New Gatchaman Anime Slated for Summer


gatchaman battle of the planets

A live action version of the iconic Gatchaman anime franchise has been confirmed for August, but fans of the series should not be content with just the live action series, as Tsuritama’s Kenji Nakamura is reportedly slated to direct “Gatchaman Crowds,” which is essentially a reboot of the Gatchaman anime. Sources are stating that it will be a departure from the classic version of the fowl-themed superheroes.

The live action version, on the other hand, is scheduled for a summer 2013 release, with production under Nikkatsu and Toho. The cast list includes Tori Matsuzaka from.hack//The Movie and Kamen Rider Decade as Ken, the head of the team. Gō Ayano as second-in-command Jō, Ayame Gōriki as explosive yoyo-wielding Jun, Tatsuomi Hamada as the youngest member Jinpei, and Ryōhei Suzuki as main pilot Ryū.
