The final battle of Shin Mazinger Z is so awesome that not only does it span the final five episodes of the series, it wraps around and reaches its ultimate conclusion in parts of episodes 1 and 2. And it’s not like the Shingeki type of long battle where it takes forever because nothing happens. There’s amazing stuff going on pretty much constantly, wherever you look, from all characters.

Kouji sallies forth!

The entire photon laboratory becomes a battlestation!
The entire Bardos Island becomes a giant robot!
The Mazinger Army is reborn a hundredfold!
Tsubasa faces off with the husband she thought she’d lost, and all secrets are revealed!
Ashura betrays Dr. Hell!
Rocket punches rain from the sky!
It’s the One-Hundred Rocket Punch Barrage!
Mazinger and Zeus team up once more to unleash a final Big Bang Punch! The wrath of the gods is unleashed!
The King of Hell is blown to bits! Dr. Hell is defeated! The world is saved!
Thank you, Mazinger! What an awesome ending to such an awesome show! HOTBLOOD all around!
