A simulation battle encyclopedia created with the concept of “Let’s have fierce warriors from various genera, such as the animal and dinosaur worlds, fight in a tournament format to determine the strongest.”
“What would happen if a polar bear and an African elephant fought?” “If mythical gods fought, who would be the strongest?”…This series has made such dream-like battles a reality.
This series, which is the origin and the best of the tournament-style “battle encyclopedias,” is mainly supported by elementary school students, and the cumulative circulation of the series has exceeded 4.3 million copies. In addition, we offer a wide range of products including card games, figures, apparel, and candy toys. It is a highly anticipated content that will begin broadcasting as a TV anime from January 2024.
