Battle B-Daman or Battle B''Daman is an anime and manga series by Eiji Inuki that first aired in January 2004 in Japan, replacing Beyblade in its timeslot. It premiered in the United States on April 2005. Like its predecessor, it is themed around an enhanced version of a children''s schoolyard game - whereas Beyblade was based around spinning tops, Battle B-Daman is a dramatized version of marbles. It is the first show of the B-Daman series to be dubbed in English. In Japan, it airs on TV Tokyo. In the United States, it once aired on ABC Family and Toon Disney''s JETIX block. At one point, it aired on the Cartoon Network, as well as G4 in the USA, but on the latter was replaced by G.I. Joe Sigma 6 soon after. In Canada, it airs on YTV, in which on February 2007, the Second Season (entitled Battle B Daman: Fire Spirits) commenced with strangely a completely new voice cast, and what some have called inferior dubing from the first season, the French dub of the show airs on Télétoon.
