Super Science Ninja Team Gatchaman (or known as Battle of the Planets in the English version) was one of my dad’s favorite cartoons. Naturally this meant that I watched a ton of it myself, so I’m very invested in this (although I really haven’t seen the original Gatchaman). To make up for that Gatchaman CG project horribly canceled in 2011, a live action version is releasing in Japan this August. I need subtitles badly. Heck, this looks so amazing that I don’t even need to know what anyone is saying.
The G-Force team is all there. The suits look good (like a mix between a Kamen Rider and some kind of awesome), the guy who played ShinkenRed in Samurai Sentai Shinkenger (Power Rangers Samurai in America) plays Ken/Mark, and PHOENIX. I’ll import a DVD or something when it releases. So cool.[via Japanator]
