Hopefully no one will mind me making this topic, since there really... isn't a place on the forums to discuss this. Also, would anyone mind mirroring this to the Anime forum as well? Anyways, onto the discussion: Monsuno is an upcoming Japanese-American animated series on Nicktoons, produced by Dentsu, Jakks Pacific, FremantleMedia Enterprises, and The Topps Company. I'm not entirely sure of the story, but I will place it here once I can find a decent synopsis of it. Apparently my ability to Google has failed me there... The series is scheduled to hit air on February 2012 on Nicktoons in the United States. It is also scheduled to hit Japan and start broadcasting in October 2012. Bandai will also distribute the toy line in Japan and will be sold starting in September 2012. For those curious what the show looks like in motion, Nicktoons has posted two preview videos (which you can view here) for you to view. As for my personal opinion? I'm... a little skeptical. I've generally enjoyed the "mon" concept of animation, at least to some degree. But honestly, those animated clips... it feels really stiff. It's almost as if the animation studio is working with a shoestring budget, especially when anime in Japan is generally already at a low budget. While I won't judge until I see an episode, I'm a little afraid of how it's going to turn out. Also, the dub sounds.... :shrug: Anyways, how are you guys feeling about this? Update #1 - Added additional information to Japanese airdate and details when the toyline will hit Japan.
