Mazinger Edition Z is epic

There’s a reason I don’t do many reviews, but once I started this one I wanted to finish it.

This is an true masterpiece of anime! The legend of the unsinkable fortress of steel, which is made of the indestructible Chogokin ZETTO!! Its name is…its name is…its name is Mazinger Edition Z: The Impact!. 

(Probably still better known as Shin Mazinger Shougeki! Z Hen.)

Let’s get the boring stuff out of the way. I bought the DVD release by Eastern Star (Yes, there is one blatant subtitle error.), which has the entire series. The only language option is Japanese and the only subtitle language option is English subtitles, and the only extras are clean openings and endings. The packaging is nice enough.

Sideburns

Another Flash! Friday entry.

Sideburns

Isaac reluctantly got up from his typewriter to see what the noise was about. “Hello, Gentle Non-Reader.”

The monkey climbed up his body and tugged at his sideburns.

“You like those? You’ve got nice ones yourself.”

Isaac sat back down and resumed typing.

“Ook?”

The Gods Themselves.”

“Ook ook eek?!”

“No, it’s not about you. And they say I have ego.”

Someone knocked on the door. Isaac answered it, wondering how he was supposed to get any writing done with so many distractions. It was the man staying next door. “What’s all this noise about?”

“It’s this animal, Mr….”

“Nagai. Do you have a pet monkey?”

“It followed me in from the balcony. Can you help me get it back out? I’ve got deadlines to meet.”

“As do I. And I’m already behind because I was stuck in traffic. If only my car could…”

“Yes?”

“Never mind.” Mr. Nagai looked at the monkey, then Isaac, and said “Nice sideburns.”
