Robo-hysteria from Shin Mazinger Shougeki! Z Hen, a TV anime series loosely based on a plethora of Go Nagai manga, and directed by Giant Robo: The Day the Earth Stood Still helmer Yasuhiro Imagawa. As short as this clip is, it's peppered with teeny tiny homages to Imagawa's earlier series: as well as naming this tyrant crusher punch for Chujo the Silent's desperation move, I'm also hearing the sound effect used when The Eye of Folger preps for its disaster attack. Currently pestering Manga Video to do the decent thing and licence this for UK distribution.
