This week, the broadcaster Nagoya TV began streaming the first episode's preview for Battle Spirits: Heroes, the latest television anime series based on Bandai's Battle Spirits card game. The preview highlights the new protagonist Hajime Hinobori, a 13-year-old middle school student who dreams of becoming Battle Spirits' new World Champion Hero on the Real Battle Field that his parents built.
The series will premiere on Sunday at 7:00 a.m. on the TV Asahi network.
The Battle Spirits anime franchise launched with the 50-episode Battle Spirits: Shōnen Toppa Bashin series on September 7, 2008. The Battle Spirits: Shōnen Gekiha Dan follow-up series premiered on September 13, 2009, and Battle Spirits: Brave debuted last September. The anime projects adapt the original trading card game, in which cards represent dragons, demons, birds, insects, and other spirits that the players can control in battles. Bandai imported the game to America in 2009.
