For some reason Koji doesn't use it when he could, it makes no sense since technically acid is far more effective than his other moves since you can't exactly block it.
>>
What if Mazinger Z was a girl?
>>
>>13864171
To be fair, a lot of Z's attacks would probabbly cause damage if they hit you, regardless of if you blocked them or not. Waves of fire and beams of photon energy are gonna sting a little unless you're completly immune to them.
>>
>>13864171
It's expensive to refill them?
>>
>>13864182
Mazinger confirmed for first real robot anime.
>>
>>13864186

Toeizinger actually ran out of energy or ammo all the freaking time in the first half of the show at least. Aphrodite A also initially only had two missiles.

Later on she's somehow upgraded to unlimited ammo (it's actually a plot point in an episode) and the Mazinger doesn't run out of energy nearly as much.
>>
>>13864171
You can't block any of Z's moves.
>yeah I'll just block this concentrated beam of photons

You can resist a gunshot wound, but that doesn't mean you blocked it.

But it's not because of Tetsujin 28. The other 27 Tetsujins were used in WWII you know.

Mazinger Z and Gundam both have fantastical tech. They both require maintenance, team support etc. The only difference is that Amuro is a soldier while Kouji is a highschooler.

Wait a minute, that chin...

Someone reasoned to me once that Rust Hurricane is Mazinger hitting you with ionized hydrogen. Which makes enough sense, since it "rusts" things that aren't metal a couple times.
>>
>>13864107
Easy, there would be a lot more Tetsujin and Giant Robo knockoffs.

Good to know that Getter would be safe then
>>
>>13866328
but without mazinger, nagai wouldn't have met ishikawa, and then nagai wouldn't have told him to do an animu with vehicles that can combine and a form a robot
>>
>>13866354

Giant Robo is still the main inspiration for how Getter works, and it doesn't take a genius to think up the idea of ramming three machines together to make bigger machine
>>
>>13866354
They would just be car's instead of planes
>>
>>13866417
That was Nagai's original pitch. Getter wouldn't have existed without Nagai for a few reasons
>Nagai was part of the car accident that inspired Getter and was the one who came up with the combination gimmick
>Nagai pressured Ishikawa into doing a full length serialization despite Ishikawa just wanting to take it easy
>Nagai encouraged Ishikawa to forget about realism when it came to the combination

Take away Mazinger's mouth vents, eyes, chest blades, forearms, and those beam spike thing on the side of his head, and Mazinger would be pretty funny to watch fight.
>>
>>13866490
He'd be the anime equivalent of the Black Knight from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

I bet Mazinger Z would lose to the Gore/Burai hybrid beast from Getter Robo Armageddeon.

>>13866429
>Getter wouldn't have existed without Nagai for a few reasons

Yeah, No.

>Nagai pressured Ishikawa into doing a full length serialization despite Ishikawa just wanting to take it easy
>Nagai encouraged Ishikawa to forget about realism when it came to the combination

These are points against Nagai more than anything else.

>>13866557
I mean, why was Nagai convincing Ishikawa to go bigger with Getter Robo a bad thing?
>>
>>13866623

Waste of time and effort since he was intentionally telling him to make it worse than it could have been.
>>
>>13866710
Okay, but I'm still not sure how convincing him to go bigger with the idea and not to sweat small details that most kids wouldn't give a shit about was a bad thing.

He pretty much said

>Just ignore one of the few parts that matter about any kind of story, and instead of making it a small waste of time, make it a big waste of time
>>
>>13870138
I'm sure realism is very important when writing about some guys in a robot fighting an underground dinosaur empire.
>>
>>13866540
since Rust Hurricane affects organic life just as much as it does metal, it'd probably be very effective against Invader derived lifeforms like that actually(that was actually one of the worst things about Armageddon, Invaders took way too much effort to kill most of the time)
>>
>>13870146

It is, you moron. Realism is always important, and he told him to throw it away when it could have very easily been accomplished in this case.
>>
>>13870164
>It is, you moron. Realism is always important

In this case, it really isn't. There's not much point in adding realism to the robot when it's not present anywhere else in the story.
>>
>>13870154
>Invaders took way too much effort to kill most of the time
Not really
>>
>>13870219
>when it's not present anywhere else in the story
>I have not read, watched, or looked into the thing I'm talking about at all
Good going, moron. This goes for literally any story, by the way.
>>
>>13873965

Not him but there's a difference between realism and verisimilitude. It doesn't have to be realistic, it just has to feel real in the context of the story.

Otherwise it's impossible to like mecha.
