"In the early 2000s the high octane action of Beyblades and the epic clashes of Zoids were all the rage. It was only natural that the immense popularity of these series spawned countless copycat anime. Most of these copycats were merely a cheap imitation, barely watchable. However there was one little known series that sought to be something more, something greater. That anime series was Crush Gear Turbo."
