Storyline

Dan Kuso's life changed one day when cards fell out of the sky, which he and his friend Shun used to invent a game called Bakugan. With other friends, they form a group called the Bakugan Battle Brawlers, and then are accidentally dragged into fighting for the fate of Vestroia (the Bakugan's home dimension). Vestroia loses its natural balance and merges with the Earth and many other worlds. An evil Bakugan called Naga was tempted to take the power of the Infinity and Silent Cores, which formed the Perfect Core that balanced Vestroia, but absorbed too much negative energy and thus was trapped within the Silent Core and destabilised Vestroia. So Dan and the brawlers decided to bring back balance by meeting new friends and allies in the other worlds, learn more about the origin of the Bakugan; and facing Naga, a rogue bakugan who seeks the mighty Infinity Core so that he could complete the all-powerful Perfect Core and have almighty power and absolute control over Earth and Vestroia.

Trivia

Billy, the Subterra brawler, has a very similar appearance to Ash Ketchum in Pokémon. Billy wore Ash's Indigo League hat from Season 1 in Pokémon, Billy throws a Bakugan similar to Ash's throwing style: a a backwards turn of the cap, then saying the command. On top of these things, Billy and Ash both have high, and particularly annoying voices. See more »

Did what it needed to do in order to satisfy its target audience.
10 July 2016 | by theohigginsSee all my reviews

What sets aside my review from the other (justified) negative reviews for this show is that I was the target demographic at the initial time of broadcast.

People compare Bakugan to shows like "Pokemon", "Beyblade" and "Yu- Gi-Oh" describing it as either ripping them off or following in their "terrible" footsteps. However this works for this show and the three aforementioned shows all had similar target audiences and were successful in satisfying them.

This puts these comparisons in a very favorable light for Bakugan.

The show itself lacks substance, depth and common sense when viewed through the eyes of an adult but for a child, these traits do not constitute a good show. They constitute a bad show that requires more brainpower to understand and enjoy.

Bakugan taken at face value is a very poor show clearly designed to push toys to children however, it does this extremely well.

I remember enjoying this show a large amount and would urge any parent or older sibling to allow a younger child who has rejected "better" animes in the past the chance to watch something they will enjoy.

This show on its own: 3/10

This show for children: 7/10 as it still falls short of other similar shows like "Pokemon", "Beyblade" and "Yu-Gi-Oh"
