Synopsis

The story revolves around a new team of "Toei robot girls" named "Team Z" that is made up of three girls based on Toei's Mazinger Z franchise: Mazinger Z, Great Mazinger, and UFO Robot Grendizer. Usually they perform in activities around Nerima ward in Tokyo to raise the awareness of the promising future energy source "Photon Power" (koushiryoku). However, there are times when "Mechanical Beast" team of girls emerge from the "Subterranean Empire" and attempt to steal the energy. Thus "Team Z" has to battle them to prevent this, though sometimes they just go and beat up the "bad girls" to relieve stress.

Please note that because in this particular case MAL lists airings, not episodes/chapters/parts, this show is considered to be 3 episodes and not 9. Each of the three airings consisted of three episodes for a total runtime of 27 minutes per airing. The duration on MAL reflects this.

Crazy, over-the-top fun with good looking characters and amazing voice acting, honestly, for me the voice acting was the greatest part of the show.

The show is almost a parody of action films but it never crosses into cliche nonsense with only reference humour and instead stands on its own. The action is over-the-top with things blowing up for almost no reason and the nice character designs made it just that much better to look at. And the voice acting, stupendous and very anime.

Nice OP and ED too.

There is really only one way to describe Robot Girls Z...
IT'S SO BAD THAT IT'S ACTUALLY GOOD

It's really a comical all girls superhero short with an ecchi twist. The three main characters all fit stereotypical anime roles ranging from happy bubbly yandere to overly eccentric possible tsundere leader to cute likable kuudere (which btw is my favorite)

Overall the special is fun to watch, surprisingly entertaining, and really bad, but above all it's so bad that its actually good.

This anime deserves more love. Its pure, comical, dumfounded, and ridiculous fun.
This show is probably going over people's heads.
The story is simple, 3 robot girls defend the city against evil. The characters are a mixed bag, some are forgettable, some are just really fun to watch, especially the villains.
The OP and ED are catchy, as well as the rest of the soundtrack
The art is cute. Each character has something distinct about them, whcih makes them really fun to watch.
This show is goofy and shouldnt be taken seriously. Anyon calling this a masterpiece is giving it way to much credit. Anyone calling it stupid read more

I find art to be an important element in anime. This is just me personally. Now this is an example of an anime where the art does not make up for its cons.

Story (3/10):
This is the worst part of it all. It is supposed to be about three robot girls going up against four other robot girls that want to kill the Robot Girls Z. Why? Because some person on a screen wants them to die. The lack of reason kills it.

Art (9/10):
What can I say? The art is beautiful, shiny, refined, and colorful. The animators knew when to put less effort into it. The read more
