Synopsis

In the world of Mushrambo, human life has all but come to an end. After a deadly virus threatened the extinction of mankind, a new race called the Enterrans was created to preserve life on Earth. However, relations between the Enterrans and their creators did not remain peaceful. Soon a war broke out with the Enterrans fighting against the humans and their robots. Ultimately the Enterrans were the victors of this conflict, renaming Earth as Enterra in honor of their victory.

Before the last vestiges of humanity fell, one of the few remaining scientists put his daughter, Yakumo Shindou, into a sleep chamber. His hope was that his daughter would one day reawaken and find the human sanctuary known as Shinzo, reviving humanity and restoring peace between humans and Enterrans. Centuries have passed since the war; Yakumo now awakens and meets an Enterran named Mashura who pledges to assist in her quest. Also joined by the Enterrans Sago and Kutal, the group must now work to locate Yakumo's missing memories and locate Shinzo. But not every Enterran is as kind as Yakumo's new friends and some are prepared to commit any atrocity to prevent the return of humanity.

Background

Mushrambo was based on the famous 16th century Chinese novel Journey to the West, but adapted to a futuristic science fiction setting. Mashura is based on Sun Wukong, Yakumo on Xuanzang, Sago on Sha Wujing, and Kutal on Zhu Bajie.

The series first aired on TV Asahi. The US adaption originally aired on Fox Kids and later re-aired on Jetix and ABC Family.

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.
