UPDATE: $265.32 raised so far. You can be the next hero!

Hi everyone.

Since 2001, it has been our mission here at Live-eviL to bring you the best quality version we can of anime that has been overlooked. We have dedicated tens of thousands of dollars and hours to bring you classics like Rose of Versailles, Yawara, Death Note, and many others.

On rare occasions, we come across a project that we truly desire to bring you but we lack the resources to do so properly. One such project is Attack No,1, aka the greatest sports anime ever made.

It is absolutely mind-boggling that we’ve gone over 40 years and no one has ever subtitled Attack No.1. The show is one of the most influential anime ever created, single-handedly launching the sports anime & shoujo anime markets in Japan. For two straight years, over 20% of Japanese TV viewers tuned in to see Kozue’s volleyball struggles every week. It is a cultural institution that, unless you live in one of the European countries it aired in, you’ve probably never heard of it outside Japan. Until now.

Like Rose of Versailles, it is consistently voted into Top Ten Favorite Anime lists. The animation quality, for its time, is absolutely top notch, and the story is fantastic.

Mark my words, Attack No.1 will be the new flagship Live-eviL series, on par with Condor Hero, Rose of Versailles, and Yawara. It is 104 episodes long and we plan to bring you every episode subtitled in maximum quality possible, just like we did for those great series.

However, we need YOUR help to buy the Blu-ray boxes. The show was restored and released on Blu-ray recently. We currently only have R2 DVD rips and these are not sufficient for this title. The Blu-rays are surprisingly inexpensive (around $4 per episode, compared to $30 for Lodoss!) at only $450 for the entire series in glorious high definition.


If you’d like to show your appreciation to us for all the work we’ve done over the years, this is your opportunity. You came together for Lodoss and I know you can do it once more. It means the world to us.

P.P.S. Any leftover funds will go towards purchasing R2 DVDs to help us re-do Condor Hero. This is the last fundraiser we will do for a very long time (to put it in perspective, the last time we raised money was to purchase VCDs (!!!) of Condor Hero back in 2003, so once a decade is about our normal pace). If you were planning to support us and missed out on Lodoss, now is your final chance.
