Idaten Jump is an anime that was broadcast in Japan from October 1, 2005, to September 9, 2006. It lasted 52 episodes in its Japanese run. However, only 26 episodes were dubbed into English.
These episodes were released by Hasbro and aired on Cartoon Network in America and YTV in Canada, in hopes of creating a new popular toy line and anime franchise (unfortunately, the marketing failed as Cartoon Network pushed the show to a 5 am time slot). Both networks completed the full 26-episode run. However, no DVDs were ever released of the show in English. Japanese DVDs are exceedingly rare, and due to the show's low popularity in North America, there are slim to no online recordings of the show in English or Japanese.
However, later episodes of the show have been discovered thanks to a fandom in India, where the show regularly airs on the channel Sonic-Nickelodeon. However, these episodes are dubbed in Hindi. Only the first episode of the English dub has appeared online, though there is photographic evidence that some episodes were available on the Hasbro site, despite the show's failure in late 2009.
