The protagonists of Team Z will appear in the new shorts, along with the reformed Team G, Team LOD with new members, Team Gō, and characters who first appeared in the franchise's online game. The new shorts' story will be based on two classic "Toei Manga Matsuri" films, Great Mazinger tai Getter Robo (Great Mazinger Vs. Getter Robo) and Great Mazinger tai Getter Robo G - Kuuchuu Dai-Gekitotsu (Great Mazinger Vs. Getter Robo G - The Great Space Encounter).

The returning and new cast members include:

Ayana Taketatsu as Bossborokko

The returning staff include:

The Robot Girls Z anime is the current incarnation of Toei Robot Girls, the project that turns Dynamic Planning and Toei Animation's "legendary super robots into beautiful girls!!"

The stars of Robot Girls Z series are Z-chan, Gre-chan, and Grenda-san. Together they (try to) defend Photon Power Town from "the enemy, the mechanical beast girls of the underground empire." The villains are led by Baron Ashura, the underground emperor "bent on world domination(?)" — or at least, town domination.

Crunchyroll streamed the first series as it ran in Japan last year. The television anime spawned a compilation movie last May.
