    Cybot Robotchi (サイボットロボッチ) is a 1980s TV anime that was broadcast in Japan by TV Tokyo. This series was also released in the US as Robby the Rascal and in Italy as Robottino. I'm requesting any raw or dub of as many episodes as possible as long as the dub is not in English since the US version deleted most of the fanservice humor. Of course, I'd like Japanese raws over Italian dubs but, to be honest, this series is extremely hard to find since, as far as I know, it was never released in home video format in Japan, not even in VHS. It is particularly hard to find since the studio that created the series, Knack, no longer exists. I've even done a quick search in Share and not even the Opening is available there. So, it's likely that the Italian dub may be easier to find or even a Chinese sub. I repeat, I don't want the English dub as it is censored. This series is similar to Dr. Slump.

    Any information regarding where to find this anime will be greatly appreciated.

    searching eMule for "Robottino" there are lots of episodes mentioned, but not all are complete. They are listed as "[Anime-ITA] Robottino" or "Robottino". Most of them in the old MPG format.

    You have very special tastes, don't you? :chinesenewyearm:

    You really like to choose anime that are very difficult to find, on the other hand it's a challenge, and I like challenges :perfectplan:

    The only japanese release I could find is a vinyl of the opening/ending songs:

    There are italian torrents indeed, I just post one possible source:

    There was a broadcast in Spain too, and probably released on VHS (= no subs).

    Indeed, I have to admit that I have a special taste for 1980s comedies and a more prominent special taste for rare anime.

    It seems that ed2k is going to be the best option to get this series as most torrents seem to be dead. That's, unfortunately, the weak point of torrents, particularly with non-popular series.

    Thanks for your help. Now I know where to look for. I'll probably focus on it once we finish Ganmo. I wish Japanese raws were available but considering that this series is better known outside of Japan, I guess Italian TVrips will have to do.
