It's the night before the fair celebrating the Kingdom of Guardia's one thousand year anniversary. When the humans have gone to sleep for the night, excited about the next day's celebration, the monsters come out to play.

Nuu and Mamo are two little monsters itching to have their own adventure in time and space, and their adventure group Nuumamonjaa is recruiting new members. Since neither is particularly strong in the brains department, their adventure turns into a disaster as they get into one mishap after another.

A fast drinking competition, a close encounter with a robotic cat, and a high-speed car chase—this might be more adventure than the tiny duo bargained for!


This OVA was made to promote the 1995 RPG classic Chrono Trigger.

First I have to say: Before watching this anime you should have played the game. Without knowing the game you don't get most of the jokes in the anime.

Art: The Chrono Trigger anime is now 12 years old so the quality of the animation is not really up to date. Nonetheless I rated the Art rather high because ...

Chrono Trigger is one of the best 16-bit games out there. Hell, it's one of the best games out there. And there's an anime based off of it. A sixteen minute, one episode one from 1996. Let's look at it.


The tale is set on the eve of the Millennium Fair. At this point, a bunch of familiar monsters come out to play and celebrate since many of them will invariably be killed once the game starts and everyone needs EXP. Especially best character Lucca. Our main monsters are Nuu and Mamo. The pair of them are trying to recruit other monsters to join ...

The only good thing of this anime is the music. Is the same music of the game, that's why it has a ten of mine. The rest is like "Ha...haha...haha...NOPE" Gonzalez is the best character and the rest are so derp as Carls @BSTCloud. If you wanna insult him, I will appreciate it. That's all I've gotta say, OST 10, the rest meh.
