Synopsis:

On a solitary island in the middle of a vast unknown ocean, Dr. Hell, a deranged genius, plans the final stage of his plan for world domination: the activation of his Mecha Beast Army. The only man aware of Dr. Hell's plan is Dr. Kabuto, a pioneer in new energy sources. In a desperate attempt to stop Dr. Hell before his death, Kabuto uses his research and resources to construct a weapon powerful enough to match that of the Mecha Beast Army, which he entrusts to his grandson, Kouji Kabuto. That weapon is the Super Robot Mazinger Z!

Super robot of the 70s, one shouldn't need to tell anything else if you were a children back in the days.

If you missed it for any reason (including being born after the golden age of the super robot genre), there you have the basis of your animefanhood :)!!!

MalteseFalcon

Getter Robo and Mazinger Z are both old school giant robot series. Attacks with silly names, a different giant villian to defeat each week, super science and saving the world!

I would be shocked if you did not like one if there, if you already enjoyed the other.

darthjimbo

Both are creations of Go Nagai and are both incredible Super Robot series from the old school era!

Invincible Superman Zanbot 3

Invincible Superman Zanbot 3

Kappei is your normal run of the mill delinquent lad, riding motorcycles and trying to gain leadership of a gang. When fighting with a rival, they are both attacked by a strange creature! Fleeing to his Grandfather's nearby sea rig, Kappei is knocked into the water and is rescued by a giant spaceship piloted by his grandparents. Before he can figure out what is going on, he finds himself in the mighty Zam-bird, fighting against the monster that attacked him - a mecha-boost of the planet-destroying Gaizok! Kappei isn't the only one in his family who ends up with a giant robot, though; his cousin Uchuta pilots the Zambull and Keiko pilots the Zambase. Together, the three of them can transform into the Invincible Superman Zambot 3!

Mazinger Z and Zanbot 3 are more than old school, cheesy mecha series with transformation series, monsters of the week and attacks where the pilots have to yell out the name of in order to work (granted, they both have all of these).

On top of that, there are more similarities. A family which ends up with a giant robot. A villian who is after world domination, but attacks Japan to the exclusion of the rest of the world because the one thing that could defeat them is there. A pissed off populace because, let's face it, you can only stand to have your city destroyed so many times.

Both series also have the subtext of a cocky young pilot, who goes from gung-ho can't be wrong, to learning what it means to be a hero and that actions have consequences.

If you enjoyed Mazinger Z, you will also like Invincible Superman Zanbot 3 and vice versa.

If you've seen one old school giant robo anime, you've seen them all. Blocker Corps and Mazinger Z are two oldies with a similar feel and tone

Kotetsushin Jeeg

Kotetsushin Jeeg

The year is 2025. Fifty years ago, Queen Himika and the evil Jama Empire attacked mankind; Kyushu, Japan, was their battleground. Ultimately an event caused fog to surround Kyushu, effectively cutting it off from the rest of Japan; and the mainland has lost contact with it ever since. In the present, students like the motorcycle-loving Kenji Kusanagi have little knowledge of these events, except what they learn in history books. However, when Himika and her Phantom Gods appear once more, Kenji finds himself in the middle of the battle - and a cockpit. Now, as the pilot of the mecha Jeeg, Kenji and a few unlikely classmates must battle the forces of evil and save the world!

Kotetsushin Jeeg reminds me of a combination of Getter Robo and Mazinger Z (with good reason given they are all the brainchild of Go Nagai). Cross Mazinger's moves and general look with Getter Robo's transforming and support vehicle. Combine the main characters to a degree, as well as their enemies, and poof,Jeeg!

Kotetsushin Jeeg is a more modern edition, and not quite as hokey as the old mecha series are. If you have fond memories of Mazinger Z I recommend giving a the more modern, yet still similar Kotetsushin Jeeg a try.
