    Yay!

    It's based on a 1998 manga retelling of Mazinger Z that updates the story and adds in more Greek mythology - Dr Hell is the incarnation of Hades, Z Mazinger is Zeus, etc.

    I just hope it goes for the full-out hot-blooded spirit of the original and the better episodes of Mazinkaiser.

    Wow. I thought you had mistakenly put the Z in the wrong place. But thats the actual name :lol . Looks interesting. I'll keep a look out for this one.

    I never even HEARD of Z Mazinger, but you can never go wrong with giant super robots and rocket punches. What're the key differences?

    I'm in silent protest over the fact Aphrodite A now has boob guns instead of boob missiles. Total travesty.
















    :wink: 
    I'm mostly withhold serious comment until the show starts, but I'm looking forward to it.

    I watched the raw, yesterday. I don't have a clue what was going on, but it looked awesome. Gattai already has a sub out. I'm hoping it'll make more sense, if I can understand what's being said.

    I love that new Boss Borot.

    Subtitles on that Gattai file are not working, for me. Dunno if it's the file, or something to do with my system.

    Yeah im on the same boat. I have no idea whats going on, except it had cameos and reference of a multiple Go Nagai series, like Violence Jack, Groizer X, Great Mazinger, Demon Lord Dante, among others. Heck even Cutie Honey! (the bg music heard when Koji calls for his God Scrander)

    Nice! Im gonna D/L these later

    Looking at the file description it seems its a Matroska coded video. Have you used these before? with the correct codecs a green arrow appears on the task bar, where you can select the subs
