The April issue of Shogakukan‘s Coro Coro Comics magazine revealed more details on Monday for the new anime in the Beyblade franchise. The new show is titled Beyblade Burst Dynamite Battle (or Beyblade Burst DB), and it will premiere on April 2 on the Coro Coro YouTube channel and Takara Tomy‘s YouTube channel.
The story centers on Bell Daikokuten (voiced by Mutsumi Tamura), the leader of the Bey graveyard “Makai no Mon.” Bell, who holds Dynamite Belial, declares war on Bladers across the world. The anime will feature “legendary Bladers.”
