The Disgaea Series is cool as hell. Everyone knows that. But did you know you can turn the RPG into a TCG and pit Midboss against the evil girls from K-On? Or SOS Brigade? Bad Ass sounding huh?
I was looking at Rosequeen.com, the offical Disgaea store or something like that. Dispite the very girly name, it has some cool stuff. Prinny T-Shirts, plushees, ect. Then I stumbled on the TCG.
I did some investigating and found out the "EN Trial" was an English translation of a huge TCG in Japan. It just sounds like an otaku's wet dream.

Weiß Schwarz is the name of the game. It pits various video game and anime characters against each other. It looks like it has been around for years, right under our noses. I don't know how to play it, but some of the characters are some of my favorites.
Some notable names include:
-Persona 3 and 4
-The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
-The King of Fighters
The only reason I can see that it would not do well, is that it leans more towards anime than video games. To the otaku, its cool, but there is no way it can be as mainstream as Magic, Pokemon, or Yu-Gi-Oh. The Familiar of Zero is simply not known as well as Psyduck. However, if my local card shop starts playing this, I'm there dude.
Small Note: I did not know how to tag the post, so I tagged it as Rant. Is that alright or should it have been something else? There needs to be a swag tag.
