Ren Homura has just moved back to his hometown of Kaminohara, but he isn't able to remember much about the time he spent there other than vague flashbacks. When he retrieves his cell phone which he had sent to a shop for repairs, he finds that a mysterious game titled “Monster Strike” has been installed on it. Unaware of its purpose or how it got there, Ren decides to open it, an action that will change his life forever as he finds himself suddenly attacked by a strange man.

Now trapped on the roof of his school which strangely has been designated as a "stage," Ren is shocked to see the man summon a realistic monster from the game, one that is more than capable of inflicting damage on a human. His only chance of getting out of this situation alive is by summoning the dragon Oragon, who tells Ren that he will crush the opposing monster for him. Unfortunately, it turns out that Oragon is a tiny dragon that is completely useless!

The story is not interesting and almost looks like less inspired version of other pocket monsters game anime in that genre. This may not be as disappointing if you came to this anime through the original game, which had a very flexible premise that could lead to many different designing principles. Seeing them play it safe and take the most standard can be rather insulting. Even by ignoring this, the anime does not represent the game well and gives out false impressions of some mechanics.

The design and art style is very similar to the game, which can go from decent to great design. Thanks read more

I'm a big fan of the game and I like to play it every day, but I didn't feel the same for the anime. So let's get into it. STRIKE SHOT!!!!!

First of all the plot. It starts out with our protagonist Ren finding an app called monster strike on his phone and being dragged into playing the game. Now it works like the game, but it's brought into reality so there. The plot kinda changes here and there like early in the series, it was about finding out who possesses these random strikers into attacking our protagonist and his friends. Then it changes to saving read more

This is a really decent anime, not the greatest, but enjoyable on many levels, it's based on a phone app that is kinda like marbels but with monsters and different powers and effects. It quickly becomes less about the actual game, and more of a anime, but it worked for me.

Story: New kid comes to town and finds out about a fad game in the area, but for some reason it feels like he used to live there, but he can't remember it. The story works, it has mysteries involved in it that slowly get revealed though some things read more

This is by far one of the dorkiest shows I have seen. For the first few episodes, you have absolutely no clue what is going on. And it really doesn't get much better.
First of all, the episodes are only 8 minutes long (though in all reality the episodes are only 6 minutes long. 2 minutes of nonsense). Due to this, there is little time for character development. There is no real story until you hit about episode 12. This anime feels like a mixture between Pokemon, Digimon, and Yugioh, yet the episodes are a 3rd shorter than they should be! (Average is 24 mins long. read more
