Wikipedia wrote:In the early summer of 2015 Tachikawa, a second metropolis of Tokyo, is populated by people known as Gatchaman, who are warriors that fight in special reinforced suits that are powered by the manifestation of spiritual powers of living beings called NOTE. A council has recruited individuals that have latent powers to help fight alien criminals. In recent years, the council has appointed the Gatchaman Crew (G-Crew) to fight the mysterious entity known as MESS.

What a cool OP. The animation is just epic. :up:

MC is the weirdest character ever, but considering this is the same director of Tsuritama it makes sense. :ying: Still not really sure exactly what's going on, but I'm interested enough to keep watching!

My favorite of the season so far. I love the character designs, the animation, the pretty much everything. MC had my heart after she shook her own hand <3

I hope OD has more to him than 'Camp Gay Anime Character' as far as personality, because I'm starting to get a bit tired of that trope, though I guess it isn't super common.

I love this show(or rather i like Hajime :p) but...with this director there's high chance it end up being an anime i dislike (that was the case with tsuritama and C).

Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat.

I mean, I can understand not liking [C] (admittedly wasn't Nakamura's best work), but Tsuritama? That was good stuff.

But well, I personally love Nakamura's direction style, so I'm not quite impartial on this. :uhoh:

Episode 3 was pretty cool, lots of stuff going on setting up for a big 4th episode. Though it's surprising how there are so many traps in the main cast :uhoh:

It took me until ep 4 to realize that the purple-haired alien is supposed to be a dude. Least, I think so. Between him, Rui and O.D, this is one of the more open minded series I've seen for sure.

...Actually, have we actually established Rui's gender?

Ep got freaking crazy though, you really have to feel for the victims who are being blamed for these crimes.

Evil dude's voice is so annoying, I can't handle it. :|

And that foreshadowing at the end of the episode
Spoiler :
Red bird burning up, is the end of Jou soon? :uhoh:

I actually had to read up on MAL to confirm but yeah that's a dude. The way he said "Play the game" was really manly xD

The idea behind GALAX is very interesting, but I can't help but wonder how well it would work in real life, or if it would work at all. Ignoring the fact that it requires a godlike computer that instantly knows situations all around the world.

The end of ep 5 was interesting, I had just started thinking that there were less transformations and battles than I expected, and looks like this leads into both. Really excited to see where this is going!

This had a Power Ranger/Super Sentai nostalgic feel to it, yet the animation was quite refreshing. This was actually better than expected, and probably one of the better ones this season.

This was one of my favorites of the season, I loved the art, the themes and the freakin Hajime.

The last two eps felt off to me though.
Spoiler :
Episode 11 had a recap for half the episode, which made the rest of the series feel so rushed, especially noticeable in ep 12 where characters are near-completely absent, OD's DEATH goes completely unmentioned, the last scene which comes out of nowhere and is unexplained. I almost wonder if the recap will be removed for the DVD, because they could have paced things so much better without it, and it felt so out of place.


Even so? I can't get too mad at it, I enjoyed every episode a lot.

This probably annoyed me the MOST in the last episode. It's like a happy ending and I was just thinking "UM HELLO GUYS AREN'T YOU FORGETTING ABOUT SOMEONE? FROM YOUR OWN TEAM NO LESS." >__>

And I agree but I can't deny the VA did an awesome job. ;D He's also one of my favourite voice actors since I can almost always recognize him instantly.
