Original Name: Gatchaman Kurauzu
The series takes place in the early summer of 2015 and is set in the city of Tachikawa, Japan. A “second metropolis” of Tokyo, Tachikawa is protected by the Gatchaman, warriors who fight in special reinforced suits powered by the manifestation of their spiritual powers called NOTE. Following the introduction of their newest member, the energetic and cheerful Hajime Ichinose, the Gatchaman must deal with Berg Katze, an enigmatic alien creature bent on destroying Earth just like it did with several other planets in the past.
One year after Berg Katze is stopped, the CROWDS system developed by Rui Ninomiya, a computer specialist who also becomes part of the Gatchaman, has spread among the Japanese society, shortening the gap between the population and the government. However, this new era of peace is threatened by the mysterious organization “VAPE”, calling the Gatchaman to action once more, including a new member, the impulsive Tsubasa Misudachi, who becomes Hajime’s new partner.
