This season is called Bakugan: Mechtanium Surge, and I have seen every episode and still watching the upcoming ones. The season has been split into 2 arcs, with one arc containing 26 episodes, and the other containing 20 episodes. I have seriously enjoyed this and I will tell you why.
Story: The story is very nice, some episodes are easy to predict but not enough to make you dislike it. This season is based almost completely on Dan's mental problems, he is 17, and after his partner Drago's latest evolution, he has been getting nightmares of a mysterious figure named Mag Mel out to get him. There home turf for Brawling is still based on Bakugan Interspace for most of the season, and the Brawlers are hosting a tournament called the Bakugan World Tournament, that is split into 5 battling seasons, Tag Team, Regular, Pre, Athletic Events, and the Final season. The top 3 brawling teams are Team Anubias, Team Sellon, and the Battle Brawlers. Dan is shunned by every single other brawler after he and Drago create a Mechtogan (A robot-like deity created by a Brawler and Bakugan) named Zenthon who causes rampage all through out the season. Dan runs off to New Vestroia, home of all Bakugan in order to train with his old friend Preyas to restart his bond with Drago. He is constantly attacked by Anubias and Sellon with their Chaos Bakugan (Bakugan created by destructive brawling). After Dan and Drago have their bond reconnected, they get even more help from Dan's old rival, Spectra Phantom, and defeat Mag Mel and his partner Razenoid who turn out to be the former Gundalia rulers: Emperor Barodius and his partner Phantom Dharak. Bakugan Interspace is destroyed in the process.
The Second Arc is completely different from the frst, it's been almost a year and Dan, Shun, Marucho, and their 2 friends from the past: Julie and Mira create the new and improved Bakugan City, where Bakugan from all over the universe come to live in peace with humans. The Brawlers are attacked by Rogue Bakugan and Mechtogan from the Doom Dimension called Nonet Bakugan/Mechtogan who both have different evil needs. The Nonet MEchtogan want to make Bakugan extinct while the Nonet Bakugan want to be freed from the Doom Dimension and unleash revenge on the humans and bakugan who sent them there. On the loose, is a evil deity named Wiseman created by evil energy from the Mechtogan out to do god knows what.
The story is awesome actually and will immediately make you in love with it. Overall 8/10.
Art: The art in this season is outstanding! The explosions, Bakugan and Mechtogan finally get their fair share of 3D/CGI animation. All Bakugan also have a metallic body part which adds even more epicness in the design. All characters have updated outfits in both seasons, and they look like casual, modern teenagers in the first arc and look even better in arc 2. This season even gets a updated ending scene (FINALLY!) Overall 10/10.
Sound: The sound is still the same as previous seasons, which is really the only downside to this season. Overall 4/10.
Character: The characters are awesome! This season brings back a bunch of old fan favorites that you will enjoy throughout the season. It also gives out it's very own dose of new characters with the only suckish ones being each member of Team Sellon. Sellon has a very disgustingly annoying british accent, and her teammates call her "Mistress" which becomes a knife in your ear after the 12th episode. There is also the disgusting Razenoid, who is a reincarnation of Phantom Dharak from the previous season. Razenoid is very annoying ALL THROUGHOUT THE SEASON! He really makes you wanna punch a homeless kitten once he evolves into what I like to call, Draco Razenoid. Overall 7/10.
Enjoyment: You will no doubt enjoy this season, it's just so fucking good, the writers and art designers made a extremely big improvement on the anime after their failure with Gundalian Invaders. Overall 10/10.
Overall: 9/10, Bakugan: Mechtanium Surge will make you want to hug a homeless kitten after every episode. Each preview will leave you wanting more, it's just a seriously good season. The only downside is the still-not-updated sounds and the (very few) failure characters.

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.
