I’ve seen superheroes fight a lot of things, but Gatchaman Crowds Insight takes them out of their element—instead of superheroes battling blatant villains, we see how they deal with sweeping social changes.
Halfway through the summer season, I called Gatchaman Crowds one of the five anime you should be watching. It is an anime that all gamers should watch as it shows amazing insight into the future of video games in addition to having an adventure that’s deeper than you’d expect.
Gatchaman (i.e., Battle of the Planets) was one of the most popular anime of the 1970s. Now, 40 years later, this franchise is getting a new anime and a live-action film—which debuted in Japan this past weekend. Sadly, this attempt to reinvent Gatchaman has created nothing but a painfully clichéd action movie.
When the summer 2013 anime season started early last month, I told you a little bit about each anime and where to watch them. However, with 36 new anime available to watch this summer, that raises the question: Which of them should you be watching?
It's summer, and that means the live-action Gatchaman movie is right around the corner. To celebrate, Toho published two trailers. They're suitably epic.
Famed Japanese anime Science Ninja Team Gatchaman is coming to the big screen. And it's bringing new Gatchaman suits with it. Those G-suits don't come cheap!
You might know Gatchaman (known in the West as Battle of the Planets) from the fighting game Tatsunoko vs. Capcom or the Gatchaman anime. You will know Eririka Katagiri for this stupid stunt she pulled over the weekend.
