dinner with them. Meanwhile, Rin decides that she is fed up with being on the team. She challenges Shion to a cardfight on top of a skyscraper; if she wins, then she will quit. At first frustrated by Shion's reasons for wanting to enter the U20 in the first place, Rin rekindles her own fighting spirit through this fight. Afterwards, Rin decides to stay with the team.
All eyes turn to the cardfight between Chrono and Noa; whoever wins will earn his team the last spot to the second stage. As the fight goes on, Chrono slowly realizes that Noa is not acting like his usual self and is reminded of the time when he fought Onimaru. Despite overbearing pressure from Noa, Chrono makes a comeback victory, thus allowing Team Striders to advance to the second stage.
Before the U20 starts, Chrono, Tokoha, and Shion have their own "send-off parties" with their respective teams.

The end of the month is coming and Yuuta has thought he made his final decision, but after Hina’s outburst about her mama and papa, the decision has become even harder.
Learning from Chrono about Kazuma, Taiyou goes to confront Kazuma to see what kind of person he is. Despite a run-in with Kazuma's delinquent friends, Taiyou gets his chance to cardfight Kazuma. When Taiyou gains the upper hand, Kazuma almost decides to give up, which makes Chrono deduce that he has a fear of losing. However, Kazuma continues the fight and wins, much to his own surprise. Afterwards, Chrono and Taiyou decide to recruit Kazuma onto their team for the U20 Championship (despite Kazuma's refusal).
The one who Shion hopes to recruit to Fukuhara's Vanguard club is Rin Hashima, but doing so is not an easy task. Hayao requests for Rin to join, which she initially refuses, but he manages to catch her interest when he mentions that Mamoru Anjou will come teach the club. Later that afternoon, Rin comes to the clubroom before Mamoru does, and Shion coaxes her into playing against Hayao. While the two have their cardfight, Mamoru appears, and Shion tricks him into believing that Rin is a member of the club and she is training with Hayao. As a result, Rin reluctantly becomes an official club member.
Time has passed, and the members of Team TRY3 have gone their separate ways as they enter high school. Tokoha is studying abroad in France, Shion is attending Fukuhara High, and Chrono enrolls in Tokyo Metropolitan Harumi High School. However, Chrono has a hard time adjusting to his new school life. Later, while working at Card Capital 2, Chrono is challenged to a cardfight by a peculiar young man, who soundly defeats him with his Nubatama deck. Before leaving, the man reveals his name to Chrono: Kazumi Onimaru. Upon learning that Kazumi is the reigning "Under 20" Vanguard champion, Chrono decides to enter the U20 Championship.
Chrono's team, Striders, enters a U20-qualifying tournament held at the first Card Capital shop; this is their last chance to qualify for the U20. However, because Kazuma has not shown up yet, Chrono and Taiyou must fight their way through the tournament by themselves. Striders eventually make it to the grand finals, where they face Team Trinity Dragon. In the first game, Taiyou loses to Karl. Then, Misaki tells Chrono that if Kazuma does not appear within ten minutes, then Striders will lose by default. Thankfully, Kazuma appears at the last possible second and fights Kei in the second game.
To enter the U20 Championship, Chrono must find two other fighters and form a team with them. He recruits Taiyou but has yet to find a third member. Later at the card shop, Chrono meets an apathetic teenager named Kazuma Shouji, who also attends Harumi High School. He claims to have previously played Vanguard and requests Chrono to teach the game's rules to him. So, Chrono has a teaching fight with Kazuma, who slowly is reminded of how Vanguard is played. Despite acting nonchalant to most of Chrono's teachings, Kazuma becomes motivated when he gets the chance to stride. However, when Chrono tries to win on the following turn, Kazuma decides to quit, believing he already lost. Chrono tries to tell him to never give up until the very end and to believe in his own possibilities. He shows Kazuma that he would have gotten a heal trigger to help him, but he suddenly gets defensive upon touching his card. He then leaves, and Chrono wonders why Kazuma acted the way he did.
At Fukuhara High, Shion learns that the school's once-prestigious Vanguard club is past its prime and now in danger of being disbanded. Along with the club's sole remaining member, Henri Hayao, he makes a proposition to the school's board of directors; if the Vanguard club can win the U20 Championship, then the club will stay. Later, Shion and Henri have a cardfight. Noticing that Henri is playing scared, Shion helps him get over his nerves, and the two have an intense battle. After the fight, Henri remembers that they need a third member to enter the U20, and Shion knows just the person to recruit.
Along with a disguised Jaime, Tokoha returns to Japan to form her team for the U20. She recruits her best friend Kumi Okizaki and Satoru Enishi, who has been working at the Dragon Empire Branch, wishing to show people the appeal of Vanguard. Tokoha visits Card Capital 2 where she reunites with Chrono and Taiyou and also meets Kazuma. Wanting to know more about Kazuma, she decides to have a cardfight with him. Although Kazuma tries his hardest, Tokoha manages to win. She offers him a handshake afterwards, but Kazuma refuses it and leaves, frustrated by his lack of power as a cardfighter.
Miguel's death has left Tokoha saddened. One day, a tour guide tells her about the history of the Eiffel Tower and how it inherits the feelings of its creator long after his death. This lights a spark in Tokoha, motivating her to have a cardfight with Jaime. Together, they realize that as long as they continue playing Vanguard, Miguel will live on in their hearts. After the battle, Tokoha decides she wants to enter the U20.
Kazuma defeats Kei, which means that the final conclusive game will be between Chrono and Tsuneto.

Nonetheless, Chrono defeats Tsuneto, thus winning the tournament and qualifying his team to the U20.
While Tokoha's team wins a U20-qualifying tournament, Kazuma calls Chrono and tells him that he is quitting the team. Chrono goes to confront Kazuma about this, but he ends up getting captured by a gang who mistake him for Kazuma. The real Kazuma appears and challenges the gang's leader for Chrono's freedom. With inspiring words from Chrono, Kazuma manages to win, and the police (called in by Taiyou) arrive and arrest the gang.
The U20 begins with its first stage, the Cray Scramble, in which fighters are scattered across a virtual field resembling the planet Cray. They will have to search for and battle other fighters to gain points, and the first sixteen teams to get fifty points will qualify for the second stage. Defeated fighters are temporarily eliminated but can be brought back if a fellow team member gets a win. As the first stage progresses, Chrono meets Team New Nippon, a group who admires and models itself after Team Nippon. He fights the leader of New Nippon, Arata Nishizawa, and defeats him. When the first day ends, everyone is stunned when they learn that Onimaru's Team Diffrider has already advanced with Onimaru beating Shion and Tokoha in the process.
Chrono, Tokoha, and Shion enter in a U20-qualifying tournament with their respective teams. In this tournament, players are randomly paired up, and the team with the most collective victories will get a guaranteed spot into the U20. As the tournament progresses, Kazuma eventually fights Mamoru. Believing to be on the verge of losing to Mamoru, Kazuma decides to quit before the fight properly concludes, which angers Chrono. He tries to ask Kazuma about his pessimism and convince him to just try, but this leads to a small fight between the two, ending with Kazuma leaving. At the end of the tournament, Shion's team is declared the winner, and Mamoru informs Chrono about thugs who are using Vanguard to attack people.
Chrono's and Shion's teams meet and have a friendly team fight with each other.
