Anime News Network is reporting that a commercial on The CW television network announced that the B-Daman CrossFire anime series will begin airing on August 17, 2013 at 10:30 a.m. as part of the Vortexx block.

The story is described as:

The story takes place in year 20XX – in the town of East City, where the toy B-Daman is popular with children. Riki Ryugasaki is an elementary school boy in this town.

He wants to be an adventurer when he grows up and his favorite word is “mystery.” Riki has a lively personality, but can be a bit of an airhead at times – he marches to the beat of his own drum.

One day Riki is taken to his first B-Daman event by his childhood friend and classmate, Sumi Inaba. Although he doesn’t participate as a player, Riki’s natural curiosity sparks an interest towards B-Daman. And when Riki hears an urban legend about “a secret B-Daman tournament (a tournament that only a very selected group of players are allowed to participate)” spreading amongst the children of the town, he is even strongly attracted to B-Daman.

This block is currently airing Dragon Ball Z Kai, Yu-Gi-Oh!, and Yu-Gi-Oh! Zexal.
