Future Card Buddyfight Premieres On Teletoon Next Week

buddyfightkeyart Almost a year ago I wrote about Future Card Buddyfight. To tell you the truth, I wasn’t expecting to ever write about it again. Japanese TCG manufacturer Bushiroad launched the cross-media property globally last year, with the tie-in anime running premieres through Youtube and other VOD venues. If that strategy wasn’t weird enough for a kids merchandise property, Bushiroad has been providing an English dub produced by Calgary’s Bluewater Studios hours after the Japanese premiere. Now the series is heading to Teletoon, according to Zap2it and the channel’s own schedule. Things are set to kick off on Thursday, January 8th at 7AM. It looks like Teletoon will become Buddyfight‘s first broadcast partner outside of Asia. Continue reading

YTV debuts the final seven episodes of Beyblade: Shogun Steel exclusively online

unairedshogunsteel

When Beywarriors: Beyraiderz began airing on YTV, I mentioned that the western-exclusive Beyblade spinoff had replaced the time slot of the latest mainline show, Beyblade: Shogun Steel. YTV’s broadcast of the show ended prematurely at episode nineteen. At the time, I expected the show to simply go on hiatus while Beyraiderz aired as a promotional tie-in for toys hitting the shelves, but it looks like that won’t be the case. YTV has announced that the final seven episodes of the series will only be available to stream through their website. They’ve already posted the first four episodes to watch. Continue reading

Future Card Buddy Fight is dubbed in Calgary, and available to watch for free

Sure, the US gets Space Dandy this weekend, but with Beyraiderz, and Future Card Buddy Fight we can still get into the simuldub thing.

What do you mean you’d rather have Space Dandy?

YTV will premiere B-Daman: Crossfire on September 7th


I was a bit perplexed by some omissions in YTV, and Teletoon’s fall programming highlights this year but didn’t really care enough about the shows to write a post about them. I wasn’t expecting a Canadian rendition of [adult swim]’s Toonami or anything, but seemingly safe bet children’s anime like Digimon: Fusion, B-Daman: Crossfire, and Tenkai Knights were no where to be seen despite pending product and US broadcast launches. It appears that at least one of those is making a debut this side of the border. Internet scheduling giant Zap2it! lists a September 7th broadcast at 1:30PM Eastern by the title of “Battle B-Daman” on YTV. I’m going to assume that the channel will not be airing a 22 minute toy commercial from ten years ago, but rather it’s a mix up for the newest B-Daman series, B-Daman: Crossfire. Crossfire launched in the US on The CW’s Vortexx Saturday morning block on August 17th.

Beyblade: Shogun Steel premieres this Saturday on YTV


As one of the two remaining anime series on YTV, and therefore mainstream Canadian television I guess this is an important thing to note. The next season/series in the Beyblade: Metal ___ reboot launches this Saturday at 11:30AM ET. Rather than a direct followup to Beyblade: Metal Fury, Shogun Steel stars new blader Zyro Hagane with the Metal ___ cast in mentor-ship roles as they’ve been aged up. It’s important to note that this is the final season of the modern Beyblade reboot to air in Japan, but don’t worry as we know Nelvana’s got more original spinoffs on the way. Continue reading

Here’s some Tenkai Knights footage

This entire franchise has kind of snuck up on me. I honestly hadn’t heard of Tenkai Knights before writing up this article a few weeks back, and now the show is just days away from a broadcast premiere in the United States. The Canada-Japan co-production will launch on Cartoon Network sometime on August 24th. In support of that impending launch the franchise’s official Youtube channel uploaded our first real look:

Take a sneak peek at the Canadian dubbed Little Battlers eXperience

keyart_LBXAll I write about is kids shows … Here’s one that has been in the works for a while. Little Battlers eXperience, known in Japan as Danball Senki (literally, “The Cardboard Troopers”) dates back to 2008 when well known games company Level-5 announced the original action RPG on PSP. It wasn’t until June 2011 that said PSP game actually hit store shelves in Japan, but it didn’t come alone. Level-5 had worked with a variety of partners, including Bandai, Shogakukan, and TV Tokyo to ensure the game would launch alongside model kits, manga, and a TV anime by OLM. After the series proved itself in its native land, Dentsu Entertainment USA picked up the show later that year with interests in releasing it in North America, Europe, and other markets. Rather than reusing the dub produced for Asian markets, like what happened to Level-5’s Inazuma Eleven, Dentsu Entertainment USA hired Calgary’s own Blue Water Studios to adapt 78 episodes of the series.

Little Battlers eXperience (LBX) is based on a highly successful animation, toy, videogame, and manga franchise in Japan known as “Danball Senki.” In this popular animation series, children in the year 2050 have miniature LBX robots, which they build, customize and play in robot battles.
