I don’t know whether you followed the series or not, TV Champion is a Japanese series of contest with various subjects for each week aired from 1992 until 1993, continued with its second series from 1993-2006, and 2006-2008. Aired not only in Japan, for example in Thailand and in Indonesia, it was a part of my Japanese series childhood memories alongside Ninja Warrior (Sasuke) and Takeshi’s Castle (I was not into Viking because I was quite older already back when it’s aired and we didn’t have Unbeatable Banzuke, there were still quite other TV shows though) . When I said various subjects, I mean various subjects, from the obvious origami, juggling, until things like perfect parking, Morning Musume (girl group) lover , and competitive eating. My favourites from episodes that I watched and remembered are the Lego ones, the stationery one, and the gift-wrapping one (when I said I like it, I mean it).
Made to-TV wuxia is a nostalgic memory for my generation in my country, Indonesia. I still remember the made believe swordfight in elementary school. Last week coincidentally I stumbled in a online forum talking about Condor Trilogy the novel, and this easily interested me just realized that in the online world somebody had translated the novels.
