Live Action GATCHAMAN aka Battle of the Planets coming in August


Known to a lot of fans by the name of Gatchaman, Battle of the Planets and G-Force. This oldschool anime is now being adapted to a live action movie written by Yusuke Watanabe (20th Century Boys) and starring Tori Matsuzaka (.hack//The Movie), Go Ayano, Ayame Goriki, Tatsuomi Hamada and Ryohei Suzuk. The Nikkatsu produced film is scheduled for release in Japan on August 24, 2013.

Let’s just hope that like Rurouni Kenshin, Gatchaman comes to theaters here in the Philippines.


The five serve as agents of the International Science Organization in Tokyo in the near future. Galactor, a mysterious group whose technology far surpasses that of humans, has declared war on the entire world and has already subjugated half of it. A mysterious crystal-like object called a “stone,” is humanity’s only hope. Those who are able to draw out the power of the “stones” are forced to train to become special agents in a five-person team called “Gatchaman.”
