Synopsis

Prior to the events of the anime, three factions - the Garan Army, the Kiba Army, and the Aira Army, battle for total dominance of Machine Island. The island is basically a prison, isolated from the rest of the world. The island contains a vast amount of resources, allowing the three factions to create an infinite supply of giant robots for their respective armies.

The world government learns that the island's power reactor has become unstable and will explode within 66 hours, destroying all of life and Earth itself. The government sends the Death Caprice squad, composed of mercenaries Ken Kaido and Ryo Magami to solve the issue, along with their giant robot Mazinkaiser, but was that a good idea?

Very rarely do we see an anime come along that's so amazingly manly and straightforward that it actually functions as Gaydar™. Mazinkaiser SKL here has the amazing ability to easily pick out those who have more femininity in them than they're willing to admit, and all those people have to do to send such a signal is say "I did not enjoy this show." That's all it really comes down to, because what Japan has produced here is probably the most direct, pull-no-punches super robot series I've ever seen. It gets right down and dirty to the point: There is a badass robot, two badass read more

Mazinkaizer SKL is about endless gore and bloodshed...Which is fine by me!Although the show lacks in terms of proper storyline and character development due to its limited number of episodes,it still manages to fulfill its purpose,which is,roughly 1,5 hour of pure graphic violence.
Story : 6
While the story doesn't satisfy the ones looking for details,it still somehow serves its purpose,which is the prevalence of chaos and the commencing of a long and bloody battle.
Art : 7
Art development is very good,however,the scenery where the series takes place (a deserted area) is uniform,thus giving the viewer more and more of the same rocky environment.
Sound : 8
Japanese Metal music...awesome!I'm read more

Just as GGG Final is the 'more adult' version of GaoGaiGar, SKL is is a more no-holds barred take on the Mazinkaiser concept. If you loved Final for it's epic battles, high production values, noticable but not intrusive fanservice and excellent robot design, SKL just might scratch a similar itch.
Like Shin Mazinger and Mazinkaiser, this is another continuity reboot with more original material, featuring two new characters.
