In this paper, we present Augmented Trading Card Game that enhances remote trading card game play with virtual characters used in the stories of popular animations and games. We show some observations about the way players use the system, realizing the game, and what their feelings and impressions about the system are. The obtained results are useful to consider how to use empathetic virtual characters in the real world's activities for future information services.
