Three-volume 1994-1995 video remake of 1972-1974 science-fiction anime
The Crunchyroll video-sharing website has announced that it will host the 1994-1995 three-volume video remake of the 1972-1974 Gatchaman science-fiction anime, starting this month. Urban Video had released the video series on video tape and later on DVD in North America. Tatsunoko Production licensed the rights to the series to Harmony Gold, who in turn licensed the digital distribution rights to Fireworks International. Crunchyroll is hosting another Tatsunoko anime project: the Speed Racer adaptation of the 1967-1968 Mach Go Go Go car-racing anime. Hong Kong's Imagi (TMNT) had announced that it was working on a Gatchaman computer-graphics film remake in 2006, but TMNT director Kevin Munroe has since left the project and the company.
