"By Federico Luciani"

During a traffic jam, in april 1972, a young mangaka said "If a car had arms, and legs… There will be no problems such this !". He was called Go Nagai. He had already worked for his friend Ken ariga, a manager at Toei doga drawing "Devilman" (or better, I think it was Mao Dante) and his brothers worked for Dynamic Production. The were looking for something new, after a long, unlucky time. Go called this robot "Iron Z". It was created by professor Akagane for a special laboratory (inspired by Ultraman) to fight against Dr. Hell's creatures (You know this part of the story). His pilot (helped by Sayaka Yumi on Iron A) was called Susumu Kaze, wich was riding a motorcycle called the Pilder, and climbed the robot by riding on a kind of cape on the back of the robot. After a short time Nagai thought to change his robot into a super robot, and he added two ideas, Japanium and Photo Atomic Energy (In this moment I can't remember if it was the English name too) (well, Iron A was created in this period, too). Fuji TV would have broadcast this anime on sunday evenings, at 7.00 pm, helped in production by Asatsu Agency. But they wanted to call it "Energer Z". At last Go Nagai decided for…Well, You know ! They changed the Motorcycle with the Hover Pilder, too, to avoid any confusion with Kamen Rider. This changed Mazinger's head, too. They started publishing it on Shonen Jump, but before it they changed Susumu in Koji, and Akagane with Yumi, father of Sayaka. The robot was no more created by Yumi, but by Koji's grandfather, at first a kind of mad scientist with a deformed face, then a nice and peaceful old granny… They introduced also, for kids, Boss and Shiro. Iron A became a peaceful robot, Aphrodite A.

They had still to decide how to colour this characters. (Manga was in Black & White). Here in Italy we say "then any colour was seen", i.e. happened almost everything about it. At first, Mazinger had flat feets, a longer armour, eyes sublined by red stripes and, sometimes, a blue Pilder, or a Pilder with a yellow tail. Aphrodite's head was at first green, then brown and only at last red, and a bigger crane. Ashura's cape was pink and purple, and his face was all made of living, pink flesh. Boss Robt was at first green and blue, too, with brown and yellow arms. Koji wore a scarf, and Sayaka had only after a few weeks his yellow pants and jacket. On December 8th they started broadcasting, but still the toon was designed by a lot of different laboratories, because Toei doga's workers were on strike. So Laser Beams from the eyes were at first red, sometimes it had a kind of gas as Breast Fire, or white punches (sometimes, white or blue in different scenes of the same episode.), or square foots, or four holes in his mouth… This lasted for 13 episodes, but people already loved it…It had a share of 30% on episode 68, with duke Gorgon (still I don't remember if it was his real name), one of the highest audiences of all times in Japan.
