Editorial Reviews

Using amazing weapons powered by super-science, the international terrorist organization known as GALACTOR is out to steal all of Earth's resources for itself and its inhuman masters. Mankind's only hope? The International Science Organization and their elite strike force, the Science Ninja Team! But these five young heroes will have their work cut out for them as they take on the seemingly impossible task of defeating GALACTOR's horrific arsenal of mechanized weapons of mass destruction and endless armies of henchmen. Can costumed commandos Ken the Eagle, Joe the Condor, Jun the Swallow, Jinpei the Sparrow and Ryu the Owl really overcome such overwhelming odds? Utilizing the incredible technology and fighting techniques created by Dr. Nambu, and with the mighty ship the God Phoenix at their command, they just might! It's time for the bad guys to get old-schooled science-ninja style as Japan's original super team defeat evil, one flying kick at a time, in the legendary, one and only GATCHAMAN! "Includes the previously unreleased Gatchaman OVAs!"

I admit, I have not yet watched ALL of Gatchaman on Blu Ray. But I have completed 2 discs on Blu Ray, and spot checked others.

The good news is, if you want Gatchaman with the best image quality available, this is the set to buy.

The bad news is, if you hate Sentai's subtitle font on other releases (they are GIGANTIC because they use their old DVD subs I believe), that hasn't changed. The other bad news is the extras. What's wrong with the extras?

1) Not all of the extras from the original DVD releases are included. Where is the translated Manga they had? Gone, that's where.
2) 1080p. S T R E T C H E D from SD sources. Yes, they cropped this into a 16x9 format. Graphics look ugly, people look fat. Why did they do that here, in the extras, but left the original video intact? I'm not sure, maybe they assume no one cares about the extras like they would the series proper?

If you can live with stretched extras, some of the original DVD extras missing, but want the best video quality possible, then this is the set for you.

Gatchaman - Science Ninja Team Gatchaman is also known as Battle of the Planets or G-Force. This collection is the full, complete, uncut original Japanese version of the series. In case you weren't aware, BoP and G-Force were cut from this series to be created.

Science Ninja Team Gatchaman is an Anime series from 1972 that ran through 1974 and comprises 105 episodes. Also included are the OVAs from the series, the 3 episode OVA.

Video:

High quality, but you have to remember the source. The video is a lot less grainy than the original DVDs, and there is no longer odd compression blocks appearing around dark lines (such as outlines on characters).

For some reason Best Buy shipped this to me sooner than the tenth of December. So I will go ahead and review this.

First this is the unedited Gatchaman, known mostly in the United States as "Battle of the Planets" or "G-Force: Guardians of Space".

This unedited edition contains all 105 unedited dubbed episodes. It has wonderful dub work and the voice actors seem to fit the characters rather well. I have no complaints about the dubbing. I can say it's a lot better voice work than "Battle of the Planets" which made Jinpei a babbling idiot.

What does unedited mean? Simply put, it really is nothing more than what you saw on "Battle of the Planets" or "G-force", however, this unedited edition of the show does not sugar coat death. Soldiers of the evil organization the team fights die, unlike the other shows passing them off as robots or the deaths are just softened. Also the issue of Transgenderism is taken out of the show all together in both "Battle of the Planets" and "G-force". In this edition they leave the whole story line in tact with one of the characters transgender nature. One episode does have nudity, but it's very brief and for the most part forgettable (Its of a young girl showering, with just the backside shown). Also in the unedited edition their is some cursing, but not enough to really worry about. Over all, I would still call this kid friendly for a more mature child about the age of 13 on up. I would give the show a PG-13 rating.

The show is listed as 16:9. Which scared me at fist, but lucky all the episodes are in a 4:3 aspect ratio. As one review posted the extra's are in 16:9, which I can not figure out why they would do so.

I remember watching Battle of the Planets when I was a child and understood much later that the show was edited which included ridiculous scenes of a robot who was never originally there to begin with. So brings the reality of Gatchaman! Having bought some bootleg DVD sets in the past, this OFFICIAL BLU-RAY release is the ONLY way to go! I usually consider myself a purist and prefer to watch the show in its original Japanese language with the English subtitles, but the newly created English language track is fantastic and the voices appropriately match the characters spot on (not the English dub crap that was in Battle of the Planets).

Both Japanese and English tracks are included here with optional English subtitles. For sound quality, the Japanese track seems to sound weak and loses depth, whereas the English track sounds full and rich. For this reason, I watch Gatchaman in English.

The video quality is superb! Many of the scenes look as if it was produced yesterday. This is the best we're going to see it.

As for the extras, I haven't looked into this yet, but read many reviews on it which gives me a good idea what to expect.

THIS SHOW IS ADDICTING! I can't seem to stop watching it!

The quality of these is probably the best they could do with such an old cartoon/anime. This was my favorite cartoon as a kid, but back then it was known as Battle of the Planets, & G-Force. I might bump this up to 5 stars once I watch a few more episodes, but this is blowing me away. I've never seen the full versions of these episodes with their original Japanese language. A good collection for fans of the series who've never purchased any of the former DVD versions that have been mentioned here.
