posted on by Egan Loo
The Beyblade: Metal Fusion anime series will premiere in North America on Canada's YTV channel on Saturday at 12:00 p.m. EDT. The Canadian television production company Corus Entertainment describes the plot as the following:
Following the Let it Rip phenomena that took over the TV screens and playgrounds in 2002, Beyblade makes its much anticipated return with a brand new generation of characters who take on the battle between good and evil. Competing for dominance with their spinning Beyblade tops, the perilous organization of the Dark Nebula is vying for world domination. The only person standing in their way is teenager Gingka, who struggles to find his strength to honour Beyblade and save the world.
Beyblade: Metal Fusion debuted in Japan last April as Metal Fight Beyblade, the first new Beyblade anime series in four years. Takara-Tomy launched the original game franchise in 1999, and sponsored three previous anime series with Hasbro, d-rights, and Nelvana: Bakuten Shoot Beyblade, Bakuten Shoot Beyblade 2002 (Beyblade V-Force), and Bakuten Shoot Beyblade G-Revolution.
Beyblade: Metal Fusion will premiere on America's Cartoon Network on June 26.
