Old-school anime fans who watched animes way back in the 80s should remember this one (other than just Gunbuster or EVA).. "Science Ninja Team Gatchaman" or as it is known in Japan as "Kagaku Ninjatai Gatchaman" will be made as a CGI movie..
Yes, it was shown here in Singapore long ago as "G-Force: Guardians of Space", it showcase 5 young superhero ninja in the employ of Dr. Kozaburo Nambu of the fictitious "International Science Organization" to fight against a group of technologically advanced villains, known as Galactor, from trying to take control of the earth's natural resources...
Characters in the show (Not in any order): Ken Washio, Joe Asakura, Jun, Jinpei and Ryu Nakanishi..
Seems abit typical anime series to you right? Well, it is one of the more successful Henshin Super Sentai-type series that spawned many other five-hero team series..
I could still remember the good old days when "G-Force: Guardians of Space" was shown here.. The characters weren't even called by their original Japanese names..
Their name were changed: Ken Washio as Ace Goodheart, Joe Asakura as Dirk Daring, Jun as Agatha June, Jinpei as PeeWee and Ryu Nakanishi as Hoot Owl.. o.O
GodPheonix, the team's main vehicle in CGI..
Well, the movie is gonna be produced by Imagi Animation Studios which released the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles CGI sequel.. The movie is slated to be released in 2009..
Recently, a short 10-second teaser trailer was just released and it was awesome.. Well, couldn't help it since no character were shown yet.. We will have to wait and see for more new updates on the Gatchaman movie..
Well, here is the teaser trailer:
