Prior to the events of the anime, three factions—the Garan Army, the Kiba Army, and the Aira Army, battle for total dominance of Machine Island. The island is basically a prison, isolated from the rest of the world. The island contains a vast amount of resources, allowing the three factions to create an infinite supply of giant robots for their respective armies.

The world government learns that the island's power reactor has become unstable and will explode within 66 hours, destroying all of life and Earth itself. The government sends the Death Caprice squad, composed of mercenaries Ken Kaido and Ryo Magami to solve the issue, along with their giant robot Mazinkaiser, but was that a good idea?

Japan has produced here is probably the most direct, pull-no-punches super robot series I've ever seen. It gets right down and dirty to the point: There is a badass robot, two badass dudes and lots of shit to ruin in a beautifully animated blaze of glory while lots of huge boobed chicks watch from the sidelines.

The story goes like this: The world is modernized and awesome, giant metal buildings, highways through the sky, all of that. That's not where the show takes place. SKL's tale of gallant heroism resides on an island that's permanently stuck in an 80's metal video. The shit that goes on ...

Mazinkaizer SKL is about endless gore and bloodshed...Which is fine by me!Although the show lacks in terms of proper storyline and character development due to its limited number of episodes,it still manages to fulfill its purpose,which is,roughly 1,5 hour of pure graphic violence.
Story : 6
While the story doesn't satisfy the ones looking for details,it still somehow serves its purpose,which is the prevalence of chaos and the commencing of a long and bloody battle.

Art development is very good,however,the scenery where the series takes place (a deserted area) is uniform,thus giving the viewer more and more of the same rocky environment.
Sound : 8
Japanese Metal music...awesome!I'm ...

This reminds me of the super macho anime of the 90s updated for millennial sensibilities. Modernized so that female characters are kick ass and not worthless, the animation suits modern standards and there's no random rape scenes. However the male leads still talk Eastwood tough, there's amazing violence, there's woman in tiny robes, swearing, tons of swords and guns and skull faced robot action. Plus the music is amazing metal and demands very loud playback. This anime won't change your life, but hot damn it all to hell if it's not a barrel of fun!

Bonus points for the army general in episode three whose ...
