Goldorak, One Piece, Harlock… Japanese animation in the spotlight on Paramount

From the pioneer Golodorak in France to the One Piece phenomenon, Japanese animation is in the spotlight on Paramount+ this August.

“Through the testimony of experts and personalities, the documentary tells the story and pays homage to Grendizer, the cartoon hero robot who revolutionized television programming for young people in the 1980s and popularized the genre. , so much so that 30 years later France has become the world's second manga market after Japan”.

This is the pitch of Goldorak Go!, an unpublished documentary directed by Josselin Mahot and Victor Chevet, produced by Galaxie, which will be broadcast exclusively on Paramount+ on August 27. And those nostalgic for the first age of Japanese animation in France will also be able to watch the series Capitaine Flam (52 episodes), Captain Harlock (42 episodes) and of course Grendizer (74 episodes) there from August 15.

Des legends joined by two other big names: Dragon Quest (50 episodes) and the inevitable One Piece (143 episodes in a remastered version).
