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).

Four years later, a boy named Yamano Ban who loves to play with LBX (although without a mecha himself) is given a case containing the model AX-00 by a mysterious woman. He is told that he now holds the hopes and despairs of mankind in his hands.

i'm going to say it right away: i was very skeptical towards danball senki - having been a fan of level 5's other series, inazuma eleven - i didn't think much of this one. i actually put it off for several years, thinking that the CGI battle scenes would be even more boring than low-budget soccer battles.

was i wrong in doing this? absolutely.

danball senki is terribly underrated - even more so than inazuma. now, i'm not saying there isn't any flaws, but for what it is, (a KIDS show) it is incredibly well done, and i encourage all of you to check it out.
