And the Xmas surprise #2 is… UFO Robot Grendizer 01!

And the Xmas surprise #2 is… UFO Robot Grendizer 01!

Hello again, everybody!

I didn’t take a long time to release another surprise… this time, it’s an anime that has english subs yet, but not really good english subs. This anime introduced me to japanese animes & mangas, like a lot of my fellowmen… it’s UFO Robot Grendizer, rechristianised as Goldorak in France!

To release this first episode, I used japanese dvds (even though they’re not perfect) & translated the excellent french subs with real japanese names. Hiei- (mentioned in my post about Aim for the ace! 2) translated the songs and mentioned romaji lyrics too.

However, I am not certain to release the full series: had Discotek Media (which released Mazinger Z DVDs in R1) released it, I will cancel the project, because I think this company really needs support from anime fans (even if I personnally wait for a Great Mazinger release).

But currently, enjoy this first episode with Koji Kabuto (Mazinger Z‘s protagonist) who comes back to Japan and meets the strange Daisuke Umon, Professor Umon’s son, who seems to hide a lot of secrets…

And the Xmas surprise #1 is… Aim for the ace! 2 01!

Hello, everybody!

As I promised it last month, it’s time to deliver some surprises a few days before Christmas…

As I told it before, first surprise in a never ever released project with english subs… It will be the first Aim for the ace! 2 OVA!

Aim for the ace! 2 is the sequel of the 1973 TV series that takes place 3 years after. It’s an anime less focused on tennis and more on emotions & feelings. It is darker than first anime too.

However, I have a bad news about it: 2 OVAs series were produced between 1988 & 1990, Aim for the ace! 2 and Aim for the ace: Final Stage. And the latter one was never officially released in France and never had official french subtitles. Consequently, when I have finished to translate Aim for the ace! 2, unless there is an unexpected change of situation, you will have to wait for another team to take over. But I think it will take some time to fully translate these OVAs, so I don’t think it’s a big deal…

For the moment, enjoy this first OVA, with Hiromi Oka living fully her life, while coach Munakata is waiting for a very good friend to come back and keep a promise made a long time ago…

By the way, I have to thank my friend Hiei- (leader of the late team Frenchies-Subs) for translating the songs and including romaji lyrics too.
