God Mazinger chapter 1


I wanted to have this out a few days ago, but work interfered...long and short of it...we owe a huge thanks to Dynamic Pro for this. As you may know, the raws out now for God Mazinger are utter shit. So a while ago, we bought new ones and Dynamic Pro was kind enough to scan them in! It's from the two volume version, which isn't available online, and it looks fantastic. We also bought raws for Mao Dante's remake, as well as Dynamic Heroes...so we plan to get to this soon, along with more Violence Jack in progress! And another Ishikawa series!
  
So, the plot...well, it's Nagai's fetishes on dsplay in total: Beautiful women, easily embarrassed schoolgirls, jackass 'heroes'....giant robots, evil monsters, psychic powers and ancient civilizations (Seriously, what IS it with him and psychic powers and ancient civilizations?) Yamato Hino, a highschool asshole with psychic powers is...called through time and space to the lost civilization of Lemuria, or Mu, where...well, you'll have to see.

Now, some have asked us about some of our other old favorites, so I want to promise something: Ishinomori, Yokoyama, Matsumoto? NOT forgotten, at all. We have more of that coming in the future. In fact, for shorter Ishinomori series, I have a few in mind, as well as more short Matsumoto (How's Queen of a Thousand Years and Battleship Yamato grab ya?). Hox and I have a few more Yasuhikos for the future planned as well...so it's just a matter of time and resource on this.

Anyways...God Mazinger Chapter 1! Enjoy!

EDIT: Fixed up a few pages. IE: the opening painted pages

  2. Wow! Not to start a rivalry, but it's amazing how much better your translation is than XPearse's. (I must say, the scans he used for the painted pages look much better - yours are too dark)

    And I'm SUPER excited for more Matsumoto!! Amazing!!!

    1. I think you might be right. I'll have to fix the painted ones for the volume release. Will release a 2nd edition of this chapter.
