There is no official statement yet released about the Mazinger Z movie. The supposed movie and the hype about came up when CoCoas.Net posted a photo in its Facebook account. Fans have been commenting about the post, and some are actually hoping that it is true.
One fan said that he preferred Mazinger Z than Voltes V. According to him, it?s a great anime, and he?s hoping that if the photo were true, he would be seeing the full cast of the Anime series. He went on naming the characters like ?Sayaka, Prof. Yumi, Aphrodite-A, and even Koji’s brother and the Great Mazinger!?
Looking at the photo below, Mazinger Z could be a better substitute for Pacific Rim 2 since the latter has no certainty of pushing through yet – there were rumors about it but the supposed 2017 release for part 2 hasn?t materialized yet. The storyline of Mazinger Z could guarantee ?real action packed Robot fighting scene with Garada K7 and Doublas,? according to a fan named Gerald Sevilla.

Perhaps, it is time to make another movie of Mazinger Z. Fans are ecstatic about the idea already. For sure, they will be lining up in the cinemas for it. If you check the Toei Animation website, the last Mazinger movie was in 1974. However, Anime News Network has the list of related anime for it. From the list, you can see that latest TV animation was the Mazinger Edition Z: The Impact in 2009.
If you are not familiar with the Mazinger Z background, here?s a plot summary taken from Anime News Network: ?From the island of Bardos in the Aegean Sea comes a new threat to humanity in the form of Doctor Hell and his army of mechanical beasts. However, a new hero stands in his way: Mazinger Z, a giant robot built out of the indestructible metal chogokin and equipped with an arsenal of advanced weaponry.
