I always favored Yugioh and it's actually my favorite anime. My childhood toys were BayBlade, Bakugan and Pokémon, Who else felt nostalgic seeing the old Beyblade theme? They are both distinct. Digimon started out there as tamagotchi style toys and games, before the anime as well as the Pokemon games were also before the anime. Most of these anime weren't even made to anime toys for sale. The creators just wanted to make a story, that just happened, to be based on something that could be made into toys. Beyblade and Yu-Gi-Oh were manga first and manga aren't made to sell other products. In Japan anime are often created for the purpose of promoting the original manga. Always like Digimon over pokemon... Hit had a story and not only random episodes that kinda goes nowhere like pokemon. My sister enjoyed Transformers when she was younger. I don't like this anime that much. Dull and overrated. What is your favorite anime toy ?
