    I was pleasantly surprised.
    I'm amused by how many people are trying (and failing) to give in-depth reports about the characters despite the show only being five episodes in. Which, ironically, is actually want I want to talk about. Well, I really just want to talk about Hajime-chan.

    I've noticed a lot of people ragging on Hajime for being a weak, uninteresting female lead. I think this is untrue, and not only because I'm ...

    Episode 11 was so touching!
    The first half of episode 11 was so emotional, I teared up a bit. All the Gatchaman confessing how they found Hajime to be inspiring and could see their real selves was the highlight of the episode for me.

    The second half was just as great. Especially the Prime Minister going all berserk after reading the comments on the live video! And of course, everyone (Gatchaman, the police, etc) working ...

    Amazing Deconstruction
    This show would be really good as just an action/adventure show (although it would have had a slow start for that for sure), but it really shines in that it takes apart the normal assumptions we have with action anime and superhero shows.

    In a standard show, Sugune (the kid with the sword) would be the main hero, and Hajime would be the annoying sidekick/love interest, and they'd fight various ...

    Great anime! Pretty Good!
    I can see why people are giving it a low score. It is because the first few episode was... too childish. But then again, it is rated pg-13.

    After you get used to and adapt to the characters in this anime, you will begin to appreicaited. It is a very good and fun theme overall. Too bad that it is only 12 episode.

    If you enjoy saving the world and mecha. Then I highly recommend this anime. ...

    Gatchaman Crowds amazing!
    Wow, thats seriously what i can say about Gatchaman. It is a cute, bubbly, energetic, amazing, an just a totally outstanding anime all over. The visuals are breathtaking, Character development is really detailed, you get an overview of who they are from the start, an as the story progresses you get to see who they become.

    With this story you cannot help but get pulled into its magnetic grip. ...

    Like if Durarara!! and Tiger and Bunny had an excellent hypercoloured baby
    I love this series. I am so glad I got into it.
    As a western comics fan, I continually see people take old works, old heroes and refuse to innovate or update or truly work with them.

    But Gatchaman crowds takes an old, beloved property and makes it it's own thing, it isn't afraid to deviate from its traditional background.

    And I love it for that. Also because it's superheroes done ...

    Give it a chance guys
    All right everyone....quit yer griping. It's only the first episode....

    I am a huge gatchaman fan (as both G-force and Battle of the Planets) and I see this as a spiritual successor that does not need to be 100% faithful (or even faithful at all beyond the broadest of plot lines - defending earth from aliens).

    I enjoyed the echoes of the original (Mark and Jason are fully present) and I ...

    First impression: Very intriguing
    This anime so far looks very intriguing. The art is absolutely amazing. Based off the plot its presented so far, this could turn out really good. I'll see where this anime takes me as the show progresses.

    An unorthodox superhero series?
    Interesting series, I have enjoyed the episodes currently out (5). I haven't actually seen many superhero series, and this one has some topics that are open to a good amount of thinking like death note, code geass, or steins;gate.

    Music and art style is unique, and the characters are too cool. Hajime with her eccentricity is too good.

    5 stars from me.

    Really interesting show
    it took me a bit to get used to the art but i started to like it since everything is so bright and colorful, the music is good especially when the transform, and the main girl is just really funny and friendly and one of those characters that you can't hate, I wont lie it's a little weird but I really like it so far.
