    Superb mecha action for the Juvenile mecha fan in me.
    Ah...Mazinkaiser SKL. This "reimagining" (If you will) of Go Nagai's Super Robot OVA Mazinkaiser, Is fantastic when it comes to the action. However, the story can be pretty bad. But that being said, I don't think that anyone is expecting a superb story when it comes to Super Robot series. So I don't fault it for not having a decent story. For what it's worth, I think you should check it out. Just ...

    Brash, Unrepentant, and Uncaring for Rumpled Sensitivites
    What to say? Great thrashy soundtrack, buckets of gore, and insane robot action. The animation is decent. It is a good nod to the original. What it doesn't have is a solid plot, but it doesn't really need one. It's short, with all three episodes run together into a quasi-movie, and it doesn't care about your questions or any loose ends.

There are plot holes, some I would love ...

  • Make a Hollywood action movie and stick a franchise title on it
    Produced as a 3-episode OVA, Mazinkaiser SKL is quite the oddball among its peers in the franchise. Let's face it, the average Mazinkaiser doesn't hop around doing gun-kata with his two pistols, nor is it a two-seater with Kabuto Kouji not existing anywhere in the picture. In fact, the only thing Mazinkaiser about this anime is the main robot, the title, and that spirit of craziness apparent in ...

    Not you usual Mazinger or Kaiser
    I grew up with the original Series. (Mazinger Z) THis OVA represent and alternate future. Where the Kaiser is a symbol of death for some and hope for others. Another spin on this series is that the Kaiser Pliders is a dual cabin aircraft shape as a skull.
