Weiß Schwarz (ヴァイスシュヴァルツ, Vaisu Shuvarutsu?) is a Japanese collectible card game created by Bushiroad. The game is separated into Weiß-side and Schwarz-side. Weiß & Schwarz is German for white and black respectively. The Weiß-side features mostly anime series while the Schwarz-side features mostly visual novels, Japanese RPGs, etc. series. As a general rule, series under Weiß usually have better card effects when compared to those series under Schwarz. However, with the newer series entering the respective sides, there is not much difference between the two.
