メカ娘/Mecha Musume - a concept as old as time itself (okay, maybe not exactly) which combines the epicness of giant robots with the adorable-factor of anime girls, mashing them together into a quirky, yet somehow intriguing little sub-genre of its own.

Initially popularised by the works of Gundam Girls, Mecha Musume has lived on for decades now with its own niche.

Now, Toei Animation is on its way to giving Mecha Musume fans a new offering, by moe-fying their own array of robots. It's none other than Robot Girls Z!

Starring 3 would-be heroines; Z-chan (based on Mazinger Z), Gre-chan (based on UFO Robo Grendizer) and Garada-chan (based on Garada K7); these overly-enthusiastic girls fight any small-time villain to protect their dear home of Photon Power Town.

Full of slice-of-life gags, classic robot anime references, and tons of in-jokes, Robot Girls Z is guaranteed to give just about anyone a good laugh - with bonuses for robot anime fans of course!

The show will be split into nine 10-minute shorts and streamed on the Toei Channel. Lucky for us, the promotional video 'Episode 0' is also available on YouTube!

Will the town be saved…or will the Robot Girls pulverise it in their attempts to protect it in the first place?? Either way, it's going to be hilarious!
