Let’s start off with this… and yes. Turbo Smasher Punch is back, baby!
And now the voice cast, which I can assure you is nothing like any of the past Mazinger series.
Satoshi Hino as Ryō Magami
Shintaro Asanuma as Ken Kaidō
Atsuko Tanaka as Aira
Banjou Ginga as Garan
Kikuko Inoue as Himiko
Nobuyuki Hiyama as Kiba
Saori Hayami as Tsubasa Yuki
Yes, Satoshi Hino, aka Saito from Zero no Tsukaima and Yuuji from Shana. Shintaro Asanuma’s latest role is Tsuda-kun from the ongoing Seitokai Yakuindomo. Remember the spineless guy who was always getting sexually harassed by Shino and Aria? Yeah, that’s him.
That’s quite a formidable combination we have there, right off the bat. These are the two lucky guys who will be piloting Mazinkaiser SKL and raping faces with the super robot.
Then we have Kikuko Inoue and Hayami Saori, both of whom are seiyuus that I really like. And finally, we have the King of Braves himself, NOBUYUKI HIYAMA. I don’t care if he is playing a good guy or a bad guy, he makes the show more awesome just by being in it. You don’t go wrong with Nobuyuki Hiyama in a Super Robot show. You simply don’t.
The first episode of Mazinkaiser SKL will be released by the end of this year. I can feel the hot blood pumping in my veins already.
This is Julius Firefocht, signing off.
