Birds x Cats Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Post Report Post to a Moderator        IP Information Go to the top of this page

Hi all,

Tatsunoko announced on February 22nd, that a new Gatchaman-related campaign will begin soon. If you've ever wished to see our favorite bird team done in cat form, well, wish granted!

Gatchanyan is on the way. It will be the first entry in what's being called the "Creanyaa Project" (Creative + nyaa) where various designers will do mash-ups of famous animation characters as cats. Our beloved Ninja Team will be called, "Science Ninnya Team Gatchanyan."

What's all this "Nya / nyaa" business? For anyone unaware, "Nyaa" is the Japanese onomatopoeic or mimetic word for "Meow." We could even call it "Gatchameow" and it would still work.

Here is the first promotional image of the Ninnya Team - "Gatchanyan Design 001" by Naomi Iwata:
 

More details about the project will be coming on April 1. No, I do not think it is an April Fool's joke.

More soon,

The Other Jason

It kind of reminds me of Samurai Pizza Cats.

Hi all,

It took a little longer than expected, but there is some news about Gatchanyan - yes it has ended up being a real thing. The press release is below, along with two more artist's interpretations of the Ninja Team as cats.

Posted on Japanese site Starpet on July 10 was the following:

-------------------------------------------------------------

Big search for “Gatchanyan cat models” by J-Com Communication Planning
7/10/2018

 

Big search for model cats!

J:COM “Gather! Nationwide Starpet!” A collaboration with Tatsunoko Pro!

“Science Ninnya Team Gatchanyan”

 

 

Now, we’re searching for cats to act as “real Gatchanyan” models!
If you would like your pet to become a model cat for each character, please post!

Your pretty cat may be Gatchanyan!

Application method:
Post pictures to Instagram at ♯スタペ応募_ガッチャニャン!
We will tell you the results if you pass judgment
(Please understand we may not be able to answer your questions)
-------------------------------------------------------------
Here is the Instagram page so you can see entries:
https://www.instagram.com/_starpet_/

I like some of the little details in the new artist's pictures, like the bell collars and cat head-shaped bracelet faces in the first image by Suzuka Yoshida (daughter of Gatchaman creator, Tatsuo Yoshida)

Also, the little Berg Katse doll the Jinpei character is holding in the Tatsuo Hari image is cute (but the anus and nipple inclusions for each... not so much).

Keep an eye on the Instagram page to see if any of the posted cats remind you of Ninja Team members!

Who will look like Grumpy Cat?

At least have the guys look more male. There are some cats that you look at and can just tell they're male.

This makes me think about Disney's Aristocats.
