Heroes: Legend of the Battle Disks gets unleashed on Tubi TV


Heroes: Legend of the Battle Disks is one of those properties that seem primed for the big time, but just never really got a shot at success. The anime co-production between Spain’s Magic Box Toys and Japan’s Asahi Productions was announced way back in 2013 with the ambition of being a massive multi-hundred million dollar property. While that never really came to pass, thanks to Marvista Entertainment, you can finally see the animated series inspired by a short lived line of collectible/battling figures.

All 26 episodes of the series began streaming for free in the United States on Tubi TV earlier this week. The English adaptation was produced in Los Angeles by Bang Zoom Entertainment and stars Darrel Guilbeau, Dorothy Fahn, Kira Buckland, Sean Chiplock and Vic Mignogna. Heroes: Legend of the Battle Disks was directed by Masahiro Hosoda, who’s worked on Dragon Ball Z, Digimon Fusion and Yu-Gi-Oh! VRAINS. The show’s script was written by Junki Takegami.

In order to resurrect an ancient guardian named Red Dragon, Vulkay and a handful of other cadets are training at the Academy to become HEROES–whose sole purpose is to hunt down and collect Battle Disks. The Battle Disks, which allow HEROES to create and summon monsters to aid them in battle, are fabled to be pieces of Red Dragon’s spirit. Vulkay and his friends must use monsters to locate every Battle Disk scattered across Planet Aernia, as they’ll need Red Dragon’s help to fight against the dark forces that are gathering to destroy the world.

Marvista Entertainment originally acquired distribution rights to the property back in 2014, but only managed to land a streaming deal with Netflix in South America and a few minor overseas television partners. This is the first time the series has been available in the United States.
