posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
Animanga Plus released the first nine English-dubbed episodes of the B-Daman Fireblast (Cross Fight B-Daman eS) TV anime in the iTunes store on March 21, the Google Play store on April 14, and the Amazon app store on April 15. The first episode is available for free download with the B-Daman Fireblast app, and the later episodes are available for purchase together within the app for US$2.29 on iTunes and US$1.99 on Google Play and Amazon.
The app notes that episodes 10-18 of the anime are "coming soon."
The anime takes place in "Crest Land," where the mysterious "B-Crystal" has started to go berserk. The main protagonist Kamon Godai lives in the south area of Crest Land, and is an energetic boy who loves B-Daman. However, he lost his all past memories of B-Daman and his family, except for his big sister Aona who lives with him. One day, Kamon meets Galvan, a B-Daman at his local B-Daman shop, "B-Junk," and he finds Galvan strangely familiar. Galvan becomes his partner, and he returns to the B-Daman battles once again.
The 26-episode anime premiered in Japan in October 2012. The run-time for each episode in the series is 15 minutes.
The original B-Daman game sold over 80 million units in 30 regions worldwide in its lifespan. In 2004, Hasbro, Fox Entertainment Group, and Atlus USA brought the toys, anime, and games (respectively) to the United States. The B-Legend! Battle Bedaman series aired on Cartoon Network, Toon Disney, and G4. The series also aired in at least 10 other countries around the world, including the United Kingdom, Canada, India, Germany, Ecuador, and the Philippines.
