"Mechamato" follows the adventures of a kind and creative young boy named Amato who inadvertently becomes the master of MechaBot, a Power Sphera with the ability to mechanize any daily life object into high-tech devices. Together they can combine (‘Mechamato’) into the titular armored hero. With the help of his best friends, Mechamato is on a mission to defeat and capture bad robots before they cause more chaos in the city.
