Dr. Hell and his Mechanical Beasts are back, and they're more dangerous than ever before. Kouji Kabuto and Tetsuya Tsurugi fight a fierce battle against these hellish machines, which are under the command of Baron Ashura. Unfortunately, they are defeated, with Kouji's Mazinger Z being captured and Tetsuya's Great Mazinger seriously damaged by the enemy.

The devious Dr. Hell quickly converts the captured robot into Ashura Mazinger and uses it to attack the Photo Power Lab. At the same time, Kouji is missing in action, which leaves Testuya to defend the lab in the damaged Great Mazinger. But the forces of Dr. Hell are too strong, even for a brave pilot such as Tetsuya, and all seems to be lost.

The battle seems to be drawing to a close, until an overpowering blast fired by an unknown robot destroys the entire Mechanical Beast army. Could this mysterious robot be the legendary Mazinkaiser, and who is piloting it?

Although it would strike anyone as another childish anime
It has been actually one of my big childhood favorites
and although it doesn't pack any seriousness behind its plot or drama (if there's any) it does have its own lustrous style

Mazinkaiser takes the viewer to the ultimate Mazinger Z form of robots, being an advanced form more even than the Great Mazinger, it provides amazing fight scenes and marvelous drawing, that will keep you excited and on edge throughout the whole series

I certainly loved it, and loved how they re-introduced the beloved characters (villains or heroes) of the Mazinger Z universe

Mazinkaiser exists in a liminal state between adaptation and new property: Mazinkaiser itself and a fair number of the mechanical beasts are brand-new, but veteran Mazinger fans will recognize some of the setups and structure of the series.

Similar to its super robot contemporaries Shin Getter Vs Neo Getter and Getter Robo Armageddon, Mazinkaiser incorporates motifs and concepts from all iterations of the source material: if one hasn't read Mazinger Z and Great Mazinger before watching, it is more than likely that the show will feel barren. Even then, there are those that may be turned off from its almost dogmatic faithfulness read more

Mazinkaiser is based on one of the first super robot shows, Go Nagai's Mazinger Z. I'd heard a lot of good things about this seven episode OVA so I was excited to see it. Unfortunately, it wasn't as good as I was led to believe. Mazinkaiser is also the name of the main giant robot in this show. It was originally created for the Super Robot Wars video games and apparently the fan reaction was so good that they decided to make an OVA series based on it. It's set in the Mazinger Z universe with the same characters as Mazinger Z. The characters are read more

Although there is already a 5 review, I disagree with the reviewer on one aspect in that he concludes that it was the lack of over-arching plot that hurts this show.

I just can't view it that way because this is how it is for classic Super Robots and this remake could be considered as elevating the quality of these normally tedious Super Robot stories.

If anything had Mazinkaiser been further modernized as having an over-arching plot it will only worsen the depth of the characters involved in this series.

That said, Mazinkaiser primarily failed in my opinion because it wasn't able to elevate the same euphoric feeling read more
