Imagi Studio's next big undertaking is the CG anime epic, Gatchaman. The first poster of hero Joe Asakura was revealed at the 2009 Tokyo Anime Fair, and he's lookin' mighty sharp.

The feature film focusing on the Science Ninja Team Gatchaman is supposed to come out in 2010. The group is made up of 5 smart characters, with equally stunning bird-like suits and helmets, based on the fantastic 1970s Anime series. We eagerly await the release, because it looks smooth as hell based on the concept art we've already seen.

And this totally makes up for the "G-Force" trailer that came out recently. Fracking Guinea pigs?

Anyways, love Battle of the Planets when I was a lad. I can see some changes to make it a little less silly, but please keep the PC police away from Kheops' speech impediment and Mark's bad-assery.

And Zoltar was never shown to be a woman, but it was implied by his unmasking and a huge mane of blonde hair was revealed , but no face. thats all I remember from about 30 years ago.
