The official website of the Beyblade Burst God television anime series revealed a new promotional video, as well as the cast, staff, and April 3 premiere for the anime on Wednesday.


New cast members are as follows:

The returning cast includes:

Kentaro Yamaguchi (Inazuma Eleven episode director) is taking over for Katsuhito Akiyama as director at OLM, though Akiyama will still serve as chief director. Hideki Sonoda and Toshiaki Ōhashi are returning from Beyblade Burst for series composition and character design, respectively. Hiroki Matsuoka is the sound effects director, and Zain Effendi is composing the music.

Ken'ichi Kitagawa is performing the opening theme song "Evolution Burst!" and Senor Anami is performing the ending theme song "Beysa Size."

Beyblade Burst premiered in Japan last April and is ongoing.

The anime began airing on Canada's Teletoon channel on September 10, and then premiered on Disney XD on December 19. Daisuki began streaming the series with English subtitles later in December.

Production company d-rights describes the show:

Beyblades are the most popular battle tops in the world. Boys around the globe put their hearts and souls into fierce Beyblade battles.

Valt Aoi is a fifth-grade elementary school student who is crazy about Beyblade. Valt's best friend since childhood, Shu Kurenai, is hailed as a Beyblade prodigy and has already been named as one of the National Beyblade Tournament's Final Four. Inspired by Shu's accomplishments, Valt sets his sights on reaching this year's national tournament.

But to get to the big leagues, he must first emerge victorious from the district tournament––no easy feat, given the tough opponents standing in his way.

Determined to win, Valt aims to make it to the championship, where he hopes to battle Shu and move on to the national tournament. As he battles, Valt broadens his circle of friends and reaches new heights. Without even realizing it, he has begun to dream of becoming the best Blader in the world.

Toy company Hasbro and d-rights' U.S. subsidiary Sunrights announced plans in February 2016 to launch the Beyblade Burst toys and anime outside of Japan. Hasbro began distributing the toys in the United States 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.
