    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 ...

    Doesn't live up to the originals.
    For fans of Gatchaman, for fans of Gatchaman 2, Gatchaman F, or even their vulgar translations Battle of the Planets, G-Force and Eagle Riders - give this one a miss.

    It's a whole new team with a story far too convaluted to be taken seriously, and it all stems around a social media app that has way more power than it ought to.

    Oh and you see the guy with the purple hair? SPOILER - Don't ...

    I really had to stop
    I really couldn't get into this one. The art work and story line was getting good but the girl started to annoy me. So I had stopped watching after the 3 episode because of her. It just bugs me that someone new that comes into a situation already knows more then anyone else that had been there before them. There wasn't much of a transition for the girl as she had joined the team.

    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 ...

    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 ...

    Failure to live up to its own potential
    Tl;dr - This show is bad and could have been much better.

    For those who are interested in more details, I'll attempt to explain why the show falls flat on its face and fails to be anything more than a disappointment.

    The first season of this series is actually okay. It has decent action and does a decent job of trying to convey life lessons. Because yes, this is a children's show. Even with ...

    Eh...not sure about this one.
    It seems like there's too much going on without any sort of strong central theme. I've only watched the first two eps, but it just seems far too chaotic. That and I don't know why people are talking up the art in this anime--it's not the best.

    Tatsunoko Productions has lost the last dregs of my respect.
    While I suppose this has the possibility of not ending up as sucktastic of an anime as it currently appears, that would not in any way help to recover my current opinion of Tatsunoko Productions. Kagaku Ninja Tai Gatchaman was groundbreaking in its time, and still stands up surprisingly well today, given that it's over 40 years old. I would have loved to see a serious modern re-imagining of the ...

    Pretty cheesy! not for me.
    It's been a long time since i couldn't get through a single episode. I love mecha but this is really cheesy childish stuff. I rarely say this, but this is really a kids show it seems. If you like 70's 80's anime well this sure has that old feel to it. I'm 29 and personally don't like that old feel. I'm gonna try and watch it again later, but once i saw the mecha design i was pretty much over ...
