Storyline

The story starts when Dr. Hell sends his first assistant, Baron Ashura, to kill Dr. Kabuto. The attempt is successful, but not completely: Just before his death, he is found by his grandson, Kouji Kabuto, and informs him about the recently finished robot hidden on the underground basement.

The one and only giant robot

This is one of the best giant robot anime (cartoon) of all time. The animation is somewhat dated, but the originality of the characters (specially baron Ashura and viscount pigman) remain quite striking and not easily forgotten. The mechanical beasts are also amazing, not two being alike. As with many other anime, mazinger z (known as tranzor z in the US )suffered from censorship all over the world and is hard to know if the version released in the US is uncut.
