Kadokawa Posts Basquash! Anime Episodes on YouTube

posted on by Egan Loo
First 2 episodes of Satelight's robot basketball action anime with TV special

The Kadokawa Anime Channel on the YouTube video website is streaming the first two episodes of Satelight's Basquash! robot basketball anime series from May 1 to May 7 to mark Japan's Golden Week holidays. It also posted the pre-broadcast television special "Legend of Basquash." (The channel had been streaming a promotional video since last month.)

The story takes place on the planet Earthdash, where its inhabitants gaze on its moon and the technologically advanced lunar city of Mooneyes with awe. Dan JD, a boy living in Rollingtown on Earthdash's surface, gets caught up in Bigfoot Basketball — a fast-paced sport played with giant Bigfoot robots.

Satelight executive director and anime creator Shoji Kawamori (Macross, Escaflowne, Aquarion) and French animation creator Thomas Romain (Oban Star-Racers, Aria the Natural) collaborated on the creation of this unorthodox, joint French/Japanese anime production. It premiered on Japanese television last month.
