Posuka Demizu (The Promised Neverland) lends their artistic talent to create the original character designs, with Yoshihiro Nagamori (Beyblade: V-Force, Beyblade: Metal Fusion, Beyblade: Shogun Steel) adapting these designs for animation.

The Beyblade X project, announced by Takara Tomy in March, heralds the “4th generation” of Beyblade adventures, following the original 1999 Beyblade (Bakuten Shoot Beyblade), 2008’s Beyblade: Metal Fusion (Metal Fight Beyblade), and 2015’s Beyblade Burst.

The manga adaptation of Beyblade X, brought to life by the creative team of Homura Kawamoto (Kakegurui), Hikaru Muno (High Card), and Posuka Demizu (The Promised Neverland), premiered in Shogakukan’s Monthly Coro Coro Comics magazine on June 15. The manga’s narrative revolves around a young aspiring Beyblade player striving to reach the prestigious X Tower, where professional Beyblade players converge.
