ZATCH BELL! introduces American audiences to the world of good and evil "mamodo" and the quest of ZATCH BELL! ZATCH BELL! battles his adversaries with the help of his human friend, Kiyo. The power of the duo grows stronger as their relationship develops. Kiyo is a brilliant junior high student whose inflated ego (and tendency to blow the grading curve) has made him a major target for teasing at school. So his father sends him a bizarre birthday present--a strange little boy named ZATCH BELL--to help him make friends and reform his bad attitude. But Kiyo soon discovers that there's more to Zatch than his dad ever realized! Zatch is a creature called a mamodo, and he has magic powers that are unleashed when Kiyo reads spells from a mysterious red book. With Kiyo's help, Zatch must compete against the 99 other kids like him who are vying to become the king of the mamodo world!
