It’s a Go Nagai kind of year, so it makes perfect sense to have back-to-back stories related to the manga master. This one concerns anime film Mazinger Z: Infinity, which Viz Media, Toei, and Fathom Events are bringing to select theaters throughout the United States for a two-night-only presentation on February 11 and 12.
Ticket sales and a list of theaters are now live on the Fathom Events website. Both showings will be in Japanese with English subtitles, and those who attend will have the chance to receive an exclusive mini-poster while supplies last.
Here’s the official trailer:
Ten years ago, the villainous scientist Dr. Hell led his wicked followers, known as the Underground Empire, in a struggle to destroy all of humanity. It was against these forces that the young hero Koji Kabuto fought, piloting the legendary super robot “Mazinger Z.” Koji’s victory stopped Dr. Hell’s evil plan and returned peace to the Earth.
Now Koji has left the pilot seat behind and become a scientist in his own right, following in his father’s and grandfather’s footsteps. Yet an unexpected encounter deep under Mt. Fuji triggers an even greater threat to mankind than ever before and alters Koji’s destiny forever. With humanity’s fate in their hands, Koji and Mazinger Z face a choice between good…and evil.
