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 read more

The plot features Dan and his friends who invent a new game, after witnessing a strange event; this game consists of three-round fights, in which the players have cards and as a weapon for balls to put in the playing field which, when opened, turn into the Bakugan. Bakugans are monsters from another dimension and playing cards have a particular scope that corresponds to a natural element, such as fire, water, light, etc.
The plot consists of these kids who have to save the world from the wicked who use the Bakugan for their shady purposes.
The anime of which children and kids from 10 years up read more

When I watched it , it was one of the best Cartoon/Anime ever. Everyone used to talk about it. People used to play imaginary bakugan in the class or on the bus or outside when they didn't have the toys with them. I visit review sites to review this gem of an anime and I find really bad reviews about how the animation is bad, or the story is bad or how the characters are not developed properly or how the game makes no sense, that's absurd! First of all the game makes perfect sense.

The Game:

You set two gate cards , you set your bakugan, read more
