Mazinger Z is back! What has changed in Koji Kabuto’s world since we last saw it? Mazinger Z: Infinity continues the story, and it arrives on Blu-Ray soon.
Go Nagai’s classic manga series, which became an equally revered TV show, was recently given a follow-up movie set ten years after the original series’ conclusion. Mazinger Z: Infinity was screened in theaters in 2018, but in case you missed it, it will soon arrive on disc.
You will not only get the movie, but bonus features including a special behind-the-scenes featurette with interviews of the Japanese production staff and English dub cast, an Ichiro Mizuki music video, Japanese theatrical trailers, and an art gallery. The DVD version will retain the theatrical trailers and the music video.
“Fans have eagerly awaited this home media release ever since VIZ Media presented MAZINGER Z: INFINITY in theaters last year,” says Brian Ige, VIZ Media’s Vice President of Animation. “MAZINGER Z is a revered icon of the super robot anime genre and we invite audiences to add this adventure to their personal home media collections.”
The legendary robot is back! Ten years ago, Koji Kabuto, piloting the super robot Mazinger Z, prevented the villainous scientist Dr. Hell from destroying all of humanity. Since then, Koji has left the pilot seat behind and become a scientist in his own right, following in his father’s and grandfather’s footsteps. Yet an unexpected encounter deep under Mt. Fuji triggers an even greater threat to mankind than ever before and alters Koji’s destiny forever. With humanity’s fate in their hands, Koji and Mazinger Z face a choice between good…and evil!
The English dub includes the voices of Wayne Grayson, Mike Pollock and Dan Green. Mazinger Z: Infinity charges onto Blu-Ray February 19, courtesy of Viz.
