Sweet. I feel as though I can actually take this series more seriously. It was offsetting watching MF:beyblade in subs...since I grew up on the original dubbed trilogy. I gave the Metal Fusion series a chance, but the characters were to "cutesy" for me. And....Ginga's voices actors sucks. Really sorry to those who found his actor appealing, but it was sooo annoying. Especially when he squealed...even Dan Kuso's "hype dude slang" was better than this foolishness. Never have I watched a series LA or animated, and was irked so much by the main character. Also, the camera work felt so...digital? Felt like I was watching moving (panes?) The show just felt so choppy compared to the original japanese version. Also, I didn't like the supernatural vibe to the show. I know GRevolution incoroporated some of that in the finale, but the originals still felt more "grounded"
That all being said these charactes look cooler, and hopefully it'll maintain the hardcore vibe from the dubbed original series(ya, i'm aware the org.trilogy was reworked to appeal to western audiences).
Still curious about the supposed second series...to air before Zero-G in the west.
