N/A Bashin Episode 02

The first episode of the anime series Battle Spirits Shounen Toppa Bashin.

Toppa Bashin, who received a pendent with a red stone from his missing father, goes to meet the Battle Spirits champion J Sawaragi for a match.


A Battle Spirits tournament is being held between the previous champion, J Sawaragi, and a mysterious masked girl, Suiren. When Toppa Bashin wakes up, he rushes to watch it on TV. Although Suiren has the upper hand, he believes J will win. Bashin is correct, as J turns the match around and keeps his title as champion.

When Bashin’s mother, Hayami, who worked the night shift as a taxi driver comes home, she finds Bashin sleeping. She wakes him up, and he hurries to get ready for school. Hayami reminds him to take the pendant that his father left behind for him. As he leaves, after stopping Bashin’s pet mouse Aibou from following him, she muses to herself that Bashin is just like her father.

While heading to school, Bashin meets with his friend, whom he calls Meganeko. He attempts to help her get ready faster by locking her dog inside, and they run off to class, barely making it in time.

Bashin sleeps in class, dreaming that he’s praised by his teacher, Card Sensei, and his classmates for his Battle Spirits skill. However, Card Sensei wakes him up, and punishes Bashin by making him stay after to clean the classroom. Meganeko volunteers to help him, and Bashin leaves to take out the trash. On the way, he finds a group of kids playing Battle Spirits. One boy throws several of his cards on the floor, and they leave to head to the Battle Spirits Center.

There, Bashin also meets with Striker, who is in his year at school, but another class. They go together to take out the trash and talk. Bashin recognizes Striker as a soccer star, and Striker knows Bashin as a serious Battle Spirits enthusiast. They discuss which is a better hobby, and Striker gives Bashin the cards that were left of the floor, three copies of the green master rare, Gowsilvia.

After this, Bashin leaves to head to the Battle Spirits Center. The worker, called Baito-kun, informs Bashin that he just missed J. Wanting to see him, and ask him about the match from earlier, Bashin searches after him. It was then when Aibou, who wore a stone like Bashin’s pendant on his collar, ran in front of a car when trying to find Bashin, as the stone had reacted.

Bashin jumped in to save Aibou, and the car’s driver noticed him and stopped. Although safe, Bashin’s cards were scattered on the floor. While he tried to pick them up, a cat jumped out of the car and started to chase after Aibou. The cat was Okyou, J’s pet, and J stepped out to stop her.

Excited to see J, Bashin challenged him to a battle. J was uninterested, and found Bashin rude. However, Okyou began to tell him something. Bashin, surprised that J was trying to talk to his cat, wondered if J had no friends. He told J that they could be friends. J decided that he would battle Bashin.

For their battle, J opened the gate, taking Bashin to a strange arena in the sky. They began to battle using real spirits. Bashin took the advantage from the start, and was excited to summon Gowsilvia. It was easily defeated, however. Bashin quickly realized that this would be harder than he thought.
