This summer's Gatchaman Crowds isn't looking any less strange the more we see of it. Tsuritama's Kenji Nakamura is set to direct the new incarnation of the Science Ninja Team with previous collaborators Toshiya Ono on scripts and Yûichi Takahashi adapting Kinako's original character designs. Dancouga Nova's Koji Nakata is on mecha design. The latest announcement is that Maaya Uchida (Vividred Operation's Rei Kuroki) voices the series' lead.
Cast includes 16-year-old, genki art supplies fanatic Hajime Ichinose, senior, samurai-like Sugune Tachibana and recently revitalized college grad Jo Hibiki.
