The story is set in Japan in the early summer of 2015. 180,000 people live in Tachikawa City, the "second metropolis" of the Tokyo area. Among them are "Gatchaman"—warriors who fight in special reinforced suits powered by "NOTE," the manifestation of special spiritual powers in living beings. A council has scouted a group of individuals with latent powers to protect Earth from alien criminals. In recent years, the council has assigned Gatchaman warriors to deal with the mysterious entity known as "MESS."

Since I recently finished this series (and the director's cut), I feel like I should explain why I loved this series as much as I did. Also, I have not seen the original Gatchaman, but the story is very different in Crowds, so you don't need to worry about watching anything before it. Now, for the review. Bird, go!

Story (8): Gatchaman Crowds is both a deconstruction and homage to the traditional "Hero saving the Earth" story. We have a group of heroes who protect the world from the shadows and have to conceal their identities. However, when a girl named Hajime joins their group, they read more

It's a strange feeling when I think that a series would've done better if it were a different genre. I've only ever felt that way about one anime, and it's this one: Gatchaman Crowds. It had a lot of good points going for it, from it's unique art to the lovable characters, but there were a few things that kept me from enjoying it to it's fullest potential. Namely, the storyline.

Right from the beginning, Gatchaman Crowds starts off on a unique foot with the eccentric main character, Hajime, obsessing over her planners. Shortly after, she meets a very tall, god like fellow who bestows read more

*Disclaimer: This is a review of the original 12 episodes of the first season

Gatchaman Crowds was a series that I had my eye on, and was planning to watch, but managed to fly under my radar. This was partially because of a bunch of other shows that came up that caught my attention, and the fact that the series had gotten some mixed reviews. But, I finally got around to watching it. There aren’t a lot of super hero anime series’, and I was really interested in the direction that Gatchaman Crowds would take. Is this something noteworthy, or are the negative reviews more accurate read more

Where there's trouble, we need a hero, someone who we can depend on to ensure the public's safety. Who better than Gatchaman?

Don't be fooled by just the title. Gatchaman does exist and in the near future, they are legendary heroes who stands in with the crowds to protect the public. They're not just heroes but beings with supernatural abilities that allows them to fend off threats and criminals. In any city, there's crime. Luckily, Gatchaman is there to put it to end. They're not just wannabees but people who are capable of making a difference.

Gatchaman Crowds is an anime series produced by Tatsunoko Production. It read more

The high tech community in both of these beautifully animated shows remind me of one another. The cell phone based social networking center is an all new way to communicate with people and eliminate modern day necessities. Both shows are very futuristic in a sense.

The heroes in both series are similar in design and "creation to protect the public."

Social media plays a huge role in both series.

Both have the same fighting art form.

Both have the same kind of kind of people who fight in special mech suits.

Both have the same kind of main character who are high school students.

Both have the same situation where the public is in danger.


One involves a group of antagonists, while in the other anime there is only one main antagonist.

The main character in one anime has a childhood friend, while the other doesn't.

One anime was based on a card game while the other was based from a 1970's version./>

Both involve people with special abilities and secret organizations going after evil elements. Both have characters with very optimistic and artistic personalities. Both have the same action genre and the art of both anime are a bit too fancy.

One has an extra supernatural, comedy genre and a yaoi element in it, while the other has sci-fi and school as its extra genre. One has an extra ecchi element, while one doesn't. The MC in one anime is boy who's more like a damsel-in-distress, while the other anime also stars a boy but he however, can kick ass.

Gatchaman Crowds is basically a super sentai version of Eden of the East, bringing the message that everyone should play their part in making a better society because everyone has something to offer. Also includes commentary on social media, although Gatchaman Crowds is a little more blunt with this.
