Shin Mazinger Shougeki! Z-hen
(One episode watched):|
This so Go Nagai! Freakish villains, colorful terminology, bizarre weapons, absurd explanations--it all adds up to a sort of fantasy science fiction which he is famous for. It had me grinning two minutes into the show. It also left me thoroughly confused; was this a refresher course on what has already happened in the old TV series? A lengthy teaser about what lies ahead? A montage of famous scenes (re-animated)? Is this series a remake or a sequel, or something else? Who's who and on which side? I pray that this will start making sense even to newcomers sometime soon, because it might be pretty damn cool. An interesting touch: an ad for a Bandai Mazinger Z figure was included with this episode.
My favorite line (so far): "Look! Now is the time for the true strength of photon power to shine!"
