The July issue of Shogakukan's Monthly Coro Coro Comics magazine is revealing on Monday that Hiro Morita will launch the Beyblade Burst manga in the magazine's August issue, which ships on July 15.
The announcement for the series states: "You are the lead role!! Come on, let's start!!"
Morita previously launched the four-volume Kiriwo Terrible manga in Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine in March 2014, and Shogakukan published the fourth volume in January.
Takara Tomy's Beyblade line of toys inspired a manga series in 2000-2003, and Viz Media released the 14-volume series in North America in 2004-2006. The manga inspired three television anime series (Beyblade, Beyblade: V-Force, and Beyblade G Revolution) between 2001-2003, and the Beyblade the Movie: Fierce Battle film in 2002. A spinoff manga, Metal Fight Beyblade, has inspired the Beyblade: Metal Fusion, Beyblade: Metal Masters, Beyblade: Metal Fury, and Beyblade: Shogun Steel television anime series, as well as the Metal Fight Beyblade VS Taiyō Shakunetsu no Shinryakusha film.
Nelvana has localized the seven television anime series for North America, and the company has also produced the Beywheelz and Beywarriors: Beyraiderz Western-exclusive animated spinoff series.
Paramount Pictures has acquired rights to craete a live-action film based on the franchise.
