Looks neat, I can't wait for this to air soon! Dunno why but I got a Tiger & Bunny vibe.

Looks terrible, undeserving of the Gatchaman name.

So Hajime's superpowers is somewhat like the Green Lantern's? Man, these really radical G-suits caught my attention. Laughing

Wow those designs are ugly Confused

I actually think the original Gatchaman designs have aged remarkably well for such an old show.

I like them, its different. This reminds me of KARAS and I like/love KARAS. Hopefully they have able to blend the CGI and the 2D animation just as well as KARAS. Come on TATSUNOKO!!!! SHOW US WHAT YOU GOT!!!

Tiger and Bunny was my first impression as well. This isn't necessarily a bad or good thing. Radical reimaginings can be good. Or they can be horrendous misfires.

I'm surprised no one seems to have licensed this for streaming yet.

This has nothing to do with Gatchaman, does it?

I get reimagined superheroes, but there's at least some visual motifs kept on.

Thank God, the original costumes and motif were stupid.
Looks like T&B now... HELL YEAH.

I think you mean 'Classic'.

That being said, I'm not against new. Though in this case 'new' means 'add more stuff'.

Oh hey, Japanese super-heroes are going through the same character design process as American super-heroes in the 90s!

Honestly I have less problem with the actually Gatchaman costumes, then I do the alterego character designs that just scream 'Teenage Hipsters'.

Moe. Getting into my Gatchaman!

I too was thinking of Karas there for a moment, ironically that is also a Tatsunoko property. Makes me more curious how well this show will go.

If you are thinking of Karas that is mostly because they both had the same designer.
Also description of G suits sound amazingly bananas,like something that would come out of Hirohiko Arakis mind.
here is the opening for those interested http://www.youtube.com/​watch?​feature=​player_embedded&​v=​dzepAHaVUE4

No, I mean "original" & "stupid". I never liked the hawk motif, and the weapons two of them had were beyond dumb, even for that era: yoyo's and a ribbon. And for the record, I saw it when I was 10, not as an adult.
