I like to think of myself as a huge fan of the classic anime series Gatchaman (well, I watched the English dubs of Battle of the Planets on teevee as a kid), but I really don't remember that much about it, except it starred a team of science-based superheroes who wore sweet bird suits, kicked alien butt, and flew a wicked spaceship that turned into a flaming bird and helped inspire one of the best underground rap songs of the 21st century.
Since this is in Japanese, I can't really offer much analysis. It looks like they toned down the birdiness of the costumes, and dulled the color palette, so that all the suits are black with color as accent. That's kind of disappointing, but I guess they wanted to avoid looking too much like Power Rangers. Anyways, the Toya Sato-directed Gatchaman is coming out in Japan on August 24th, so it shouldn't be too long until you can catch it in the West. Stay tuned...
