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!
The production company of a 2013 summer anime Gatchaman Crowds revealed visuals for the three main characters (Hajime, Sugune, Joe) in their G-suits on its official website for the first time on July 7. The G-suits were also shown in the latest PV screened at Japan Expo in Paris. Check the details after the jump.
Joining the previously announced Maaya Uchida, a remarkably fun voice cast has been assembled for Gatchaman Crowds. Maybe mollifying some of the traditionalists, classic Tatsunoko hero-voice Katsuji Mori plays the series' elder statesman, while the ever popular Mamoru Miyano is the classic villain Berg Katze, and Haruhi herself, Aya Hirano plays the series' sexiest character. See who's who after the jump.
