Beyblade: Shogun Steel,[1] known in Japan as Metal Fight Beyblade Zero-G (メタルファイトベイブレード ZERO-G Metaru Faito Beiburēdo ZERO-G?) is a Japanese manga by Takafumi Adachi based on Takara Tomy's spinning top toy line. It is also an anime that aired on TV Tokyo beginning April 8, 2012 and Cartoon Network starting in mid-August 2013. Shogun Steel is the seventh in the line of Beyblade shows, following the trilogy of shows started with Beyblade: Metal Fusion. Whereas the previous shows focused on metal parts, the line of Beyblades in Shogun Steel will focus on zero gravity battles with the advent of a new stadium system.[2]

Plot[edit]

Seven years have passed since the God of Destruction met his end at the hands of a Legendary Blader. A new era of Beyblade has begun, bringing with it new Blades. When Zero Kurogane witnessed the final battle with the lord of destruction years ago, a fire began to burn within him to push forward to a new future. While Zero is the champion in his hometown, he wants to test himself and seeks out greater opponents, heading to Metal Bey City, Gingka's hometown. When Zero arrives and discovers that Gingka is nowhere to be found, he learns that bladers from all over the world have come to test themselves against the Cyclone Bey stadium. Wanting to push his skills forward, Zero takes part in the new era of Beyblade, testing his might against the Cyclone stadiums.
