I just finished Mazinkaiser (yes I finished it in a day its only 7 episodes) and this was pretty good and better than I expected tbh. The art and animation omg I loved it. The entire show was just so aesthetically pleasing in even the most average of scenes. And sometimes they'd have these really thick outlines and it gave this sort of Pop Art feel, so good. Mazinkaiser has a pretty rad design. I really liked Koji in this show. And Tetsuya and the Great Mazinger get cucked yet again. Greeeaat (no pun intended). Tbf he got a cool scene in the last episode. And dude that final battle, man that shit was cool, giant robots with swords going at it with a cool song in the back. I felt the first 2 episodes and last 2 are the best in the show, honestly you could skip episodes 3, 4 and 5 (I still liked them though). My one problem with the show however, they set up Mazinkaiser to be so powerful and hard to control, and for a while its basically kind of a last resort thing as Koji hasn't mastered it, but one episode later they scrap that idea and Koji can use it no problem. A small thing but still they could've fleshed that out better. And sometimes the show felt a little too lighthearted. Like for the most part Mazinger Z is a lighthearted series but in some cases this felt a bit much. All in all a pretty cool show, I'd give a 7.5 or 8 out of 10.
