Boys in uniform with a reasonably strong female role model for those of us who grew up in the seventies... Not surprising really.

Did I mention boys in uniforms?

Just leaving that one out there......... Angel1

My excuse for watching Gatch and falling in love with it (the same as I've watched other anime) is that I'm the youngest child after two boys and I had no option but to watch what the boys liked! I admit that this I had done without regretting it a little bit because I immediately became a fan of anime especially those concerning wars, robotics, romance, myth, etc. I also loved the type of artwork and, yes ... I must be honest ... even the hot guys, with or without uniforms!!! John, I'm fortunate enough to have been able to watch the original Gatchaman series way back in the 1980's on Italian channels, just after I've watched only a few episodes of BOTP! I also had the opportunity to watch Gatch II and Gatch F one after the other! Gatch F I've watched more than once!

Very lucky indeed.

Looks like I'll have to settle for watching Eagle Riders after I'm done with Gatchaman. At least for the near future. I already ordered a set of all 65 episodes of that series. As I've come to understand it, Eagle Riders is a combo between Gatchaman II and Gatchaman F.

Where did you find the set of Eagle Riders, John? I've been looking but have come up empty handed...

That's where I got mine last year, but the quality deteriorated with the later epoisodes. I suspect the seller makes copies of an original he/she has.

I cannot help you there because I did not need and have not watched Eagle Riders at all, but there are episodes of Gatchaman II and Gatchaman Fighter on Youtube if you wish to take a look ... the only thing is that they're in Japanese with no English subs or dub.

Hi all!

quote:

It is, with Gatchaman II heavily favored over Gatchaman Fighter. Of the 52 episodes of Gatchaman II, 47 were used in Eagle Riders, while only 18 of the 48 episodes of Gatchaman Fighter were used. As a result, the Gatchaman II story is kept fairly intact, but the Gatchaman Fighter story is a hurried, muddled mess with no real conclusion.

It should also be remembered that Eagle Riders used only the visuals from Gatchaman II and Gatchaman Fighter. The music and sound effects are like the English voices -- all added in America. So the new music sounds like something created on a Casio keyboard and the sound effects are like someone banging pots and pans together. The original music and effects were vastly superior, and it's a shame that Saban didn't want to spend a few extra dollars to get the rights to use them.

Which is exactly the case. The originals were all recorded by Kelly Lannan in Australia when the series aired down there. He made copies of his tapes for several people, and it is from those tapes that this seller created his master DVDs.

Sadly, Eagle Riders has never had an English language commercial release. With the rights for Gatchaman II and Gatchaman Fighter having now reverted to Tatsunoko, it is unlikely that we will ever have one. The entire series was released on DVD and VHS in France, and the first few episodes were released on DVD in Italy. Neither release has any language options beyond their native French and Italian dialogue.

That's the main reason I got the set, because they kept Gatchaman II's story intact. Since it's dubbed in English, I'll have a better idea of what's going on as well. It's unfortunate that Gatchaman F didn't get the same treatment.

That's a bummer, but I kind of expected that given what others have done with the series in the past.

quote:

As James said, I think that's the case. Only a handful of episodes made it to the US, but over in Australia, every episode was aired.

I saw that you can buy Gatchaman II on DVD on ebay and ioffer, but it doesn't have English subs. That's why I was thinking of perhaps watching Eagle Riders and getting to experience the story, and then maybe getting the Gatchaman II discs later. I guess that's one way I can still watch them with the music and sound effects intact.

The ioffer ones are supposedly a copy made from the laser discs...not sure of the quality of those.

Welcome John. Sorry I am late to extend my Owl welcome but it is nice to see you here and already comfortable enough to post comments.

It is always nice to see Gatch fans finding there way here.

As someone who bought the laser discs for all three TV series and the OAVs when they were first released, I can tell you that the video quality on those discs is excellent. At the time they were released, laser discs were the gold standard for quality home video. Of course, I can't speak for the quality of the recording equipment used by the seller, but their source material was great.

For some reason, Collection 6 and 7 of these boxed sets are incredibly hard to find for some reason. They do have them on the Amazon Marketplace, but they are $100. If anyone knows where I could find these sets PLEASE let me know, I’d appreciate it!

Anyway, now I’m watching the series with my 7 year old son and he loves it so far! It holds up very well, especially considering that this show is from the early 70’s. Can’t wait to watch more!

That's how I ended up here. I was looking for Gatchaman II subtitles and came across these forums.


Aye, velcome! Sorry, um, I've known about Gatchaman since I first saw G-Force in 1995, but I never became a fan until I got TvC, and because of that game, I'm a big fan of it now! And I'm slowly (I think) becoming a fan of Yatterman and Hurricane Polimer because of the game too. I really love using Zero (from Megaman X) and Ken The Eagle on a team. I want to write a fanfic about them, but I don't know how to set up the plot.

You don't have to come up with something elaborate. Even one scene is a good start. An obvious start would be, if Zero and Ken are fighting together, why are they fighting together? Whom are they fighting? What happens if they win, or lose?

For those of us who don't know the non-gatch characters, a couple of paragraphs of setup would not be amiss. That could cover how Zero and Ken met and ended up allies against whatever enemy.

And why their opponents chose to work together (or how the Big Bad is keeping these guys from killing each other).

If anything, Zero and Ken will not turn on each other. They will become friends. Thanks for the suggestions BTW!

Sorry I've been gone for a few weeks.

I bought Final Fantasy XIII and God of War III, which has been taking upmost of my free time.

PS: Im really enjoying both games!
