So, are we gonna be seeing more of Katze Berg? I know that the 2nd season is still far ahead, so I gonna cut to the chase as I make my 1st lousy review.
So what we have was something that is connected to the parent anime, so therefore this 1 off special can be considered as an extra episode. Plotwise, there isn't much to say something that connects to the parent anime, the only consultation here was about Katze Berg as we see him........or her being absorb by Hajime. So I guess it is safe to say that this 1 off special is all about Rui, Katze and Hajime, since it does revolve around them, so my score for this category is a 5.
What I like about the illustration was modern bohemian style that has been applied to every aspect of the anime, so my score for this part is very good 8.
I gonna give it a 7 since I like the opening, closing, the action them and the voices of Hajime, Rui and Katze since the inflection was well suited for their character.
As much as I like Hajime, Rui and Katze, I very disappointed that director Kenji Nakamura has sidelined the main characters for the latters, it was suppose to be Sagane, Utsutsu, Joe, paiman and OD who were suppose to be the main characters, unfortunately he overshadowed them with the mentioned 3, so a 3 it is for this part.
For the most part, this special was quite annoying, tbh, but seeing what happen to Katze did provide me with some sort of enjoyment, but barely so I'm gonna say that I'm giving this category a 4.
I still can't say if this anime from season one up to the upcoming season 2 would qualify as a remake of the 1970's anime or a spin off of the live action movie Gatchaman. But from the looks of it, it seems like a series of it's own, Now I aware that the review I'm making is for this special but like I've said this is connected to the parent anime so technically it was part of season 1, well anyways it was still worth watching.............but only barely.
