STORY: 7/10
Though it begins as a team of boys merely wanting to be the champions of the Beyblading world, the story of Bakuten Shoot Beyblade soon branches out into various "arcs" that give you insight into a particular character, and through each of their individual ordeals the group as a whole become closer to one another. While there's also the somewhat cliche issue of global takeover to deal with, it seems primarily to be a tale of friendship and, discreetly, cultural diversity. Though the main protagonists all band together to represent Japan, each comes from a different corner of the globe, and the friends they read more

Let it rip!! Like a fart, you mean.

Beyblade has to be the seriously DUMBEST ANIME EVER. Or at least the story is. It's on the level of Yu-Gi-Oh for how moronic it is. Let's see, the fate of the world rests in the hands of...spinning tops!! Omg, someone help us ALL--if these ten year old boys don't play with SPINNING TOPS then the society we know will run amuck!!

Everyone looked like ice cream melting on a cone. The art was spectacular, and not worth anything more than you can get with a box of Crayolas. Sound was mostly kids screaming about passing gas read more

I watched this when I was 12-14 years old, after I have already damaged my brain with Pokemon and Yu-gi-oh. I did enjoy it, but even 12-14 years old kid can see why is something happening (for the coolness and for money) and major...failures.

Take Yu-gi-oh, make the deck with one card, that is getting stronger (Pokemon?) and make a basic toy. Add something techy and here you go - you have a Beyblade! No, the story isn't that bad, but that is just because it is MADE for being bad. Who cares actually? The bad are bad, the good are good, one good guy is read more

Ok Imma start out by saying im not much of a writer so I may say something that sounds confusing or etc etc. I with it?

Anyway the point of my reviews are to give people a clear understanding on whether or not to watch a series or not. If i can achieve this then i think my review done its job. I try not to give any details to the story itself (That is in theory what a summery is for) I just try to state Pro's and Con's.

First I think anybody who is planning on watching this or that is about to watch read more

I just can't believe that nobody wrote recommendation for those two, so I decided to write one.
Both are shows which many people watched in childhood. They are shounens for all ages. In both, main character travels with his friends. They fight together and have battles in the arenas and stadiums. In both animes they use kind of 'beasts' to do it. They also have rivals and want to be the master.
