Malaysian animation studio, Monsta revealed a long-awaited FIRST LOOK at its upcoming new animated series: Mechamato on its YouTube channel and official social media platforms today following a teaser video announced the day before.


▲ Some never-seen-before footages of Amato and a Power Sphera named MechaBot in this First Look video. Watch it now!


The new series will follow the adventures of a young boy named Amato who somewhat inadvertently becomes the master of MechaBot, a Power Sphera with the power to mechanize any object.


Long-time fans and followers of Monsta may already be familiar with the term ‘Power Sphera’ from the studio’s hit Elemental Superhero series, BoBoiBoy. Within the series’ universe, Power Spheras are sphere-like robots with special powers or abilities that can be harnessed by its master. Monsta will carry forth the same theme of a ‘hero and robot‘ pair in the new Mechamato series as well.

Many are hopeful for a deeper look into Amato as a character and his connection with BoBoiBoy.

The ‘Mechamato Series: First Look‘ video showed what appeared to be the very first meeting between Amato and MechaBot. The latter seemed to have crash-landed on Earth when Amato discovered him. Both characters had a rough initial impression of each other to say the least. Later on in the video, MechaBot displayed his ‘mechanization’ abilities by mechanizing with random objects in his surroundings such as a trash bin, broom, and even a bicycle! The video peaked with a cool transformation sequence in which Amato dons MechaBot in the form of a red suit of armor, striking a pose on the streets, while the camera pans away to show a mysterious group of robots. The ending has a bit of a humorous tone that viewers will have to watch for themselves!
