Join Danma, Chouji and Dragonoid as they unite with the new Bakugan Resistance in an attempt to restore peace and freedom to their enslaved planet, New Vestroia. The newly-formed group of friends must battle the evil Vestals to free the captured Bakugan and destroy Vestal’s evil plans for domination.
The next series into the Bakugan world really seemed boring as hell. The characters don't feel like themselves in this series. We get one girl out of three girls we get in the last series. They tried to keep Dan not stale but he felt too in the spotlight. I mean Dan and Drago seem like the strongest team out of everyone they had and no focus were there except for Dan,Mira,Spectra. The others were much in the background and the music in Japanese was the best out of the series. Ace and Baron felt boring and empty.
I ended Bakugan hoping for a decent second season that i would enjoy, but sadly, I was wrong.
The story is actually not that bad. A new bad guy is here along with a handful of other people from the new Vestroia and out of all of them only a few go to Dan's side. Masquerade aka Alice is no where to be seen, but they don't talk about her often anyway. And they all have new bakugan excluding Dan. Which is confusing since Drago is the new core. Oh and when I say "they all" I mean Dan,
Marucho, and Shun. Thats right, the girls are left out of all the excitement, which bothers me. The original bakugan anime was fair, having three girls and three boys on the team to save the world from utter destruction. But now their literally just girls who sit on the sidelines and cry for our mighty Dan to win. It's so pathetic. Runo's bakugan; Tigrerra, is stepped on by the new bad guy and Tigrerra dies. And Runo doesn't know it. Julie want's to help the new battle brawlers and she almost succeeds, but she doesn't have a certain item so she can't and is left out. I'm a big fan of Julie so this really bothers me.
The sound, art, and characters are basically the same, but the enjoyment Ii had watching this was very low: a 1. And for all the right reasons.
Please, if you like bakugan, don't waste your time watching this trash. Please.
I started New Vestroia without expecting much. I couldn't see how they could continue the story after the ending of Battle Brawlers, but I was positively surprised. I was thrilled from the first episode, already liking the new main characters (I didn't really like Julie and Runo anyway) and happy to see Dan, Marucho, and later on, Shun, back. The story of New Vestroia takes a more mature feeling, and there is more than just brawling. Even if I miss Masquerade, there's a lot of interesting villains to replace him.
I liked Battle Brawlers, but I LOVE New Vestroia, so if you liked it too, I
strongly suggest you to give it a try, especially if your favorite character is still on the show. And even if he/she is not a main character anymore (if it was the case), don't give up, they all have some cameos later on ;)
