Continuing to look ahead to winter series, the designs for two more moe versions of classic super robots, set to appear in Toei's Robot Girls Z shorts, have been revealed. 1974's pioneering combiner Getter Robo becomes Maaya Uchida voiced Gecchan, a tomahawk wielding tsundere, while 1975's Steel Jeeg becomes Minami Tsuda voiced Jeeg-san, who at age 20 is the oldest of the girls, and the otaku president of a doujinshi circle.
The two will be reinforcement to the main Z team which includes:
1972's Mazinger Z - Mariko Honda voiced Z-chan
1974's Great Mazinger - Inori Minase voiced Gre-chan
1975's UFO Robo Grendizer - Kazusa Aranami voiced Grenda-san
Adversaries include Aya Hisakawa as Ashura, Yukiko Morishita as Garada-chan and Nao Tōyama as Doublas-chan.
