Let's go over the best anime recommendations for Beyblade Burst fans to watch after they finish the series, ranked by your votes. On the surface, Beyblade Burst may seem like a silly show about kids fighting with tops. However, Beyblade Burst never lets its toy-ish structure get in the way of fun. It knows how to stage surprisingly entertaining battles with its dazzling tops, and create compelling stories about the kids who compete with them. 

If you love watching Beyblade Burst and want more of the same, you can't go wrong with shows like Pokémon Sun and Moon or Digimon Adventure. Other anime like Beyblade Burst pack the same punch, but in a completely different way. Bakugan Battle Brawlers is another good anime similar to Beyblade Burst - the series follows Dan Kuso and his friends as they play the game of Bakugan to save their dimension.

Bakugan Battle Brawlers feels inspired by the toy-ish aspect of Beyblade Burst and the larger-than-life battles of Yu-Gi-Oh! It's about a group of kids that discover these magical objects called Bakugan and use them to play a game. They also use them to save the Earth from interdimensional evil. It's younger-skewing series for sure, but one that's still fun to watch

Yu-Gi-Oh!, like Beyblade Burst, may seem like an anime that only cares about selling toys, but it's actually something more. The trading cards the show is centered around are just a medium to depict amazing strategic battles from Yugi Mutou and the ancient Egyptian spirit that resides within him. It's darker than Beyblade Burst, but nothing on a TV-MA level. Think Naruto-like content. The characters on Yu-Gi-Oh! are compelling, and the Duel Monster game itself is really cool to watch.

While Digimon may appear to be similar to Pokémon, the two are really nothing alike. Digimon is easily more dramatic and story-driven. The original series followed a great cast of kids landing on a strange island and befriending the digital monsters known as Digimon, in order to find their way home. What's remarkable is that despite so many new iterations of the show, Digimon never lost track of its original cast. The recent films have them grown up and dealing with new threats from the digital world. If you're looking for a more story-driven alternative to Beyblade Burst, Digimon is your show.

How do you make a politically-driven franchise like Mobile Suit Gundam more kid-friendly? By focusing on the toys all the otaku love, of course. Gundam Build Fighters is like if someone made a show about the Gundam figurines you would build for fun. It captures the spirit of bashing your figurines together as a child and the wondrous stories you would make for them. The young stars of the show, Sei Iori and Reiji, harkens back to play dates you would have with your childhood friend.
