Power, technique, strategy. Only Bakugan has elements of all sports and games. Reigning from the peak is what we call BakuTech!
Harou Kido, Opening narration

BakuTech! Bakugan (爆TECH! 爆丸, Bakūtekku! Bakugan?) is a Japanese action adventure anime television series and a spin-off of the Bakugan Battle Brawlers series. It is based on the manga series BakuTech! Bakugan.

Major Differences from the Manga

  • In the anime, a lot of main Bakugan replace the roles of other Bakugan in the manga (for example, Mika Laurel takes Mega Nemus' place most of the time).
  • The first half of the anime involves the Shadow Sanjushi instead of the BakuThieves whereas in the manga, it is the other way around.
  • Tatsuma is introduced in the first episode of the anime and appears in every subsequent episode. In the manga, he does not appear for a while.
  • The BakuTech Colisseo chapters were skipped, so Harou Kido was the three-time champion in the anime instead of just two.
  • The Rare Bakugan Hunters do not appear in the anime, but their Guardian Bakugan are often used for target practice in the Bakugan Dojo and in Quilt's Temple.
  • In the manga, Van Falco evolved because Sho used a machine to repair Van Falco after Catol destroys it. In the anime, it naturally evolves after Sho defeats Koh in a brawl.
  • Master Jyou never switches places with Master Shimo in the manga.
  • In the manga, the Shadow Sanjushi get their Sechs Tavanel at the same time as Team Dragon.
  • The anime does not state how Tatsuma acquires his metal cross parts, only hinting that Harou gave them to him, while the manga explains he took a trial to become a BakuTech and got metal cross parts that way.
  • The manga versions of the fights with the Grif brothers' newly evolved Bakugan and with Master Grizz and Master Odore are shorter.
  • Zakuro's possession takes place at the Tavanel cup in the manga.
  • Raichi's dark past is not talked about in the anime.
