Those of you hoping to catch the Mazinger Z Infinity feature film announced last year in Japan, the wait is almost over, but you better clear your schedules for next month on the 11th and 12th, since those will be the only two showings for the highly anticipated film. Attendees to either showing will also get their hands on an exclusive movie poster while supplies last. Below, the trailer for the screening event followed by the key visual and synopsis.
Viz describes the film below:
The MAZINGER Z: INFINITY movie is based on the classic manga series by the immutable creator, Go Nagai. It follows our hero, Koji Kabuto, in an action-packed adventure where only he can choose his ultimate path! Ten years ago, the villainous scientist Dr. Hell led his wicked followers, known as the Underground Empire, in a struggle to destroy all of humanity. It was against these forces that the young hero Koji Kabuto fought, piloting the legendary super robot “Mazinger Z.” Koji’s victory stopped Dr. Hell’s evil plan and returned peace to the Earth. Now Koji has left the pilot seat behind and become a scientist in his own right, following in his father’s and grandfather’s footsteps. Yet an unexpected encounter deep under Mt. Fuji triggers an even greater threat to mankind than ever before and alters Koji’s destiny forever. With humanity’s fate in their hands, Koji and Mazinger Z face a choice between good…and evil.
