Anime premieres globally this year

The Beyblade franchise's English YouTube channel began streaming the English opening video for the television anime of Takara Tomy's Beyblade X project on Saturday. The video features the opening theme song "Prove" by the Japanese rock band ONE OK ROCK.

The Beyblade X anime premiered in Japan on TV Tokyo and its affiliates on October 6. It was announced for a global premiere in summer 2024.

The anime stars Sōma Saitō as X Kurosu, Shūichirō Umeda as Bird Kazami, and Ruriko Noguchi as Multi Nanairo.

Beyblade series veteran Katsuhito Akiyama is credited as chief director for the anime, while Sotsu Terada (Beyblade Burst Turbo, Beyblade Burst GT episode director) is directing the anime at OLM. Hikaru Muno (High Card) is credited for original series concept and scenario assistance, while Kazuho Hyodo (ReLIFE, Kiratto Pri☆Chan, TONIKAWA: Over The Moon For You) is in charge of the series scripts. Posuka Demizu (The Promised Neverland) drafted the original character designs, while Yoshihiro Nagamori (Beyblade: V-Force, Beyblade: Metal Fusion, Beyblade: Shogun Steel) is adapting those character designs for animation.

Takara Tomy announced the Beyblade X project in March 2023. Takara Tomy describes the project as the "4th generation," after the original 1999 Beyblade (Bakuten Shoot Beyblade), 2008's Beyblade: Metal Fusion (Metal Fight Beyblade), and 2015's Beyblade Burst.

Homura Kawamoto (Kakegurui), Hikaru Muno (High Card), and Posuka Demizu (The Promised Neverland) launched the Beyblade X manga in Shogakukan's Monthly Coro Coro Comics magazine in June 2023. Kawamoto and his younger brother Muno are credited with the original story, and Demizu is drawing the manga.

The manga's story centers on a young boy who aims to be a professional Beyblade player. He aims to get to X Tower, where professional Beyblade players gather. The manga introduced new gears and abilities in playing Beyblade. Viz Media licensed the manga.

Beyblade Burst QuadStrike, the seventh and latest season of the Beyblade Burst anime series, premiered on Disney XD in April 2023 and on Hulu that May in the U.S. Episodes streamed on YouTube following the U.S. premieres. The anime also aired on the company's additional regional broadcast partners. The show had 26 22-minute episodes.
