Gatchaman OVA

Gatchaman (ガッチャマン) aka Gatchaman '94 is a three-part (OVA) reboot/remake based on the original anime. It was released in Japan and the United States during the mid-1990s. This version of Gatchaman is set in the year 2066 where the evil leader of the nation of Hontwall is threatening to take over the planet. Scientists from the International Science Organization are disappearing and only five teenage heroes, the Science Ninja team, can stop the disaster. The OVAs were licensed by Urban Vision through Harmony Gold USA and were released on VHS and DVD. At Anime Boston 2013, Sentai Filmworks had announced that they have rescued the OVA series along with the original 1970s series for a DVD re-release in October of that year.

There are two dubs of the OVA: The original Harmony Gold/Urban Vision release from 1997, as well as the 2013 dub by Sentai Filmworks. The latter reunited the cast of the ADV Films dub of the Gatchaman series, and was done to maintain consistency with that version.

Notes

  • In the first OVA episode, the door on Ryu's boat rental shop has a life preserver ring with the numbers "19 72" on it. This is a reference to the year the original series debuted.
