TV-Osaka is a subsidiary company of Nikkei Newspaper. It is under "TXN" TV-news network system by TV-Tokyo. TV-Osaka has also broadcast Neon Genesis Evangelion, Pocket Monsters, Slayers TRY, DAIUNDOUKAI, UTENA, New No Need For Tenchi and Kodomo No Omocha. It is located at Ootemae in Osaka near the Osaka Castle.
In the end of 1997, TV-Osaka broadcast TV-animation type Neon Genesis Evangelion (26 episodes for four days). It was a third time. Moreover its sponsors included Bandai and the ending stationary pattern was the same as the first broadcasting in 1995. It was apparent that the broadcast was for enthusiastic fans of Eva. TV-Tokyo and TV-Aichi did not broadcast the program.
In B Part of Episode 12 of Eva, "Kiseki No Kachi Ha?; She said, 'Don't make others suffer for your personal hatred.'" Ms Asuka Langley Souryu (CV = Ms Yuko Miyamura) said, "I know what you've got in your wallet. Don't worry.(Japanese: Misato No Saifu No Nakami Kurai Wakatteru-wa. Muri Shinakute Iiwayo.)."
However Ms Misato Katsuragi (CV = Ms Kotono Mitsuishi) was a Major (Japanese Self Defense Force: 3-Sa). Here is the Law no. 114 of 1997 of Japanese Government. It includes a table of wages for Self-Defence Officials.
She was 29 years old. Perhaps her salary was 325,100 yen excluding extra allowances. She lived in Hakone (Tokyo-3). Her annual income was about 9 million yen ($67,000). It is much more than mine, of course. She was able to treat those children to a French full-course dinner.
It is said that mechanic design in Eva was very excellent. The designer was Mr. Yoshiyuki Sadamoto. Moreover Mr. Hideaki Anno is good at explosion scene. By the way, a TV-animation was broadcast by TV-Tokyo in the end of 1997. The program included mechanic design and explosion scene. It was made by Studio Gallop.
You know a special program of Kochi-Kame by Fuji Telecast and Studio Gallop in the beginning of 1998 included mechanic design and explosion scene. In the program, Policeman Kankichi Ryoutsu went abroad for sightseeing but fought against US Navy then and sent an aircraft carrier to the bottom. The design was very accurate and detailed.
The program in the end of 1997 was not Kochi-Kame but Kodomo No Omocha.
The story 90A of Kodomo No Omocha (a junior high school love comedy drawn by Ms Miho Obana) titled "Mechanical Mother Hayama is a true mother of Akito (Japanese: Mecha-Hayama-Haha ha Haha-Hayama)" was the program. The director was Mr. Akitarou Daichi. The mechanic designers were Ms Rei Nakahara and Ms Yumi Koike. The special effect was made by .
In the 90A story, Father Hayama is a DIY mad scientist. He made a robot named Mecha-Koharu as a mechanical mother of Mr. Akito Hayama because Akito lost her mother. Father Hayama installed Mecha-Koharu with a most excellent LSI for fighting and a LSI for Gigantism. However Father Hayama did not install Mecha-Koharu with a LSI for motherhood which was sold by Shibuya ASATU-Hands (Parody of Tokyu-Hands and ASATSU. Tokyu-Hands is under Tokyo Kyuko Dentetsu Group, a department store for DIY, and has stores near Kobe Sannomiya Ikuta Jinja Shrine, Suita Esaka SNK, Nagoya Hisaya Oodouri TV Tower and Futako-Tamagawaen Namco Wondereggs 2. ASATSU is a large-scale advertisement agent in Japan. Copyright of Samurai Shodown RPG "Bushidohretsuden" belongs to ASATSU. ASATSU is also related with hundreds of TV-animation.). Therefore Mecha-Koharu was not tender and became giant. Moreover she destroyed ASATU-Hands. She went to Tokyo Tower in order to destroy it. (Many Monsters in Japan have destroyed Tokyo Tower.) Then Giant Magical Angel Sana Kurata (CV = Ms Shizue Oda) fought against Mecha-Koharu.
Blue-colored Mecha-Koharu looked like Test-type EVA-01 and Giant MAGICAL ANGEL Sana looked like MAGICAL Princess Chacha (CV = Ms Masami Suzuki, Mr. Akitarou Daichi joined the crew.) and Nurse ANGEL Ririka (CV = Ms Kaori Asou, Director = Mr. Akitarou Daichi).
Red Riding Hood Chacha and Nurse Angel Ririka SOS were broadcast by TV-Tokyo formerly. The staff for special effect in Chacha, Ririka and Kodomo No Omocha included .
Mechanic design of Mecha-Koharu was much detailed and Mecha-Koharu's explosion scene was realistic and looked like one in Eva.
We expect him and Akitarou Daichi's team.
