*No Spoilers* --> This is an objective review, more of a rant though.
Metal Fight is the revival of the popular and original Beyblade series. So why is it so much less popular? The story.. really has nothing to offer. The premise is dumb and it's an endless parade of spinning tops battling each other, defying the laws of physics and realism. No narrative, no goal and displays the classic cliche protagonist that's so powerful that nobody can beat him. The series tries to pull you in by making the battles of spinning tops more "epic" by adding in music and emotions to try to tug at your heart strings. You can only go so far with spinning tops.
The story is so overdone that it wasn't even that much different from the original series. There is also no originality whatsoever not to mention the most annoying characters ever. Seriously, there's this one guy who keeps saying "BULL" "BULL" "BULL" "BULL" "BULL" BUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUULLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL".
The characters are just too unrealistic and stupid to take seriously.
Beyblade is dying out because it lost its momentum. The original series was only popular due to the extremely well done dub which showcased some of the best OST's of its time. This series is being milked even further to allocate merchandise for kids that goes along the lines of trading cards, spinning tops and other games.
The bad news is that this show takes advantage of its flashy animation and pathetic characterization to draw kids in and get their attention. This is not a positive message that you're sending to the younger generation. Stop milking this series, it's cancer. read more
