Idaten Jump is an anime that was broadcast in Japan from October 1st, 2005, to September 9th, 2006. It lasted 52 episodes in its Japanese run.

Animax Asia Dub[edit | edit source]

An uncut English dub of the anime aired on Animax Asia. The same dub later aired on Nick India.

U.S. Dub[edit | edit source]

Only 26 episodes were dubbed into English in the U.S. 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. And due to the show's low popularity in North America, there are only three recordings of the show in English.

Discoveries[edit | edit source]

Only four episodes and a fragment of the English dub have appeared online thus far. However, there is photographic evidence that a number of full episodes were available on the late 2000s era Hasbro streaming site MonkeyBarTV despite the show's failure in late 2009.
