posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The official website for the Battle Spirits anime franchise revealed in April that the previously revealed new three-episode anime in the franchise is titled Battle Spirits: Saga Brave. The first episode will premiere online on June 15 on the Battle Spirits franchise's official YouTube channel. JAM Project will perform the show's theme song "Returner: Fukkatsu no Legend," which is previewed in the video below.
The official YouTube channel for the franchise began streaming a promotional video in March for a "new gimmick" in the trading card game in the franchise also titled Saga Brave.
Masaki Watanabe (Battle Spirits: Sword Eyes, Battle Spirits: Heroes) is directing the new anime at Bandai Namco Pictures, and Atsuhiro Tomioka is returning from Battle Spirits: Shōnen Gekiha Dan and Battle Spirits: Brave to write the scripts.
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 eighth and most recent anime series in the franchise, Battle Spirits Double Drive, aired for 51 episodes from April 2016 to March 2017.
