    I've been watching clips and it seems like a great show plus it has a kick ass theme song but is it worth it to sit down and watch?
    And is the dub that is called Tranzor Z.... Or is there a better dub?

    So, would me, a 17 year old enjoy it at all....
    And is Tranzor Z good (I see hate comments about that dub and the intro)?

    Mazinger Z is one of the most famous of the old school giant robot shows. It's in every super robot wars game. But the original show is very dated with limited animation as it came out in the 70's. More recent versions are

    and shin mazinger

    Tranzor Z never really finished dubbing the entire series and the original japanese version is only found bootleged or fansubbed.

    I'd also recommend Shin Getter Robo

    I used to love Tranzor Z when I was a kid. Started to read the Mazinger Z manga a while back but it was on an app on my phone, so I didn't get far.

    Can't really comment on the original but I've seen Mazinkaiser and Shin Mazinger.

    Mazinkaiser is good but a little brainless/generic. Shin Mazinger on the other hand is a superb piece of anime.

    Mazinger Z is the daddy of all Super Robot shows. There were giant robots before it, but it set the standards and tropes of the rest of them. It's worth watching for that value alone.

    Then I guess I must watch it.... xD
    I saw some clips from Shin Mazinger.... It looks amazing but I still think the theme song sucks compared to the first one!
    I like the animation on it.... TBH!
    But either way, Its easy to find a bootleg.... And if Tranzor Z never finished, I will just watch the subbed version....
