To tewak a line from Chris Rock's character in Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back: ''I think Pokemon gonna sue somebody!'' This underwhelming American-Japanese anime series features giant monsters trapped in little glass vials. When their human owners open them, the monsters come out and do battle. These include an enormous polar-bear thing with great big crystals growing out of its flesh, a huge razorback hyena-pig abomination, and what appears to be a flying, armoured octopus. Our heroes are three teenagers who seem to be fighting some sort of fascist regime. Something for the children to watch while they are getting all hopped up on Coco Pops before school.
