Storyline

The series revolves around re-awakened Monster DNA, called Monsuno, that finds its way into the unsuspecting hands of adventure-seeking teenagers Chase, Jinja, and Bren. Accompanied by their Monsuno, Lock, Charger, and Quickforce, they are searching for Chase's father Jeredy Suno, the creator of the Monsuno. They are soon joined by Beyal, a monk from the Himalayas along with his Monsuno Glowblade. Beyal often speaks of five people that with the help of their Monsuno, could change the world. It just so happens that they are that five, along with Dax, a teenager who along with his Monsuno Airswitch, opposes the team and is disliked among most people. The team has yet to befriend him and persuade him to join their cause. They are also on the run from an agency called "S.T.O.R.M." (Strategic Tactical Operatives for Recovery of Monsuno) who's plans are still in question. Written by Producer

Different with the Same elements
9 July 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

First off let me say I am an 18 year old uni student on break and so after watching Power Rangers Super Samurai instead of the Judge Judy that I usually watch I decided to give "Mosuno" a chance.

From the first minute of the episode I knew I was going to be hooked, I come from the generation in which dragonball z, pokemon, beyblade, zoids, yu-gi-oh etc... were in their prime and as with many of these anime series each contain a mythical/supernatural/scientific kind of element in them. Monsuno is pretty much the same, however it is different in that it offers another new range of possibilities and fantasies to entertain its viewers because anime can be as far-fetched and as loose as possible whilst still having the kind of believability that this could happen in real life which is why I like it.

Basically the synopsis is that there's this new kind of DNA that exists in the same form that coal/oil does (within regions that have to be mined in order to extract this DNA). The protagonist and his friends discover that his father had designed a core whilst also combining extracts from various fauna and flora which gives this DNA an ability to take form and be "spun out" of the core whenever its master chooses. From there there is an evil organisation that believes a war is coming and it is up to the protagonist to be the next chance for good vs evil.

This anime contains elements from pokemon, beyblade and maybe even a little bit of yu-gi-oh yet it is different in its own right. I'm not saying that its the best and going to be the newest craze out there but it is entertaining and is worth a watch.

8/10 because I liked its premiere and while the premise is getting pretty much generic with most animes, I like how it contains a little bit of believability and for a bored uni student with nothing to do in the 3-4 timeslot it definitely made it a little more entertaining.
