Gatchaman/BOTP

Hmmm...pity it's American story/art rather than Japanese, but I suppose that figures, it being BotP rather than Gatchaman...[Happosai]Not a big fan of pseudomanga or westernisation of anime & manga...

remebering Starfleet and something similar...

For me, that is the appeal of decent Japanese video games, anime (Japanese animation), manga (Japanese comic books), etc. -- they tend to have deep stories that usual leave their Western counterparts looking very one-dimensional.[Happosai]
