Forgive me for once again plugging the April 4th debut of Shin Mazinger Shougeki! Z-Hen, the King of Cartoons, but I just had an observation to make. The new Pilder sequence makes no sense. And that is awesome.
You have to understand the way Mazinger should work. It's implausible, sure, but for Mazinger-land it makes some immediate sense. The motionless robot gets lifted on an elevator up out of a pool, and Kouji gets in his Hover Pilder, flies up into the robot's head, and lowers it in, yelling PILDER OOOON.
In Shin Mazinger, no thank you, sir: the robot is posing in time with Kouji's yell even though there is clearly nobody inside it to control it (note the empty space where the Pilder should be). Then the Pilder On bit follows, except Kouji flies up into the air and then just drops while Mazinger holds its head in place to accept its own robotic brain. And then it turns on!
I love that Imagawa's taken something that made little sense, and instead of trying to explain it or simply changing it to something explainable, embraced the true spirt of the thing and made it make less sense. Way less. Get hype.
