Combining Crud & Mediocrity equals Success apparently., 21 December 2009
Author: Chris Poi from Toronto, Canada

This is one of those times when I loath being an uncle because I get to stubble across what is considered gems to the youth of today. I feel like this genre of anime is deeply reaching out by mixing/matching past ideas from shows that were cancelled (for good reasons) to create something that might sell if only for a little while. That is what this show is based off of and it's really bad, but hell the kids love it. I can only wonder the agony I must've put the adults through when I was watching Pokemon back in the late 90s.

Basically if you list the shows before this one and mix them up in some sort of combination you'll receive this show. Pokemon(not cancelled), Digimon, Bayblade, Battle B-Daman, Medabots, Chaotic(not cancelled), then Cardcaptors, and Yu-Gi-Oh!. Now pour those shows into a barrel, toss it down the cliff of unoriginal-shame and behold Bakugan at the bottom.

I'm now seeing advertisements and merchandise of this franchise everywhere. I don't understand it because even for the shows I watched as a youth had decent writing and character development. I can say that the toys are quite unique and I was amused by the way each toy transformed from spheres (& now they have other shapes) into another form. Aside from that the show does feel like it compiled the interests that got people to watch the other cartoons into this on vessel and it's doing great.

It does have poor writing and the characters are bland, but what can you expect from a youth show. It does feel repetitive from the start if you've seen the shows I listed, but if you're a kid and haven't seen them then you'll enjoy this show. No doubt if they had re-runs of the cancelled shows, the kids would may enjoy those more then again they were cancelled for a reason. As much as I find this show to be just as bad and should be cancelled, I can't deny the amazing success it has generated for itself. I feel sad for the kids, but they don't so I guess we should let them enjoy this.
