Review: Mazinkaizer SKL

The latest installment of one of the most popular Anime series around the world. Above Japan waits Remuria, a colossal floating islandleftover from the last world war. It s a lawless wasteland of robot super-weapons from a forgotten age of military might. Receiving word that the unstable island s reactors might explode and vaporize Japan at any time, the Japanese government awakens the most destructive force ever devised MazinKaiser!

This 3 episode OVA is AWESOME, no other words can describe it. The story of this OVA is very weak and there’s barely any character development, but what this OVA lacks in story and character development, it makes up for with probably the Most Awesome Mecha fight scenes that are almost as amazing as the mecha fight scenes in Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann. The story here is really just an excuse to show these Awesome fight scenes and that alone is enough to overlook the OVA’s flaws and consider it to be one of the best OVAs I have seen in a while.. Now if you want a mecha show that has a deep story with strong character development and where the Mech’s have a more significant meaning to the show’s story, then this OVA is not for you, but if you want some Hardcore Mech fight scenes, than this OVA is definitely for you. Now I remember why I loved Mazinger Z, Mazinkaiser, and Grendaizer as a kid, these amazing fights make me want to jump right into the robot. Lets hope they come up with a continuation or more episodes.

Great Mazinger 1969

I think everyone knows how Mazinger is, well at least the kids from the 80s do but he has crossed many generations and I think we are especially familiar with him in Kuwait. Now that I managed to get my hands on a Fewture Great Mazinger 1969 Model, I was very excited, for those who don’t know Fewture makes THE coolest models, and they are almost all metal and are very high quality. I have this model for sometime but I wanted to place him in the perfect spot, somewhere I would see every day and enjoy it.

It took me about 30 minutes to unbox, clean, and put him together while taking the photographs and I think in my head I was waiting for him to come alive and to become a real gigantic robot, I still have a notion that one day I will be piloting a super robot. From my previous posts I have the Senshiro Jumaro Model and Ghost In The Shell – Tachikoma which is still one of my favorites.
