Go Nagai is an early pioneer of mecha anime, who continues his work today. Although Tetsujin 28, (Gigantor in the US), was the first "super robot", Go Nagai set the standard for giant robot anime when he put the pilot inside the robot for the first time with Mazinger Z in 1972. Less than 2 years later he pioneered another mecha concept with his assistant Ken Ishikawa, combining robots, with Getter Robo in 1974. Although Osamu Tezuka first introduced the idea of combining robots in an Astro Boy story back in 1963, it wasn't until Getter Robo that the idea became truly popularized. Both Mazinger and Getter Robo have continued in various incarnations to this day as some of Dynamic Production's most famous Mecha stories.
