Rocket punch! Fans of classic Seventies super robot anime will be happy to learn that a new theatrical anime film based on Go Nagai’s hot-blooded mecha manga and TV anime, Mazinger Z, is in development.
Presently, the official website for the project only features a black background and an animated image of Mazinger’s chestplates wreathed in CGI fire.
No further details about the production (such as the cast, the staff, and the release date) have yet been announced. A special stage event with more details about the Mazinger Z movie project is scheduled to run from 11:35 AM – 12:15 PM JST on March 26, 2017, on the Blue Stage at the AnimeJapan 2017 convention.
AnimeJapan 2017 runs from March 25 – March 26, 2017, at the Tokyo Big Sight venue in Koto Ward, Tokyo, Japan.
