Anime[edit]

On September 4, 2012 Japanese book publisher Shueisha announced the franchise would receive an anime television adaptation.[2] The series, produced by SynergySP, premiered on TV Tokyo on January 13, 2013 at 8:44 a.m.[5] It ran for thirty-eight 11-minute episodes in a half hour block shared with B-Daman Fireblast, which both concluded on September 29, 2013. Similar to SynergySP's Beyblade: Shogun Steel, Beast Saga's internet streaming and international versions were released as twenty-six 22-minute episodes.[6] Two 11-minute episodes were merged into a 22-minute one and included the addition of seven unreleased episodes, which were previously announced as a second season.[7][8]

In 2014, voice actress Erin Fitzgerald listed Beast Saga on her resume.[9] An English version of the show premiered on Toonami Asia on April 19, 2015.[10]
