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

There comes a time whenever I re watch this series, I would want to start to review it in order to give examples of why I like the show or not, despite the strange amount of stuff going around. Of course this series is very short but its more so an entertaining value anime. I mean come on. I've seen this more than 50 times and I first watched it at the age of 7. By now I should have been tiring of it. As much as I want to say I'm tired of it I can't deny a bit of the things I feel 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

Mazinkaiser is a beautifully animated, well directed, and all around solid series. It was a 7 episode OVA created by Brain's Base, back when they were more or less the Go Nagai studio (four of their first six anime were based on his works). It was directed by Masahiko Murata (GR: Giant Robo, Baby Steps) who I consider to be a great (if rather underrated) director. It also had character designs from Kenji Hayama, the man who did the designs for Change!! Getter Robo.

Mazinkaiser is (from what I can gather) a sequel of sorts to Great Mazinger. It shows Kabuto Kouji having his Mazinger read more
