Little Battlers eXperience/Danbōru Senki Anime Offered in U.S.

Dentsu anime based on mini robot RPG by Level 5 (DQ VIII, Layton, Inazuma 11, Gundam AGE)

Dentsu Entertainment USA announced on Monday that it is bringing the Little Battlers eXperience (Danbōru Senki) television anime series to the United States.

The anime from the studio OLM (Pokémon, Deltora Quest) adapts a "near-future, plastic-model-building role-playing game" from Level 5 (Dragon Quest VIII, Professor Layton, Inazuma Eleven, Mobile Suit Gundam AGE). The player customizes and controls miniature robots called LBX (Little Battler eXperience) as they battle it out in dioramas built from reinforced cardboard. The anime version premiered on TV Tokyo last March.

Level 5 had filed a "Little Battlers eXperience" trademark for videogame, animation, plastic models, comic books, and other related merchandise in the United States on July 21. The toy conglomerate Bandai and the publishers Shogakukan and Media Factory are also involved in the franchise.
