In 2046, a revolutionary 80% shock-absorbing reinforced cardboard has been developed, rapidly transforming the world's exports. The reinforced cardboard would soon become the battleground for a popular children's hobby called "LBX" (Little Battler eXperience).

When I was first getting into anime a few years ago, I developed a bias against the use of CGI in anime. I used to hear anecdotally from other people in the community (and sometimes still do) that CG animation is often used as a cost-cutting measure, and therefore it is bad. I completely agreed with them despite these conversations never really expanding past these handful of talking points.
