Year 2055, four years after the events in Danball Senki W. LBXs have become the world’s largest hobby, big enough for pro leagues to be established, and people to make their entire living off being an LBX player. 14-year-old Arata is a new transfer student at Kamui Daimon Integrated Academy on Kamui Island, near Japan. Known to be the most prestigious institution in the world for raising LBX players and mechanics, entrance to the academy requires an extremely competitive hurdle of being the champion of at least three official tournaments. Along with other members of his platoon, they face rivals and delve into the secrets lurking within the academy.

People tell me that kodomo animes(animes for kids) are lack of good story, good animation, and enjoyment. I really can't understand what do they mean. There are lots of kodomo anime with good story, animation, and give people a great time. And Danball Senki Wars is one of those show, a really hidden valuable show which is (at least in my opinion) is better than most other kodomo animes, and even some mature animes.
The story of Danball Senki Wars begins in a simple way. Our reckless main character named Arata Sena came to the Kamui Daimon Academy, a school for LBX, ...

This is one of those children Anime that, despite its "for children" tag, is actually pretty fascinating and can get surprisingly dark to some point of the story.

Although the very usual school-life settings otherwise, the story is made such that apart from the daily schoolings, the students, which are professional LBX players or engineers, have to participate in a grand war where LBX are used instead of humans to conquer a "flag", which when successfully conquered, the ...

Preliminary (30/37 eps)
Danball Senki Wars's targets are kids so no wonder that there aren't many people are watching this. However, it's truly a hidden gem that actually has a nice story and deveplopment.

For the story, I give 9. The story starts off very simple: a hot-blooded boy who has a big dream of becoming a pro LBXs player goes to the school and meets his friends. It's very kiddy, but at the same time, you can feel the competition inside the school and its seriousness. It really gives off an armosphere that they are really in War. However, after a douze of episodes, the story starts changing ...
