After losing to Zakira, Shobu Kirifuda decided to leave for Spain in order to become stronger. He somehow reunited with his father, Shori Kirifuda, who was believed to be dead 3 years ago. Soon as he discovered the story of the "7 Duel Masters", Shobu decided to find the rest of the missing Duel Masters, not knowing that Zakira have also begun searching for them along with his elites, dubbed the "After-R" (Revolution). His new journey all over various countries in the world would mean more meetings and reunions, but that also eventually leads Shobu to face an old friend, yet a new enemy; the brainwashed alter-ego of Hakuoh who is now known as "White".
The story focuses on Shobu traveling all over the world to stop the machinations of Zakira and his elites from killing its strongest Duelists. It is considered canon to the official Duel Masters timeline and leads directly to Katta and Joe's arcs in the anime.
