Beywheelz is an anime mini-series based on the Hasbro toyline, BeyWheelz. It was commissioned by Nelvana and is produced by Synergy SP and d-rights.

The series does not follow the Metal Saga and instead takes place in a completely different universe where Bladers are called Wheelers and use BeyWheelz, fly-wheel versions of existing Beyblades.

It is speculated that the series creation was due to the fact that episodes of Beyblade: Metal Fury were cut down to thirteen minutes in Japan beginning with its 27th episode, The Lion Going Into The Wilderness in order to share its timeslot with Cross Fight B-Daman (which aired as B-Daman Crossfire in the US). With this as a backdrop, all international versions of Metal Fury consist of 39 thirty-minute episodes with BeyWheelz as an extra 13-episodes to finish off the series with 52 episodes.

It premiered on August 11, 2012 on Cartoon Network at 9:00 AM with its first two episodes, New Generation and The Dominators Attack!.

Season 1 consisted of 13 episodes. It began with its first episode, New Generation which premiered on August 11, 2012 and ended with the last episode, A New World which aired on October 6, 2022.

Season 2 (Beyraiderz)

Beywheelz was originally confirmed for another season of thirteen episodes to fill the gap created by the Beyblade: Shogun Steel episodes. While for a few months there was a lot of speculation over the season being cancelled, due to none of the announced series names mentioning Beywheelz, on October 2nd, 2013 a promotional picture surfaced, featuring the protagonist Sho Tenma. Thereby Beyraiderz was confirmed as the second Beywheelz season.

Development

The Beywheelz series was unveiled at Hasbro's place at the 2012 Toy Fair as a poster of concept art. Information was issued at the event, including that a BeyWheelz toyline would exist, and that this anime would last for thirteen episodes, to fill in for the 13 episodes that were missing from the Beyblade: Metal Fury season.

Beywheelz aired before Metal Fury started and is considered episodes 142-154[1] of the Metal Saga in the English dub. The series features new characters and is unrelated to the previous anime. Various characters pay much resemblance to Metal Saga characters, such as Yuki Mizusawa, Benkei Hanawa, and Reiji Mizuchi.
