Was fiddling around with my satellite receiver and found that I could get Italia1 (a channel that broadcasts some Japanese animation) on 13 deg E which is one of the easiest satellites to pick up.
Also found via Google that the channel “RAI Gulp” on 13 deg. E. (FTA ) broadcasts anime, including Attack no 1 a.k.a “Mimi e la nazionale della pallavolo” on at 19.00 today.
Furthermore, I saw a feed for Italian Ebay which demonstrates that the whole series is available on Italian DVDs and you can buy them for reasonable sums of money. This is a classis sports anime series which I waatched several times in its German version “Mila Superstar”.
