    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 ...

    I love the animation style
    Its really great, I've never watched the old Gatchaman series so this is just someone coming in without all the nostalgia. I really enjoy the main character so far, the animation quality is really great and I love the music.

    I can't explain it. Just watch.
    I'm not sure why I chose to watch this. Only the first episode is out, and hope it doesn't fall off the rails. It has a mixture of cuteness and mystery that works really well so far. Can't wait until next week.

    I Can Only Hope the Story-line Goes Somewhere
    You ever watch an anime that comes at you from all directions and then still leaves you questioning what might just happen next? This is exactly that anime.

    It's got the feel of one of those old time animes from way back when but the look of the new era.

    "Gatcha, Gatcha, Gatcha, Gatchaman"

    It's like seeing the past in the future. I don't quite get it myself.

    The ...

    Strange yet pretty entertaining
    This show started out hard to follow at first but as the episode progressed it made enough sense to keep me watching, it feels like bakemonogatari got together with tiger & bunny to birth a strange yet fun show, the transformed versions of each character are top notch, I usually hate 3D in anime but this isn't half bad!
    The heroine is sort of...really weird, but I found I like her by the end ...

    Just depends if its your kinda thing!
    Since it's still just starting I think a few people might be a bit hesitant to it because of it's unusual style. But honestly if you like quirky, visually attractive anime like this it's your thing no doubt. If i had to compare it 'art-wise' to anything it might be Gurren Lagann. It has a colorful cast of characters like GL as well. The story looks like it has hope too. So i'm looking forward to ...

    Weird but look promising
    First episode might be confusing but the show look like very lively. The art is excellent except for the gatchaman think i feel like its too much for my taste. The character having very unique personality but need to see next episode before judging this anime. About the plot the first episode only described a brief explanation of the story they don't go to deep. Does it worth watching ? Maybe, ...

    Please don't waste your time.
    Ok so I have seen and read the reviews of this show and I have to say I am shocked that so many people like it.
    Let us start with the plusses.
    The animation is very interesting and colorful which I do love. The transformation themes song and the song in the beginning are very catchy and entertaining, that being said no other music from this show was memorable and that's is a bad thing. I do ...

    A real disappointment
    You know I've never seen the original series, but after this mess I'm going to pick up the upcoming blu ray set. The first ep of Crowds brings you right into a secret group of heroes protecting the world from aliens, it's catchy transformation song really got me hooked I must admit, but then the show continued. Our main heroine is so bloody obnoxious I can't stand it. Must she speak in a high ...

    Nowhere near as good as these reviews say
    There's never been a show before that made me doubt anime fan taste. Even something as controversial as The Flowers of Evil I could get why people like it, but watching this I can't help but wonder if people are watching a completely different series than I am. GC is:

    -a show based on a license in name only. Apart from names and a logo, it is so radically different in style from the original ...
