Humanity is exterminated by a genetic race they created to fight a deadly virus. One of the scientists brings his young daughter into a cryogenic sleep, hoping that she will awaken one day and find surviving humans, so that she can bring peace between them and the genetic beings, the Enterrans. The girl, Yakumo received special powers at the impact of a meteorite, the impact after which the Enterrans went evil. When she awakens, 500 years later, she goes on her journey and meets three Enterrans who join her. Together with them she slowly finds from the secrets of the past and what happened to her home planet in reality.

Mushrambo, also called "Shinzo" most of the times, was a really great anime in my childhood, I've watched it recently again, and decided to put up a review.

It's a story, very loosely (dúh) based on "Journey To The West", which is their journey to the city Shinzo, the story is okay, a human (which is very rare to see free or up and runnin') who is sick has to go to Shinzo and can save the world by this, or at least that's her idea, to create peace. Of co...urse our main character joins her on her journey, with two other fighters.

Basic story line so read more

Great graphics & sound; cool-looking characters, without the sometimes typical for anime abnormally silly faces, and a sweet plot (to save what's left of humanity).

Nevertheless, the anime has it's bad points, too - the dialogs are cheesy and banal; the same attack used on the same opponent deals completely different damage every time; the second dimension story-line somewhat conflicts with the events in the first part of the anime.

As a whole it is awesome and I definitely recommend it, but it should have ended with episode 21.
