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

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

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.

Story:
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

When it comes to kiddie anime, I usually do not give out tens. And msot of what I say is opinion, not fact. So don't take it too personal just because I perfer this season over the other two.

Story:

Spinning tops has never been this badass before! And I love how they made it into an extreme professional sport. If you were to explain the story to someone who has never seen the anime, it would come off as silly to them.

Art:

The art style is pretty unique. I didn't like how the style was altered to look OMFG KAWAII ^__^ and like your typical 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.
