It's September 6th, and that means it's Go Nagai's birthday. Following the success of the Mazinkaiser OVA, this movie was produced to give the Mazinger franchise a proper climax until Shin Mazinger would be released six years later to reboot it. Taking inspiration from the Great General of Darkness plot of the Mazinger Z TV series, said villain launches a worldwide attack with the Mikene army. National landmarks are destroyed and multiple Mazinger characters die as they fail to combat the enemy army. Most of the movie is Kouji and Sayaka trying desperately to get back to Mazinkaiser as many people sacrifice themselves to ensure read more

Imagine that Michael Bay (Transformers) does a explosive film about Mazinkaiser with people actually dying, well, that's this movie.

Story is nothing new, the black knight swagger dude appears and destroys every city in ZA WARUDO, then wants to kill Koji Kabuto.

Art is just like Mazinkaiser OVAs, good animation.

Sound is just awesome because there are some JAM Project songs, so it's awesome.

Characters are the same as Mazinkaiser, but with some extras that end dying.

Enjoyment, THE FINAL BATTLE COULD BE BETTER, IT'S JUST A LITTLE BIT MEH FOR MAZINKAISER.

OVERRALL: 8, IT'S A FAIR NOTE, IT'S ENTERTAINING SO FUCK IT.

Almost exactly the opposite of the mazinkaiser Ova series
This final addition to the Mazinkaiser franchise has the much needed depth in drama, and gore, that the Mazinkaiser Ova lacked

I feel so bad having to post-pone this amazing movie thinking that it was just the same as the series, but boy have I wronged myself

Right off the bat you are greeted and spoiled with scenes you cannot imagine being incorporated into the Mazinger universe

As a long childhood fan, I loved this addition to the series, I could feel it expanded the audience's taste while at the same time maintaining that classic lustrous feel that all the read more

Almost the opposite of the other Mazinkaiser OVA series (not SKL) this one could have been very good as a longer series and by adding truer darker events in it's plot line allowed itself to build the shallow characters in ways the original OVA series didn't.

That said, I can't recommend this as a stand alone since when I watched this I thought this was the conclusion to the OVA series and not a separate series which is why I had a high enjoyment of this so much because of the way it seems to be saving the Mazinkaiser OVA series in general.

The premise, action and read more
