Episode 40: Back to Basics
Kyojyu explains that the new Hard Metal beyblades are hard to control due to their smaller but heavier attack rings. Takao applies him a Rear naked choke to mock him, but the scene was cut from the English dub and the versions based on it. Takao, Daichi, Rei and Max all give their beyblades a try, but are unable to control them and grow frustrated on their failures. Meanwhile, Boris hosts a press conference in which he explains Takao and his friends are "radicals who oppose Beyblade progress of any kind" and are willing to destroy everything he worked for. He then announces his Justice 5 tournament as a response to Takao's challenge. Back at the training camp, Dragoon and Gaia Dragoon eventually run away from Takao and Daichi and they set off in search for them, failing numerous times to collect them back. Eventually, Takao and Daichi recall making their first attempts of beyblading as kids and realize controlling the Hard Metal beyblades is all about going back to basics. Suddenly, they stumble upon a bear. By reflex, they manage to have their beyblades take down two trees to block the bear. Meanwhile, Rei and Max also realize they should train as if they were newbies with beyblading and finally manage to control their new Draciel and Driger blades against Rick and Lee. Takao and Daichi eventually reappear and knock Rick and Lee out of the dish.
