I've known "Gatchaman" as "Battle of the Planets" in 1979 and I was 10 years old by then. My favorite episode in this DVD is "The Camera Iron Shutter Killer-Episode 48". In "Battle of the Planets" version is "Raid On A Nearby Planet". I've seen this episode for so many times during "Battle of the Planets" time. I really like the moments in this episode when Ken The Eagle put his hands around Jun The Swan's shoulders. I also saw these episode in "G-Force" version and I saved it in my betamax tape. The sad thing is "Battle of the Planets" and "G-Force" are no longer aired in the Philippines and the betamax tape is gone. After so many years of waiting to see it again, I've search the internet. I figure it out that my favorite cartoon was a translated version from original "Gatchaman". Until I found Amazon.com, and selling Gatchaman DVDs. When I saw the episodes included in Gatchaman Vol.8, I found my favorite episode. And finally I owned it now as a Gatchaman version. And of course I used my digital camera to take the pictures of my favorite moments in Episode 48. Thank You Amazon!!!
