How could the creators of Beyblade do this? Replacing the well-loved originals for these people? Ever since I saw the first 10 minutes of Metal Fight Beyblade (so now they are also selling dangerous beyblades instead of original plastic ones, I think), I cannot watch this season at all. They’ve replaced Tyson, Max, Ray, Kai, Daichi, Chief a.k.a Kenny and Hilary with a TyKai wannabe, Hilary’s ugly stepsister, Burger King, a Street Rat and…some Random kid. ¬_¬

They were better off leaving the series at Season 3. Or…like many people suggested, make the Season 4 cast as the original’s children, makes sense right? Since in the manga, they all settled down and had children. I don’t think the creators of Beyblade were thinking straight when they made the fourth season, wouldn’t it have been better after the third season to continue from there?
I think they would have gone two more seasons with the same voice actors and given up. Still, I’m grateful for just the three, not the fourth. Bring it out again with a new cast just shows that they just want money. They should of just made a whole new anime, it would have saved us all trouble.
Sure I haven’t watched as much as the 10 mins of the video above bu I’m sure other beyblade fans of the past would agree that it’s not as good as the first three seasons. And boy! Do I miss them! I wish I had all the manga books and the full DVD collection to reminisce how good it was, so if anyone knows a link where I can buy them, please tell immediately.
I’m sure if I’m curious to care who is who, I would actually watch the newly dubbed episodes or simply go onto Wikipedia but they tried too hard with the main character, that’s why he looks like Tyson and Kai to me because his appearance and attitude resembles both of them. The Street Rat also gives me a Kai feeling too. I’m not ever going to start on the others especially Burger King or the Random Kid.
So, to all the fans of the old and new season (majority must be old), critics, the Beyblade voice cast, staff and the creator of Beyblade, Takao Aoki (たかお 青木) Season 4 is not worth it.
