    "Mazin Go!" - Koji Kabuto

    In one of their epic battles, the Mazinger Team suffers a crushing defeat at the hands of Dr. Hell and his minions after Mazinger Z is stolen and its pilot, the legendary Koji Kabuto, is rendered missing in action. Just when Dr. Hell's second-in-command Baron Ashura (yeah, the villain who's literally half-male and half-female) uses Mazinger Z against our heroes, Koji makes a surprise return in Mazinkaiser - an all-new Mazinger with heavier armor and deadlier attacks.

    Story: B
    I was seriously into this series during the first two episodes, but episodes 3-4 got pretty lame with all the gratuitous fan service. Really unnecessary, even if most of creator Go Nagai's works are hentai-oriented.

    Animation: B+
    I would've given Mazinkaiser an A+, but episode 4 had really goofy artwork and animation. Aside from that, the mecha designs are awesome.

    The opening sequence looks cool, but it makes you think the animators have been watching too many Duran Duran videos.

    Soundtrack: A-
    Mazinkaiser uses an impressive orchestral score reminiscent of Giant Robo. The opening theme, "Fire Wars" by JAM Project, absolutely rocks.

    The Bottom Line
    Despite all the raunchy fan service, Mazinger is back, big-time. Now for a Mazinkaiser vs. Shin Getter Robo anime...
