The duo's previous Shin Mazinger Zero manga ended in the current Champion RED issue on Monday. They began collaborating on this manga in the same magazine in 2009, the same year that the Shin Mazinger Shōgeki! Z-Hen anime remake debuted.
Go Nagai's original Mazinger Z manga launched in 1972 and spawned several anime and manga project over the decades. Both the original manga and Shin Mazinger Zero follow Kōji Kabuto in his super robot Mazinger Z as he battles Dr. Hell, a mad scientist bent on world domination.
Ankoku Daishōgun is best known as a major antagonist in the 1974-75 Great Mazinger sequel anime. Mazinger Z had previously faced off against Ankoku Daishōgun in the 1974 movie Mazinger Z tai Ankoku Daishōgun, which inspired the 2003 video anime remake Mazinkaiser: Shitou! Ankoku Daishogun.
The Shin Mazinger Zero creative team also worked together on the science-fiction vigilante story Akumetsu and the Wolf guy - Wolfen crest manga series.
