U.S.'s Cartoon Network to Launch Beyblade: Metal Fusion

posted on 2010-04-21 23:24 EDT
Bakugan, Pokémon anime to return in 2010-2011 season

See people, anime on tv isn’t dead. We’re getting another new show. I say thumbs up and props are at hand.

B) :wink:

Considering that Nelavan is co-producing Metal Fight/Metal Fusion, I do hope that the dub will be pretty much the same thing as the Japanese version in terms of names, story, music, etc. as the show is very good and is already my favorite of all of the Beyblade animes (G-Revolution used to be my favorite). It would be cool if Nelvana dubs this show uncut and then just edits for time restraints on North American television.

Also, I would love to see Nelavan team up with an anime distributor, like maybe Sentai, and give this show an uncut & dual-audio DVD release over here. I would definitely buy it!

I wonder how US is going to act when they found out, that all the old bladers retire…

Beyblade: Metal Fusion to Premiere in U.S. on June 26

Cartoon Network to run 51 manga/game-based episodes on Saturday mornings

56 episode!!! BUt there are only 14 episode fansub!!! WHAT THE HELL !!!

Oh boy the greatest Saturday morning ‘worth getting up early for’ show ever.

ABC Family was my savior for 7AM-8AM.
I can also thank Toon Disney for bringing it back.

3 seasons with the same beybladers was a great enough run. Who cares for the change. It’s time to move on. Digimon Data Squad is another good example.

I never watch Digimon Data Squad, I heard it was good but after season 4 i quite watching. Wait an min… Which season was Data Squad?

Well, to bring this back to the top, I did see a few scenes of the English dub of Metal Fight, a.k.a. Metal Fusion, and I have to say that it’s not bad at all. I can definitely see it improve as the show goes on, but there are some thigns I just have to nitpick on:

  1. Benkei’s voice is too much of a generic “big tough guy” voice, and considering how he’s a main character it might be annoying to hear that voice in the long haul. There are some other performances like Benkei’s that aren’t that great, but Benkei’s is the worst offender.
  2. Nelvana changed the name of beyblade Mad Cancer’s name to Mad Gasher… Is Nelvana really worried that parents might think that they’re kids are talking about the wrong “cancer”?
  3. Odd pronounciations of names:
    -Kyoya pronounces his beyblade’s name, Leone, “Lee-Own” instead of the more natural sounding “Lee-O-Ne” that the original Japanese version uses
    -Main character Ginga Hagane’s name is utterly butchered… Instead of how it looks, the dub instead either pronounces it “Jing-Ka” or “Jin-Ga”. How could they mess up “Gin-Ga”? And that’s the main character’s name, so you keep hearing it over and over like that.

But there are good points:
-The opening theme is just a shortened version of the original Japanese theme, just with English lyrics all their own. True, the lyrics aren’t all that great, but it’s nice to hear the same rough beat… Of course, Martin Kucaj, who did the dub music for original Beyblade trilogy, wrote the original Japanese theme, so of course they’d use the same basic song.
-On the same token, all of the original music is kept intact. Of course, Neil Perfitt, a Nelvana employee, did all of the music himself, so why change it?
-Other than Mad Cancer becoming Mad Gasher and Ginga’s name possibly being spelt differently due to the odd pronounciation, none of the names have been changed! Yay!
-The eyecatches are actually kept in the show! How many animes televised in North America actually keep their eyecatches? Not many usually, outside of FUNimation Channel and Anime Network.

Now hopefully Nelvana is having the show dubbed uncut and then just they just edit for time… That way it could very well be possible to have uncut, dual-audio DVDs for this show!

For anyone wanting to watch Beyblade: Metal Fusion, it will premiere:

Saturday, June 26, 2010
7:30am ET/6:30am CT

They’re trying to mess me up!

Second episode is Sunday, June 27!
7:30am ET/6:30am CT

So, I’ve never seen any of the others, however, I caught the first episode of Beyblade: Metal Fusion this morning and kinda half watched it.

It’s very reminiscent of all the other “battle” anime out that I’ve seen, so much so, if it wasn’t for the fact that I was lazy and busy, I would have changed the channel.

Crunchyroll Adds a Bunch of “Beyblade” Anime to Catalog

December 01, 2015 6:30pm CST
First season and more coming to US and Canada dubbed

Metal Masters is Season 2 and Metal Fury is season 3 of the 2K10 series. I wonder why they didn’t pick up Metal Fusion (Season 1). Perhaps upcoming at a future time.

I’m happy to see the Tyson era of Beyblade return. I had held out hope Nicktoons would’ve picked up the original 2K seasons but Crunchyroll got to it first. Its just as well.
