In the US, ''Mazinger Z'' was aired under the title ''Tranzor Z'' as a response to the popularity of ''Anime/{{Voltron}}''. In this dub, Koji became "Tommy" and Sayaka was "Jessica." It was later given a shorter, but more faithful dub run commissioned by {{Toei}}. The Toei dub was hugely popular in the Philippines before Ferdinand Marcos ordered it off the air, and some episodes were released on VHS in the U.K.; before ''Tranzor Z'', snippets of this dub had been aired in the U.S. on a Christian Broadcasting Network public-affairs program about Japan. And finally, in 2012, [[http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2012-10-06/discotek-adds-mazinger-z-super-robot-tv-anime it was announced]] by Creator/DiscotekMedia that they will be releasing the full, uncut, subtitled 1970s anime series in 2013. The fans went completely insane.

* ''ShinMazingerZero'': Shin Mazinger Zero is a manga that was released in 2009 in the magazine Champion Red, created by Creator/GoNagai and YoshiakiTabata. It has no connection with ''Anime/ShinMazinger'', but it is connected with the original anime, and in a nutshell is what you have when the ''Anime/MazingerZ'' original manga meets ''Anime/NeonGenesisEvangelion''. The manga is nine-volume-long and a sequel is being published.

It must be stated that, due to the move from Shonen Jump to Kodansha TV Magazine, there are ''two'' different tankobon releases compiling the original Creator/GoNagai manga. The Sueisha release compiles chapters that are missing in the Kodansha edition and vice versa, and some chapters are not recompilated in any of them. And neither of them has the chapters chronologically arranged. Nonetheless, an Italian publishing house published an "edizione integrale" (comprehensive compilation) several years ago, recompilating ALL chapters and arranging them according to chronological order.
