Bakugan Battle Brawlers begins with Danma Kuusou, a boy who invented the game Bakugan with his friend Shun Kazami after mysterious and seemingly random cards fell out of the sky. Together with their other friends, they form a team called the "Bakugan Battle Brawlers" in order to play this new game together. But unknown to these young friends, Bakugan is much more than a simple past time. Their game accidently sucks them into an alternate dimension called Vestroia, the home ground of Bakugan.

Vestroia has recently come under attack by creatures known as the Doom Beings. This realm is balanced by the Perfect Core, which itself is formed by the Infinity and Silent Cores. When the evil Bakugan Naga attempted to take this great power for himself, he was unable to absorb the negative energy he wished to steal and found himself trapped in the Silent Core. Now, his presence within the core has destabilized Vestroia and attempts to merge with Earth as well as many other worlds. Danma and his friends must team up with individuals from other worlds who have also been drawn into this epic battle. As Naga is seeking the Infinity Core so that he may complete the Perfect Core in order to gain control of Vestroia, Earth, and all other worlds, time is of the essence in this devastating war of worlds.


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

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 read more

I remember watching this show as a kid and loving it. Though today I don't think is as good as 7 year old me did I find myself enjoying it.

The Story
It is fairly generic. But, I do think that though it is generic it still does it's story alright. So I give it a 6/10.

The Art

The Sound
You know for a kid's show the dub is not all that bad. Also that theme song is pretty damn good. What are gonna do? The odds are stacked against you! 5/10

The Character
This is one of those shows where even though the characters are generic, I still fell that read more

This anime gives me an immense feeling of nostalgia because it is the first anime I've ever seen in my life

Watching this show as a kid brings back memories of how much I enjoyed watching it. It truly was amazing to my 7 year old self

However, if you watch the anime when you're older or look at it upon further inspection and critique you realize that the show was just mediocre

Being older I have more experience in really good shows and now that I look at this show again It isn't as good my 7 year old self thought

Art design is very bland and story read more
