Show Summary

One day mysterious cards fall from the sky and are picked up by hundreds of kids. The kids then develop a game know as Bakugan. However, there is more to the game then they thought. The Bakugan come from another world known as Vestroia, where the evil Naga is trying to conquer the world by finding the Infinity Core. Now the kids and Bakugan must team up to stop this threat. Broadcast History: Bakugan Battle Brawlers premiered in the U.S. on Cartoon Network on Sunday, February 24, 2008 after the premiere of the tenth Pokemon Movie- Pokemon: The Rise of Darkrai.

  • It's not too bad, though it kinda went down hill

    I really liked the first season of this show, it showed that you can make something simple as toys and cards and make it a real life game.

    However the show went downhill with the extra amount of characters in the series. Plus some of the characters (especially Dan) were completely out of character.

    Again not a bad show, but the appeal kinda wore off...... I'll just stick with the first season only.

    Also no it is not a Pokemon/Digimon/Beyblade ripoff at all- same genre but different settingmoreless
  • You've got to be kidding me...

    The first season of Bakugan was freaking awesome. you have these six regular kids who are literally thrown into saving the world. They have no idea how or what's happening,but it's not good. you have this badass villain who turns out to be one of the female protagonists and than you have these bakugans with different personalities and quirks. It's fun, it's cute, and it's direct. You have a solid ending. Then it goes to Hell with the second season. They threw away some of the best characters. Alice? Oh come on she turned out to be the major villain last time! Runo and Julie-they were one of the six strongest people. There ranks were literally 1. Dan 3 . Shun 4. Marucho 6. Julie. Then they went and took 2,5,and 6 out the picture so some boys can come in and take their place? Ace? Mira? Bard or whatever his name was? No! Then the next season and it sunk deeper. Alice doesn't even appear and I don't think Runo does. By the fourth season I was done, I was like How dare they? So basically watch the first season and nothing else, maybe the season season because it's not as bad as the rest.moreless
  • Gets worst every season

    When I watch the first season of this bakugan show I thought it was OK at least watchable. But then the next season and afterwards were terrible. What I thought of is bakugan gets worse every season. It's stupid to hear some random bakugan names what like colosis dragon what the heck name is that. The whole plot messes up season after season. Just one word terrible.
  • It takes "bad" to a whole new level.

    The heroes of this show can stop time. Sounds pretty exciting, right? It did, until I realised that instead of elaborating upon that (and the implied ability to walk through practically any substance), they make a lame Pokemon rip-off.

    The characters are one-dimensional, the story makes little to no sense, and there is no action, and even when they try making it exciting, they fail miserably.

    The writers clearly didn't even try, the whole show is basically a very long toy advert. I mean, I know it's a kids' show, but so was, say, The Last Airbender. Overall, this is a 1 out of 10. It would be 0, but I appreciate all the work that's probably gone into animating this otherwise steaming pile of sh*t.moreless
  • Eh...

    At first, I didn't give the show a chance when it first debuted. I watched for awhile but just thought it was too stupid. Needless to say, I decided to watch all the episodes and seasons on YouTube last year to formulate my own opinion.

    To start things off, I'm not going to say it's a ripoff of Pokemon or Yuigoh. Yeah, they are similar but I just throw it into the "collectable toy anime series'"

    Anyway, the problem I have with this anime is just how poorly written it is (at least the dub anyway). I've seen a lot of shonen anime so maybe this is why I didn't care for any of the characters but I digress. I didn't like how one dimensional the characters were, especially the main character Dan. Also, the voices. Man, a lot of the voices were pretty bad. My least favorites were Runo, Julie, and a bunch of the villains. They just were bad in my opinion. Also the creature designs. Some were okay but they all looked like Yugioh/Transformers rejects (lol0. I just couldn't take them serious.

    Another problem was that the plots were way too predictable. Okay, maybe I'm reading into it a little too much but seriously, in like 2 of the arcs, the villains fought within each other (betraying and whatnot). The heroes didn't have to do anything because the villains would be their own downfall considering all the betraying and whatnot (most prevalent in the New Vestroia and third season).

    The only good I see from the show was that the art style was semi decent. Not all that good but not so bad. And the only characters I liked in the show were Mira, Shun, & Baron. Oh, I also liked Keith/Spectra when he joined the good side. When he was a villain, he was a total Vegeta wannabe in my opinion lol

    All in all, I only recommend this show to those who absolutely are addicted to anime and don't mind hyper cliches'. Otherwise, I wouldn't really recommend this.moreless
