Anime review: Gatchaman Crowds Insight

A good day to you all. So, I’m writing this in the morning, when I’m awake for once (I procrastinated, which isn’t old news haha #sedstory). And so I’m just gonna go ahead and start with saying some stuff about this.

This is the second season of an anime I reviewed before (link at the end of the post). Previously, I liked the first season already. I binge-watched everything. When I look at the time, it was the season right before I began watching anime. I’ve been watching anime for about 2,5 years already. I have seen a ton…… (no-lifer here).  But back to the anime. It’s an original work, and I guess it was fairly successful? But anyways, let’s go to the next things, instead of me blabbering more nonsense

Gatchaman Crowds Insight theme 1


One day, a huge UFO spins over Japan and crashes into a rural farmland outside Nagaoka, disrupting Tsubasa Misudachi’s ordinary life. As the Gatchaman, the legendary defenders of Tachikawa City, supervise the ordeal, a peaceful alien creature emerges from the spacecraft. In the ensuing chaos, Tsubasa is given a special high-tech notebook, or NOTE, from Gatchaman founder J.J. Robinson, signalling Tsubasa’s sudden recruitment into their group. Under the tutelage of fellow hero Hajime Ichinose, Tsubasa slowly begins to adjust to life as a defender of justice.

Meanwhile, the CROWDS technology, which enables users to manifest their consciousness’ into a physical form, is spreading amongst the public, as well as being endorsed by Prime Minister Sugayama. However, a mysterious organization known as VAPE has gained notoriety by using unique red CROWDS to wreak havoc, shifting public opinion against the CROWDS technology. The Gatchaman, along with new recruit Tsubasa, must put a stop to their destructive activities before it’s too late.

So the synopsis isn’t that right actually, but since I need all the time I have, I’ll leave it be (have to work on school stuff in the morning too! Help QAQ).

The art is okay. It’s not my style, but nicely drawn. The style is really with a lot of contrasts and that’s what they want to see with the distinct personalities. So I guess, it’s fitting for the anime, but won’t really like it if used somewhere else.

The story. It’s okay. It’s not good, but the lesson you learn with the anime (I think there is a lesson) is pretty valuable. I mean, the story itself, you don’t totally know where it’s going, but you have some link at how things are with the first episode. It’s some month(s) after the first season, I think. It’s not really a bad story, since things get fixed, but it’s just…. a bit disappointing that the whole gatchaman isn’t more into fighting scenes and stuff. And the last fight is a bit…….overdramatic? It’s necessary, I saw, but still! Maybe a bit cruel for the younger viewers. I, myself, didn’t feel a lot with it, but maybe others did.Gatchaman Crowds Insight theme 2

The first protagonist, Hajime, is hereby really set to the background. I really liked how she was in this season. The previous one is okay, but still. She’s actually quite sensitive to everything and that’s what I love about her. There aren’t a lot of flaws at her, just that you question whether she’s actually super smart, or plainly dumb on how she acts, but how her actions affect others. I think the first one actually. The rest of the people…..were okay I guess? I’m just a fan of Hajime, so looked more forward to her scenes than others. Still, others were okay, and you saw the character development more at their side then at Hajime’s, but I guess that’s good.

I give this anime a 7,5/10. I liked the anime in general. The OP was really good and the Ed was heavy metal, so didn’t really like it ^.^”. It’s an okay, anime in general, where I just liked Hajime so much that I gave it a bit of a higher rate, than I originally had thought to give.


And that’s it for this week! And now I should go do my schoolwork! Bye bye.
