Shin Mazinger (2009) CONCENTRATED MANLINESS
Posted 10/1/09
The first super robot show ever gets a remake, and it's frigging epic. For starters, Shin Mazinger is a plot driven mecha show with no monster of the week at all.

So if you enjoyed Gurren Lagann or any other mech shows, remember their roots, and the pioneer of them all is Mazinger, which is why Shin Mazinger is a must watch, and honestly, it's an excellent show, and I can fully recommend it to you, and if you're not convinced, go watch the director, Yasuhiro Imagawa other works. G Gundam, Giant Robo and Tetsujin 28th.

Sypnosis:
In the near future, humanity enters another energy revolution following the discovery of Photon Power. Derived from the ore discovered under the foothills of Mt. Fuji, its intended use was to solve the world's energy problems with its unimaginable power. Seeking this energy is Dr. Hell, a madman craving world domination who with his subordinates Baron Ashura, Count Brocken and Viscount Pygman, commands an army of mechanical beasts excavated from the ruins of ancient Greece to seize the Photon Power Lab for himself. Meeting the attack head on is the hot-blooded teenager Kabuto Kouji, who pilots the Photon Powered robot built by his grandfather, Mazinger Z. But in this battle between Dr. Hell and the Kabuto family, many legends surrounding the Mycenaean Civilization and Bardos Island, as well as the secrets of Mazinger Z remain shrouded in mystery.

The show has just ended around a week ago, and it's probably getting a sequel.

And here, I may direct you to the very creative and the very jam project second opening of Shin Mazinger.
BEHOLD, THE GUARDIAN.
