The original Bladebreakers are back in Beyblade Rising

It’s easy to forget the original Beyblade cast with all the spinoffs and reboots of the franchise that have happened. But don’t worry, older fans, the Bladebreakers are back in a new manga series called Bakuten Shoot Beyblade Rising. Written by the original author Takao Aoki, the series reunites Tyson, Kai, Max, Rai and Kenny in new adventures. The manga began last summer and is serialized every four months in CoroCoro Aniki in Japan.

The latest chapter sees the ultimate rival of the first Beyblade anime series, Tala, rampage through the world’s best Beybladers. Can his former teammate Kai put a stop to his madness?

Bakuten Shoot Beyblade Rising is just one of the ways toy manufacturer Takara Tomy is celebrating the 15th Anniversary of Beyblade’s anime debut. The company launched a new line of Beyblade Burst tops fashioned in the style of the original ones used by the Bladebreakers. Back in January, the company even launched its own Beyblade Bar! Sanrio, the company behind Hello Kitty, even took to redesigning Tyson to make im a little cuter. Takara Tomy is currently conducting a survey in CoroCoro Aniki to see which first generation Beyblade they’d like to see brought into the Burst format next. C’mon Cyber Dragoon!

The original Beyblade manga ran for 14 volumes in montly CoroCoro Comic between 2000 and 2004. The series inspired a 154-episode anime adaptation and a theatrical film by Madhouse and Nippon Animation. The Beyblade franchise has since been rebooted twice with Beyblade: Metal Fusion and mostly recently with the ongoing Beyblade Burst. The former also served as the basis for the BeyWheelz spinoff trilogy of series.

A lot of Beyblade’s contemporaries, like Digimon and Yu-Gi-Oh!, have seen relaunches aimed at the older fans. Would you like to see Bakuten Shoot Beyblade Rising be more than just a manga? Leave a comment down below!
