Gatchaman Crowds is my favorite anime to date, and I’m not sure that opinion will change anytime soon. As of writing, its second season, Insight, is airing and it’s just as impressive as the first season. It does best what it always does best; gets people thinking and talking. There’s so much to dissect from the show, and it’s all layered and presented so well that it’s easy to understand what it’s saying, but not so obnoxious in giving the message that it becomes off-putting. Insight is going a step further by supplying a mess of different viewpoints in its central issue of how the internet should be integrated into modern life, but it’s also bringing up something completely different for western audiences.
Please note that I am not saying this is how I view the series, but it is a view that’s worth exploring.
