The day playing cards fell from the sky, Dan’s life changed forever. Join the Bakugan Battle Brawlers in this intense graphic novel based on the hit anime series.

It’s Raining Cards

It began when, all around the world, cards fell from the sky like rain. Dan and his online friends used these cards to create a game called Bakugan. Then they discovered the hidden power contained within the cards. Each one holds its own battling beast—looming monsters with extraordinary fighting skills. In battle, when the players throw down their cards, their beast appears, ready to face head-to-head combat.

A Battle in the Park

The afternoon when Dan expects to battle a shrimpy kid called Akira, he’s in for a big surprise—and I mean big! Instead of battling Akira, he must face Shuji, Akira’s tall, beefy older brother. At first, Dan is intimidated. But the moment the battle begins, he finds his inner strength. And after four intense rounds, Dan walks away with a victory.


The Rematch and the Vision

The next day, Shuji challenges Dan to a rematch. Confident with his skills, Dan accepts the challenge. But during the battle, something strange happens—he has a vision of another dimension. A Bakugan appears on the battlefield, and Dan can’t believe his ears: the Bakugan are talking! When the vision disappears, Dan thinks he’s crazy. There’s no such thing as a talking Bakugan.


The Revelation

Later at home, Dan logs onto the Bakugan website, and realizes that he’s not the only person hearing voices. And he learns that Bakugan is more than just a game. But what he doesn’t know is that the Bakugan exist in an alternate universe called Vestroia. And while he battles, evil forces are at work.


The Bottom Line

This full-color graphic novel has vibrant pictures[/kwlink] that could tell the story without the dialogue. The characters have strong personalities and the battle scenes are intense. At only ninety-five pages, Bakugan Battle Brawlers: The Battle Begins! is a quick read. But don’t worry, there’s more to come in this action-packed series.

    Well I'm a pretty positive person, for the most part, but there are still some things I just don't like. HATE, even. Because, as we all are, I'm human!! So without any further ado, Ima get into the things I hate: -bullies! I hate em! They are so disrespectful! I mean, what if YOU were on the receiving end? ​-liars! Most of all, there is nothing! And by nothing, I mean NOTHING I hate more than a person who lies! I actually have a much bigger tolerance for jerks than liars bc at least they may be straight with you! ​-ppl on this site who, or any Internet site, who send you a request and you message them, but THEY DONT EVEN TALK TO YOU! I mean, why the HELL did you add me?! I feel like you should send me a request if you actually wanna be one, not just to increase your friends list, in which case, you are undesirable and I delete you! SIMPLE! Just an FYI... ​-OH! aaaand! I think that's really it! I think I just about covered what I hate. HBU???
