  • show Description
  • Every one thousand years, one hundred mamodos (demons) descend upon earth to conduct the ultimate battle. The winning mamodo becomes the mighty king of the mamodo world. There is only one problem - in order for the mamodo to use their powerful spell books, they need a human partner. If his spell book is destroyed, the mamodo disintegrates and returns to the mamodo world. Kiyo is a brilliant but aloof 14-year-old boy in junior high school. While exploring a rainforest in England, Kiyo's archaeologist father discovers Zatch, an unconscious mamodo child. He sends the goodhearted and mysterious Zatch to be his son's mentor. Zatch has amnesia; he does not have any idea that he is indeed a powerful mamodo! It is up to Kiyo and Zatch to discover this together. The unsuspecting Zatch and Kiyo must defend themselves against the relentless ambush of mamodo-king wannabees. And unbeknownst to the attackers, Zatch and Kiyo have formed a special bond which enables them to unleash Zatch's incredible powers. Season 1 Zatch and Kiyo are new to the mamodo battle and they learn that there is a battle every one thousand years and learn that from Sherry and Brago and along the way they face against strong mamodo and also befreind them on there way to becoming the next mamodo king.

    • Toonami used the title "Recap Special" for this episode.

    • The Flashbacks they incounter are from the following episodes. The Lightning Boy From Another World The Second Spell The Third Spell Sherry's Rhapsody of Life Appolo The Free Traveler (Part 2) Go For It, Ponygon! A Kind Mamodo, Kolulu London Calling The Great Mamodo Battle The Mystery of the Missing Red Book Botanical Madness The Elite Mamodo The Invicible Folgore The Rematch: Zatch and Hyde Meet Again The Tom Boy and the Pop Star A New Pledge Between Zatch and Tia The Invulnerable Robnos Kiyo's Curry Camping Trip The Dark Lord of the Cursed Castle Flowers of Evil Another Zatch The Dancing Mamodo

    • Look carefully at the clip with Aijikawa and Rekom. Aijikawa's gun has been changed into something like a blue super soaker., something you would see from One Piece. Before it was an ugly looking gun, resembling a laser gun.

    • On the flashback that showed Sherry and Brago battle Periko and Pokkerio, if you listen closely, when Brago creates the Gigano Reis, it sounded like Sherry said Rais.

    • This retrospective special was created by Viz Media just for their English version of the show. It does not appear anywhere in "Konjiki no Gash Bell", the original Japanese version.

    Trivia (89)

    • One of the flashbacks show Sherry and Brago battle Periko and Pokkerio. How can Kiyo and Zatch remember that when they never seen that battle? (response: It was more than likely an oversight on Viz Media's part)

    • In the origianl Japanese version, Zatch's voice actor was female, yet in the English version, it is also a female voice actor. In other words, VIZ Media and ShoPro kept the tradition of using a female voice actor to voice Zatch just like in the origianl version.

    • Kane grabbed Zatch by the collar and told him that Kiyo couldnt have beaten those two guys that knocked him out, but Kane only saw one: Eido.

    • In A Freezing Spell, Gikor freezes someone. But in this episode the attack shoots ice crystals.

    • When the doorbell rings, in the anime, Kiyo thinks it's Zatch. When the doorbell rings, in the manga, Kiyo thinks it a door-to-door salesman.

    • This episode is from Vol. 1 Ch. 7-8 in the manga.

    • When Gufore flew back to the front door after Brago attacked him, Brago's, Sherry's, Kiyo's and Zatch's shoes were gone, but on episode 4, they all left their shoes at the front door.

    • After Kiyo takes those rock spikes in the back, his shirt is not torn, but in the scenes after that the back of his shirt is torn.
