First Ep. was pretty promising!
The characters all look pretty interesting. Utsutsu is adorable, Hibiki looks to be a badass and I Love Hajime, lol
The art is beautiful and the CG was pretty good to. Didn't stand out like I thought it would.
Wonderful OST!

I've got high expectations for this show now ;D

I love Hajime's carefree character though I wish her voice was a little different.

LOL @ the "I'm too cool to listen to this so I'll just lay down and slap a book on my face so I appear cool and apathetic" guy.
Of course that's probably not his intention but haha it just makes me laugh.

I like the animation too, this anime is officially on my watch list. Yeepee so many great shows this summer

I'm not sure about this reboot. I'll give it a chance. But, in some ways, I feel like they should have used a name different than Gatchaman. It felt like somebody had a series idea, performed a few tweaks and used the Gatchaman name to sell it. So far, other than a couple of nods to the original this seems to have nothing to do with it. In fact, it seems closer to Battle of the Planets (which was very butchered Gatchaman sold in the USA in the 70s) than to the original source material.

Episode 1:

Really liking the animation style and music in the show, Hajime is freakin hyper as heck but it still makes her a pretty interesting character.

Overall, solid episode, will keep watching for sure.

I guess the original title of "OH GOD THE COLOURS" wasn't quite as snappy.

Well, "Colorful" was already taken, after all. Err, so I've heard, is what I meant to say...

This cracked me up. I loved it. A lot. Hajime totally stole the show.

While inspired by the original, it's very different. It's certainly, at least in ep 1, more light-hearted and funny than the original. The same core concept is there: Gatchaman protects the earth from alien interference. They also kept the "Bird, Go!" transformation. I'm hoping they keep the Phoenix too. :)

As for characters, Sugane is the new Ken (Mark); Jou (Joe) has kept his name in all the versions; Hajime is the new Jun (Princess); O.D. is the new Ryu (Tiny); and Utsu-tsu is the new Jinpei (Keyop). It looks like the villain Katze Berg (Zoltar) has kept his/her name. Utsu-tsu hasn't said much, but I think I'll miss the foul-mouthed Jinpei.

I don't know how many old fans are watching the show. Some might be unhappy with the changes, but I felt it was fresh and modern. While ep 1 was clearly an introduction, I think it setup the world well enough. I'm definitely looking forward to ep 2.

Well that was kind of wacky. Could keep my interest; could fail to. But I did like the art. All those shapes and colors!

I love love love the visual direction, but some of the characters felt a little off to me (particularly Hajime - yes, she's genki, but her attitude came off as so unusual as to be borderline creepy to me). Still in my top 5 for this season, should probably go check out Tsuritama too since it's by the same guy.

Hajime's a great character (notebook otaku?), but I wish she'd stop screaming in my ear.

Art direction is simply astounding, music direction is totally in concert with it, and both art and music by themselves are stunning. Debating between watching this every week, or waiting until all the episodes are out and marathoning it.

Never watched the original, though. A bit of a shame, really.
