OK. I hope it looks better now. I prefer this picture since the background here remained intact while in the first it had to be distorted.

The figure of Katri was from one of the Bandai DVD covers  I found in Amazon Japan and I pasted it unaltered. But the background there had  different  perpective and  the image had 1:1 aspect ratio so it was not for panoramic view.

 you mean you found  a banner for Katri?

The banner here is beyond contest anyway

I had to find the fitting background so I cut another segment without altering the ratio. It should be OK now

if by ratio  you meant the size (the first appeared at a resolution 500x130) here is the link with the full resolution. I thought the IMG code would make the image appear at 100%

If there is no prize involved then I I'll add a banner too. This series is so underrepresented that even banners  are beyond contest. Even the time it was broadcasted it was never popular. But music, animation and background quality are of the best.

For anyone knowing German, all the episodes are on Youtube (except 5 and 33). Watching it in the supposed original language is much better as with most of the WMT dubs.

well if you cant wait you can order it cheaply here with English subs (no bootleg btw). The last 4 episodes are perhaps   of the most intense I've seen. So if Live-Evil reach those episodes I'd suggest releasing them together.

Now if only someone could sub the series "Kojika Monogatari" I'd be gratefull

Considering that L.Matsumoto was an avid fan of French cinema and literature, I'd also add the books "Little Prince" and "Maeterlink's Blue Bird". Maeter's design was inspired by the french movie "Marianne of my youth" after all.

Btw does anyone remember this obscure Canadian series? It must have inspired the  GE999 anime to some extent.

The Secret Railroad, 1977

and a video

In terms of importance I voted Galaxy Express 999.

While Legend of the Galactic Heroes is by far the best space opera in story and characters, Galaxy Express has the lead in sci-fi atmosphere and in Japanese it is even better. If you manage to translate all the episodes it will be certainly a feat and for me the best fansubbed series of all.

Cuore:From the Apennines to the Andes

While I saw the series from the Taiwanese DVD that had decent translation, this is another classic series that was popular and probably has the best direction of any series from Japan that comes as close to real life as possible.

Captain Harlock

Another classic. While you can find it on DVD in Europe I plan to watch your release too but I dont think it is better than GE 999. I would have voted for Queen Millenia but I found it dubbed and from the first 13 episodes it is good but it overuses Matsumoto's earlier themes in GE and Captain Harlock excessively so this is rather for Matsumoto fans.


I plan to give a look at the 57 episodes you released (in Europe you can buy all the episodes too) and since it was more popular than Ranma  in Japan, I hope it will be better too.

I would have voted for Creamy Mami too for the effort you made but the show was too kiddie for me to like.

Dear Live-Evil,

I absolutely ADORED what you did with Rose of Versailles. It was one of the first few anime I watched as a kid in Germany, along with Aishite Night and Future Police Urashiman (and loads of other stuff), and lately I've been hunting around for all of these so I can rewatch them and remind myself why exactly I fell in love with anime.

I would like to request 'Lady Georgie', which has a very similar feel and look to Rose of Versailles, so it might be something you're interested in doing. Only a few episodes of the German dub are available on youtube and there are no existing English subs yet. Lots of sentimental value attached to this anime, so if your amazing group actually did this one, I would be forever grateful.

Lots of fan praises

register on that site and download the series in German

Actually that same song was used in ep21 and 22 of the 1981 WMT series "Flone on the Marvelous Island", based on the novel "Swiss Family Robinson"

I think that one has to be a little mature to like the classics, just like cinema or music. A 13 year old boy prefers action and colorful anime with a simple plot...


not just anime, the same goes for movies and animation in general (books are out of the question) and this does not go only for 13 year olds

Problem was we were too young to really appreciate the classics back then and now we're too mature to like the new series. A proof that the older series were overall more sophisticated  for the age group they targetted. Fortunately the cartoons till the 90s were better and this is not subjective. Sure a kid will find any cartoon great but the cartoons back then had more quality

I dont blame the younger viewers. I was the same in their age. But  the younger ones with the Internet are more lucky than we were since they can pick any show they like and enjoy it much more.  They just need the right guidance.


So far I have the first DVD(the official Bandai Visual ones not the bootlegs >_>)

except the Japanese there is also the Taiwanese release by Pimgroup.   It is not a bootleg (CSS protection and region locked) and has also Chinese/Japanese audio and Chinese/English subs, though the English subs are of low quality. But they're much cheaper than the Japanese version

I suspect that Anja is referring to the 1957 Russian animated adaptation of the story, which I also loved as a small child. (There was an American animated adaptation in 1995 that was supposedly really awful, too.) The Russian film has recently been re-released on DVD (albeit with a different dub), so it shouldn't be that hard to obtain.


regarding Russian fairytales adaptations to anime, there's also another good title of 1980 called "Mori wa Ikiteiru" or "The Twelve Months". The Russian animated  version is shorter and a little different.

And the classic 70's title "Swan Lake"
