Mysterious cards came down from the sky one day. Capable of summoning powerful creatures from another dimension, they became the centerpiece of a new game called Bakugan. The game gained instant popularity among children and teenagers, with the best of them competing in a worldwide ranking.

Meanwhile, war for domination over Vestroia, the homeland of Bakugan cards, rages on. Invaded by the White Dragon Naga and his servants, the Doom Beings, the realm becomes increasingly destabilized. Dimensions begin to merge and many Bakugan players come to realize that their pastime is not merely a game.

Danma Kuusou, one such Bakugan player, intends to become the World Ranking's leader someday. However, during one of his fights he experiences a vision of a clash in Vestroia. The fight suddenly moves to Earth, where Danma comes into possession of a talking, mighty fire Bakugan, Pyrus Dragonoid.

He soon gets dragged into the conflict, and together with his Bakugan Brawlers team, must traverse the dimensions and restore balance in a ravaged world.

The second and third seasons of Bakugan Battle Brawlers aired overseas before coming to Japan, while the fourth and final season of the show didn't air in Japan.

Alright, I thought I'd take the time and effort to write a review on a series I just recently finished(due to long breaks from it in order to do other things), and personally found very enjoyable, Bakugan Battle Brawlers. Now, this series gets a lot of hate, and I can see where some people are coming from when they say it's a rip-off of Yu-Gi-Oh or Pokemon. However, in reality, I don't feel that way. There are quite a few things in this anime that really make it stand out from all those others that people compare it too, so let's take a little time ...

This is the magnum opus of Yugioh clones. A true testament to how far we have come as a species. If there was one thing I could salvage as the sun becomes a red supergiant and consumes the earth, it'd be a box set of Bakugan: Battle Brawlers.

The story is about a young man named Dan maturing with his plastic magnet dragon toy thing and his friends. It truly feels like a satisfying adventure with a phenomenal ending.

The characters are not mere generic shounen tropes, they have transcended reality itself and end up feeling so real and fleshed out that you could reach in and ...

To be honest, I only watched this anime because I fell in love with Shun. It's the only reason, in my opinion, what keeps me from giving this anime a 2. But overall, the 1st season was actually enjoyable. I'd watch it again...if I was bored. And yes, it does have those yu-gi-oh and Pokémon rip-offs you guys have been hearing, but just give the 1st season a try. However, if you can handle the characters COMPLETLY over looking the obvious from time to time, you'll HATE this anime.
