Since 2011, Tachikawa, located in western Tokyo Metropolis, has been celebrating its status as the "City of Anime." Generally this means that its Autumn Rakuichi notes its status as the inspiration for the setting of A Certain Magical Index/Scientific Railgun, but this year, the “Certain Municipality’s Area Promotion” got to double up with an appreciation for Gatchaman Crowds, which likewise set its action in the city.

As we noted a while back, Kinako, the original character designer for this summer's Gatchaman Crowds, does a fair amount of fanart. This week, she was inspired to Tweet her take on Nyanta, the were-cat swashbuckler former Chief of Debauchery Tea Party from Log Horizon. Get a look after the jump.
So far there's just an announcement and a small Berg Katze teaser on NTV's website, but a second season of unique superhero anime Gatchaman Crowds has been confirmed with the title "Gatchaman Crowds Second." More after the jump.
Considering that the anime has a Tatsunoko 50th anniversary banner on it, this season's Gatchaman Crowds anime is surprisingly modern in its look and themes. And, considering how far it deviates from the classic Science Ninja Team, the response has been surprisingly positive. Sentai Filmworks has now announced that they've licensed the 12 episode series, and that it will be available digital outlets with a home video release to follow in 2014.
The latest addition to Crunchyroll's summer anime lineup is swooping in to save us all with its spiritual powers! Gatchaman Crowds is set to kick off on Friday, July 12 at 11:30am Pacific for premium members, with free members able to watch episodes one week after their initial broadcast. Read on for more!
