As audiences gear up for the brand new Gatchaman movie, the producers of a new Gatchaman anime series, Gatchaman Crowds, have given fans their first look at the G-suits three of the lead characters will be wearing when they go off to do science team ninja stuff. They are... non-traditional, let's say.

Eschewing the birdlike look of the original Gatchaman team, these new designs have a considerably more ominous look to them, even though one guy, Joe Hibiki, looks like basically an armored Firestorm. The other two, Hajime Ichinose and Sugane Tachibana, have a more angelic, yet terrifying look to them.



Gatchaman Crowds premieres in Japan July 12. The movie, which will feature the original characters and designs, comes out Aug. 24.
