In only just a few short weeks, Gatchaman has been able to establish itself as my favorite anime. It's the combination of excellent vintage animation, sound, retro- style, and over-all originality that makes it such an amazing series. There's plenty of character development along with great story telling. Even the characters make the series such a great work. Gatchaman was the series that played a huge roll in the creation and boom of Henshin tv shows. My advice to anyone is to check out this series, especially if your an old-school anime fan.

When I heard that ADV had released G-Force/Battle of the Planets in it's entirety of all original 105 episodes completely unedited and under the original name, Gatchaman, I was overjoyed! Battle of the Planets [BOTP] was certainly all that and a bag of chips back in the day. Funny thing is, a couple of years back I attempted to revisit my childhood memories by watching Battle of the Planets again for old times sake and to my abject horror and dismay, I saw now with my adult eyes how absolutely putrid BOTP was....feel free to read my review of BOTP. Now that it's fully restored read more

5 episode review:

Started watching subbed and it was a pretty mediocre anime with pretty bad subtitles that were badly worded and had too much text for the amount of time they were on-screen. I was going to drop it, but I figured I should check out the dub. I have now seen 3 episodes of the show with the dub and I gotta say, I like it. The following is a review of Science Ninja Team Gatchaman dubbed.

Science Ninja Team Gatchaman is a children's monster of the week cartoon in which each episode contains a small amount of world-building as it slowly builds up this read more
