In December 1972, the anime version premiered on Fuji Television. The TV series ended September 1, 1974.

* ''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'' (in spite of the similar names), 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.

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.
