Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Only the first series and second are decent

It was a short lived toy fad that overshadowed a decent anime. It was pretty good in the first series and the second series New Vestroya was ok but after the Gundalian Invaders series the anime got to be nothing but a cash grab as the series flopped in Japan and only caught on in the America's and parts of Europe (exact opposite of Yo-Kai Watch where it flopped here and is huge in Japan). It's a show about alien animals and mythical creatures that can only be in the form of a ball on Earth and can only be their true form by kids using "Gate Cards" that makes the Bakugan come out of the marble ball status and do battles. It's like a cross between Transformers (alien robots), Pokemon (battling monsters) and Yu-Gi-Oh (elements and cards). The first season is the only one that is actually good but I wouldn't bother with anything past New Vestroya...

Too much consumerism
