Toei Animation’s official YouTube channel recently uploaded a new trailer for the Mazinger Z anime film. This trailer not only reveals the official title for the film being Mazinger Z: Infinity, but also previews prolific singer Ichiro Mizuki (Voicelugger Gold from Voicelugger, Saburo Hazuki from Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters, Custom Visor (Voice) from Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters) singing a new rendition of the original Mazinger Z anime’s opening theme (also sung by him) for the film.
The film’s plot is described below:
Humanity was once in danger of its downfall at the hands of the Underground Empire, which was led by the evil scientist Dr. Hell. Koji Kabuto piloted the super robot Mazinger Z, and with help from his friends at the Photon Power Laboratory, he thwarted Dr. Hell’s evil ambitions and returned peace to the world.
It’s been ten years since then… No longer a pilot, Koji Kabuto has taken after his father and grandfather by starting down the path of the scientist. He encounters a gigantic structure buried deep beneath Mt. Fuji, along with a mysterious indication of life…
New encounters, new threats, and a new fate await mankind. The former hero Koji Kabuto has a decision to make about the future: whether to be a god or a devil…
This grand action film depicts the fierce battle fought by the people and Mazinger Z–once again entrusted with the future of mankind!
