Note added

I added a note explaining the origin of the name. Though its tempting to associate the entire 2000-2004 period with "Bakuten Shoot Beyblade", officially it doesn't really start until 2001 with the release of the anime, which took the name of the manga it was based on. Different parts of the franchise had different names. I added a note to acknowledge this.

I'm note sure how any of my recent additions to the wikia are going, I'm trying to explain the early period of Beyblade to the best of my abilities. One-Winged Hawk (talk) 20:53, February 6, 2018 (UTC)

I will also note that there are some things that even that Japanese fans aren't 100% clear on as a lot of the them were less then 10 years old when the franchise of Beyblade first appeared. The Japanese fandom consisted of the players (children normally elementary school level), their parents (who accomplied their children to tournaments) and the doujin groups... Who weren't really interested in the game ness. as most of them based on the information I had been given during this period are teenage girls.
This lead to some problematic coverage during the period on some aspects of Beyblade... The adults tended to focus on the toys side, the kids didn't have the ability to write up on Beyblades... The doujins just did art and fanfiction... If not for the fact I was around myself as a fan, I would not know what I do know. I was a complete nerd in 2002-2004 while the anime was running in English. I rarely see overseas fans acknowledge the 1999 period let along fully understand the situation in the 2000 period.
Even then, there are parts post 2001, not even carrying "Bakuten Shoot Beyblade" as they have nothing to do with the manga or anime. It can be confusing even if you understand the situation. There are parts even I don't know as I mostly know things related to the "Bakuten Shoot Beyblade" name. :-? One-Winged Hawk (talk) 21:04, February 6, 2018 (UTC)
