    It is now 45 years since the legendary robot–themed anime and manga series "Mazinger Z" first started in 1972. The franchise is about to finally return with a brand new cinematic release called "Theatrical Version: MAZINGER Z / INFINITY," which hits screens nationwide on Saturday 13th January 2018! A special talk with two members of the film's cast, Kappei Yamaguchi (who plays Mucha) and Miku Ito (who voices one of the Mazingirls), was held at the "Kitakyushu Pop Culture Festival 2017" to celebrate the impending release date! During the event, the two voice artists spoke about some of the movie's highlights and aspects of the production that we should keep an eye out for while viewing! Later on in the day there was a special live performance Ichiro Mizuki, an absolute legend in the world of anison (anime songs) who is affectionately known by the nickname "Aniki!"
