The Anime Network is picking up another classic today to add to their site with the OVA series from Gatchaman. The three part OVA series is one that was picked up by Sentai Filmworks when they grabbed all the old ADV Films materials and gave it a DVD and Blu-ray release last year while also putting out a separate DVD release for the OVAs for those that didn’t have them previously but had the entire TV series already. The three episodes are now available on The Anime Network here in both English language form and the original Japanese language track with English subtitles.
Plot concept: In 2066, shortly after a small country separates itself from the United Nations, members of the International Science Organization mysteriously disappear without a trace. Renowned scientist Kouzaburou Nanbu realizes that the secret organization known as the “Gallactor” is making its move to conquer the world. To counter this terrorist group, he prepares his ultimate weapon: five brave heroes that comprise the Science Ninja Team – Gatchaman.
