  • Why Does It Always End So Well?
    I am always struggling through the series, but speed through the final episodes.

    This series was made on killer endings.

    The characters all develop pretty well (my favorite characters don't get nearly enough screen time), the animation is average, and the plot is not too bad and quite relevant for our digital age. However, this series knows how to close, and I always feel so satisfied at the ...

  • The Thinkers Hero Show
    The first few episodes of Gatchaman Crowds, I wasn't entirely into it. To be honest, I'm not big on transforming heroes, I never was, and it took me several episodes until I got into the show. However, it has been a trip worth taking. This is not your typical hero anime, or hero work in general. It's something of a deconstruction of the genre, and actually something very fresh. It brings up in ...

  • Interesting Philosophy but Weak Character Development
    There are social issues that inspire viewers to think. Multiple issues are connected together smoothly through the season, and solutions to them are also inspiring.

    The art style is unique as it was in the first season, but weak character development is still a problem - one can see characters' personality, but most of their thoughts are unknown.

  • What a great series.
    Utterly creative, wonderfully thought provoking and exceptionally unique. What isn't to love about Gatchaman? Hajime-chan in particular is a shining star, but every character is well thought out. No one is without fault or virtue and it's impossible to completely hate any one character.

    Unlike many series, there is no 'reset' button. No status quo the series reverts to after every conclusion. ...

  • Insight takes the show in an interesting direction!
    Pros:
    Hajime is one of the best anime characters of all time.
    Young Gelsadara is cute.
    The show tackles a concept most anime's would never touch.
    Awesome music like the first series.

    Cons:
    The show can seem a bit slow at times.
    Could always use more dance music in the show.
    Older Gelsadara isn't that good of a character.

  • Cloudcuckoolander and team to the (awesome!) rescule!
    This show is really, really good!

    The characters are fun and diverse without anybody feeling like a token cardboard-cutout, the pacing is fast and keeps you on the edge of your seat, the fights are spectacular, the animation beautiful and the plot itself is surprisingly innovative and clever. It touches some really unique concepts and makes them fit naturally into the plot. And while not ...

  • Gatchaman Crowds really makes you think
    I've never been a fan of mecha, but Hajime's personality glued me to the screen. S1 ep1 JJ pulled a NOTE out of her and instead of being surprised, she accepted it at face value and went with it. This was a first for me "Woah! She didn't overreact and she wasn't too hesitant about being chosen as a Gatchaman! What is this??"

  • One Of My All Time Favorites
    Hands down the best reboots of all time and possibly one of the most underrated of animes.

    Even in the 70's, Gatchaman was super progressive by making Berg Katze notoriously trans. Do you have any idea how long it took for even an american sitcom to do that!? I'm pretty sure it was like 2014.

    The characters aren't traditional which makes them unforgettable. There's no love story in this ...

  • Absolutely Breathtaking
    This anime is without a doubt my favorite. Let me just first say that I take it upon myself to watch every new (meaning not a subsequent season of an anime I have not seen) simulcast every season, so I watch LOT of anime. Every aspect of this anime is amazing. Gatchaman Crowds has a stunning and unique art style that is just so beautiful, and all of the characters are very unique. IMO, the story ...

  • Men In Black and Power Rangers have a baby.
    I'm at a crossroads on the visual style of Gatchaman Crowds. On the one hand, its vivid color palate and character animation give it a 90s anime look and feel. The CGI effects are cool, but I wish more painted backdrops were used. I feel like the complex CGI sequences fight for visual attention with still backdrop scenes, which Gatchaman Crowds does beautifully in its own right. In terms of ...
