Sentai Filmworks Licenses "Gatchaman Crowds insight"
HOUSTON, AUGUST 20, 2015 – You can’t keep a good Gatchaman down, and Sentai Filmworks is proud to announce the return of one of Japan’s most iconic super teams with its latest acquisition, Gatchaman Crowds insight. Picking up where the hit Gatchaman Crowds left off, Gatchaman Crowds insight flips the premise of its predecessor to explore the more dangerous side of the same technology. After all, arch villain Berg Katze wasn’t destroyed, so much as he was absorbed, and if globally connected networks of super beings can be used for great good, they can also be used for the purposes of evil. When the Prime Minister is attacked by a mysterious new organization, suspicions flare as to who is ultimately responsible, and who the public can actually trust.
Originally broadcast in Japan on Nippon TV, the legendary production company Tatsunoko (Speed Racer, Casshern Sins, Southern Cross, Genesis Climber Mospeada, Full Metal Panic? Fumoffu) once again produces the 12 episode series, with director Kenji Nakamura (tsuritama, Mononoke) and series composer Toshiya Ono (tsuritama, Perfect Insider) reprising their roles. Also returning are character designer Yûichi Takahashi (tsuritama, Macross Frontier) working from original designs by Kinako, and the music production team of Kazuhiro Watanabe (Wolf Girl & Black Prince, La Corda d'Oro Blue Sky) and Takao Kondo (Brynhildr in the Darkness, Wolf Girl & Black Prince, InuYasha – The Final Act).
Gatchaman Crowds insight is already available through select digital outlets. Further details on the home video release to follow.
