The Bladebreakers have advanced to the second round of the American Tournament where they square off against the Savage Slammers. The winner of this round advances to the semi-finals. Their competition first appears to be a bunch of slackers, but when Rei loses out in the first round, they quickly realize what they’re up against. Max is next, and for some odd reason, his rival folds under pressure, so the best of three is tied at one a piece with Takao coming in for the deciding battle. At first it looks like a quick win for the Slammers simply because of the size of his opponents enormous Beyblade and things get even more tense when Takao begins to lose his temper and his focus. The other Breakers convince him to concentrate and when he does, Takao pull off the victory. Next, the Bladebreakers decide to check out the American Team who are competing in another stadium. That’s where they get their first taste of the ultra-inflated ego of the All Starz’s captain, Michael.
