    It’s really not enough to go on. I’m a bit concerned too because if not simply because of what looks like a little girl in a bikini but I like the style, it seems unique, and there really isn’t alot of information to go on. Could go either way really. The writer/director has worked on many unconventional and interesting series over the years so that makes me hopeful as well.

    Why the fuck couldn’t they just make this remake like they did Casshern Sin? I guess that tower records ad they had like a million years ago doesn’t mean shit now, and I was looking forward to this remake.

    Character design is at the bottom of the list things affecting how a show’s story goes. The show hasn’t even started yet. At least give it the benefit of a doubt, man.

    Remember how some people complained about W’s suit design, the 2 people thing, and Phillip before the show started? Look how W turned out.

      The difference being W is a Heisei-era Kamen Rider (surrounded by other “pretty” types) and not a revival of a franchise. I think that changes the overall tone of the project just a little bit. Still, it’s hard to tell.

    Color me illiterate, but the posters at my local mall say the live action film is being released the first week of August this year. Frankly, I don’t expect much from anime fan-boys this day and age other than wank bank crap and poor story-telling, so if they decide to have a Gatchaman inspired pile of cow pies air at 140 AM Wednesday morning, I will cede them their material and focus on legitimate media.

    came overseas as “Battle of the Planets” and gained a cult following
    over the decades.” Also was adapted as G-Force in the 70s AND Gatchaman II and Gatchaman Fighter were combined by Saban into Eagle Riders in the 90s.

    Might be great, who knows? I watch the pilot episode of almost everything that comes from Japan, deserves the benefit of the doubt.

    Lol who wants to bet as far as a “remake” goes this turns out as some remake/sequel type thing where it could be seen as either- rather open ended. I mean to me a new look and stuff would be perfect for a “sequel” of types. something after Gatchaman- new group forms due to new bad guys and thus we get a “new gatchaman” I mean if you look at stuff like Saint Seiya Omega- a sequel that redesigned the suits- and made it feel visually as if it was a reboot. I mean to me- i had seen knights of the zodiac, but i never watched every ep, and i was able to enjoy Omega without the “whats going on?” feeling that most sequels have. IT had itsown story seprate from the original- but it was a sequel.

    i like gatchaman crowds because it’s animation is good, it has a unique style, and it has a variety of characters. I wouldn’t say it is anything like the original gatchaman, maybe a little since it is super heros but still it’s very different. the end.
