Hi all, third review here. Having seen all of this anime i thought I would share my views, I have to say this is by far my favourite series of beyblade.
The story of this is basically evil people cloning and improving on the good guys power. For me this was very interesting watching them battle past their enemies and struggle to come up with ways to win.
The effects on this we're pretty cool although nothing special to be entirly honest, the animation in itself was well made.
The music to this was pretty awesome, kinda rock-based with the odd softer track when appropriate.
Characters we're yet again original and I thought Kai was really cool, sorta reminded me like Riku from Digimon with the whole, not a care in the world attude. There are a few main characters, which are a small group of friends. Handful of beybladers and their tech guy, kenny the nerd lol.
I really enjoyed this because although you may be thinking it's a spinning top and such it's the feeling behind the battles which connect the bit-beast and bladers as one, sort of like a yu gi oh connection for duelist to cards.
Overall this was a pretty good anim, action packed and a decent story...Obviously aimed at the younger age I really couldnt imagine a 30 year old watching this although there maybe some... If your under 20-ish I don't see the harm in giving this a shot. read more
Okay, I would like to point out just how varied those scores are, i'll explain that as we go.
Bakuten Shoot Beyblade 2002 (Beyblade V-Force in the U.S.) is a tragic failure at a series.
Now, except for G-rev Beyblade fails at stories. This is the worst of it. There's more coherency in a drunk dad solo song at a wedding than in this. You'll never know where you're at in the story until the last 3 eps and other than that it offers nothing new or exciting.
Good, not butt ugly, it's passable and the CG blades look nice. The problem is consistency. Last season the characters looked 14 to 15. They look like 11 year olds here. There's just a lack of follow-through that hurts what could be a fun art style.
Suffers from generic songs. The Japanese version has increasingly generic music that bores that they can put on for you to ignore while you watch a terrible show. Don't ask about the dub, it suffers from the Rap in anime plague.
Let me get something straight. Beyblade has one of the better main character sets in anime; their main 5-6 I absolutely adore; however, I dock 4 points for this season specific characters. All the season 2 only characters here are badly designed, generic, annoying, and there's more of them than periods in War and Peace. Good luck keeping up with them.
Only if you're a sadist can you enjoy this. It's generic, you can't follow it, and you shouldn't try.
I'm not giving it a 1 just because of the main characters, the fact that the art isn't in itself terrible and the sound isn't terrible. If it didn't have the mains, this would be unwatchable. read more
Both anime's are very similar since they both go about a (team) sport, contain competition, traveling around and participating in tournaments meeting new opponents. Also, both anime's are made for the same focus group (PG).
