    Pretty sure someone (besides me that is) will be excited about these news. This was posted on Discotek Media's Facebook wall:

    I've already got the full run of every Mazinger show except God Mazinger so meh. Now a brand new Mazinger show would be exciting! This year is the 50th anniversary of the original show and they haven't done crap as far as anime to celebrate it. Kind of disappointing really.

    How many Mazinger shows have there been? I assume we're talking about a release of the first series, right?

    Yeah, this is the original series, and yes, I am excited. Can't wait.

    *phew* I thought this was going to be a live-action movie.

    I might get this. I know jackshit about the Mazinger franchise or whatever it's called, but I like the robot designs so I might take a look.

    Keep in mind this is from 1972 so it's pretty rough animation/story wise by today's standards. If you're not nostalgic for the old stuff in the franchise you would probably enjoy the more recent stuff more. Wikipedia can inform you as to all the various shows.

    Well, I slapped on my eye-patch, strapped on my flintlocks and my cutlass and proceeded to rape and pillage the internet for everything it could give....which was a lot. ;)

    Good for you I guess, considering I've only seen those dreadful HK bootlegs of Mazinger Z and there's no Great Mazinger available in english at all beyond episode 21.

    With all the upheaval that went on in the file-hosting world after the megaupload debacle a lot of stuff I got lucky on finding is just not available anymore. I made backups of my backups for things like VOTOMS that were really hard to find fan subs of.
