Shin Mazinger Zero is a manga that was released at nearly the same time as the anime [[Shin Mazinger Shougeki! Z-hen]] in the magazine Champion Red. Despite the similar titles, it has no connection to the anime. However, it does have a connection to the original Mazinger Z anime, as Minerva X is shown to be a Reincarnation of the robot with the same name from that show.
