Although it already aired in Japan, Zentrix was animated in Hong Kong and is being presented with only the English voice track (and no extras). Zentrix is the perfect city of 2088, run by Emperor Jarad's ultimate robot, Omycronpsy. But when the six cyberchips that form Omycronpsy's mind become unstable, the Emperor goes back in time seven years to prevent the creation of the robot. His daughter Megan follows him, with Mango, her dinosaur-toy-playmate, and super-robot Zeus as companions. Megan wanders through the past, trying to find the six hidden cyberchips and disable them, with some help from people she befriends along the way.

Key elements of the story are left unexplained: why does Megan go from 15 to eight when she travels through time? Why would Omycronpsy blow up an undersea fortress that contains one of his vital chips? The main characters all seem to have come from animation's equivalent of Central Casting: Omycronpsy laughs maniacally and derides his underlings as fools, Megan remains determinedly spunky, etc. Clutches of cutesy side characters repeatedly halt the plot in its tracks. (The Peach-Wigis in episode 3 look like a Jolly Green Giant commercial gone wrong.) The low-budget computer animation never conveys a sense of weight; the characters gesticulate furiously, but fail to convey credible thoughts and emotions. The bright colors of Zentrix may divert small children for a little while, but their older siblings will quickly grow restless. (Rated 7 and older: robot vs. robot violence) --Charles Solomon

I found a copy of this in the $5.00 bin at my local Wal-Mart some time back and thought it looked interesting. I don't feel you are ever too old to enjoy a good animated film. Though I felt that the dialogue of one of the robots (Zeus) seemed a little stilted over all it's good clean entertainment suitable for even the very young. The only thing I regret is that the saga isn't complete in one volume. You end up with a cliffhanger unless you get a copy of the 2nd volume at the same time as you pick up the 1st. Young children will probably find it very entertaining.

I had a chance to see this show while I was in Japan. Of course, I had no clue what this show was all about, but I thought then that the CG were quite good consisted of robots and actions (to the level of Reboot). This CG animation is intended for the younger audiences who like cute robots and machines with lots of fighting scenes. I thought that the design of robots are quite unique equipped with blades and firing power.

The story may started off slow, but it will contain lots of action once the main character is transported through time. Don't expect any complicated plots and storylines here as it will be simple and straightforward. But if you like cute robots with actions then this CG animation could be for you. This box set contains 3 disc with 13 episodes. Volume 2 was just being released and my order is on the way. Hope that my review helps.
