Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?
Okay, I had my suspicion since Mazinger Z shape is ... Dangerously similar to that of ZERO, but that last line about kami and akuma is ringing alarm bells in my head.

Might just be wrong tho.

The latest trailer looks and feels genuinely good this time. It made me pumped up to see it. I hope my local theater will show it and when it does, I'll be there.

I'm never a fan of that song. I didn't like it back when I watch the original show and I still don't like it now. It rings some nostalgia bells but that's it.

Hasn't that line always been present in the series?

It was definitely there in Shin Mazinger Z, so I'd assume so.

I have to say the trailer looks really sweet, although I do kind of feel sorry for the SRW guys, they have to implement yet another version of Mazinger with different voice actors.

It's definitely an old line, much older than ZERO.

Job hazard when you deal with the greats.
I think I heard some of the original series' sound effects very low in the trailer, specifically for the Breast Fire when he fires it in the trailer. I love it when they use the old sound effects.

That's what I remember it from too, but I think it's always been the tag line of the franchise. Perhaps not that of the original anime, but at least the manga.

It was present in the original manga IIRC and its various incarnations (including Mazinsaga) over the years.

So, I just got back from a screening (given the movie is getting released in Europe first) and globally I can say I'm satisfied - I got what I expected.

Let me clear a thing first - people expecting something similar to Shin Mazinger ZERO are going to be disappointed. This movie is deeply rooted into the TV series continuity, as evidenced by a lot of reference and details and uses the titutlar subtitle in a different way.

Brief summary:

Spoiler for Mazinger Z Infinity spoilers:


The story is typical Nagai fare, perhaps with a bit more of technobabble than necessary, but it's generally simple and does its job. In general there's a good balance between action and quiet moments. The penultimate fight is also very good and IMO it's worth the ticket alone. While the movie uses quite often the famous catchphrase "it can be a god or a demon" it doesn't really delve into it too much.
Technically speaking, the CG used for the robot fights is very good (but Toei has been consistently good at CG) and the 2D parts aren't that bad either. It feels a couple scenes have been cut due to some odd transitions, but I have no way to confirm if it's true or not.
The score consists of new material, a remaster of certain iconic BGMs (like Mazinger's launch) and a new remastered OP.
The movie is about 90 mins long but the pacing is ok, as I said.
In the end it's all about expectations: if you expect something "deep" you're going to be disappointed. If you're expecting "classic" TV Nagai - with some shades of his manga works - I think the movie can be considering very entertaining.
