Animatsu Acquries Gatchaman Crowds for UK Release


Last week Animatsu officially arrived onto the UK scene by announcing its intentions and presence for the UK Anime Market; and today that presence has been expanded with the confirmation, via the latest issue of NEO, that Animatsu have acquired the UK rights to Gatchaman Crowds.

As we don’t have a copy of NEO ourselves we don’t know if ‘any additional’ details were listed; so in the meantime here is a synopsis of what to expect from the anime itself:

For most of the residents of Tachikawa city, life seems to be perfectly normal. That’s how it seems, but the truth, known only by a tiny select handful, is that this is a city at war. Every day, as the citizens go about their business, they are under attack by alien criminals and mysterious organizations seeking to conquer, enslave and destroy. But to combat these threats, a covert council has secretly selected certain individuals to serve as protectors.

Wearing special suits that amplify latent powers hitherto unsuspected, they blend into the crowds and shadows, waiting until the call is given to fight again. They could be anyone: your neighbor, your best friend’s mom, even high school students like Sugune Tachibana and recent college grad Joe Hibiki. And needless to say, schoolgirl artist Hajime Ichinose is probably the last person anyone would ever suspect of being a soldier entrusted with defending mankind. But she is, even if as the latest recruit she still has an awful lot of learning to do. Hiding like ninjas, powered by super-science, they are humanity’s first and greatest line of defense.

This brings the total number of Animatsu anime acquistions to four, with Blade And Soul, Comic Artist and His Assistants and Coffin Princess, all being announced last week during the companies debut and thus another four Sentai Filmwork owned titles are still yet to be confirmed.

Animatsu have yet to ‘fully’ detail their release plans for these titles but we assume we can ‘at least’ expect to seem them on DVD in the near future.
