TF1 & VIZ Media Europe announce the broadcasting of 2 successful series

25 Sep - 2018

VIZ Media Europe, leader in Japanese Entertainment in Europe, partners up with TF1 Group to broadcast two major Anime shows: Captain Tsubasa and My Hero Academia.

Captain Tsubasa, the most popular football animated TV series in the world will return in early 2019 with a new version and the ambition to rally the original and recruit a new generation of kids. TF1, the historical Captain Tsubasa French broadcaster during 80/90’s in France with its mythical program “Le Club Dorothée”, will air the series reboot from beginning of next year. With a double broadcasting strategy by targeting a diversified audience, the show will appear on the kids program TFOU (on TF1) and the channel TFX.

My Hero Academia, the new superhero phenomenon from Japan will also be broadcasted at the end of this year on TFX. This promising license, welcomed as the new Naruto, has already reached some record figures. The manga, published by Ki-oon, has already sold more than 1,5 million copies in France. A video game based on My Hero Academia universe will be released on next October 26th. Launched by Bandai Namco Entertainment, “My Hero: One’s Justice” will be available on many platforms (Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC Digital via STEAM).

20 years after the end of the Club Dorothée, we are glad to bring back Anime on TF1 Group channels. Captain Tsubasa and My Hero Academia are long awaited series, we are convinced they will reach a large audience thanks to this partnership.” affirms Aâdil Tayouga, Executive Manager at VIZ Media Europe.

We are thrilled about the acquisition of these series, to bring back Captain Tsubasa which has left its mark on an entire generation under the name Olive et Tom on our channels, and to welcome My Hero Academia for the great satisfaction of our public.” adds Xavier Gandon, TF1 Director TV broadcasting and digital.
