Western Animation: Exchange Student Zero

Exchange Student Zero is an Australian television film on Cartoon Network that premiered on 16 December 2012. It is the first animated Australian made production to be commissioned by the Cartoon Network.

John and Max are two school friends, obsessed with a fantasy card game called Battle Day Zero, who inadvertently bring one of the game’s characters, Hiro, to life. Hiro is passed off for an exchange student at school and so his peculiarities are somewhat overlooked while John and Max figure out how to get him home. That is until the game that brought Hiro pours even more exotic creatures into the sleepy little Perth town. Life will never be the same, but then as John and Max discover, it is far more exciting this way.

It's notoriously compared to the Shut Up Cartoons show, Oishi High School Battle but what with the unsubtle nature of this show (also worth noting that it seems to poke fun at Yu-Gi-Oh! or Bakugan), it's a Foregone Conclusion from here on out.

Somewhat an inversion of Kappa Mikey.
