Ok let's get this straight...
I am a HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE Bakugan fan. I loved this shit since the day it aired. The whole concept was completely awesome. Next....
I AM A HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE BAKUGAN: NEW VESTROIA fan. It took more of a mature feeling and just included that good ass feeling.
I even attended the BakuCon worldwide event in Los Angeles, New York, and DC. I enjoyed the previews they were showing for Bakugan: GI and had high expectations for it. I really thought this season was gonna be totally kick ass.
I was wrong.
Story: The story is average honestly. Dan Kuso, and his partner Bakugan, Pyrus Helix Dragonoid are the #1 Brawlers in Bakugan Interspace, a worldwide virtual reality game for Bakugan loving freaks. Dan, his best friends Shun and Marucho, partnered up with Ren Krawler, a Gundalian Brawler to help save his home land in a war against opposite planet: Neathia. They all turn on Ren once a princess hailing from Neathia arrives and tells the Brawlers the truth. They all head out to Neathia in order to saved the Sacred Orb ( A orb of light that is the supposed mother of all Bakugan) and stop the war between the 2 planets. At first it seemed like a good idea, and if the season wasn't filled with pointless filler episodes, and the exact same battles between the same Brawlers like fucking Pokemon: Diamond and Pearl, this could have been a successful prequel. Overall, a 6/10.
Art: The art is the same as the previous seasons. No new designs, and poor explosion drawings that could have easily been done in CGI animations (Seriously, they did it way better in the 4th season). 3/10
Sound: No new music, the opening is still the same, and the characters sound dreadful when screaming in pain. 3/10
Character: Ok, I really hate the characters in this season. They are all just plain annoying!! Dan, Shun, and Marucho are fine, they aren't as annoying as the others. First their is the Brawlers' Subterra companion. He yells, he says stupid stereotypical lines, he will make you want to punch your TV before you even have the chance to grab your remote. He gets even more annoying when he becomes evil, because he yells even more than he already has been! Then there are the Twelve Orders, a group of 12 evil Gundalian Brawlers. The only characters out of these guys I find not as annoying as the others is Sid Arcale, the Pyrus Brawler, and Jesse Glenn, the Ventus drama-loving Brawler. They actually decide to put up a good fight against the Brawlers, even though they sadly both die (Although Jesse is revived and joins the brawlers in the end). The most annoying out of all of these guys are KAzarina, the female Haos Brawler, and Zenet Sorrow, the other Haos Brawler. Kazarina is just a bitch, and she makes a lot of bitch moves in the second arc of the season. She even ambushes one of her partners and causes one of his many deaths. LUCKILY, one of the other members of the Twelve Orders kills her in the end :D Then there is Zenet who has a annoying-ass New Jersey/Brooklyn accent that is more annoying than Joey Wheeler's. Overall 2/10.
Enjoyment: THERE IS NO ENJOYMENT! THIS SEASON SUCKS SO BADLY! THE ONLY POSSIBLE ENJOYMENT YOU CAN GET IS SEEING THE NEW BAKUGAN IN ACTION, BUT THAT FADES AWAY CUZ AFTER THE FIRST 10 EPISODES, THE SAME BAKUGAN APPEAR FOR THE REST OF THE SEASON.
Overall: 3/10 If you like animes with good stories, read some summaries on this season's episodes instead of actually watching them. Even if you are a hardcore Bakugan fan, stay the hell away from this season of Bakugan, and just watch the previous seasons and the 4th installment to the series, Bakugan: Mechtanium Surge.
Thank you for reading my review :D read more
Ok so this is my first review ever!I decited to make it on Bakugan Season three because I really need to express my opinion on it!Don't kill me, but it may sound a little harsh!
The story is almost the same as the previous season! Dan,Marucho and Shun have to be the big heroes and save the world AGAIN! With tons of boring battles and explosions AGAIN,in the past seasons they at least were a little better!And AGAIN there's some crazy guy (now a wacky alien) trying to destroy the world AND to make things even worse they OVER DO IT WITH THE FANTASY!
The main idea of Bakugan was how kids battle with creatures called Bakugan using cards on Earth,nothing more nothing less, and later they have to save the Bakuagn's homeworld, BUT then they started ruining this idea with the sequels- OVERDOING THE FANATSY,ADDING UNNEEDED BATTLE GEAR TO THE BAKUGAN,CHANGING THE WHOLE Atmosphere of the show!
Same art, with not even a little improvement!
Nothing changed!Even the opening's the same!
Oh this is also one epic FAIL! One of this "natural" things that is done in bakugan is switching three of the six main heroes,leaving Marucho,Dan and Shun and three new characters every season.(Plus in my opinion every season, excluding the Season one ,is a little sexist, because from 6 main heroes only one is female).And leaving the old ones without a trace!This time the new characters are all Failed!The authors are obviously trying to give them the personality traits of the old ones AND also add new ones,which ruins the characters!I'll give you an example -the new Subterra character Jake has some personality traits like Baron from seasons two,but they are made so annoying that you just wanna switch the channel when watching.Phabia, the new female characters,is supposed to have the traits of toughness that Mira,Julie and Runo from the past seasons have, but is also given too much and made annoying!The character development isn't very big,still it's so-so good!The villains are all crazy,lusty aliens that shout nothing more than I want power or I'll take over the world or aaaaa!
The enjoyment depends on your preferences for a story and character! Altrough if you've watched the previous seasons, you won't like this one very much.And if you haven't watched the prequels you might not get some of the parts!
This is (from the four current seasons) the worst Bakugan season! read more
Cardfight!! Vanguard is obviously another Card game Anime.
Shounen series, many episodes, whole bunch of characters, for a young audience, full of fights, Bonds between friends and their cards/monsters, the English dub sucks, with a cute cast of females, too!
And as shounen it may be, it's fit for both females and males to watch.
The Protagonists however have many differences, but CF!!V does have Kai Toshiki who's similar to Shun in a few ways and give off a slightly similar vibe, what one would call a "Kuudere".
If you like this, you'll like the other, just like Bakugan, CF!!V also has a real life version of the card game which kids can buy and play, and in both Anime, the whole "players are in a different dimension while using their cards" thing is included, definitely worth a watch if you like Bakugan, an Anime portraying a fictional version of a real life Kid's game.
