Crazy how people loved him when he was Misogynistic, who treated Sayaka like shit and had lots of anti-woman comments in Mazinger Z, but hated him in Grendizer when he treated the girls like a gentleman and had actual romance with them

People always point this out but no one ever acknowledges that he later recants on all these ideas. Later in the series he was one of the people pushing for Diana A to become a combat mech. You suck op. Try actually watching shit.

A lot of his fights with Sayaka were hormones out of control. And she fights back too. Also he's a dick towards Boss a few times as well, so it's not that he was misogynistic, it's that he was young and stupid.
He does get better at the end of the series, they all do.

Mazinger Z is a product of its time where Japan thought women are worthless outside kitchen.
It wasn't about story telling since it's a show about a robot fighting evil robots with basic minimal story (evil dude wants world domination).

Amuro briefly took on a mentor role and was whooping enemies that gave Kamille and Quattro trouble, adeabook was also the mentor and was the better fighter for all of Crossbone and the field leader if the crossbo e vanguard. Neither man was put in a useless dinky machine like TFO or a simple support machine like the Double Spazer, Amuro didn't fly the G-Defensor for Kamille. So I'd say that helped, just cause they weren't MC's didn't mean they were "sidekicks"

and everytime she does, Koji, her father and the scientists tell her that she will never be married because she's not a ladylike lol watch the show instead of defending it blindly

Amuro was demoted to use a Dijeh which is far less useful and cool than a Gundam. he also was afraid of space
>>
>>22648548
>I am going to pretend I don't understand what jokes are

>>22648557
The Dijeh isn't really worse than the MK-II and he gets over the fear of space.
>>
>>22648557
The Dijeh is a probably a better unit than the MK-II and is at worst on par with the Hyaku Shiki at least it's still an MS unlike the Double Spazer being a support craft not a combat Robot. Amuro also was willing to return to space at the end of the first earth arc but they could only launch one and he prioritized Kamille over himself
>>
>>22648508
> a simple support machine like the Double Spazer,
And yet he saved Grendizer many times using it.

Was blown away by how much warmer the scarier-looking Kenzo was as a character than Yumi. I'm also not sure whether it was coincidental that Kenzo surrenders way more often, whereas Yumi was a bit more open to last-standing or suicide. Maybe it just means the Mycenae are terrifying, but I'd like to think that Kenzo surrenders more often because he simply cares deeply about his family. Not sure why he's depicted as such a grim hardass in every other continuity.

You know what would be kinda fun? If there was a series where Koji got the Mazinkaiser, but it's by the time he's well into adulthood like in Infinity, and so rather than letting Z rot in a hangar, Shiro inherits Mazinger Z and kicks ass side by side with his older brother.

I won't lie, I did this exact thing in SRW 30, but seeing an official piece of media do it would make me hella giddy.

Have you actually read Crossbone? Tobia is very much is the sidekick character for pretty much the whole manga, until he gets the X-3 in the second to last volume. Him getting the X-1 handed down to him happens in a separate sequel manga.

Sayaka got unnerved in general due to Kouji not needing her help anymore. Yeah, Kouji's arrogant attitude is part of it, but in some episodes (like when she attempts to sabotage the scrander alongside Boss) there was no real specific incident leading to Sayaka's anger, just her disliking how the situation turned out in general lines.
>>
>>22655280
>like when she attempts to sabotage the scrander alongside Boss
Are you sure you're not conflating this with her supporting the creation of Borot, or the stealing the Scrander, because iirc it was Nuke and Mucha stealing it for Boss. Or maybe that was photonic energy
Generally Sayaka sided with Boss over Koji when it felt like they weren't being treated seriously or with respect, which ultimately came down to them just wanting to be relied on more, because they genuinely want to help
>>
>>22655280
That's called jealousy, which also exists in men.
Koji in the other hand, was very exist, and downright called Sayaka and her Aphrodite useless several times.
Early episodes had him make fun of Sayaka every time she got down by enemy mechs

Wasn't the whole point that Koji and Sayaka were both equally little shits, just that Sayaka was more smug and prideful and spoiled, granted Nagai (and TOEI) really make them into lunatics who just fight even at times that is not called because of the Japanese Boomersaur phase of ''TEENAGERS, IMMA RIGHT''?

Lots of 60s and 70s works loved to portray japanese teens in a negative light, in spite of the fact that the main reason they were rebellious was, well, because japanese parenting was fucking shit and adult authorities were kinda dickbags??

Reminder that Great Mazinger is not canon to the shonen jump version and follows the alternate ending writen for the mazinger z tv magazine version which showed a different death for dr hell and featured the appearance of great mazinger.
The shonen jump version was also collected in a proper format in the latest version, which was also released recently in spain and repurposed some of the tv magazine chapters with some additions and changes making those versions of them canon to it and finally features the full ending with an extra epilogue.
Here are videos showing the three volumes (in spanish):

Nagai's Great Mazinger manga starts with Mazinger Z defeated (last episode from the show).
just because Z wasn't defeated at the end of its original manga doesn't mean Great isn't canon

Been meaning forever to translate them from Italian/Spanish/French into English, as frowned-upon as that is. Have a lot of the raw text on-hand, just never got around to picking a good font.
Alternatively you can just feed the pages into google or yandex for some crabsticks
>>
>>22664981
>just because Z wasn't defeated at the end of its original manga doesn't mean Great isn't canon
The thing is that the scene where Z is defeated and Great appeared was actually from the very same chapter of the tv magazine version of Z that has the alternate ending where dr hell is killed differently, so it's literally incompatible with the shonen jump version. Here is a link containg it from an italian edition which has all the tv magazine version:
https://litter.catbox.moe/iu7kn1.7z
>>
>>22664777
>>22664796
Tbf, that's probably because he cared more about his original version of Mazinger Z (which was cancelled against his wishes) and cared more about giving that version an actual end.
Great probably made more as a promotional manga for the anime the same way he did with grendizer.
>>
>>22665115
Didn't know it had an alternate ending. Just as lame as the anime version.
>>
>>22665183
It's much worse than the anime version. At least there the Mazinger Z was all damaged by the time it took down Dr.Hell, which leads directly into the next episode when it's in a pretty bad state already even before getting to fight against the Mycenae.
>>
Could someone explain the Nagai/Magazine/Jump reading orders as if I were retarded, I just went with what was on mangadex and assumed that was the proper order
>>
>>22665204
That version has the order fucked up.
If you see Boss Borot or Diana A it's from the tv magazine.
If you want a coherent version you have to either read the versions that either contain only the jump chapters or that contain both versions but fully separated, or you can watch on youtube the version that incorporates/repurposes some of the tv magazine chapters but with changes and aditions into the jump version making those specific versions of those chapters fit that i posted here >>22659317 (which sadly no one has scanned anywhere).
Either way unfortunately if you don't know spanish, japanese or italian you're fucked.
>>
>>22665204

it's still MOTW format so there's no reason to read in specific order

Yeah, but he did say in an interview that he always regretted not giving the original Mazinger Z manga a proper ending.

The tv original stuff was mostly Toei. They did go back and adapt the Lorelei story though, and the general set up isn't very different from the manga's unlike Getter's, but all the anime specific stuff (like Kouji and Sayaka constantly bickering, most monsters of the week plots, the Mazinger slowly getting extra weapons rather than them coming by default outside of the Scrander) was just by the Toei staff which is why you don't see it in other versions.

I'm willing to overlook the fact that a backpack would be tedious for animating but it's supposed to be there, but do the design sheets or anything have the wings in its non-default configuration?

If you asked me who I'd assume to be more sympathetic, Yumi or Kenzo, I would not have picked Kenzo.

Anime original stuff like Boss Borot, Sayaka getting mechs other than Aphrodite, the Scrander being a mid season upgrade rather than end game, and henchmen from Dr. Hell other than Brocken and Ashura have made it to other media, but you're not getting the ''arms race'' structure the Toei anime has anywhere else
>>
>>22670288
>end game
A bit odd to make the Scrandar appear at the tail end of the manga's run instead of the halfway point.
>>
>>22670288
The supporting cast is really endearing, I don't know whether I'd like the Scrander as a mid or final upgrade but I'm leaning towards favouring what the show did.
>henchmen from Dr. Hell other than Brocken and Ashura
Isn't that um, singularly Viscount Pygman, anon? He wasn't a bad part of the show or cast but he was definitely weaker.
>arms race
This was a highlight of Toeizinger and I sort of feel something like this somewhat in Great as well, with the army and intelligence branches bickering but trying different approaches and it feeling like they're coming up with different strategies, the Institute and Mycenae being somewhat aware of what the other is thinking (e.g. new tactics might mean a new Mycenae commander, the Institute will probably deploy Venus first and leave Great to protect the Institute unless he's baited).
Could you tell me if Grendizer has anything similar as well? The worst-case, making it just a mediocre show, would be
>Spazers are introduced and developed sort of randomly, with no great prior need for it, and the first few episodes after their debut all coincidentally need their sudden use even though there weren't really that many airborne/aquatic/underground saucer beasts before
>the different commanders all hate each other but their tactics against Grendizer or their methods against each other aren't really notable
It's a beloved show with more episodes than Great, so it had to have improved on Z and Great, right?

I didn't know how to feel about the fake-out a few episodes prior, whether the intention was to test or tease Koji's return, or just have a fun and silly trick, but I really liked this scene. It shows how missed Koji was and how needed he was at the time, and he's seen enough shit to understand what the situation is like.
Another shout-out to Shiro and Robot Junior for never like, being an excessively major burden. Kenzo had to go out and rescue him once, but generally he (and the show-writers) really know when he should deploy and when he should stay in the base.

Great's finale was wonderful but painful, I was too emotionally invested in the characters to wonder or care about what happened to the Emperor. Just wish there was a canon or acceptable explanation, fancomic, 4koma, or even scribble on a napkin to explain the aftermath before Grendizer.
