This show definitely isn't for anyone not up to speed with Mazinger or much less care for the series. They give NO QUARTER to anyone not up to speed with the old storyline.

I mean, I swear it's been decades since I watched the original. I barely remember it at all.

I'd argue against. I mean, they've already changed nearly everything about the storyline. They just had the first episode in the middle of the action for both the WOAH HOLY CRAP factor, and to sucker in old fans with all the classic characters.

The storyline will start properly in episode 2, where they will slowly introduce everything and everyone. They've already said that this series was made just as much for new fans as old fans, I believe.

Yes, I meant Ankoku Daishougun.
Maybe I'm subconciously wanting to see Devil Man in the already-messy cast.

Why did he kill Dr. Hell? How should I know?
Cause he was an insignificant, annoying little bug crawling near his feet?

At first I thought the show is catered specially for Mazinger fans. Then I thought again that its actually retelling Mazinger for anyone new to the story and at the same time catering to old fans.

So yea, anyone can watch and enjoy the show if they can enjoy old school mecha.

Dr Hell's probably going to come back though and he was evilly badass crawling on the ground refusing to die even when cut in half lol

Yeah...time changes everyone even villains are darker. Before Dr.Hell gave flowers on the Dark General's grave...now they're just demons out to kill and rule.

needs GOD MAZINGER!

First episode left me feeling pretty "WTF?!" but I'm plenty interested enough to continue watching. I still really dig the retro-style designs for the mecha and characters. I know I shouldn't ask for things to make too much sense from a Go Nagai franchise, but hopefully things become clearer once the storyline reboots with episode 2.

Let me just say that Mazinger Z is not just the Grandfather of all mecha, with capital first letters for Rocket Punch.

It also has the Grandmother of all Tsunderes.

Sayaka-san is the original Tsundere in the history of all anime, she's also the first hotblooded female and wears the first skin tight female mecha pilot suit in history.

Wow yeah...I never knew Sayaka was a Tsundere...she was sweet at times with Kouji, but probably that's the only thing I've noticed and not her nagging on him.

Anyways I think Dr.Yumi was the first middle aged man to ever hold a microphone EVERYTIME in the base to notify people around XD

Also I think we need to see Maria get animated again. She's so cute in the 70's and I think her artwork before can still pass to MOE standards up todate.

Spoiler for Maria Grace Fleed:

Old school mecha ladies are awesome.

Maria was nice, but I prefer Rubina-hime.

Then there's Miwa from Jeeg, Mari from Reideen and Minako from Baldios, I posted at the SRWZ thread that she was drawn in the game looking like Hirano Aya lol:
Spoiler for Minako:
My favourite of all old school mecha female leads is Noriko from Gunbuster, the ultimate hotblooded female pilot.

EDIT: Miho -> Miwa

Man those girls are so hot and cute! And you're right! I feel like that's Aya's look. XD

Probably biased here my favorite SR girls are Sayaka, Jun and Maria.

Sayaka is of course one of my favourites as well, but of the Mazinger series, Rubina-hime is still the most beautiful:
Spoiler for Rubina:
Can't find Mari though, she's another long haired beauty, Akira's lucky to have such a loving girlfriend lol

I would rather say something nonsensical, incoherent, and alienating after the first five minutes, but fine, i'll use your definition.

Which is pretty much the hallmark of Go Nagai material, really.

Thinking about it, the first 2 minutes of the first episode of Gurren Lagann make more sense than this entire episode and there's not only even less context for that bit, it never actually happens in the series proper.

Haha I dunno I'm kinda partial to series that kick your ass right out of the gate and don't let up for anything...

I was alternating between WTF and fangasming from the overwhelming 'hotblood' with that first episode.

Iam more surprised Kouji hasn't taken out his lazer gun yet.

Is the morale over 150?!!

Look, i know about Go Nagai. I do. And giant robots too.
I even watched almost the entirety of Grandizer as a kid.

But this episode pretty much guaranteed i wont see the second, no matter the hotbloodedness of it all. If thats the same guy who made Giant Robo - i say that his age caught up to him.

I don't know whether this was made for old fans or new ones, though I suspect a combination of both. Speaking just for myself, I found it stupid and boring. For me at any rate, this is a definite skipper.
