Well that’s a rather interesting choice by TAN…

ANO - Premium
Hulu - Free

Another interesting thing about this, there’s a Sentai Filmworks logo on the banner as well as a Tatsunoko copyright.
Makes one wonder if this is part of the Tatsunoko deal as well.

Seems the TAN stream got changed to Free as well.


It more then likely was part of the deal . Sandy Frank’s license to it ran out in 2007 . I think Sentai Filmworks may have picked up all of the Gatchaman and related products .

I wonder if we’ll be getting II and Fighter in the near future

Oh. Wow. Battle of the Planets is here?!! :woohoo: No kidding, this series really did start it all for me. Or it at least gave me a bit of the anime bug as a child, only to fully form later. So glad to see it back and easily accessible. Currently watching Gatchaman Dub on SVOD and will be glad to see Battle show up there too. In the meantime, i will check it out and relive, even if it’s a little hazy, a faved childhood memory.

[size=20]Japan’s d-rights Collaborate on Nelvana’s Battle of the Planets/Gatchaman Reboot[/size]
posted on 2015-01-18 23:57 EST

Canadian media company Corus Entertainment confirmed on Tuesday that its subsidiary Nelvana will be working with Japanese production company d-rights on production of a new Battle of the Planets (Gatchaman) animated series. The company announced the series in November as a collaboration with the Beyblade team.

In addition, Corus unveiled the tentative title Battle of the Planets: Phoenix Ninjas. The series will be aimed at boys ages 6 to 11. Nelvana’s co-head Andrew Kerr stated, “The series will be new, but will feature the same big action stories and compelling characters.”

Corus plans to launch the reboot in Fall of 2017.

Tatsunoko Production’s first Science Ninja Team Gatchaman anime premiered in October of 1972 and earned an average rating of 21%. It was only planned for two quarters (kūru or cours) of a year, but was extended to two full years and 105 episodes. It has since spawned anime films as well as later television and video series. The first anime projects in the Gatchaman franchise were adapted, with varying degrees of faithfulness, into English under the names Battle of the Planets, G-Force, and Eagle Riders.

In Japan, the franchise inspired a spinoff series called Gatchaman Crowds last year. The franchise also inspired a live-action film starring Tori Matsuzaka, Gō Ayano, Ayame Gōriki, Tatsuomi Hamada, and Ryōhei Suzuki last year. NTV ran Ohayō Ninja-Tai Gatchaman, an anime series of one-minute flash short in 2011. The second Gatchaman Crowds season, tentatively titled Gatchaman Crowds insight, is planned for this year with returning characters.
