#022 About the nostalgic anime "Gatchaman"

Blog topics are really difficult

 It's been almost two years since I started this blog. This time it's #22. On average, it has increased a little less than once a month, but recently it has fallen to a pace of once every two months. My goal is once every other week, and ideally I want to update my blog every week, but I don't have much to say, and I'm in such a disappointing situation.

The root of the problem is that we have imposed a constraint that the subject of the blog should be about the company and its products. Doing so will inevitably lead to uniformity in the material, and it will tend to run out quickly. In the past 22 times, only 2 times, #17 and #19, have completely ignored this restriction.

At the very least, it's hard to say whether we should focus on Sundance and its products, or whether we should give priority to frequency.

There's no point in thinking about this and that, so I'm going to give priority to frequency, which is my current problem, and write stories freely.

Now let's move on to this topic. Please stay with us until the end.

Kobe Sun TV morning rebroadcast anime

 From 7:30 in the morning from Monday to Friday, there is a rebroadcast of a nostalgic anime on Sun TV in the Kansai area. In recent years, "Alps no Shoujo Heidi" and "Jarinko Chie" have been broadcast, and I recorded them every day and looked forward to them. And from March 14, the broadcast of "Science Ninja Team Gatchaman" began. The theme song that was broadcast all 105 times from 1972 to 1974 is a very famous work.

When you watch the anime you watched as a child again as an adult, you may be surprised to get a completely different impression, or to empathize with a character you never imagined. It's interesting and I love reruns of anime. Of course, I had seen "Science Ninja Team Gatchaman", and I thought I knew the characters and the general story. But this is the first time I've watched it from the first episode. I've already watched up to episode 11. Write down what you noticed or what surprised you.

Hard worker Jun the swan

 First of all, the only female member of the Science Ninja Team, the beautiful girl Science Ninja Team G-3 Swan Jun (pronounced as "Shiratori" instead of "Hakuchou").

First of all, she is 16 years old. She is a first year high school student. She is half Japanese and half American, and for some reason she was raised in an orphanage. What's more surprising is that she runs a go-go cafe called "Snack J" (a café like a disco or a club where you can dance, which was popular at the time). she is 16 years old. How did she get her business license?

On top of that, the younger brother who grew up in the same orphanage, Science Ninja Team G-4.  Swallow Jinbei(Not "tsubame" but "Tsubakuro is read as Jinpei.) is employed as a waiter. By the way, Jinbei's age is 11 years old. I'm 5th grade. This is a complete violation of the Child Welfare Act.

Belongs to the Science Ninja CorpsThe International Science and Technology Agency also forces elementary school students to do dangerous missions, so it's completely out, but if you say that, it doesn't make a hero story, so even if you close your eyes, you can't have a child doing a barber shop. After all, there is only discomfort. I think Showa was loose, but I didn't think it would be this loose.

 The next thing that surprised me was that she didn't care if her underwear was visible during battle.

Depending on the cut, the white underwear is completely visible just by standing normally.

Of course, it's a life-or-death battle, so she can't afford to worry about whether she can see her panties, and she doesn't have any responsibility.

All the blame lies with Dr. Nambu, who forces 16-year-old girls to wear extreme miniskirts and participate in combat.

He commands the Science Ninja Corps with the body of the world's brains, but his true identity is a 48-year-old perverted old man.
