Summary from Random House Children's Books
Five awesome aliens have been unleashed from the darkest corner of the galaxy - and they're out to destroy the universe.

Only Cosmo, a young boy from planet Earth, has the power to stop them. Recruited by the elite defence organisation
G-Watch to defend the galaxy, Cosmo must prove himself and commence battle against the deadliest aliens in space . . .

The first title in this action-packed series sees Cosmo discover the truth about his father's mysterious past, and take up his role as a defender of the galaxy. When the mighty alien Rockhead is sent to destroy G-Watch headquarters, only Cosmo has the power to stop him. But will the young Earthling be able to defeat the monstrous mountain alien?

Nayuleska's thoughts 
Given that I usually prefer female leads (Nuri has a cool role), Im totally into Cosmo's exciting story. The high tech technology and fluidlike illustrations make it feel like a 10/10  anime series.

Find out more about the series on Max's website.
