or is maybe looking specially for the impact it had on UK residents who saw it as children?

It had a massive impact on me. I first watched it at a few months old, which I think is probably at least partially responsible for my lifelong love of animation, along with a fascination about China (and Japan). I’ve continued to constantly rewatch throughout my life (I’m 40 now), plus I’ve got an Uproar in Heaven (which I saw around the same time) inspired tattoo on my foot (I’m planning a Nezha one too).

So yeah, I should probably get in touch with her. 😉

There was a pretty terrible copy of the BBC dub on Youtube about 10 years ago - wish I’d tried to download it back then 😭

I used to have the Nezha BBC dub, sad I didn’t manage to rescue it before my mother taped over it years ago. But meh, I’m sure it is floating around somewhere on the internet, just have to hope it emerges. 😃

If you still need help syncing subtitles I’d be very happy to help! I love the old BBC version 😃

Yeah, I’ve never been able to find the BBC version, so I’m hopeful this project keeps going. Though that is greedy of me, as I’ve already had the wonderful gift of the Uproar in Heaven project (which is the other hugely significant animation of my childhood: I think both of them were showing during the same Channel 4 film festival back when I first came to the UK as a baby in the early 80s).

Wow! Very cool.

For those that don’t have usenet, I’ve uploaded a copy of this, and anyone can PM me for a link.

Awesome! I haven’t checked this thread in ages, but chatting to a fellow Uproar in Heaven fan yesterday (on our way back from a BJJ Globetrotters camp in Austria, randomly) reminded me to go take a look. 😄

Btw 1, those who interested in this movie should also check out "Nezha Nao Hai"(1979) aka "Nezha Conquers The Dragon King". It's my favourite.

 

Love that film, so was most annoyed when my mother taped over it years ago with some DIY program. IIRC, that is available in English: seem to remember satanika sending me the link a while ago, but would be interested if anyone has recommendations for especially good versions (with English subs) and decent suppliers?

I finally managed to get the English narration. :)
So it will be included also. Thanks to Brumme for the lead, which ultimately worked out.

 

Very glad to have helped, even if it was only a small part of the project: finally had a chance to watch the DVD you sent today with my niece (who sat enthralled, naturally), and wasn't expecting just how incredibly professional you've made it! Really cool to finally know what they were saying, thanks to the subtitles.

You did an awesome job!
