YMMV: Mazinkaiser

  • Awesome Music: Considering its opening and ending themes are perfored by JAM Project, enough said.
    • Even still, "Fire Wars" must be mentioned for being quite possibly the most Hot-Blooded song the group has ever churned out.
    • Let's not forget the awesome Majin Kenzan!! insert song in the movie, accompanying Mazinkaiser's triumphant return to Earth, and the ensuing Curb-Stomp Battle it inflicts thereafter (see Dynamic Entry on the main page).
    • "Theme of Mazinkaiser" by JAM Project founder (and singer of the original Mazinger Z theme) Ichiro Mizuki
    • The ED, "Tornado", is also by JAM Project, and is also awesome.
  • God-Mode Sue: The titular machine, because nothing can destroy it, not even drowning it in molten lava. One of the few Humongous Mecha to never gets its paintjob scratched, too.
    • Although its Super Mode takes a while to control and Kouji Kabuto does have lots of trouble with it at first, nearly destroying the Photonic Research Institute and the Great Mazinger and seriously injuring Tetsuya Tsurugi during its rampage.
  • Narm: When Kouji and the Hover Pilder are ripped out of the Mazinger Z and thrown into the sky, does this remind you of a certain Team Rocket Running Gag?
  • Rule of Funny: Mazinkaiser applied principles of this (such as having mecha lip-synching with its pilots) to Humongous Mecha years before Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann did roughly the same.
  • Superlative Dubbing: while there are a few pronunciation-emphasis problems in the dub, (Sa-YA-ka, Ka-BU-to, Ma-ZIN-ger, etc), the acting overall is excellent; in particular, Robert Newell and John Paul Shepard are nearly perfect in their respective roles of Koji and Dr. Hell.
