There is something patriotic within these two anime. It could be me...or not. There isn't also much to say. These two are basically fun anime to watch if you get tired of the same-o same-o stuff that's playing today. Grab some popcorn and a soda and relax...

Both Nagai properties were worked on contemporaneously by the same studio, and it shows. They're animated quite similarly (stiff figures, bright colors) and both feature a simple monster-of-the-week plot. I'm relatively sure that the two shows even share actors; Kouji and Akira are essentially the same character.

Mazinger Z and Mobile Suit Gundam are both one of the oldest and greatest Mecha/Super Robot anime's there is, both of these classics involve teens dragged into piloting a giant robot to fight other giant robots. Both Amuro and Kouji are apart of the Super Robot pilots "holy trinity" (which was started by Super Robot Taisen).
