YMMV / Mazinkaiser

Go To

  • 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.
  • Best Known for the Fanservice: Despite being a bit character, the scene where Lori is introduced in her extremely revealing sling bikini in episode 4 has become a somewhat viral gif, especially on ecchi forums.
  • 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.

  • Tear Jerker: Several parts of the General of Darkness movie. Specially this continuity's rendition of Dr. Morimori's Heroic Sacrifice, Lori and Loru's horrifying Family Unfriendly Deaths, and towards the end Kouji's incredibly heartfelt Manly Tears when he defeats the Big Bad and says he's avenged his fallen friends.


How well does it match the trope?
