Upon the creation of marble launching machines known as B-Daman, people started to participate in the competitive sport B-DaBattles. However, B-Daman contain hidden powers which enhance marble shooting that can be misused for combative purposes.
One night, a certain object residing behind the walls of a restaurant calls upon Yamato Daiwa—a boy raised by cats. Yamato has been having visions of the object which resembles a machine familiar to everyone. Little does he know, hidden behind the walls is not a mere machine, but the fate of the world.
I watched this when I was like 11 or 12 i think.
It is similar to beyblade and stuff like that.
The story is about a happy and hyperactive kid who is always up for a challenge.
He also happens to be the one who gets to have a legandary b-daman called cobalt blade. Bassicly It's a small robot-like figure that can shoot marbles with a special effect. The type of effect will match the type of bdaman you have and you can go to tournaments and battles and such. And yamato wants the be the best "b-daplayer" there is of course. Along the way he makes lot's
of friends and teammates and also enemy's of course.
I really enjoyed it and watched it multiple times.
I liked the rivalery and the fights, I also bought a lot of stuff back then(you could buy your own b-daman in toy stores) and pretty much everyone around my age was playing it.
It was one of the things that brought me closer to anime when I was younger.
I also like that they keep adding new stages and features to the game so it's like you see a different game everytime.(in the tournaments and stuff)
I like it, there's the good guys and the bad guys, but it's not all that black and white, most of the bad guys seem to have a reason for it.
And your worst enemy's may become your best friends in time.
That what I liked about it, it shows you everyone's background.
It was very uplifting and funny at times, with a good chunk of drama in it.
A bit cliché sometimes, but hey what can you expect with such a young age group.
I personaly don't like the style of the main caracter yamato, but for the rest i found it very original and nicely done. The battles are very well put and you really get sucked into the action.
The soundtracks and such I think their good, but in the sequel they have some kick ass background battle music. The sound effects for the shooting bdaballs made it a lot more interessting and realistic.
The characters each have their own story and different personalities.
They each have their own strenght and that shows in their bdaman too,
you'll see the cool and calm ones walking with the control type bdamans and the more bigmouthed fired up people with the power type. Friendship and loyalty are very important and almost every character will show that regardless off wich side their on (good or bad).
I really really enjoyed it!
It's funny and exciting, and of course you'll learn a thing or two about life,
even in a world that evolves around a childs game, you'll be able to relate to their problems.
It just was one of my favorite series when I was little so that why I gave it such a high score. Also enjoyment is really the most important part of an childrens anime and smart, complicated plot twists and all that stuff is less important in this case.(in my opinion at least)
It's fun and easy to follow and I think it was a smart way of making us buy a lot of shit. Haha, but most importantly I think you must keep in mind that this was ment for an younger audience.
So if your as old as me right now (17/18) I don't think you'll enjoy it, if your younger like 11 to 14, it might be something for you.
Battle B-Daman is Beyblade.
Battle B-Daman is Medabots.
It's every other anime that was made to sell toys!
I may be being too hard on this anime since it is for kids, but the biggest problem I have with this anime is it doesn't offer anything new. It's nothing, but a collection of cliches and character tropes I have seen been used in these previously mentioned anime and more!
Now, don't get me wrong, I like anime like Yu-Gi-Oh and Beyblade and the others, but the problem with this anime is there is NOTHING that sets it apart from the others.
problem I have with the story is B-Daman doesn't look that fun of a game. Half the battles they fight and the games they play are stuff like "who can knock over the most pins with their B-Daman" or "can you hit the target" which just isn't as exciting as when it's one player fighting another directly. Plus, I have a tough time imagining kids in real life playing B-Daman.
Also, the story could not be more simpler. What I liked about other anime like Yu-Gi-Oh and Medabots was at least there was a much more interesting and complex story arc and characters had better motivations. Here it's just "I'm evil because the script says I'm evil".
Take the most annoying parts of characters like Goku from Dragon Ball Z and Naruto from Naruto and be sure to leave out what made them cool and then you have Yamato. There isn't anything cool or funny about Yamato. He's just annoying, gives speeches about friendship, and wins all his battles with his main character deus ex machina powers.
The villain isn't much better, either. Marta-B was a generic and forgettable villain that wanted to destroy the world because...oh right, his only motivation is he's evil.
There were some characters I did like, however.
Bull, with his multiple personalities, was fun.
Yamato's mom was funny whenever she got mad.
However, neither of these characters get as much screen time as Yamato, unfortunately.
The art would have to probably be the best part of this show.
It's cool how the show is set in this world where you have characters that are giant talking cats, robots, and sort of humans like Lee. What is with his eyes?! There's no white, it's just black! Is he an alien?
Also, there is a large variety of B-Daman and each one is pretty well and uniquely designed.
Battle B-Daman is pretty forgettable anime. There's nothing memorable or worthwhile about the characters. The story is about as bare bones as you can get. I'd recommend Medabots or Beyblade over this.
Let's take a quick jog around memory lane and remember those anime you used to watch and enjoy as kids. Feel the nostalgia and see if your favorites made the list and discover more that other children enjoyed.
