Bomberman Bidaman Bakugaiden

Show Summary

This anime is loosely based on a comic that had a bit different background. Bidama is glass marble balls -- "Vidro" is the word for glass in Portuguese (who first brought glass to Japan), combined with "tama" - balls - with modified pronunciation. The product was a collectible marble-like toy that could be played by some customized rule. Unlike the game which was made independently, the comic and anime was made as part of marketing for this product. Originally, the music for the series was written by the person who wrote the ones for the Bomberman game. However, the producer did not like music she turned in, and about a month before it aired he called me up and told me "I'd like to replace the whole soundtrack, so I want you to create pieces as early as possible." Since the actual work for the first episode was to end two weeks ahead of its actual airing, as you can expect I could not complete it for the first episode, and the actual switch took place after the fourteenth episode. I was also working on Legend of Basara at the same time, and I was often confused between the comical tunes of B-Bidaman and serious ones of Basara. It turns out that the SFX director for the series was Mr. Tsuruoka, with whom I worked for the anime movie "Odin" 12 years prior to this job. Despite being aired at early time of 7:30 in the morning, the show had good ratings.(I played the game Bomberman quite often with the staff at the record company) The sequal to Bomberman Bidaman Bakugaiden, is B Bidaman Bakugaiden V.
