Synopsis

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.

Background

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.

Honestly for me this anime was bad, It ripped of pokemon big time and little bit of yu-gi-oh, only ones that will tell you otherwise havent seen those shows. ok its not soo bad if its a rip of, I love those shows. First is the dialog, its corny, annoying and pain to listen. second monsters are used all over again and again, in next episode by other players, theres not even many of them like yugioh one episode has more then in full season of this. Same goes for strategy if you see one episode win, the others kinda end the same, read more

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

With time on my hands I've decided to write a review for one of my favorite TV shows out at the moment: Bakugan Battle Brawlers. Hopefully this review will get you wanting to watch this extremely good series and have you looking forward to each new episode. This is only my 1st fully planned Review, so it probably won't be that good, but I'm giving it a shot.

Story: 10/10
I've given the storyline a 10 out of 10 as the storyline is very well made and there is hardly a dull moment during any of these episodes. During the first few episodes of Bakugan, it may 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
