One day, a huge UFO spins over Japan and crashes into a rural farmland outside Nagaoka, disrupting Tsubasa Misudachi's ordinary life. As the Gatchaman, the legendary defenders of Tachikawa City, supervise the ordeal, a peaceful alien creature emerges from the spacecraft. In the ensuing chaos, Tsubasa is given a special high-tech notebook, or NOTE, from Gatchaman founder J.J. Robinson, signaling Tsubasa's sudden recruitment into their group. Under the tutelage of fellow hero Hajime Ichinose, Tsubasa slowly begins to adjust to life as a defender of justice.

Meanwhile, the CROWDS technology, which enables users to manifest their consciousness' into a physical form, is spreading amongst the public, as well as being endorsed by Prime Minister Sugayama. However, a mysterious organization known as VAPE has gained notoriety by using unique red CROWDS to wreak havoc, shifting public opinion against the CROWDS technology. The Gatchaman, along with new recruit Tsubasa, must put a stop to their destructive activities before it's too late.

Either way, let's go!
Story - 7
As a few others noticed, the second season took a rather different route than the first - Gatchaman Crowds had more of the "heroes fight the bad guys" kinda thing going on while Gatchaman Crowds Insight had more of a "people debate on whether to do one thing ...

Mixed Feelings
So after the first season's focus on social networking and gamification, the series has moved onto tackling democracy and mob mentality. The results are more mixed than last season. Part of the problem is that it feels like the first several episodes spend a lot of time twiddling their thumbs and not really going anywhere. The Gatchaman are famous now, they got a new member, a friendly alien has shown up, and it doesn't feel like much happens with them for a while despite there being a new enemy. Then it feels like they rush into the major event that drives ...

There are two kinds of sequels in the anime world - ones that are made because the writer has more story to tell and one that’s made to cash-in on the original. And whilst this new Crowds anime played out like the latter during quite a few points, the little man inside my mind always kicked that possibility to the curb whilst saying “Cash-in on what, exactly? It didn’t sell great, it’s not popular on MAL, and had so many production issues it’s a wonder people fell in love with it at all”. Unfortunately, another man who lived in my mind responded with “why exactly ...
