Back in June, Nolife did a special gundam night, talking about the various aspect of the franchise: shows, games, figurines etc. Nolife exists for 8 years now. It’s the only French channel I watch regularly for years now. There’s only crap on tv now. It’s either reality shows, tv shows with the episodes not airing chronologically, retarded debates brewing racism, and crappy anime, Japanese or not. While the dubs almost always suck, there used to be a lot of different jp anime airing till five years ago or so.
Without even speaking of the history of France with anime and how we’re the nonJapanese anime master race with Italy, around 15 years ago now, in a span of a few years, one channel aired Evangelion, Escaflowne, FMA, Excel Saga, GTO, Monster, Samurai Champloo (only one year after it aired in japan or even less) and more. There was tons of other anime on other channels too. Though the dubs sucked most of the time,it was still cool. Gankustuou even aired on tv here too, cuz muh Monte-Cristo French culture. Then around 3 years ago, I don’t know what happened, but now every channel only airs either Naruto or Fairy Tail. There’s still that one channel reairing old anime from 25+ years ago, but besides Nolife no one airs anime different than ultra popular things now. (Without counting children anime in the mornings like the new Beyblade and the occasional rebroadcast of Princess Sarah,Heidi,Attacker You, etc)
Almost every new French produced anime sucks too. Wakfudofus anime are apparently good but I never watched them. The new Taiyou no Ko Esteban series sucked. Then there’s Marathon who used to do good shows like Totally Spies or Martin Mystère, but now they do crap like Lolirock: A multimedia show copying Sailor Moon and Purikyua and mixing it with music. Even Jem and the holograms was better than this. Don’t watch Lolirock if you value yourself.
Anyway, Nolife did a Gundam night and since they actually aired G Reco.
I was busy, so I only watched all of it now. They also managed to interview Tomino and Yoshida, as in Nolife themselves, not some interview from another source. I summarized what they say since it’s interesting.
