posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
The staff of the upcoming Gatchaman Crowds insight television anime series revealed on Friday that the rock band WHITE ASH will return from the first season to perform the new series' opening theme song "insight." The rock band Angry Rock Rebirth will perform the ending theme song "60 Oku no Tsubasa" (6 Billion Wings).
The staff describes the "0 inbound" episode as follows:
Summer of 2015. The incident that occurred in Tachikawa, Tokyo called the "Tachikawa Incident."
It's been one year since then... CROWDS- the system that turns the mentality of humans into physical form that Berg Katze gave to Rui Ninomiya after extracting his NOTE- has spread among the public as a thing that anyone can use. The man who approved and pushed along this plan was none other than Prime Minister Seitaro Sugayama.
However, people who do not think well of CROWDS are now living with anxiety and dissatisfaction. Among this unease, one day, a mysterious organization attacks Sugayama as he was riding in a ministry vessel.
The next battle for the warriors with wings begins anew.
The new season will reunite the main staff:
- Director: Kenji Nakamura
- Series Composition: Toshiya Ono
- Original Character Design: Kinako

The website posted a teaser blurb in January:
We want to know about ourselves
About the fact there is no "society" in our "country"
Feeling and reason
Modern people are too "fast" — we breath shallow and quick
The anime will premiere on Japanese television in July.
