posted on by Egan Loo
The Battle Spirits game and anime franchise will air a New Year's special on TV Tokyo and other affiliates on January 6 at 6:30 p.m., followed by a rerun on the BS Japan channel on January 13. The special will star the protagonists of the first Battle Spirits anime and the most recent Battle Spirits anime — Toppa Bashin from Battle Spirits: Shōnen Toppa Bashin and Yukimura Rekka from Battle Spirits Burning Soul.
In addition, the Battle Spirits [BSC22] Revival Booster game cards will go on sale on December 19. This new set will incorporate cards sold during Battle Spirits: Shōnen Toppa Bashin's original airing.
The Battle Spirits anime franchise launched with the 50-episode Battle Spirits: Shōnen Toppa Bashin series on September 7, 2008. The anime adapted Bandai's 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.
The show airs every Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. JST on TV Tokyo. The current season, titled Battle Spirits Burning Soul, premiered in Japan on April 1.
