Re: Gatchaman and more no longer on HiDive

Hiya Hinotori! I can only image the executive’s conversation after the fan reaction… “Oh, boy. That didn’t go over well.” “Do you think we should change it? I mean, these are fans of the series, and who would make a better test audience for the name than them? If they don’t like it…” “No. We’ve spen...

Re: Funko Pop! Gatchaman Figures

Oh goodness! I think I may have to get these... I like that they included the weapons - and that Joe has both his cable gun and feather shuriken! That was a nice touch. Once you Pop!, you can't stop! Oh wait... someone's already using that. ;-D I was a bit surprised at the attention to little thing...

Re: Things Battle Of The Planets got away that could never happen in a kids show today

Hi Bobkat, The ending of "Race Against Disaster" makes me mad. Not that Lucy self-destructs, but Zark's attitude toward the whole situation. This is going to be with Jason for a long time. He won't just "get over it." :evil: Yeah, I completely agree. I know a lot of fans who were pretty ticked at Za...

Re: Things Battle Of The Planets got away that could never happen in a kids show today

Hi Cure DragonEagle, I love how Race Against Disaster basically is a covert criticism of the whole "They are robots. They can die. They dont matter" thing without even intending to be lol. That's very true. I wonder if anyone ever considered that while putting the episode together? Viewers weren't s...

Re: Gatchaman and more no longer on HiDive

Hi Hinotori! Welcome to the boards. :-) Yes. I wish they had picked a less silly sounding name for the show's English title. *cough*Egobossler = Happy Boy*cough* Well, yeah... there was that. "Happy Boy" sure didn't leave many fans feeling that way. :-) I think there actually was some audible coughi...

Re: BotP Close-up 003

Ha ha, "Zarkadia nonsense" is right. I always wondered what the inhabitants of this "new" fully-developed planet on a par with Earth, thought about being told they were named "Zarkadia." Other than that, I agree, it was a very solid episode, especially for being so early in the series' run. Great an...

Re: Gatchaman and more no longer on HiDive

Yes. I wish they had picked a less silly sounding name for the show's English title. I think kids here in the US could have handled Sanshiro , for example (not that it ever would have been screened here in the 60s or 70s). Or something to do with the color "red." But Judo Boy takes away from the mos...

Re: Today is the day!

Ha ha! Yes, very true. I don't stop to think about the significance of this anniversary for Battle very often. Thanks for the reminder!

Oh yeah... and Star Wars too. ;)

Gatchaman and more no longer on HiDive

Hi all, In yet another move that seems to indicate Tatsunoko Production's licenses are reaching their ends through Sentai Filmworks , both the original Gatchama n series and Battle of the Planets are no longer available to stream via their HiDive service. Other Tatsunoko-produced series like Judy Bo...
