CB Chara Go Nagai World (Chibi Character's Go Nagai's world) Often just called Go Nagai World, is a three episode original video animation (OVA) released Febuary 21, 1991 and ended in June 1992. Outside Japan the OVA was only released in Italy as "Il pazzo mondo di Go Nagai" (Go Nagai's Crazy World). It is also one of the very few shows featuring Violence Jack in an animated form rather than on paper.
The anime itself is a self parody of the various manga works of Go Nagai. (Implying his manga are not already parodies of themselves by default) While it also features a handful other works of Nagai going under; Great Mazinger, UFO Robo Grendizer, and even going as far as Ken Ishikawa's Getter Robo. It's main focus seems to be featuring his big three; starting with his die-hard classic known as Devilman appearing in the first OVA, while Mazinger Z featuring in the second, and ending with introduction of a controversially decresed version of Violence Jack.
- Confirmed conspiration
While there were many theories out there by fans of Devilman and Violence Jack saying that the two were one person, it was finally officially confirmed in the third episode.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
The anime seems to try not to answer the question of who is stronger between Devilman or Mazinger Z. When fighting Satan, Mazinger withstood the slash attack that split Devilman in half. Yet the slash against Mazinger was from Satan's Ryo Asuka forme which Psycho Jenny says is less powerful. Also, Devilman is able to knock Satan off balance with a tackle while Mazinger Z's Koshiryoku Beam did nothing. Although it was a blind spot strike by Devilman and Satan is made of Photons like Jiro Shutendo. Also Mazinger Z was able to stop Satan's attack by self detonating. Said attack game Satan amnesia and returned him to his Ryo forme. Although it did result in the destruction of Mazinger Z. Each time one seems to come ahead, theres always an asterisk.
