Great follow-up to "Mazinger Z"

"Great Mazinger" is a direct sequel to "Mazinger Z", since Mazinger Z's
last episode is also Great Mazinger's first. To battle a new, more
powerful menace, an improved version of Mazinger, with a new pilot, is
introduced. The new hero, Tetsuya, proves to be a bit of a hothead and
in the end he'll need the help of Koji (the hero of Mazinger Z) so he
can defeat the forces of evil. I have great childhood memories of this
show : the art was inventive and the villains rather scary, at least
more than in "Mazinger Z". The Mikene empire, set at the center of the
earth, was populated with grotesque half-beast creatures who kept
sending one grotesque threat after another. Definitely a great show,
with a darker, grittier tone than "Mazinger Z".
